LIFe with God: June 19, 2013

Posted on June 19, 2013


1 Samuel 21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What lie did David tell Ahimilech? Where did David go? What did he do when he feared for his life in Gath?


Do I tell lies, run and hide, and pretend to be something I’m not, or do i trust God and live boldly for Him?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father, Even David, the man after your own heart, got scared sometimes and fell into sin. Help me to learn from his life that it is always better to trust you than to take matters into my own hands. 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.
