God of God, Light of Light, (Nicene Creed)
Jesus, you are God and you are the light to take us through this time of darkness in the church and in the nation. You are the word of God and are a lamp to our feet.
12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' " Matthew 21:12-13 (NKJV)
Jesus, cleanse the temple of my heart and fill it with prayer.
12 For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth. 13 Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you, 14 knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me. 2 Peter 1:12-14 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us remind each other of God's love and mercy so that at the end of our lives we come into you kingdom.
15 Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease [exodus]. 2 Peter 1:15 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for the new exodus you are accomplishing for us and in us.
1 Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying: 2 "You only have I known of all the families of the earth; Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities." Amos 3:1-2 (NKJV)
Father, we have been unfaithful; thank you for this discipline you are bringing on us - it is a sign of your love for us.
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation. 2 Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. 3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. Psalm 5:1-3 (NKJV)
LORD, help me come to you morning by morning to be renewed in heart and mind and spirit. Thank you.
A Word Received: Tune out the distractions of the world and let my melodies fill your heart.
