Scripture

Psalm 67

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does the psalmist ask of God (1)? For what reason (2)?

Application

Do I regularly ask for God’s blessing on His people? Do I ask out of a motive for Him to be glorified and the gospel to be spread?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, When those times come–as they do at some point for everyone–that I am weak and fainthearted, remind me to call to You from the ends of the earth. Lead me to a rock that is high above me, for You have been a refuge for me, a strong tower in the face of the enemy. I will live in Your tent forever and take refuge under the shelter of Your wings. You have given a heritage to those who fear Your name: we will sit before You forever, guarded by Your faithful love and truth. Therefore I will continually sing of Your name! In Jesus’ name I pray, 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.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. – Ephesians 2:19-20 (HCSB)
