Mark and Ephesians

But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” (Mark 4:20)
      Jesus, please help us bear fruit for you.

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. (Ephesians 5:1)
      Lord, help us to be imitators of you.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (Ephesians 5:8 )
      Holy Spirit, I want to walk as a child of the light.

Also he said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” Then he said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.” (Mark 4:21-24)
      Holy Spirit, help us shine forth with the light of the gospel.

And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, (Ephesians 5:18-19)
      Father, thank you for all that you are doing for us and through us in the name of your son Jesus, Help us submit ourselves to one another out of reverence for you. Thank you.

giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God. (Ephesians 5:20-21)
      
WORD: Desire my strength within you.
WORD: I have carried you all these years. Keep looking to me for comfort and safety.
