LIFe with God: October 8, 2012

Psalm 83

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


For what ultimate reason does Asaph pray for God to take vengeance?


Do I seek my own vengeance to make myself feel better, or do I leave vengeance up to God for His own glory?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, There are people in the world who desire to rid the earth of Your name and glory and who long to kill all of Your people. I ask that You would cover their faces with shame so that they will seek Your name, LORD. May they know that You alone–whose name is Yahweh–are the Most High over all the earth. 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
  • Brian & Eileen Davis
  • Patti Doty


  • 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 orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 (HCSB)
