Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
My wonderful God,
I know that You are a God of joy. You bring joy to those Who know You, and You are the source of joy, happiness, and contentment. Your Word commands me to rejoice in You because You are a happy God. We will celebrate the wedding feast of the Lamb with You, and at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. You are the only source of lasting joy. The world and the devil offer their temporary versions, but their counterfeit joy will one day turn into mourning. My joy will grow greater and last without expiration.
Father, thank You for adopting me—of all people—into Your family! You have given me Your name and all the rights that accompany this adoption. I will share eternity as a companion and brother of our Lord Jesus Christ. Although He is the unique Son of God, something I will never be, I will still be, nonetheless, family!
Lord, help me to be a social person today, to enjoy relating to others. You want me to love others, but I cannot love them if I do not participate socially with them in some way. Help me to converse in a way that pleases you. May I make others feel comfortable by my presence.
I have many personal needs, including the need for good health. Please bless me this way, 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 pray for the nation of Bahrain, not far from Saudi Arabia. Although Bahrain has a mixture of religious groups, only a bit more than 3% are born again Christians. Particularly bless the Christian radio and literature outreaches. I pray that the number of believers would double within the next few years. Pour your Spirit out upon this nation with a population of about 1.3 million.
I remember the radio and literature ministry of Back to the Bible. Thank You, Lord, for this Scripturally-based teaching and outreach ministry. We know that these broadcasts have had an impact in helping to disciple many of your children in solid doctrine. Provide for and guide this ministry, I pray.
We remember nurses today in prayer. They have a stressful job, but we so appreciate them when we are recovering from surgeries or illnesses. Bless them, and may many come to know You.
Help me stand firm for You and Your will in my life today, I pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
