Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the many colors seen in your creation around me. Thank you for the greens in the grass and the trees. Thank you for the blues in the sky. Thank you for the pinks in the sunset. And thank you for the browns in the dirt and the sand. Thank you for the seemingly unlimited colors in nature! And thank you for the scripture to use in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjath-jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the Lord, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it. And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart. And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. (1 Chronicles 13:6-8)
Lord, here I am. I am here again on behalf of your daughter you love. Today I ask that you give her the same passion for you that King David and all Israel had as related in 1 Chronicles 13. They played and sang and danced before you with all their might. I ask that you give Lindsey the opportunity this week do the same … to play and dance before you God. To play and dance before you with all her might! And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
Then David and all Israel went to Baalah of Judah (also called Kiriath-jearim) to bring back the Ark of God, which bears the name of the Lord who is enthroned between the cherubim. They placed the Ark of God on a new cart and brought it from Abinadab’s house. Uzzah and Ahio were guiding the cart. David and all Israel were celebrating before God with all their might, singing songs and playing all kinds of musical instruments—lyres, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets.
David and all Israel went up to Baalah (that is, Kiriath Jearim) in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God the Lord, who sits enthroned between the cherubim—the ark that is called by his name. They transported the ark on a new cart from the house of Abinadab; Uzzah and Ahio were guiding the cart, while David and all Israel were energetically celebrating before God, singing and playing various stringed instruments, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets.
