Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Thank You that You fill all in all. Although You are separate from Your creation, You are present everywhere and although space is simply a created entity of Your pleasure, the entire universe cannot contain You, O Lord.
Thank You, Lord, that You created man in Your image. We humans are creative, personal, and spiritual. We have both a real physical component and a non-material component. You want us to love you with both components, with all we are: soul, spirit, mind, strength, and will.
Help me to resist the temptations and snares of the devil today. I claim the blood of Jesus Christ and the word of my testimony. I take up Your armor, O God.
Lord, help me to be a Christian who is known for being loving. May I look out for the interests of others, be considerate, concerned, and willing to lend encouragement and help. Help me not to simply think how people can benefit me, but also how I can benefit them.
I have a variety of personal needs in my life. I ask You to take away any guilt I feel, real guilt or false guilt. Help me believe that my repentance results in Your cleansing. You bury my sins in the depths of the sea, separating my iniquities from me as far as east is from the west.
Today I pray for the nation still known as Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro). There are only a few thousand evangelical believers in this impoverished Eastern European nation of 10 million people. Father, please multiply the number of evangelical Christians in this land tenfold within the next decade. Help the church develop strong leaders and a good testimony.
Father, today I pray for Janz Team Ministries, an independent faith mission that has just over one hundred workers overseas and in North America. Thank You for their work in mass evangelism and other forms of evangelism, including “Teaching English as a Foreign Language.” Give them unity, safety, provision, and the empowerment of Your Spirit.
Today we pray for those who inspect meat, agriculture, and other areas related to food safety and production. Help them to do a good job, and may the Christians in this field boldly share Christ with their coworkers. May many respond by turning to Christ.
Now, Lord, may I live in a way pleasing to You today, I pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
