LIFe with God: March 27, 2014

Posted on March 27, 2014

Scripture

Psalm 74

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did Asaph feel about God (1, 9, 10-11)? What brought him some comfort (12-17)? What does He ask (18-23)?

Application

How do I respond when I feel like God is a million miles away and not involved in my life? Do I recall His great works in the past? Do I ask Him to arise again?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father, Keep me from being ruled by my emotions. Help me to remember that You always keep Your promises, and You promised never to leave me or forsake me; so that is true, even when I can’t see it or don’t feel it. Help me to recall Your mighty works in times past to encourage me, and call me to continue in prayer until You answer. 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 Public Service Professionals (Firefighters, law enforcement, and medical personnel)…

  • Strength to serve well
  • Safety/health
  • Salvation for lost & ministry opportunities for saved
  • Strong family/marriage relationships
  • Strong, God-honoring friendships

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Each person should do as he has decided in his heart–not reluctantly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7 (HCSB)
