Turn to the Lord in your need, and you will live.

"But I pray to you, Lord,
 in the time of your favor;
in your great love, O God,
answer me with your sure salvation.
Answer me, Lord, out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me."   (Psalm 69: 13, 16 NIV

"The humble shall see their God at work for them. No wonder they will be so glad! All who seek for God shall live in joy.  For Jehovah hears the cries of his needy ones and does not look the other way."  (Psalm 69:  32-33 TLB)

Wait for the Lord with courage.  Do not despair.

Lord Jesus, send me.

"Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”  (Isaiah 6: 9 NIV)

I will bear witness to You in the world O Jesus.  I will spread the knowledge of Your name among my brothers and sisters.

Do you know the Holy Spirit as the Voice that speaks in court?

"When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time.    For it is not you who will be speaking — it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."  (Matthew 10: 19-20 NLT)

The Holy Spirit is the Helper who is always present to aid us.  Be aware of this.  He is the Voice that speaks in court.

"Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me."  (Psalm 51: 11)

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the person who seeks refuge in Him.

"Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."  (Matthew 11: 28 NLT)

Come to Jesus in prayer.  He is waiting for you.  Come to Him in His word.  He is the word. He is in the word.  Come to Him in the Eucharist, which is the source, center and summit of our life.  Come to Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  His inexhaustible Mercy is waiting to embrace you.  Murmur His sweet and powerful Name always. It is terror to demons.

Proclaim God’s wondrous deeds and glory in His holy Name.

"Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness."   (Matthew 10: 1 NLT)

Lord we believe.  Increase our faith that in Your Name, even in 2016 we can still drive out demons and cure every disease and illness.

They make kings and princes without consulting Me.

"The people have appointed kings without my consent, and princes without my approval.
By making idols for themselves from their silver and gold, they have brought about their own destruction." (Hosea 8: 4 NLT)

In the year of election, Hosea is warning the nation about electing president without consulting the Lord.  Hitler was elected.

Daughter, your faith has saved you.

"Jesus turned and saw her.   “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.”   And the woman was healed at that moment."  (Matthew 9: 22 NIV)

A woman suffering from hemorrhages for 12 years mixed courage with faith and got her healing.   Be bold with expectant faith when you ask Jesus for anything.
