Scripture

Psalm 48

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How do God’s enemies respond to Him (4-7)? How do His people respond to Him (8-11)?

Application

In my life right now, am I running to God or away from Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, You are great, holy and highly praised! You are the stronghold of Your people, and Your enemies flee in terror. I contemplate Your faithful love and praise Your name. I am so glad and thankful that because of Jesus I am Yours! Thank You that You are my God forever and You will lead me eternally! In the name of 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:

  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gil & Lois Estes
  • Gary Friend
  • Scott & Kristi Guinn (Josiah)

Missionaries:

  • J & G Simon, missionaries to Austria

CLF:

  • Ask that we would be a church that is devoted to true fellowship: Pray that we would be encouraged from being united with Christ, comforted by His love, bonded with His Spirit, tender and compassionate with one another. Pray that we would be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Ask that we would do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider one another better than ourselves, looking not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of each other. Pray that we would all have the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.

Community: Pray for Outreach Ministries

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, certain that God is appealing through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.” He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. – 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (HCSB)
