Heavenly Father, good morning! At night the sky was crystal clear and the stars were bright and twinkling. Thank you for setting the stars in the heavens for us to see. It is breath-taking! Hundreds that I can see… thousands with a little help … millions with a good telescope, but there are even way more than that. The immenseness of this paints a splendid picture of the God we praise today! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use as the basis for my prayer to kick off the next 40 days of prayers for the daughter you love!
Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; (Philippians 2:14-15)
Lord, what a privilege to be able to sit with you. What an honor. But here I am … sitting with you. You restored my breath. You cleared my mind. I am here on Lindsey’s behalf again Lord. Today I pray a prayer confirming that she is a child of God, that she is a daughter of God shining as a light in the world in the midst of the darkness which you refer to as crooked, perverse and twisted. Lord, I ask that you fill your daughter with your love and your light. Let her shine brightly before all she meets and let her do all things without grumbling, disputing, arguing or murmuring! Let only goodness spill out from her where ever she goes. And we will give you the glory. Yes, all the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world
