Chronological Bible Reading: Psalm 136-138; 2 Corinthians 6
Monday, August 31

Matt. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Dear Lord and Master:
It sometimes comes to pass, for Christs sake, I endure suffering in some
way for getting out the gospel. Help me rejoice in that honor whenever it is
conferred by your providence. I thank you for every time you count me worthy
to suffer with my Lord, for this is the way of the Master.
I also joy in this: my sufferings, my losses and crosses, my persecutions and
afflictions, all make a platform from which I can more believablyand with
greater powerwitness for Jesus Christ. They are a divine set-up. Help me study
carefully my great example, the Lord Jesus, and be filled with his Spirit today!
I need much teaching on this, Lord. I need much beholding of Jesus in his
humility and suffering. I need much grace, more than I have previously sought
for at your face, to get the gospel to __________ and to __________.
Lord, send your power on my pleas! Send your Spirit with my supplication.
There is no power in prayer without your presence as I pray, because unless I am
really and truly addressing you, who else will hear and who else can answer? Lord,
can you teach me to intercede for souls? You,
Heb. 5:7-8 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and
supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from
death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the
things which he suffered;
Dear God, make me a witness like Jesus was! Not the cheap kind, passing
out tracts but taking a pass on trials. If I would know the full measure of
fruitfulness I must know the full measure of pruning. Give me such grace. Amen.
Chronological Bible Reading: Psalm 145-147; 2 Corinthians 9
Thursday, September 3

Heb. 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that
was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,

O SOUL, are you weary and troubled?

No light in the darkness you see?
Theres a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we are!
His Word shall not fail youHe promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Helen H. Lemmel, 1922


Chronological Bible Reading: Psalm 139-141; 2 Corinthians 7
Tuesday, September 1

Matt. 26:52-53 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for
all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray
to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
O Holy God:
There is no limit to the available resources of Christ. The band of
belligerents every hater leads is an insignificant squad if only I summon my allies.
If Christ was ableeven in his humiliationto fill the air with seventy thousand
angels, how much more can he do it now that he is glorified! For now,
Matt. 28:18 All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jesus, even in your humiliation you were Lord of all (especially of the
unseen world and things outside my control). Make me see this even more clearly
as I seek to take the tale of the all-conquering love displayed on the cross to those
who are lost. Angels are also, according to some measure, at my beck and call. I
have but to pray and ask you to intervene, because you are the one
Heb. 1:7,14 Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. Are
they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
I do not think about this enough when I pray. Like Elijahs servant, if only
my eyes were opened I would see the heights filled with horses, and chariots of
fire surrounding me as I serve you.
Help me remember today to count on invisible forces. Let me not lean to
trust on that which is seen by the eye, but let me have respect to spiritual agencies
known to faith. Let your angels play-out your providence in my life. You can give
me friends on earth, but even if you do not, you can raise up friends in heavenly
places. Do it today so I will have power in my testimony for you. In Jesus name I
ask for this. Amen.
Chronological Bible Reading: Psalm 148-150; 2 Corinthians 10
Friday, September 4

Psa. 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my
thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Dear Lord, we lift up our souls to you:
Now as we pray, let not any room within us be closed-off to keep you out.
Let there be no secret purpose of evil formed in our minds, awaiting an
opportunity to be fulfilled. But instead,
Eph. 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be
strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Give us grace to follow after what is good, and bless all our undertakings
for you (especially the upcoming Labor Day Picnic). Give us all strength in the
inner man, but also give us boldness outwardly for your cause and for Christ.
2 Cor. 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us;
NOW, AS WE PRAY THIS PRAYER, let us not say to ourselves secretly, You can
get involved someday, but not yet, or, Get involved a little, but not too much.

Lord, give us zeal for your Eternal Purpose, our passion
NOW, AS WE PRAY THIS PRAYER, let us not harbor in our hearts any wrong
feelings of jealousy, bitterness, anger or revenge.

Lord, bless our enemies and those who have despitefully used us
NOW, AS WE PRAY THIS PRAYER, let us not still be intending to use the best
hours and years of our lives for ourselves.

