Jesus, please help me to keep praying and not lose heart.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. James 5:7-8 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, you have told me over and over again to wait and be patient; establish my heart and mind on Jesus, my rock and refuge.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness. Malachi 3:3 (NKJV)
LORD, purify me and purge me of sin so that I may offer my life to you in righteousness.
But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your "Yes," be "Yes," and your "No," "No," lest you fall into judgment. James 5:12 (NKJV)
Father, help me to be steady in keeping my word.
And I will come near you for judgment;
I will be a swift witness
Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans,
And against those who turn away an alien--
Because they do not fear Me," Says the LORD of hosts. Malachi 3:5 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us take all these judgments to heart in this country.
Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you," Says the LORD of hosts. "But you said, 'In what way shall we return?' " Malachi 3:7 (NKJV)
Help me return to you so that you will return to me.
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this," says the LORD of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10 (NKJV)
Lord GOD of Hosts, let our churches be storehouses of plenty where people may find food for their bodies and souls.
Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. Psalm 6:2 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus Christ, heal me and all those who suffer from arthritis or other bone diseases such as leukemia.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Psalm 20:7-8 (NKJV)
LORD, I put my trust in you.
A word received: When you are afraid, turn to me.
