Now when they drew near Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples; and He said to them, "Go into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has sat. Loose it and bring it. And if anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' say, 'The Lord has need of it,' and immediately he will send it here." Mark 11:1-3 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us do the ministry Jesus gives us, even when we don't understand its purpose at the time.
Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" Mark 11:9-10 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help us express our Hosannas.
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. 1 Timothy 1:3-4 (NKJV)
Lord, your church is filled with both liberal and conservative ideology rather than the gospel. Lord, let the preaching we hear be for our godly edification so that we are built up in faith.
And gave their land as a heritage, a heritage to Israel His people. Psalm 135:12 (NKJV)
Father, please help us enter in the heritage you have prepared for us.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear; nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them. Psalm 135:15-18 (NKJV)
Jesus, set us free from the idolatries of money and success.
A word received: You don't need to be afraid. Give your fears to me.
