Isaiah 43:14-45:10, Ephesians 3:1-21, Psalm 68:1-18, Proverbs 24:1-2
Today is the 24th day of September, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is wonderful to be here with you today, as we gather from all points of the earth and come around this Global Campfire and move forward in the Scriptures together. And as we round the corner on another one of our weeks, we’ll dive in and pick up where we left off. We’ve been reading from the Christian Standard Bible this week and today, Isaiah chapter 43 verse 14 through 45 verse 10.
Father, we thank You for Your word. The very thing that draws us together in community, the thing that makes us a Global Campfire, we thank You for the Scriptures. We thank You for another week to spend together in them. And now, we turn toward another weekend, toward the end of another month, time keeps flying by. But each and every day You give us nourishment for our souls from the Scriptures and we are grateful for that. Each and every day, we are offered counsel, an opportunity to reflect, an opportunity to repent, change our minds and, and moving in another direction. We see that as we engage with the Scriptures each and every day, we are being refined, day-by-day, step-by-step. So, we look back at the beginning of our journey and we look at where we are in the journey, we see that so many things have been challenged and comforted within us as we continue this journey through the Scriptures. And we ask Holy Spirit certainly for this to continue. We know that this will continue as we remain steadfast and aware of what, not only the Scriptures are doing in our lives, but what You are leading us into. So, come Holy Spirit, lead us into all truth, we pray. In the name of Jesus, we ask. Amen.

Prayer and Encouragements:
Good morning DABers, this is Morning Star from Canada calling. And I wanted to call today in response to our gal from Vegas, who called in on the podcast today, September the 20th. And just hearing your voice each month, around the 15th, not always on the 15th. But it just, it always brings a smile to my face, such a voice of joy and positivity, I guess you could say. And yet today, it was a different voice. It was a voice that sounded overwhelmed. A voice that sounded a little just overburdened. And so, today we want to pray for you Val, we want to ask just Holy Spirit to just be with you today. I’m reminded of the words of the hymn, it is well with my soul, when sorrows like sea billows roll and the waves of sorrow come and just overwhelm us, we can still say it is well, it is well with my soul. So, Holy Spirit, I just pray You’ll be with Val today. I pray You’ll touch her Father, touch her shoulders. I pray, oh God, that You would just bring strength and healing, where strength and healing is needed. Father, not only to body but to soul and to Spirit. In Jesus name we pray. We love you Val, take care. Bye from Canada. Hugs.
Hi Daily Audio Bible family. This is one of your sisters in Christ. I’m calling in to ask for prayer for my marriage. It’s in crisis. It’s gone from pushing emotional buttons to pushing my body. And I don’t know what to do. I want reconciliation but I don’t want to be a door mat. I’m tired of walking on eggshells. And I’m not gonna live in fear. This marriage is important to me. I love him but most of all I love the Lord and I want to keep my commitment that I made at the altar. And I want to offer in a way that brings Him honor and glory. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know where to turn. I don’t know what the answer is. I know you will pray for me. Thank you. And I pray for you all in the background.
Good afternoon DAB family. This is Shondura calling from Maryland. I was calling for two parts. I was listening to a recent broadcast, and I heard a guy asking in prayer for the work that he’s doing overseas. And the thing that jumped out to me the most was, how he wanted to be a part of it but physically aren’t able to. That their prayers mean just as much as those who are physically be there. And that really encouraged me because I know I’ve shared in the past calling in I’m one of those who are dealing with the effects of Multiple Sclerosis and during this time and this season I’m not at a place where I’m able to travel and participate in all the things, I want to be abroad or even across this country. But hearing I can be an encouraged how all of our prayers can do just as much if not more, than actually being there and being part of it. And I wanted to had it not only for myself, but for others who are going through things that are similar. I thank you so much. Brian, Jill, China, Ezekiel, everyone that’s part of the Hardin Family. And to all of those who are working in the background. Whether on a prayer request or those who are just listening and calling and praying, and just contributing in whatever aspect. It is so insightful and encouraging for all of us. I love you guys. And you guys not only pray for me but pray for everyone else. And you all have a blessed day and week. Thank you. Bye.
Hello, this is My Heart Belongs to Jesus. Even though my prayer request will get heard after the fact, I know that God will hear your prayers as if you’re speaking to them, right now. We have such an amazing God and I’m just so thankful that you guys are willing to join in with prayers. I’m asking for prayer for my husband’s 82-year-old uncle George. He was driving his motorcycle and at a light he didn’t see a van and he turned on the front and got hit. The doctors say that there’s nothing more they can do, his organs are failing. George is a very selfish man, Godless man. And he has hurt many people and has not cared. He has inappropriately touched many young girls, including our daughter. His own children have separated from him but despite it all my husband and I are trying to bring Jesus to his life. He is not been open. I’m going to call the hospital right now and talk to him and see if there’s anything that I can say that will help his heart be open to God. My prayer and my hope is that he will come to the Lord and God would heal him so that he could give glory to God in his life. My husband’s families are not believed families, not a believer and I am praying for his parents as well. I was able to pray with his grandmother before she died. And that was a huge excitement, but we were not able to share at all with the family because they would have been frustrated and upset. I am praying for each of them and I’m asking you to pray for them as well. I’m praying that God opens their hearts. No one deserves God’s grace. But we all need it. And I really appreciate all your prayers. Pray for my daughter cause she continues to work through the struggles of what happened, and I just pray for healing and forgiveness. In Jesus name.
Hello everyone, this is Iris from Sun City. I would like to address with prayer and sympathy, Val from Vegas’s shoulder pain. I remember a few years ago my late husband had fallen from a bus onto some black ice and badly injured his shoulder. He said that it was the worst pain he has ever experienced. This man has two purple hearts and a medal for Valor from his time in Vietnam. Yet, he said that shoulder pain was the most difficult thing he’s ever gone through. Father God, I pray that you would address this pain that Val is experiencing. Give her peace and Dear Lord, help her to find relief through doctors, through medication, through healing. However, You decide to do it. Help her to feel Your love. In Jesus Holy, Precious and Powerful name. Amen.
In the Gospel of John chapter 3, it says that God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. He sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. And that includes the dear people from Afghanistan refugees who’ve ended up able to escape but leaving behind so many of their close family members, who they see every day suffering on their cell phones. I count it a great privilege, this is Candace from Oregon, to have spent the whole last school year, teaching English to a bunch of these dear ladies. And I get to continue that now, this school year. But oh, the suffering that’s going on. Please pray for them. And pray for me because we’ve only had one class so far, but one lady is in such trouble, she cannot attend the class yet. And she is so dear and it’s just, it’s just breaking my heart. And I really need your prayers for strength, for ability to set boundaries for my own self. Thank you.
