MONDAY—EVANGELISTIC PRAYER Chronological Bible Reading: Proverbs 21-24 Monday, June 4

TUESDAY—FOCUS ON CHRIST’S MIRACLES Chronological Bible Reading: 1 Kings 5-6; 2 Chronicles 2-3 Tuesday, June 5


WEDNESDAY—REVIVAL PRAYING Chronological Bible Reading: 1 Kings 7-8; Psalm 11 Wednesday, June 6

Prov. 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;

John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Hosea 14:3 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

Lord Seeking the Lost:

I see people standing outside in summer like wild rabbits in the field:

Everlasting and Eternal Father of Lights:


insecure, and self-conscious of their vulnerability and natural defenselessness. So they burrow for security. Help my heart chase after them! Those hiding ones. They are weak and exposed to danger. As I speak, make them wise to seek

shelter in the Savior. The best security is in the fortress of an unchangeable God, and his unconditional sacrifice for sin. There, unalterable promises stand like impregnable rock walls. It will be well with my soul, but only if I hide myself in the castle of Christ’s character, a guarantee of safety for everyone who puts their trust in him. I thank you Lord, that I have done so. Many times I feel like David in the cave of Adullam—alone, but sequestered with you and safe from cruelty of my haters. Long ago when Satan and sin chased me, I ran to make my house in the cleft of the rock. In Christ’s split side and spilt blood I found a resting place!

It seems sometimes my world is dark as midnight, but Lord you came so I

could see by the light of faith. I thank you Father, I no longer have to sit in the gloom that covers the rest of mankind! Whosoever is a really wide word. It means me and everyone in our ministry, and everyone I work with, and everyone in our community. If I trust in you I will no longer sit in darkness. Why should I stay in darkness? I have a “free pass” by

Holy God and Heavenly Father:

Help me throw off all self-confidence and trust only in you. When a child is abandoned without its natural protection, you step in and become its guardian. So also when I lose every foothold and every handhold, I throw myself back on you and find everything I need. The fatherless are cast on the fatherhood of God as their father, and you provide for them. Help me hang onto the bare arm of God. No faith is so well supported by facts as faith in Jesus. No trust is so certain to be rewarded with results as trust in the invisible but ever-living God. Some children do have fathers, but are no better off because of them. And the fatherless are rich when they have God. So it is better Lord, that I have you and no other friends, than it would be for me to have all the contacts on the planet and no God. To be lonely and lacking relationships with human friends is painful, but to be left by God is true loneliness. As long as Jesus is my fountain of mercy I am not alone in this life, and I thank you. Psa. 41:9-10 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me… Lord, I must find mercy in you and you alone. The more needy and helpless I am, the more confidently I appeal to your loving heart. My need is the basis for my request. My pitifulness is the basis of my prayer. Give me revival today in my relationship with you. Do that especially when other sweet earthly relationships end because, Song 5:16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved,

grace into eternal sunshine. Lord, help

the works of darkness and come out into your marvelous light this day! Right now I may be under the shadow of a cloud, but I do not have to stay there in darkness. Jesus came to dispel it, and he did not come in vain. If only I have faith I have the privilege of both sight and sunlight. Help me enjoy it today and lead others out of darkness—out of the darkness of their hopelessness, of their willful ignorance, of their gripping doubt, of their fearful despair, of their destructive sin, of their irrational dread. Jesus comes to set us all free! He no more comes in vain than the sun rises and fails to scatter the night. 2 Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:



Help me shake-off my depression (it is the hurricane season) and abide not in the dark. I want to move higher into light. In Christ is my hope, my joy and my heaven. Help me look only to him today and this summer, and rejoice. These things I ask because Jesus died to save, and he now gives me light. Amen.

Lord, I pray


would run to you this week!

Whatever their heart hurt or woundedness may be, Jesus feels for it; Jesus will comfort it; Jesus will help. He truly heals the brokenhearted. In Christ the weak are made strong, and the insecure given safety. Faith gives me, here on earth, the protection of God in heaven. I cannot need more, and should not want less. Rabbits cannot build a castle; they can only take advantage of that which is already provided by God. Help the lost I witness to this week see they cannot build themselves a refuge, but Jesus already provided it for them. The Father has given it. The Spirit has revealed it. Help them Lord, to enter receive for Jesus’ sake and to his glory. Amen.

