Scripture

Nehemiah 9

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the Israelites do after a week of feasting and celebration (1-4)? Then what?

Application

Do I take time each day to confess my sin to God and to worship Him and thank Him for all he has done?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father God, I confess that I fall so far short of Your holiness. Although Christ has paid for the penalty of my sin and delivered me from the power of sin, the presence of sin lives on in my body and far too often I choose to feed it instead of denying it. Keep me close to you, I pray! Give me a heart that longs to know You, that delights in Your word, and that chooses to obey. I thank You and praise You for who You are and all You have done. 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.

  • Chris & DeAnn Smith (Sasha, Noah, Gavin, Natalie)
  • Janet Sonnenberg
  • Dave & Debbie Spears
  • Justin & Bonnie Wilkerson (Janae, Jordan)
  • Sree & Irena Yalamanchili
  • Jason & Danielle Youngblood (Kayla, Kendra)

Ministry:

  • Chapel Mission India

CLF:

  • That we would be devoted to thanksgiving and praise to our Lord–for what He has done, for what He is doing, for what He will do, and for who He is–in good times and bad.

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 #27: Are all people, just as they were lost through Adam, saved through Christ?

Children’s Answer: No, only those who are justified by God by being united to Christ by faith.

Adult’s Answer: No, only those who are justified by God by being united to Christ by faith. Nevertheless, God in His mercy demonstrates common grace even to those who are not saved by restraining the effects of sin and enabling works of culture for human well-being.

Memory Verse

Romans 5:17 (HCSB)

Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
