Ecclesiastes 10:1-12:14, 2 Corinthians 8:1-15, Psalms 49:1-20, Proverbs 22:20-21
Today is the 5th day of September welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it is great to be here with you as we reach the end of another one of our weeks together, this the first week of September, although we haven’t lived a full week of September yet. We’ll begin our first full week of September tomorrow, but here we are moving forward step-by-step day by day and it’s great to be here with you as we release another week, allow it to become a part of our history and consider all that God has spoken to us through His word in this week, which has been a lot. We’ve been working through Job, Ecclesiastes, working in…into and through the wisdom literature of the Bible. So, it’s been an incredibly enlightening. So, let’s continue. Let’s continue our journey by taking the next step forward. We’ve been reading from the New International Version this week, which is what we will do today. Ecclesiastes 10, 11 and 12 today.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for another week in Your word and we thank You for all that You bring up in a year in Your word. You touch every part of our lives. And, so, we open ourselves up to the things that You’re touching now, the things that You are bringing us through as You bring us through the different territory in the Scriptures. And, so as this week comes to a close, we release it, we let it go, it becomes a part of our memory, it becomes a part of our history. We are here now, and You are leading us forward and we are grateful beyond words. No matter what we have endured, no matter what we have gone through, no matter what the days bring us, no matter how hard they are we are breathing. You have given us the breath of life. We are here. And sometimes we lose sight of that because of what we’re enduring, and we think it’s bad when it’s good, it’s life, it’s a gift. And, so, we take this moment to acknowledge that with a grateful heart. Thank You for letting us be year now. And as we look to the future, we see only You there. We don’t know what we might face but we see You there and that’s what we need to know, You are there and You are here and You are God, And, so, come Holy Spirit as we move forward together. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi guys this is Dave from Colorado. So, here I am, I was driving through Laramie Wyoming on my way home and just feeling a little disconnected and alone, isolated. You know, I am heading home but I do still have quite a ways to go. But yeah, I was listening to the podcast and a prayer came on for all the truckers. And I don’t know who you are sister, but that timing could not have been any better. For what it’s worth, it certainly lifted my spirits and, I don’t know, it’s kind of uncanny the way God works. But anyways thank you. I just want to say thank you for that prayer. That was really awesome. And also, my brother Mark Street, I want you to know that you’ve been in my prayers. I hope everything’s working out well for you. Keep us posted brother. All right family. I love you all and I’ll talk you all later. Bye.
Hello DAB family my name is Michael from Sarasota Florida and I’ve been listening since May of this year and the reading by Brian and thank goodness for Brian and his ministry. It has profoundly opened my eyes in my heart to God and the Bible. It’s August 29th and this reading in particular brought me to tears and resonated with me so profoundly, I can’t explain. But there are things going on in my life that I need this community and prayer. Brian, I want you to know that I love you and I will be here for you tomorrow and I am so thankful you are here for all of us. Thank you DAB family.
Candace from Oregon praying along now with my DAB family. Lord Jesus, King of all creation, beautiful Savior, Sovereign Lord, heavenly Father, Abba, Holy Spirit, we cry out to You Lord. We cry out to You on behalf of our amazing brother Mark Street from Australia. Would You be very near to him right now as he struggles with the recovery from a stroke? Would You heal him? And most of all would You just be incredibly close to him, speaking to his heart and mind and soul every step of the way? I pray Lord that You will be with Daniel Johnson Junior from Cleveland Ohio and that similarly You’ll be with him every step of the way as he looks to You for provision, for employment, for full employment in their family and provision. Lord, we know that nothing is too difficult for You. Be with my friend Beth Andre who is very, very week in fourth stage colon cancer. Lord, help us to keep our eyes on You no matter what. We love You so much and we’re so grateful to You Lord.
Hey, DABbers this is Katie in Kentucky and I’ve mentioned before that I often listen when I’m out running which is going on today. It’s Sunday, August 28th and I was out today listening to all the prayer requests and God just brought back to me something that happened years ago, and I just felt led to call in and share it as an encouragement. I was going through a time where I was working at a church camp and I was being moved to another church camp and I was concerned about everything I put into the first place and moving on. And I saw this beautiful sunrise and then I turned a corner and it like changed and it was like this…almost like this second beautiful moment. And what God spoke to me then was something beautiful happened in the past, I’ve got something beautiful coming up in your future too. And, so, I just wanted to share that encouragement for everybody who’s maybe going through changes and you don’t know how it’s going to play out or something is ending in your life and you’re looking at how things are going to change and move forward. God sent something beautiful in the past and there’s something beautiful and miraculous and wonderful around the corner that he’s gonna bring again. So, I don’t know who all needs to hear that, but I just felt God leading me to call that in and share it. And I know that I actually personally needed that reminder as I’m looking at some changes as well. So, I love you guys. Every prayer request that’s played I’m just…my heart’s bursting for you and, yeah, I love you guys and I’m praying along with you. Bye.
Hi Daily Audio Bible this is Carolyn here. This is my first time calling in, but I’ve been a listener for years now. I just really need prayer. I am the caregiver of my father, moved both my parents in with me a year ago and my mom was in hospice care and passed away in January. My only sibling passed away two months later in March and my father is understandably depressed but even more so he’s just angry and miserable and he doesn’t seem to see that he needs to be cared for and can no longer live on his own. He’s getting ready to turn 92 and I’m just exhausted mentally, spiritually. I just feel like I’m under attack. All the peace and joy has been stolen from my home and I just want to surrender it all to God and to just stop feeling this way. So, if you could please just say a prayer for me. Thank you all. Love you Brian.
Hello, DABbers I am a new listener. I called in earlier to pray for some people and now I’m calling to ask for prayer for myself, A New Day in Florida. It’s been really hard during these times. I lost my husband in a violent motorcycle accident four years ago and then my mom the year after him to Alzheimer’s and then when we had a storm here in Florida, Erma, I actually fell and broke my ankle and had to have surgeries to install hardware and I don’t have children. I have a sister but since my mom’s death we’ve been kind of estranged. We’re working on it. But I feel very alone, very alone and I am just asking for prayer that the Lord would fill those places for me. I have a number of things I have to do on the house, repairs and renovations and I’m just so lost without my husband and how to do these things and attack them. So, I just want to ask for everyone’s prayer and thank you so much. I…I was so blessed to have stumbled across this app and God bless…
