Daylight Scripture – The Lord isn’t slow to keep his promise, as some think of slowness, but he is patient toward you, not wanting anyone to perish but all to change their hearts and lives.
2 Peter 3:9
Daylight Prayer – Lord, thank you for your patience with me. I know that I probably get on your last nerve! But you are always kind and willing to hear my moaning and groaning. I love you Lord, because I know that you will always be willing to wait for me, and that you are willing to wait for us all. Glory be to your name. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – Exalt yourself, God, higher than heaven! Let your glory be over all the earth!
Daylight Prayer – Gracious God…because you have given us this lush and beautiful planet for our home, I thank you. Because you have loved us continuously and fully, I thank you. Because you have forgiven us when we have done the most horrible of sins, I thank you. Because you are God, I give you praise. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – Conduct yourselves with all humility, gentleness, and patience. Accept each other with love.
Daylight Prayer – Oh God, would it be that we could follow these words of the apostle! No longer would there be so much strife and turmoil in our lives. Lord, if I stray from this wisdom today, correct me. If I hope for anything but the best for anyone, correct me. If I lose your spirit of love, correct me. Lord, I pray. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep! They are as mysterious as his judgments, and they are as hard to track as his paths!
Daylight Prayer – Great God, Guide me today in your great wisdom. Help me to see as you do…the world around me. Show me how to love people who aren’t so lovable. Let me be a witness to you in such a way as to lift a spirit, calm a fear or light a path. I pray in Christ’s name. Amen.
Daylight Scripture – I sought the Lord and he answered me. He delivered me from all my fears.
Daylight Prayer – Lord, It is amazing to me just how afraid people are these days. So many of the fears we have are baseless, particularly when we know that you are with us at all times. I am so grateful that you carry my fears and cares when I am at my wits end. Thank you for giving me the strength to seek you when I feel afraid. Freedom from fear is life! Amen.
Daylight Scripture – Who can live in your tent, Lord? Who can dwell on your holy mountain? The person who lives free of blame, does what is right, and speaks the truth sincerely; who does no damage with their talk, does no harm to a friend, doesn’t insult a neighbor;
Psalm 15: 1-3
Daylight Prayer – Lord, I suppose David could not imagine that you would come to dwell is the tent of your children. I am so grateful that you have. How else can I keep the commandments you have given unless you are there to guide and empower me? I praise you for the Spirit that you have anointed me with. Help me to strengthen that connection to you and your ways every day. Amen.
