Continue to be Zealous for God and ignore any resulting insults

Heavenly Father, good morning. Wow, quite a thunderstorm this morning. More of your awesome thunder and lightning, but especially the downpour of rain. I am amazed at how you have arranged to store up tons of water up in the clouds and then release it as rain at the right times. Your are an amazing God and worthy of our praise! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture that I should use for today’s prayer for your daughter who loves you:

For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. (Psalm 69:9)

Lord, I’m here. I am ready to pray for Lindsey again, and today’s scripture is a very good one for her this day! Lindsey, I pray that you continue to be zealous for God, for his name and for his house. I ask God to protect you from the insults and reproach that result from your public acknowledgement of your God. I pray that you remain zealous regardless of the insults that you know will come at you. I pray that the joy of the Lord would be your strength at those times. Remain joyful Lindsey. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

ESV:
For zeal for your house has consumed me,
    and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.

NET:
For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

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
