1 Samuel 24:1-24:44, John 10:22-42, Psalms 116:1-19, Proverbs 15:20-21
Today is May 19th. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It’s great to be here with you today as we’ve reached the conclusion of another of our weeks together. And if you believe it, we’ve been at this for about 20 weeks now this year. So, we are moving along and we’ll dive back in, picking up where we left off yesterday. And that is in 1 Samuel. And we have been watching King Saul’s animosity grow over David and his attempts to snuff David out of the story. And so we pick that up. 1 Samuel chapter 24 and 25 today. And we’ve been reading from the Christian Standard Bible this week, which is what we’ll do today and we’ll switch to something else tomorrow. But for now, 1 Samuel chapter 24.
Father, we thank You for Your Word. We thank You for another week. We thank You that day by day turns into week by week turns into month by month and we move our way through the Scriptures. Each and every day You’re changing us through the stories and the people’s lives that we find in the Scriptures because we’re finding our own hearts in the Scriptures and we thank You for this gift. We worship You for what You have done in our lives through Your words and we long expectantly for what You will continue to do in our lives as we continue this journey through Your Word. Come Holy Spirit, we pray. In Jesus name we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Good day Daily Audio Bible family. This is John calling from Bethlehem Pennsylvania, well, I’m really over in New Jersey and Hampton today at my place of employ, but that’s beside the point. It’s great to be with you guys. Brian and Jill thank you for your ministry. Thank you family. Thank you SarahJane, thank you Mike Green and for the volunteers that help out behind the scenes. Family, would you join me in prayer today? Our church family lost a true servant of Christ yesterday. The gentleman’s name is Al, last name is Bobb and he’s a tremendous servant of Jesus Christ and we’re forever grateful for everything that he did. He volunteered at the church and was tragically entered and died on the church property yesterday. He is loved by so many people and is going to be so missed. So, if you’d join me in praying for Al, I’d greatly appreciate that. Heavenly father, we thank You for the gift of life and the gift of relationship with You. We thank You for designing our purpose and then bringing us into being to fulfill our purpose, Your will, and bring You glory father. We celebrate and will truly miss our brother Al, Father, but he is Your son and You’ve called him to be with You now. No matter what the circumstances are Father God or the situation, we praise You and honor You and ask Your Holy Spirit to bring strength courage, patience, and endurance, peace, and joy to Al’s family, those closest to him and his Life Church family. Jesus, we invite You into this and all things. We ask this in Your precious and mighty name. Amen.
Hey everybody. This is Pelham from Birmingham. I’m calling in, it’s been a little while since I’ve called in. I am at a place where I’m…confused. I don’t know what’s going to happen next and I don’t know what to do. It seems impossible to me and I am confessing that I’m scared and I don’t know why because I know I’m not supposed to feel it. I know the truth. I know what’s happening. I know that it’s good. I know that He is working it for my good but it’s so scary. It’s like the storms have to get scarier to scare me to make me stronger and I’m going through it right now with my family. All these things are taken care of in Jesus’ name. Everything is happening as it supposed to; however, I have to fight. And the verse of the day just popped up on my phone, ‘if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves’, that just popped up on the screen. You know the rest of that Scripture. I need prayer to stay focused on what I know in my heart and just to not fear but to praise him in the storm, no matter how scary it looks, no matter how hard it looks, I’m supposed to stand up next to him in that boat. When that storm is coming and let the rain hit me in the face and watch the lightning with dad and say, wow, because he’s in control. Thanks Blind Tony.
Hi DAB family this is Julie from Ohio __. I really need your prayers. I am originally from Ukraine. My family, my parents are still there and I’m their only child and I just found out that my mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Preliminarily at stage II but she still has to go through all the tests. Now I have family in __ here. I just need your prayers for my mom who is not really a Christian, who doesn’t rely on God for everything. And I am just at a loss as to how I can help her being so far away. And medicine in Ukraine is, unfortunately, not as good as the US, not too bad but it’s not as good. And just please pray for wisdom for the doctors, for the best technology available to be able to do his work there for God’s miracle, for guidance for wisdom for me as to what to do and how to help support my mom and my dad. I really, really need your prayers family. Thank you so much. Love you. Bye.
Hello from beautiful Cincinnati Ohio. This is Daniel Johnson Junior and I just was calling to say how grateful I am that this program exists, that we have this community that exists all around the world, people from Australia, people from Europe, people from Asia, people calling from South America, North America, all over the world. So grateful for this and grateful to all that God has been doing. I’ve been listening to the Daily Audio Bible since June 2009 and haven’t really missed a day since. And, so, I just praise God for what he’s been able to do through all of this. And I just want to pray to God here with me now…invite you to pray to God with me. Heavenly father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, thank You so very much God for being such an integral part of all of our lives. You know all of our needs even before we speak them. And I am so grateful for all of Your great forgiveness. Thank You so much Jesus for shedding Your blood, that we may have the opportunity to partake of a relationship with God to be restored in our lives, to have healing, true healing. Thank You so much God for all that You’ve done in our relationships in families. Thank You for restoring our marriages, for restoring our broken relationships with kids. Thank You so much for providing for all of our needs physically, financially, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Thank You so much for our leaders who govern over all of us. Lord I know how, I know exactly what You’re doing and I trust in You and I thank You so much for taking good care of us. In Jesus name. Amen. From beautiful Cincinnati Ohio this is Daniel Johnson Junior. Make it a great day. God bless.
