Observation

What happened in the conflicts with Ammon and Philistia?

Application

Do I trust God to fulfill His promises?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You for faithfully keeping Your covenant with David. You promised Him You would make Him great and give him victory over his enemies, and You fulfilled Your promise. But even more important, You fulfilled Your promise to him that One would come from his line who would rule from Jerusalem in peace and justice forever, and You fulfilled that promise in the person of Jesus Christ! I believe He WILL return, judge the world and reign forevermore! In His 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:

  • Dave & Debbie Spears
  • Mike & Ann Thorn
  • Donna Thurman
  • Steve Vinsonhaler
  • Justin & Bonnie Wilkerson (Janae, Jordan)
  • Sree & Irena Yalamanchili (Aria)

Ministry:

  • Mugabi Charities – ministering to orphans in Uganda

CLF:

  • That we would be devoted to thanksgiving and praise to our Lord–for what He has done, for what He is doing, for what He will do, and for who He is–in good times and bad.

Community: Pray for Unity in the Body of Christ…

  • that we would be united in our love for Jesus and each other
  • that we would encourage and support each other
  • that we would focus on Biblical principles in every arena of our lives
  • that we would have a spirit of cooperation in outreach
