Observation

What causes a godly person to be truly happy and stable and to keep from giving in to worldly philosophies and temptation (verse 2)?

Application

How much time do I spend meditating on the Lord’s instruction as revealed in His Word?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, I want to have a truly happy life. I do not want to follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path of sinners, or join a group of mockers! Instead, I want to delight in Your instruction, and meditate on it day and night so that I will be like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Help me to do this so that whatever I do will prosper because it will be in Your will, the only true measure of real prosperity. Thank You that You watch over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin. In Jesus’ name I pray, 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:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins (Gianna)
  • Patti Doty

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 Star and Eagle

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. – 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 (HCSB)
