Daily D – Jeremiah 32:17, 27; 33:3
Jeremiah 32:17 Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. (NIV)
**Jeremiah 32:27 I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? (NIV)
**Jeremiah 33:3** Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. (NIV)
Prayerlessness is indifference. Prayerlessness is carelessness. Prayerlessness is heedlessness.
If we put a little effort into it, we could come up with a few more “lessnesses.”
The three verses at the top of the page today are among people’s favorite verses to memorize. It would do us well to revisit these chapters. Chapter 32 in particular is a message of judgment and disaster. God shows Jeremiah what lies on the other side of disaster but first comes disaster. It would be good to understand what caused the disaster and avoid similar behavior and mindsets.
Chapter 33 describes the restoration to come and the promise of the Messiah. (See verses 15 and following.)
Commit these verses to memory. Remember where they came from. Take full note of their context. Align your mind with God’s thoughts. Attune your heart to his love. Acknowledge the wonderful reality of 32:17:
Nothing is too hard for you.
Listen carefully as God declares
Practice the presence of God and the joy of discovery in response to 33:3:
God has invited you into his presence. He has made the way open and accessible by Jesus. This is a good day to learn how to pray. This is a good day to practice prayerfulness.
I will pray at all times with all kinds of prayer practices.
Our Father, teach us to pray in days of looming disaster and days of restoration. Teach us to pray now and always. Amen.

Psalm 143:8-10 Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord; I run to you to hide me. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.

Daily D – Ezra 3:11-13
Ezra 3:11-13 With praise and thanks, they sang this song to the Lord: “He is so good! His faithful love for Israel endures forever!” Then all the people gave a great shout, praising the Lord because the foundation of the Lord’s Temple had been laid. But many of the older priests, Levites, and other leaders who had seen the first Temple wept aloud when they saw the new Temple’s foundation. The others, however, were shouting for joy. The joyful shouting and weeping mingled together in a loud noise that could be heard far in the distance.
Daily D – 2 Chronicles 35:22-25
2 Chronicles 35:22-25 After Josiah had finished restoring the Temple, King Neco of Egypt led his army up from Egypt to do battle at Carchemish on the Euphrates River, and Josiah and his army marched out to fight him. But King Neco sent messengers to Josiah with this message: “What do you want with me, king of Judah? I have no quarrel with you today! I am on my way to fight another nation, and God has told me to hurry! Do not interfere with God, who is with me, or he will destroy you.” But Josiah refused to listen to Neco, to whom God had indeed spoken, and he would not turn back. Instead, he disguised himself and led his army into battle on the plain of Megiddo. But the enemy archers hit King Josiah with their arrows and wounded him. He cried out to his men, “Take me from the battle, for I am badly wounded!”
