DayLight Scripture – Call to me and I will answer and reveal to you wondrous secrets that you haven’t known.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, May you be praised because you always…always listen to my calling. I do not have to worry about what may happen, though I admit at times, I do. Help me to remember that there are secrets awaiting me… wondrous secrets yet to be revealed. Help me to call and fall into your love, each and every day! Amen.
DayLight Scripture – So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I so love this advice that Paul gave us via his Corinthian letter. I love it because I believe that many people think that you love mostly a person who is monk-like, who sits quietly and meditates on Scripture all day, and gives all their money to the poor. I know that you love that, but I also know you love jazz, reggae, and rap. You love oil painting and chalk drawings. You love medicine, teaching, and football. You like math, science, and great chefs. I know you love beautiful words, fine landscapes, and engineers. In fact, you made us to live glorious lives in your kingdom, loving, living and using the gifts you gave us. For that I’m and so grateful. Let all of us rejoice! We all don’t have to be preachers! Amen.
DayLight Scripture – But you, dear friends: build each other up on the foundation of your most holy faith, pray in the Holy Spirit, keep each other in the love of God, wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will give you eternal life. Have mercy on those who doubt.
Jude 1: 20-22
DayLight Prayer – Lord, My heart today is with all those who have discouragement and doubts. Those feelings sometimes haunt even the most faithful Christian. Life and people throw us curves and we wonder…Lord, what is going on? I pray for each one who is having a blue day, or may be depressed, or even sad. Bless them with your wonderful love and your faithful presence, so they will perk up in Spirit! Amen.
DayLight Scripture – I will make the blind walk a road they don’t know,
and I will guide them in paths they don’t know.
But I will make darkness before them into light
and rough places into level ground.
These things I will do;
I won’t abandon them.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I love these words of promise for all of us who are walk in the dark and feel lost. To hear you say you will not abandon me is the best news I or anyone can get. Lord, help me know this day of your plans, and help anyone who is struggling in darkness to remember that you have promised them…light. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – But when Peter saw how strong the wind was, he was afraid and started sinking. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.
DayLight Prayer – Blessed Lord, Today I pray for those who are in the midst of a storm and believe that they are sinking. I know the strength in your presence with them, so I ask you to be present with them and save them. Some may not even know they need you, but they do. Thank you Lord for every single time you have saved me. I am blessed. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – May the Lord be good to you and give you peace.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for anyone who is not experiencing peace in their life. I pray that you come in whatever form that will be helpful to them, and bring the peace that only you can. I bless your name for the peace and joy I have in knowing and living with you. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – He ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves of bread and the two fish, looked up to heaven, blessed them and broke the loaves apart and gave them to his disciples. Then the disciples gave them to the crowds.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, How is it that you can take such small things and make so much? Will you take the piddley bit of love I have within me, and multiply it like the loves and fishes…better yet, just fill me with your love! Amen.
DayLight Scripture – The thief enters only to steal, kill, and destroy. I came so that they could have life—indeed, so that they could live life to the fullest.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I’m ignoring the thief today. There is nothing that the thief can take from me since you Lord are helping me to hold on to everything. I love you Lord for how you love and protect me and bring me the best life, the fullest life, a life of love and grace! Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Examine me, God! Look at my heart! Put me to the test! Know my anxious thoughts! Look to see if there is any idolatrous way in me, then lead me on the eternal path!
Psalm 139: 22-23
DayLight Prayer – Lord, This day has brought me many blessing, of which I am so thankful. May you always know me, examine me and put me to the test, for I want to be what you want. Let me live with the light of Christ shining from me. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – You’ve made my days so short; my lifetime is like nothing in your eyes. Yes, a human life is nothing but a puff of air!
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Thank you for the moments of this day. I know that every one of them are dear, since I am only here for such a brief time. Enter into me, into my day, into my being, so that as I experience the moments of my life, they will be spent with you, my Lord and my life. Amen.
