Today is the 20th day of October. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. It’s great to be here with you today as we do what we do every beginning of each new week. We walk into the threshold and see that it’s all sparkly and shiny and just waiting for us. Nothing has gone wrong. Nothing has gone right. The week is here for us to make the decisions and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and how well we do that will determine how this week goes. And one of the ways we do this is this rhythm that we have. We continue to allow God’s word to speak to us each and every day. And, so, off we go into this brand-new week. We’ll read from the English Standard Version this week and continue our journey through the book of Jeremiah in the Old Testament. Today we’ll read chapters 35 and 36.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for bringing us here into this brand-new week as we continue our journey forward. We thank You for Your faithfulness. We thank You for Your steadfast love. We thank You for Your mercy and Your kindness and that You have adopted us into Your family and that we are Your children. It’s unspeakably good news but it’s also mind blowing when we slow down enough to understand who we are on this planet because of You and what that means to how this week should be lift. So, come Holy Spirit into that and lead us into all truth, lead us on the narrow path that leads to life. Illuminate our steps we pray in the name of Jesus as we trust in You. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hi guys this is Cherry from Oklahoma. Suicide keeps coming to the forefront it seems. I want to share a story. Back last February I found out we had a water leak here and I had a job, was only home two times a year. I traveled 48 weeks out of the year. So, trying to fix that from afar, I spoke to a man that works with the water company and during that phone call he shared that his wife had just told him, his wife of 26 years had just told him she wanted a divorce. And then rolling forward from that point about four months down the line from February, he was heavy on my heart one night and I felt like I needed to call him, but I wrestled with it for a quite a while but then I finally did. __ And when he answered he was very distant and cold and just, you know, a touch of rude and I didn’t understand but I still told him what God put on my heart and then a couple weeks ago, I’m back home now because I quit the job, and there’s another water leak. Thankfully it’s on their side. So, they come out. A guy comes to my door. He introduces himself. It’s him. And he apologized for being rude and then he takes his sunglasses off and he looks me deep in the eyes and he said, “I want to thank you for saving my life.” And then tears started streaming down his face and he explained how he was sitting there by the lake when my call came through, 26 Zanex in his hand getting ready to pop them in his mouth. And he said, “if you had not called me, I would be dead right now.” And he goes, “I am so thankful.” He said, “that was his darkest moment in my life, and I would be dead if and I didn’t…I don’t want to die.” And he’s like, “I realized after you hung up God wanted me to live.” So, hey guys there’s a joy in the morning. Don’t give up. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on.
Hi this is Victoria Soldier just calling tonight to pray with some of the DABbers. I wanted to pray for Shay for the UAU workers who are on strike today. I also want to pray for my brother Aaron from Oklahoma. I want to pray for Leslie from Washington. She’s dealing with some concerns. And I want to pray for Melissa and our children and their purity and their concerns with Christ. Gracious Father, I praise You today Lord. I magnify Your name. I glorify Your name. I first want to lift my heart out to Aaron. Aaron my heart goes out to You. Nothing is worse than…than the seeing and knowing things of this nature. And God is the one who revealed it and he reveals it for a reason. And I thank God that You have a heart like I did where You wanted to come back together. Lord, You touch him Lord. You touch that wife and that wife’s heart. Oh Lord and let her see what she is missing Lord because sometimes the enemy wants us to turn from what we have is good because we know what we have is good, just something that looks like it might be edible. Oh Lord You have Your way. You open up her eyes Lord. You deliver her soul Lord. In the name of Jesus, You deliver her soul and You touch Aaron Lord. You give them the desires of his heart. You give them what You would have for him Lord and let him know regardless of the incident that God always has something else for You. Oh Lord You have Your way. In the name of Jesus, I ask You to touch those going through this…this layoff Lord or this picketing. Lord I ask that You come in the midst Lord and You have Your way. You give them exceedingly above or more of what You can ask or think. Oh Lord we ask that You touch our children Lord…
This is Candace from Oregon. I would like everyone who’s listening please pray with me in Jesus’ name on behalf of Tom who called in on October 8. Lord we thank You for our dear brother Tom and we join with him in a desperate plea Lord to ask You to intervene and let his wife return to full health, his 66-year-old wife. Lord, we know that You can do anything. So, cover him and his dear wife totally in Your peace, drenched and in Your love and please heal and restore her Lord. We ask this along with Tom in Jesus’ name. Encourage him, encourage them both. Lord, I pray that You would encourage my son Micah. I pray that he would no longer have any panic attacks. I pray that he would be able to do his job search with renewed confidence and that You will, in Your grace and mercy, go with him every step of the way in Jesus’ name I ask it. Thank you, my Daily Audio Bible friends. I love you all so much. Candace from Oregon.
Good morning this is Heidi Daniels calling from California Central Coast. I am asking for prayer for my family. We have four grandkids that are little, two seven-year-olds a six-year-old and a three-year-old that have moved in with us and the last two that we just added has causes, you know, some adjustment period and we just discovered that one of them has sexually and appropriately touched the three-year-old. Oh my God… And we need to know what type of response for his sake. Oh my God, oh my God Jesus…Jesus Jesus…Jesus Jesus Jesus…Jesus Jesus Jesus…
