Numbers 28:16-29:40 ~ Luke 3:23-38 ~ Psalm 62:1-12 ~ Proverbs 11:18-19

Today is the 18th day of March.  Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible.  I’m Brian.  It’s great to be here with you at the end of another of the weeks that we get to share together, 52 in all, taking us through the entire Bible in a year.  So we’re well on our way.  We’ve been reading from the Expanded Bible during this week, and it’s still this week even though it is the end of the week, so that is what we’ll do.  Numbers chapter 26, verse 52 through 28, verse 15 today.  


Father, we thank you for another week that you have been faithful to us, nourishing us through your word, through each other, through the power of your Holy Spirit and we thank you for all that you have done in and among us and we long for and have great anticipation for all that you have yet to do in the coming weeks.  So we open our hearts to you, Jesus, even as we close another week.  This relationship that we have with you and with your word is an ongoing thing that never ends and we’re very grateful.  So we thank you for your presence.  Without your presence, we are floundering and completely blind in this world.  So come Holy Spirit, lead us on the narrow path that leads to life.  Guide our steps forward, we ask.  In Jesus’ name, amen.

Community Prayer Requests and Praise Reports

Hi Daily Audio Bible family.  This is Lance in San Diego and God wanted me to call in and just encourage the woman at the end of, I think, March 14th or 15th podcast.  She didn’t leave her name, but she called to thank Stephanie and she said she was the weird one, she felt, at church and she stepped away from church and she runs to turn her phone off when the prayer requests come up.  God just wanted me to call and encourage you and share my experience and times with going to church and connecting to the people there.  What I have found works great for me is actually trying to serve as much as I can at the church.  You know, parking ministry or help sweep the floors or whatever God leads you to do. I have found that gives openings for God’s Holy Spirit to come in and me being able to bless others, not just with the physical service, but it puts you in contact with people there and helps build that family, that church family on the ground there.  If you get a word from the Lord…  You know, it’s my job, if God’s to work in my heart, just to be faithful to God and I trust God that if I say something wrong, God has the supernatural ability to transform that in the air and have that land in the person’s ears __________.  It’s just trying to be faithful to use the gifts of the Spirit and things like that. It’s not just for me, it’s to share with God’s people to give glory to God.  I just wanted to call and encourage you to try to find a church family and approach it just as a time to serve.  It’s basically our Christian good teaching and good lordship, but it’s also…

Hi there.  Good afternoon DAB family.  This is Andre from Nottingham in the UK.  It’s the afternoon of the 13th of March.  A prayer request, please, family, for my sister, Louise, mother of three and wife.  She was involved in a car accident.  What happened was the car where the children were in happened to roll down the hill when the hand brake failed and they, husband and herself, tried to stop the car. Consequently, she was knocked under the car, under the wheels and received injuries to her body, her head and so on.  She is in the hospital at the moment and the shock and the trauma of this event.  I pray God’s peace and healing in the situation. I believe it was a miracle nothing worse happened.  So I would appreciate you guys praying.  And if you want to contact me at all and see how she is doing, you can email me on AndreLee37@me.com.  I appreciate you, family.  God bless you.  Speak soon. Bye for now.  

Hey Daily Audio Bible.  This is Jeff from Virginia Tech calling today.  The Holy Spirit has been working.  I know I haven’t called in a long time, but someone recently called in and said the Holy Spirit was kind of gnawing him to call in.  I was just walking back from class and I was listening to the DAB and Brian mentioned the phone number and the Holy Spirit was telling me I should call in, so here I am.  More updates for you guys.  Just been kind of low in terms of the spirit recently.  My parents are in a tough spot right now.  They are looking at divorcing really soon, so prayers for that.  This weekend I’m co-leading a retreat with a group of friends in the __________ diocese in Virginia.  We got about 33 kids signed up.  I’ll be doing the men’s talk so I would just ask that you keep me in your prayers during this time during this weekend that they just have a great experience and that the Holy Spirit just works through us and that I might deliver an awesome talk and inspire these guys to live virtuously, to live virtuous lives for Christ.  Just prayer for the Newman Community, the Catholic Campus Ministry of Virginia Tech. Prayer for everyone who has fallen out of the church.  So keep me in your prayers, guys.  I’ll be praying for you as well.  This is Jeff from Virginia Tech signing off.  See ya.  

Hey DAB family.  This is Byron out in Florida, Abiding in Him.  Shout-out to my brother Jordan in Michigan.  So glad you have chosen to extend the 30-day __________ challenge to a full 60 days.  I’m looking forward to every single one of those calls and I’m so excited about this new direction that your life has been taking, man.  I’m glad you’re inviting us along with it.  When you called you had thanked me for my transparency concerning a previous suicide attempt and then the second transparency I have to clarify is that wasn’t me.  That is not my story.  But my heart goes out to every single one of you in the community, some of you I’m very close to, who struggle with those dark thoughts and I want to let you guys know that every day that you wake up and decide to live that day is pure worship to God who made you.  Pure worship to the God that gave you that day and I thank all of you who choose to do that, despite how you may feel.  And my heart goes out to all of you.  God loves you so very dearly.  Jordan, I love you, man.  I want you to reach out to me.  My email is ClearSkyBlue@hotmail.com.  Hit me up with a preview of your next rhyme.  And that goes out to anybody who wants to reach out.  That email is available.  Just write me and I’ll write you back.  I love you all.  Talk to you later.  

Hello Daily Audio Bible family.  This is Valerie calling from Dallas, TX.  This is my first time calling in.  I need the family to stand in the gap.  Satan is destroying my family.  There is no fellowship.  There is no respect.  There is no communication of love between me and my four adult children.  Satan took the opportunity through the pain of grief through seeing their father suddenly get sick and die and then within months also my children have endured the pain of seeing me divorce a stepfather whom they also love.  Satan has __________ my every word, my every action, my every deed and twisted it that my children receive it as an attack, as judgment, as daggers in their heart. I have to turn this over to God. Satan cannot have the victory. His weapons are the same, to separate in deception and then to steal, kill and destroy.  I am asking you to pray that he no longer has the victory in my family.  Thank you.

Hi, this is Nicki from North Vancouver and I’ve been listening to Daily Audio Bible for about six years and it’s just awesome.  I’m completely addicted.  This is my first time calling and I’m calling for prayer for our 8-year-old grandson.  His name is Leif.  He is a bright little guy, but his behavior at school is terrible and he has been having problems.  He is very strong-willed and doesn’t want to do what the teacher wants him to do always. When he cooperates, he is wonderful and she adores him, but oh, when he has a meltdown it’s horrible.  Could you please pray that his behavior will improve? He’s already been suspended once and, anyway, we just need the Lord’s intervention so much.  His dad, who is our son, is not serving the Lord and I’m not sure that his mother has ever known the Lord, so please pray for the family’s salvation as well.  Mostly my call is for our grandson, Leif, and that he will respect authority and behave appropriately.  So thank you so much everyone and I pray along with all of your requests also. Thanks.  Bye-bye.
