Lamps and oil

BEHOLD, the Bridegroom cometh: go ye out
With lighted lamps and garlands round about
To meet Him in a rapture with a shout.
–Christina Rosetti

Exodus 27:20 (NKJV) The Care of the Lampstand
“And you shall command the children of Israel that they bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually.

Matthew 25:4 (ESV) The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins
But the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.

Our Father in heaven,
We pray for the renewing fire of Your Holy Spirit in the Mississippi Delta. Amen.
