LIFe with God: February 7, 2019

Posted on February 7, 2019

Scripture

Genesis 38

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What string of sinful decisions happen in this chapter? How does Judah reveal his hypocrisy (24)? How does he respond when he realizes it (26)?

Application

Do I get angry with others for the very things that I do? Do I remember that God has forgiven me and calls me to forgive others?

Prayer

Dear Father, keep me from a heart that judges others for the very sins I have committed. Help me to forgive others as You have forgiven me. Keep me from making sinful decisions, and especially from the type that could cause a chain reaction in my family. Keep me on the path to which You’ve called me, Lord. 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:

  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Dan & Jenn Loeschke
  • Corey & Sheryl Morasch
  • Cody Morgan
  • Kyle Morgan
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan

Ministry:

  • Christian Pro-Life Ministries in Idaho (Idaho Chooses Life, Stanton Health Care, etc)

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for single adults…

  • To embrace Christ as their best friend and lover of their souls
  • To more fully grasp the family heart of God
  • That God will bring them Godly friends to care for and support them
  • That God will give them a peace and drive away lonliness
  • That God will provide them with meaningful work & ministry in which to use their gifts

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray for God to provide the wisdom, resources, and volunteers needed to oversee this expanding global outreach to children.
