Isaiah 51:1-53:12, Ephesians 5:1-33, Psalms 69:19-36, Proverbs 24:7
Today is the 27th day of September welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I’m Brian it is great to be here with you as we look out into this fresh, shiny, sparkly new week and we walk into it together, and we…we think in advance about the things that are coming our way that we know about in this week and we make some advanced decisions about how we’re gonna live into this week, as we walk with God and as we allow the Scriptures to speak into our lives and inform our choices each and every day. So, we got a brand-new week. We’ll read from the Lexham English Bible this week and we’ll pick up where we left off in the book of Isaiah…Isaiah. Today chapters 51, 52 and 53.
Father, thank You for Your word and thank You for bringing us into this brand-new, shiny, sparkly week, a week of transition because before this week is over, we will…well…we will be transitioning into a new month. And, so, we are grateful, and we invite Your Holy Spirit, as we continue to focus upon You. And as we talked about from the book of Ephesians a couple of days ago, we’re focusing…we’re focusing upon growing up, we’re focusing these last few days of this month as we prepare to go into the final quarter of the year on spiritual maturity knowing that if we’re gonna succeed in the final quarter of this year we need to start it well. And, so, come Holy Spirit and continue to lead us toward what is mature and what is wise in You, that we might be continually transformed from within, that the wisdom of God from Your spirit within will inform the choices and decisions that we make. And, so, the wisdom from within becomes the wisdom from without and that everything we touch is touched by the fruit of the Spirit that is being cultivated within us. Come Holy Spirit into this we pray. In the mighty name of Jesus we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hey DAB family this is Jordan and Texas. Wanted to call in for Sean who called on the 22nd. Sean you…you called in and were just feeling bad toward yourself, that you couldn’t stand yourself, and that you’re despicable. I just wanted to encourage you because I was praying for you and just felt led and I just wanted to call and encourage you that because you pray…you asked for prayer to be able to write, that you…that Jesus told you to write and you’re having great difficulty with that. And I want to pray for you. And anyway. Lord I just pray for Sean. I believe that…that…that was your name. I didn’t hear too well. But today you’re Sean. So, I pray God for Sean and ask God that You would equip him, You have equipped him, You’ve given him this gift to write, a desire to write and I pray that You would give him the first step to do that, to write something that You take off all the expectations he may have himself or lowered expectations he might have it himself, that he would see himself the way that You do, as someone with a gift, as someone with a story to tell, as someone who bears Your image. And, so, I pray God that…that maybe he begins with writing something simple and that You…that it would just turn into something…to exactly what You were hoping to see come from him and that…just those expectations are lifted. So, Father bless him and that. I pray that he’s encouraged in Jesus name. Amen.
Good morning fellow DABbers this is James the Mighty Warrior from Texas. But I’ve been listening to all of these great people that’s calling in for prayer requests and praise reports. Actually, I’ve been listening to the DAB for…since about 2012 and I don’t call in much, but I definitely listen to the podcast every day and the prayer requests and the praise reports from the community. I’m so grateful for this DAB app. Basically I’m calling up just for to pray for the nation, to pray for the DAB family, all the…all the prayer requests and the…everything that people are going through. I’m just thankful to be a part of this family but I do ask for prayer, that I would just, you know, stay in the right direction and that I would just stay on the path, you know, and I’m just thankful for every good and perfect gift that the Father has given me. I really don’t have anything to complain about. I’m just gonna praise Him. And yes, I’m going through like everybody else, but I can’t focus on it, I’m gonna focus on His goodness. You guys have a blessed day. Bye-bye.
Hi DAB family this is Hopeful, and I just heard Mary’s prayer request for her daughter who’s 25 who’s been battling cancer and I just want to pray over. She didn’t mention her name, so I’ll just refer to her as Mary’s daughter. Father we come to You right now and we just lift up Mary’s daughter to You. We just pray for complete healing over her body, that You would restore her speech, that her life would be a testimony of You and Your power and what You can do. And I just pray in Jesus’ name that You just give her peace and joy in her heart, that she would know that she is loved by You, she is loved by thousands of people who are hearing this and who are praying for her and we just lift her up to You right now in Jesus’ name.
