Matthew 19

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


Why did Jesus say about divorce? About children? About material wealth? About those who lose possessions and relationships for His sake?


How well does my life line up with the principles in this chapter?


Dear Father, Give me a heart’s desire and an iron will to stand for marriage as a monogamous covenant for life between one man and one woman. Give me a heart to minister to children, and to have childlike faith myself. Give me a heart that does not place material wealth or the relationships of friends and family above relationship with and service to Jesus Christ. In His 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast


  • Boise Rescue Mission


  • 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 Teachers & Administrators & School Boards

  • Godly curriculum
  • God’s wisdom in teaching and leading
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • Ability to inspire a love of truth and learning

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it. – Matthew 16:24-25 (HCSB)
