Nehemiah 3:15-5:15 , 1 Corinthians 7:25-40 , Psalms 32:1-11 , Proverbs 21:5-7
Today is the 12th day of August. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It’s great to be here with you today as we cross the threshold into a brand-new, shiny, sparkly new week that nothing has happened yet. And we’re stepping into it and although we don’t know everything that will happen this week we do know that our choices will add up to be what this week looked like. And, so, we’re out in front of them right now and we can choose to walk with God, which is what this the rhythm of the Scripture is all about, which why we come around the global campfire every day. So, we’re in a new week. We’ll read from the Good News Translation this week and we’ll pick up where we left off, Nehemiah chapter 3 verse 15 to 5 verse 13 today.
Father, we thank You for this new threshold, this new week that we have just stepped into and we thank You. We thank You for the message that we find in Nehemiah, simply by watching his story, watching the way that he interacts and the way that he keeps his purpose clearly before him. And Father, we ask that You keep our purpose clearly before us as we walk through this week, guided by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Come Holy Spirit we pray. We love You, we worship You, we invite You, we need You. And, so, we open ourselves fully to Your guidance and leadership. Come Jesus we pray. In Your mighty name, we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Good morning Daily Audio Bible. This is Terry the Trucker. I want to say good morning to Brian and Jill and all the crew as I cruise through Nashville this morning. It’s 615, Thursday morning. I want to thank everyone for the continued prayers. I’m 90 something days drug-free. I still have a control issue with alcohol. Not near as bad as it was but I still have an issue with that. I want to call and tell everybody that I’m praying for you and was praying going through Nashville this morning. And it’s really increased my faith, my prayer life, having an opportunity to be able to pray for everyone and their needs. It’s an honor to be able to. You know, just when I think that nobody’s praying for me somebody calls in and says, I’m praying for you Terry the Trucker. It brings joy to my heart knowing I’m being prayed for. I’m heading home to Texas to spend the night and head back out. I’ll continue to pray and to continue to lift each and every one of you up to the Lord. You all have a blessed day.
Hey family. This is Tim in Tampa. I just want to lift up Angel in California. She’s having brain surgery and I just heard her request this morning. Father, we just lift our sister angel before You in Jesus name. And Lord I know that You are able to guide the surgeons. And Lord I pray that You would even just to something miraculous, so that when they get in there they do find that there is really nothing they need to do that’s serious. I just thank You so much for touching Angel and for helping her to get through this situation Lord. And just…we want to hear about full healing in Jesus name. And we just thank You for that Lord. I would just ask that You would also pray for me. I am a consultant, a businessman and sometimes it just gets…you kind of wonder what’s going on. I just cannot do this on my own. I give this whole business to the Lord every day. And just pray for me that I would find favor. It can get discouraging at times. And then sometimes there are great victories. It’s just kind of up and down. So, if you think about me here when you’re out and about doing your stuff, just let me up and just ask that the Lord would continue to guide this whole situation here and help me out. All right. Thanks a lot. You will have a great day. Take care.
Hi DAB family this is __ from the UK. This is a praise report and a prayer request. I’m asking for a prayer request for my friend Kim whose dad has been dying from cancer. They’ve given him a terminal illness and he’s only got maybe two months to live. He doesn’t know Christ but he has taken his granddaughter to church on multiple occasions. My friend doesn’t know Christ either and it would be wonderful for this to be used as an example to show God’s glory with a miraculous healing, which is __ we’re believing in. And a prayer for my friend Jenny whose father only died the other week. And is struggling with her life as she was very close to him. And he was also __. So, I ask for prayer for both of them. I’d also like to give a praise report for my daughter Jesmond. She’s still getting closer to the Lord and He has blessed her with her own flat and in a home that she is __. She’s really blessed and __ at work and so much more. So, thank you for your prayers and I ask you to continue praying. I keep praying for you all and listening to you all. I’m about a month and ½ behind the Daily Audio Bible but I still keep praying for the people that I listen to. So, you’re still getting prayed for now. __ the prayer requests. Thank you family. Bye-bye.
This is Lori from North Carolina, a first time caller. Today is Thursday, August 9th. I’m calling in for Angel from California who’s having brain surgery on Friday. I just wanted to share my story with you. I will be 57 years old next month but when I was 20 I lived in California and was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. I underwent surgery but it turned out that the tumor was so tangled in my speech center that it couldn’t be removed. So, the surgeon just took a biopsy of the tumor, closed me back up, and set me up with hospice because I deemed terminal. But in the meantime, as I was preparing to die, the tumor sample was tested in the hospital and then sent to several labs around the country, but each time the results came back that the tumor was benign. I was kind of __. So, I underwent radiation to shrink the tumor because it was putting pressure on my brain and I had been healthy ever since. 37 years and counting. My surgeon wrote in my patient notes that there was no earthly explanation for this outcome and there wasn’t one. There was a divine explanation. The Saints were praying for me and the Lord healed me. So, to bring this story full circle, God had a beautiful surprise in store. Several years later I became one of the first DJs on K Love radio and ended up marrying one of my listeners. God brought the love of my life to be through my voice and I had a speech center in my brain where a tumor had once threatened my life. Now that’s redemption and our Father God is amazing. So, I’m praying for you Angel and I’m already praising God for your miracle outcome that no tumor will be found in you. By Jesus finished work on the cross you are just as healed as you are saved. By his stripes you were healed you are healed and you will be continually healed. And I can’t wait to hear your beautiful testimony my dear sister.
