2 Kings 13:1-14:29, Acts 18:22-19:12, Psalms 146:1-10, Proverbs 18:2-3
Today is the 28th day of June. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It’s great to be here with you today. As we prepare to take the next step forward. And we’ve taken quite a few steps and they have led us to this point and we’ll keep taking steps until we get all the way to the end of the year and the end of the Bible. We’re reading from the God’s word translation this week. And the next step is the one after the last step. So, we’ll pick up where we left off yesterday. Second Kings chapter 13 and 14.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for the thread that it has become in our lives, the constant that is in our days, leading us, directing us, transforming us, and counseling us. And we take the Council that we found in the Proverbs today, not to just talk to hear ourselves talk, not to just have an opinion about everything, that that is actually foolish. Come Holy Spirit into that. Help us to be people that are thoughtful before we speak. In Jesus’ name we ask. Amen.
dailyaudiobible.com is the website, its home base, it’s where you find out what’s going on around here.
And it’s the Daily Audio Bible long walk that’s coming up on the calendar. That’s next. And that takes place on 7th of July, which is a week from this Saturday. And it’s a day…it’s just little tradition we have around here. We’ve been doing it for over a decade now. Every 7th of July we just all go somewhere beautiful. All of us who can carve out a few hours or a whole day to go for a long walk to disrupt the normal flow of things and go somewhere beautiful and just listen, listen to nature, talk to God, be uninterrupted, be unhurried, and be unhurried in his response, listening, walking with him. And we do this, obviously, individually, because we’re all over the world but what makes this a community experience is that we just say, wherever you go, whatever you do, capture it, capture it for yourself by taking a picture or little video or whatever. And you can post that back to the daily Audio Bible Facebook page, facebook.com/dailyaudiobible, and then we get to participate by just looking into these little windows, these little pictures that we’ve taken and be in each other’s long walk. And it’s a beautiful thing. So, make plans for that on the 7th of July. It’s a Saturday this year. It’s not obviously always a Saturday, but this year it is, which makes it simpler for our schedules. So, plan to participate in the Daily Audio Bible long walk this year. If you’ve done it for years, then you’re looking forward to it as I am. If this is your first year even considering it, then, well, think about it. What good would it do for your soul to take a day out of your crazy schedule and walk with God? What might that mean to your inner life, where the anxieties may be mounting? What would it be to release all of that, talk at all through with God? So, that’s the Daily Audio Bible long walk.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hey, what’s up everybody? It’s Miguel from Santa Rosa. Psalm 94:9 says, He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He formed the eye, does he not see? This word has been placed on my heart over the past several community prayer lines as I hear so many prayers come in, such a variety of things that we are all struggling with. And I believe that one of the biggest lies that can be placed out there from the enemy is a lie that your alone, that nobody hears you, especially for those that call in a prayer request and don’t necessarily hear somebody call in to pray for them. I want to encourage you. You are heard. You are heard and not just by people but by God. He who planted your very ear, does He not hear you? He who formed your eyes, does He not see you?. See, you are not alone. You are heard. Your prayers are heard and I can’t pretend like I know every single struggle out there, that I know what it’s like to walk through what you’re walking through, but we’re created by the same God. He loves you and He hears you and there will come a day when every effect of sin is wiped away, every pain, every suffering. Be blessed brother and sister. You are heard. You are seen. You are loved.
Hi everyone. It’s Karen in St. Louis. Bridget, my sister in New York, I am just grieving with you. I just heard your phone call. I’m gonna to pray. Father God, gosh, we live in such a broken, broken world and I just sometimes…sometimes I just pray come quickly, come quickly Jesus. Lord, I just want to lift up Bridget and her daughter to you and her whole family and this little two-year-old that is left behind Father God. I just pray that you are ministering angels would be about them, that they would sense the prayers of the saints lifting them up, that they would be buoyed and lifted up high on Eagles wings above all of this. I pray against sending PTSG for Bridget’s daughter. I pray that this would draw her closer to you Lord, that she would cling tightly to you, that she would walk with the Lord because you are the Father…
This is Candace from Oregon calling in for Pelham who is the parent with Molly and husband of Molly. Thank you for calling. Thank you for crying out to us but more importantly to Jesus. There is just nothing, well, very few things in life that are more satisfying than marriage. And you know that but now you know, of course, and have also known that there is very few things that are this difficult. And marriage is…it’s impossible except by the Holy Spirit, the power of our Lord. And it was His idea that He alone can make it happen. So…we’re…please family…come around Pelham with me and let’s pray. Let’s pray for a miracle. Lord thank You for our brother. Thank You that he knows that when he’s at his most desperate point he needs to look to You, that You are his hope and his salvation and You are Molly’s hope and salvation and their child as well. And I pray Lord that You will break all the ploys of the enemy, that You will break these things down in the name of Jesus, that Your love will come into this situation in the most beautiful unexpected ways. Please Lord, we know that just when it looks impossible…it is impossible for any one of us…You alone, you alone can take any two people and translate between them. Sometimes we feel like we’re speaking a foreign language we try to talk to each other. Holy Spirit, come and translate. Help them to actually hear each other. We pray these things in Jesus name. Amen.
DAB family. I want to pray for Keisha. Lord, Keisha reached out to You through the community because she’s been feeling alone, she is concerned about her weight that she gained, and depression and said that she had a generational curse of depression. She’s concerned about her marriage and many other things. And Lord I just ask you to reach into your daughter’s heart and let her know without a doubt that she is loved by You and speak to her in a way that only she can understand so she can know he is not alone and never alone, that when the Lord Jesus died on the cross, all curses were broken and that the evil one cannot lay his hand on us and that her mind can be freed to realize who she completely is in Your eyes, the only eyes the count. Keisha is a princess. She is royalty Lord. And one day her outsides will match her insides and she will shine like the stars of heaven Lord. Until then Lord, purify her mind, purify her heart and give her peace and let her know that she is loved beyond the green and You are making her into something more beautiful that could ever be described. We thank You Lord that You do the same with all of us. Speak to us sister Keisha in a special way. In Jesus name.
