Scripture

Luke 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did John describe himself and his ministry compared to Jesus and His ministry?

Application

Do I fall into the trap of thinking too highly of myself and not highly enough of Jesus?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I ask that I would not base my standing before You on any claims of human ancestry or privilege, but only on my relationship with Jesus. I ask that I would produce fruit in keeping with repentance. I thank You that One much more powerful than I has come, whose sandals I am not worthy to untie, and yet, He took the penalty for my sin on Himself and died in my place. I thank You that because I have received Your free gift, I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and have eternal life! Help me to live a life worthy of my calling in Christ. I pray this in the 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:

  • Dakota “Koty” & Kayla Molner
  • 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 the relationship between generations–parents, children, grandparents

  • That the true Christian faith of older generation would be clearly communicated and passed down to children
  • That saved children in unsaved families would clearly exhibit and communicate the faith to their parents and grandparents
  • A harvest of souls of all ages
  • Good, nurturing relationships

Operation Christmas Child:

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