Holy Spirit, help me take Jesus just "as he is".
But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" Mark 4:38 (NKJV)
Jesus, so often I have come to you wondering if you care that I am perishing in the storm. Have mercy and forgive me and help me trust you in the storm. Thank you for the many storms you have carried me through.
Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation? 2 Corinthians 11:29 (NKJV)
Father, please give me a heart that burns with indignation when your little ones are made to stumble.
then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering." Judges 11:31 (NKJV)
LORD, preserve me from rash vows.
Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD! Psalm 117:1-2 (NKJV)
LORD, help me rejoice in your trust and praise you for all you done for me.
O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Psalm 139:1-6 (NKJV)
LORD, you know me through and through and have set a hedge of love about me. Thank you.
If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You. Psalm 139:11-12 (NKJV)
LORD< help me walk by your light when all else is dark.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You. Psalm 139:17-18 (NKJV)
Jesus, each morning when I awake, you are there with me. Thank you.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, lead me in the way everlasting.
A word received: I AM your guide and your shelter. Trust me in the storm.
