Posted on July 25, 2012

Scripture

Nehemiah 10

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the people do to show their commitment to God?

Application

Though I am under grace and not under the law like the Israelites in the Old Testament, am I committed to living according to God’s word and following the leading of the Holy Spirit?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Today I renew my commitment to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ. I will come to You each day in prayer and in Your word. Help me to be a beacon of light for You in this dark world! In the name of Jesus, 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)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • 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 Public Service Professionals (Firefighters, law enforcement, and medical personnel)…

  • Strength to serve well
  • Safety/health
  • Salvation for lost & ministry opportunities for saved
  • Strong family/marriage relationships
  • Strong, God-honoring friendships

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. – James 1:22 (HCSB)
