DayLight Scripture – Jesus was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests, the legal experts, and the foremost leaders among the people were seeking to kill him.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for all people who are being persecuted for teaching and proclaiming your gospel. I know that the evil one would like for your name to never be mentioned, to never be alluded to, to never come up. Instead, let your name be proclaimed, and let the proclamation be protected from evil. Your good news is to vital too be hidden. The good news is that in you there is freedom from fear and death, forgiveness of sins, and life everlasting. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – When you search for me, yes, search for me with all your heart, you will find me.
Jeremiah 29: 13
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Who among us is searching for you? Is it the child who is hungry, or the mother who is homeless, or the man who is on the brink of losing his family’s home? Whether we know it or not, all that we need is found in you, but some of us refuse to search for you. Oh God, help us. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – “Now is the time! Here comes God’s kingdom! Change your hearts and lives, and trust this good news!”
DayLight Prayer – Lord, If only we could grasp the truth, we would be changed totally by it. Yet each of us wants our “own” truth before we can believe. I pray for your kingdom, that it comes in our hearts with the power of the knowledge that through you we are one, sisters and brothers of your great kingdom. Help us to intentionally study, adopt, take-on, feel out and live into all you have created us to be. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Create in me a clean heart, God; renew in me a resolute spirit.
Psalm 51: 12
DayLight Prayer – Gracious Father, Look deep within me, and show me the truth of my soul. Where I need revision, repair, or reality, place it within me. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Jesus is God’s way of dealing with our sins, not only ours but the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2: 2
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I am so grateful for Jesus because my sins are many, and I need an advocate like him. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – So put to death the parts of your life that belong to the earth, such as sexual immorality, moral corruption, lust, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry). The wrath of God is coming upon disobedient people because of these things.
Colossians 3: 5-6
DayLight Prayer – Lord I know that many of us do not often think about ourselves in negative terms like immoral, corrupt, lustful, greedy and filled with evil desire. But, in many small ways these sins lurk in our hearts and lives. Forgive us, and fill us with the Spirit of Christ. Awaken us to our need for repentance. Amen.
DayLight Scripture –“I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, so you also must love each other. 35 This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, when you love each other.”
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I pray today that you help us all with keeping this commandment. Help me to love others like you have loved me. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – The crowds were murmuring about him. “He’s a good man,” some said, but others were saying, “No, he tricks the people.”
John 7: 12
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I pray today for anybody who is struggling about placing their faith in you. When they have doubts, as everyone does, send people who can make clear that you are not a trick, a slight of hand, or but that you are simply our savior. Help them, Lord, to accept you for who you are, the savior of all creation. Amen.
DayLight Scripture –Look at how good and pleasing it is when families live together as one! It is like expensive oil poured over the head, running down onto the beard—Aaron’s beard!— which extended over the collar of his robes. It is like the dew on Mount Hermon streaming down onto the mountains of Zion, because it is there that the Lord has commanded the blessing: everlasting life.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today my thoughts are with those whose families have been robbed of their loved ones through tragic events. I pray for the family who has suffered in this way. Give them the comfort of your peace, Lord. Help them to be blessed by the memories of their loved ones. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today take my life and help me to worship you, to honor you, and to praise you with all I do. You only are worthy of our worship. Amen and amen.
