May your times of fasting bring you great joy and gladness

Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome a new day with you. I share your view that it is good. Thank you for all the aspects of your creation that work together so well. And thank you for the scripture to use for a prayer for Lindsey today:

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. (Zechariah 8:19)

Lord, it’s me. I am here to begin a new prayer for your daughter Lindsey based on an interesting scripture. Lindsey, notice how times of fasting are referred to as times of joy and gladness and as cheerful feasts! When you notice this, perhaps you also can conclude that it is good to love the truth and peace! Lord, I ask that you give Lindsey opportunities to fast and that doing so will bring her great joy. I also ask that you reveal your truth to Lindsey even more now than before and that you help her walk in peace. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

GNT:
The fasts held in the fourth, fifth, seventh, and tenth months will become festivals of joy and gladness for the people of Judah. You must love truth and peace.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
