    May the Lord bless you with increase and multiply your effectiveness, bringing those to you who are ready for battle – equipped with the mindset of warriors, not looking for a fight but willing to defend those unable to defend themselves, and prepared for spiritual battle against the enemy of God. 1 Chronicles 7

    May you know, when you suffer the loss of those dear to you, that as you mourn you will be comforted, and when you are ready the Lord will bring you joy again. 1 Chronicles 7

    May you realize, as you read the genealogies of Israel, that even the least in the kingdom of God is treasured and valued, eternally in remembrance, while the great and mighty people of renown in the world will soon be forgotten. 1 Chronicles 8

    May you be reassured that before the events took place which put you in your current circumstances, God had determined your destination and the work you would do both on the journey, and once you arrived. Acts 27

    May you trust God's plan when struggles envelope you and rely on His provision when yours are consumed, for in His promises you will find all you need to continue on in willing obedience to the Spirit's leading. Acts 27

    When the storms blow in suddenly after a gentle start to your voyage, may you continue to rest in the power of the word of God that started the trip, and having done all, to know He remains with you, for when you can sleep in the boat, you can speak to the storm. Acts 27, Mark 4, Matthew 8

    My dear one, weep with Me. In your prayer closet, in your private times before Me, when you are closed in in My Spirit, receive My sorrow and cry out in grief to the Father that His mercy may still be extended to each one who needs it.
    Join Me in intercession in the spiritual realm that the lies of the adversary will be shown for what they are by the darkness-dispelling light of My testimony that is shed abroad by My people walking in My unity with each other and extending My compassion toward those who misuse them.
    Lament with Me for My people, called by My name, to have a heart to humble themselves and pray to the Father, seeking His face and turning from the wickedness that has crept into their ways separating their lands from the healing and forgiving blessings the Father desires to pour out.
    Mourn with Me over the multitudes milling around in the valley of decision, having heard so much about Me yet not finding enough evidence to make a choice. Should not My people bear irrefutable proof of the authority in My Word and the power of My Spirit as I watch over My Word that is in their mouth to confirm it with signs following? Instead, the cares of this world and the lies and insinuations of the enemy of your soul carry more weight in the hearts of My people than My promises and My covenant.
    Let your heart be broken, as Mine is, for the opportunities which are still abounding in these last short moments of grace, that are being passed by and ignored with no understanding of how near the end has come – opportunities to receive Me as Savior, to know Me as Healer, to obey Me as Master, to shelter in Me as Protector, to be at peace in Me as Provider, to be fruitful in Me as the True Vine, to be cherished by Me as the Bridegroom.
    Know, My willing one, that as you have labored in travail and anguished in spirit even so you will exult with Me over one that is found, and you will share in the jubilation as My Body comes together in unity and rejoicing. This is the sorrow which, shared with Me, works to complete and fulfill the suffering and affliction of the Body of Christ until I come to gather you home for the wedding feast of the Lamb. Labor with Me, sowing in tears, so that you may reap the harvest with Me in joy and know My fellowship in your life here, and in eternity, soon to come.

    May you take refuge in the Lord your God, Who will save and deliver you from all who pursue you, all those who would seek to tear you like a lion and rip you to pieces, if He did not rescue you. Psalm 7

    May your hands be innocent of guilt, and your heart free from blame, as you stand before the Lord your God, having neither done evil to those who are at peace with you, or robbed a foe without cause, lest the Lord remove His protection from you and give you over to your enemies. Psalm 7

    May the Lord arise in His anger against the rage of your enemies, and awake for your sake the judgment He has commanded. Psalm 7

    May the Lord, Who searches the heart and the mind, judge you by His Son's righteousness and in His Son's integrity, that He will bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make His chosen people secure. Psalm 7

    May your shield be the Most High God Who saves the upright in heart, for He is a righteous judge, not relenting, but expressing His wrath daily, sharpening His sword and bending His bow, causing the trouble which an evildoer prepares to recoil on himself, and making his own violence come down on his head. Psalm 7

    May you give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness and sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. Psalm 7