Lord, save us from being a slave to lesser purposes than your eternal one!
Holy Spirit of God, as we rise from this act of devotion, let us not return to
wicked thoughts and worldly ways, but lead me in the way everlasting. This is what we
have to ask you for. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Do it for Jesus
sake because we ask it in Jesus name. Amen.

Chronological Bible Reading: Psalm 142-144; 2 Corinthians 8
Wednesday, September 2

Ezek. 18:27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he
hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
Almighty and Merciful God:
The Bible tells me to confess afresh my many sins and wickedness, and that
I should not evade or cloak them when I appear before your face. Today Lord, I
do confess them with a humble, lowly, penitent and obedient heart. I thank you I
receive forgiveness through your infinite mercy by the merit of Jesus Christ.
I have erred and wandered from your ways like a lost lamb. I have followed
the desires and devices of my own heart too often. I have offended against your
holy law. I have left undone those things that ought to have been done, and done
those things I ought not to have done. There is no soundness in me!
But you, O Lord, have all the soundness I need, and display mercy to
miserable offenders like myself. You spare those who confess their faults before
you. You restore those who repent, and you do so according to the promises
declared by Jesus Christ and recorded in your word. Grant Lord, for Jesus sake,
that I might live today a godly, righteous, and sober life in light of the lateness of
this hour. Bring us revival that we might live to the glory of your holy name!
Deliver me from the bonds of those sins that take advantage of my human
faults and frailty. Lead me not into temptation, because you know how I find that
pathway too easily on my own! Grant this for Christ Jesus sake because of what
he accomplished on the cross. And then,
Psa. 51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
Deny me not this plea, because by this your name will be glorified. All these
things I ask and expect for revival, and for Jesus Christs sake who died to make
us all of us whole. Amen.
Chronological Bible Reading: Proverbs 1-3; 2 Corinthians 11
Saturday, September 5

Psa. 119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
Dear Master:
I lay my life entirely open before you; please work a complete
transformation in it as you work in our church! Renew my mind; conform my
will. I yield my actions and my heart to your loving control. Focus my eyes and
give me a word of reassurance from your love.
I HAVE A CRAVING TO BE SATISFIED: stablish thy word. Do not just found it
(establish), but confirm it (stablish) and make it firm. I need the constant
affirmation of my bridegroom, Jesus. I know about your love because you told
me, but I need those precious tokens of your love throughout my life in the midst
of my crisis. Fulfill your word in the reality of my ministry for you.
I HAVE A COMMITMENT TO BE MADE: I am devoted. It is not, Can I trust
God but, can you trust me? It is only as I am more devoted to you that you
can confirm your truth to my experience. Please, Sir, by your Holy Spirit, place
the application of your word within my reach at all times.
I HAVE A CONCEPT TO BE APPLIED: I am devoted to thy fear. I have the
somber realization of who you are as my Master. Your holiness is so much more
than I can ever imagine. And fear of you is the starting point for both
understanding (Prov. 1:7) and wisdom (Prov. 9:10). Make me fear who you are
so I can obey what you say.
Psa. 119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.
I HAVE A CRAVING TO BE SATISFIED: protect my reputation. Reproach and
shame is something I rightly fear. I HAVE A COMMITMENT TO BE MADE: you are
fair in all you do. I HAVE A CONCEPT TO BE APPLIED: help me fear a bad
conscience, and not just a bad consequence. For Jesus sake do it. Amen.

Baptists tend to ridicule liturgical churches that use "prepared prayers" because
they lack spontaneity. But for many Baptists, their prayers are so predictable they are
no more spontaneous than written-out prayers. The result is we end up praying the
same things over and over.

Dont make excuses; make a difference!

Do not read ahead and do not try to catch up. Use each day as it comes. Then
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.

Secret prayer is the secret of prayer, the soul of prayer, the seal of prayer, the
strength of prayer. If you do not pray alone you do not pray at all. Our Lord Jesus
Christ would go nowhere till He had prayed. He would attempt nothing till He had
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 Gods 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 prayerthe posture, the
time, placerather 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.
Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92
