Scripture

Psalm 67

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does the psalmist ask of God (1)? For what reason (2)?

Application

Do I regularly ask for God’s blessing on His people? Do I ask out of a motive for Him to be glorified and the gospel to be spread?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Give me a heart like the psalmist, desiring that You would be gracious to us and bless us, not for the sake of my own happiness and comfort, but so that Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. Let the peoples praise You, God; let all the peoples praise You. Let the nations rejoice and shout for joy, for You judge the peoples with fairness and lead the nations on earth. Let the peoples praise You, God, let all the peoples praise You. The earth has produced its harvest, for You, our God, bless us. Please continue to bless us, and may all the ends of the earth fear You. 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:

  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

CLF:
