Scripture

Psalm 32

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why is the source of true happiness? What is the reward of trusting the Lord?

Application

Do I rejoice that my sins are forgiven? Do I acknowledge my sin and need for forgiveness before God? Do I trust in Him and bask in His faithful love?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Blessed God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am so happy that You forgave my transgression and covered my sin! Thank You that because of Christ You don’t charge me with my sin! Keep my spirit from deceit, and help me to acknowledge my sin before You instead of trying to conceal it. For You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble and surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance and faithful love. I thank You 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:
But based on His promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness will dwell. – 2 Peter 3:13 (HCSB)
