1 Chronicles 7:1-8:40, Acts 27:1-20, Psalms 7:1-17, Proverbs 18:22
Today is the 9th day of July welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian and it’s great to be here with you together as we close another one of the weeks that we get to spend in this year traveling through the year and traveling through the Bible. So, it is wonderful to be here with you today as we pick up where we left off yesterday, and that leads us back into the book of first Chronicles in the Old Testament and the book of Acts where the apostle Paul has appealed to Caesar. So, let’s dive in. First Chronicles chapters 7 and 8 today.
Father, we thank You for Your word and the way that it speaks to us throughout all the different days and weeks and months that we have traveled. And as we release this week and it fades and becomes a part of our history we look forward to where You are leading us as we approach the end of the genealogies in first Chronicles, as we are seemingly lost at sea with the apostle Paul, as we are reminded that You are our shield in the book of Psalms and as we are reminded that he wo finds a wife finds what is good and gaining favor from the Lord. And, so, we thank You for our wives. For indeed this proverb as all of the wisdom found in Proverbs is true. And, so, Father we release this week to You and we look forward longingly to what comes next in the days ahead. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hello Daily Audio Bible family this is People on the Water from Indiana and currently I am in the water. I would like to drop a little present on you guys. So, over the past few years or so every time I would hear a…like a fire truck or a cop car sirens or like an ambulance and they’re flashing like it’s audible I would stop what I was doing and pray. Maybe I would pray for that vehicle, that situation or I would just simply praise God. There are other sounds out there though. There is the sound of jets or airplanes flying above our heads. There’s the sound of cars honking. There is the sound of trains. There’s the sound of people sneezing. There’s the sound of people huffing and puffing. There’s a lot of sounds out there. So, pick a sound maybe if you want and let that sound be a…almost an alarm for you to pray - pray for that person, that situation or just pray and be like, I love God. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Hey family this is Travis calling from Alberta Canada. I just wanna say first off thank you for all the prayers. They’ve really really meant a lot to me and have brought me to tears in a lot of times. So, today’s July 6th and this is for Brian from Ohio and for all of the other parents who have kids who are dealing with…with alcohol or drug addiction. Brian, I just heard your wonderful prayers for your son who’s 33 and is an addict and I want you to know I’ll be praying for him and for you. But I also want you to know that I'm…I’m 36 and I’m a former addict and the things that truly truly helped me was my mother’s prayers and my father’s prayers and their just absolute love for me and never judged me they just prayed. And Brian God hears you. To all your parents out there who are dealing with…with kids with addiction problems. God hears you. So let me just pray real quick. Lord, I thank You for all the parents here who are…who are struggling with…with their children who are dealing with addiction. God, I pray that You would just be with them. Be with their kids God. Open their eyes oh Lord that they may see the true freedom that comes in Christ. Open their eyes oh Lord that they would know that their addictions are nothing but chains. Doesn’t bring them freedom. Freedom is only found in You. Pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen. Love you family.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible family this is Jeremiah from Michigan God Gives Good Gifts. I’m a couple days behind so I’m calling in about the July 4th and the prayer request for our new sister Sam. Let’s go to the Lord together in prayer. Father God we just thank You for Sam. We thank You for our new sister in Christ. We thank You for her baptism into Your family and into Your Spirit. Father God we just stand in the gap for her. We ask Lord that You would just put Your angels around her give them charge over her and let them just protect her from all the lies of the enemy. Lord, we thank You for her freedom from alcoholism from sin from flesh from this world. We just stand in that with her Lord. And Lord we just ask that…that You would cover her, that You would pour the blood of Jesus over her mind and her hearts or spirit or soul, that You would just protect her from the lies of the enemy. Lord we also just ask for Your presence Lord, for Your Spirit to move, for just her to feel You with her each and every moment each and every day. Lord as she faces these challenges I pray Lord that she would turn to You over and over and over again day by day moment by moment trusting in You, putting her faith and hope in You. And Lord we just ask that Your peace and presence would just overwhelm her just that she would know that she is Your child that You are with her taking care of her that You have her in the palm of Your hands and that You have a plan and purpose for her life. And Lord we just…we just thank You again for her. We thank You for all the work that You’re doing and all of our lives. We just turn to You we trust You and we bless You Lord. You are worthy of all glory and praise. We’re so grateful we pray these things in Jesus’ name. We bless You. We…Good morning DAB family this is Blessings Flow in Pennsylvania. God bless you all. Today’s the morning of July 7th. I just wanted to pray a blessing over all of us and first wanted to thank James the teacher in California. I just finished the end of the July 6th broadcast and your words to Travis just about, you know, that it will be more than his education feeling like he’s starting out late more than education or those things that will prepare him. It’s the Lord that prepares us even through life experience. That blessed me so much. Thank you. Travis I’m 36 too and I’m just starting out now as a licensed social worker and it just started this new job as a therapist and sometimes I feel so ill equipped. But I have had many years in ministry and the Lord will use everything to help us shepherd and bless other people. And I want to pray over all of our long walks today, Psalm 3. Lord, how they increase that trouble me. Many are they that rise up against me. Many there be that say of my soul there’s no hope for me or my God but thou oh Lord are a shield for me. You’re my glory, the one who lifts up my head. Lord, I thank You today for lifting up our head. Lord, any weight or anxiety or what we think today should be like I just thank You for lifting that up off of us. Be our glory, be our shield. Bless everyone on their long walk today we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
