Matthew 14:16 (NKJV)
But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
Jesus, show me when and how to do this.
Revelation 15:2-4 (NKJV)
And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, for Your judgments have been manifested."
Holy Spirit, help me join in that great chorus singing the praises of God.
Ezra 8:21-23 (NKJV)
Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions. For I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying, "The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him." So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer.
Father, carry us the whole distance with your protecting hand upon us.
Psalm 69:1-3 (NKJV)
Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying; my throat is dry; my eyes fail while I wait for my God.
Father, hear the cry of my heart.
Psalm 69:5-6 (NKJV)
O God, You know my foolishness; and my sins are not hidden from You. Let not those who wait for You, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed because of me; let not those who seek You be confounded because of me, O God of Israel.
Lord, you know my folly, cover my sins with your blood.
Psalm 69:35-36 (NKJV)
For God will save Zion And build the cities of Judah, that they may dwell there and possess it. Also, the descendants of His servants shall inherit it, and those who love His name shall dwell in it.
LORD, I love your name, grant that I may dwell with you.
Word: Rest in me. Rest in my arms oflove. Lay your burdens at my feet.
