Congrats to Mitch! This was Mitch's second Helmet of the Season! Phoenix and Stephen were there at the end with Mitch. All three guys were fighting for their second Helmet of the season, but in the end it was Mitch winning the Helmet and the Yorkie!
This week we played Mike 23 for the second time this year. We added 4 new exercise balls, bringing our total number of exercise balls up to 10. There were also 13 Murderballs making it 23 balls. (Hence Mike 23) In one round the scores go up and in the next the scores go down. After six rounds each team's score can range between 20 and negative 20. In the last two rounds, Ben's team pulled away, winning big!
MIKE 23 Final Scores
Dan's team - 1
Noah's team - 2
Lukas' team - 3
Ben's team - 8
In Bible study Ben talked about prayer and godliness.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2:8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Everyone is supposed to pray and we are supposed to pray for all people! The thought of praying for all people is overwhelming! This is one reason why we need to pray continually!
1 Timothy 4:7-8 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Timothy 6:11 But you, man of God, pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
In order for our prayers to be effective we need to live Godly lives. The question is, what does Godliness look like?
Galatians 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
If we would pattern our lives after this last passage we would be living godly lives! Not only will we pray more, but we will also know what to pray for!
