Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Dear Holy Spirit,
We praise You and appreciate Your work in our lives. Although You focus us upon the Lord Jesus Christ, we know that You are the active Agent behind so much of the Christian life. You convict us, regenerate us, baptize us into the Body of Christ, fill us, and empower us to fulfill the will of God in our lives. You create a hunger in us for God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. You give spiritual gifts to us as You will. You lead us into truth and whisper to us that we are the children of God. You are our down payment and Your seal provides us with Your security.
So, Holy Spirit, stir us up, motivate us, and continue to conform us to the character of Jesus Christ. Change us day by day, little by little.
Lord, help me to become more dependent upon You to help me do what I cannot do alone. Help me become a person of faith, a person who trusts You with the details of life. Help me view my life as an adventure with You, and to be willing to walk through those open doors. Do not allow me to cower in the corner, strapped by fear.
Father, minister to my body. Help me to be healthy, if this is Your will. Help me to discipline myself and to take care of Your temple, my body. Help me to become a person known for moderation and balance.
Please address the following needs: __________.
Today I remember the small Latin American nation of Anguilla. Although many of the people on this island know You, there is little concern for missions or cooperation among the Bible-oriented churches. We pray that you would help the believers to reach out both locally and, through missions, around the world. Help the Bible-believing congregations work together for the common good.
Today I remember the Christian Veterinary Mission as they help third world people learn skills that will provide more food and prosperity to these impoverished people. Help them as they offer this help with the Christian message included. May many come to know Christ, and may You be glorified through this labor of love.
Locally, we pray for those who organize and lead our street and highway departments. Help them to do a good job in keeping our roads safe and passable. Continue to use them to save lives.
Fill me with Your Spirit today that I might glorify You, I pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
