2 Chronicles 33:14-34:33, Romans 16:8-27 , Psalms 26:1-12, Proverbs 20:19
Today is the 3rd day of August. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian and it is a pleasure to be here with you today as we get fully moved into this brand-new month and through this week together. And this week we’re reading from the New English Translation. So, we’ll; pick up where we left off yesterday. 2 Chronicles chapter 33 verse 14 through 34 verse 33.
Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for the opportunity to read of King Josiah today in 2 Chronicles and his response to discovering how far the people had drifted away from you. His response was to completely humble himself before you, and then get about the work of cleaning up. And Holy Spirit, come into that. We realize that we also must take inventory of our own lives and realize the places that we’ve drifted away from our story with you and we realize that serious change that that begins by recognizing what’s happening and being able to name it and call it out loud, what’s happening. And then repentance, changing our minds, which then changes our ways. And, so, we invite your Holy Spirit into that as we contemplate it today. Come Jesus we pray in your precious name. Amen.
dailyaudiobible.com is the website, its home base, it’s where you find out what’s going on around here.
And we have another app update that has been released. So, be sure to update. This particular update fixes a pretty big bug in the android world. If you have a more modern android phone you have the Daily Audio Bible app, but it kind of stops on you, that is due to a certain way that the platform manages the battery resources. And it’s a bit different in newer phones. That issue has been addressed. So, be sure to update. This new version is 1.0.12. And for android and iOS devices, we’ve changed the user interface a little bit so that you don’t have to kind of drill into a month to see that month. When you update, you’ll be able to scroll back all the way to the beginning of the year. Know, you can, you can filter however you like, and you’ll see that kind of where you used to see the month. And then to the right of that…it’s hard to…it’s hard to do this just with the words and not be able to show you…to the right of that filtering area is three little dots and that’s the settings for how you want to filter. So now you’ll be able to see, you know, you’ll be able to filter out just the episodes that you’ve favorited this year or just the episodes that you’ve taken notes and you have some notes in, just some of those kind of controls have been implemented into the interface. So, we continue to make progress. This is being worked on just about every single day. And we knew when we came out with 1.0 that there was going to be additional stability and work to do and we have been working on it all year. But that’s how…that’s how it works when you build something new and launch it. So, be sure to update your Daily Audio Bible app to be up-to-date with the latest fixes and features. And you can download that now your app store.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi neighbors. It’s Lisa the Encourager. I just wanted to call in tonight and pray for everyone. Most especially those that are going through difficult battles right now, whether that’s depression or anxiety or you have somebody in your family that’s close to you that has addiction problems. I know that sometimes when you’re not the one, but you’re always carrying the burden of others. That can be a very difficult and heavy load to carry. So, I am reaching out to you now and letting you know that I’m praying for you. And I just want you to know that God loves you and He cares about you. And just, when you do your prayers, or when I do my prayers, lately if I’m going through something like that, I’ve been speaking it out loud to God and just really asking for him to work on my behalf out loud. And, so, I feel like he responded to me in a special way when I really made a point to speak it out loud, for me anyways. So, anyways I just want to let you know that I’m praying for you. So, let’s pray. Dear Lord, I pray for each one of the individuals that are going through difficult battles in their families or with their loved ones, whether that’s an alcohol problem, an abuse problem, an addiction problem, whether it’s a teenager, a spouse, a loved one. I just pray for the one that’s holding it altogether, that’s just trying to keep their head above water God, that You would just reach out from heaven and give them the blessings that they need in their lives right now. I pray God that You will anoint them with your love…

Hey DABbers. This is Gavin __ both in Alabama. First off, Pelham, I just heard your praise report. I’d like flipped out of my chair with joy when I heard that man. Congratulations and praise be the Lord to your wife coming home to you. DABbers, if I could ask for prayer or my marriage still. It’s been almost a year now since my wife left and things rock back and forth. I will think conversation is getting better and then it just gets completely shut down again. If I could just ask you all to pray for open doors and just wisdom and guidance on what we are supposed to do because right now I’m not really sure what to do. Thanks DABbers. Love you. Bye.
