1 Samuel 29:1-31:13, John 11:55-12:19, Psalm 118:1-18, Proverbs 15:24-26
Today is the 21st day of May, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and it is great to be here with you, as we bring to close another week together and do what we do every day, gather around the Global Campfire to take that next step forward and that next step leads us back into the book of first Samuel, that we have been navigating. And that’s pretty dramatic. Saul has well, he’s gone to a medium and conjured Samuel, who is informed him that he basically, has a day to live and that Israel is about to fall in battle to the Philistines. Meanwhile, David who was been running for his life from Saul has essentially defected to the Philistines, he’s kind of pretending to be a Philistine but he has been conscripted into the army and he is expected to fight with the Philistines, as a Philistine against Israel. And so, we have plenty of drama to go around. We’ve been reading from the Christian Standard Bible this week, which is what we do today. First Samuel 29, 30 and 31 and with today’s reading, we will conclude the book of first Samuel.
Father, we thank You for Your word and another day and another week. And as we bring the book of first Samuel to a close and prepare to move forward into second Samuel and so, as we move from Saul’s life and David’s life, we thank You for where we are, we thank You for all that we’ve learned about character and integrity and all that we have learned and observed about the fear of man. Holy Spirit, come into all that we’ve read this week. Call it back into our minds and plant it deep in our hearts as we continue to navigate forward so, that we can recall what we have learned and put it into practice. We thank You for Your word, we thank You for the gift that it is. We love You and we worship You and we pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Prayer and Encouragements:
Hey everyone, this is Gabe Fee 50 and I’m just calling to pray over Justin, who called in on May 12th, about just having fear and anxiety in his job and brother, I’m in the same boat as you are. I’ve been at my job for about two years now and the beginning stress of it I would have panic attacks in my car each and every day before every shift. And it was really rough. And it’s, this job still gives me fear, I don’t have as many panic attacks but it’s really forced me to just lean on the Lord and trust in Him and trust in His grace and His power, each and every day. And so, I just wanna pray that for you as well, Justin, that you may trust in the Lord with this job. That you are in His hands and if it’s in His will be at this job just be in this season in your life then may He bless you with His mercy and His grace and comfort. And may He provide you with what you need to get through this job. And if it’s His will for you to not work there, then I just pray He may bless with you with clarity and open eyes and ears to see any other opportunities or doors that may open up for you. I hear you man, I know where you’re coming from and it’s tough, it’s hard. But just trust in the Lord and I just pray that He may bless you with all these things and thanks for the call. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Good morning, Daily Audio Bible community. I don’t have a handle so I’m just gonna go with MC from Fullertin. And I am calling in for prayer requests for, to pray over my anxiety, my work-related anxiety. I want to get a new job and a new career. I’m an older person and I’m in a current job that doesn’t seem suited for my personality type and my skills. And the skills I do have aren’t appreciated and recognized in this job. And lately I have had miscommunication with my boss and she sees me as someone that is a hindrance, I feel. And the communication I was having with her wasn’t against her, it was a barrier that I was experiencing. And I, I don’t under-, I think this a deeper indication of something more prevalent. I need to get a new job basically, and I have a lot of fear around that, I haven’t looked for a job in 15 years. I’m a widow. And I’ve held onto this job so that I could take care of my husband but now that he’s passed, I wanna start anew. I’m just, I’m afraid of change. I just want to do what God wants me to do and I just don’t know what that is anymore. And so, please pray for me.
This is Saved by Grace from California and this prayer is for Kelly from South Carolina. Kelly, I just want to lift you up in prayer. I too am a nurse and I’m a mother of 4 daughters. And I know the struggles that can come as being a parent of daughters and I just want you to know that God is with you. He has never left you; He will never leave you, nor forsake you. And the enemy wants you to think that you are in this all alone but you are not. My prayer for you, is that you would not grow weary in well doing, that through these challenges that God is placing before you, that you show to all the image of Christ that lives and dwells within you. Father God, I just lift up my sister to you, Lord. I plea the blood of Jesus over her and her circumstances. I pray Father that You give her favor in the eyes of everyone that walks through her pathway. I pray for relationships to be healed, restored and renewed between her and her daughters. I pray You give her wisdom and discernment as she speaks those…those words to her children. I pray for financial blessings to be poured upon her, Father God. Open the storehouses of heaven and pour upon her such a blessing, Father, that she will not have room to even hold it. I thank You, Father, that You hear us, that You love us and that You would never leave us, nor for sake us. These things, I pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
