Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Keep me from being a person who does good only when it suits me. Rather, give me a heart that chooses to do what is right even when I don’t want to! Keep me from playing favorites–may I be fair and just to people regardless of how they have treated me or what their financial or social standing might be. I pray this 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)
