Today is the 10th day of August. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It is a joy to be here with you as we end a week together. Another one of our weeks has gone by. And, yeah, we just keep marching forward and I love it. We march through the seasons, we march through so much in a year and the Bible speaks into all of it and that happens because we keep the rhythm going. We just show up. That’s all we have to do. And, so, here we are. We showed up. And we’ve been reading from the God’s Word Translation this week. Today Ezra chapter 10.
Thank you, Father for bringing us through another week in your word and thank you for bringing us through another week of our lives. Thank you for your presence among us as a community. Thank you for your presence individually in our lives. Come Holy Spirit as we prepare for the new week. And as we close this one down, we open our hearts to you and ask that you lead us into all truth as you’ve promised. Come Jesus we pray. In your name we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hello DAB family this is Chandra calling from Maryland. I know I am I’m about a week late. I’m catching up with everything, but I did want to call. The Holy Spirit impressed upon me. Alaska mom, you called in with your prayer request, you mentioned how you’re in Africa and because of things that were going through you weren’t able to leave when you wanted to and things like that. And that made me think of Jesus several times, that he met people. He, it wasn’t on his schedule, but the Lord lead him to other places like the woman at the well and other places and it’s a divine set up, you know, it says God is leading, guiding, and ordering your steps. He has you there for that time, that reason, that season. So, please just continue to patient and rest and trust in God. And I wanted to call and leave a message for Demetrius, I believe that’s his name. I wanted to let you know I‘m hearing all these guys…well…people…more specifically men, reaching out to you. And just to let you know that God had you call even though you may not know why you said what you said and why everything the way that it worked out. Just thank the Lord that he allowed you to get through because you have a multitude of people praying for you. Well, I love you guys and like I said I’m catching up with the prayers and everything like and hearing the word. You guys be blessed. Thank you so much Brian and Jill for this outlet, you know, for making a way for people to hear the word and then the praise and then their prayers just to…
Hey family this is Ken from Indiana. I love you all so much. I absolutely love listening to this and thank you Brian so much. I just have to say, it’s been so difficult to call in for some reason. Every time I went to call in Satan just strikes me with so much anxiety, I just start shaking but…so, I haven’t written anything down. I’m just calling off the cuff. I really need prayer. I’ve posted prayers a couple times on the Prayer Wall because it’s so much easier, but I have two daughters that just have absolutely terrible eczema that has ravished their skin all over their bodies. We’ve sought out so much help from doctors and specialists and dermatologists and I’ve only just started getting some relief from naturopathic doctors, but just the stress and the stress from money of spending so much money trying to get help for them has just really, really been hard on our family. My wife has struggled so much with anxiety and drifting from Christ and the relationship that you once had. I just covet your prayers and could really use prayers for direction on which way to go and if God’s willing for miraculous healing for my daughter’s and for relief for my wife. I love you all. Looks like my times about up. Thank you so much. Bye.
Hi this is Kanisha from Atlanta. I’m gonna try to say this very quickly. There was a lady, I didn’t catch her name, she called in about losing her faith, to pray that she…it’s restored and something about she works from home…her business is at home or…and she was having technical issues. Her dog was sick also as well. I’m just gonna offer you some words of encouragement here. Back in 08 I was sick. I didn’t know what was wrong with me and I went into the hospital and what it seems a month and a day. They said I had a rare blood disorder called TTP. A series of miracles occurred. And I say a series in regards to my healing. I’m a medical mystery as to how I was able to survive that. I’m here and I’m living proof. Just hold onto His word. Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. And this is for anyone who’s battling or just feels that they’re being attacked and going. You just have to stay in faith. God promised He would never leave us nor forsake us. And in my darkest hour…at my darkest hour when I thought I was going to die He was there for me as only he could be. So, I just pray for you that you feel that peace that I felt when I was ill and that you’re able to just know you’re not alone, you’re not going through this alone. And just hold on to His word. Hold on. He’s not left you. He’s there…
Hello Daily Audio Bible family, this is Tracy. I’m the girlfriend of Robert Willing to Serve. He passed away yesterday, which would be on the sixth. I ask for prayers for me and his family during this time, which is still…just everyone’s in shock. And I want…I want to share something with that Robert and I would do morning. We would listen to the Daily Audio Bible and it was very important to us and he would like go everywhere and he would…he would show…he would tell people about the Daily Audio Bible. It was in his card and he would talk about it and __ listen to. I love you Brian and your family, which helped us immensely through this short time that I was with Robert. And I just want to thank you for…for all…for all that you did and please pray for us and the family. Thank you. This is Tracy. I’ll be…I’ll in touch. Bye.
Hi Daily Audio Bible family this is my first time calling in. I’ve been listening to the Daily Audio Bible now for about a month and ½ and it’s completely changed my life. But my call today is for a request a prayer request for my brother. My brother’s name is Robert, has been a severe alcoholic for going on maybe 13 years. So, he’s been to rehab, no exaggeration, probably seven times and he’ll be fine for a while and then he’ll relapse, and he’ll go for a while without drinking and then he’ll start drinking again and then he’ll binge very, very bad. He’ll leave, go a couple towns away, hold himself up in a hotel, and just drink himself into oblivion. He’s he left yesterday morning…afternoon…I’m not sure which…what time you left yesterday but left yesterday on his motorcycle. He just got a motorcycle…I don’t know about a month ago. He is not a believer. So, I’m just asking for you all to please lift him up and also for myself and my mom. We’ve been going through this for 13 years now and I feel like I’ve become very immune to it and “oh it’s Robert’s at it again” kind of thing and I don’t even know how to pray for him anymore…sometimes…
