When you boast, boast that you know Jesus

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Good Morning! I welcome the new day as a good day. You have declared it as good. Thank you for letting me see bits of your glory and beauty around me. Thank you for making this so clearly evident to me. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer:

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:30-31)

It is written in Jeremiah:

23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Lord, I am here and ready to pray for your daughter Lindsey. I lift Lindsey up to you Lord. Today, Lindsey, I have another big prayer. Today I pray that you would find more ways to boast that you know Jesus. I pray that you would see ways to lift up his name. I pray that Jesus would make it clear to you that he loves you and that you are his friend. I pray that he would open doors for you and that in turn, you would acknowledge him before others, that you would be able to boast about knowing him! And we will give the glory to him. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

New Testament (1 Corinthians 1:30-31 ESV):
30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.

Old Testament (Jeremiah 9:23-24 ESV):
23 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches,24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

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
