Psalm 55:1-23. What is there in my life from which I'd like to just fly away, flee and hide (verses 6-8)? Instead of escaping, how can I more prayerfully give that need to God?
Isaiah 3:1-26. Am I complicit, if only by omission, with institutions, behaviors, and attitudes that "grind the faces of the poor" (verse 15, KJV)? What would God have me do differently?
James 1:12-20. How can I be a better listener today, wiser in my words, harder to annoy (verses 19-20)?
Luke 17:1-4. Who is there in my life that I have to keep forgiving over and over (verse 4)? How am I doing with that? What has God had to forgive me for, seven times or worse?
