LIFe with God: January 24

Posted on January 24, 2012

Scripture

Luke 19:29-48

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why didn’t Jesus rebuke His disciples? Why did he weep?

Application

Do I actively participate in praising Jesus, or do I stand idly by and wait for “the stones” to do it? Do I pray for Israelis to recognize Jesus as their Messiah?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I cry out in agreement with the disciples: Blessed is King Jesus who comes in the name of the LORD! It is only because of Him that man can have peace with You. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heaven! I ask for peace in Jerusalem and all of Israel, and that Israelis worldwide would have their spiritual eyes opened and recognize that the Jesus who visited Israel over 2000 years ago is Messiah God, and that they would turn to Him! I ask this in His 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:

  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Joshua, Jonathan, Sophia)
  • Gil & Lois Estes
  • Gary Friend
  • Scott & Kristi Guinn (Josiah)

Missionaries:

  • J & G Simon, missionaries to Austria

CLF:

  • Ask that we would be a church that is devoted to true fellowship: Pray that we would be encouraged from being united with Christ, comforted by His love, bonded with His Spirit, tender and compassionate with one another. Pray that we would be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Ask that we would do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider one another better than ourselves, looking not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of each other. Pray that we would all have the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.

Community: Rural towns in Treasure Valley – Emmett, Greenleaf, Homedale, Marsing, Middleton, New Plymouth, Parma, Payette, Wilder, Weiser, etc…

  • 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:
In fact, all those who want to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. – 2 Timothy 3:12 (HCSB)
