With Jesus in paradise

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for breakfast to start my day. Thank you for the tiny group of friends that gather with me weekday mornings to read your word around a table in a restaurant or coffee shop. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter:

And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. (Luke 23:39-43)

Lord, I’m here again and ready to start a prayer for today for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture reminds you that there is indeed a paradise because Jesus himself says so.  He confirmed that the criminal who repented would be there in paradise after he died. So today I pray that you would hear Jesus confirming to you that he has a place for you in paradise as well. I pray that with that to look forward to, that you may be filled with such joy that it continues to overflow from you and is contagious to all around you. May God’s joy fill you. And may that joy in you that others see be a sign to them of the good news available to all. 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

NASB:
One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!”  But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” And He said to him, Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

ESV:
One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!”  But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
