I had to wake up early yesterday morning for some work to be done in my house. Whilst I was praying, these verses arrived:
The Spirit, too, comes to help us in our weakness. For we don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit expresses our plea with groanings too deep for words. And God, who knows everything in our hearts, knows perfectly well what the Spirit is saying, because her intercessions for God’s holy people are made according to the mind of God.
(Romans 8:26-7; TIB).
Filling my soul,
You pray within me –
Lord, I’m your willing slave.
Pleading on my behalf
For others –
Lord, please forgive and save.
Making me weep,
With sighs and groaning –
Lord, please touch every mind,
Ending our hatred, wars
And bloodshed –
Heal us, for we are blind.
In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.
(Psalm 36:2; NLT).
You will open the eyes of the blind.
(Isaiah 42:7; NLT).
🔻 I am the Lord’s slave (Luke 1:38; HCSB).
🔻 We all have sinned against you (Jeremiah 14:20; NLT).
🔻 Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good. They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their actions are never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil (Psalm 36:1-4; NLT).
🔻 He touched their eyes and said, “Because of your faith, it will happen.” Then their eyes were opened, and they could see! (Matthew 9:29-30; NLT).
🔻 Jesus told him, “I entered this world to render judgment – to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see that they are blind” ( John 9:39; NLT).
