LIFe with God: June 7

Posted on June 7, 2012

Scripture

Judges 19

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why does the awful sequence of events in this chapter teach us about a culture that abandons the Lord?

Application

Do I value the “freedom” to sin and do what I want over following God’s instructions?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear God, The culture of America today is far too similar to the culture in this passage. Help me to hold fast to Your word, Your will, and Your ways! 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:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Joe & Sheala Lehosit
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael Morgan

Ministries:

  • Provenance
  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. – Matthew 6:33 (HCSB)
