LIFe with God: February 13, 2014

Posted on February 13, 2014

Scripture

Psalm 38

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did David respond to his own sin? What was his declaration (15)?

Application

Do I treat sin seriously? Do I trust in the saving grace of the blood of Jesus Christ to buy my pardon?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Blessed God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am heavy-hearted when I think of how much and how often I sin. It overwhelms me. You see it all, and I am without excuse. I cannot do anything to make it right. So I do the only thing I can, Lord: I put my hope in You. I put my trust in Christ my Savior, and I claim His blood as the only payment for my sin, and the righteousness imputed to me by Him as my only way to be righteous. And because of Jesus, I know that You hear me, You answer me, You forgive me, and You save me! I thank You in Jesus’ 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:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Christian Pro-Life Ministries in Idaho (Idaho Chooses Life, Stanton Health Care, etc)

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for our national leaders

  • God’s anointing on them and a desire in them to follow Him
  • For Jesus to once again be Lord and King over our nation
  • For the president and cabinet to seek after God
  • For judges to rule justly and righteously
  • For senators & representatives to pass godly legislation and block sinful bills
  • That our government would protect its citizens and punish evildoers

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us. – 2 Corinthians 4:6-7 (HCSB)