A DAILY PATTERN FOR PRAYER & BIBLE READING Chronological Bible Reading: 2 Chronicles 4-7; Psalms 134; 136 Thursday, June 7

FRIDAY— CORPORATE PRAYER MINISTRY Chronological Bible Reading: Psalms 146-150 Friday, June 8


SATURDAY—IN THE PSALMS Chronological Bible Reading: 1 Kings 9; 2 Chronicles 8; Proverbs 25-26 Saturday, June 9

1 Cor 7:8-9 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry:

Rev. 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Psa. 49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

MORE love to Thee, O Christ, more love to Thee! Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee. This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to Thee; More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

Blessed God—Father, Son and Spirit:

Only Wise and Mighty God:

We worship you with all our heart and adore you. Lamb of God we pay you reverence, casting all we have at your feet. We do not have a crown (or even much silver or gold), but such as you have graciously given we make available to you. We are content in the knowledge everything is ours, as long as it is first yours. And it is all the more ours when we completely yield it to you. Jesus, we wish we could live for you more completely, with no distractions and no secondary directions into which the streams of our lives flow. You are everything to us, so make everything about us consecrated to you. We ask for pardon through your blood. We are already saved, but give us a new sense of it, so we can make other people want it. Have pity on those who have never yet been pardoned. Hear their cry as sinners when they seek your face! Wherever there is the beginning of repentance, send us with the whole gospel. Give them the complete picture of the cross, and of Christ suffering for them. Let forgiveness be felt by anyone who places their sin on Jesus. Next we ask you to subdue our iniquities. Conquer the power of sin in all your saints. Give us grace to live above it. Do not let the lusts of the flesh, or the pride of our mind bring our spirit into subjection. Make our spirit rule over our thoughts and discipline our body. Make Christ rule in our heart by faith so we can know how to, † Gal. 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Do it for Jesus’ sake and your own glory alone. Amen.

Everyone wants wisdom. Since I have to appear before the judgment seat of Christ someday, help me pay attention to anything that will make me more prepared. Make it the meditation of my heart today!



Once earthly joy I craved, sought peace and rest; Now Thee alone I seek, give what is best. This all my prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee; More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

SPIRIT. He moves. I want to listen so well I can transmit his signals to others. Help me me obey his promptings immediately. Psa. 49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?


Let sorrow do its work, come grief or pain; Sweet are Thy messengers, sweet their refrain, When they can sing with me: More love, O Christ, to Thee; More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

throughout this life. The evil that tries to trip me up, or slow me down, often overtakes me. In some dreary part of the road ahead, Satan will grow stronger and bolder. Often Lord, he gains on me and then openly attacks—through my family, my coworkers, or friends. What then? Time to turn coward? God forbid! What are all my foes but tools to prove my steadfast trust in you? There can be no reason for me to be afraid if my heart meditates on wisdom. Even my greatest enemies are too insignificant to be worthy of my fear. When I contrast my Rock with theirs, it is foolish to be afraid! They brag very loudly, but I can only smile. I glory in you Lord, and have no reason to be frightened by Satan’s threats. Great strength makes wicked men proud to do evil. I stand before you in humility, pleading your strength as my only trust. I do so in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Then shall my latest breath whisper Thy praise; This be the parting cry my heart shall raise; This still its prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee; More love, O Christ to Thee, more love to Thee!


—Elizabeth P. Prentiss, 1856

no more spontaneous than written-out prayers. The result is we end up praying the

you can know that on any given day, dozens of other people are lifting their hearts in
the same mind to God. Pray what is written, but use what is prayed as a springboard
for your own relationship with God. You learn to pray by praying.

Basing beliefs and actions on the mind of Christ (your church relationship in
the Word)
“Oh,” says one, “I live in the spirit of prayer, and therefore I do not need times
and seasons for prayer.” And do you think that Christ did not live in the spirit of
prayer? Yet He had to have his special time and place to pray. Do not fall under the
injurious notion that because your spirit cries to God in prayer all day long, therefore
there must not be some season for more immediately coming into God’s presence. If
you imagine this, I am afraid that it will prove a snare to your feet. The Lord Jesus
Christ, who knew better than you do that the main thing is the spirit of prayer rather
than the act of prayer, yet Himself retired into desert places to maintain the act and
exercise of prayer. Be spiritual. Be baptized into the spirit of prayer. But do not be
deceived by the enemy, who can steal a spirit away while we dream that we only
spiritualize it. We had better preserve the very bones of prayer—the posture, the
time, place—rather than let it all ooze away into an impalpable mental condition.
God keep us prayerful. He will do so if He makes us like His dear Son.
