Posted on March 16, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 38

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What string of sinful decisions happen in this chapter? How does Judah reveal his hypocrisy (24)? How does he respond when he realizes it (26)?

Application

Do I get angry with others for the very things that I do? Do I remember that God has forgiven me and calls me to forgive others?

Prayer

Dear Father, keep me from a heart that judges others for the very sins I have committed. Help me to forgive others as You have forgiven me. Keep me from making sinful decisions, and especially from those that could cause a chain reaction in my family. Keep me on the path to which You’ve called me, Lord. 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for Mountain Home…

  • 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
  • For the air base: safety for military and their families (especially those who are deployed), sound military strategies by commanders, impact for Christ in areas where deployed

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead – 1 Peter 1:3 (HCSB)
