33 Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. Mark 15:33 (NKJV)
Lord, help your people who have walked in darkness to see your great light.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which is translated, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" Mark 15:34 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us know you are near and share the Father's love for us when our course is finished.
13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." James 4:13-15 (NKJV)
Father, help us know that we only live and breath by your mercy.
1 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. James 5:1-4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, bring the wealthy in this land to repentance.
1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:1-2 (NKJV)
Father, I long to enter your presence.
