Father, fulfill Your desire in us.
1 John 2:17
The world and everything that people want in it are passing away, but the person who does what God wants lives forever.
Father, teach us to wait & respond to You rather than try & control the outcome.
Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.
God Almighty, help us to fulfil that which You have placed in our hearts.

Surrender, Idols, God’s will, Love, Holy Spirit
Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Consequences, God’s will, Peace, Obedience
“Ask, and it will be given to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find. The door will be opened to the one who knocks.
If you cry out to the Lord in earnest He will answer. The question is, are you desperate enough?