Hi, my DAB family this is Truly Thankful Taylor from DFW the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. I’m just calling today for Denise from North Carolina. My sweet sister I just want to tell you how much I love you and that I am praying for you. I don’t ever want you to feel like your needs, your prayer requests are so small. God cares about the little things. He cares about the big things, but he also cares about the little things and when you’re hurting, He sees you and He knows what you’re going through. And, so, I just want to pray for you and your circumstances. God right now I just pray over Denise. Lord I just ask that You lift her up in this season God, that You would comfort her. Lord she longs to have companionship in her marriage. I pray Lord Jesus that You would give her those desires Lord Jesus. You have said in Your word that it’s not good for man to be alone and You gave him a companion Lord. You’d gave her a companion in her husband Lord, but the intimacy isn’t there. Lord, so I ask that You would ignite a spark. Lord Jesus that You would breathe over it, Lord Jesus. Breathe Your Holy Spirit over their marriage. God that that flame would kindle Lord and would begin to burn, burn with passion, Lord Jesus. Give them a passion and a hunger for each other, a healthy desire that it is Your will in a marriage Lord. And that I just pray an extra blessing of You over them God. May You fulfill every need, every desire Lord Jesus that she has. Give her peace, give her hope, give her strength, give her endurance. Thank You, Lord Jesus that she can stand firm in You Lord God. I ask that You would bless her and her husband and their marriage and their family in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Good morning DAB family this is Lady of Victory on Thursday morning the 24th of September just finished listening to Brian’s podcast today and this call is for Mary and her daughter who has cancer, she’s 25 and been battling cancer since 2016 and has now lost her voice. Oh God, our God how excellent is Your name in all the earth, in all the earth. God we’ve searched high and we’ve search flow and we cannot find anybody who is like our God. God, we don’t understand the things that You do, the things that You allow to happen, but God when we cannot see Your hand, we have to trust Your heart. And God it sounds like that’s what Mary and her daughter is doing at this point God. We thank You Lord God that Mary is a heart and her daughter has a heart to be grateful and to worship You through this hard, difficult time. And yet, God we’re…we’re looking at it like, “really God? 25? And You said, ‘in everything give thanks for this is the will of God concerning us?’” Oh God and it sounds like this lady is doing that God. Her mom says she’s never given up on You. She’s continued to have faith and to trust in You. And, so, God this is a difficult time of losing her speech and we don’t know why You’ve allowed it to happen. God we don’t know what the purpose is God but in Your sovereignty we’re asking if it’d be Your will that You would restore this Young lady’s speech God so that she can tell others about who You are God. That’s her hearts cry, is to tell others about who You are. Yes, God she…she’s living it out through her life, but she wants to use her voice. So, would You do that for Your glory and her good? In Jesus’ name.
Hello Daily Audio Bible this is Tammy calling from Canada I’m a first-time caller except I did actually just call to pray for someone. But I’ve been listening for almost 2 years now and this is such a blessing. I love hearing Brian. I love hearing all the prayer requests. I pray with you all every day and I really covet your prayers right now. About a month ago I started having severe sleep difficulties and disturbances and I’m just in the midst of…of working with doctors to figure out what’s going on but it…it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before and after a month of…of very troubled sleep…and you can imagine that your mind starts to feel like it’s going to crumble and you’re losing your faculties…and that’s about where I am right now. My physical body is…is suffering, my mind is suffering. I have anxiety through the roof. And I just actually did a sleep study last night because I may have sleep apnea. Anyway, I just really covet your prayers, that God could hold me up in this time. I know he will but it’s so hard to convince yourself in the moment when you feel that you just simply can’t stand it anymore, the torture, it is mental torture, sleep deprivation. And it’s hard to see the good and it…it’s hard to see the reason why God allows these things happen. And, so, I thank you for your prayers and your support in this time because I don’t want to give up. I can’t give up for my family. Some days it is so incredibly hard. Thank you.
