Deuteronomy 7:1-8:20, Luke 7:36-8:3, Psalms 69:1-18, Proverbs 12:1
Today is the 27th day of March. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It’s great to be here with you today for the next step forward as we continue to move our way through the month of March and we’re almost at the end of the month of March. And we’re moving our way through what we know as Holy Week, moving ever closer toward Resurrection Sunday also known as Easter. So, day by day, step by step we continue our journey. And we’ll take the next step forward now. We’re reading from the Common English Bible this week. Deuteronomy chapters 7 and 8 today.
Father, we thank You for another day in Your word, another step forward. Indeed, we find ourselves in the story that Jesus was telling today. We have been each forgiven so much that we couldn’t possibly name it all. And this is what we’ve been contemplating. This is what we are contemplating as we head toward Easter, how much we have been forgiven, how great Your love, how unspeakable it is, how kind You are, how much it cost, and how we have no way of earning any of this. You have been a good, kind, patient, longsuffering Father, pursuing us each of the days of our lives. And, so, we say along with the psalmist, God, in Your great and faithful love, answer us with Your certain salvation. Save us. There is no other hope but You and we put all of our hope in You. Come, Holy Spirit, we pray. In Jesus name. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
I was standing in my own strength when suddenly I fell. My enemies surrounded me and began to rejoice in my demise. The waters of diversity rose higher than my head and I found myself drowning in a sea of internal despair. The ones you had given me began losing their faith and the one I esteemed above all of others simply wandered away. All my love, life, and love of music were all gone away. And even the light of my own smile was extinguished as I started to doubt within. In fact, the only good thing left within was a faint flicker of hope that came from Your word planted deep inside a long time ago but was still very much alive. And it began to exert its own power, groanings that I couldn’t comprehend or even understand. And I began to feel and hear faint whispers of your love which gave love rise to renewed hope and faith started to grow once again. My life was passing before my eyes as I watched in fear as my enemies encircled me like vultures surrounding the carcass of a falling dear. And just as they begin to move into the kill I cried out to the Lord for the depths of my heart. The one who had been appointed to defend me, my lawyer, my advocate, my deliverer was nowhere to be found. And those who had given me were having problems of their own and could only hope and pray in faith for the best. And the one whom I esteemed above all others decided it was time to start seeing somebody else. And my children, the fruit of my own loins couldn’t care less as to what happened to me because I had never really been a part of their lives anyway. And just as I was about to close my eyes in quiet acceptance of my fate, You stepped in and answered my prayer in such a spectacular display of Your power that not only were my enemies scattered and confounded, You turned my accusers into advocates for my defense. And praise the Lord, once again, there is no way my thanksgiving could ever appropriately match your deliverance but the life you gave back to me, I now give back to you.
Hi family. It’s Shannon from Texas and I was just sitting here getting ready listening to the community prayer and I heard the woman that called in. I don’t think you left your name but you said that you were praying for me and you were also praying for somebody that was…the woman that called about a son Brian. And as you are speaking…at the very moment that you are speaking…I was texting my mom…we were texting back and forth. I thought it was interesting that it was kind of at the same time and I was saying to her…that Amen-ed to what she was telling me, that I had canceled every negative and anti-Christ spirit in the holy name of Jesus Christ and that no enemy would prevail against us, no darkness shall overtake us, mercy shall encompass us, and love shall uphold us, and that we are delivered, and we are healed, and that we shall have dominion over all the earth. And I just want to thank everyone for praying for me. You know, I have my moments of relapse into despair but I have to make sure that I don’t stay in that place because I believe that we have the power of life and death and the words that say. So, I have to call and kind of cancel that out and just know that the enemy of course wants to take me out and wants me to say that I’m, you know, distraught and in despair and, oh my God. __ know why you want me to stop and focus on darkness and despair because of going into a very oppressed place and praying for every person in there. And, of course, the enemy doesn’t want that to happen but you lose and I win and we shall prevail. And I love all of you guys. I love you guys. I’m praying for all of you.
Glory be to the Lord. Thank you everyone for being here. Thank you for having this platform. I say thank you to Brian and Jill and God and all of the Daily Audio Bible team. I would like to say a prayer for a young lady, I don’t know how old she is, but she sounded like she was young. And I really didn’t catch her name but she called in saying that she was going to fly in to see her mom who has cancer and that she had been in the cold, kind of, separation between herself and her mother for years and that this cancer, kind of, is bringing her back to her mom. So, I just want to tell you that you really stirred my heart up and I felt like I really had to pray for you. So, Lord Jesus please hear my imperfect voice. Lord God, please, Father, bless this family, bless this woman and her mother, that they may be healed and feel love overflowing between them and all the people who they touch, and that through this love, this lady’s mama’s cancer will be gone completely. And that if there’s any forgiveness that needs to be done or dealt with, that they both may have the forgiveness in their heart, one for each other, to forgive whatever their…
Hello. My name is Bob. I’m a first-time caller. This is my fourth time with the DAB and first time, obviously, with DAB C. So, fourth time through the Bible with you guys. Just wanted to call in for praise report. I put a prayer out there on the prayer all the other day for my daughter’s pregnancy, which was fine throughout most of it and at the very end turned into a high risk, yet turned out just fine. So, baby and mom are just great. And, so, I appreciate prayers answered there. I also appreciate Brian and family coming to Louisville today. Good to see you there. Thanks again for coming. It’s great to see you guys face-to-face. And, obviously, thanks to everybody who I’ve been listening to for years, Blind Tony and Slave of Jesus and too many people to mention. While that’s probably all I need to say for today. So, thanks again for prayers answered. Bob from Kentucky. Bye.
