LIFe with God: June 20, 2013

Posted on June 20, 2013


1 Samuel 22

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What did the prophet Gad tell David, and what did David do? What does Saul’s speech in verses 7-8 reveal about his character? What did Doeg tell Saul, and what horrible act did Saul command as a result? How did God preserve the priesthood, and what does David’s response reveal about his character?


Am I more like Saul or David?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
My Father and my God, Keep me from a heart like Saul–narcissistic, proud, with a victim mentality and prone to rage and violence. Instead, give me a heart like David–compassionate, obedient to you, taking responsibility for the consequences of his actions, and a defender of the oppressed. In Jesus’ Name I pray, 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:

  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan


  • Genesis World Mission


  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for Star and Eagle

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

Remain alert. Keep standing firm in your faith. Keep on being courageous and strong. Everything you do should be done in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (ISV)
