LIFe with God: September 6, 2013

Posted on September 6, 2013


Revelation 2:1-11

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What was Jesus’ rebuke for the church at Ephesus? What was His praise for the church at Smyrna?


Am I doing good works out of a heart of love or from another motive? Do I endure persecution and difficulty faithfully?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, I believe Jesus knows my works, good and bad. I ask that I would return to my first love for Him and obey Him from a heart of love. Help me to endure faithfully for You, no matter what the circumstances, knowing that I cannot be harmed by the second death. 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)


  • Boise Rescue Mission


  • 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 the salvation of the lost

  • Readiness to repent

  • Godly influences

Now to the one who works, pay is not considered as a gift, but as something owed. But to the one who does not work, but believes on Him who declares the ungodly to be righteous, his faith is credited for righteousness. – Romans 4:4-5 (HCSB)
