Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord Jesus, Help me to remain in Your love by following Your commands to love You and to love Your people as You loved me. I ask that by Your Holy Spirit You would reveal to me ways to show Your love to my brothers and sisters in Christ, and to the lost people that You have placed in my life. I pray this in the Name of Jesus, 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.

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #32: What do justification and sanctification mean?

Children’s Answer: Justification means our declared righteousness before God. Sanctification means our gradual, growing righteousness.

Adult’s Answer: Justification means our declared righteousness before God, made possible by Christ’s death and resurrection for us. Sanctification means our gradual, growing righteousness, made possible by the Spirit’s work in us.
