Holy Spirit, please help me respond to every call to be an intercessor for others.
Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, "Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof. Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it." Luke 7:6-8 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me come to Jesus in humility of spirit.
Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd. And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother. Luke 7:11-15 (NKJV)
Jesus, have compassion on parents who lose their children.
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:1-2 (NKJV)
Father, help me seek Jesus.
But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, Colossians 3:8-10 (NKJV)
So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged." Isaiah 6:5-7 (NKJV)
Thus says the LORD: "Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy. There is hope in your future, says the LORD, that your children shall come back to their own border. Jeremiah 31:16-17 (NKJV)
LORD, help me live in hope.
Why should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity at my heels surrounds me? Those who trust in their wealth and boast in the multitude of their riches, none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him-- for the redemption of their souls is costly, and it shall cease forever-- that he should continue to live eternally, and not see the Pit. Psalm 49:5-9 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, teach the wealthy of this land this wisdom and turn their hearts to Jesus.
But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, for He shall receive me. Psalm 49:15 (NKJV)
Jesus, I await your redemption of my soul from death.
A word received: You are in my care; look to me for help in the storm.

PRAYER TABLE REPORT -- St. Ann's of Amsterdam, (Monday, May 8, 10-11 a.m. James Bryant and Deacon Alan presiding at His table.)
SCENES -- We've had colder and windier days for the table, of course. But it was in the low 40s and when some early arrivals started coming, some of them actually requested if we could do the table INDOORS today. We noticed that most of them were not dressed for cold weather, so we agreed to have the table inside in the Parish Hall. Two of the early birds, a mother (LINDA) and daughter (SALEEN) came inside and Cherie Nethaway and I invited them to join us in Morning Prayer. They accepted the invitation! They listened intently and said the Lord's Prayer with us! ... Many thanks to the contributions of non-perishable food and used, clean clothing we received this week. That makes it easier for us to feed and clothe the grateful people who come. .. About 25-30 people in all visited us this time.
PRAYER CONCERNS -- Please pray for BIANCA, who has private issues. The Lord knows the details. She took two of our wooden crosses made by Dennis Adams of North Carolina. ... MARIA asked for prayer and anointing. He daughter KABESHA is battling a serious illness.
