Scripture

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the response of the ungodly to God’s judgment?

Application

Am I obedient to God and repentant of my sin?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Heavenly Father, As I read of Your terrible judgment of plagues on the earth during its last days, my first reaction is amazement that people do not respond with repentance and worship. But then I am convicted by Your Spirit about my own life, and how I often don’t truly repent of my sinful habits. May You never have to work harshly in my life to bring me to repentance and a right relationship with You! Rather, grant that I would humble myself before You and submit to Your will and direction in my life. I ask this in the name of the 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:

  • Gil & Lois Estes
  • Gary Friend
  • Scott & Kristi Guinn (Josiah)
  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Deborah Halkola

Missionaries:

  • J & G Simon, missionaries to Austria

CLF:

  • Ask that we would be a church that is devoted to true fellowship: Pray that we would be encouraged from being united with Christ, comforted by His love, bonded with His Spirit, tender and compassionate with one another. Pray that we would be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Ask that we would do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider one another better than ourselves, looking not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of each other. Pray that we would all have the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them say: Blessing and honor and glory and dominion to the One seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever! – Revelation 5:13 (HCSB)
