Scripture

Psalm 120-121

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

From what does the psalmist ask to be delivered in Psalm 120? What blessing of God does he declare in Psalm 121?

Application

Do I ask God for deliverance from dishonesty in my own speech, as well as from the dishonesty of others? Do I praise Him for His protection?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, I thank You that you hear me when I pray. I ask that you would keep me from being harmed by the dishonesty of others as well as myself. My help comes from You, LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. You protect me; You are my shelter. You protect me from all harm, now and forever. Thank, You, Lord! 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 Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Patti Doty

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray for God to direct each shoe box gift into the hands of just the right child so that each one will experience His unconditional love and provision.

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for area pastors and their families:

  • Encouragement
  • Faithfulness in the Lord’s work
  • Finances
  • Marriage/family relationships
  • Work/life balance
  • Deep friendships and support from other Christian leaders

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Why am I so depressed? Why this turmoil within me? Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him, my Savior and my God. – Psalm 42:11 (HCSB)
