Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Great God and King of Kings,
I worship You as the Infinite One. You, O Lord, have no boundaries. You fill the entire universe, and Your attributes are extending outward toward infinity. Just as we never run out of numbers, so neither are Your attributes exhausted nor You power limited. When we consider the billions of stars, some of which are actually galaxies whose light combines as though they were but single stars, we have to admit that we cannot comprehend the vastness of the universe. But, You, Lord, are so much greater, just as infinity is greater than any number.
Today, Lord, I praise You for my coming bodily resurrection. I know that, at death, my soul shall be immediately ushered into Your presence, but my body will decay unless I am alive at the time of Christís return to the sky and thus avoid death. Then my body will be resurrected to become an immortal body, like that of the resurrected Jesus.
Lord, help me to develop humility. You command me to humble myself before You, but You also want me to be humble in my dealing with others. Help me to not look out for only my own interests, but the interest of others.
Lord, I empty myself before You so that Your Spirit may fill me. I find my strength in His power, not my own. May Your Spirit control me today.
Dear God, I ask You to help me get along with my neighbors. Help me not only to be at peace with them, but to develop a positive relationship with them. If they do not know Christ, use me to reach them, I pray.
I pray for my lost friends and family members, including: __________. Father, please send Your Spirit to draw them to Yourself and grant them the repentance that leads to life.
Today I remember that part of the United Kingdom called England. O Lord, at one time so many knew You there, but the percentage of evangelical Christians has significantly dwindled. May Your Spirit once more sweep across that land. May the number of evangelical Christians triple in the next decade, and may their level of commitment deepen.
Dear God, bless Bible Related Ministries as they seek to rescue divided churches. Provide for them; give them success for the sake of Your body.
Today I remember the chief justice of the Supreme Court. Bless him/her, and help the chief justice to fear you, to seek truth and objectivity, and to use his/her position for good as You define good.
Shower me with strength and joy today, I pray, in Jesusí Name, Amen.
