Exodus 10:1-12:13 ~ Matthew 20:1-28 ~ Psalm 25:1-11 ~ Proverbs 6:6-11
Today is the 30th of January. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is great to be here with you today to take the next step in our adventure that we are on together through the Bible this year and in the Old Testament today we’ll pick up where we left off, where there are plagues that are falling on Egypt. Exodus chapter 10, verse 1 through 12:13 today.
Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for each other. We thank you for this community centered around your word and we thank you for what you’ve done in these 30 days that we’ve already been at this so far this year. You have been faithful to us and we have learned much. You have in just a short time begun to shake us in the most kind and gentle and loving ways, pulling us forward. Finally some of the ruts that we’ve been in we’re moving away from. So we invite your Holy Spirit to continue to speak through your word every day this year, continue to pull us forward and may we continue to collaborate with you in this work of becoming new, in this work of sanctification in our hearts, which only you can do, and in this world that you have invited us into. So come Holy Spirit, we pray, in the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

Community Prayer Requests and Praise Reports
Hello Daily Audio Bible. This is __________ from __________. I was listening to the Daily Audio Bible today. I believe that it was __________ 26th day of January and I heard __________, forgive me for not remembering his name, but he called in relation to his wife having a miscarriage a couple days ago and that they are both, especially his wife having a hard time and the fact that this is the first time they have ever been through anything like this. I’m sure nobody ever wants to go through anything like this. The thing is I don’t have the right words to say. I don’t know how to make it better with words, but I just want you to know that you are being prayed for. I have been praying for both of you constantly and I want you to also know that God will restore everything that you have lost. So hang in there. Have faith. Know that __________ from __________ and so many other Dabbers will be praying for you guys nonstop. Trust and believe that God has his hand in all of this. And just know that I am praying for you and I hope that you feel encouraged and just continue to lean on God and trust what you know, which is who God is in a time when it doesn’t feel right. I always try to remember that. You can’t always trust how you feel and in those moments when you can’t, you just have to rely on what you know for a fact and that is that God is unchanging. He will always be there. He has your back and he will restore what you have lost because his word says that. I also want to say where is David from Kansas? I believe Kansas. I haven’t heard you since January 2nd. Check in. Let us know how you’re doing. I constantly pray for you and I hope all is well.
Hello family. This is Kenny in Ohio. Just listened to the January 26th podcast and two individuals just broke my heart and the Holy Spirit led me to call. The first is McKenzie and the anxiety attacks. Praying over you, that the Lord moves in mysterious and powerful ways over this anxiety and that in the mighty name of Jesus it will not have any hold over you. And what Brian was speaking in Matthew, in that what Peter would __________ on this earth would be bound in heaven and we’re binding up this anxiety and that __________ be removed in the mighty name of Jesus right now, Father. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Also with Tim and Carissa and the loss of their baby, my heart is grieving over that. We just had a miscarriage about four months ago and __________ again. My heart just breaks for you. Just know that your little one is with God and I just pray that God would open up Carissa’s womb, that there be no barrier to a child being born. Lord, I pray this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Love you all. Have a great day.
Hello DAB family. This is Chante calling from Detroit and I’m calling in for Tim and Carissa. I am just lifting you all up and I’m so sorry to hear about your baby. I just wanted to let you know that we are praying for you, we love you, and it will get better. We have a beautiful testimony here at DAB in regard to Pelham and Molly who were in your circumstance just a year ago and this year they have a new baby boy. So it will get better and we love you. And also wanted to call in for McKenzie who deals with anxiety. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you. I can completely relate. I deal with anxiety as well and it just so happens that day that you called I had a really bad panic attack. Oftentimes when that happens to me, I find out that my thoughts, I was focusing too much on my ability, putting too much pressure on myself and so I encourage you to read Philippians 4 through 8, but really to focus on do not be anxious for anything. I don’t mean to sound insensitive when I say this, but we have to be intentional about what we’re thinking, so we need to choose not be anxious. I know it is not easy. Like I said, I had a panic attack the same day that you called…
Good afternoon, morning and evening. This is Bernie from Nashville. I’m a long time listener and I’m calling today because I would just like to invite you guys into my life and pray over me and my family. I do for you as well. I listen to all the prayers that come in. You guys touch my heart and I pray for certain people. It’s just a beautiful thing. So here we go. I’m just going to share my heart with you. I have five children. I’ve been married for about 15 years and my wife homeschools. I work quite a bit so my wife and I have kind of gone in separate ways, but not really. I mean, we’re living but we’re not really living. We’re existing and getting through and just kind of become common. I just want a deeper walk with my wife. Just as I’m searching for a deeper walk with God and inviting him into everything, I want to invite him into this too. I need a little more intimacy with my wife. So the prayer is just for whatever walls that have been put up, division that has happened, communication and all that, for that to be broken and for intimacy to be strong between us, for our foundation just to be where it needs to be and for God to show me how to love my wife as he designed her to be loved. I think that is what I’m trying to say. Yeah, yeah, I want to love my wife like she is designed to be loved, how he made her. So Lord, I just ask right now, Father…
Good morning Dabbers. I’m a burning bush that will not be devoured for the glory of our Lord and King. Today is the 26th, I believe. Yeah, today is the 26th of January and I just heard little Gigi. Oh my gosh! Oh my God! Beautiful Gigi from Gainesville. Wow, your call was the icing on top of the beautiful cake which was the Bible reading for today and what Brian said. I mean, this morning we were talking about faith and the disciples being unable to heal a child who had epilepsy and Jesus saying well, you don’t have faith. You just don’t have faith. If you had faith as big as a mustard seed, you would do this. And here is Gigi calling in and saying I have faith. I have faith that God is going to heal me. Gigi, I agree with you. I agree with you in prayer today. I am going to stand by you and believe God for your healing. Your words are so encouraging and while she was leaving this request, saying I believe God, she had a seizure. And the phone cut off and she had to call back again. She said “I just had another seizure, but I believe God.” Oh Gigi, you have inspired me today. Oh God, you’re so amazing. God is so amazing. I just pray blessings upon you. Blessings and blessings upon you. You will be great. You are greatness and I pray that God’s hope in your life will be seen to the DAB and the people around you, that you will leave that room and you will just be an inspiration to so many. And I believe God with you, for your healing, in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. God, you’re so worthy. God, you’re so worthy.
This is Bob from Michigan and I’m lifting up today Tim and Carissa from New Mexico on the recent loss of their child in the womb. Tim, I feel your pain. I hear your pain. Forty-three years ago my wife and I had the similar circumstance so I know the pain of having to call people you once were excited to tell and have to relay the bad news. I now have a 41-year-old son who is doing great. Three years ago my daughter had a similar miscarriage and that was going to be my first grandchild, so again I hear your pain. I can only offer the hope is that you will overcome this, you and your wife. Keep your focus on the Lord and he will carry you through. God will carry you through this trial and we are praying for you, come alongside you. A joy shared is doubled. A sorrow shared is halved. God bless you.
