DayLight Scripture –

People surround me with hateful words and attack me without cause; in return for my love, they accuse me, but I continue to pray.

Psalm 109: 3-4

DayLight Prayer –

Dear Lord, Sometimes I wonder what you think of the attacks that come to those who are trying to follow you; who are attempting to live the righteous life you desire amid this world of skepticism, apathy and lust. Do you simply wait for our prayers of deliverance?  Then…let us pray!  Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

Those who cling to worthless idols forsake faithful love.

DayLight Scripture –

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Luke 6:37

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, I see it now–if I don’t judge, I won’t condemn. If I don’t condemn, then what will need to be forgiven? Help me today to keep my feelings off of my sleeve and in check. Prevent me from making judgments that lead to condemnation and unforgiveness. Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

Those who live with integrity live securely, but a perverted life will be revealed.

Proverbs 10:9

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, How is it that we forget that you know everything about us. It is certain then that our personal and secret “trash bags” are going to be opened up one day and all our mess will be laid out for review. God help me to need only the smallest Hefty bags, and not the bit black lawn bags! Keep me from making such big messes that my trash will need to be raked and hauled by trucks! Amen.

Everything is permissible, but not everything is helpful. Everything is permissible, but not everything builds up. No one should seek his own good, but the good of the other person.

1 Corinthians 10: 23-24

Gracious God, How often I forget the proper ways to use the freedom you have given me. Help me today to react to everyone in a manner that is pleasing to you–putting others before myself, being helpful and encouraging. Amen.

Lord your faithful love reaches to the heavens and your faithfulness to the skies.

DayLight Scripture –

What is a human, that you consider him, that you care for her? You made humankind lower than angels for a short time; crowned them with glory and honor and subjected all things to them.

Hebrews 2: 6-7

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, How indeed is it that you have made us? I struggle with so many issues and complaints. I see so much that could be made into good. I know of so many hardened hearts. Help me to see and know that you value me–that you value each of us. Let me live into your minds design. Amen.
