Minstrel: The Hebrew word in 2 Kings 3:15 properly signifies a player upon a stringed instrument like the harp or kinnor
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for reasoning minds. Thank you for telling us that we can look around us and see evidence of you Lord. Thank you for making it evident to all who look. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:
And Elisha said, As the Lord of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee. But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him. (2 Kings 3:14-15)
Lord, I am here again. I am happy to begin a new prayer for your daughter, whom you have gifted with the talent and skill to be a powerful minstrel and a notable musician. The talent and skill that you gave her are seen wherever she performs. Now I ask that when she plays, that you would come! I ask for your presence Lord wherever she plays, wherever she performs. I ask that you make your presence evident each time. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
Elisha responded, “As the Lord of Hosts lives, I stand before Him. If I did not have respect for King Jehoshaphat of Judah, I would not look at you; I wouldn’t take notice of you. Now, bring me a musician.”
While the musician played, the Lord’s hand came on Elisha.
Elisha answered, “By the living Lord, whom I serve, I swear that I would have nothing to do with you if I didn’t respect your ally, King Jehoshaphat of Judah. Now get me a musician.”
As the musician played his harp, the power of the Lord came on Elisha
