LIFe with God: August 5, 2013

Posted on August 5, 2013


Mark 1:1-20

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


What did John teach about Jesus? What happened to Jesus in the wilderness? What did Jesus tell Simon and Andrew?


Do I give Jesus the proper reverence and position he deserves? Do I remember that He can identify with me in temptation? Do I follow Him in His pursuit to fish for men?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me to properly honor Jesus and humble myself. When I am about to yield to temptation, help me to recall that He was tempted in every way as I am, yet He did not sin, and help me to follow His example in the strength of the Holy Spirit. Help me to be a follower of Christ and a fisher of men! I ask this 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:

  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)


  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania


  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for the salvation of the lost

  • Readiness to repent
  • Hearts prepared to hear God’s voice
  • Deep dissatisfaction and unrest with life without Him
  • Godly influences

Don’t work for the food that perishes but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal of approval on Him. – John 6:37 (HCSB)
