Acts 5:12-13

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for all Christian disciples who are diligently ministering in your kingdom. Help them to continue even when they can’t see the fruit of their labors; when people talk good about them and when they talk bad. We all need your encouragement, so let us seek you for it and not look to the world around us for affirmation. Help us follow you and not the world.  Amen.

fishingDayLight Scripture –  Simon replied, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and caught nothing. But because you say so, I’ll drop the nets.” So they dropped the nets and their catch was so huge that their nets were splitting.

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Sometimes following your commands make little sense to us. Help us to see that when we are working on our own, the results are not always fruitful, but when you guide us…things will turn out differently. Renew our strength to continue on working, even when we are tired and really don’t make sense of your words. Help us to let down the nets for a catch.  Amen.
