Scripture

Psalms 110-111

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Psalm 110: Of whom is this psalm prophesying? (See Matthew 22:41-45 )
Psalm 111: Why should we praise God? How does one gain wisdom and insight?

Application

Do I praise God for prophecy and the fulfillment of prophecy? Do I praise God for who He is and for all He has done? Do I fear Him and follow His instructions?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
LORD my God, Thank You for Your plan, made before the foundation of the earth, to send Your Son to be my Savior. Thank You for the prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament, and for their fulfillment in Jesus Christ in the New Testament. I will praise You, LORD, with all my heart in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation. Your works are great, studied by all who delight in them. All that You do is splendid and majestic; Your righteousness endures forever. You have caused Your wonderful works to be remembered. You are gracious and compassionate. You have provided food for those who fear You. You remember Your covenant forever. You’ve shown Your people the power of Your works by giving them the inheritance of the nations. The works of Your hands are truth and justice; all Your instructions are trustworthy. They are established forever and ever, enacted in truth and uprightness. You have sent redemption to Your people. You have ordained Your covenant forever. Your name is holy and awe-inspiring. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow Your instructions have good insight. Your praise endures forever. 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
  • Dan & Jenn Loeschke
  • Corey & Sheryl Morasch
  • Cody Morgan
  • Kyle Morgan
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan

Ministry:

  • Christian Pro-Life Ministries in Idaho (Idaho Chooses Life, Stanton Health Care, etc)

CLF:

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

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
