LIFe with God: March 3, 2014

Scripture

Psalm 53

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How does this psalm describe those who deny God’s existence? How does it describe the lifestyle of such people? Roughly what percentage of the population is basically good and wise and seeks after God?

Application

Do I remind myself of the incredible mercy and amazing grace of a God who reached out to me through Christ when I was corrupt, evil, and denied Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
LORD God, Along with all of mankind, I am evil and corrupt, unwise and foolish! I did not seek after You, and I did not do good. But You are good, and You provided a means for me to be regenerated, redeemed, and resurrected, in the person of Jesus Christ! And then You drew me to Him! Thank You Lord, for saving me! 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:

  • 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 area pastors and their families:

  • Encouragement
  • Faithfulness in the Lord’s work
  • Finances
  • Marriage/family relationships
  • Work/life balance
  • Deep friendships and support from other Christian leaders

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
We give no opportunity for stumbling to anyone, so that the ministry will not be blamed. – 2 Corinthians 6:31 (HCSB)
