Good Morning Heavenly Father. Today is a very special day for your daughter. It is Lindsey’s birthday. But then, you already knew that :)
Thank you for allowing me to pray for Lindsey for all these months. And thank you for cereal. Yes, I too totally enjoy cereal both morning, noon and night … as does Lindsey. You know what cereal she likes. I thank you for the cereals with lower carbs, especially my favorite: Special K Cinnamon Pecan … crunchy rice and wheat flakes with pecans and cinnamon! Mmmm. And thank you for your Word and for this psalm that tells us all to be righteous and upright in heart and to REJOICE:
Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. (Psalm 32:11)
Lord, I’m here. I’ve been waiting for this day for it is Lindsey’s birthday. And so I am happy that your scripture for today is all about rejoicing and being glad. However it is conditional. Lindsey, I pray that you remain upright in heart. Guard your heart. I pray that you will remain righteous in the midst of so many worldly temptations. However … you then can jump up and down and shout for joy. You then can be glad in the Lord. You then can rejoice! So … let us say together, “Oh Happy Day!” and I will add to that … Happy Birthday! And while we are rejoicing, let’s remember to give the glory to God. All the glory goes to him. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
You that are righteous, be glad and rejoice
because of what the Lord has done.
You that obey him, shout for joy!
