Scripture

Luke 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why was Jesus amazed at the Centurion? How did Jesus’ response to the “sinful woman’s” extravagant gesture differ from the response of those watching?

Application

Do I act in faith in a way that would amaze Jesus? Do I willingly worship Him extravagantly?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I am convicted as I read this chapter. Too often, my faith is weak, instead of amazing, like the Centurion’s. Even raising the dead is not an issue for You–help me with my unbelief! My Savior performed miracles of every kind, proving He is who He said He is. Help me to trust Him more. Grant that I would never look down on others, or resent someone for worshiping You extravagantly. Rather, may I join them as an extravagant, heartfelt worshiper. 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)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Pat Dumandan
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gary Friend

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

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 that the boxes will open doors for children to hear the Good News in parts of the world that are typically closed to proclaiming the Gospel.
