Scripture

Judges 14

Observation

How was Samson able to kill the lion barehanded so easily? What happened with his new wife?

Application

Do I cooperate with God to do His will, or does He have to use me in spite of myself?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You that You used Samson to accomplish Your purpose. How much better things would have gone for him if he had worked with you obediently and steadfastly! Help me to follow You and be sensitive to your leading, avoiding the pitfalls that Samson fell into. 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)
