Scripture

Genesis 41

Observation

What did Pharaoh’s dream mean? How did God use it?

Application

Can I look back at my life and see how God has used circumstances that were painful at the time to work out for my good?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You that Joseph was betrayed by his brothers, falsely accused by Potipher’s wife, and wrongly imprisoned, because You used all of those circumstances to bring him before Pharaoh and become vice-regent of Egypt. As a result of that, his family and the future nation of Israel was saved. Thank You that You use even the difficult and trying circumstances in my life for my good and Your glory if I am devoted to You. Keep me devoted to You! I ask You 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:

  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Joshua, Jonathan, Sophia)
  • Gil & Lois Estes
  • Gary Friend
  • Scott & Kristi Guinn (Josiah)

Missionaries:

  • J & G Simon, missionaries to Austria

CLF:

  • Ask that we would be a church that is devoted to true fellowship: Pray that we would be encouraged from being united with Christ, comforted by His love, bonded with His Spirit, tender and compassionate with one another. Pray that we would be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Ask that we would do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider one another better than ourselves, looking not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of each other. Pray that we would all have the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
He doesn’t need to offer sacrifices every day, as high priests do–first for their own sins, then for those of the people. He did this once for all when He offered Himself. – Hebrews 7:27 (HCSB)
