Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
How awesome is Your creation. Like the Psalmist, when I consider the work of Your hands—the stars, the moon, the sun—it makes me wonder how You could even pay attention to me. You are the Creator of all, and Your handiwork evidences Your genius.
Thank You that You care about me—and even the tiny details of my life.
Father, thank You that You have called every believer a saint, a set apart one. Thank You that You have made all New Covenant believers priests. We can approach Your throne directly through our great High Priest, Jesus Christ. We can also help connect lost people to You by sharing the Gospel with them.
Father, help me learn to check in with You first before I make decisions, especially important ones. I have known Christians to move to another location, switch jobs, churches, and employment without waiting on You for direction and guidance. So, Lord, help me remember that if I am going to be in Your army, I need to check in with headquarters. Remind me that I am not my own.
Help me to resist temptation and the lures of the Satan today.
Meet my needs this day, father; help me to use my resources of time, energy, and money wisely and in a way that pleases You.
Today I remember that part of the United Kingdom called Northern Ireland. Thank You that the conflict there has subsided and that peace seems to be reigning. May it continue that way. May Christians shine their light, and may the evangelical church there double in size over the next decade.
We also pray today for the Messianic Jewish movement. We know, Lord, that some Messianic groups are more in tune with a proper understanding of Scripture than others, but many of these groups are solid. Help them in both reaching the Jewish community and in creating interest in the Jewish roots of our faith so that we might better understand Scripture.
Use me this day to serve You, I pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
