Jeremiah 35:5-16 Lord Almighty, God of Israel, we are told in 1 Samuel 15:22 that “To obey is better than sacrifice” Help us to obey You as completely as Recabites obeyed their ancestor. Teach us lessons in obedience daily, Lord. We pray for those who are oppressed by the spirit of rebellion which is as witchcraft to be loosed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Jeremiah 35:17 Lord, this is a repetition of verse 15, showing two things that Judah would not do to avert judgment. They would not hear or obey.

Jeremiah 35:18 Lord the secret of blessing is in this verse, because of obedience You promised the Rechabites an eternal house.
Jeremiah 36:3 Meditate on the many chances God gives you to repent and turn to Him. Thank Him for his abundant, patient mercy.
Jeremiah 36:7 Merciful God, let our thoughts, words, and deeds invite Your pleasure and not Your anger.
Jeremiah 36:15 Father, would You grant this to the officials of our nation that they would say “sit down and read the Word to us”. We so easily become complacent and uninterested in what Your Word has to teach us. Forgive us, and stir our heart with a burning desire to read and hear Your Word.
Jeremiah 36:26 Lord, I pray this for the body of Christ. That You will hide us, protect us, from those who would prevent us from doing Your will.
Jeremiah 36:32 Lord, what an example Jeremiah is to me! Without complaint he rewrote everything the king had burned. Make me as diligent to preserve Your message and pass it on to others.
Proverbs 31:11 Heavenly Father, grant us opportunities to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. May we be instruments of justice in an unjust world.
Proverbs 31:28 Lord God, may our life at home bring You glory. Help us to be a person of such love and integrity that those who know us best will regard us most highly because of Your standard in our lives.
James 5:10-11 Lord, I thank You for those who have modeled for me perseverance in their faith and patience in suffering. I praise You for Your tenderness and mercy in showing me time and again how Your plans are for my ultimate good.
James 5:13 If you are going through suffering, offer it to God in sacrificial prayer of faith. Or offer your joy as a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.
James 5:16-18 Father in heaven, how inspiring it is to know that You hear our prayers and that You are answering even before we speak. I bring before for you the children of the world Lord, in every nation we are seeing our children are being killed, even be shot through the head at fourteen years old for saying what is right. Help Lord!
