Lindsey, today is letter Y for our A to Z of Women in the Bible, and the woman for the letter Y is YOU! Yes, you Lindsey. For in his Gospel, John specifically states that Jesus was praying for everyone who believes in him through their word! And so I repeat Jesus’s prayer that we may all be one. I pray that you and I and all the others who believe in Jesus will be one so that the world may believe!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the rain and for all your creation that depends upon it. Thank you for your sunlight that is so necessary for all life here. And thank you for including Lindsey in your scripture as one of those who believe on you:
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 17:20-21)
Lord, here I am. I am here to pray for your daughter with this special scripture that refers specifically to her. Lindsey, today I pray for you as someone who chose to believe in Jesus based on the testimony of his disciples. I pray that you too would continue to give your own testimony as to Jesus, how he died for you to redeem you and how he rose from the dead conquering death. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
YOU (ie, Lindsey)
One of the few places specifically referencing us (and YOU) today:
I am not praying only on their behalf, but also on behalf of those who believe in me through their testimony, that they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me.
I pray not only for these,
but also for those who believe in Me
through their message.
May they all be one,
as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You.
May they also be one in Us,
so the world may believe You sent Me.
