Scripture

Habakkuk 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What request does Habakkuk make of God at the beginning of this chapter? What declaration does he make at the end of it?

Application

Am I in awe of God’s work? Do I ask Him to revive it in this time, and to remember mercy? Is He my sole source of strength in Whom I triumph and rejoice, no matter the circumstances?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
LORD, I have heard the report about You; LORD, I stand in awe of Your deeds. Revive Your work and make it known in these years. In Your wrath remember mercy! Your splendor covers the heavens, and the earth is full of Your praise. Though everything else fails and I lose all earthly treasure and possessions, yet I will triumph in You, LORD; I will rejoice in You, God of my salvation! Yahweh, You are my Lord and my strength; You make my feet like those of a deer and enable me to walk on mountain heights! I praise 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:

  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • 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: Pray for area pastors and their families:

  • Encouragement
  • Faithfulness in the Lord’s work
  • Finances
  • Marriage/family relationships
  • Work/life balance
  • Deep friendships and support from other Christian leaders

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Therefore, we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:5-6 (HCSB)
