1 Samuel 6

What do we learn about the power and holiness of God from this passage?


Do I give the Lord the proper reverence, respect, and awe that are due Him?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Heavenly Father, May I continually keep a sense of reverence before You. Keep me from a heart attitude like that of the Philistines, who thought they could do what they wished with Your ark and demean it before their gods, and like that of the men of Beth-Shemesh, who, although overjoyed by the return of the ark, disobeyed You and looked inside Your ark, which was forbidden. Rather, may I worship you in spirit and in truth, remembering that the only reason I can stand in Your holy presence is because of Jesus. In His 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)
