Scripture

Proverbs 24

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What can help gain victory in a conflict (verse 6)? How should a godly person respond when his enemy falls (17)?

Application

Do I seek the sound guidance of godly counselors when facing trial, hardship, or conflict? Do I gloat and rejoice when someone who has wronged me falls, or do I pray for them?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, Remind me to seek the sound guidance of godly counselors when facing trial, hardship, or conflict, so that I may have victory. Help me to remember not to gloat and rejoice when someone who has wronged me falls, but to remember Jesus’ instruction to love my enemies and to pray for those who persecute me. 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 Media Industries (TV/Movies, Radio/Music, Print/Internet)

  • Godly themes/influences
  • Christian workers at all levels sensitive to God’s leading
  • Salvation for influential media leaders
  • Courage to share God’s message
  • Financial rewards for wholesome media

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground. – Psalm 143:10 (HCSB)
