Let Jesus’s words abide and remain in you… then ask for your desires

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for restoring me, for rescuing me, for replenishing me. And thank you for providing the scriptures to use in my prayers based on things that Jesus said, including the one for today:

[Jesus said:] If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (John 15:7)

Lord, I’m here again on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Lindsey, today I pray that you will continue to abide in Jesus. I pray that you will continue your daily reading of Scriptures and ask that the Lord would embed the words within you. I pray that you would continue and remain in Jesus and in his word. And then I pray that the Lord would grant you what you desire, what you need, what you want. 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…)

Ask in Jesus’s name so the Father may be glorified

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the morning sunlight and gentle breeze. Thank you for the wisps of clouds. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14)

Lord, I’m here again to begin another prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray that the Father may be glorified as I ask in the name of Christ Jesus for wisdom and discernment for you. I ask that he grant you extended wisdom and discernment over and above of all that you already have. I ask that he shine a light on all that you should see and shield you from all that is not for you. I ask that you, in turn, would be a light to others and that they could see Jesus in you wherever you go. And the glory is all his! I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

When asking, ask in the name of Jesus!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for your continued protection. Thank you for watching over my family. And thank you for the scripture that reminds us that we can indeed pray and ask in the name of Jesus:

[Jesus said:] Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to sit with you. I ask for your rest. I ask for both myself and for Lindsey, your daughter. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, just as you instructed me to. And the glory is all yours. All the glory is to God. Amen (more…)

Continue reading the Word every day to be a true disciple of Jesus

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. It is so interesting how music can be soothing, can be invigorating, can be inspiring. It is interesting that our ears can pick up all the fine details of music, how loud, how fast, what pitch, harmony, melody and so much more. Thank you for music Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter:

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:31-32)

Lord, I am here. I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, today I pray that you will continue what you stated as your New Year’s resolution … that you would find time each day to read the Word, to read the Bible.  If there is no time, I pray that you will be willing to make the time. I pray that this would remain a priority for you today and the rest of the year. I pray that God would meet with you each time you open the Bible and that he would reveal the truth to you making you free. And all the glory we give to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

It Is Finished… When?

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my breath. Thank you for lungs that work so wonderfully. Thank you for the air that fills my lungs. Thank you for my breath, my life, my life with you. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (John 19:30)

Lord, I’m here again to pray for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am here as always, every day. And today I am praying for you Lindsey. I am praying that God would show you when you can say “It is finished”. Not everyone was healed, yet Jesus the healer said it was finished. Lindsey, I pray that you too would recognize when to declare something finished. I pray that you would recognize what was set before you and what is being left for others. I pray that God would grant you the wisdom and discernment to separate all that is before you each day and to know which is for you and what is not. I pray that God would give you peace as you do all that he has set before you and that you would not want to do more than what he asked.  And all the glory goes to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

You can have an Abundant Life!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for teeth. Thank you for my good chewing teeth. Thank you for how well teeth work! And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey for today’s prayer:

[Jesus said:] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:9-10)

Lord, I’m here. It’s me. I am ready to lift up your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that the Lord would give you an abundant life, just as he promised. All you need to do is open the door to Jesus and enter in.  You can come and go in peace. I pray that each day you would look for that door that is Jesus and that each day Jesus would in turn give you a more abundant life. And we will give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Jesus has prepared a mansion for you

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank  you for Lindsey’s joy, honesty and good example. And thank you for the scripture to use as I am beginning prayers based on things that Jesus said:

[Jesus said:] Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:1-3)

Lord, I’m here to lift up Lindsey to you. I am here on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, keep on believing in God. Keep on believing in Jesus, for in his Father’s house there are many mansions and he is preparing a place for you! Yes, he is setting up a place in a mansion just for you. And he will come again to take you there. I pray that he would let you know personally that this is indeed true. So, we now give all the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

You are being gathered together with other sons and daughters of God

Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome a new day. I welcome a new day with you. Thank you for letting me begin again today, to begin anew, to begin anew with you! And thank you for the scripture confirming again that your daughter Lindsey is indeed a child of God being gathered into one!

And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.  And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples. (John 11:49-54)

Lord, I am here with joy today because I am beginning another 40 days of prayer for your daughter you love. These next 40 days I will be using scriptures about music, singing and dancing as a basis of my prayers. But for the first prayer I will use the Gospel of John to confirm that you are gathering the children of God together. Lindsey, you are a daughter of God. You are being gathered together with other sons and daughters. Jesus died for you Lindsey. And John has said that Jesus died so that you could be gathered together as one as a child of God. And that is glorious. Yes, glorious. And we 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…)

(Y) YOU! (Yes, YOU!)

Lindsey, today is letter Y for our A to Z of Women in the Bible, and the woman for the letter Y is YOU! Yes, you Lindsey. For in his Gospel, John specifically states that Jesus was praying for everyone who believes in him through their word! And so I repeat Jesus’s prayer that we may all be one. I pray that you and I and all the others who believe in Jesus will be one so that the world may believe!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the rain and for all your creation that depends upon it. Thank you for your sunlight that is so necessary for all life here. And thank you for including Lindsey in your scripture as one of those who believe on you:

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 17:20-21)

Lord, here I am. I am here to pray for your daughter with this special scripture that refers specifically to her. Lindsey, today I pray for you as someone who chose to believe in Jesus based on the testimony of his disciples. I pray that you too would continue to give your own testimony as to Jesus, how he died for you to redeem you and how he rose from the dead conquering death. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(M) Mary Magdalene (followed Jesus to the End and the Risen New Life)

Lindsey, I pray that you would have a devotion to Jesus like that of Mary Magdalene. She followed him, ministered to him and cared for him. She stuck with him right to the foot of the cross. She was there when he was buried. And she was there when the stone rolled away and was the first witness to the resurrection. Yes, I pray that like Mary Magdalene you would follow Jesus wherever he leads you.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for smells. Yes, outside there is the smells of a new morning dawning and inside the smells of coffee and cinnamon pastries. Outside it can get quite windy while inside it is always calm. Thank you for all that is inside and out! And thank you for the scriptures relating to Mary Magdalene, the woman in the Bible for the letter M:

There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem. (Mark 15:40-41)

Lord, yep, it’s me. I am back again as usual. I am ready to pray for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that your journey always will include Jesus, that you would acknowledge him where ever you go. While you haven’t witnessed his life, his death and his resurrection, you can witness for him by your life, your light and your laugh. And we can give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
