Scripture

Hebrews 9:1-14

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the point of the physical regulations under the Old Covenant? What did Jesus’ sacrifice accomplish under the New Covenant?

Application

Do I truly trust in the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, Thank You for the Old Covenant, which, through its physical regulations concerning food, drink, washings and sacrifices, pointed to the coming New Covenant. Thank You for that New Covenant, instated and fulfilled by Jesus Christ, who, as our high priest, in the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands (that is, not of this creation), entered the holy of holies once for all, not by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood, having obtained eternal redemption, and through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to You, thereby cleansing our consciences from dead works to serve You, the eternally living God!  In His name I pray,  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:

  • Robin & Florence Henderson
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Rural towns in Treasure Valley – Emmett, Greenleaf, Homedale, Marsing, Middleton, New Plymouth, Parma, Payette, Wilder, Weiser, etc…

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
