Leviticus 7:28-9:6 ~ Mark 3:31-4:25 ~ Psalm 37:12-29 ~ Proverbs 10:5

Today is the 19th day of February.  Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible.  I’m Brian.  It is great to be here with you at the threshold of this brand new week that will unfold before us, and we’re doing the right thing by centering ourselves in the scriptures as we move into this week.  So steaming cup of Windfarm coffee to my left, and words in front of me, with a microphone, of course, to my right, and off we go, back out into the desert with the children of Israel as their customs and rituals and laws and festivals are all being put into place, things that will over time create a completely different culture than had ever existed, one chosen and instructed and informed by God himself.  Leviticus chapter 7, verse 28 through 9:6 and we’ll read from the God’s Word translation this week.  


Father, we thank you for another week in your word and as we move forward, the story begins to fill in and have texture and complexion and nuance.  These people that we’re getting to know, we find ourselves in their stories, and so we thank you.  As we move through this threshold into the next week, we invite you into everything about us, everything that we’ll say this week.  May our tongues be guided by the power of your Holy Spirit.  Everything that we have to think and process and reason out this week, we ask for your holy counsel, and all of the choices that we need to make, we ask for your wisdom. In every interaction that we have with another person this week, we invite your Holy Spirit.  Speak through us to our spouses.  Speak through us to our children.  Speak through us to our coworkers and those that we attend church with and everyone that we come into contact with.  We want your essence to be the main thing that people see about us. So we invite you fully.  We long for intimacy with you this week, to walk with you in a friendship that is loyal and true.  We want to be delighted by your presence in our lives.  So come, Holy Spirit.  We offer this week in advance to you.  Come Jesus, we pray in your name.  Amen.

Community Prayer Requests and Praise Reports

Hi family.  This is Salvation is Mine in San Leandro, CA.  I was just listening to the February 12th podcast and heard Gigi. Oh my gosh, little one, oh, I am so, so, so, so happy for you, that you are healed in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and it got me to thinking the faith of a child is so strong and you could hear it in Gigi’s voice.  You could hear how much she loves the Lord.  You could hear how much she believed that he was going to heal her and He did.  So who are we as adults to have such doubt?  I’m talking about me with my cancer diagnosis.  I have been stressing and having panic attacks and upset and mad and angry and just a whole bunch of emotions, then here comes our sweet little Gigi just knowing that God was going to take care of her.  So who are we as adults not to have the faith of a child? A child will lead them, right?  So Gigi, thank you for leading us older ones. Thank you for believing in our Lord Jesus Christ probably a little bit more than we do sometimes.  Thank you for being a light in this darkness that we are in. We just appreciate you and we love on you and we praise God for you and we want to continue to hear your testimonies and your call ins from time to time letting us know how you are. Family, God bless you all.  Take care.  I’m going to start stepping out on bigger faith, wider faith as of today. Thank you so much.  God bless you.  Bye-bye.  

Hello DAB family.  This is Joe from Connecticut, a long time listener and first time caller.  First, I would like to remind everyone to continue our financial support of the DAB.  Without our support, there would be no DAB community, so let’s help Brian reach more and more people by supporting this great ministry as much as we can. If you haven’t made the commitment yet, pray on it and let God speak to your heart.  So l listen to the Daily Audio Bible every day and pray for those on the prayer line.  I never felt I was in a position to ask for prayer.  My family and friends are all physically healthy, so I didn’t feel worthy to call in just for my spiritual and mental health.  I’m finally recognizing that spiritual warfare we all face can be just as deadly if not more deadly than a physical illness and the evil one knows our weaknesses and never gives up, especially as we move forward into a closer relationship with God.  Now I’m coming to you, my DAB family, this incredible and amazing group of prayer warriors, to pray for me and my children, Megan, Caitlin and Ryan, that we may overcome all the spiritual warfare in our lives and rise above the lies, deceit and distractions that come into our lives every day. Please pray for my children to realize that they are perfect just the way they are, the way God created them, and that they would be less anxious about everything and be able to focus on moving forward in a positive direction and to a relationship with God.  And lastly, please pray for me and the men traveling to the Wild at Heart Advanced Conference this weekend in Colorado, that God will heal our hearts and lead us into a closer relationship with him. Thank you, DAB family.  I’m glad I finally called.  I love you.  

