Scripture

Observation

How can we find rest for our souls?

Application

Am I anxious, worried, and frazzled, or do I find rest in Jesus?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, May my city be one that responds to Your work and to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May we not be like the towns Jesus criticized that responded in unbelief, but rather may we respond in repentance. May we not take offense at Him. I believe that no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides to reveal Him. Help us to come to Christ to find rest for our souls. I pray all of this in the mighty and precious name of 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:

  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack, Emma, Lucy)
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Andy Lanning
