Ask in Jesus’s name so the Father may be glorified

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the morning sunlight and gentle breeze. Thank you for the wisps of clouds. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14)

Lord, I’m here again to begin another prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray that the Father may be glorified as I ask in the name of Christ Jesus for wisdom and discernment for you. I ask that he grant you extended wisdom and discernment over and above of all that you already have. I ask that he shine a light on all that you should see and shield you from all that is not for you. I ask that you, in turn, would be a light to others and that they could see Jesus in you wherever you go. And the glory is all his! I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Follow Jesus

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for never leaving me. Thank you for being with me even when others seem distant. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. (Matthew 4:19)

Lord, I’m here again as usual. This is an important time for me each day when I can sit with you and talk with you. And now I lift up your daughter Lindsey. Lindsey, I pray that you will continue to follow Jesus. I pray that the Lord would let you be a fisher of men, of people wherever you go. I pray that people would be drawn to what you say as you lift up the name of Jesus. And all the glory is to him. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

When asking, ask in the name of Jesus!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for your continued protection. Thank you for watching over my family. And thank you for the scripture that reminds us that we can indeed pray and ask in the name of Jesus:

[Jesus said:] Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to sit with you. I ask for your rest. I ask for both myself and for Lindsey, your daughter. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, just as you instructed me to. And the glory is all yours. All the glory is to God. Amen (more…)

Pray that you will not fall into temptation!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for allowing me to be calm in the midst of a storm. Thank you for often calming the storm as well. And thank you for the scripture that has Jesus telling us that it is OK for us to pray for ourselves!

And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. (Luke 22:40)

Lord, I’m here to pray for your daughter Lindsey again. Today, Lindsey, Jesus is telling you that it is OK for you to pray for yourself! Yes, I will pray for you as well, but here is something you can pray for every day. Pray that you will not fall into temptation. I join you in this prayer. Lord, I ask that you protect Lindsey from all the temptation that is around her, especially as she is on tour. Let her know that you are there with her and that you always give her a way out of any temptation that presents itself before her. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

During your daily reading of the Bible Jesus is there in your midst!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my good health. Thank you for showing me how to maintain a thankful heart. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer this day for Lindsey, your daughter:

[Jesus said:] For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20)

Lord, I’m here again to lift up Lindsey to you. She has committed to reading your word with others every day this year. I ask that each time she gets together with someone to read your word, that you would make your presence known to them. Let them be aware of you right there with them. Let them know that you are there among them. Let them sense that you are there in their midst. And all the glory goes to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I ask all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

God’s Kingdom is in our midst within us now, though not with something observable

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for giving us your Word. Thank you for all the people who preserved it and those that diligently translated it into our language so that we could read it ourselves. Thank you for bringing us understanding as we read it so that it is not just a lot of words. And thank you for the scripture to use for the prayer today where Jesus tells us about the kingdom of God:

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)

Lord, it’s me again. I am here to pray for your daughter Lindsey. And today I pray that your kingdom would be right there within her in such a way that she can feel it. Let her know that God’s kingdom is right there within her. Lindsey, I pray that you will not need to ask for a sign because the kingdom has come in a way that is not observable, yet it is real. Lord, make your kingdom real for Lindsey today. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Continue reading the Word every day to be a true disciple of Jesus

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. It is so interesting how music can be soothing, can be invigorating, can be inspiring. It is interesting that our ears can pick up all the fine details of music, how loud, how fast, what pitch, harmony, melody and so much more. Thank you for music Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter:

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:31-32)

Lord, I am here. I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, today I pray that you will continue what you stated as your New Year’s resolution … that you would find time each day to read the Word, to read the Bible.  If there is no time, I pray that you will be willing to make the time. I pray that this would remain a priority for you today and the rest of the year. I pray that God would meet with you each time you open the Bible and that he would reveal the truth to you making you free. And all the glory we give to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Stay Humble – Let God Exalt You!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the children. Thank you for their example of how to not complicate things, that simple is ok. Being childlike is not a problem, but a solution. Thank you for the joy in the eyes of the children involved in such simple things. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (Luke 14:11)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here again as usual on behalf of your daughter. I’m here to pray for her. Lindsey, I pray that you can remain humble, and let Jesus exalt you in his way. God’s favor has given you great fame. I pray that you will not let it go to your head. I pray that you keep your feet planted firmly on the ground (except when you are leaping and dancing). I pray that God would extend his favor and help you to remain humble, day after day after day. And the glory is all his. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

It Is Finished… When?

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my breath. Thank you for lungs that work so wonderfully. Thank you for the air that fills my lungs. Thank you for my breath, my life, my life with you. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (John 19:30)

Lord, I’m here again to pray for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am here as always, every day. And today I am praying for you Lindsey. I am praying that God would show you when you can say “It is finished”. Not everyone was healed, yet Jesus the healer said it was finished. Lindsey, I pray that you too would recognize when to declare something finished. I pray that you would recognize what was set before you and what is being left for others. I pray that God would grant you the wisdom and discernment to separate all that is before you each day and to know which is for you and what is not. I pray that God would give you peace as you do all that he has set before you and that you would not want to do more than what he asked.  And all the glory goes to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

As prophesied, Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted and set the bruised free

Good morning Heavenly Father. I welcome the new day with you. Looking out the window I see evidence of majesty, of your creation. Flowers. Many kinds of flowers. Many, many flowers of each kind. Trees. Many different trees. Bushes. Grass. Clouds. Tree leaves swaying in the breeze. All this you created just for us! Thank you! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. (Luke 4:16-21)

Lord, I’m glad to be able to be here again … as usual … to sit with you. I am happy to come on behalf of Lindsey each day. And today’s scripture is quite interesting. Jesus read out of the Old Testament and proclaimed that it was a prophecy, and that he was fulfilling it! And it is quite a prophecy! Look at what he says he will do:

  • Preach the Gospel, the Good News to the poor
  • Heal the brokenhearted
  • Proclaim deliverance and freedom to the captives
  • Recovery of sight for the blind
  • Freedom and liberty for the bruised and oppressed
  • Announce, proclaim and preach the acceptable year of the Lord, the time of God’s favor

Lindsey, I know that you are following Jesus. You are clinging to him each and every day no matter where you are. Perhaps he would like to work through you. Perhaps you can be a way for the brokenhearted to be healed. Perhaps the oppressed can see hope. And perhaps you can show how God’s favor can be had right now, this day, this very hour. Just perhaps. And it is that “perhaps” that I pray over you today. I pray that God would show you if any of these “perhaps” are for you and for your journey. And then I pray that God would continue to fill you with his joy which can be your strength. I pray that he would continue to give you the courage to actually DO what he is asking of you. And finally I pray that he would give you the words. I pray that he would give you the words that others need to hear. And we will give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to God. I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
