Scripture

Micah 5:2-5

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Who is the ruler described and promised in this passage? What predictions are made of Him in verse 2, and how are they fulfilled in Jesus? What aspects of His future rule is described in verse 4? In verse 5?

Application

Do I believe that Jesus is the Eternal One sent from God? Do I trust Him as my provider and protector, my strength and security? Is He my source of peace?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, but a ruler from Eternity! I praise Him as my Good Shepherd, almighty in divine strength. I trust in Him alone as my provider, my protector, my strength, my security, and my peace. Thank You, Father, for 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:
