Jesus, please give us eyes to see the signs you are going among us today.
This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him." Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:2-3 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, bring me to new birth day by day.
Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" John 3:4 (NKJV)
Father, we so often look for human explanations rather than to your Holy Spirit.
The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?" John 3:8-10 (NKJV)
Jesus, help the teachers in your church understand these things.
"that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:15 (NKJV)
Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.
Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews 3:12-13 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us exhort one another to go on in our new life in Christ.
And I looked, and behold, you had sinned against the LORD your God--had made for yourselves a molded calf! You had turned aside quickly from the way which the LORD had commanded you. Deuteronomy 9:16 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us recognize and repent of the idols we have made in our lives.
For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure with which the LORD was angry with you, to destroy you. But the LORD listened to me at that time also. Deuteronomy 9:19 (NKJV)
Father, thank you for the intercessors today who keep us from destruction.
Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before my face. Psalm 5:8 (NKJV)
LORD, lead me on your straight path.
A word received: My people have wandered far from me; pray they will return.
