LIFe with God: September 21

Posted on September 21, 2011

Scripture

Proverbs 18

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What should the Christian do when facing trouble (verse 10)? Why is important to do our best not to offend others (19)?

Application

Do I trust in God and run to him when facing trial, hardship, or danger? Do I exercise caution so as not to offend others, or am I careless and inconsiderate?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, Remind me that You are my strong tower, and if I run to You I will find protection. Help me to trust in You and not in myself. Make me sensitive to how my words and actions impact others, and keep me from causing offenses. I ask these things in the name of Your Son, 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

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • 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 Nampa

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Don’t work only while being watched, in order to please men, but as slaves of Christ, do God’s will from your heart. – Ephesians 6:6 (HCSB)
