Ezekiel 20:1-49, Hebrews 9:11-28, Psalms 107:1-43, Proverbs 27:11
Today is the 9th day of November. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It’s great to be here with you as we…well…as we begin to close the books on another one of our weeks and continue forward on our journey. So, we’ve been reading from the Contemporary English Version this week, which is, of course, what we’ll do today. And we’re continuing the journey through the book of Ezekiel. Today we’ll read chapter 20.
Father, we thank You for another week in Your word and we can see on the calendar that we don’t have so many of these weeks left before we will conclude another revolution around the sun, and another adventure through the Scriptures. And, of course, that’s thinking out in front of ourselves. We are here now, and Your word keeps us grounded each day in the day that we are in and You give us what we need for the day. And we thank You for bringing us this far and we do indeed look forward with anticipation that You will give us what we need each and every day as we continue this journey to the end of the year. Come Holy Spirit, speak to us through Your word, plant Your word in the fertile soil of our lives and may our hearts be fertile soil, not hardened, but fertile and ready to receive from You, that we might flourish and that the fruit of the Spirit might be the harvest. Come Jesus we pray in Your mighty name. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi Daily Audio Bible family this is Kathleen from Florida. I would appreciate your prayers. I’m getting ready to start a woman’s Bible study in my home that is tied to the Daily Audio Bible and the God of Your Story. And I’m just really coveting your prayers that the people who are supposed to come, that there will be no hindrances and that everything that is said and done will just be of the Holy Spirit. And really, really appreciate this portal and life giving resource and would really appreciate your prayers for this season that we’re moving into. Thanks.

And Tom I heard you and your prayer, and you are on the repeat list in the Bible or in my prayer list I have.

Hey DAB family this is Tony the painter. I’m not in London anymore I’m in Hatfield but I…I…I…I have to pray today for Sandy and Amarillo. Father God Lord please come into Sandy’s heart, into her mind, into her body and always Lord, never ever let Sandy ever forget You. Lord let her just be filled with Your Holy Spirit for all the rest of her life Lord. And Father God Lord I praise You and we’ll praise You and we ask You to just pour out Your blessings on Sandy and if possible, bring healing to her mind. Lord we love you in the name of Jesus. Amen. And Sandy this is kind of a huge thing for me to hear you saying these things because to become a Christian I had a motorbike crash at 65 miles an hour and I hit my head and my short-term memory is terrible. And, so, hearing you speak the way that you did really…it just…I just…I just heard your frustration and…and that realization that there are limitations. But you know what? You can come through all of this because Jesus is walking right with you. He’s got you in His hands and He loves you with all of His heart. So, anyway, God bless everybody. I’m praying for all of you. Love you guys. Oh…and I’ve got my Campfire mug. That’s so cool. Thank you, Brian. Take care, God bless you all. Bye-bye.
This is Kathleen from Florida. I heard Sandy from Amarillo who called in this morning about a brain stroke. And I have to say that I just wept after first hearing her plea. So, Jesus I ask for Your holy hedge of protection around Sandy physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, that she would have words of knowledge and that she would have opportunities to minister to the medical attending and ask for healing for her, but I ask for or Your will to be done and if it means You have spiritual healing in mind for those around her or who are attending to her, I pray You give her grace as Your work with the Holy Spirit comes full circle. Thank You, Jesus. And Sandy, know that I find You extremely courageous for calling in. We’ll be praying for You.
Good morning family this is Bridget from New York City today is November 5th. I’m behind. I’m still on November 1st. I just wanted to share my heart with you guys. I woke up today with this song on my Spirit, “Rescue” from Lauren Daigle and one of the lyrics really stood out and, you know, he…she says, “I hear you whisper underneath your breath. I hear you calling with your SOS.” And I know for me personally sometimes, I get hurt and offended by the words that my husband says and the way that he behaves. And it’s hard, right, not to feel, you know. It’s hard not to let it bother me, you know. And then God puts this song on my heart, and I know that He does hear my heart and I know that He will rescue and I’m just thankful for that. So, I just want to pray for those women that feel, you know, offended or hurt by their spouses. Lord, I just lift them up, I lift up every single female that’s in a marriage God that Lord her husband’s words weigh heavy to the point that it shakes her atmosphere Lord and I pray Father for You to shake her atmosphere. My God Your word says that You are our Father, that there is nothing that You would keep from us, that if Your child asks for a fish, will You give them a rock? No God. So, I just pray right now for every woman that is hurting that Father You would hear their cries and answer their heart cry Lord God, that You will open up their husband’s eyes to see God how it is that their words weigh heavy on their wives Lord God. Help us God in Jesus’ mighty, mighty name help us God. Amen.
