Observation

What does being justified by Christ through faith do for us (1-2, 21)? What has God done for us (5-8)?

Application

Do I live and function as one justified, reconciled, and at peace with God? Do I rejoice in this?

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank You and praise you that because of Jesus Christ I have been declared righteous and have peace with You, having obtained access by faith into Your grace by which I stand! Thank You that You sent Jesus to die for me while I was still a helpless sinner, giving me eternal life! Help me to live and function in this grace, and may I never try to turn back to the law. 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.
