Scripture

Psalm 77

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How does the psalmist contrast what he feels and what is true in spite of what he feels?

Application

Do I trust and praise God and hold fast to His faithfulness, even when my emotions and experience make me feel like He doesn’t care and won’t keep His promises?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Sometimes I don’t feel like You care about me. Sometimes I can’t see or understand how You are being faithful, and I doubt that You will fulfill Your promises. In times like that, lead me to recall Your faithful love to me and to Your people throughout history. Help me to reject my emotions and experience and reason when they are in contradiction of Your word, and strengthen me to hold on to my faith in 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:

  • 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 teens and young adults (middle school through college age) in our community

  • For Godly influences and teachers
  • For safety and protection from accidents, abuse, and predators
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For a heart to learn and to know God
  • That they will not be prodigals, but remain true to God all the days of their lives
  • That they would turn to God to fill every need, not to addictive substances and behaviors
  • Respect for parents and other authority

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For though we live in the body, we do not wage war in an unspiritual way, since the weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments and every high-minded thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive to obey Christ. – 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (HCSB)
