Holy Father, help me daily feed on Jesus and his words.
Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized. So when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then Saul spent some days with the disciples at Damascus. Immediately he preached the Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God. Acts 9:18-20 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, I pray that the scales which blind your people will fall away; that they will spend time together; and begin preaching Jesus.
But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. And he declared to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. Acts 9:27 (NKJV)
Jesus, raise up many Barnabases in our generation who will recognize and bring the newly converted into the fellowship of believers.
"Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole. Job 5:17-18 (NKJV)
LORD, thank you for correcting me and for binding up my wounds. Please make me whole again.
For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with understanding. Psalm 47:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me praise you with understanding.
I will hear what God the LORD will speak, for He will speak peace to His people and to His saints; but let them not turn back to folly. Psalm 85:8 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me enter into your peace and turn away from folly.
