Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I praise You that even though Your two witnesses are killed and apparently defeated, You resurrect them and call them to heaven in triumph! I thank you that after the earthquake immediately following that event, people will finally give You the glory You deserve. I thank you that one day the kingdom of the world will be put right again as Your kingdom and Christ will reign in power and majesty. And I thank You that i will join with the 24 elders that day in praising You: “We give you thanks, Lord God, the All-Powerful, the one who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun to reign. ​​​​​​​The nations were enraged, but your wrath has come, and the time has come for the dead to be judged, and the time has come to give to your servants, the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints and to those who revere your name, both small and great, and the time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth.” 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

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)
