Holy Spirit, please help us have Jesus' compassion on those who have nothing to eat.
So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude. They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them. Mark 8:6-7 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, bless and multiply our loaves and fishes so that we may feed the hungry.
Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us accept those who tell us the truth.
Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you. Shake yourself from the dust, arise; sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion! Isaiah 52:1-2 (NKJV)
Father, help us put on the beauty of holiness by confessing our sins to one another.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!" Isaiah 52:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us bring good news to others.
The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men. Psalm 12:8 (NKJV)
LORD, arise! and give shelter to those refugees who come seeking help. Help us remember the Joseph, Mary and Jesus were refugees in Egypt. Father, we live in a time when vileness is exalted; have mercy on us.
A word received: I have cleansed your heart; keep it pure and holy.
