LIFe with God: December 12

Posted on December 12, 2011


Psalm 35

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What does David do regarding those who oppose him? How did he treat them when they were facing trials?


Do I let God fight my battles, or am I quick to jump to my own defense? Do I have genuine concern for those who oppose me, praying for them and grieving for them when they face trials?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Remind me when I am being unjustly treated and attacked that You are my deliverer, and I need to let you take care of things. Keep me from returning evil for evil. Instead, help me to love my enemies and pray for those who persecute me. I pray this in Jesus’ Name, 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 Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew)
  • Brian & Eileen Davis


  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania


  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for the poor & imprisoned

  • Salvation
  • That they will trust in God’s provision
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • That they will have hope
  • For godly mentors in the prison/jail system

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. And may your spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. – 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (HCSB)
