You are a royal priesthood to proclaim praises of the God who called you from darkness into his marvelous light

Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for the dexterity and quick coordination of my fingers as they type this prayer. My fingers seem to know exactly where to go to type the words to match the thoughts as they run through my mind without my needing to even look at them or at the keyboard. What a miracle this is. Perhaps it is similar to how your daughter can play the violin as if it were all part of her. While I can’t seem to understand how it all “works”, I can say thank you for it, as it points to your wonderful design when you created us. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer today for your daughter:

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light (1 Peter 2:9)

Lord, it’s me again, coming to sit with you to rest a bit as you take me on this wild ride, from tears, to excitement, to royalty and prayer. Yesterdays scripture for your daughter was from royalty. Today’s is to royalty as you remind Lindsey that she can sing and play praises to you for she is called into your marvelous light. And so I ask that you open her eyes to see this marvelous light. Let it be her inspiration for her praises this day. Provide her with the opportunity to show praises of you. Yes, let all the glory be to you Lord. We give you the glory. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

HSCB:
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation, a people for His possession,
so that you may proclaim the praises
of the One who called you out of darkness
into His marvelous light.

NKJV:
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
