LIFe with God: February 14, 2013

Posted on February 14, 2013

Scripture

Zechariah 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did God refuse to answer the people’s prayers?

Application

Do I ignore God in the good times, treat people in a hard-hearted manner, and then expect Him to bail me out when difficulties arise?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, Keep me from the things that would hinder my prayer. Strengthen me to be obedient to You and loving to my fellow man, I ask, 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:

  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for our state leaders…

  • Governor & his advisers
  • Judges
  • state senators and representatives
  • that they would all be faithful in carrying out their duties justly
  • that they would submit themselves to God

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. – 1 Corinthians 4:20 (HCSB)
