LIFe with God: May 11

Posted on May 11, 2011


Mark 6:30-56

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What did Jesus tell His disciples in verse 31? Why didn’t the disciples understand about the loaves?


Do I take time to come away privately with Jesus to an isolated place and rest awhile in Him? Is my heart too hard to understand what God is doing in my life?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I ask that You would remind me to come away privately with Jesus to an isolated place and rest awhile on a regular basis. Help me to trust in Him to provide in every situation and not to fear. Keep my heart from being hardened and let me be open to whatever You want to do in and through my life. I ask all of this in the name of the One who gave Himself for me, Jesus Christ. 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)
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover


  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing


  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Pray for the elderly…

  • That they will be treated respectfully
  • That they will not dwell on mistakes and regret
  • That God will provide for their health and finances
  • That God will protect them from those who would try to harm them
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • Any broken family relationships restored before they pass on

With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and to this end be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:18
