Holy Spirit, help me keep on praying and not lose heart.
Then the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:6-8 (NKJV)
Lord, vengeance and justice are in your hands. I want your will to be done, not mine.
Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality. For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, 2 Corinthians 8:1-3 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me find this same freedom of spirit.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for the riches I have found in you.
You shall appoint judges and officers in all your gates, which the LORD your God gives you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with just judgment. You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. You shall follow what is altogether just, that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 16:18-20 (NKJV)
Father, I pray for your justice and mercy in this land.
Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. Deuteronomy 17:18 (NKJV)
LORD, raise up rulers in this land who will dig into your word daily.
Oh, that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn My hand against their adversaries. Psalm 81:13-14 (NKJV)
LORD, help us listen to you, you are the true defense of this nation.
A word received: Turn to me where true joys are to be found.
