Observation

What do God’s people need to do if they want to experience His presence (15)?

Application

When I sin, do I recognize my guilt and seek God in repentance?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Heavenly Father, May I never reach a point where I am so immersed in a sinful lifestyle that You have to punish me by removing the sense of Your presence from me. Rather, when I fall, may I quickly recognize my sinfulness and humbly seek You with a repentant heart. 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:

  • 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.
