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:
4 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
New Testament (1 Timothy 5:17-18 NIV):
17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. 18 For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”
Old Testament (Deuteronomy 25:4 NIV):
4 Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.
Old Testament (Leviticus 19:13 NIV):
13 “‘Do not defraud or rob your neighbor.
“‘Do not hold back the wages of a hired worker overnight.
