Scripture

Matthew 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What are Jesus’ instructions regarding making requests of God? About false teachers?

Application

Do I ask God for the things I need? Am I on guard against wolves in sheep’s clothing?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, I ask that You would help me to keep from passing judgment on others before I examine myself. Help me to bring my needs to You and to trust You to provide them. And help me to be on the alert against false teachers. I ask this in the Name of the Lord Jesus, 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.

  • Chris & DeAnn Smith (Sasha, Noah, Gavin, Natalie)
  • Janet Sonnenberg
  • Dave & Debbie Spears
  • Justin & Bonnie Wilkerson (Janae, Jordan)
