Lord Jesus, so many of us are deceived by the cares and riches of this world and your word is chocked within us and we become unfruitful. (See Matthew 13:22) In your mercy come among us and clear away all the weeds and thorns that keep us from bearing fruit for your kingdom.
having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because "All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever." Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (1 Peter 1:23-25)
Holy Spirit, let your word endure forever in our hearts. Much is passing away that was beautiful, but we ask that you endure in us. Thank you.
The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)
Father, thank you for your goodness. Please help me trust more and more as each day goes by. Thank you for knowing me.
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; he shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore. (Psalm 121:7-8 )
LORD, thank you.
A word received: Look to me for help.
