Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
How I praise You that You can be here with me; this is true no matter where I go. As the Psalmist put it, even if I go to the depths of the ocean, You are there. Indeed, You have long enjoyed the beauties of the ocean depths, beauties of which only a few men have sampled.
You are omnipresent, present everywhere. You are not merely ubiquitous—present in more than one place. No, You are literally present in every place at once. Yet, You are especially present when two or three believers gather in Your Name. You are present in a local way upon Your throne in heaven.
Lord, help me to fear You. Help me to remember that though You are my dearest friend—and knowing and glorifying You is the purpose of my life—I sometimes get too familiar with You. Though You are my friend, You are never just my “buddy.” Help me to strike the right balance between reverence and familiarity.
Lord, help my body to be healthy and strong. And help my loved ones to enjoy good health as well.
Lord, I am thankful for many things, three of which are: __________.
Today I pray for the country of Slovakia. Thank You that there are some evangelical believers in this land; help their small numbers to increase exponentially. Create a hunger in that land for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and may the believers there live out a Christianity worth reproducing.
Today I ask You to bless Spanish World Ministries. May their radio program, “El Camino De La Vida” continue to be used of you to reach many throughout Central and South America, as well as Spain and elsewhere. Help them to work well with the evangelical churches throughout these regions. Provide for them and protect them, we ask.
Today I remember our governor and his/her staff. May he/she execute his/her office with integrity, ethics, and do so in the best interest of the people of our state.
We ask Your joy to show itself in my life today, for I ask this in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
