Who Will You Eat With?

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for walking. Thank you for my knees that work so well. Thank you for my feet that know where they are going. Yes, thank you for how my body can just work together so well to accomplish a walk in the city with you! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him. And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners? (Mark 2:15-16)

Lord, it’s me again. I’m back again as usual to begin a new day’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today it seems that this may be an unusual prayer, for I am praying that you continue to be careful who you eat and drink with. And I really need to include myself in this prayer as well. We need to be careful to often find ways to sit with the lost. We need to fine time for them and not just for our friends. So, I pray that God would grant us favor in this. I ask that he would open doors of opportunity to eat and drink with publicans, tax collectors and sinners. I ask that he enlarge our hearts for them. I also ask that he guard our hearts so that we can be the light to the world and not be led astray ourselves. I pray that God would guard our minds if people start wondering about who we are sitting with. I ask that he give us the words whenever we need them. And together we will give him the glory. The glory all goes to him. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

ESV:
And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.  And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

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
