LIFe with God: December 7-8, 2013

Posted on December 7, 2013

Scripture

Luke 22:35-71

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jesus tell the disciples to pray? What prayer did He make that revealed His humility and obedience? What did Peter do when he realized Jesus had accurately predicted his three denials?

Application

Do I pray that I won’t enter into temptation? Do I submit my will to God’s in prayer? Am I heartbroken when I realize I have sinned?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, I ask that I would not enter into temptation. Help me to be in an attitude of prayer and on my guard. Give me a heart like that of Jesus, who prayed, “Nevertheless, not my will, but Yours, be done.” When I am confronted by the sin and shame of denying Christ with my words or actions, may my heart be soft and broken to repentance. I ask 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)
