Jesus, there is water all around us, but where are the people to be baptized?
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for giving me belief in you and everlasting life.
Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11 (NKJV)
Father, please help me strive to enter your rest.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)
Father, let your word preserve my heart and soul.
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, I come boldly to your throne of grace for help and mercy in my time of need.
"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good? Deuteronomy 10:12-13 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me do all that our Father requires of me.
Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. Deuteronomy 10:16 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, circumcise my heart so that I will be willful no more.
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing. Deuteronomy 10:17-18 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help us love the aliens among us.
"He trusted in the LORD, let Him rescue Him; let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!" Psalm 22:8 (NKJV)
Father, I trust in you to deliver me.
Save Me from the lion's mouth and from the horns of the wild oxen! You have answered Me. Psalm 22:21 (NKJV)
LORD, save my life! I trust you to answer me.
A word received: Look to me for glory and honor.
