Heavenly Father, good evening! What a good evening it is. It is a great evening! Thank you for being with me. Thank you for the new task you have set before me. And thank you for promising to not overwhelm me with it. Thank you for continuing to speak today. Thank you for allowing me to once again pray for your daughter Lindsey, whom you created and formed. And thank you for the scripture to use for this prayer:
But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Cush and Seba in exchange for you. (Isaiah 43:1-3 ESV)
Lord, I’m still here with you. And now I lift up your daughter Lindsey. Lord you have gifted her with so many special talents when you created her. Lindsey, you continue to use those talents and skills that God has given you, day after day, week after week, year after year! I know it is not easy, but God has promised to be there with you. If you ever begin to feel overwhelmed, stop for a moment and ask God for strength. He is with you just waiting for you to ask for anything you need. You are his and he has called you by name. While I can pray for you, it is the Lord your God who is your Savior. And with God at your side, you need not be afraid. There is nothing to fear. God has given you special talents and is delighted to watch you put them to good use. But the glory is his. All the glory goes to God. We give him the glory always. Yes. We give you the glory Lord. Glory! I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
King James Version for your reference:
But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
3 For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. (Isaiah 43:1-3 KJV)
