Scripture

Psalm 109

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

About what does the psalmist complain to God and what appeal does he make?

Application

Do I go to God when people are spiteful and malicious and trust Him to handle it in His own way and in His own time?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, When people persecute me for no reason or because I follow you, help me, LORD my God; save me according to Your faithful love so they may know that this is Your hand and that You, LORD, have done it. Though they curse, You will bless. When they rise up, they will be put to shame, but Your servant will rejoice. My accusers will be clothed with disgrace; they will wear their shame like a cloak. I will fervently thank You, LORD, with my mouth; I will praise You in the presence of many. For You stands at the right hand of the needy, to save us from those who would condemn us. 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:

  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray that the boxes will open doors for children to hear the Good News in parts of the world that are typically closed to proclaiming the Gospel.

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.

Community: Pray for single adults…

  • To embrace Christ as their best friend and lover of their souls
  • To more fully grasp the family heart of God
  • That God will bring them Godly friends to care for and support them
  • That God will give them a peace and drive away lonliness
  • That God will provide them with meaningful work & ministry in which to use their gifts

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. – Hebrews 10:23-25 (HCSB)
