2 Samuel 2:12-3:39, John 13:1-30, Psalms 119:1-16, Proverbs 15:29-30
Today is the 23rd day of May welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I’m Brian it is wonderful to be here with you today as we move into the end…not move in…like this is the end of another week and…yeah…wow…look how far we are into May already. Let…let me not get sidetracked there. The next thing we’ll be talking about the weather and everything. So, let’s do what we’ve come to do. Let’s take the next step forward in the Scriptures this week. And we are moving into the book of second Samuel now, paying close attention to the life of David. Today second Samuel chapter 2 verse 12 through 3 verse 39.
Father, we thank You for Your word. And even as we end another week, we are grateful for all that we have learned and all that You have poured into us this week. And we thank You that as we end this week we…we end it at least in the gospel of John, Jesus, with…with You on Your knees washing the filthy feet of Your friends. And we see that scene and we hear Your words that…hat we are not greater than You our master and that if You are our master than this is the posture that we should have, one that washes the filth, releases the grime away from those who are near. And, so, as we as we move to the end of this week and prepare to begin a new week, we take that with us. We want to live into that in this coming week. And, so, we invite Your Holy Spirit into that. Come Jesus we pray. In Your mighty name we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi DAB family this is the Lord’s misfit in Texas. I’ve been listening now for three years and this is my first-time calling in. I wanted to first encourage anybody who may be a new listener out there. I just want to say to really stick with it and it really will do tremendous things in your life. When I first started listening I was really just curious to know exactly what was in the Bible and what it turned into for me was a journey where I worked on my relationship with God and have just seen great things happen in my life and am truly grateful to everybody at the DAB for this app and for all of everybody who calls and prays for each other. It’s just very encouraging. Second, I did want to ask for prayer for my older sister. She’s now entering her late 30s and I know that she’s frustrated that God has not yet sent her husband. I know she really wants a family of her own and she such a great person and we know it’ll happen for her, but I do hurt when she’s lonely and I hurt for all of those who are in the same spot, especially with everything going on and people staying home. So, I’d like to pray in Jesus’ mighty name for Him to comfort all of those who are single during this time and who are really hoping that God will bring them a spouse. Give them strength and give them patients and if it’s your will Lord, please send them somebody soon who they can love and work on their relationship of love through you and for all those and for my sister. Please join me in that prayer. I love you all. Thanks so much.
Hi, my name is Cynthia, I’m a first-time caller but I’ve been listening to the Daily Audio Bible for years. I’m just calling to ask you all to continue to pray with me for my son and his wife. He’s trying to do the right thing, but Lord sometimes it gets hard. They’re going through something right now. I ask that God, Lord Jesus please help both of them to get a closer relationship with You, to put You first in all that they do Father God. Lord just pray with me Daily Audio Bible to help them to get closer to You, to do what they know to do. You know, the Bible says You do what You know to do and help them to study so they can learn more and put their trust in You, Father, God. I also pray for my grandson. He’s going to college in California, he’s a junior but he’s gonna move out there and I just pray that God will wrap his arms around him God and keep him safe from all hurt, harm and danger. And please Lord help him to stay on the right path, to stay with God Lord. He’s definitely a Christian, a good Christian. Help him to stay that way no matter what happens but just protect him and keep him safe in Jesus’ name. I thank You all for praying with me. I pray for You each and every day. In Jesus’ name I pray.
Dear Running Desperately to Jesus this is Alina a Jesus worshiper here. You know, God was just reminding me about the grandmother that actually I can never forget. I have a special relationship from my really, really small age. My parents were leaving me at my grandparent’s house during the summertime for the school grade, which is in Ukraine for like three months. And this special, special relationship that I had with my grandmother and be…and watching her grow in Christ, 20 something years later made me saved. I lived with Christ I would say all my life but the way that I am right now of __ for two years is completely different when during all these years her prayers were holding me together. And I look at my life and I see Jesus now. I see Him in every moment and every prayer that I was praying for all these years He was hearing everything. And I know that it probably was really hard for my older grandmother to take care of me and sometimes she was sick and she was not feeling good but the love that she gave me, it was…my parents could never give me that kind of love. It only can come from a grandmother’s heart. And I pray today that God is going to give you so much love to this child, that you’re going to be able to take care of him or her, and you will have this special time, and you will both enjoy. And I pray that Jesus is gonna wrap His arms around you and you don’t have to run anymore and He’s just gonna be there for you all the time. I pray Lord for this lady in Jesus’ name Amen.
Lord I just want to pray for Reed. As a 13-year-old I felt similar and I just felt like I could die and nobody would care and I just want you to be with him and to let him know that even his darkest secrets are worth sharing and worth shining light on so that he can overcome them. Lord I just hope that You can find a creative outlet for him, whether it be writing or music. Lord just lift him up, let him see You in the tiny crevices of every day. In Your’ name I pray. Amen.
This is Sam Here I Am with thank you and a praise for Rebecca from Michigan who called in on the 17th May. Rebecca I just want to thank you for your words. They were very encouraging to me. And your words of having to learn to love myself, forgive myself, see myself as God sees me really spoke to me today and it was very timely. So, thank you for calling in and sharing that.
Hey, DABbers this is Slave of Jesus in North Carolina. Alright Holy Spirit let’s roll. So, I have a rule with my wife that I do not mention any female DABbbes out there, but I don’t think I’m violating this. We have a member of our family that has been diagnosed with COVID. So, it’s Marjorie. So, if we can get your prayers for a quick recovery from Marjorie but more importantly to know that she is solidly in You, in Jesus’ name. Amen. Duane, amen to your prayers for Will who recently lost his stepson. Amen to your prayers for Joshua. You know amen prayers…someone called in praying for the Koranists and that they would look for Jesus. I don’t know if you guys know this, the Koran, that brought me to Christ. I know that sounds crazy, but I was an atheist, very hard-core adamant argumentative hard-core atheist but I had to start studying the Koran for my job. My job in the military was to think like the enemy. I don’t think that Muslims are the enemy. We just happened to be fighting a lot of countries with guys who call themselves Muslims. I’ll take a pious Muslim over a hypocritical Christian every day of the week. But that all aside I started reading the Koran and there’s all these references to the Bible. And I’m like, “ugh…I guess I got a really read that stupid Bible so that I can understand when Mahammad’s ranting about the people of Lot. I know Lot’s in the Bible, but I don’t know what that means.” But so, Muslims believe that Jesus is the second most important prophet to walk the earth, like what he said came from God. They use Ala, but the one and only God. They believe in one God. And, so, you can talk to Muslims about Jesus. I know we’ve had 9/11 and that clouds our ability, but I say it’s easier to talk to a Muslim about Jesus than it is an atheist who doesn’t even believe in God. So, think about that and thank you for that person who said we should pray for the Koran. Love you all have a great day.
