Observation

How did Stephen make his case? What was the result?

Application

Do I make sure that my defense is biblical? Am I willing to stand by God’s truth no matter what?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You for the example of Your servant Stephen. Thank You that he would not be swayed from the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And thank You for receiving Him into glory. May I follow his example of not being ashamed of the gospel and of being faithful even to death. 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)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • 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 Kuna…
