LIFe with God: August 29, 2013

Scripture

Mark 14:43-72

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did Jesus get arrested at the time He did (verse 49)? Why did Peter deny he knew Jesus?

Application

What can I learn from Jesus’ attitude in the face of adversity and unfair treatment? Do I deny Jesus, either with my words or with my actions?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord Jesus, Thank You for submitting to Your Father’s will and allowing Yourself to be arrested by wicked men and tried unfairly. Help me to follow Your example to seek the Father’s will and not my own. Though Peter had good intentions, he was trusting himself and therefore failed when the test came. Help me never to trust myself, but to place my trust in You and to rely on the Spirit’s strength, not my own, in order to resist temptation and stand strong for You. I ask this in Your Name, Lord Jesus, 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:

  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for Teachers & Administrators & School Boards

  • Godly curriculum
  • God’s wisdom in teaching and leading
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • Ability to inspire a love of truth and learning

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. – Romans 1:16 (HCSB)
