Father, please help me learn from you and so come to Jesus.
"I am the bread of life." John 6:48 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me feed on you and receive you into my heart.
"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." John 6:51 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me in receiving Jesus through his body and blood to enter into eternal life.
And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Acts 9:17 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us as you did Ananias to be able to go to our persecutors and say "Brother Saul, Jesus has sent me to you."
Praise the LORD! I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation. Psalm 111:1 (NKJV)
LORD, help me praise you as I ought.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me learn wisdom and good understanding.
The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6 (NKJV)
Thank you you for being at my side and setting me free of fear of what man can do to me.
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 118:29 (NKJV)
Thank you for your enduring mercy.
A word received: Reach out to your persecutors as Ananias did. (Acts 9:17)
