Observation

Spend some time contemplating the importance of the resurrection of Jesus.

Application

Do I live as if I truly believe Jesus rose in resurrection power, and that He will raise me by that same power?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I praise You for raising Jesus from the dead! I thank You that His resurrection is not a myth or simply a spiritual concept, but that He literally and physically came back to life from death! And I thank You and praise You that because I have accepted His sacrifice as payment for my sin, that I, too, will be raised to new life in Christ! Help me to keep that in the forefront of my mind, and help me to view every situation in my life through that perspective. I ask this in Jesus’ Name, 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:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew)
  • Brian & Eileen Davis

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for young children in our community

  • For Godly influences
  • For safety and protection from accidents, abuse, and predators
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For a heart to learn and to know God from a young age
  • That they will not be prodigals, but remain true to God all the days of their lives

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first fruits of all your crops – Proverbs 3:9
