Scripture

Proverbs 8

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is wisdom’s promise (verse 17-19)? What is the secret to happiness (verses 32-35)?

Application

Do I love wisdom and search for it? Do I seek happiness in the ways of the world, or in the wisdom of the Lord?

Prayer

Dear Lord, I desire to have wisdom. Remind me to seek it like treasure, and remind me that the one who sincerely seeks it will find it. May I always listen to your wisdom, disregarding the foolishness of the world, that I may have true happiness. In Jesus’ 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)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • 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.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. – Ephesians 1:7-8 (HCSB)
