14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him." Matthew 17:14-16 (NKJV)
Jesus, we ask you to do among us what we are unable to do ourselves. Bring healing to your people.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me." 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Matthew 17:17-18 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help us to be a generation that you have renewed and built up in faith.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" 20 So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." Matthew 17:19-21 (NKJV)
Father, restore us to a life of fasting and prayer.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4 (NKJV)
LORD, we long for this day of comfort when there will be no more pain and former things have passed away.
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful." Revelation 21:5 (NKJV)
Jesus, make us new - renew your church.
6 And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. Revelation 21:6 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, let your fountains of living water flow through the church and our lives.
12 Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O LORD, And teach out of Your law, Psalm 94:12 (NKJV)
LORD, bless us with you instruction and teach us your ways.
