Begin with a short prayer asking God to speak to you through scripture, music, and prayer today, to prepare you for what he will say to you not only during this time but also what he will say to you through the service at church this weekend.
9 For this reason God highly exalted him
and gave him the name
that is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus
every knee will bow—
in heaven and on earth
and under the earth—
11 and every tongue will confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
Call out to Jesus now. Whatever situation you are facing, He is greater. Lean on Him completely. Tell him everything about it—all the hurt, all the pain, all the anguish, all the hopelessness—expess the deepest parts of your heart to Jesus. He loves you and will give you peace.
