YOU CAN PRAY WITH US…
- Worship the LORD our Redeemer! Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit that He is a Husband to His people and that He is trustworthy to meet our needs and never abandon us.
- Facing times of need, how have you responded either by hiding or living in despair? Confess your unbelief to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and secure you by His undying covenant love.
- Give thanks to Jesus for the beauty of His heart to do whatever was necessary to cover us as His bride. Thank Him for His courage to seek us when we were outsiders, to be with us and offer what others wouldn’t.
- Who do you know that is crushed by their sense of need? Pray for them, asking the Lord to make Himself known to them, and also, where possible to use you to help meet needs that you can address.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to grow in you a heart of compassion for the weak and vulnerable. Pray for insight into how Jesus, as your Redeemer, has covered you in order to fuel you to joyfully seek to cover others.
