1 Kings 22:1-53, Acts 13:16-41, Psalms 138:1-8, Proverbs 17:17-18
Today is the 20th day of June welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I’m Brian it is a great to be here with you for the next step forward in our journey through the Scriptures as we bring to the close another one of our…our weeks together. We’re working our way through the book of first Kings right now and we are dealing with the king of Israel in the North, Ahab, and his story. And, so, we’ll pick up where we left off yesterday. We’re reading from the New Living Translation this week. First Kings 22.
Father, we thank You for Your word. And again, we thank You for another week. And they…they go by. It seems like we wink, and they go by, but they don’t. They go by day by day, second by second, minute by minute, that’s how they go by and Your presence in our lives is a constant. And often we’re…we’re not paying attention to that but it’s a constant. You will never leave us or forsake us. So, for all of the moments of this past week whether we acknowledge them or not, You’re present to us and we thank You for that and we have the assurance that that will continue, actually that that will continue forever and ever and ever and ever. And, so, may we rest in that. As we move into the end of this week and prepare to embark on another week, we rest in the fact that You are present. And, so, often the things we get ourselves into that are difficult and hard and challenging, we got ourselves there and we blamed You for it because You were present to us. But Your presence doesn’t mean that we can’t act on our own. You have given us this kind of permission to have a will of our own and we can go Your way or we can go whatever way we want to and…and we will reap the repercussions of that. And, so, we want to walk with the You in this coming week. Come Holy Spirit and lead us into all truth we pray. In the name of Jesus, we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Good evening DAB this is Blessings Flow in Pennsylvania. First, I wanted to greet everyone in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and especially thank my brother Stanley in Maryland. Thank you so much for putting my prayer song to music. I was shocked and deeply, deeply encouraged and blessed for reasons there’s no time to share, but I just wanted to thank you for that. Thank you for sharing your gift. And I wanted to pray for our brother whose wife on May 19th they lost their little baby girl when she was 36 weeks pregnant. I have just been sighing and praying and sighing and praying in the Spirit for you because there are no words and I just want you to know that we’re praying for you, that we love you, that we’re surrounding you, that we’re holding you up, we’re remembering you right now. And Lord together as a family we pray for our brother and our sister in this time of loss, in this time of grief. Lord that You would be near the broken hearted to bind up their wounds, that they would know Your nearness, Your closeness, Your strength. Lord strengthen them with might in their inner man. Be with them as they cry, be with them as they ask questions, be with them as they sit in silence. Just be with them Lord and let them feel the love that surrounds them with this community and I’m sure their church and family as well. We ask this in Jesus…
Hi family this is Salvation is Mine in San Angelo California I hope everybody is doing well in self and in place. I do apologize that it’s been months since I have called in. I want to shout out for people here. Pelham I was listening to June 3rd and heard that you finished your program. Congratulations on that and that you actually have other people in the program want to go with you. So, that’s a great accomplishment in itself, that you have such an influence over people, other people in such a good way in such a positive way because they want to follow you and I pray that all of that works out for you. I want to also send out prayers for Terry…Terry or Jerry, I’m not sure, I apologize, who called in in regards to his addiction to porn. That was very brave. I really do applaud you, brother. Also, let’s not be fooled, women have an addiction to porn as well. I think sometimes we are just left likely to ask for help with that. So, I’m praying for men and women and children who are showing signs of being addicted to those types of things as well, that the Holy Spirit will come upon them and release them from that. I want to pray for the gentleman who called in said his mom is sick and he lost his marriage. I want you to know brother that you have people on this DAB line that are praying for you and praying for your mother. Excuse me…and praying for your marriage if that’s what God wants. This is salvation is Mine in San Angelo California. I hope everybody’s doing well. Bye-bye.
