Pray for Bishop Dave Bena who will be having a stent put in during heart surgery'

And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 1 Corinthians 2:1 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us recognize our need for you to be witnesses to Jesus.

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2 (NKJV)
     Lord, move our "knowledge" from our heads to our hearts.

I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 1 Corinthians 2:3 (NKJV)
     Father, please help me trust in your strength rather than in my own.

And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 1 Corinthians 2:4 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me communicate the simplicity of the gospel through the power of your Holy Spirit.

that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:5 (NKJV)
     Father, you are my faith and my confidence. Help me put my whole trust in you.

However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 1 Corinthians 2:6 (NKJV)
     Lord, set us free from the folly of this age.

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, search my heart.

A Word Received: Trust me to open my word to you.

Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead.

     Holy Spirit, help us heed your "No," as well as your "Yes."

Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. Acts 16:9-10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please give us a clear vision of your call to us.

Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. John 12:3 (NKJV)

"You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.' But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:21-22 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us recognize the great danger we are in with our anger against anyone.

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help us bring to your altar the gift you truly desire -- reconciliation in your Body.

Sing aloud to God our strength; make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob. Psalm 81:1 (NKJV)
     LORD, please give me strength to endure.

I am the LORD your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10 (NKJV)
     Father, help me receive your bounty.

"Oh, that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! Psalm 81:13 (NKJV)
     Help us listen to you, Jesus; help us hearken to your word.

A Word Received: Open the door of your heart to me so that I may enter in.

Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?" John 11:39-40 (NKJV)

Then Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You." Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." John 11:21-24 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us all live in the hope of the resurrection.

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I believe in you.

Please pray for Bishop Bill and the clergy and laity of this diocese as we cope with the decisions of the Episcopal General Convention.

When Jesus heard that, He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it." John 11:4 (NKJV)
     Lord, I pray that all our sicknesses will end in bringing your Father glory.

"But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." John 11:10 (NKJV)
     Jesus, let your light shine in me.

Then Jesus said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him." John 11:14-15 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, thank you for showing me that death is not the end.

Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead. However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. Acts 14:19-20 (NKJV)
     Father, please help us have Paul's courage to go back when we have been rejected.

And when they had preached the gospel to that city and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God." Acts 14:21-22 (NKJV)
     Lord, you have promised tribulations; don't let us be shocked when these things happen.

So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Acts 14:23 (NKJV)
     Father, raise up elders of your choosing so that your people will be commended to the Lord in whom they have believed.

Have I not wept for him who was in trouble? Has not my soul grieved for the poor? But when I looked for good, evil came to me; and when I waited for light, then came darkness. Job 30:25-26 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help us go through the hard times.

Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy. Psalm 33:3 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me sing that new song and fill my heart with your presence.

The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Psalm 33:10-11 (NKJV)
     LORD, establish your counsel in the place of man's counsel in your church/

He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. Psalm 33:15 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for dealing with us individually.

A Word Received: Seek my word; seek it day by day.
