Deuteronomy 32:28-52 ~ Luke 12:35-59 ~ Psalm 78:56-64 ~ Proverbs 12:24
Today is the 8th day of April. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It’s great to be here with you on this beautiful day. Coming to you once again from the More Gathering for Women in the mountains just outside of Atlanta, North Georgia where really beautiful things are happening. So today will be our last full day together at the conference and then part of tomorrow before everyone begins to head home. No matter how many times we do this, it feels like we’ve been here a week already, a lot of ground gets covered, so we thank you for your continued prayers as we continue forward on the journey of the More Gathering.
So here we are at the end of another of our weeks together and they do just keep kind of moving systematically forward as we continue moving systematically forward in the scriptures. So we’ve been reading from the New International Version this week. We’ll continue that today, Deuteronomy chapter 32, verse 28 through 52, and Moses is in the middle of teaching the people a song, a song of their history, a song of their story, something that they are to remember and pass along long after he’s gone, which for us is going to be very soon. So let’s dive into the book of Deuteronomy.
Father, we thank you for another week in your word and even as we approach the end of Moses’ life in the book of Deuteronomy, even as we prepare to end the giving of the law and move forward in the story, we invite you to seal these things in our hearts so at the time of your choosing they will come back and remind us that your word will be a living reminder of who you are and who we are and where we are headed. So we invite your Holy Spirit to come and plant the words spoken today deep in our hearts. We ask in the name of Jesus, amen.
Www.DailyAudioBible.com, it’s the website. It’s home base. It’s where you find out what is going on around here and yep, it’s the More Gathering that is going on and so today is a full day and then half day tomorrow and then we’ll conclude the More Gathering for Women for 2017. It has already been amazing. Some real good, deep work was done yesterday and the Holy Spirit came for all of us. We expect no less today. We covet your prayers and ask for the entire Daily Audio Bible community to pray over the women that are in attendance, the hearts, the hearts of the team, the stamina and strength of the team. There are a lot of moving parts and so this canopy of prayer that gets raised over this each year is felt, and that is not an exaggeration. It is felt that you are praying for these beautiful, beautiful princesses of the kingdom of God. It is something we don’t take for granted and is certainly not something that we ignore, so thank you for your prayers.
The other thing that I’ve been talking about is the fact that we will be going back to the land of the Bible in early 2018, February 19 through March 4 to be specific. Yeah, even as we’re reading today the book of Deuteronomy about the desert of Zin and the place where Moses will retreat to die and move away from the children of Israel and as they move forward across the Jordan, these are places that we see. I mean, Mount Nebo where Moses was instructed to climb and where he would pass away, that mountain is real. It is on the other side of the Jordan, obviously, where the children of Israel are and that is modern day Jordan. The other side of the Jordan River where all of what we’re reading is taking place, that is in the country of Jordan now and you can see that mountain. The desert of Zin crosses the Jordan River and into modern day Israel as well. These are places that we get to see. These stories begin to come to life. So if you’ve been hearing the Daily Audio Bible trips over the years and you’re like, ‘man, I want to go,’ then come along. We look forward to seeing you. Or if it is just something that you’ve always wanted to do, this pilgrimage will immerse you in the Bible story itself and we find our place in the story. So you can check all of that out at www.DailyAudioBible.com. There is a little banner for it in the Initiatives section. You can also visit www.DailyAudioBibleIsrael.com. That will take you there as well, and we’ll look forward to that.

Community Prayer Requests and Praise Reports
Good morning all listeners. Good morning Brian. This is Alberta again from Harlow, Essex in the UK. I just wanted to pray for the More Gathering which is taking place today, I believe. Merciful Father, to you be all the glory as the source of all that we are. Father, you’ve already poured into this gathering your wisdom __________. I pray that as your children assemble in your name, that your spirit is also poured into them to allow the release of all negative and destructive and unproductive things in their lives. Father, restore all those who have been broken in one way or another and may they all come away with the fulfillment in their hearts, minds and souls. In Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
Hi Daily Audio Bible family. My name is Lyndsey. I’ve been listening for about four years, but this is my first time calling. I became a Christian at age six but truly became a follower of Christ about five years ago. My husband and I have been together for 12 years. He is not a Christian and I’m requesting prayer for his salvation today. He struggles very much with depression and he is an alcoholic as well as addicted to his prescription medication. He suffered terrible abuse as a child and his father was in jail most of his childhood until his 20s. He does have a wonderful Christian mother, though, thank goodness. Despite all of his problems, he is a great father. We have two young children. I can’t imagine the father he would be with Christ in his heart. He rarely goes to church with us, but has been going for children’s performances and Easter for the past few years. It has been about a year now since he’s been and now he is saying he probably won’t go on Easter. It’s just been really disappointing and upsetting for me. For many months he seemed to make some progress and seemed to be thinking about Jesus and then it seems to have stopped. I want him out of this misery. I __________ of our family serving the Lord together and I just want you guys to pray for his salvation so that we’ll spend eternity together and we can just all worship together and serve the Lord together. Thank you guys so much. Bye-bye.
