Today is the 10th day of February. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and here we are, we reach out together and twist the knob, swing wide the gates, and walk into a shiny, sparkly new week together as we continue our journey that, day by day, will lead us…well…will lead us week by week and then week by week will lead us month by month through the entire Bible this year. And what a journey it has already been. So, we’re in a brand-new week, we’ll read from a new translation, this week the Contemporary English Version. And we’re on the same path, so we’ll pick up where we left off yesterday. Exodus chapter 30 verse 11 to 31 verse 18.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You for bringing us here to the beginning of this, the seventh week of the year. And that in itself is hard to believe. It seems like yesterday, yet this kind of how porous time is and yet one thing that is constant is this rhythm where we come together around the global campfire as a community each and every day and allow Your word to wash over us and speak to us and inform us and give us counsel for the day. And, so, we thank You for this gift and we thank You for this week out in front of us. We invite Your Holy Spirit now in advance before any missteps. Come Holy Spirit and lead us on the path that we should walk this week and we certainly won’t be blaming You for the times that we choose not to listen, but we also commit ourselves to listening. Come Holy Spirit we pray. In Jesus’ name we ask. Amen.

Definitely been asking the community to begin to pray into the upcoming pilgrimage that we’ll be taking to the land of the Bible. There’ll be a couple of buses of us and we’ll be traveling all over the land and all of the logistics of traveling in from all over the world are very near. We’ll be heading out in week. So, thank you for your prayers.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi Nonny. I’m calling in actually to encourage you. I just wanted to remind you of the story in the Bible that occurred when Moses and Aaron went to go speak to Pharaoh __ situation __ and Moses told God, “look, I did what you told me to do. I had the right approach to it, the right expectation, I was confident, but it did work out and it got worse.” What I love about that, that verse that it showed __ that God had a plan for even that moment, that moment of despair and confusion of why certain things are happening in our lives and we try to have the right approach to it. God has a plan for even your situation. God is lifting you up, He’s pulling you up and He’s just telling you to keep holding onto that robe, the hem of his garment. In Philippians chapter 1 verse 6 it says, “be confident of this very thing that he who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” God will not abandon you, He will bring you through, He will keep that good work that is within. He will keep progressing you and evolving you and the word will bring you through. He loves you so much. He has not forgotten you. So, keep seeking after Him, going after Him relentlessly. Whatever it takes to get closer to Jesus. If you need to spend hours in your car just talking to God, do it. Just don’t let go of Jesus. He’s not letting go of you. We love you at the DAB and so does God. Bless you honey.
Yes, hi my name…I’m from New Jersey…I’m calling, this is my first time calling in, this is my first time following Daily Audio Bible. I’m calling to ask if you guys could please pray for me. I’m looking for a full-time permanent job. I’m in my late 50s and it’s been difficult to find even though I’m a nurse. I also would like to ask if you would pray for a person that I’m working with. I work as a substitute. I work with an autistic student that I know is very smart and I just pray that God will open up his brain so that he can show the place that he goes to school and home all the things that he knows. Also, if you can just pray for my…I have two girls that are not talking to each other right now. If you can just pray for them I really appreciate it. And just continue to pray for me so I can continue follow Daily Audio Bible, daily. Thank you. God bless.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible brothers and sisters, this is Amazed by Grace in Massachusetts. I’ve been listening to the Daily Audio Bible about three years and am so excited of how God has blessed me and given me the opportunity to be part of so many of your lives as you share and we are able to pray for one another. I was so happy to hear your call this morning Margo and that you are doing better in your adjustment to this huge change in your life. I just praise the Lord that you and your husband are taking this next up. And I want Jane to know in New York that we’re praying for her and that you will find friendships in the church where you can be encouraged and we continue to pray for Margaret Ray and for others who are struggling in loneliness. And so good to hear from the Prodigal that you’re doing better and persevering. It’s so wonderful to be part of this community. This morning I’m on my way to __ to help care for some little people while their moms are busy and I just so thankful for this and other ways that we can serve him. Blessings on all of you today. Thank you again to the Hardin’s and all the team that make this ministry possible. Bye-bye for now. Gld bless.
Good morning family this is T from Salt Lake City Utah. First time calling, been listening since probably Thanksgiving of last year. So, this will be the first full year I’ve done. It’s been wonderful. To be honest to get to the point. I guess. I’m calling first of all just to thank everyone for just the prayers that they put out there for everyone else. The encouragement is wonderful to hear. I could use a bit myself to be honest. I would say over the last six months or so I just kind of felt an absence of the peace of God that I used to feel on a daily basis and I don’t know what’s happened or what’s changed. I, you know, I do, I’ve, I listen to the Bible, I don’t have a lot of time to read the Bible, but I do listen to every day. But I mean I just I don’t know, I’ve struggled with depression, with, you know, despair and thoughts of just not taking my life but rather just wanting it to end so to speak I mean if that makes sense. I just, I guess I just need prayer to have the strength to keep going and to know that this is probably a time when I’m in the waiting and I’m waiting for something but I just pray for…pray for me family. Pray for strength that I will continue to just get up and march forward even when it feels like I’m not…I don’t feel like He’s there sometimes. I thank you all so much. I love you guys. Keep it up. Bye.
