“But why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46)
Holy Spirit, restore to your church a willing obedience to the words of Jesus.
“Whoever comes to me, and hears my sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.” (Luke 6:47-48 )
Jesus, you are our rock; please help us to build only on you. The storm is upon us — help us cling to you.
“But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:49)
Father, so many ears and hear not; eyes and see not; tongues and speak not. They have build for themselves a house with no foundation. Have mercy on them and rescue as many as you can. Thank you.
A word received: Look to me — I AM able to do what you cannot.

Grace known. Grace unknown.
Grace given, Grace received.
Grace seen, Grace unseen.
Grace aware, Grace unaware.
Grace flowing, Grace withheld.
Grace abundant, Grace thinly veiled.
Grace clear and present.
But always there is Grace…
