Hosea 6

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway


How should God’s people respond to His discipline? What does God desire from them (6)?


Do I return to God in humble repentance when He disciplines me? Do I strive to know Him better and give Him my loyalty, or do I simply go through the motions of religious practices without my heart really being in it?


Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, First, I ask that I would live in such a way as to not require Your discipline. But if I should stumble and You choose to discipline me, may I never respond with anger and resentment toward You, but rather by remembering that You are a Father who disciplines Your children because You love them. Therefore, may I respond in humility, coming to You in repentance with a renewed commitment to know You better and follow You more faithfully. I pray this 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.

  • Dustin and Amy Barton
  • Debbie Brueggemann
  • Michelle Caldwell
  • Kathi Carr
  • Loran “Bud” Clark


  • Compassion International


  • That we will be devoted to evangelism and growth; that the Lord will add to our numbers those who are being saved.
