Scripture

Genesis 14

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

After Abram and his men rescued Lot, what happened between him and Melchizedek? How did Abram respond when the king of Sodom tried to reward him?

Application

Do I offer God praise, worship, and glory for all the things He has done? Am I careful to place my relationship with God above rewards and wealth?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You for Your great victory on behalf of Abram and Lot. Thank You that Melchizedek gave You praise and instructed Abram to do the same, and that Abram obeyed. Help me to do likewise when I experience victory, for I know it comes from You and not from me. Help me to be like Abram, who refused rewards from a wicked king so that none but You would receive the glory. I ask this for Jesus’ sake and in His 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:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gil & Lois Estes

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for our state leaders…

  • Governor & his advisers
  • Judges
  • state senators and representatives
  • that they would all be faithful in carrying out their duties justly
  • that they would submit themselves to God

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray that the boxes will open doors for children to hear the Good News in parts of the world that are typically closed to proclaiming the Gospel.
