Today is the 28th day of July. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is a pleasure and an honor to be here with you today as we move into the close of another one of our weeks together.  And this week we have read from the New Living Translation, which is what we’ll do today. And of course, we’ll be picking up where we left off yesterday. 2 Chronicles 21:1-23:21 today.


Father, we thank You for another week. We look back over the weeks and we see Your faithfulness to us day by day, step by step, week by week, month by month. And each day that we come back here to allow Your word to come into our lives and wash over us, we are continually, continually reminded of Your faithfulness in our lives. So we thank You, God, for this week. And we look forward with great anticipation to all that You will say and do in our lives in the week ahead. Come, Holy Spirit, we pray. In Jesus name, we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:

Candace in Oregon, Pastor Gene, Cherry Chase, Markus, Viv in Canada, Ardenia and everyone else who heard my call last week, I want to thank you for your prayers and I tell you I am feeling a renewed Spirit. I am feeling that God is working in me through circumstances, through this community. But I want to let you all know that I am praying for you all and I just want to say, Lee in New Jersey, you have been talking about anger. And, you know, I’m like, this is his thing, this is what he’s dealing with but let me tell you, I am realizing too that I am very angry. I am very angry about what’s going on in the world. I’m very angry about just certain situations and things in my life. And on September 26th of last year, Brian had a message on anger and it was don’t allow anger to rage inside you. Let all bitterness and karma and wrath go. Be the best version of God, moment by moment being remade in his image. Hold this to be true and not false. Give no opportunity to the devil. Help us speak with grace, mercy, and kindness. Release bitterness. I am releasing this over our entire DAB family. I know that God is still on the throne. We walk by faith, not by sight. And we’re two or more are in agreement, ask and it will be given to you. These are things that I am relying on. These are Scriptures that I am going back to. And I just want to let you all know that while I may not sound like myself while I am, you know, struggling, as many of you are struggling, I am singing the praises and counting my blessings and thanking God for changing things in my favor and I am speaking it for all of you to. I love you DAB family, Brian and Jill, everyone behind the scenes. Cheers. Asia in Munich.

Hey Daily Audio Bible family. I’m a first time caller but I’ve been listening for a couple of years now. And I just…I need some prayer for…I have a wedding coming up but I’m missing a lot of joy for that’s supposed to come with the family and everything. I just…I want some prayer and some…some just reassurance that all the stress will be gone after the wedding and everything but it’s…it’s really just being able to sit with my family and discuss stuff without everybody being so stressed about what they think is best for the wedding. And I just ask that you guys pray for me, that there can be peace in __ that I’m in and that there can be a lot more agreement when we bring up matters due to the wedding. And I thank you for listening to me and being able to listen to you guys and your prayers. It’s always so comforting every single day. Love you guys. Bye.

Hello Daily Audio Bible family. This is Divina from Ohio. I am calling to ask for prayers for my family. My dad unexpectedly, it was the end of May, I meant to call in way sooner but if you could keep my family lifted up in prayer, especially my mom. And also if you can pray for her she’s ill. She has her stage IV cancer and she’s tired. It’s not going away…if anything it’s getting worse. So, if you guys could keep her lifted in prayer. And also I ask you to pray for my friend’s father who is in the hospital. His name is Robert James Alexander. It’s not looking too good for him. He has multiple things wrong with him. So, if you can keep him lifted in prayer. Pray for me. I’m praying for all of you guys. I listen every day. So, I want to thank everyone, you know, for just coming together and just being in the family that a lot of us don’t have. God bless you all. Love you all. It’s July the 24th. You guys have a good night. Take care.

Hi there, this is Judith from the UK. This is the 25th of July. I just heard Brian talking about his son, Ezekiel, which I loved hearing about. It inspired me to call in again. I called in before about my adopted younger brother whose name I can’t say because of security reasons. He has a lot of needs. He has special needs in terms of learning difficulties and disabilities and he also has autism and fetal alcohol syndrome and also ADHD. So, several things going on because of his past and also the trauma that he’s experienced as a young child and baby that effect’s him even now. He’s 11. I’m sorry, he’s 13. Anyway, I called before. He has issues around the school he goes to and my parents want to move him but because the way things are in the UK, where the state funds things, it’s very difficult to move. And doing things privately is impossible because it’s so expensive. Basically, please be praying for him. I was with him in the past in the car a couple weeks ago. He got really upset and was saying how no one can help me, even Jesus can’t help me. He has given his life to the Lord and obviously his understanding is limited because of his needs but I do believe God can intervene for him in himself and for my parents because they really need help. It’s becoming unmanageable. They don’t how to manage his needs. He kind of knows they don’t know how to manage his needs. And, so, it feels out of control. And they have been in contact with multiple people so they do have things in the pipeline but it’s just slow and difficult and they’re in contact with solicitor now to see if they can do some stuff with the, what we call the local authorities, the part of the government there that helps with funding. So, he’s specialized to help them deal with what might come up in that area. So, please be praying for wisdom…
