LIFe with God: July 18

Posted on July 18, 2011

Scripture

Psalms 2-4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does Psalm 2 tell us about Christ? How did David respond to extreme danger and stress in Psalm 3? To what does he attribute his ability to sleep peacefully in Psalm 4?

Application

Am I rebelling against God in any area of my life right now? Do I take refuge in Christ? Do I trust in God to keep me safe and sustain me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I thank You that Jesus is Your Son, the One You have anointed to rule over all the earth from Zion. I thank You that because I have taken refuge in him, I am happy. You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts up my head. I lie down and sleep; I wake again because You sustain me. Salvation belongs to the LORD; may Your blessing be on Your people. You answer me when I call, God, who vindicates me. You freed me from affliction; You are gracious to me and hear my prayer. I praise You and thank You that You have set apart the faithful for Yourself. You hear when I call to You. help me to be angry and not sin; on my bed, may I reflect in my heart and be still before You. May I offer the sacrifices of praise and a life devoted to You in the righteousness of Christ. I trust in You, Lord. You have put more joy in my heart than the wealthy have when their grain and new wine abound. I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, LORD, make me live in safety. I pray 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 Kuna…

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. – Matthew 24:42 (NIV)
