LIFe with God: November 25, 2013

Posted on November 25, 2013

Scripture

Luke 15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the point of the Parable of the Sheep and the Parable of the Coin? What is the primary message of the Parable of the Prodigal Son?

Application

Am I currently more like the son when he left, or when he returned?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I thank You that You are a God who pursues us. Jesus said He came to seek and save the lost, and He illustrated that with the parables in today’s passage. Lord, I don’t want to be like the prodigal, “living it up” with what the world has to offer. When I blow it, help me to “come to my senses” and remember who my Father is. May I always come home to You. I thank You that You are always waiting for me with open arms because of Jesus. I pray this in His name, 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:

  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins (Gianna)
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for Public Service Professionals (Firefighters, law enforcement, and medical personnel)…

  • Strength to serve well
  • Safety/health
  • Salvation for lost & ministry opportunities for saved
  • Strong family/marriage relationships
  • Strong, God-honoring friendships

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted. – Luke 14:11 (HCSB)
