DayLight Scripture –

Then Eve and Adam both saw clearly and knew that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made garments for themselves.

Genesis 3:7

DayLight Prayer – Seeing clearly has always revealed my nakedness, Lord. I don’t use leaves for a cover up though. My clothing of choice is busyness. Help me to be able to overcome my need to hide by letting you cover me with your mercy, love and forgiveness. Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

Worship the Lord, people of God! Praise your God, kingdom of God!
Because God secures you; God blesses the children you have.
God establishes your boundaries peacefully. God fills you full with the very best food.

Psalm 147: 12-14

DayLight Prayer – In the midst of my plenty, I often overlook the poverty. Lord help me today to be aware. It is a truth that others in the midst of plenty can be complete bereft of your Spirit.

DayLight Scripture –

The jailer called for some lights, rushed in, and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He led them outside and asked, “Honorable masters, what must I do to be rescued?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your entire household.”

Acts 16: 29-31

DayLight Prayer – Lord, today I thank you for the many men and women who have served on behalf of others. My prayer today is that you will bring peace to the world; that you will save us and our families. May there soon be the day when the need for protection from one another will be superseded by peace between one another. Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

Jesus said to them, “Go, tell that fox, ‘Look, I’m throwing out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will complete my work.

Luke 13:32

DayLight Prayer – The third day. What an amazing day that was Lord! I remember the story of how Mary came to the tomb expecting to find your lifeless bruised body. Honoring you she expected to clean it, wrap it and prepare it for burial. She expected her tears to dim her sight, her broken heart to be ground into powder, and the day to end in complete darkness. But. You. Had. None. Of. That!!! You were up and about…and finished with the work…just like you had told that old fox you would be. Thanks be to God for the power, freedom and joy of the resurrection!  Amen.

My brothers and sisters, think of the various tests you encounter as occasions for joy. After all, you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

James 1: 2-3

DayLight Prayer – Many days Lord are just a test of our endurance. Will we endure that cross word? Will we endure that harsh stare?  Will we endure that crazy driver? That sassy child? That tongue-wagging mother-in-law? That empty bank account? Yes we will!! We will endure because you are with us. Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

Don’t be glad for great luxury,
and don’t be made needy by an encounter with it.
Don’t become poor
by feasting with borrowed money when you have nothing in your pocket.

Sirach 18:32-33

DayLight Prayer – Lord,  I admit that I enjoy all the luxuries that I have in my life. They are many. Help me to share with others the blessings that I have, and help me to resist living beyond my means in frivolous spending. Teach me to check myself when I spend to see if my purchase is both necessary and good. I fail at this a lot. Thank you loving God for the help! Amen.

1 Peter: 2:17a

DayLight Prayer – What an awesome way to live…honoring everyone. Lord, I know that many days I dishonor people by the way I think of them, the way I react to them,  and by the way I dismiss them. Forgive me Lord. Help me to see and respect people as those whom you love and those whom you died for. Give me a higher vantage I pray. Amen.

his ears listen to their cries for help.

Psalm 34:15

DayLight Prayer – I am blessed to know God, that your eyes are watching me. You know what is coming at me, and so you rush to my side. How else would you hear the silent cries of my heart… unless you are near.  Today I claim the promise of this verse for my own. I will go out of my house in the confidence that you have my back…my sides, top, bottom and my front. To God be the glory and the Amen.
