LIFe with God: May 29, 2013

Posted on May 29, 2013


1 Samuel 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


Where was Samuel laying? What happened while he was there? What instruction did Eli give him when he finally realized what was happening? What was God’s message? Eli’s response? What happened afterward (19-21)?


How do I respond to God’s Word? Do I submit myself to His sovereignty as Eli did in this passage? Do I believe that God will fulfill everything He says?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father, Give me spiritual ears to hear and listen when You speak. May I seek You daily in Your Word, and may I be obedient and faithful to You. Give me a heart that trusts You and reveres You, for You are the Lord, and You will do what is good and pleases You. Help me to also do what is good and pleases You. 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:

  • Robin & Florence Henderson
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham


  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing


  • 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 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

But You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts up my head. – Psalm 3:3 (HCSB)
