The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. Isaiah 1:1 (NKJV)
Father, please give me a vision of your work among us.
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth! For the LORD has spoken: " I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me; the ox knows its owner and the donkey its master's crib; but Israel does not know, My people do not consider." Isaiah 1:2-3 (NKJV)
Father, so many of your children have forgotten you; have mercy on us.

LORD, I life up my soul to you.
Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5 (NKJV)
LORD, show me your ways and teach me; lead me onto your paths of truth and salvation.
A word received: Look to me for hope that does not disappoint.
