2 Chronicles 8:11-10:19, Romans 8:9-25, Psalms 18:16-36, Proverbs 19:26
Today is the 23rd day of July welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I’m Brian it’s awesome to be here with you every day. It’s awesome to be here with you around the Global Campfire as we move forward on our journey. And this journey is well underway. We’re well into the Scriptures, but we’re in a journey that takes us all the way through, and we do that, step-by-step day by day. And, so, we’re here for the next step. And that next step leads us back to second Chronicles in the Old Testament and the book of Romans in the New. We’re reading from the English Standard Version this week which is today and then we’ll move forward tomorrow. But for today second Chronicles chapter 8 verse 11 through 10 verse 19.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You indeed for another week to spend on this earth together in community day by day moving through the Scriptures. And as is so often the case, we find ourselves in a state of gratitude because the Scriptures speak to our lives. They inform our lives. They inform our choices. They bring the voice of wisdom to us and reveal the crossroads in our lives. And we confess, there’s plenty of times we’re not paying attention but that’s not because it’s not available and it’s not there. So, we thank You for wisdom. We thank You for mercy. We thank You for grace. We thank You for freedom. All of the things that we are learning about in the letter to the Romans right now. We thank You for these things. Holy Spirit come, and as we cooperate by surrendering and submitting ourselves before You give us eyes to see and ears to hear, that we might see clearly the path that we are walking together with You forever. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
This is Grant from __. I just want to take a moment this morning to pray for all of y'all out there. I don’t know what all your problems are, but God does. I just pray that, Lord that you please just be with all the people that need you, please just bless them, take care of them, and love them. Please just guide them in the direction that you wish for them to take. Please help all those that are having mental issues and cancer, fighting cancer and all. Lord, you know all their problems. Lord, I ask you please just be with them, bless them. Give them your love. Take care of them. I pray these things in your name Jesus. Amen. Love all y'all. Hope you have a great day. Hope the Lord is with you. Take care.
Hey family this is Mindy calling from Ohio and I was calling hopefully to encourage our sister Ashley from California. I heard your prayer request and it made me just think of something that has encouraged me in the last day or two. I heard a message from a pastor that talked about things that we can’t do for all of eternity. We can praise God. We can worship God. We can all of that for all of eternity, but we can’t do it in the midst of our brokenness or in the midst of our pain and our loss. But we have that opportunity to do that here now for such a short time. And it really made me think of what else can’t we do in eternity. And I’ve just been thinking just this morning of, we can’t show the radical love of God to the lost. We can’t tell people that don’t know Jesus about Him. We can’t love people that don’t love us. We can’t do any of that for all of eternity, but we have right now to be able to do that and to be able to sacrifice our way to God and to just give Him that gift of just a sacrifice, just to lay it at His feet, to be instruments of His righteousness in a lost and broken and dark world and bring light into darkness. All of these things we won’t be able to do for eternity, but we can do them now. So, sister I just hope this encourages you and just helps you be the shining light that you’ve been to us when you call in, to be that to your family in the midst of everything you guys are going through. And we’ll be praying for you. OK. Love you guys. Bye.
Good morning DAB this is Pamela from Texas. I just want to encourage you. If you don’t listen to the prayers afterwards to take the time to listen because whether they’re praying for you or not sometimes what is said will speak directly to you. I heard a word on June the 12th. She didn’t even give her name. She just started out my sister in Christ from Texas I feel I have a word for you from the Holy Spirit. And I don’t even think she was praying for me. She was probably praying for someone else in Texas. But what she said I know was a word for me directly from the Holy Spirit and it really resonated with me and spoke to me because of what I was going through. And I don’t call in very much but I’m going to start calling in because I do pray for those requests that God lays on my heart to pray for. And I am encouraged by this podcast and the prayers that everyone prays and how everyone prays for all of us. So, I know that I need prayer and I just wanna encourage everybody to pray and to listen to the prayers because sometimes those prayers will speak to you. Thank you, Brian. I love y’all. Have a great and Jesus filled day. Amen.
Hey everybody this is Jonathan from Denver. I’m calling in need of prayer today. I had some time off this week, took a little extra time off and I was planning to kind of go on my version of the long walk because I wasn’t able to on last Thursday. But instead, I kind of wasted a lot of that time and I sort of spiraled and I didn’t end up doing any of this stuff that I wanted to do. So, I’m just feeling really down and like I am not serving the Lord well and like I’m preventing myself from doing God’s will, which just feels lousy. So, I just ask that you would pray for me as I continue to go through this week. I’m back on and listening and I’m hoping that just hearing more of the word will help me. But your prayers are really coveted, and I thank you for this community and for all that you do for me. I’ve been feeling quite…quite isolated from any sort of faith community. So, this is really a godsend. So, thank you.
