Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for peace of mind as I start this new day. Thank you for reminding me that I just need to keep my focus on Jesus and not be distracted by what I see to the left and to the right of me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: (John 16:21-26)
Lord, here I am! I am ready to start today’s prayer for your daughter you love! Lindsey, today I pray that your heart is rejoicing. I pray that you recognize and realize that no one can rob you of this joy. And right now I pray that you realize that Jesus is telling you to ASK … to ASK … and to ASK IN HIS NAME! And so I pray that you can be an asker this day (yeah, I just made up that word). I pray that you can be someone who asks … who is not afraid to ask in the name of Christ Jesus. And I pray that God will answer… and that you will hear his answer clearly. And we both can give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray and ask this all IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS, KING OF KINGS! Amen
When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world. So you also have sorrow now. But I will see you again. Your hearts will rejoice, and no one will rob you of your joy. In that day you will not ask Me anything.
“I assure you: Anything you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.
“I have spoken these things to you in figures of speech. A time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures, but I will tell you plainly about the Father. In that day you will ask in My name. I am not telling you that I will make requests to the Father on your behalf.
When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name,he will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive,that your joy may be full.
“I have said these things to you in figures of speech. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures of speech but will tell you plainly about the Father. In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf;
