Scripture

Joshua 20

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does this chapter tell us about how God wants justice to be handled in human government?

Application

Do I seek justice on my own terms, or on God’s and the government that he has put or allowed to be in place? On a smaller scale, do I seek revenge for perceived wrongs before I have all the facts?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I acknowledge that You are sovereign, and the powers-that-be are there by Your will. Keep me from the desire to practice vigilantism, trusting You to see justice done in Your timing. Keep me from a heart that seeks revenge, especially in the heat of the moment before I have all the facts. Help me to extend forgiveness and mercy wherever possible. 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:

  • Dakota “Koty” & Kayla Molner
  • Corey & Cheryl 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 the elderly…

  • That they will be treated respectfully
  • That they will not dwell on mistakes and regret
  • That God will provide for their health and finances
  • That God will protect them from those who would try to harm them
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • Any broken family relationships restored before they pass on

Operation Christmas Child:

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