DayLight Scripture – Jesus traveled among all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, announcing the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness.
DayLight Prayer Lord, how wonderful to read about how you traveled, taught, and healed every disease and sickness. I pray today for people who are suffering from cancer. Sometimes when people hear that word, they give up. Send them more courage, and more hope that you are the almighty healer. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Is my strength that of rocks, my flesh bronze?
DayLight Prayer – Lord, today I know that there are many who are feeling that they are at the end of their strength. They want to cry out to you, but fear their prayers won’t be heard, much less responded to. Lord, I pray for those desperate ones, asking you to speak to them in ways, and through people so that they can be encouraged to seek you, call out to you, and trust you. Amen.
DayLight Scripture –Because of the grace that God gave me, I can say to each one of you: don’t think of yourself more highly than you ought to think. Instead, be reasonable since God has measured out a portion of faith to each one of you.
DayLight Prayer – God of heaven, forgive me when I think of myself more highly than others. I know that your love extends into all places, into all hearts, into all situations. Help me to be more like you and consider the whole and not just the part that I may see of a person’s life. Help me to accept that there are things I’ll never know about another person, and help me to extend grace when I don’t understand someone’s behavior and words. Help me to remember that you have surely gifted us all differently, and my gifts are no better than another’s. Forgive me for judging. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – The Lord is my shepherd. I lack nothing.
DayLight Prayer – Thank you Lord, for the great blessing to rest in the peace of knowing that like a good shepherd, you are providing all my needs…All of my needs, even those of which I do not know. Help me Lord to share with others from the bounty of my life. Oh great God, I bless your name today. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Come and see God’s deeds; his works for human beings are awesome.
DayLight Prayer – Today I am so thankful for the beauty that surrounds me. You have made this earth into an incredibly wonderful home for us. Thank you God for the sky, the soil, the sun and the rain which provides us nourishment and peace. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Mighty gates: lift up your heads! Ancient doors: rise up high! So the glorious king can enter!
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Open the mighty gates of my heart, and enter in. Today I pray for all who have slammed the door in your face. Those who have been hurt, or are tired, or frustrated with the way things are going. I pray Lord that your sweet loving Spirit will swoop into them, and give them the grace to let you back in…or even in for the first time. God I bless your name because you are mighty to save. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for all of us whose faith wobbles at times; when we do not see how a situation, a conflict, an outcome can ever change. I know that all the faith I have comes directly from you, so I pray for you to instill more faith in me. Help me see the potential in situations and in people. Amen.
