LIFe with God: May 26-27

Posted on May 26, 2012


Judges 9

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What plot did Abimelech carry out (1-6)? How did Jotham respond? How did God intervene?


Do I plot and scheme to get my way? Do I give in to others who do? Do I speak out against such things among God’s people, even it may be dangerous? Do I trust God to avenge His people?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Keep me from the sin of Abilemech, who was blinded by greed and power and plotted to have his own brothers killed. Keep me from the sin of his mother’s relatives, who listened to him and carried out his plans. Give me courage like Jotham, who spoke out against unrighteousness even though it was not safe for him to do so. And help me to trust in You to make things right. 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.
