Scripture

Scripture

Luke 11

Observation

What are the main points Jesus taught about prayer? Why did Jesus pronounce “woes” on the religious leaders?

Application

Have I studied what the Bible has to say about prayer–the equivalent of the disciples’ request to have Jesus teach them to pray? Do I focus more on my external condition than on my internal condition?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Teach me to pray. I ask that I would be persistent and earnest in my prayer. Remind me that You are a good Father who loves His children and grants them every good and perfect gift, the greatest of which is the indwelling Holy Spirit. Thank You, Lord! Help me to be a person who hears Your Word and obeys it, and so is blessed, because the light in me will not be darkness. Grant that I would always be more concerned with who I am on the inside than with how I look on the outside. I pray these things 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:

  • 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 our state leaders…

  • Governor & his advisers
  • Judges
  • state senators and representatives
  • that they would all be faithful in carrying out their duties justly
  • that they would submit themselves to God

Operation Christmas Child:

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