Scripture

Genesis 45

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did his brothers respond when they realized this ruler who held their fate was Joseph? How did Joseph respond to them? What did Pharaoh do for them because of Joseph? What was Jacob’s response?

Application

Do I look for ways that God has used for good in my life that which others intended for evil? Do I look for ways to bless others with the blessings I’ve been given–even those who intended evil for me? Do I conduct myself with the kind of character and integrity that makes people want to bless others because of me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in heaven, Thank You for the example that Joseph set for Your people down through the ages! I ask that You would give me a heart like Joseph’s, that trusts You patiently, that is compassionate and forgiving, and that seeks to bless others–even those who have caused harm. In Jesus’ name I pray, 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 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 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 for God to provide the wisdom, resources, and volunteers needed to oversee this expanding global outreach to children.
