Joshua 11:1-12:24, Luke 17:11-37, Psalms 84:1-12, Proverbs 13:5-6
Today is the 15th day of April welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it is fantastic to be here with you today as we gather yet again around the Global Campfire and take the next step forward and bring another one of our weeks in for a landing together. We have been working our way into the book of Joshua, which we will continue today with chapters 11 and 12.
Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for another week. We thank you for your faithfulness in our lives. We thank you for your patience with us. And as our hearts are transformed by this rhythm of being in the Scriptures each day and applying them to our lives, we come to the same place that the psalmist came to, “a single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else.” We would rather be the gatekeeper. We would rather be the servant simply doing our duty in the house of our God then to live in the good homes of the wicked. You are our treasure. You are our hope. You are our protection. You are our God. There is no other above, below or beside you. You are the most-high, and we love you. Come Holy Spirit. Lead us through this day, lead us into the new week we pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Community Prayer and Praise:
This is Brandon from Texas calling first for Justin in Memphis. Justin, I appreciate your call and glad you’re back with us. I’ve shared on here before my story of being in a similar position to yours. And I began praying every day that God would get everything I thought I knew about Him out of my mind so I could discover who He actually was and read through the New Testament praying that prayer each day. Not sure if that’s the path for you but I know it was very helpful for me. And I finished and and felt like I had found truth and dispelled some things that I would call religion versus spiritual relationship, religiosity or…or whatever. But anyway, Lord I just I come alongside Justin and…and ask Lord just as he did that You lead him to truth. He just…he just wants truth Lord and…and like all of us he needs You and we only find truth through…through the direction of Your Spirit Lord. So, I just come alongside my brother Justin and ask that You lead him to truth. I know Lord that Your word promises if we seek we will find and You honor Your word and just ask that You help Justin find. It’s in the name of Jesus i pray. Amen.
Good morning it is Monday April 10th, and this is the Lord is my Strength and My Song calling in to pray for a couple of the DABbers that called in this morning, Justin and Garrett. And Justin said he didn't…wasn’t sure what he believed. He…he’d gotten away from listening to DAB for a few years, but was back and Garrett asked for prayers and help in he…what he believes and depression and other issues. Lord, I pray for these men. They’ve come to You in their wandering in the wilderness and desert and not feeling Your presence and not seeing You in their lives and being under attack really. And I pray. You promised that if we ask in Your name how will You not pour out the Holy Spirit and give us what we need. So, I pray that You would lift up these two, Justin and Garrett this morning. Fill them with Your Holy Spirit. Let them see the light of Your glory and let Your love fill their hearts that they would know You Jesus love them, died for them, was raised, and sit in heaven and are making a way for them in this life and forever for all eternity. I give thanks and blessings to You Lord Jesus and ask this in Your name.
Hello DABbers, this is Emily of Emily and Jim and Cardiff and I’m calling for the little brother who called and said that he’s struggling with his faith and he misses Jesus. And we pray for him. And I just want to say I am so proud of you. Why am I proud of you? Well, because you don’t call the Daily Audio Bible podcast and think people are gonna pray, oh i hope you find your home in Buddhism. You know we’re gonna pray for you to experience the lord Jesus afresh. We all have doubts. It’s happened to us in our journeys. I’ve had times where I’ve experienced God’s holiness in ways I can’t describe. And yet there are times where I think, well, are you real? That is OK because Jesus is still real, and He longs to be with you. He misses you. So, I’m going to pray for you right now, little brother. I’m sorry I don’t remember your name. But Father God, I thank You that Your word is a light to this brother’s feet…feet that it’s a lamp, it’s a light unto his path. Lord, I thank You that You love him with an everlasting love Lord, that he…that even if he feels like that one little lost sheep that You leave the 99 and You go get him. So, Father I pray and the name of Jesus that he would experience Your love, Daddy’s love, Abbas love in these coming days Lord. I pray that he would experience Jesus and Lord that You would open his eyes to see how good and…and sweet it is to be in Your presence, to…how good and sweet You are and all these other things, all these other distractions are just distractions. And I bless him, and I thank You for where You’re taking him on his journey in the name of Jesus. I love you little brother. Bless you.
Hello DAB family, my name is __. Like to go by Seeking the Abundant Life. I’m calling because I am married to a Muslim man. We’ve been married for about two years, and I have kind of…I guess I've…I’ve started to lose hope or passion for seeing him come to Christ and have gotten kind of focused on just the day-to-day things. I’ve recently started a new job which I’ve made more demanding than it really is. Kind of allowed it to be my god. And over the past week I’ve been convicted about spending more time giving my best to work and not giving my best to home and to God and I’ve just felt far from God as well. And, so, I am calling in prayer for renewed passion for God, my relationship and intimacy with Him. I’ve had a hard time just even sitting down and reading the bible. I’ve listened but just for my own self and for my own prayer life of my own spiritual life. I’ve just not really been showing up for myself in that way and similarly for my husband as well. And, so, I’m just calling to ask you all to join us on this journey and thank you so much. You all take care. Bye.
Good morning on this beautiful Easter Monday. I’m a beloved Christian who periodically finds myself needing to once again release to God my forever singleness. It is a great joy to know that I am Christ’s bride and yet there’s perpetual pain in never having experienced the human relationship that paints the picture of this glorious relationship I have with Jesus. It is a great joy that I cling dozens of children my own and yet there’s a nagging ache in my heart knowing that I do not have primary responsibility for any of them and knowing that I most likely will not marry while my body still has the capacity to bear a child. And, so, as an extension of wanton discipline this Easter time I feel cold once again to release to God my hopes and my dreams to daily ask Him to transform my hopes and desires to be only for Him. So, please join me in praying not only for myself but for the many who earnestly feel called to a Christ centered marriage yet have never felt called to develop this relationship with any particular person. So, let us pray. Lord Jesus, we love You because You first loved us. Help us to seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness even and especially if the way that You are working does not line up with what we think we know about You and for what we think we know about Your ways. Restore to us the joy of Your salvation. In Your name we pray. Amen.
