Scripture

Psalm 81

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How is the mood of this psalm by Asaph different from the several that precede it? What does he call the people to do (1-3)?

Application

Do I sing for joy to God, shout aloud to Him, and celebrate Him?

Prayer

Dear Father, You alone are my strength and I sing for joy to You! I shout aloud to You, god of Jacob! I praise You with music and with my voice and my emotions, for You are my Great Deliverer and everlasting all-powerful God! Thank You for Your many, many blessings. 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)

  • 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 the salvation of the lost

  • Readiness to repent
  • Hearts prepared to hear God’s voice
  • Deep dissatisfaction and unrest with life without Him
  • Godly influences

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
No one undergoing a trial should say, “I am being tempted by God.” For God is not tempted by evil, and He Himself doesn’t tempt anyone. But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death. – James 1:13-15 (HCSB)
