1 Chronicles 16:34
DayLight Prayer – Today on the day before Thanksgiving, I want to say thank you. I know that everything comes from you. Everything. Thank you, God. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure that somebody hid in a field, which someone else found and covered up. Full of joy, the finder sold everything and bought that field.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I pray for all of us who overlook the treasures around us; those of us who won’t even go into the field to look for a treasure, and who never find what you have placed there for us. Forgive us Lord for not trusting you to fill our lives with the abundance of everything we need and more…joy, love, hope, grace, and blessings! Treasures galore! Amen.
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for those called to proclaim the good news in places where they are not accepted, where their words are rejected and their lives made difficult because of their calling. God enter into the situations of proclamation, bring the Holy Spirit to bear upon hearts and minds. Place within every preacher the love of Christ and the passion of ministry, so that all may hear the good news. Amen.
Ephesians 2: 8
DayLight Prayer – Lord, What wonderful good news it is to know that we can be saved…from this life which is so full of suffering, trouble and death. You have given us a great gift, more than we can even imagine. Foolishly we consider that we can make ourselves alive through our own will…or our own possessions, or our own early bound being. Let us all rejoice that salvation is possible through faith in you. Let us not be fools. Amen.
Psalm 100: 5
Daylight Prayer – Faithful Lord and God, Only you know the depths of evil that reside in the hearts of people. I pray today for those in our world who have been injured and are suffering from evil acts. Lord, we pray for mercy and strength to persevere and seek justice. Lead us in the right paths. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?
Luke 15: 3-4
DayLight Prayer – Lord, How many times a day do we consider the lost sheep? Do we see them when we move from one place of focus to another? Do we think about them when we are eating our lunch, or getting our nails done, or walking across the putting green? Do we hope for them? look for them? find them and bring them home? Lord have mercy on us, and give us your heart…the heart of a shepherd. Amen.
Daylight Prayer – Lord, Today I pray for persons who need wisdom and understanding. I am certainly among them. Help us to think about the decisions of our lives with great care. Get us off the phone, tablets, tv, and computer and encourage us to use our own minds and hearts and hands. Give us your tenderness, love and mercy to share. Amen.
