Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. (John 2:14-17)
Yes, this was written in the Psalms:
9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. (Psalm 69:9)
Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual on behalf of your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray for you to be zealous. I have watched how you are totally zealous for your violin and your music. Zealousness is one of your gifts! And today I pray that this zealousness would extend to your relationship with God. Lord, I ask that you open up opportunities for Lindsey to be zealous for you! And we will give you all the glory. The glory is all yours. I ask all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
New Testament (John 2:14-17 HCSB):
14 In the temple complex He found people selling oxen, sheep, and doves, and He also found the money changers sitting there. 15 After making a whip out of cords, He drove everyone out of the temple complex with their sheep and oxen. He also poured out the money changers’ coins and overturned the tables. 16 He told those who were selling doves, “Get these things out of here! Stop turning My Father’s house into a marketplace!”
17 And His disciples remembered that it is written: Zeal for Your house will consume Me.
Old Testament (Psalm 69:9 HCSB):
9 because zeal for Your house has consumed me,
and the insults of those who insult You
have fallen on me.
