Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for community. Thank you that I am able to meet with others around me in the coffee shops and restaurants. Thank you for the conversations and discussions around a table. Thank you that we also can use those times to read your Word aloud around the table. And thank you for this portion of your Word to use for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. (Deuteronomy 7:12-13)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. This scripture also is a good IF… THEN… scripture to remember Lindsey. Look at the promises God gives you if you pay attention to his laws and judgments and are careful to actually do them. Let me pray for you now. Lindsey, I pray that you would take to heart God’s judgments and laws and not just read them, but also strive to follow them as best as you can. I pray that God would be your guide in this pursuit and that he would help you stay on his path not veering to the left nor the right. And then I ask God to love you as he promised. I ask him to bless you as promised. I ask God to prosper you. And we will give him the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the Lord your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your ancestors. He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers. He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land—your grain, new wine and olive oil—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
