“Krazo” - Greek word means screaming as with anguish. Cries of a woman in childbirth.
Question: Do you need to try a little harder, cry a little louder, raise your intensity level?
3rd - “Lord, Son of David”
Question: Who are you crying out to?
4th - “Be Quiet”...the crowd yelled. Shhhh….
Question: Do you really need to take care of others and tell them what to do, or should you just take care of yourself first?
5th - “But they only shouted louder.” “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
Question: When the pessimist, doubters, whiners and complainers say something negative to you, how are you going to respond?

Question: Who are you crying out to, and are you asking for what you really need?
