Good morning Heavenly Father. What a good and great morning it is. Thank you for the dawn where light shines forth from the prior darkness. Thank you for the light so that our eyes may see. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey.
And David and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. (2 Samuel 6:5)
But also keep in mind what immediately follows (pointing out how they were incorrectly transporting the ark of God):
And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God. (2 Samuel 6:6-7)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m ready to lift up your daughter. Let her play before you Lord. Let her play on an instrument made of wood. Let her music be joyful and acknowledging you Lord. Let her dance and play joyful melodies and harmonies. Let her fly through the air with joyful dancing. But I also ask that you protect her Lord. I ask that you keep her rejoicing on track and on the path you would have her go. I ask that anytime her rejoicing is for the wrong reasons, that you open her eyes and her heart. Let her not be deceived nor misled. Let her not forget that you have set down guidelines for her to follow, just as you set guidelines for the Israelites to follow when transporting the ark of God. 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
while David and all Israel were energetically celebrating before the Lord, singing and playing various stringed instruments, tambourines, rattles, and cymbals.
Meanwhile, David and all the house of Israel were celebrating before the Lord with all kinds of instruments made of fir wood, and with lyres, harps, tambourines, castanets and cymbals.
