2020 12 26 St. Stephen's Day

Stuart Townend - Keep you here

34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Matthew 23:34-35 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit,help us confront the fact that we are under judgment, for we have not heeded the words of your prophets.

11 Then they secretly induced men to say, "We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God." 12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes; and they came upon him, seized him, and brought him to the council. 13 They also set up false witnesses who said, "This man does not cease to speak blasphemous words against this holy place and the law; Acts 6:11-13 (NKJV)
     Father, we are in a time when your faithful witnesses are being accused of being false witnesses; have mercy on us.

1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came from the LORD, saying, 2 "Thus says the LORD: 'Stand in the court of the LORD'S house, and speak to all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD'S house, all the words that I command you to speak to them. Do not diminish a word. Jeremiah 26:1-2 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, do not let us diminish a single one of your words.

3 Perhaps everyone will listen and turn from his evil way, that I may relent concerning the calamity which I purpose to bring on them because of the evil of their doings.' 4 And you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD: "If you will not listen to Me, to walk in My law which I have set before you, 5 to heed the words of My servants the prophets whom I sent to you, both rising up early and sending them (but you have not heeded), 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth." ' " Jeremiah 26:3-6 (NKJV)
     LORD, if we do not heed your word and your witnesses, we face a terrible judgment and destruction.

1 In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness. 2 Bow down Your ear to me, Deliver me speedily; Be my rock of refuge, A fortress of defense to save me. Psalm 31:1-2 (NKJV)
     Holy LORD, help us make the choice to put our trust in you. Do not let us be ashamed of our trust in you.
