Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Yahweh, how I praise You that You are self-derived. You had no beginning and You will have no end. You are completely uncreated and though You take pleasure in Your creation, You are complete in Yourself. With the heavenly host, I praise He who was, and is, and is to come.
I thank You for raising me to life and coaxing me along to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that You have legally seated me in heavenly places along with Christ, far above all principalities and powers.
Father, since my citizenship is in heaven and I walk this earth as one of Your ambassadors, may my life show that my heavenly citizenship has my first allegiance. Although You expect me to fully participate in my civic and community duties, and although I confess I love my country, I put the cross before the flag.
Lord, I have a basket full of personal needs, including: __________. Meet these needs according to the riches I have in Christ Jesus.
Help me to resist temptation and the lures of Satan today.
I also pray for my lost friends and family members, including: __________. Father, please send Your Spirit to draw them to Yourself.
Today I pray for the Czech Republic. Although You have worked in great ways in this area in bygone centuries through the work of Jan (John) Hus and Jan (John) Komensky (Comenius), and although many people profess some form of Christian faith, others are atheistic, and those who do profess Christianity often do not have a personal, saving relationship with Jesus Christ. Oh, God, please bring great numbers of Czechs to saving faith in the living Christ.
Today we remember the Slavic Gospel Association. Bless this ministry as they minister throughout Eastern Europe.
Locally, Lord, we pray for our firefighters. Protect them, give them alertness, and may they serve our community well. We pray that You would use them to save lives and minimize damage.
Bless my day, Lord. Remind me of Your presence throughout it, I pray, in Christís Name, Amen.
