Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the rain and how it is necessary for trees, plants and flowers. Thank you for the many aspects of creation that I see all around me each day. And thank you for the scripture to use as the basis for my prayer for your daughter to start another 40 days of prayers:
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)
Lord, here I am. It is a joy to be with you today. It is wonderful to begin another 40 days praying for your daughter with a prayer based on scripture that affirms that she is a child of God. Lindsey, you publicly affirm your belief in Jesus and this gives you the right and power to be a child of God… to be a daughter of God! I pray that God would affirm this to you. I pray that you would rejoice in the knowledge that you are a loved daughter of God. And we give God all the glory for this awesome truth. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
But to all who did receive Him,
He gave them the right to be children of God,
to those who believe in His name,
who were born,
not of blood,
or of the will of the flesh,
or of the will of man,
but of God.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
