Psalms – to be accompanied by stringed instruments

From the Old Testament Student Manual:

(14) Neginoth [Psalm 4; 61]. … This name, from the Hebrew word meaning to strike a chord, … clearly denotes that the Psalm was to be sung to the accompaniment of stringed instruments.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for fresh air, without it life would cease. Thank you for chords played upon stringed instruments and for ears to hear them. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. (Psalm 4:1)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey who is taking time to read your word today and each day this year. I ask that you bring more and more understanding of the words that she reads in your Word. I ask that you let her understand how some of the psalms of David were written to be accompanied by stringed instruments playing chords. And I ask that you give her many opportunities to use her talent and skills to accompany scriptures with her violin. And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Use your violin to accompany songs from scripture

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your Word filled with the truths we need in this life. Thank you for sending your Son to redeem and save us. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments. (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Lord, here I am. I’m here as usual to pray for your daughter you love. And the scripture for today includes something I had not noticed before, even after reading Habakkuk many times over the years … it ends by specifying it was for the chief singer, the song leader or choir director and is to be accompanied by stringed instruments! And so today I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that the stringed instrument you play can accompany scriptures… can accompany songs from scripture. I pray that God will reveal more of this to you today and that he will give you many opportunities to use your violin like this. And the glory is to God. He gets all the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Enter the city with the sound of stringed instruments then proceed to the house of the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the small, the little, the tiny. The small drops of rain that combine into a puddle or even fill the streets. The little seed that ends up a huge bush or tree.  The tiny organisms seen only under a microscope. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 20:27-28)

Lord, I’m here again. It’s me! I am here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter you love.  Today I pray that Lindsey may be in the forefront with the leaders singing and playing and rejoicing.  Let them parade into the city and then enter your temple with songs of praise. And all the glory is yours Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Working Day and Night, Musicians were free from other responsibilities!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome a new day with you. I welcome a day anew with you. Thank you for always being with me and for that normal feeling when I feel your presence all around me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night. (1 Chronicles 9:33)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. Today I lift Lindsey up to you Lord as a talented skilled musician, day in and day out. Playing her music is how she is employed day and night. And so, Lindsey, today I bless you and ask that the Lord be there to guide you during each and every performance. I ask that the joy and love of the Lord be evident in your music wherever you may go. I ask that the Lord keep you strong in the midst of what scriptures refers to as working “day and night”! May the Lord keep you strong and healthy, in both body and spirit. 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 (more…)

May Your Heart Rejoice as You Walk to the Music!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for history. Thank you for how records are kept. Thank you for being there throughout history. Thank you for being with Isaiah as he wrote the scripture you gave me to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel. (Isaiah 30:29)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here… as always. I look forward to our time together. And now I am ready to lift up your daughter. Lord, I ask that you draw her to you. I ask that you lead her into your mountain. I ask that you let her know that you are there.  Give her a song Lord. Put gladness into her heart. She is looking. She is searching. She is seeking you Lord. Let her find you. Let it be the new song you give to her. Let it be the gladness of heart in that song. Let that be her walk. Let her walk to your song Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for always being with me. Thank you for coming near to me anytime I draw near to you. Thank you for clearly lighting the path for me for the task you have set before me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. (Colossians 3:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you and thank you again for showing me the way to go for the task at hand. But I also am here on behalf of your daughter you love and today I have another big request. Lord, I ask that you continue to put godly advisers around her. Surround her with people who will not just encourage her, but also urge her along the right path, warning her of things she must avoid. Place people around her that can teach her with hymns and songs. Help her to sing and play with grace in her heart. And we will give the glory to you. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

The Minstrel Played and the Lord Came

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

Their music and rejoicing shook the earth

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for feeding the birds. And thank you for telling us that we each are more valuable than a bird! And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer for your daughter today:

And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon. And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them. (1 Kings 1:40)

Lord, I’m here again… as usual, to begin another days prayer for your daughter who loves you. And today I ask for something big, something huge. Today I ask that you be with Lindsey and let her shake the earth with joyful celebration and praise to you Lord. Let those around her rejoice with her. Let the joy of the Lord fill Lindsey and let that joy be apparent to everyone who sees her rejoicing in you Lord. And the glory goes to you. We give you the glory. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen … and let the earth shake in celebration of God! (more…)

Play and Dance with Joyful Music for the King with other women!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for touch. Thank you for how I can feel the keys as I type to know how much to press on a key and when to stop pressing it:) Thank you for letting my feet feel the ground as I walk so that my steps are sure. And thank you for the pain that I feel at times which instantly alerts me to danger situations such as burning  or cutting myself accidentally. And thank you for the scripture about the women singing, playing and dancing with joy:

And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with instruments of musick And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands. (1 Samuel 18:6-7)

Lord, I am here. I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey and pray for her again as I do each day. And today I ask that you put celebration in her mind and joy in her heart. Show her a way that she can play and dance for you today. Let her feel your joy as she celebrates over you her King! And all the glory we give to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen (more…)
