Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear God, Thank You that You are the holy and righteous judge, and that in Your time You will exercise judgment on the world. Thank You, Lord, for knowing before the foundation of the world what Your plan was, and for carrying it out to perfection at just the right time. Thank You that whoever will come to Jesus will be saved, washed white as snow, and will spend eternity in Your presence, praising and serving You, and that I am one of those people because of Jesus. Thank You for being my Shelter, my Provider, my Refreshment, my Shepherd, my Comfort. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • David Reynolds
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for the elderly…

  • That they will be treated respectfully
  • That they will not dwell on mistakes and regret
  • That God will provide for their health and finances
  • That God will protect them from those who would try to harm them
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • Any broken family relationships restored before they pass on

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Pray for me also, that I may be given the message when I begin to speak — that I may confidently make known the mystery of the gospel – Ephesians 6:19 (NET)
