Scripture

Ecclesiastes 12

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does Solomon surmise (at the beginning and ending of this chapter) is the only thing that truly matters in life?

Application

Does my life display for others that I remember God is my Creator, that I fear Him and obey Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Oh Lord, my God, You alone created all things, including me. Thank You for redeeming me through the saving power of the death and resurrection of Jesus! By Your Spirit’s indwelling power, help me to obey You and show others that You are my God. I ask 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.

  • 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

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray for the collection and processing of shoe boxes as we anticipate sharing the love of Jesus Christ with multitudes of children across the world.
  • Catechism

    PART 3: SPIRIT, RESTORATION, GROWING IN GRACE

    Question #48: What is the church?

    Children’s Answer: The church is the family of God and the body of Christ, of which He is the head.

    Adult’s Answer: The church is the family of God and the body of Christ, of which He is the head. The universal church is all those who have received salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. The local church is a community of members of the universal church, who worship together, encourage and learn from one another, build each other up in the knowledge and grace of God, and spur each other on to good works. God sends out this community to proclaim the gospel and prefigure Christ’s kingdom by the quality of their life together and their love for one another.

    Memory Verse

    1 Corinthians 12:13-14,27 (HCSB)

    For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free–and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.So the body is not one part but many. Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it.
