Holy Spirit, please help us recognize Jesus for who he is.
He will not quarrel nor cry out, nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets. Matthew 12:19 (NKJV)
Father, please help us follow Jesus and leave behind quarreling and crying out.
A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory; Matthew 12:20 (NKJV)

And in His name Gentiles will trust." Matthew 12:21 (NKJV)
Holy Father, help us place our trust in Jesus' name.

Holy Spirit, help me walk in truth.
Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God. 3 John 1:11 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help us imitate you.
Demetrius has a good testimony from all, and from the truth itself. And we also bear witness, and you know that our testimony is true. 3 John 1:12 (NKJV)

He sends the springs into the valleys, they flow among the hills. Psalm 104:10 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, bring us to your springs of living water.
Man goes out to his work and to his labor until the evening. Psalm 104:23 (NKJV)
Father, help me go forth to the work you have for me.
These all wait for You, that You may give them their food in due season. Psalm 104:27 (NKJV)
Jesus, I wait on your due season.
A Word Received: I Am the blessing your heart seeks. Seek me day by day.
