26 And He said, "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, 27 and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. 28 For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. 29 But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come." Mark 4:26-29 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, plant your Spirit in our hearts and let it bring forth an abundant harvest.

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17 (NKJV)
     Give us wisdom, Lord, so that we will know how to walk in this time. Help us undersand and do your will.

18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, 20 giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another in the fear of God. Ephesians 5:18-21 (NKJV)
     Father, let the river of your Spirit flow through us so that we overflow with thanksgiving.

8 "Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the LORD, have created it. Isaiah 45:8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, pour down on us.

1 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Psalm 37:1-2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, preserve us from fretting.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:3-4 (NKJV)
     LORD, help us daily find our delight in you.

5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. 6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37:5-6 (NKJV)
     Thank you, Jesus, that you can do what we cannot.

     Lord, we are come to that place where none of us wanted to be: our earthly shepherd, Bishop Bill, is being taken from us. We turn to you, Jesus, to shepherd and guide us through this time.

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, lead us to pastures where we may be fed with your living word.

3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Psalm 23:3 (NKJV)

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 (NKJV)
     Father, we are walking through that valley where there is a death of much that we have known and loved. Help us love you more and the rod and staff of your discipline. I have no fear because I know you hold my life in your hand.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Psalm 23:5 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please prepare a table for us, even in the presence of our enemies. We ask for the anointing of your Holy Spirit. Let you cup of mercy overflow for us.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever. Psalm 23:6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, we trust that goodness and mercy will follow us close behind, coming between us and what is past and dead. Holy God, we long to dwell in your house forever; you are our resting place forever.

A Word Received: Let me shepherd and guide you. You are in my hand and I will lead you to green pastures if you will only let me.

31 But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, Who touched Me?' " 32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. Mark 5:31-33 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, encourage us to step out in faith and tell of our experience with Jesus.

34 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." Mark 5:34 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help us by faith to receive your healing.

35 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue's house who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?" 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe." Mark 5:35-36 (NKJV)
     Father, please help us believe in Jesus and what he can do to revive what appears to be dead in the church.

1 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead), Galatians 1:1 (NKJV)
     Jesus, raise up more apostles who receive their calling from you rather than from men.

6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, Galatians 1:6 (NKJV)
     Lord, so many have turned aside to other paths and other gospels.

10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 (NKJV)
     LORD, this diocese is being refined in the furnace of affliction.

1 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. 3 The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed. Psalm 41:1-3 (NKJV)
     Father, help us remember and consider the poor in their time of affliction.

1 Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The goodness of God endures continually. 2 Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. 3 You love evil more than good, Lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah 4 You love all devouring words, You deceitful tongue. Psalm 52:1-4 (NKJV)
     Father, have mercy on us for there are many who love devouring words.

I Am The Bread of Life

8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:8 (NKJV)
