May 8


It pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief.

Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” § “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. § Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. § For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. § Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?

The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him. § My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. § My Elect One in whom My soul delights!

You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent.

[You] have made us kings and priests to our God. § The sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and these shall be to you as an ordinance forever throughout your generations. When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the Lord your God, and you will be saved from your enemies.
I did not say to the seed of Jacob, “Seek Me in vain.” § Their voice was heard; and their prayer came up to His holy dwelling place, to heaven. § The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. § Pray for one another. . . . The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Come, Lord Jesus! § Do not delay, O my God. § Looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God.
