Now when they drew near Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples; and He said to them, "Go into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has sat. Loose it and bring it. And if anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' say, 'The Lord has need of it,' and immediately he will send it here." Mark 11:1-3 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me follow Jesus' directions even when they seem foolish.

Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" Mark 11:9-10 (NKJV)
     Father, help me join that throng shouting "Hosanna" to Jesus.

"It may be that the LORD will look on my affliction, and that the LORD will repay me with good for his cursing this day." 2 Samuel 16:12 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me trust in your justice and mercy.

A Word Received: You are in my care; don't be afraid.

Pray for Bishop Dan for renewed strength and confidence in Jesus' healing power.

Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Mark 10:46-47 (NKJV)
     Lord, we are all beggars in your sight; it's just that many of us don't recognize it as Bartimaeus did.

Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" Mark 10:48 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me repent of trying to stifle the cries of those in need.

So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, "Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you." Mark 10:49 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please bid me come to you day by day.

And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. Mark 10:50 (NKJV)
     Father, please help me cast aside anything that hinders my coming to Jesus.

So Jesus answered and said to him, "What do you want Me to do for you?" The blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight." Mark 10:51 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please give us sight of what you are doing among us.

Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road. Mark 10:52 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I pray for healing faith. Thank you.

Then a certain Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good testimony with all the Jews who dwelt there, came to me; and he stood and said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight.' And at that same hour I looked up at him. Acts 22:12-13 (NKJV)
     Jesus, at your bidding, help me go by faith even to those who persecute your people.

Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Psalm 51:6 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, bring me to inward truth; set me free from self-deception.

A Word Received: I have blessed you; come to me with thanksgiving.

Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, "Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask." Mark 10:35 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, set me free from self-seeking prayer.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." Mark 10:42-45 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me have a servant's heart.

When he reached the stairs, he had to be carried by the soldiers because of the violence of the mob. Acts 21:35 (NKJV)

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I that I shall see you with joy on that last day when you raise me from the dead.

     Jesus, help me live for you and not for myself.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1-2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me find my delight in you and your ways.

He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:3 (NKJV)

"But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh." Mark 10:6-8 (NKJV)
     Lord, half of me has died.

On the next day we who were Paul's companions departed and came to Caesarea, and entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him. Acts 21:8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please anoint more evangelists among us.

Then Paul answered, "What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." So when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, "The will of the Lord be done." Acts 21:13-14 (NKJV)
     Father, we pray for your will to be done.

As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:1-2 (NKJV)

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God. Psalm 42:11 (NKJV)
     LORD, I place my hope in you and trust that you will raise me up on that last day.

A Word Received: Wait on me; listen to me.
