Scripture

2 Timothy 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What benefit did Timothy have in regard to his upbringing? What challenge does Paul give him?

Application

Did I benefit from a godly heritage in my family? Will I see to it that those who come after me will benefit from a godly heritage as far as it lies with me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, I thank You for those in my life who set an example of godliness, whether they were within or without my family, in my youth or later in life. Help me to keep a fire for You ablaze in my life, and to leave a godly heritage for those who follow me. I thank You that it is not my works that save me, but according to Your own purpose and grace given to me in Christ before time began. 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)