Hi Daily Audio Bible. This is a first-time caller and short listener. I’ve been listening for about half a year and felt moved today to call. Actually, I felt moved to call a couple days ago, but __________ the time. On April 3rd I heard an also new listener call in. She said she had been listening since January. I didn’t catch your name but you mentioned prayer request for the man in your life who doesn’t desire a relationship with God. I just wanted to extend some encouragement and prayer to you. I understand exactly what you’re going through. The woman who I have in my life, she also is struggling on developing a relationship with God. I just want to let you know that God will reward your faith that you’ve had to call in and extend reach to this community for us to pray for you. He’ll honor that. Keep living faithfully to Christ and keep praying faithfully to God on this and he’ll work miracles in life. The person I’m with right now, she isn’t 100% devoted, but there has been obvious work in her life through the prayers of me and my family and friends on her and she’s been coming to church and reading the Bible and praying with me actually and developing in her spiritual walk and I want to extend that encouragement to you to know that Jesus is there and he is enough to work in this. Thank you for calling in because I’ve been wanting to call in on various occasions, but I haven’t had the courage to call in even though it is just a phone call. I was inspired that you were able to call in and you had the courage to do that, so thank you. Let you know that I’m praying for you. Thanks to everyone else listening and praise. You guys are all wonderful. I listen every day at work. It’s awesome.
Welcome to Georgia. This is Cynthia in Marietta. It is about 6 a.m. on April 6th and the More Conference starts today. I wish I could be at the Atlanta airport with __________ and hugs, but instead I just want you all to know that all of us in the Dabber family are covering you in prayer. We’ve had horrible thunderstorms here for two days and I’ve listened to the thunder I’ve just thought what horrible spiritual warfare there has been leading up to this conference. I know that the closer it gets, and even today, there is just going to be so much battle going on, but Satan doesn’t know what he has coming when you have a family this large that is coming before the Lord and asking for victory. I know he is going to be defeated. So ladies, we are so excited, I am, that you’re going to have a wonderful weekend with fellowship and the Lord is just going to soften your heart and teach you and do some healing in the broken places. Brian and Jill and the whole team, we’re praying for you as well, that God will give you wisdom and it is just, again, I just know it’s going to be a wonderful weekend and all of us are looking forward to hearing the testimonies and just amazing things that God does this weekend. I love you all. Give you all hugs across the miles. Bye.
Hey family, this is Sam in Northern California. So the More Conference is starting today and it’s a women’s conference, right? The men are not a part of that, but I just want to encourage the men, us, as we send off the ladies to the More Conference. So Heavenly Father, I just pray for the men, Lord Jesus, Father, who are at home waiting to receive their wives and their significant others as they return from the More Conference. Those women are coming back full of the Holy Spirit, enlightened, regenerated, and I just pray that us men will create an environment so those women can come back and grow in that environment. We can create an environment where we stagnate their growth or what they came back with but I just pray that us men, we do the right thing and we prepare an environment for them so they can grow, they can germinate and bring forth fruit from what they gather from the More Conference. This I pray in Jesus’ name, amen. Hey Pelham, what’s going on, man? How you doing? Alright, bye family.
Hello Daily Audio Bible family. I can barely say audio right there. God, I can’t talk today. God bless you all. Brian and Jill, again thank you for the opportunity to be able to pray for others here and give praise to God as well and for all you do. I just wanted to let everybody know that is in attendance at the More Conference and for everybody that is praying for those at the More Gathering and Conference, that I too am praying for you. I’m praying for strength and courage and healing and openness and a heart just filled with the grace of God and that you’re able to allow the presence of the Holy Spirit to fill just every part of your being, every pore in your skin, so you’re just drenched and that it is such a great experience. I also wanted to let Stan from Maryland know who called in on the 3rd of April that I’m really thankful for you calling in and for you talking about your humanity and how you’re so deeply moved and thankful for the Daily Audio Bible and through the Daily Prayer. I love the Daily Prayer myself as well. It’s a great resource that is available from the Daily Audio Bible. If you’re not familiar with it, folks, I would suggest that you check it out. I would highly recommend it. Wendy, I believe it is, from California, I’m praying for you. You called in and said you’re having difficulty with your husband, that he is bipolar and that he has been playing games with your emotions and that it has been a long journey and you’re struggling with finances. I’m praying for you. I’m praying for health and healing that only God can provide through Jesus Christ. And also praying that you’re financial health is taken care of. God bless you. I’ll be calling back in.
