Observation

Why should we praise God? How does one gain wisdom and insight?

Application

Do I praise God for who he is and for all he has done? Do I fear Him and follow His instructions?

Prayer

Dear Father, Hallelujah! I will praise You, LORD, with all my heart in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation. Your works are great, studied by all who delight in them. All that You do is splendid and majestic; Your righteousness endures forever. You have caused Your wonderful works to be remembered. You are gracious and compassionate. You have provided food for those who fear You. You remember Your covenant forever. You’ve shown Your people the power of Your works by giving them the inheritance of the nations. The works of Your hands are truth and justice; all Your instructions are trustworthy. They are established forever and ever, enacted in truth and uprightness. You have sent redemption to Your people. You have ordained Your covenant forever. Your name is holy and awe-inspiring. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow Your instructions have good insight. Your praise endures forever. 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.

  • Michael Morgan
  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray for the National Leadership Team volunteers who work with local churches to distribute the shoe boxes and to implement “The Greatest Journey.”

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for marriages in our community…

  • that Christ-like love would be exhibited
  • for good communication between spouses
  • for unity in finances
  • salvation for non-believing spouses
  • that they would balance work and home life
  • that Godly friends and mentors would come alongside them.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. – Hebrews 10:23-25 (HCSB)
