This nation's wealth has blinded it to its spiritual poverty. Jesus, bring us to new life in the gospel.
25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:25-26 (NKJV)
Jesus, we look to you to do what we cannot do. We ask you to do "open-heart surgery" on us to heal our spirits.

2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. James 1:2-3 (NKJV)
Father, thank you for the present time of testing of our faith. I pray that it will produce in me the fruit of your Spirit.

Jesus, have your way with me and give me wisdom to endure.

Psalm 19:7-11 (NKJV)
LORD, help me keep to your ways, whatever the cost.

Jesus, keep me from presumptuous sin.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me speak your word.
