Scripture

Nehemiah 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What news did Nehemiah receive? What was his response?

Application

Am I moved to weep, fast, and pray for God’s people? Do I pray according to His word?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in heaven, Help me to follow Nehemiah’s example and be moved to compassionate, heartbroken prayer and fasting when Your people are in distress. May I always pray according to Your word, seeking Your will. In Jesus’ name I ask this, 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.

  • Michael & Jenn Morgan (Eleanor)
  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz (Anabelle)
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for the relationship between generations–parents, children, grandparents

  • That the true Christian faith of older generation would be clearly communicated and passed down to children
  • That saved children in unsaved families would clearly exhibit and communicate the faith to their parents and grandparents
  • A harvest of souls of all ages
  • Good, nurturing relationships

Catechism

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #26: What else does Christ’s death redeem?

Children’s Answer: Every part of fallen creation.

Adult’s Answer: Christ’s death is the beginning of the redemption and renewal of every part of fallen creation, as he powerfully directs all things for his own glory and creation’s good.

Memory Verse

Colossians 1:19–20 (HCSB)

For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile everything to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross– whether things on earth or things in heaven.
