Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
You are a personal God. Lord, You are three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yet You are one God. One God with three Personalities, yet of the same essence. We say these words, but they are beyond our comprehension. But that should not surprise us: if we could understand You, our theology would be suspect. Certainly You must very different and very much above us! Yet, You are, in many ways, like us. Yet You possess characteristics often extended out to infinity. We have some power; You are infinitely powerful. We know some things; You know all things.
And, as a personal God, this means that You can relate to us. You have intellect, emotions, a will, and You are creative and spiritual.
I am grateful to be among the three categories of beings that has true personality: You (God), angels (both holy angels and fallen demons), and we human beings. Help me not to neglect my spiritual nature; that is such a big part of what it means to be personal.
Lord, help me to respect the institutions that you established. Help me do what I can to lend support to Biblical marriage, family, government, and ethics. I pray that you would strengthen marriages and families throughout our world, country, and area. Especially bless those with whom I have contact and influence.
Please address the following needs: __________.
Lord, today I pray for the Cayman Islands. We know that this is a wealthy area, with freedom of religion and many evangelical Christians. We pray that the churches would be strong, and that the believers there would not become entangled with prosperity, but that they would focus their hearts upon you. We are grateful that over a fourth of the residents are born-again; we pray that their number would grow to 40 percent within the next decade.
Father, I pray for Tech Team, an important missionary agency that supports so many others by providing "...technical expertise in engineering, construction, design, landscape design, graphic design, display and brochure design, computer networking, software development, furlough vehicle leasing and website design and development..." Lord, this, then, frees up your other servants to spend more time harvesting the fields. Oh, Father, provide for this vital ministry in every way, and use them by Your Spirit.
Today we remember construction workers. Many of them know You, but most do not. So, Lord help the Christians to bear good testimony, and use them to draw in the net. May an evangelistic surge break out in the construction trades.
So, Lord, I commit my day to You. Use me, I pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
