Memory Verse for the Week: Exodus 14:13-14 & 31
"And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” … Israel saw the great power that the LORD used against the Egyptians, so the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and in his servant Moses."

YOU CAN PRAY WITH US ...
1. Worship the LORD for His grace to save us as His people! Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that He is loving, wise and all-powerful in His work on our behalf.
2. How have you lived self-reliant, as if God cannot be trusted? Confess your pride and unbelief to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and secure you in His power to save vs. your impotence before your guilt and deadness.
3. Give thanks to Jesus for His unrivaled work to come to our rescue, standing between us and what would destroy us. Thank Him that in His holiness, that He would fight for us by His love, wisdom and power.
4. Who do you know that questions Jesus’ relevance? Pray for them, asking the Lord to convince them of just how overwhelmed they should be because of their guilt and spiritual deadness.
5. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you quit seeking to define yourself by your own efforts, and to trust Jesus’ work on your behalf. Pray that the Spirit would bear in your heart the fruit of love, joy and peace.
