DayLight Scripture – If one of your relatives—even one of your own siblings—or your own son or daughter or your dear spouse or best friend entices you secretly, if someone like that says: “Come on! We should follow and worship other gods”—ones that neither you nor your ancestors have experienced, gods from all the neighboring peoples, whether nearby or far away, from one end of the earth to the other— don’t give in to them!
Deuteronomy 13: 6-8a
DayLight Prayer – Merciful God, When I am tempted to pledge allegiance to any other than you, break in. Redirect my waywardness and thwart my thoughts. Return me to your steadfast love and forgiveness. In this world that is so rife with things to worship, I can be dragged away so easily, actually so can we all. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – So I’ll offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to you, and I’ll call on the Lord’s name.
Psalm 116: 17
DayLight Prayer – Lord, today I am thankful for my family, my friends, and my loved ones, these riches that you have blessed me with. Bless each one today I pray. Amen.
The one who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving is the one who honors me. And it is to the one who charts the correct path that I will show divine salvation.
DayLight Prayer – I am so grateful Jesus for you. What would my live be without your grace? What end would I have? Where could I get any hope? Who would rescue me from death? How could I love or be loved? Jesus, thank you for what you have done. Amen
DayLight Scripture – “Allow me to be baptized now. This is necessary to fulfill all righteousness.” So John agreed to baptize Jesus.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, today I thank your for my baptism and ask you to help me remember it as I watch the cold drops of water fall from the sky. Let me be warmed by your Spirit this day and be cheered by your presence. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – How long, my Lord, will you watch this happen?
Rescue me from their attacks; rescue my precious life from these predatory lions!
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I know that some of us feel as though we are being eaten by lions, especially on a Monday. So Lord, remember us in your mercy. Rescue us from all that tries to destroy our life and witness. Set us up on the high place that is near to your heart, where our lives are safe and our souls are content. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Much gold and many pearls exist, but wise speech is the most precious jewel.
DayLight Prayer – Great God. You have made me glad to have had a vacation. You gave me rest, relaxation, fun, and time to think. May I be able to gain strength and peace from your blessing of Sabbath days, and able to give to you the fullness of my work and life. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – God revealed his hidden design to us, which is according to his goodwill and the plan that he intended to accomplish through his Son. This is what God planned for the climax of all times: to bring all things together in Christ, the things in heaven along with the things on earth.
Ephesians 1: 9-10
DayLight Prayer – Graceful and wonderful Lord, Today I am blessed with your concrete words, the plans you have made, and the revelation of your goodwill. Let me be a witness to your good work in Jesus Christ that has established the fullness of grace for us all. Help me to continually rely on your Spirit to guide me through the valleys I travel. Make me aware of your presence and inform my heart of your love. In Christ I stand, amazed, blessed and free. Amen.
