Scripture

Acts 19

Observation

What mistake did the seven sons of Sceva make (13-14)? What was the result?

Application

Do I walk in the Spirit and live for Jesus, or do I just give Him lip service? Do I fear God and magnify the name of the Lord Jesus?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, May I never be just a “spiritual name-dropper,” being self-centered under the guise of spirituality. Rather, strengthen me to consistently walk in Your Spirit, living in the fear of god and magnifying the name of the Lord Jesus. 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:

  • 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 outreaches & service projects

  • Creative strategies
  • Volunteers
  • Anointing of the Holy Spirit
