Hold fast to the Lord during times of shaking!

Heavenly Father. Good Morning. Thank you for life. Thank you for love. Thank you for joy. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:26-29)

It was said in Haggai:

For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:6-7)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. And now I pray this scripture over you Lindsey. It speaks of being shaken. Being shaken so hard that only that which cannot be shaken remains. I pray that any time you feel like you are being shaken, that God would let you see the things that he is shaking off from you. Hold fast to the Lord during times of shaking! I pray that the Lord would show you the unshakable things that remain with you. I pray that the Lord would let you know that he is there with you and hasn’t left you, for he is filling the house with glory, his glory! I pray that he grants you grace that you will be able to serve him with both reverence and awe, for he is a consuming fire. And the glory is his. All the glory is his. We give him all the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Be content and courageous every day. Never be afraid for God promised to never leave you.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the reflections in the water on the streets. Thank you for the ripples of slowly falling rain drops in the puddles. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)

Yes, in Joshua he said:

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Joshua 1:5)

And a few lines later he rephrases it:

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:9)

Lord, I am here again and ready to begin a new prayer for Lindsey your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray courage over you. This day I pray contentedness around you. I pray that you would be content in any and all situations. I pray that wherever you go, that you would always remember that God is there with you. Lord, I ask that each day you find a way to show yourself to Lindsey, to call to her mind that you are there with her just as you promised. Lindsey, remember that God will never leave you nor fail you so you can walk with courage and need never to be afraid. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Show your gratitude and appreciation day by day

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the godly friends you placed in my life. Thank you for their support and their advice. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter:

17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. (1 Timothy 5:17-18)

In Deuteronomy the scriptures say:

Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. (Deuteronomy 25:4)

And in Leviticus the scriptures say:

13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. (Leviticus 19:13)

Lord, it’s me. I am here to sit with you. I’m here to enter into your rest. I need that rest. But right now I am ready to begin my prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, it is interesting how Paul is advising Timothy by referring to scriptures! He reminds him that a laborer is worthy of being paid or rewarded. So, I pray that wherever you go, that you would find ways to reward all those travelling with you as well as helping behind the scenes. I pray that God would show you day by day ways to show your gratitude and appreciation. 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…)

Eagerly look for Jesus. Delight and celebrate his presence with you!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for walking. Thank you for legs that walk so well. Thank you for the magnificent view as I walk outside. Thank you for walking with me … it is a delight I eagerly look forward to each day. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. (Luke 7:27)

Yes, it is written in Malachi:

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:1)

Lord, I am here again. I am eager to begin the new prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you would eagerly look for Jesus and that you would delight and celebrate his presence with you. I pray that the Lord would come to meet you each time you diligently look for him, regardless of where you are. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Joyful in Prayer! Rejoice while Praying!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for watching over me while I sleep since you never sleep nor slumber. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. (Mark 11:17)

It is written in the book of Isaiah:

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (Isaiah 56:7)

Lord, it’s me. I’m happy to sit with you. Praying is a joy… I rejoice as I pray for your daughter you love, just as you rejoice as you watch over her. Lindsey, today I pray for your prayers. I pray that your times of prayer are joyful. I pray that you rejoice to be talking with God while you pray. I pray that you look forward to your times of prayer and that God would often let you feel his presence around you as you pray. And together we give the glory to him. All the glory is to God. I pray this joyfully in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

You are NOT alone! But even Elijah at times felt alone (but wasn’t!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for a new day with you. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey.

God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. (Romans 11:2-4)

Yes, Elijah did say this to God:

And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. (1 Kings 19:9-10)

And God did reply to him:

18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. (1 Kings 19:18)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today I remind you that you are not rejected, as Paul said in today’s scripture. I also remind you that you are not alone, just as Paul quoted the story of Elijah in the book of Kings. Elijah thought he was alone. But God spoke to him and clearly let him know that he was by no means alone! I pray this over you today Lindsey. If you ever feel alone, call to mind this story of how even one of the greatest prophets felt totally alone and depressed. I pray that God will speak clearly to you in those times just as he did for Elijah. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Love life? Then watch your tongue, do good and pursue peace

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for bright sunshine this morning. Thank you for the clean clear crisp air. Thank you for the joy of seeing bits of your glory all around me. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (1 Peter 3:10-12)

This is what the FOR is referring to:

12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. (Psalm 34:12-16)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here to begin today’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you continue to love life and desire many more good days ahead of you. What should you do? Interesting how Peter is quoting from what David wrote in Psalm 34. It seems like there are three things that both Peter and David say are important for you to do. First, watch what you say; guard your mouth … and interesting how that ties in with my prior prayers that speak to the condition of your heart. Next, turn away from evil and do good! Finally, pursue peace. So, today I pray these over you Lindsey. I pray that in your journey with God, that you would always watch what you are saying, always aim to do good and see peace as a goal worth pursuing. I pray that God would grant you the grace you need in this and that he would always show you the path to follow … for the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears hear your prayers. And we will give the glory to him. All glory goes to God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Fill your heart with good treasures

