Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, again he designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” For if Joshua had given them rest, then he would not afterward have spoken of another day. (Hebrews 4:6-8 )
Holy Spirit, help hear the words of your prophets and chosen leaders. Soften our hearts so that we may be ready for that day of rest you have prepared for us..
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. (Hebrews 4:9)
Father, I long for that day of rest for your people.
For he who has entered his rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from his. (Hebrews 4:10)
Jesus, please help us lay every burden at your feet and rest in your arms of love.
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. (Hebrews 4:11)
LORD, help us this day and every day make every effort to enter into your rest. Thank you.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
Father, pierce our hearts with you word as it was said of the crowds gather on the Day of Pentecost, “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do?'” (Acts 2:37)
Thank you for the power and anointing you have given our Bishop Bill Love, Bishop David Ball, and Bishop Dan Herzog of the Diocese of Albany, Bishop Harold Miller of the Diocese of Down and Dromore, Bishop Dave Bena of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America, and Bishop Mike Chapman of the Diocese of Peru, and Bishop Mark Lawrence of the Diocese of South Carolina. Bless these dioceses. Thank you for those Aarons and Hurs who hold up their hands in prayer and encourage them. (See Exodus 17:8-13)

Brethren, keep your eye on “The Word” of God. Read the bible daily. “The Word” is a medication to your soul. “The Word” is a balm of healing grace poured over the wounds of life. Just say “The Word” Lord… Proverbs 4:20-22 writes; My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.
