LIFe with God: July 20

Posted on July 20, 2012

Scripture

Nehemiah 6

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What were Sanballat and his cohorts planning for Nehemiah? What did he do? What did he discern about the “help” offered by Shemaiah?

Application

Do I stay focused on the work God has given me, or am I distracted by plotters and schemers? Do I trust God to protect me and use wisdom to discern the intentions of suggestions from the insincere?

Prayer

Dear Father, Strengthen me to have the endurance, focus, fortitude, and wisdom of Nehemiah! 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)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for Caldwell

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you – Matthew 5:44 (HCSB)
