Daily Prayers for Evangelical Believers
by Ed Vasicek
You are the Matchless God. Although Satan thinks he is hot stuff and although many of we humans think the sun rises and sets just for us, the truth is that it does—but for You! At our best, combined with all the saints and angels, we are not even a drop in the infinite ocean of Who You are. There is no comparison at all. That is why, when we reflect upon the reality of Who You are—and who we are in comparison—we are humbled and You are exalted. You have no real rivals. You are without equal, incomparable, our matchless God!
Lord, I have some specific requests to bring before You today. They are: __________.
Lord, I pray that You would protect my loved ones and I throughout our lives. Sends guardian angels to watch over us, I pray. Keep us from harm and evil of all kinds: physical, spiritual, mental and relational. Help me, and those close to me, to love You with all my heart, mind, soul, spirit, will and strength. Let all we are be laid before Your feet as a living sacrifice. May my integrity and value system be such that others know that I do not associate money with happiness, but I take seriously the command to owe noone anything except to share Your love.
Father, help me view my daily life—and especially Sundays—as times of training for Your service. The training never ends, for I can always be closer to You. There is always so much more to learn, so much growth to experience. Please do not allow me to rest on my laurels. And help me take advantage of the opportunities around me.
Lord, I remember the South American nation of Paraguay in my prayer today. Thank You for the 4.8% who claim to be born-again evangelical Christians, but, Lord, most of them are from immigrant colonies. The mainstream culture of Paraguay is in dire need of solid evangelical churches. Please, Lord, send laborers into the fields. Also raise up institutions to train leaders and help the immigrant believers to have a burden to reach their neighbors, I ask.
Thank You, my God, for the creative outreach of Infinity Sports as they enlist and involve “Christian sportsmen and sportswomen in international sports ministry.” They focus upon the many unreached people found within the 10/40 window. This means their focus is upon "North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, China and South East Asia." They seek to reach people in the "Gateway Cities" and within nations that restrict missionaries or even the freedom to share the Gospel.
Lord, bless this work and empower it by Your Spirit. Grant the workers harmony among themselves, protection, direction, provision and much fruit for their labor, I pray.
I remember those who work as automotive service technicians and mechanics. Grant them safety on the job, help them do their work well so that others are safe and may those who know You shine and share Christ.
Help me to shine for You today, I ask in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
