Scripture

Mark 9:1-32

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the voice from heaven say about Jesus? What was Jesus’ promise to the demon-possessed boy’s father? What was this farther’s cry to Jesus?

Application

Do I heed the instruction from the voice of God and listen to His one dear Son? Do I have a belief in Christ that makes all things possible? Do I choose to believe and ask God to help my unbelief?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You that You showed that Jesus was Your Son by speaking from heaven at His baptism and then again here at the Transfiguration. Help me to follow Your instruction to listen to Him. Help me to have the kind of faith in Him that with You all things possible. When I’m struggling with doubt, help me to choose to believe and ask You to help my unbelief. 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)

  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:
