1 Samuel 15:1-16:23, John 8:1-20, Psalms 110:1-7, Proverbs 15:8-10

Today is the 14th day of May welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it is great to be here with you as we bring another one of our weeks to a close together. So, congratulations on that. We were looking out over this week just a week ago saying it was all new and how we have lived it and told the story and we just keep moving forward together. And, so, let’s do that. We’re working our way through the book of first Samuel and immersing ourselves in the life and times of Israel’s first king, king Saul. Today first Samuel 15 and 16.


Father, we thank you for your word and another week as we continue this journey and make our way into the center of another month. And we just keep moving day by day and you keep speaking, day by day through the Scriptures, through the guidance of your Holy Spirit, through the fellowship of brothers and sisters around us. We thank you. We thank you for what you have begun to speak to us in the book of first Samuel as we look into Saul’s life and as we watch and be more concerned with his image than with who he actually is or could be. May that be our story Father we pray. May we be image bearers of the most high God, and nothing else. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:

Hi Daily Audio Bible it’s Laura Lee in Boynton Beach I’m calling in to encourage and pray for Jeremiah in Michigan, Giver of Good Gifts. Jeremiah, I totally want to ask the Lord to continue to empower you to walk out that simple step of obedience to reach out after a season of boundaries that needed to be…I come from a lot of abuse, a lot of manipulation, control, greed, all of that. And with my mom having the dementia now that…that unforgiveness tries to raise itself up against the will of God __ nothing to love Him. And that looks different with parents, it looks different with siblings. And I just…Lord, heavenly Father You are able, and You are willing, and You will guide and strengthen each step of what that looks like. We have given up our rights to hold anyone accountable against what they do to us and we’re not responsible for their change but when they see what You’ve done in our lives may it be a great witness of Your great power, Your love, Your mercy and Your strength to do what reconciles, what restores, and what empowers love, which is always sacrificial because Your Son and His sacrifice and Your sacrifice of giving Him to us and the work of the Holy Spirit. All of that on our behalf when we didn’t deserve it, nor could we earn it. So, yes, I pray You bless the meeting with his parents. I pray that his parents have open hearts and open minds and open eyes in Jesus’…

Good morning DAB my name is Jesus I’m calling from South Florida and this morning I am calling on a prayer request for my sister Jones from upstate New York. She called for the prodigal children. I myself and in a waiting time and trusting God that He will bring my daughter back home. The situation at home where my wife and her couldn’t get along and that’s our daughter, that’s our blood daughter and she left…and she left, and she has been out of contact with us for a while. But anyway, sister Jones from upstate New York I am thankful that you called. Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you. And I want to thank you so much sister Jones for having the heart and patience and trust in the Lord God that he would bring your children home. My children also, my daughter also has two boys and a girl and but she also knows the Lord and was just derailed by the ways of this world, you know. I pray…I pray for all the parents especially mothers who patiently wait on the Lord in the name of their prodigal children back home. And the Lord will give us the trust that we need and help and the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to pray not just for our needs for the parents that are waiting on the return of their children. Dear God oh Holy Spirit you’re the one left behind to guide us. I pray that you’d be the lead that we need, the guidance that we seek. As you hold within us the trust that we need to have in God to know that one way or another whether our children come back, may they just be safe in his presence God. I pray this with my heart wide open and…and thank you sister Jones for upstate New York for bringing your message and may the Lord guide your children back home…

Dear family and friends this is Heather from California. Just wanted to let you know couple things. First, my husband Dike who’s been at the hospital in rehab for a month, he’s coming home tomorrow praise the Lord thank You Lord and thank you for praying for us. And pray for him to be able to get home and be relaxed and help us with the caregiver and, yeah, that the Lord will watch out for Dike because I have a long room with my mom. Praise God her white count has got up. But we do have some issues that are going on with her liver now. The enzymes are pretty high. So, we need prayer on that that the enzymes…that the medicine works so that way she doesn’t have to be off of chemo for too long. And, so, I’m just so thankful to you guys. I can’t even sign you how blessed. Like 13 weeks has been so crazy and it’s gonna be crazy still because…anyways…it’s been crazy because my husband’s gonna be here and I gotta go take care of my mom and thank God for my sister-in-law Becky that she’s gonna help me with my mom because caregivers are very expensive. Oh, my goodness. Thank You Lord for family. I just want to let you guys know that I get up every morning and read with you guys, so I feel like I’m not alone. And I know that God is always there and always with me, and my family and I just want to tell you guys how much I love you. And thanks Brian. You are the best bud. I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate your daily “I love you. We’ll see you tomorrow.” Thank you, guys. Love you.

Hi DAB family this is Joanna from this Pacific Northwest, and I am on a sick day today which is actually kind of nice. I’m just sitting at home drinking tea and listening to the DAB. And this morning I was struck by just how beautiful this community is that we’re from all different backgrounds and cultures and political sides and whatnot but we all can come together on our love for Jesus and our pursuit of His word and I just…I love that. So, I just wanted to pray and encourage you all this morning. Jesus thank You so much that Your…Your community is founded on I love for You Lord. Thank You that You have blessed You us beyond what we see in this world, beyond the limits that our culture and our understanding of each other has but Lord Your Spirit comes in unites us. You give us love and peace and joy and gentleness for each other. You give us healing and insight and such tenderness and compassion from You that we can share with each other. So, Jesus I’m just so glad to…so glad follow You, so glad for this community and for my church community. And we just praise You this morning Jesus. I pray this in Your name Lord. Amen.
