John 9 and Acts 13

September 4, 2014

They said to the blind man again, “What do you say about him because he opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.” But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and received his sight, until they called the parents of him who had received his sight. (John 9:17-18 )
      Jesus, we are so slow to recognize what you are doing among us. Open the eyes of our hearts so that we may see you and recognize your work. Thank you.

As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. (Acts 13:2-3)
      Holy Spirit, please help us discern your call on the lives of the men and women and youths you have set aside for your work.

Libyan airliners

September 4, 2014

From The Blaze: Leading up to the somber anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, there are fresh fears of possible 9/11-style attacks taking place across North Africa as radical Islamist groups in Libya have reportedly seized nearly a dozen commercial airliners in the last month.

Worthy is the Lamb, seated on the throne
High and lifted up.

Then I saw a Lamb that looked as if it had been slaughtered, but it was now standing between the throne and the four living beings and among the twenty-four elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the sevenfold Spirit of God that is sent out into every part of the earth. Revelation 5:6

O Lamb of God, head full-crowned, sovereign over every dimension, the seen and the unseen, over air and land and sea, You are worthy.

The prince of the power of the air is at work in the sons of disobedience, but Your authority is manifold, over light and color, sound and motion, space and time.
On earth, You were carried in the womb and carried in the arms of Your parents.
You walked on land and walked on water.
You rode in boats and on a donkey.
You were lifted on a cross.
You walked through walls and ascended into the clouds.
Your authority over transportation extends to the Libyan airliners. You are worthy. O Lamb of God, dismantle any plans to use these planes for terror. Amen.
