But when His own people heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, "He is out of His mind." Mark 3:21 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, even today your own people disagree with you.
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, Ephesians 4:17-20 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help us learn Christ so that we walk with understanding in his way.
"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Ephesians 4:26-27 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, cleanse us of anger each night before we go to bed so that Satan has no hold on us.
Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until He has mercy on us. Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us! For we are exceedingly filled with contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled With the scorn of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud. Psalm 123:1-4 (NKJV)
LORD, we look to you to have mercy on this diocese.
A Word Received: Look to me; I will deliver you. I delivered Daniel and I can deliver you from harm.
