Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for words that can be set in the form of poetry. Thank you for the meters and the rhymes, even those passed down from former times. And thank you for the scripture to base my prayer for Lindsey today:
Moreover the Levites: Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, which was over the thanksgiving, he and his brethren. (Nehemiah 12:8)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I look forward to this joy each day. And today I am ready to begin my daily prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, it is interesting that praising God and offering him thanksgiving with music and song was so very important that scriptures tell us about the special people who were in charge of the thanksgiving songs! Today I pray that songs of thanksgiving and praise would become more and more part of your life. Just as music is part of you and part of your life, I pray that songs of praise and thanksgiving would also be part of your life. I pray that God would expand his many musical gifts in you to include the ability to fully integrate his Word and his music as part of everyday life. May your music open the eyes as well as the ears of those who hear it and may it be integral with your offering it as a song of thanksgiving to your God. And all the glory is his. The glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
And the Levites: Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, who together with his colleagues was in charge of the songs of thanksgiving.
The Levites who returned with them were Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, who with his associates was in charge of the songs of thanksgiving.
