Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
Thank You that You are a God Who plans. Before the world was founded, You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, planned that God the Son would become a man in the person of Jesus Christ and offer Himself as the Lamb of God. He is the "Lamb slain before the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8).
When the fullness of time came, right on time, You sent Your Son, born of a woman, born under the Law (Galatians 4:4). At the right time, Jesus shall return to reign. You are a God who makes plans.
Lord, I am thankful for many things, three of which are: __________.
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.
Thank You that my Savior is interceding for me, Father, at Your right hand. He is my advocate, my defense attorney who defends me against Satan's accusations. He is my high priest and mediator, the One Who represents me to You. That is why I pray in Jesus' Name.
So. Lord, help me be a prayer warrior, someone who prays informally during my day and is always ready to offer up a prayer.
Lord, I need You to watch out for my physical and material needs as well. Help me manage my resources well, and open and close the right doors.
Today I pray for the African nation of Cameroon. Thank You for the recent growth of evangelical churches. Lord, You know how corrupt this nation is, and You are aware that many who profess to be Christians are not genuinely converted. Help Your true children to stand strong. Provide much-needed training for church leaders, and help the newer evangelical churches to set a standard that will challenge the older, compromised churches.
Thank You, Lord, for Latin America Mission (LAM). They serve in a variety of ways, from "...friendship evangelism to theological education; medical relief to youth camps; church planting to children-at-risk work; office management to micro-enterprise development; personal counseling to emergency response." Bless their many missionaries, help them to get along well with one another, keep them walking with You, may their families be strong. and empower them with Your Spirit so that they may bear much fruit. Provide for all their needs.
I remember our nation's school bus drivers. Please give them safety and wisdom, and may many come to know You.
Now. Lord, be gracious to me today, I pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
