Observation

What does this passage teach us about martyred saints and those who oppose God’s will?

Application

Do I trust God to put all things right and to take care of His saints?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, As I read this passage I see how, in spite of any appearances to the contrary, You are and always will be in control of all things. Though it often seems that the good are persecuted and the wicked thrive, I thank You that You always provide for Your saints, and You will one day avenge them. I pray that men and women everywhere would turn to You before it’s too late, but I thank You that for those people, great and small, who harden their hearts and ultimately defy You, the day of Your wrath will come, and none will be able to withstand it. I pray this in the name of 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for our national leaders

  • God’s anointing on them and a desire in them to follow Him
  • For Jesus to once again be Lord and King over our nation
  • For the president and cabinet to seek after God
  • For judges to rule justly and righteously
  • For senators & representatives to pass godly legislation and block sinful bills
  • That our government would protect its citizens and punish evildoers

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore, since we have this ministry because we were shown mercy, we do not give up. Instead, we have renounced shameful secret things, not walking in deceit or distorting God’s message, but commending ourselves to every person’s conscience in God’s sight by an open display of the truth. – 2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (HCSB)
