Scripture

Genesis 32

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What caused Jacob to be afraid? What was the gist of his prayer? What new name did God give him?

Application

Do I go to God when I am afraid? Do I remember to thank Him for being so kind, faithful, and generous to me, even though I am totally unworthy? Do I lay my fears and anxieties at His feet?

Prayer

Dear Father, remind me to turn to You when I am afraid, and to cast all my cares and anxieties on You, because You care for me. I thank You for being so kind and generous to me–although I certainly never have and never will deserve it–and for being faithful to me even when I have been unfaithful to You. May I live in Your light so that it shines through me and others can see Your glory. 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.

  • 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)
