LIFe with God: September 8

Posted on September 8, 2011

Scripture

Proverbs 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How are we to treat the teaching of God’s Word (verse 2)? To what does Solomon liken giving in to sexual immorality (verse 22-23)?

Application

Do I protect the teaching I’ve received from God’s Word and God’s people like I would protect my own eye? Do I truly understand the seriousness and potential consequences of sexual immorality?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, Give me a high regard for teaching on and from Your Word, and strengthen me to protect what I learn as I would protect my own eye. Plant in my heart and mind the importance of remaining pure sexually, and give me a deep-seated understanding of the seriousness and consequences of wrong decisions in that regard. 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:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael Morgan

Ministries:

  • Provenance
  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for single adults…

  • To embrace Christ as their best friend and lover of their souls
  • To more fully grasp the family heart of God
  • That God will bring them Godly friends to care for and support them
  • That God will give them a peace and drive away lonliness
  • That God will provide them with meaningful work & ministry in which to use their gifts

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. – Ephesians 1:7-8 (HCSB)
