Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for creating this magnificent universe just for us. Thank you for the tiny and for the huge. Huge as in stars… and galaxies! And thank you for the scripture to use for this prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3)
Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today’s scripture is interesting in that it seems to talk about having scriptures read out loud! This resonates well with me because for over six years a tiny group of us has been meeting every weekday morning in a coffee shop or restaurant to read scriptures out loud around our table. It is quite amazing how much reading a passage out loud helps … especially if you also hear it read out loud TO YOU! And so that seems to be what I am to pray for. Lindsey, I pray that you will be able to read scriptures out loud with a tiny group that you trust. I pray that you will be able to LISTEN as others in the tiny group read passages of scripture aloud. I pray that speaking and hearing them will bring you further understanding. I pray that this also will be a way to get together with others regularly with God’s Word! 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
Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy aloud, and blessed are those who hear and obey the things written in it, because the time is near!