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the rains needed by the plants and animals. Thank you for the sun for warmth as well as for light in the day. And thank you for the lights in the night – the moon and all the stars. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40)

Yes, the book of Jonah says this:

17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jonah 1:17)

Yes, but why did Jesus refer to Jonah at all? It was because the scribes and Pharisees had an attitude problem and were demanding a sign or miracle right then and there! Thus this scripture is a good follow up from the prayer of yesterday where I prayed that you would watch over your heart that it would not become hardened:

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (Matthew 12:34-39)

Lord, I’m back (as usual). I am ready to begin another prayer for Lindsey. Today’s scripture is interesting on many levels. We begin by hearing Jesus refer to his coming death, burial and resurrection by comparing it to the prophet Jonah. Jonah thought he was running away from God, but he ended up being the sign for the ages! But I think it it is just as interesting to see what had just happened before Jesus said this. He saw the generation around him and warned them to look at their hearts! He even gave them an easy way to tell if their hearts were filled with good or with evil.. just look at what they say and do. And so once again I pray for your heart Lindsey. Jesus considered your heart as essential and said that you could store up good or evil in it. I pray that today you store up much good in your heart. I pray that each day you actively look for ways that you can store up good treasures in your heart to keep it fully filled. I also pray that you always will pay attention to what you say because Jesus said it comes from the abundance of your heart. I pray that you will always use this as an early detection system for your heart. If you notice evil coming out of your mouth, I pray that you would find time to pause and refill your heart with good treasures again. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Don’t look at what you are lacking. Look at your abundance while guarding your heart.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taste. Thank you for letting us taste the things we eat and drink. Thank you for your creation filled with such a wide variety of tastes. Thank you for things that taste sweet as well as bitter or sour. Thank you for both hot and cold tastes that can differ. Thank you for all these things that we tend to take for granted every day. And thank you for the scriptures to use in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. (2 Corinthians 8:11-15)

Yes, it is written in Exodus:

17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. (Exodus 16:17-18)

Lord, as usual, here I am. I come to sit with you every day… many times during the day. But right now I wish to begin a new prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, these short scriptures say much, and I will pray them over you now. First I pray that you will not worry about what you don’t have. Scriptures clearly say that God is looking at what you do with what you DO have. I pray that you will be able to cease worrying about what you are lacking so that you can focus on what you have in abundance! Finally, I pray that God would guide you in your abundance. When you have an abundance of something I pray that God would show you ways to help others with it. I pray that you will always find ways to share your talents and skills with others, but also I pray a bigger prayer. I pray that greed would not tempt you. I pray that you would always see ways to share your abundance with others and that the Lord would reward you with joy in your heart. I pray that you would never lack joy in your heart. I believe I also can share something God told me seven years ago. Yes, this was a word for ME, and not for anyone else. But it did come to mind as I was writing this prayer for you today. “There is no need to fear what we are lacking. Rather fear the hardening of our hearts.” I pray that you would watch over your heart Lindsey. Watch for signs that it is hardening and then take action to keep a soft heart. I pray that God would be your guide in this each day of your journey. And we will give the glory to him. All the glory goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

What must you DO?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for letting me see the many ways that we can help those around us, especially those who are critically ill. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. (Luke 3:4-6)

And we find that Isaiah did say this:

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 40:3-5)

But what is interesting is that in the very next sentences Luke tells of how John the Baptist warned the people who came out to him! He did not mince words but came right out and told them that they could not just sit back and do nothing claiming to be a son or daughter of God! They had to DO things too! Their ACTIONS had to confirm their BELIEF!

Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. (Luke 3:8)

And so the people ask him … well, just what ARE we supposed to do? And it was interesting that his answer varied depending upon who they were and what they did for their living!

10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. (Luke 3:10-14)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Lord, I think that she may be asking you the same thing all these people were asking of John the Baptist! She may be saying, “Yes, I am a daughter of God … so what must I DO?” Lord, I pray that you answer her. I pray that you speak clearly to her, just as clearly as John the Baptist did! He told the Tax Collectors to only collect the correct amount of tax and nothing more (nothing extra for themselves). He told the Soldiers that they must do something different than that. The soldiers were to be content with their wages – and to not extort money nor accuse people falsely. Lord, Lindsey is not a soldier. She is not a tax collector. She is one of the crowd though … and so it seems that one thing she might do is to give clothes and food to those who need them. But what else specifically for a talented touring musician? Lord, I pray for you to sit with Lindsey and to let her know the answer to this very important question “What must I DO?” I pray that you let her know it is you speaking to her. I pray that you take her aside every now and then to remind of of the things you are asking her to DO. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
