Help me cling to your eternal word, Jesus.
Then early in the morning all the people came to Him in the temple to hear Him. Luke 21:38 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us come to Jesus as these people did.
Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. 1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 (NKJV)
Jesus, bring our lives into your order.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 (NKJV)
Father, let our rejoicing loose your Holy Spirit among us with rejoicing.
Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, teach your people how to test prophecy -- give us discernment of your word.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 (NKJV)
LORD, turn this nation around. Help us choose what is right in your sight and leave behind what is evil.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:21 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, give fear of God and wisdom to the leaders of this nation. Set them free from party spirit.
Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom will ascend like dust; because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Therefore the anger of the LORD is aroused against His people; He has stretched out His hand against them and stricken them, and the hills trembled. their carcasses were as refuse in the midst of the streets. for all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still. Isaiah 5:24-25 (NKJV)
Jesus, plese help us know that judgment is coming.
The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:11-12 (NKJV)
Father, help us take our stand on your counsel.
Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, Just as we hope in You. Psalm 33:22 (NKJV)
O LORD, you are my hope and my mercy.
A word received: Look to me for light for your path. Look to me with hope and expectation.
