LIFe with God: February 22

Posted on February 22, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 18

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Sarah do when she heard God’s promise? What did she do when God called her on it? What would it have taken for God to spare Sodom?

Application

Do I believe God or do I scoff at His promises? Do I try to deny my actions to the One who sees all things? Am I living righteously enough that God would spare my city if he found nine others like me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I must confess that I sometimes react like Sarah when the situation seems impossible. Please give me a heart that believes You no matter what the circumstances. May I be a beacon of the righteousness of Christ in this dark world. I pray that I would live in such a matter that would preserve my city! 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 & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Pray for Star and Eagle

  • 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:
But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. – John 4:23-24 (HCSB)
