Jesus, I pray that our witness will be like yours: turning the world upside down (see Acts 17:6) and stirring up the people.
Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. Luke 23:11 (NKJV)
Jesus, the Herods of our day treat you with contempt.
Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. Acts 8:14-17 (NKJV)
Father, I pray for all those who have received Jesus, that they might also receive your Holy Spirit.
And all the people said to Samuel, "Pray for your servants to the LORD your God, that we may not die;" ... Then Samuel said to the people, ... "MOREOVER, AS FOR ME, FAR BE IT FROM ME THAT I SHOULD SIN AGAINST THE LORD IN CEASING TO PRAY FOR YOU;" 1 Samuel 12:19a...20a...23a (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us pray without ceasing for those in need.
Those who trust in the LORD Are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever. Psalm 125:1-2 (NKJV)
LORD, I place my trust in you; keep me steady in you.
A word received: Look to me for guidance; I will show you the way forward.
