LORD, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word. Luke 2:29
LORD, your word gives life and peace; let my life end saturated with your word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Luke 2:30
Father, thank you for opening my eyes and giving me sight of your salvation.
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; Luke 2:31
Jesus, please help me make your saving work known to many peoples.
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles, and to be the glory of thy people Israel. Luke 2:32
Holy Spirit, let the light of your glory shine on my path and bring glory to many people. Thank you.
Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes." Luke 19:41-42 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us join with Jesus in weeping over our cities; for we have not recognized the day of Jesus' visitation.
Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it, Luke 19:45 (NKJV)
Jesus, we pray that you will drive out everything that corrupts your Body and ours. Let your Body be a place of prayer for all nations.
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Philippians 2:1-2 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, bring us to that unity that will bring joy to the saints in heaven and on earth.
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:5-8 (NKJV)
Help me have your mind, Jesus, and joyfully pay the cost of following you.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me join with Timothy and all your saints in making the good confession.
As for such as turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD shall lead them away With the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel! Psalm 125:5 (NKJV)
LORD, turn those who have gone aside to crooked ways back to your straight and narrow way. Thank you.
A word received: I AM your rest and your peace.
