DayLight Scripture – I have other sheep that don’t belong to this sheep pen. I must lead them too. They will listen to my voice and there will be one flock, with one shepherd.

John 10:16

DayLight Prayer – Lord of Heaven. Hear the prayers of all your sheep today. Those in the pen that we wander around in and also those in other pens. I know that your love is such that sometimes you speak to each of us in ways that only we can hear you. Make it that we all hear your voice and fall beneath your saving grace. Amen.

and to present you blameless and rejoicing before his glorious presence,
to the only God our savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord,
belong glory, majesty, power, and authority,
before all time, now and forever. Amen-

Jude 1: 23-25

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today my prayer is for men and women who are on battlefields. Some are there by choice. Some are there by force. Some are there because they have been told that it is their duty or station in life. I pray for each one. I pray that your presence protects them, indeed that you keep them from falling…falling prey to overwhelming fear, boredom, hate or apathy. Help each one Lord know and remember that they are yours and as such are protected and loved by the one whose glory, majesty, power and authority is above all other things. Amen.

Fireplace_BurningDayLight Scripture – Also, whenever God gives people wealth and riches and enables them to enjoy it, to accept their place in the world and to find pleasure in their hard work—all this is God’s gift.  Indeed, people shouldn’t brood too much over the days of their lives because God gives an answer in their hearts’ joy.

Ecclesiastes 5: 19-20

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Thank you for the tremendous blessings you have given me. Today I am particularly thankful for a warm, safe place to live. More than enough food and clothing. I pray for those whom you help in these times. Help me Lord to have more compassion, and let me be generous with all I have.  Amen.

Magi_tissotDayLight Scripture – When they saw the star, they were filled with joy.  They entered the house and saw the child with Mary his mother. Falling to their knees, they honored him. Then they opened their treasure chests and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Matthew 2: 10-11

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Unto us a son has been born, a light for us to see, a blessing for all people. God thank you for the witness of wise people, who have risked life and lost life for the sake of your gospel. Had they not been willing to live sacrificial lives, then I would now sit in darkness, not knowing that you have made a way out of it. Amen.

DayLight Prayer – Sweet Lord, the Good news you have brought us today has blessed my heart. I know there are people who have stopped even looking for good news. That is sad, and I pray for them. No matter where I am, always send it, cause I’ll be looking for it and needing. You know I am always thirsty!  Amen.

DayLight Scripture – My dove—in the rock crevices, hidden in the cliff face— let me catch sight of you; let me hear your voice! The sound of your voice is sweet, and the sight of you is lovely.”

Song of Solomon 2:14

DayLight Prayer – Lord, I love the gentle words of Solomon as he describes the delight of love. I thank you for endowing us with the ability to know and feel love. If we were merely biological, sprung from the elements, successful diversities that “made it,” then I believe the ability to hold hands in joy, feel compassion, experience desolation, and even harbor ill would evade us. But we are more, we are your creations, made in your image.  Help me today to be more like you, living into my perfectly created nature, loving as you love. I pray in Jesus’ name.

thVDN43PVBDayLight Scripture – Haven’t you heard? I set this up long ago;planned it in the distant past! Now I have made it happen,making fortified cities collapse into piles of rubble. Their citizens have lost their power; they are frightened and dismayed. They’ve become like plants in a field, tender green shoots, the grass on rooftops, blasted by the east wind. I know where you are, how you go out and come in, and how you rage against me.

Isaiah 37:26-28

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Some days my whole self seems like it is raging, not so much against you Holy one, but against existence. Some days, the world just chews and chews on the ones I love, and I just can’t stand it. Thank your Lord for showing me that no matter what is going on here, you have it all covered…covered by the blood. Amen.

Thank you for this new year. Amen.