Good morning this is Trusting Father in South Carolina it’s Monday, June 15th and I just want to first of all tell you I love you. I’m reaching out because I am up super early, and my heart is heavy, and I know yours must be to. We…we know that there’s of course with all that’s going on right now in our country and really all around the world with the…the fight against racism and injustice. Christ in us helps us to understand that there is something seriously wrong and we need to make things right and I am all about that, but I also recognize that the enemy is really just having it…I don’t even know how to put it into words but…he is having his way. And y’all we’ve gotta be really really careful. There’s so many voices screaming and the enemy are using…the enemy is using those voices and we need to be mindful that there’s that one still voice that we are to stay very in tune with and that’s Father’s voice. And the only way to do that is to get up early in the morning and…and spend that time alone with him and just meditate upon his truth so that when He speaks to us we can be quick to hear His voice above all the other voices. And Father we know that there is so many…so many souls that are crying out. They need Jesus and that’s the bottom line. And, so, holy Father please help us not to miss those opportunities to love on those who are screaming out for You and You hear their cry and know…
Good morning DAB family this is Donald __. And anyway I called from South Sudan in East Africa. I…I did not want to make this recording. I didn’t know what to say but I as I took my walk this morning, I heard God say make it a praise report. I want to praise the Lord because my younger brother went home to be with the Lord. On Friday night he was murdered. He had somebody went to his house. An assassin killed him gruesomely because he was a believer. He’s a medical doctor in the northern state of __ in Nigeria and we are from the Eastern part of Nigeria and we are all Christians and my brother is a strong believer. So, the praise report is that in Enook, Dr. Enook Ophara is now before the most high God. Those who thought they have harmed the family did not know they have sent him home. I would have preferred that he went home in a very respectful manner but God __ this, I trust him. May His name be praised. May His name be glorified in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Good morning Daily Audio Bible listeners this is Alisa Marie from Dinuba California. I’m calling today’s 15th of June and I’m calling in regards to my brother in Christ that called on the 12th, I believe he called himself Wisdom Calls My Name from Northern California. Brother when I heard your call I was just drawn to…to your…to your request. So, I’m going to say a prayer. Dear heavenly Father we come before You and we bring our brother in Christ, Your son before You Lord. You know he’s been battling with his diabetes for the past 20 years and O Father God we can hear it in his voice and in his heart. The decisions he has made and some wise and some not so wise but Father God we know You still love him and now he’s reaching out to You and he’s asking for healing. So, I ask You that by the mighty name of Jesus that You would touch his body. We call his body into alignment with the word of God, everything in his blood system come into alignment with the word of God. Father You say in Your that You send forth Your word which is Jesus and You healed His body and You delivered His body from all destruction. So, I stand in agreement with our brother, deliver his body from the destruction of his diabetes in the name of Jesus. There is nothing impossible for You Father God. So, we call upon Your name and Your mercy and we ask You to bring healing and wholeness from the top of his head to the soles of his feet. In the mighty name of Jesus. And these next results Father God I pray that they would be good results Father God. I ask You in the mighty name of Jesus. And we’re gonna give You praise, honor and glory ahead of time for healing our brothers body and bringing him to wholeness. In Jesus’ name. Amen. Be blessed.
Hello beautiful DAB family this is God’s grace for Japan which is my prayer for Japan. I’m calling in, what’s today? The 15th. I’m a little bit behind and I was listening to the 12th’s prayers for the broadcast and I’m calling to speak and say thank you to I believe John. I hope I got that right that your name is John from South Sudan. Sir, thank you so much for your words. I needed them today. I needed them this week. I live in Japan as an American and I’m…as we’re all dealing worldwide with this intense conversation about racism and the dehumanizing of people from other ethnicities and other races and I’ve been having conversations with friends in America who try to insist it’s distinctly an American problem…this is an American thing. And, so, the way that we deal with it doesn’t have to apply to the rest of the world and I’m trying to have this conversation to tell them that, no we’re actually dealing with it here too. And the reason it’s a worldwide thing is because we are all made in the image of God. And to dehumanize a person based on race or ethnicity is to commit a sin against their humanity and the image of God in them. And, so, I just needed your words because you reminded me that…because I’ve been exhausted, I’m so exhausted and I know we’re all exhausted having these conversations and trying to do what we can do. I had almost forgotten that this is a spiritual war we’re fighting as well, that there are forces trying to destroy the human race. And thank you for your words, thank you for your encouragement. Please pray for us here in Japan. It’s hard here too. But thank you so much brother in South Sudan and my whole DAB family. Your voices are what’s keeping me going. Bye-bye.
I’m actually on the phone with my son. I’m currently incarcerated and I’m looking at a lot of time and I was looking for some prayers so I could get a second chance at being a father the way that I should have been. And my child’s mother it is currently staying in a shelter, so I also need some prayer to maybe…I don’t know…help her get herself situated and have that figured out while I’m not out there to help. You want to ask for anything son? No, I’m good. Alright. Well that’s all I’ve got thank you and have a blessed day. Can you hang up for me Robert?
