Scripture

Acts 3

Observation

What happened at the Beautiful Gate? What was the key point of Peter’s address?

Application

As a spiritual beggar who has been healed and given eternal life, do I “leap” and praise God? Do I make sure to give God the credit for His work?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You for Your renewing power through the blood of Jesus Christ! Though I was spiritually lame and unable to make my way to You, still You healed my spirit through the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. I praise You for Your glory, power, mercy, and grace! Help me never to take credit for the things You have done. 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
