Sunday, (Nov 17) – Pray that the Holy Spirit will give us open hearts and minds so that He can move in us during the difficult times of our lives, and make us into the people He wants us to be. Pray that during times of trial and tribulation, we will be more aware of God’s grace and strength in our lives, that our trust and faith in God will increase. Pray that we will fix our eyes on Christ, and follow His example, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2). Pray that we, too, will learn to rejoice in our trials and sufferings, knowing that it produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope in us.
