Wondrously show your steadfast love to Lindsey

Heavenly Father, thank you for hearing my prayers and for answering me. I know that you listen when I pray. Thank you for your love. And thank you for the scripture to frame today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. (Psalm 17:6-7)

Lord, it is wonderful to come before you today on behalf of the daughter you love. I am calling upon you Lord. Hear my prayer for Lindsey. I ask that you reveal your wonderful love to her today. Show her some of the wonders of your great love this day. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

May you have great and exceeding joy today!

Heavenly Father, thank you for watching over me day and night. Thank you for your Word that is a glorious gift to us. Thank you for helping me to understand it as I read it over and over so that it can almost seem like it is part of me! And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer this day for your daughter Lindsey:

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 1:24-25)

Lord, I could hardly wait to come sit with you today. For today it seems like a celebration for your daughter you love! I ask that you keep her from stumbling or falling as you bring her before your glorious presence and that you grant her a great and exceeding joy today. Let her be more joyful than usual today. Let everyone who sees her notice the joy bubbling from within her. And we will give you the glory. The glory and majesty are yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

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. (more…)

Perhaps you are here for such a time as this!

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for continuing to be my provider and protector, my instructor and my guide. Thank you for the scripture that is for your daughter Lindsey. I pray this scripture over her this day:

For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:14-16)

Lord, yesterdays tears are gone, and now I come before you to ask that you would speak to Lindsey if you have helped her achieve her international status and position for such a time as this. Who knows, perhaps she has come to your kingdom for such a time as this! I ask that you be her guide, that you carefully and clearly show her the way she should go … and give her the courage to go that way.  Remind her that you are at her side each and every step of the way. Let her see the path as you see it Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

Don’t become puffed up – Do live by your faith!

Heavenly Father, thank you for another new day started anew! Thank you for the majestic sunrise and masterpiece sunset. Thank you for the moon and the stars in the night. Thank you for the noon day sun. Thank you for the clouds with their rain and snow. Thank you for this wonderful world that you created for us. Thank you for giving us Your Word as our scriptures. And thank you for the scripture to base today’s prayer for your daughter:

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

Lord, what an interesting time we are in. And in the midst of the many things going on all around me, I enjoy taking time away from it all to sit with you. And now with tears I come before you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. With tears and bated breath as you allow me a glimpse of what it can be like to be in the spotlight day after day. And so I pray another big prayer today for your daughter Lindsey who loves you so very much. Remember her this day Lord for she wants to live by her faith. Lord, be with her this day and help her walk by faith. Show her the way to walk and give her the courage to walk it. Lord, Habakkuk reminds us what it means to NOT live by faith … I ask that you help Lindsey to not stray from your path. Help her to not become puffed up. Keep her on your path and help her to keep her ego from being inflated. She wants to live with integrity Lord, so be with her every step of the way.  And we will glorify you Lord. We will sing your praises. All the glory is to you Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

You are a child of God, a daughter of God!

Heavenly Father, thank you for watching over my family the past week. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for guiding me. Thank you for all your many blessings. And thank you for the scripture to use in my first prayer for the next set of 40 prayers for your daughter Lindsey:

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:26-29)

Lord, what a joy to be here with you again today. I am here today to lift up the daughter you love and to begin another set of daily prayers for her. And today I ask that you find a way to remind her that she truly is a daughter of God. She has put her faith in Jesus and is now a child of God and an heir according to the promise. Lord, you are Lindsey’s loving father so I ask that you walk with her today. I ask that you sit with her. I ask that you comfort her while you sing over her. Let her know that you are there with her. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

40 Words from 40 Prayers over 40 Days

Hello Lindsey – well, my first 40 days of prayers is completed and to celebrate, I created a one page Word Picture summary of short phrases from each of those first 40 prayers. The 40 prayers ended with prayers based on scriptures about who God is from A to Z. I am now starting the next 40 days of prayers for you – this next set likely will include scriptures about who God says you are from A to Z.

This Word Picture is designed for you to stand back and squint when looking at it. You are very creative, so perhaps you already are used to squinting to see what is really there :)

I had a local shop here put this Word Picture on thick foam board and I will be mailing it to you today I hope. But if you ever need to see it again from anywhere around the world, here it is in PDF format:

(Z) God is Zealous

Good Morning Heavenly Father! What a wonderful day, for today I use the letter Z for my daily prayer for your daughter Lindsey … and it is the end of the first 40 days of prayers for her! Thank you for providing a scripture for me to use each of those 40 days. Thank you for giving me words for the prayers. Thank you for helping me each day as I come before you to lift up your daughter you love so much.  And thank you for the scripture for day number 40:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Lord, it is me again … and if you are asking who will go and pray for your daughter Lindsey, I say “I will”.  And when you ask where are you, I say “Here I am!” And for this day, I enjoy praying about your zeal, for Lindsey also is zealous for the good! She takes up each project that you set before her, and WITH YOU she knows she can do it, so she puts her whole heart into it. She is zealous to perform the projects you set before her. And so I ask today that you would help her to keep her zeal aimed only for the good. Peter wrote about this:

Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ESV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ASV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 KJV) (interlinear of Hebrew/English)

So, Lord, I ask that you help Lindsey stay zealous. Yes, help her to stay zealous for what is good! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(Y) Jesus’s Yoke is Easy and his Burden is Light

Heavenly Father, I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for the majestic sunrise. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness in that each sunrise can be different, some pink, some orange, some with wisps of clouds, others with a mist or a fog. Different from an island or from the bottom of a mountain. Different from within a dense forest or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Different in summer and in winter.  Even near nonexistent near the north or south pole! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today that reminds us that Jesus promised that his yoke was easy:

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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)

Lord, what an exciting time. Tomorrow I finish my first 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey with a prayer based on the letter Z. Today I am happy to pray for Lindsey, that you would remind her that your yoke is easy. It is not something to be avoided at all costs. Remind her that your burden is light – it is not a heavy burden.  Let her see this with her own eyes and her own heart today. I ask that today she would find your yoke extremely easy and your burden very light. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(X) God is EXcellent and EXalted

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for warmth! I thank you for providing me with a home and with heat in the winter.  And thank you for the scripture for X reminding us that you alone are EXcellent!

Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven. (Psalm 148:13)

Lord, how wonderful it is to come here before you again this morning on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. She enjoys praising your name, for your name is excellent! Today I ask that you let her see a bit more of your glory that is above the earth. Be her provider today and provide her with an extra bit of time that she can look up above the earth and then open her eyes to see a bit of your glory. And we will praise you Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