Hey Daily Audio Bible.  This is Billy from Montgomery.  I would like to put a prayer request out there for myself and my wife and my two boys, Billy, Natalie and Taylor and Connor, that we all come to know Jesus and God and all start listening to the Daily Audio Bible to get to know God better and to get to know Jesus better.  I have purchased the e-book of Reframe and I’m reading that now.  I would like to go back and buy the audio version of it to listen to it.  Just love listening to stuff, listening to Brian and all that.  Anyhow, I just wanted to put that prayer request out there, that we all come to know God better and Jesus better in my family and that is all.  I just want to put that prayer request out there.  I will talk to you all later.  Love you guys.  Talk to you later.  Bye.  

Hi Daily Audio Bible.  This is Lisa in Springfield, MO.  I’m a first time caller.  I just finished my first year with Daily Audio Bible and I’m so grateful to my sister Sherry for letting me know about it.  It has been a huge blessing, so thank you, Brian and Jill and staff for this ministry.  I have a prayer request.  My dear friend Christine is dying.  She has been diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease which is a degenerative brain disorder and it has given her 6-12 months to live.  She is a wonderful wife and friend and mother and grandmother and this is not what she certainly wanted, how she wanted her days on earth to end, so we’re still believing for a miracle and I thought perhaps if the Daily Audio Bible family would join in prayer, we just might see that because our God is faithful.  Everybody have a blessed day and Brian, thanks again for this wonderful ministry. God bless.  Bye-bye.  

Hi everybody.  This is Alisha calling from Kansas.  I’m calling to ask for prayer.  Today is February the 15th and on February the 11th, coming home from church Saturday night I was in a major motor vehicle accident.  If you’d like to see the pictures, please feel free to go to my Facebook Page, Alisha B.  I hit a cement wall going 60 miles an hour after a drunk driver hit another car and that car hit me, sending me going in front of four lanes of traffic without being hit by a single car and then I could hear God telling me to get out of the car which usually they tell you to stay in the car.  I got out of the car, got away from the car and my car was struck again.  I’m praising God for don’t have hardly any injuries.  It’s a miracle.  I’m just asking for prayer for quick healing and glasses.  My glasses were lost.  I’m wearing my sunglasses which are also prescription.  I thank you all so much for your prayers, for your faithfulness. I wanted to say real quick, Charles that lost his wife, the matriarch of the family, I’m praying for you.  David from Kansas, I’ve missed a few days. I’ve missed you.  Salvation is Mine, everybody, I love you all.  I’m so grateful for this ministry and for all of you. I hope you all have a blessed day. Thank you.  Bye-bye.  

Good morning Dabbers.  I’m a burning bush that will not be devoured for the glory of our Lord and King.  This morning I’m calling to pray for Reggie from Kenya, Charles from Florida and the loved missionary, Bill B., and also for Lisa’s dad Martin.  Father God, we come before you this morning.  We love you and we thank you for this family.  We thank you, God, for the faith that you’ve given us, O Lord, knowing that whatever we ask you in your name you will grant it.  Father Lord, we commit Reggie before you, Lord. God, you have his life in your hands. I pray that you will give him favor, O Lord, that you will open doors for him, doors that were shut closed, Lord. That you will lead him into the job that is fulfilling and that is going to provide for his family, in the name of Jesus.  I pray for Charles from Florida, God.  I pray that you heal his heart and comfort his family after the loss of his wife. God, I pray that you will just be with him, be closer with him, bring him closer to you during this time of her departure, Lord, and remind him that he is not alone.  I pray for missionary Bill B.  Lord, I pray for healing of his body.  I thank you that he can continue ministering even though he’s not feeling well, Lord.  I pray that in the name of Jesus.  That you will make your presence known in his life, that you will bring people around him to show him love daily and that as you’re healing his body, God, that you continue to pour into him, pour into his spirit.  I thank you for Lisa’s dad, Martin, God, and I thank you, Lord Jesus, for salvation, in the name of Jesus.  Amen. I love you guys.  Victorious Soldier, I love you and I’m thinking of you today.  God bless you.
