And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and there He stayed. Then many came to Him and said, "John performed no sign, but all the things that John spoke about this Man were true." And many believed in Him there. John 10:40-42 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us seek out Jesus and believe in him.

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 1 John 3:1 (NKJV)
     Dad, thank you for making me your child.

Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. 1 John 3:6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me abide in you so that I may be set free from sin.

Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, "Let Me go, for the day breaks." But he said, "I will not let You go unless You bless me!" Genesis 32:24-26 (NKJV)
     Father, help me strive as Jacob did to receive your blessing.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 107:1 (NKJV)
     LORD, I give thanks to you for preserving my life and giving me new life in your Spirit.

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; they found no city to dwell in. Psalm 107:4 (NKJV)
     LORD, I wandered for many years. Thank you for bringing me home to you.

And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city for a dwelling place. Psalm 107:7 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, lead me forth in the right way. Thank you.

A Word Received: I Am the light for your path. Keep your eyes on me so that you may see the way to go.

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. John 10:1-2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, you are the only saving way into the sheepfold. There is no shortcut that works.

To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:3 (NKJV)
     Help us Jesus to hear your voice in this diocese.

And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. John 10:4 (NKJV)
     Lord, please go before us; lead the way in the months ahead.

Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." John 10:5 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, don’t let us be deluded into following strangers.

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. John 10:14 (NKJV)
     Father, thank you for sending Jesus to shepherd us.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us love Jesus rather than the world.

It is in my power to do you harm, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, 'Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad.' Genesis 31:29 (NKJV)
     Holy Trinity, One God, help us heed your admonitions to restrain our anger or desire for revenge.

It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void. Psalm 119:126 (NKJV)
     LORD, it is time for you to act; hear our cry to you.

The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130 (NKJV)
     Jesus, your word is my light for the path ahead.

Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133 (NKJV)
     Amen.

A Word Received: Leave your burdens with me; leave them in my care.

But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and received his sight, until they called the parents of him who had received his sight. John 9:18 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, open our eyes to what Jesus is doing among us. Don’t let us be blinded by preconceptions of what must be true.

His parents answered them and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; but by what means he now sees we do not know, or who opened his eyes we do not know. He is of age; ask him. He will speak for himself." His parents said these things because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had agreed already that if anyone confessed that He was Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue. John 9:20-22 (NKJV)
     Jesus, people are being driven from your church because they believe your word. Have mercy on us.

And Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind." John 9:39 (NKJV)
     Lord, there is a judgment coming upon your church, for its leaders are denying your sovereignty.

O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongs -- O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth! Rise up, O Judge of the earth; render punishment to the proud. LORD, how long will the wicked, how long will the wicked triumph? Psalm 94:1-3 (NKJV)
     LORD, do not let those who deny you word triumph over this diocese and our bishop.

Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O LORD, and teach out of Your law, that You may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for the wicked. For the LORD will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance. But judgment will return to righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it. Psalm 94:12-15 (NKJV)
     Father, we trust in you to be our help and our guide.

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1 (NKJV)
     LORD, we lift up a shout of praise to you. Thank you for your mighty deeds.

A Word Received: Do not be afraid, for I Am with you. You are in the shelter of my love for you.

Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. John 9:1-3 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, help all those who are struck down by disease or infirmity. Let your Father be glorified by their healing.

They brought him who formerly was blind to the Pharisees. Now it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to them, "He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see." Therefore some of the Pharisees said, "This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" And there was a division among them. John 9:13-16 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, set us and our shepherds free from legalism.

They said to the blind man again, "What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet." John 9:17 (NKJV)
     Jesus, open our eyes as well to who you are.

And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:4 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us know Jesus better so that our joy may be full.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, set us free from self-deception and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

He shall cry to Me, 'You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.' Psalm 89:26 (NKJV)
     Father, I cry out to you; you are my Father, my God and the rock of my salvation.

A Word Received: Continue to cry out to me for my people, for the lost and the least. Pray that I will shepherd my people and restore them to my flock.

Then Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!" Mark 10:23 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please protect us from the delusions of riches and the prosperity gospel.

And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, "Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God! Mark 10:24 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me put my whole trust in you.

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Mark 10:25 (NKJV)
     Father, the delusion of riches is so deadly. It is a virus which has spread among us.

And they were greatly astonished, saying among themselves, "Who then can be saved?" But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible." Mark 10:26-27 (NKJV)
     Father, thank you that you have sent Jesus and your Holy Spirit to save us from the delusion of riches.

Then Peter began to say to Him, "See, we have left all and followed You." Mark 10:28 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us leave behind whatever hinders us so that we too can follow Jesus wherever he leads.

So Jesus answered and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time--houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions--and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first." Mark 10:29-31 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for providing for me and my family all these years in Africa, America, and elsewhere.

A Word Received: I have come that you might have new life in my Father's kingdom. Embrace that provision and his kingdom.

On my way to the prayer table at the City Mission.


Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." John 8:58 (NKJV)
     

Who are you to judge another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:4 (NKJV)
     

For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. Romans 14:8-9 (NKJV)
     

for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 (NKJV)
     

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 136:1 (NKJV)
     

Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 136:2 (NKJV)
     

Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever: Psalm 136:3 (NKJV)

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." John 8:12 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me walk by your light.

Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also." John 8:19 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help me know Jesus and his Father better.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 (NKJV)
     Father, I surrender my life to you once again.

I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt; put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee; let me be full, let me be empty; let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
From the Watch Night Service by John Wesley.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, renew my mind.

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Romans 12:4-8 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me use my gifts for building up your Father’s kingdom.

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; Romans 12:10 (NKJV)
     Thank you, Jesus, for the love I experience in your body and from you.

rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; Romans 12:12 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me to be steadfast in prayer.

"Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me! There shall be no foreign god among you; nor shall you worship any foreign god. Psalm 81:8-9 (NKJV)
     LORD, the Episcopal Church has worshipped the gods of popular culture; have mercy on us and bring us back to you.
