Isaiah 11:1 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
or decide disputes by what his ears hear,
4 but with righteousness he shall judge the poor,
and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist,
and faithfulness the belt of his loins.
Messiah Jesus, you are the shoot of Jesse, the son of David, and the branch from which the fruit of salvation shall come. YOU were the righteous man and incarnate God. In YOU is wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and true righteousness. YOU delight to do what is good.
YOU LORD Jesus see to the heart of the matter. No one can deceive you with clever lies or conspiracies. YOU are the defender of the poor, the humble, the meek and the ONE who resist the proud, the entitled, and the oppressor. YOUR WORD will come to correct and judge and the wicked will not stand in the day of YOUR righteous judgment. LORD have mercy on us.
LORD, you are the hope of all the oppressed and needy. YOUR faithfulness gives us reason to have faith. May YOUR kingdom come and YOUR will be done on earth as in heaven.
LAMB of God who takes away the sins of the world, now have mercy on YOUR people and forgive us our transgressions. Send now YOUR Spirit upon us and provide for us wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and a true fear of YOU in all we do, say, and feel. Come upon us now and revive us. Without YOU we can do nothing.
Lord have mercy, Messiah have mercy, Lord have mercy. Amen
