Holy Spirit, move among us in this diocese to raise up men and women and youths who will give their all for Jesus and so bear much fruit.
Father, you are Lord of the Harvest: send us into the harvest fields to bring in the full crop you have prepared for us.
Jesus, I am willing to be a grain of wheat for you. Help me join with you day by day in producing much grain.
A word received (11/18/06): Pray for the day of my threshing. Pray that none of the wheat will be lost with the chaff. Pray for my little ones who are being led astray by lies. Pray for my will to be done.
Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you, as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow laborers. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. (Philemon 1:23-25)
Jesus, help us to be fellow laborers for the gospel. Help us join with all those saints down through the ages whose passion for you was greater than any suffering they had to endure. Thank you.
Then King David went in and sat before the LORD; and he said: "Who am I, O Lord GOD? And what is my family, that You have brought me this far? (2 Samuel 7:18 )
Father, help me come to that place of stillness where I am at rest in your presence as David was with you. Thank you.
Cause me to hear your lovingkindness in the morning, for in you do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to you. (Psalm 143:8 )
Jesus, I lift up my soul to you.
A word received (11/28/13): I can set your spirit free from every snare of the evil one.
A word received: I AM living water; come to me and drink.
