16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. 18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. Matthew 10:16-18 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help us in this time of trial.
19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. Matthew 10:19-20 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, I trust you to give us the words to speak.
21 Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:21-22 (NKJV)
Father, please help us endure.
23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. Matthew 10:23 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me leave behind anything that keeps us from following you.
1 Now King Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah. 2 But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land gave heed to the words of the LORD which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah. Jeremiah 37:1-2 (NKJV)
Father, give us rulers who will heed your words.
1 Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide in times of trouble? 2 The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor; Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised. Psalm 10:1-2 (NKJV)
Jesus, we cry out to you in this time of trouble and discord.
3 If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3 (NKJV)
