Be a Secret Santa all year long!
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for my many meals, the food you provide for me. Thank you for being my provider today as well as every day in the past. Thank you for assuring me that you will be my provider in the days to come as well. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey with something that Jesus said:
[Jesus said:] Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. (Matthew 6:1-4)
Lord, here I am again. I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey again as usual. My prayer for you today Lindsey is interesting because you have placed yourself in the public eye and in this way quite a bit of what you do is seen by others. So I pray that today you would find ways to be charitable to others without anyone knowing it was you. I pray that opportunities will appear for you to be a secret Santa for others today. And God, who sees all you do will reward you (rather than be rewarded by man). And all the glory goes to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Welcome the children in the name of Jesus
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my family. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. (Matthew 18:5)
Lord, I’m here again ready to begin another daily prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you will have many opportunities to welcome children, to receive children and to do it in the name of Jesus for then you in turn will receive Jesus as he welcomes you! Lord, open the doors for Lindsey to do this today and in the coming week. And all the glory goes to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Humble yourself Lindsey – that is the key to greatness!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the house that I am so happy to have. Thank you for my home. Thank you for being my provider Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer this day for Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4)
Lord, it’s me. I’m here to pray for your daughter again. Lindsey, today I pray that you would always remember the key to greatness according to Jesus. I pray that the Lord would give you ways to remember this. I pray that those around you would also help you to remember this truth. Stay humble. Stay yourself. Stay your humble self! 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

Be just like a little child if you want to enter the kingdom of heaven
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another wonderful day. Thank you for the wonderful weather. Thank you for letting me sense your presence all around me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-3)
Lord, I’m here as usual on behalf of your daughter you love, to pray for something that she seems to have already! Lindsey, it seems like you have embraced today’s scripture wholeheartedly. You have such a childlike joy just bursting out from within you. And today I thank the Lord that you indeed are ready to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And I pray that you would continue holding fast unto this quality. I ask that the Lord would remind you now and then that becoming like a little child is a GOOD THING! Never be ashamed of it. 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
[tomorrow will be the very next verse] (more…)
Jesus has prepared a mansion for you
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for Lindsey’s joy, honesty and good example. And thank you for the scripture to use as I am beginning prayers based on things that Jesus said:
[Jesus said:] Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:1-3)
Lord, I’m here to lift up Lindsey to you. I am here on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, keep on believing in God. Keep on believing in Jesus, for in his Father’s house there are many mansions and he is preparing a place for you! Yes, he is setting up a place in a mansion just for you. And he will come again to take you there. I pray that he would let you know personally that this is indeed true. So, we now give all the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
God loves you and calls you his daughter!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome this new day with you. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer as I start another 40 days of prayers by acknowledging how scripture says that she is a child of God, a daughter of God:
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (1 John 3:1)
Lord, I’m here again to lift up your daughter Lindsey. I ask that you let her feel your presence and confirm that she is indeed A DAUGHTER OF GOD. You have bestowed your love upon her. Let her feel that love from you today. Let that truth resonate in her this day Lord. And all the glory goes to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Play and Dance before the Lord with all Your Might!
Heavenly Father, Welcome! Yes, Welcome! Thank you for being with me these last 200 days of praying for your daughter you love, for Lindsey. Thank you for bringing the right scriptures to mind for each of my 200 prayers for your talented daughter. Thank you for filling her heart with your joy and letting it show to all who see her. Thank you for these last 40 days of prayers all based on scriptures about music and musicians. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer as it describes your daughter so well … playing and dancing with all her might!
And it was told king David, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness. And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.
And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.
Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! And David said unto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Lord. And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour. Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death. (2 Samuel 6:12-23)
Lord, I’m here again, as usual. I am here to lift up your daughter who loves you with this special prayer. Lord, let her play and dance with all her might before you today. Let the joy of the Lord be evident in her performance. Give her the opportunity to play and dance with all her might, with all her strength and to celebrate before you Lord. Some may wonder how she can be dancing like this before you … but as David said, it was not shamelessly, it was before the Lord! And those common women honored him for showing his intensity in loving his God. I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that you may have opportunity to play and dance with such intensity before your God. And all the glory is his. The glory all goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
You are appointed as a Musician to play your Violin Joyfully
Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for providing us with such interesting weather. Calm and humid and then suddenly extremely windy and cool. Raining hard and then all of a sudden sunny and nice. And all this in just one day. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers with instruments of musick, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy. (1 Chronicles 15:16)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I am ready to pray for Lindsey now. Lindsey, I pray today that you would be able to use the many musical talents, skills and gifts with joy. I pray that your concerts would be joyful times for you. I pray that the thousands who come to hear you will hear more than just you. I pray that the love and grace of God will shine through each of your performances. Perhaps God has set you in this place just like how 1 Chronicles refers to musicians being appointed to sing and to play their instruments. I pray that the joy of the Lord would be with you during each day of your tour. And we can give the glory to God. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Make Melodies in your Heart to the Lord
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the night sky. Thank you for the moon as it cycles night by night for 28 nights. And thank you for the many points of light in the dark sky. Thank you for being an extravagant God who didn’t create just a few hundred stars for us to see at night … but billions of stars! Thank you for letting this be just one example we can follow as we also try to be extravagant towards others. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:18-20)
Lord, I’m here again as usual to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. I pray that you would fill Lindsey with your Spirit as your scripture promises and that she also would find new melodies in her heart. Melodies that she can turn into beautiful uplifting songs. And Lindsey, remember to always give thanks for everything to God and the Father in the name of Christ Jesus. And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Welcome God to come – sing and play your instruments (and maintain a childlike enthusiasm!)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the waves upon the beach. Thank you for the joy they bring to the children. Thank you for the excitement in their voices, in their eyes, in their jumping around. Thank you for reminding us that we are to be like little children if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven*. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey, who is very much like those energetic, enthusiastic children:
Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God. (2 Chronicles 5:12-14)
Lord, here I am again. I am here on behalf of Lindsey again today as usual. I ask that whenever she plays her violin and praises you Lord, that you would fill that place even if it is a concert hall or outdoor music festival! And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
*And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)
