Isaiah 8:1-9:21, 2 Cor 12:1-10, Ps 55:1-23, Pr 23:4-5
Today is the 11th day of September welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I’m Brian it is a joy to be here with you today as we bring another week and our adventure through the Scriptures to a conclusion. And we are working through the book of Isaiah at this point in the Old Testament. Today we’ll read Isaiah chapters 8 and 9.
Father, we thank you for your word and we thank you for all of the different complexions and nuances that we get to encounter, all the personalities, all of the families, all of the geography and history, all of it coming together to shape and form us. And, so, as we continue through our journey in the days ahead through Isaiah, second Corinthians, and Psalms and Proverbs, every day there is something for us. Some days we search because you’ve hidden it like treasure for us to find. Someday it’s sitting there like a nicely wrapped gift just waiting for us to open and insight pours into our hearts, giving us clarity and direction for the choices that are facing us. And we are so grateful for your kindness, the kind gift of the Scriptures, the kind gift of your Holy Spirit’s guidance in our lives. And, so, come Holy Spirit and lead us forward, we pray. In the name of Jesus, we ask. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
Hello, my sweet DAB family this is Ashley from California, and we live in a scary time right now. There is so much turmoil and scariness going on. And I just wanted to share with you all something I stumbled upon and it’s talking about the simple secret of trusting God and it’s talking about how to do that and how you learn to trust somebody is by spending time with them. And the way that we spend time with God is spending time in His word, listening to His voice, praying listening to worship and fellowship with other believers. And, you know, I just want to tell you that the DAB does that for us. We’re able to spend time with God in his word through listening to it, we pray with each other in community and on our own volition and then we get to worship God through these acts that we’re doing. So, I just wanted to let you know that we can live on the promises and not on explanations through this time that we spend together each day. And, so, we can trust things like when Jesus says do not be overcome by the world, but he’s overcome the world and we will have the victory. So, even though it’s scary right now everybody just keep chasing God. Choose to chase after Him and spend time with Him and get to know Him and listen for Him and pay attention to His presence. Alright y'all. I love you and have a great rest of your day. I am praying for you. Bye.
Hi DAB family this is Charlene from Akron OH. I had asked for prayer on the prayer wall back on April 25th I think it was due to my mom being admitted to the hospital. But anyway, she had passed on April 30th and I just never called to give an update and a lot of it was there was just so much I wanted to share but I had to narrow it down. There were so many God moments that were they’re at that time. There was the day before she was admitted to the hospital her last Facebook post had read when we draw the last breath only one thing will matter that our name is written the lambs book of life. Another thing that had happened to was us receiving thank you cards all at different times that she had sent out also the day before she was admitted to the hospital. And in a time when only my dad was allowed to see her we all knew different medical staff members from EEG tech to MI tech to nurse practitioner and the ICU doctor. And to know one of them would have been a miracle but to know four different people was just really comforting. And while we were making funeral…funeral arrangements my brother had remembered that she loved Psalm 91. And we decided to use that to represent her life. And when we came home to my parent’s house the Bible that she keeps open on the foyer table was open to Psalm 91. It’s been four months now. My dad is just struggling even though he knows it was meant to be. He’s lost 22 pounds since then and he just said even though he enjoys our company I know he feels a lot of emptiness. Just please continue to lift my dad up in prayer as he is…as we are all grieving this loss. Thank you so much.
Hello, my name is Imani Norman I’m 26 years old. I’m just coming on here. I’m new to this I’ve never done this before, but I’m just coming on here because I would like to have some prayers said for me. I’m going through financial hardship and the financial hardship that I’m going through is causing me to be delayed with like school and all of those things. It's…yeah…it’s like keeping me from a lot of things. And I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been a little bit sad about it. So, I just need some uplifting, some good prayers. I’ve been saying prayers too and talking to God. I just need a little more strength because this has been really, really hard. And I’m not sure what else I can do. It’s out of my control so I’m leaving it up to God. But if you can…if you can see a prayer for me that would be awesome. Thank you.
I wanted to call in for the little girl who…or the little child who called in asking for prayer because they were afraid but they didn’t want to be. Our father in heaven Lord we’ve all been in places like this where we’re afraid and we don’t know what to do. Lord I ask that you would remind this child of your word in the psalms, when I’m afraid I will trust in you. I ask that you would give us all the strength to do that especially this child right now in Jesus’ name I ask. Amen. I hope you’re encouraged by this prayer. And trust the Lord with all of your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding and that goes for me too.
Hi daily audio Bible this is Andy from Birmingham I wanted to share a quick verse which is Colossians 2:79. Have you roots planted deep in Christ. Grow in Him. Get your strength from Him. Let Him make you strong in the faith as you have been taught. Your life should be full of thanks to Him. And I’ve been thinking about that today because I’ve been digging up plant roots and these really strong plant roots are so hard that she broke two of my forks. It took me the whole day but they were really small plants so I said it doesn’t make sense, but the roots are so strong. So, I guess I felt like just calling in saying that maybe there’s someone out there that needs to hear that about these strong roots that can’t, you know, when, you know, think about when our lives we’re under attack, if you’ve got your strong roots in Christ then that's…that’s important. And again, in another version it says let your roots grow down into Him and let your lives be built on Him then your faith will be strong the truth we are taught and everything with thankfulness. Si, I hope that’s a blessing to someone today.
