Exodus 19:16-21:21, Matthew 23:13-39, Psalms 28:1-9, Proverbs 7:1-5
Today is the 4th day of February welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it is wonderful to be here with you today as we gather around the Global Campfire and take the next step forward together. And our next step leads us back into the book of Exodus, where we are in the wilderness with the children of Israel. We’ve been reading from the New English Translation this week, which is what we’ll continue to do today. Exodus chapter 19 verse 16 through 21 verse 21.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for the gifts of Your word. We thank You for bringing us to the conclusion of another week. And father even as we prepare to begin this new week and make a journey into the land of promise, into the land of the Bible and begin that journey tomorrow we ask heavenly Father that You bless us with safety and that You knit us together as a community as we…whether…whether being there in person, or whether experiencing this day by day around the Global Campfire that You would knit us together as a community and bring the land of the Bible immediate to us that we may learn, that we may experience these places where these things that are so monumental in our lives occurred. Come Holy Spirit, we pray. Lead us into all truth, we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hey DAB family this is Burdened Brother in Christ in Virginia and this is my first time calling in. I just joined the DAB family recently and I’ve loved everyday listening to Brian read the word of God and it’s been very encouraging. It’s been very powerful in my life. Getting back on track reading the Bible again. Today I just wanted to lift up anyone who’s struggling with depression or anxiety or thoughts of suicide or anything like that. Lord I just…I ask that You be with those people Lord, that You mind them of their worth Lord. I pray that they recognize that they have a purpose in You, that You have a plan for their life Lord and that whatever they’re going through, whatever they feel about themselves, that You can change them, You can make them new every day. Whatever happened in their past can be changed. They are not defined by their past Lord, but they are defined by You, what Your will is for their life. I pray that they recognize that Jesus died on the cross for them so that don’t have to tear themselves down anymore. They don’t have to…they don’t have to die on the cross because God took their sins. Remind them that they can put the yoke of sin on Jesus. I just pray that there can be some light of hope to their lives Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen. God bless.
This is Janet from the UK. I found my new name. It’s Learning to Completely Trust God. I was lying in bed listening to the community prayer on January 28th and I’m just so uncomfortably in bed. I can’t lie properly. My hips hurt. My leg hurt. And I was listening to one of our DABbers talk about her listening to the community prayer I think on January 8th and somebody was encouraging us to just listen to it and, you know, praying that, you know, if we’re sick in our bodies and stuff to claim victory. And I got up to go do that. I also listened to the lady asking for prayer for her student Elijah and I was gonna go put that in…in my journal because I’ve always wanted to journal, but I really don’t know how. So, I’ve taken up my Daily Audio Bible journal and I realized that I started to write things down and the last thing I wrote was “today I’m going to see my mom” and that’s the day my mom passed which was last year. And I…I’m just having a difficult time. And then this song just came to me, you know, why do I feel that discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart be broken, that I long for heaven and home when Jesus is my portion, a constant friend is He, His eyes on the Sparrow and I know He watches me. Pray for me please. Thank you. God bless you.
Good morning, DABber family this is the Burning Bush that will not be Devoured for the Glory of our God and King. I just heard a sister call in. Her mom battles with I think manic depressive and schizophrenia disorders. And sister I am praying for Shalom in your life. God is your peace. I pray for peace in your heart right now in the name of Jesus. I pray that God will still the storms around you in the name of Jesus. I pray that God will allow you to see yourself seated up in high and heavenly places with him where the enemy can do you no harm in the name of Jesus. And I pray for healing for your mom right now in Jesus’ name, that she will accept whatever medication has been assigned to her by her medic…medical professionals and I pray as you wait for that to happen that God will give you a peace beyond your understanding even at work even as I speak right now sister. God loves you beyond comprehension and I pray for healing in your heart for all that you’ve been through in the name of Jesus I pray. There was also a brother who called. He’s moved out of his family home because his family’s stealing from him. Brother, I hear your voice. I heard a sister call after you with a testimony of how God has healed her from addictions and from all other sorts of things. I don’t know what you and your family have been through, but it sounds like you’ve been through a lot and God hears you and he sees your efforts that you’re making, and I just want to encourage you to keep moving forward. The birds of the air, they don’t sow a seed, but God tends to them. Gods got you. I pray that God will open your eyes, that you will see that those that are with you that are greater than those that are in the world. I pray that God would light your path and give you discernment as you move, that God will provide a place for you, a permanent place for you in Jesus’ name. I love you all. Bye.
Hi DAB family out there this is Christine in North Carolina. I wanted to say a prayer of encouragement but first I was just realizing as I was listening to the final day of January, I wanted to give thanks to God for placing upon my heart the desire for…for more, more of His word and more of what’s a part of His kingdom because I'm…I’m very new to all of this. Probably…probably just about a year a year ago I was baptized in the faith and not too much before then met Jesus and was saved for the first time or saved by Jesus and I’m 41 years old. So, I…I just started listening to the Daily Audio Bible I guess about a year ago, but it was very inconsistent, and I barely could get through the whole reading. Had a hard time hearing the…the prayers and the request for prayer because I just felt very overwhelmed like, how…I don’t know how to hold all of this, how to pray, and how to hear all of these things going on in people’s lives. It’s hard. But now it feels like it’s too short. I’ve been listening every day since the beginning of January. That was my commitment to myself and to the Lord and now it’s just like oh it’s over already. So, I’m just I’m thankful for that. I have to send…
