Matthew 8

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What was the meaning of Jesus’ response to the Jewish teacher and to the disciple who wanted to say goodbye to his parents?


Is Jesus the first priority in my life, or do I put other things ahead of Him?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Jesus, Thank You for Your healing power. I lift up my friends and loved ones who need to be made whole and ask You to touch them with Your healing hand. Help me to follow hard after You and to love You with my whole heart, above material possessions and comforts, and above all other relationships. Help me to ever trust You, no matter the circumstances. In Your name I pray, 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.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)


  • Boise Rescue Mission


  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for marriages in our community…

  • that Christ-like love would be exhibited
  • for good communication between spouses
  • for unity in finances
  • salvation for non-believing spouses
  • that they would balance work and home life
  • that Godly friends and mentors would come alongside them.

So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith. – Galatians 6:10 (NET)
