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.
2 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,
3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4 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:
9 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
New Testament (Romans 11:2-4 NIV):
2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel:3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”? 4 And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”
Old Testament (1 Kings 19:9-10 NIV):
9 There he went into a cave and spent the night.
And the word of the Lord came to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
10 He replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars,and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.”
Old Testament (1 Kings 19:18 NIV):
18 Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.”
