Do not be dismayed or discouraged for God will strengthen and help you
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for birds. Thank you for the wide variety of birds. Thank you for letting us see how they can fly together, even at times in a formation. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10)
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:13)
Lord, I am here again. I am here on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, if the God of the universe is holding your right hand, what need you be afraid of? If the all powerful God says he will help and uphold you, need you be dismayed? If your zealous compassionate God is strengthening you, need you be discouraged? No, these are not trick questions! Rather they are asking you to remember God’s promises to you. Lord, I ask that you find ways to show Lindsey first hand how you will hold her right hand. I ask that you reveal a bit of your mighty strength to her so that she can KNOW that she need not be afraid. Lord I ask that you place people in her path that can remind of these things. People who will encourage her. Lindsey, you are the daughter of the King – he will not abandon you. He never forgets you. He is with you right now and every moment of your life. And so we gladly give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to God. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Seeing what God HAS done helps us realize that nothing is impossible for him!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for being my provider. Thank you for always providing for my family. Thank you for our meals, our home, our car, our clothes. Thank you for your presence here with us. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37)
Sometimes it is hard to see how that can be true. So that is why we need to remember what he already HAS done:
What hath God wrought! (Numbers 23:23b)
Lord, it’s me. I’m here to lift up your daughter Lindsey to you again. I ask that you continue to do wonders before her very eyes. Let her see you do things that she KNOWS just has to be you. Let her say “See what God has done”! I pray that you let these past examples of your wonders and might will help Lindsey to know that there is nothing that you cannot do Lord. Nothing is impossible for you God. And the scripture below sums both up nicely as it something told to the Israelites AFTER they have been delivered out of Egypt through the middle of the Red Sea and after all the miracles performed before Pharaoh. God told Moses that he has seen nothing yet! God told Moses to expect to see even greater marvels and wonders! Lord, let Lindsey see what marvels you have already done. But also let her eagerly expect even greater wonders to come. Let us both say, “See what God will do!” And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
NOTE: I paused in the middle of writing this prayer for an hour of reading scripture around a table at Wendy’s and this scripture popped up (seems to consolidate both scriptures for this prayer):
And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the Lord: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee. (Exodus 34:10)
Desire a Good Name and Good Reputation More Than Great Wealth
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for hands and fingers that work so well. Thank you for my knees and my feet that I can get around so easily. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1)
Lord, I’m here again as usual. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you more than silver and gold. Lindsey, today I pray that you review your life again. Watch that your desire is to maintain your good name and good reputation rather than accumulate wealth and riches. This scripture indicates that it is a choice that is before you. I pray that God would help you make the better choice. Follow his way and watch your reputation soar. And the glory goes to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Keep your heart pure with God’s Word and he will not let you wander
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the mist in the air – I like to refer to it as liquid air because it isn’t quite raining, yet you get wet! And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. (Psalm 119:9-10)
Lord, it’s me. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey and am ready for our next prayer. Lindsey, today I pray that you would maintain a pure life. I pray that you would guard your heart by daily immersing yourself in God’s Word. I pray that you would seek after God with all your heart, and I ask that God would help you to stay on the path he sets before you and not wander off. I pray that God would protect you and not allow you to stray from his commandments. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
May those around you notice things accomplished with the help of your God!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the falling leaves. Thank you for the many colors in those falling leaves. Thank you for how trees change from bare branches, to green leaves, to orange and red leaves and back to bare branches again, year after year after year. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days. And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God. (Nehemiah 6:15-16)
Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Today I pray for you Lindsey… I pray that you would continue doing the things God sets before you. I pray that you also continue to let people know that you are following God, following Jesus, and that he is your guide. Lord I pray that as Lindsey accomplishes things for your kingdom that those around her would take note and realize that her accomplishments were all done with the help of her God. And Lindsey, I pray that you would have the courage to continue on the journey on the path that God sets before you even when it goes into the midst of those who are totally unhappy with how you refer to your God in the midst of your life. Notice that this scripture refers to “our enemies”. In your case it might be “your detractors”, but this scripture does not advise “taking down” the enemies or detractors. Rather it speaks about doing God’s will so that they will notice the good. And we both can give God the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Remember to pray for God’s protection during your travels
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taking care of us. Thank you for being our provider. Yes, and thank you for also being our protector! Thank you for being so faithful. Help our faith as well today please! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was entreated of us. (Ezra 8:21-23)
Lord, I am here. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am here to lift her up and to pray for her. Lindsey, this scripture is just a small piece of a good story. This is a story about the king allowing and supporting Ezra and all who were to travel with him to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. It seems that Ezra realized that the king knew that he and those travelling with him believed in the Almighty God, the All Powerful God. And so Ezra realized, that if they asked the king to protect them as they traveled that the king might wonder why their God was not the one protecting them. And so Ezra proclaimed a fast. They fasted and prayed to God for protection on their journey… and he answered them! And so now I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that you would always look to God for your protection during your travels. Pray before each trip and ask God to be with you and protect you and all who are travelling with you. Pray and expect that God will hear your prayer (because he will!) Lord, I join with Lindsey in this. I join with her in praying to you to protect her and her team wherever they travel, wherever their journey takes them. I pray that you would let Lindsey see first hand your protection. Let your protection over her be real to her. Give her confidence, not only in her talents … but confidence in her God! And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
God’s Banner Over You is Love
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taking care of my family. Thank you for reminding me each year that I have one foot in heaven!* And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. (Song of Solomon 2:4)
Lord, I am here on behalf of Lindsey again. I ask that you find ways today to illustrate to her how you have placed your banner of love over her. I ask that you show this to her in a way that means something to her. I ask that you reveal more about your banner of love to her this day. And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
* For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3)
* So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (Mark 16:19)
[If my life is hid with Christ and he is in heaven, then it seems natural to consider that I have one foot in heaven already]
Accept God’s Deliverance and Be Holy, Otherwise You May Get What You Deserve
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my life. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for healing my knees. Thank you for helping me to maintain a thankful heart. And thank you for the scripture for today for Lindsey:
For the day of the Lord is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. (Obadiah 1:15-17)
Lord, here I am. I am here to lift up Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I pray that you will remind her how you have delivered her. Lindsey, Jesus died for your sins so that you don’t get what you deserve (which is death). Instead you are delivered, rescued, saved! So live holy and full of joy. May those around you want what you have and accept God’s deliverance as well. And all the glory we give to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
You Are a Dear Child of God – A Child of Light!
Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my good health. Thank you for all those who watch over my health. And thank you for providing scriptures for my prayers for your daughter Lindsey each and every day especially today as I start another 40 days of praying for your daughter with special prayers!
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (Ephesians 5:1-8)
Lord, I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, you are a dearly loved daughter of God. And today’s scripture reminds you that as such, you need to walk in love! This is not always easy, so today I pray that the Lord would walk with you and fill you with his joy as your strength so you can walk together in love wherever you go! Just look where God is leading you and follow that path! Avoid all the things that you know are wrong and walk with integrity. Lord, I ask that you protect Lindsey from any deception that she may encounter. At those times remind her of your truth. Shine your light on her Lord, so that she can walk as a child of light. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. GLORY! I pray and ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
