Be Holy

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the night sky. Thank you for the many stars … not just hundreds or thousands but millions upon millions of individual stars. And thank you for the Perseid meteorite shower which I just watched. Thank you for the clear sky and the lack of moonlight so that the sky would be best for viewing the “shooting stars”. Thank you for this glorious evidence of your creation. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:16)

It is written in Leviticus:

44 For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Leviticus 11:44)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here as every day. I’m here to lift up Lindsey to you. I’m here on her behalf. Lord, you are telling Lindsey to be holy.  You would not tell her to do something that is not possible for her to do, so we know that she can indeed be holy. And so now I ask that you be with her every step of the way. I ask that you would be her strength. I ask that you would surround her with godly people that provide her examples of living holy, being holy.  And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen

New Testament (1 Peter 1:16 ESV):
16 since it is written,“You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

Old Testament (Leviticus 11:44 ESV):
44 For I am the Lordyour God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.You shall not defile yourselves with any swarming thing that crawls on the ground.

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
