Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for eye-hand coordination. Even more … thank you for the amazing ability to type quickly without even seeing my hands or the keyboard. Thank you for the many wonders that are part of my life constantly that I often take for granted without thought. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
19 [Jesus said] Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. (Mark 10:19)
Those commandments are written in Exodus:
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Exodus 20:12-16)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m ready for another day lifting up Lindsey to you. I’m ready to begin another daily prayer for your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray that you would remember the commandments. They must be important since Jesus referred to them as such, quoting what was written in scriptures, in Exodus! I pray that remembering them would only be the start for you. Actually obeying them is what Jesus wants. And so I pray that more than just knowing them, that you would do them. I pray that doing them would just be natural for you, that following these commandments would be a no-brainer for you. And we, in turn, 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
New Testament (Mark 10:19 ESV):
19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’”

12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
