Bible Friday 10/5: Intercession

Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?

Psalms 107:1-43. Verse 29 KJV, what storm do I need God to calm right now, in me or around me or in our world? How do I know he can?

Job 42:1-17. Verse 10, what friends should I be praying for today? With what motive?

Ezra 2:1-70. Verse 69, how far short of my ability to give, is my giving to the work of God right now? Action point?

Luke 6:17-19. With Jesus no longer among us in the flesh, what’s the equivalent of “seeking to touch him” in my need of his healing power? Action point?
