Lord, there are so many sources of trouble for youth in our society that are freely available: drugs, alcohol, pornography, sexualized advertising. Have mercy on us and turn this nation around.
A word received (11/18/06) Pray for the day of my threshing. Pray that none of the wheat will be lost with the chaff. Pray for my little ones who are being led astray by lies. Pray for my will to be done.
Please burn away all the chaff in our lives and help us bear fruit worthy of repentance.
"But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched Mark 9:42-43 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us recognize in our own lives those things which drag us down and repent of them.
Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 2 Timothy 1:6 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help stir up the gifts you have given us.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me recognize my fears for what they are and repent of them.
For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. 2 Timothy 1:12 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me know you more where you have blessed us.
"Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Isaiah 58:6-7 (NKJV)
Father, help us fast according to your will.
Those from among you shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. Isaiah 58:12 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me be a repairer of the breach between you and your people, and a restorer of streets to dwell in.
As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. Psalm 42:1 (NKJV)
Father, help me come into your presence.
A word received: Hope in me. Give me your burdens.
