Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for allowing me to walk with you another day. Thank you for my breath and for my life. Thank you for being my protector and my provider. Thank you Lord. And thank you for this multifaceted scripture to form the basis of my prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you delight in:
And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. (Luke 17:11-19)
Lord it is with joy that I take time now to lift up the daughter you love. And this scripture seems to bring forth two kinds of prayers. And so this day I am praying two big prayers for Lindsey. First, I pray that you clearly show her the way you would have her go this day. And give her the courage to quickly go that way, just as all ten lepers did. They were not healed at first, but they all did begin going to the priests and only after they had gone part of the way were they healed. I pray that as Lindsey walks with you, that along the way you would give her tangible results… results that make her smile… results that put joy into her heart. And then I pray that she would be like the one who comes back to give all the glory to you Lord. As she accomplishes great things, I pray that she always will turn to give you the glory. Help her maintain a thankful heart Lord. Let thankfulness be a natural part of every hour of every day. And we will turn to you Lord to give you the glory. We will give you all the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
NKJV: Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
