Oh what Wonders God has prepared for you since you love him!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my health, my heart and my head. Thank you for your word and for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-11)

This refers to Isaiah:

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. (Isaiah 64:4)

Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to pray for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Today I pray wonders over you Lindsey. Just think! Think of all the wonderful and interesting things you have seen on your world travels. Think of all the cool things you have heard. This scripture reminds us that all of it … everything that you have seen and heard can’t compare to what God has prepared for those who love him as you do. And he loves you too! He really does! So, now I pray that God would give you a vision or dream of the things waiting for you. I pray that he would give you just a taste of the wonders waiting for you! And together let’s give the glory to him. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

When you boast, boast that you know Jesus

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Good Morning! I welcome the new day as a good day. You have declared it as good. Thank you for letting me see bits of your glory and beauty around me. Thank you for making this so clearly evident to me. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer:

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:30-31)

It is written in Jeremiah:

23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Lord, I am here and ready to pray for your daughter Lindsey. I lift Lindsey up to you Lord. Today, Lindsey, I have another big prayer. Today I pray that you would find more ways to boast that you know Jesus. I pray that you would see ways to lift up his name. I pray that Jesus would make it clear to you that he loves you and that you are his friend. I pray that he would open doors for you and that in turn, you would acknowledge him before others, that you would be able to boast about knowing him! And we will give the glory to him. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

May God Grant You Discernment and Godly Wisdom

κόσμου (Strong #2889) transliteration: kosmos – order, the world (definition:  the world, universe; worldly affairs; the inhabitants of the world; adornment) [see online reference]

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. Thank you for ears to hear it. Thank you for those talented to compose it and for those gifted to be able to play it! And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. (1 Corinthians 3:19)

It is written in Job:

13 [Eliphaz is speaking] He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong. (Job 5:13)

Lord, it’s me again. I am enjoying my time sitting with you. It is wonderful knowing that I can come sit with you at any time, day or night.  And right now I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who loves you very much. Lindsey, I pray that God would give you discernment and godly wisdom. I pray that he would allow you to see what the world calls wisdom as foolish in his eyes. I pray that God would grant you wisdom beyond your years. I pray that God would give you opportunities to share with others the wisdom of God. I pray that he will let you see how the schemes and craftiness of the world are NOT the answer, nor to be desired. Lindsey, I pray that God will watch over you and surround you with godly people. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

(P) Priscilla – Unafraid of Controversy from a Faithful Life

Lindsey, today was the day that my computer crashed. I had to do a factory reset on it, followed by over 150 Windows updates and then reinstall a few of my programs. I thought that I had written the prayer for you after that but it seems like I was too distracted and forgot. However, you know that you are in my prayers all day long, so only the written one was missed, and I will do double duty for today!

And so … now I pray that you would be unafraid of any controversy that may result from your leading a fully faithful life, just as Priscilla was so committed to a faithful life that she risked her life for Paul’s sake! I pray that God would be your guide, your strength and your protector and that he would grant you more wisdom and discernment this week!

Heavenly Father, good morning as I reflect back a day. I recall your generosity through the day. I recall that you were there with me always. I remember how you promised to never leave me. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the story of Priscilla who stepped out in faith even as far as having the church meet in her house, as your scriptures relay to us:

The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. (1 Corinthians 16:19)

and she even opened her home as the place for Paul to stay:

After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. (Acts 18:1-3)

and Paul remembers how she risked her life for him:

Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. (Romans 16:3-4)

Lord, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love.  I pray that you would give her opportunities to be generous and share her home with others.  I pray that you would grant Lindsey more understanding about your Word and about Jesus and that she could clarify the full truth for others. And I pray for God’s protection over you Lindsey whenever you lay your life on the line for someone else. 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 (more…)

(X) EXcel in Edifying and Building Up the Church

Heavenly Father, thank you for indoor plants that keep our air fresh and oxygenated. Thank you for the beauty of indoor plants and flowers. Thank you for the many different colors of flower. Thank you for valuing variety! And thank you for the scripture that I can use for the letter X based on the syllable pronounced like “x”:

Even so ye, for as much as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. (1 Corinthians 14:12)

Lord, I need to sit with you today. I need your help myself and ask that you clarify things around me. I ask for more understanding and wisdom Lord. And of course I also am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. She is zealous Lord. She is extremely zealous and so I ask that you find ways that she may excel in edifying and building up your church. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(K) You are Known by God

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for surrounding me with godly people and thank you for safely putting me in the path of many others. Thank you for knowing me as promised in the scripture for the letter K in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

But if any man love God, the same is known of him. (1 Corinthians 8:3)

Lord, I’m here again to lift up your daughter Lindsey. She loves you Lord, so we know that you know her! I ask that you remind her today that you know her. Let her know that you know her name. Let her know that you know what she needs this day. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Amen (more…)

(E) You are Enriched by Jesus Christ

Hello Heavenly Father… thank you for another day, another day anew with you. Thank you for the sunrise and the sunset. Thank you for the clouds, the wind and the snow and the rain, Thank you for the changing weather. And thank you for the scripture for the letter E regarding how you are taking care of your daughter Lindsey:

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: (1 Corinthians 1:4-6)

Lord, it is nice to come sit with you again today as I am here to thank you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Thank you for the grace you have given to her. And thank you for enriching her in every thing, in everything she says and does and in everything she knows. I ask that you give her an extra helping of this enrichment this day. Let today be a very enriched day for her. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
