LIFe with God: February 28, 2013

Posted on February 28, 2013

Scripture

Malachi 2

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does God have to say to the priests? Why is God angry with the people (13-16)?

Application

Has my heart grown cold to God, and am I causing others to stumble? Do I respect and guard the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, Thank You that in Jesus You have made a covenant of life and peace with me. May I ever revere You and stand in awe of Your name. May true instruction be in my mouth, and nothing wrong found on my lips. Let me walk with You in peace and fairness and turn many from sin as a messenger of You, Lord of Hosts. Keep me from causing anyone to stumble. Help me to see marriage as a sacred and holy trust, and may I always stand for up it in general and (if I am married) specifically in my own life toward my own spouse for Your glory. I ask this 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 Media Industries (TV/Movies, Radio/Music, Print/Internet)

  • Godly themes/influences
  • Christian workers at all levels sensitive to God’s leading
  • Salvation for influential media leaders
  • Courage to share God’s message
  • Financial rewards for wholesome media

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (HCSB)
