God’s statutes can be your songs along your journey
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the very bright colors on the birds. The small bright yellow birds are quite beautiful sitting on the bird feeder just outside our window. And thank you for the scripture for today that speaks of having your statutes as songs along the way on our journey:
Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. (Psalm 119:54)
Lord, I am here again to lift up Lindsey, your daughter you love. I ask that you fill her heart with the love of your statutes and that they would be like songs to her. Let your Word be like music in her heart as she journeys around the world. Let others notice it Lord. And the glory goes to you. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Play pleasant music, play the melodious lyre, sing for joy!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. Thank you for the joy that music can bring. Thank you for giving us ears that can hear pleasant melodies. And thank you for the scripture that tells about this:
Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. (Psalm 81:1-2)
Lord, I’m here again to sit with you and to pray for your daughter Lindsey. You have gifted her with a wonderful talent for playing pleasant music on the violin. Lindsey, today I pray that you would continue to use this gift. That you would sing and play with joy praising our God. Let those around you hear this joy in your music. 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 (more…)
Play your violin and make others well again because the Lord is with you!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for this day. Thank you for always being with me. Thank you for being my guide and keeping my feet from slipping. And thank you for the scripture to base today’s prayer:
And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me. Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Beth-lehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him. (1 Samuel 16:15-18)
Lord, I’m here again, anxious with joy to pray for your daughter Lindsey. She loves you Lord. You gave her the talent to play violin exceedingly well. Lindsey, I pray that you will recognize God is there with you as you play and that your cunning in playing would help others be well again. For not only are you talented, but God is with you. I pray that you would be both valiant and prudent as David was. He was a comely person, handsome and fine-looking … but what mattered was that the Lord was with him. And so I pray that God would be with you today and for all the days of your life and that he would be part of your music wherever you play. And all the glory is to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Play skillfully on the strings!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Looking outside I see another gorgeous morning to start of another glorious day with you. Thank you for the cool breeze blowing our small pinwheel in the midst of our flowers. Thank you for the wind that blows the small brown “helicopter” seeds off the trees in our back yard. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. (Psalm 33:1-3)
Lord, I’m here again. It is nice to sit with you and to relax. And so I am here to pray for your daughter. Yes, today I pray that you would rejoice in the Lord and give him all the praise. Sing to him today with your stringed instrument. Play a new song for him. Play skillfully with bursts of joy. No need to play quietly today, play for him with all your might. And the glory is all to him. Lord, we give you all the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Awake Stringed Instrument – Awake Early
Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for my voice, that I can speak and others can hear. Thank you for language that we can communicate with each other. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. (Psalm 108:1-4)
Lord, it’s me again. I am here on behalf of your daughter who loves you! I ask that you would be with her whenever she awakes early for you. Let her violin awake with her as well so that together they can praise you Lord. Let her praise you for your loyal, constant love. Your mercy is so great it reaches to the heavens. I ask that you answer her as she praises you Lord. And all the glory goes to you. The glory is all yours! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
You are being gathered together with other sons and daughters of God
Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome a new day. I welcome a new day with you. Thank you for letting me begin again today, to begin anew, to begin anew with you! And thank you for the scripture confirming again that your daughter Lindsey is indeed a child of God being gathered into one!
And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples. (John 11:49-54)
Lord, I am here with joy today because I am beginning another 40 days of prayer for your daughter you love. These next 40 days I will be using scriptures about music, singing and dancing as a basis of my prayers. But for the first prayer I will use the Gospel of John to confirm that you are gathering the children of God together. Lindsey, you are a daughter of God. You are being gathered together with other sons and daughters. Jesus died for you Lindsey. And John has said that Jesus died so that you could be gathered together as one as a child of God. And that is glorious. Yes, glorious. And we 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 (more…)
(Z) Zipporah – saved the life of Moses!
Lindsey, you too can save someone’s life just like Zipporah saved the life of Moses!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my lungs which are designed so well to take the oxygen I breathe and provide it to all my body. Thank you such a well designed body! It is amazing! And thank you for the final woman of the Bible for these last 26 prayers for your daughter Lindsey:
And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met him, and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me. So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision. (Exodus 4:24-26)
Lord, I am here again. It is so nice to come and sit with you, especially today for my final prayer of this 40 days of prayer for your daughter you love! Lindsey, I pray that you would keep your eyes and ears alert for people God sets in your path. Many people can at times need someone to step in to save them… even Moses! Scriptures tell us that it was his wife who somehow knew what was needed, and bravely stepped up and did it! God showed her and God can show you too. I pray that you would continue to be alert to all that God shows you and that God would then give you the courage to step up to actually DO what is needed. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
(Y) YOU! (Yes, YOU!)
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 (more…)
(X) EXceedingly Joyful Woman, blameless with EXultation
Lindsey, I pray that you will continue to be an EXCEEDINGLY joyful young lady, blameless with EXULTATION!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the crisp early morning air and the brisk breeze. Thank you for the joy seen in your creation, in the flowers and in the birds. And thank you for the scripture to use for the letter X (EX) for today’s prayer for your daughter you love:
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 1:24-25)
Lord, here I am again ready for my daily prayer for Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray joy and blameless exultation over you. I already see this in abundance in you, but today I pray that God would refill you with this joy and give you opportunity to stand blameless before his glory with exultation! I pray that God’s joy fill you exceedingly! I pray that those around you will continue to see this joy in your eyes and hear you speak about it with your lips. And we will give all the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
(W) Wife of Noble Character
Lindsey, today, for the letter W, I am reading and rereading about the characteristics of a Wife of noble character. Many of these characteristics would be good to imitate, and you already are doing so for many of them. I pray that you would continue to be a virtuous role model for the young women of this age!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for opening my eyes and my ears as well as my head and my heart to what you are doing in the world today. Thank you for the many godly people you have surrounded me with. And thank you for constantly being with Lindsey and encouraging her to continue to be a role model for young women today, with many of the characteristics mentioned in Proverbs 31:25-31:
- Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come.
- She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
- She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
- Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
- Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
- Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
- Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Lord, here I am. I am ready to start my next day’s prayer for Lindsey, the daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that God would gift you with more than mere entertainment talents, more than dancing skills, more than musical giftings. I pray that God would gift you the many characteristics that Proverbs speaks of referring to a wife of noble character. I pray that you would have the courage to remain virtuous in the midst of a culture that often is not. I pray that God would give you strength and honor as your clothes, and that you would look to the future with great joy and rejoicing. I pray that wisdom and kindness would be what others hear when you speak. I pray that your example will help those who are idle and bored to see that there is a better way. I pray that the young women today would call you blessed and that young men would praise you. I pray that you would excel in virtue ignoring favor and beauty but clinging to a reverent fear of the Lord. I pray that you would be rewarded for all that you do and that your deeds would bring you praise. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
