Daily blessings and prayers from Scripture.

Hebrews 2:3-4 So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus Himself and then delivered to us by those who heard Him speak? And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.


Psalm 7:5-6  O Lord, You alone are my hope. I've trusted You, O LORD, from childhood. Yes, You have been with me from birth; from my mother's womb You have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising You.


1 John 4:18  There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.


Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on Your laws.


Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.


May you allow the work of the Spirit to have its way in your life, shaping, equipping, and placing the furnishings and tools for the work of the Lord in your heart, that you may be fully equipped and prepared, lacking nothing. 2 Chronicles 4, 2 Timothy 3


May you earnestly seek for, and gladly receive, the indwelling of the Spirit of God that He may take possession of, and be Lord over, your vessel of earth, setting His Name upon you for a witness to all and receiving glory for His power and lovingkindness evidenced in your life. 2 Chronicles 5


May you be dead to the law through the body of Christ so that you may belong to the One Who was raised from the dead and produce a harvest of good deeds for God. Romans 7


May you be released from the law by dying to what once bound you so that you may serve in the new way of the Spirit and not the old way of the written code. Romans 7


May you make your plea to the Lord in righteousness, knowing that He will give ear to your prayer since it does not rise from deceitful lips. Psalm 17


May your vindication come from God, for His eyes see what is right. Psalm 17


May you resolve not to sin by what you say, for then, by God's grace, you will be found to be mature and able to control your whole body. Psalm 17, James 3


My child, all shall know that I am the Lord. 

My people, whom I have called by name and claimed for My own, who have willingly embraced My name and My nature, walking in My redemption, will accept the work of the Spirit in laying aside the old self, and will receive the renewed mind of Christ, putting on the new self created in righteousness and true holiness. As you grow in your love for Me, which is a reflection of My deep and abiding love for you, the laying down and casting aside of your old way of life will not be painful, but will be an expression of your joy at gaining the acceptance and approval of the Father through Me.

The people of the world, though they have the witness of My creation in all of nature, do not seek in their hearts to know Me. They will still come to the knowledge of who I am, for as they are led and influenced by the spirit of this world to resist My will and My work as it is done by My people, My outstretched arm against them will reveal the truth of My presence and glory. I will make a distinction between My people, those who bear in their hearts My law and the scars  of their willing submission to the circumcision by My word, and those in the world who have not yet submitted, neither bowing their knees nor confessing with their mouth the truth of who I am. 

The judgments that I bring upon the earth, thundering over their heads, darkening their skies, destroying their profits and taking what they hold dear will be sent in mercy to awaken their spirits to their danger, raise questions in their heart about the lies they have been told, and give them one more chance to seek Me. When they do, My child, remember that I have placed you where they can find you; do not condemn them, My dear one, or despise them, but in pity toward them, testify of Me in loving truth and accepting compassion. 

Do not fear the expressions of My control over the earth, the weather, the seas, the water on the land and the plants of the field, even the systems of man with their finances, products, technology, and communication, for I am drawing the final harvest of those who will turn to me, dividing the sheep from the goats. Know that My convincing power will go forth over all the earth, and My Holy Spirit will speak to all hearts through the declaration of the gospel, until all nations bow themselves at My name and call Me Lord.


May you keep yourself by the Word of God from the ways of the violent and, by following God's ways, your steps will not slip. Psalm 17


May you call on God to show the wonder of His great love by saving you with His right hand and giving you refuge from your foes as He gives ear to you and answers your prayer. Psalm 17


When the wicked assail you and your mortal enemies surround you, may the Lord keep you as safe as you would protect the pupil of your eye, and may He hide you in the shadow of His wings. Psalm 17


May you be rescued from the wicked by the sword of the Lord as He rises up to confront them and bring them down, for their reward is in this life only. Psalm 17


May you awake in righteousness to see God's face and be satisfied. Psalm 17


May you rest content as you find life through the reverent fear of the Lord. Proverbs 19:23
