Jesus, thank you for going ahead to Jerusalem for us when you knew what lay before you.
Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging. And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant. So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. And he cried out, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Luke 18:35-38 (NKJV)
Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on us!
Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" Luke 18:39 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us repent of trying to quiet those who cry out to Jesus in their hour of need.
And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God. Luke 18:43 (NKJV)
Father, let our healing bring you glory.
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 (NKJV)
Jesus, you are my foundation stone and the rock I want to build on.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness"; and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile." 1 Corinthians 3:19-20 (NKJV)
Lord, our generation has confused knowledge with true wisdom. Help me to fear you so that I may be wise.
Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just; for the righteous God tests the hearts and minds. My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart. Psalm 7:9-10 (NKJV)
Jesus, I look to you to be my guide and shepherd.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9 (NKJV)
Spring up, O Well, and bring joy to my soul.
A word received: Come! Come to my river of living water and you will be refreshed and made clean and whole.
