Observation

What do the healings of the woman with bleeding, the ruler’s daughter, and the two blind men have in common? Why did He feel compassion on the crowds (36)?

Application

Do I have faith that Christ can change my circumstances at any time He wills? Do I pray for and minister to the weary and worn out? Do I go to Jesus when I get that way?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You that You have power over sickness, infirmities, disabilities, and even death! Help me to trust You to take care of me, and to follow You in faith whether You choose to deliver me or strengthen me to persevere. Help me to go to Jesus when I am weary and worn out, and to have compassion for others who are in that situation and pray for them. 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for County leaders…

  • Commissioners, Assessor, Coroner, Treasurer, Clerks, Judges, Prosecutors, Defenders, Sheriffs
  • that they would make sound financial decisions
  • that they would all be faithful in carrying out their duties justly
  • that they would submit themselves to God
