Joshua 24:14-15  Joshua said, “Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve him wholeheartedly and faithfully. Remove the gods that your fathers served in the region across the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if you see no benefit in serving the Lord, then choose for yourselves today whomever you will serve—whether the gods that your fathers served beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and…

Isaiah 9:2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. For those living in the land of the shadow of death, the light has dawned. Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that your light will shine on all people. We live in this world filled with the darkness of sin, and we walk in the shadow of death every day. Moreover, as we live in an information age, we pray that this message of your light will shine on…

1 Peter 3:15-16 But regard the Lord, the Christ, as holy in your hearts. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that is in you. But speak with gentleness and respect, while maintaining a clear conscience, so that those who attack your good way of life in Christ may be put to shame because they slandered you as evildoers. Dear Lord Jesus, Our hope comes from you; you…

Romans 5:9-11 Therefore, since we have now been justified by his blood, it is even more certain that we will be saved from God’s wrath through him. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, it is even more certain that, since we have been reconciled, we will be saved by his life. And not only is this so, but we also go on rejoicing confidently in God through our Lord…

John 4:13-14 Jesus answered her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I will give him will never be thirsty ever again. Rather, the water I will give him will become in him a spring of water, bubbling up to eternal life.” Dear Heavenly Father, You made water a necessity we must drink to sustain the physical body. However, when Jesus was at the well with the Samaritan woman, he pointed out that…

1 Timothy 6:20-21 O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, turning away from godless, empty talk and the contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge.” By professing it, some have veered away from the faith. Grace be with you. Amen. Dear Heavenly Father, We thank you for sharing Paul’s letter to Timothy with us. We are often challenged with overthinking and rationalizing our faith, especially when the world comes against us, trying to fill us with doubts. “The…

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving us these words of comfort; for those who are faithful to you, you work everything out for our good. We might think we know what we need and often tell you the result we want. However, you answer when we call according to what is best for…

Romans 10:14-17 So then, how can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one about whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without a preacher? And how can they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news of peace, who preach the gospel of good things!” But not all obeyed the gospel. For…

Matthew 16:13-17 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But you, who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for flesh and blood…

Ephesians 2:17-19 He also came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household. Dear Heavenly Father, It is unbelievable that through faith, Jesus has made us not only citizens but members of your household. When I look…
