All the disciples scattered when Jesus was arrested… will you?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for showing so clearly how Jesus himself confirmed that prior scriptures were not be replaced by him, but rather that he was encompassing them. The old and the new are interconnected. Today’s two scriptures show this quite well:

And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. (Mark 14:27)

Yes, it was written in Zechariah:

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. (Zechariah 13:7)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I pray that you will make yourself known to her. Lindsey, today’s scripture refers to all the disciples scattering when Jesus was arrested. Even Peter, who was so very confident that he would stand by Jesus no matter what. If we wonder what we would have done, we have the advantage of knowing the end of the story. We know that Jesus rose from the dead victoriously, so we need not worry nor be afraid nor scatter. So, that is my prayer for you Lindsey. I pray that you would know Jesus so well, that even when things look bad, you will still cling to him… actually, especially when things look bad! I pray that the Lord would grant you the courage to stick with him wherever you go. 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…)

With God, all things are possible!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for my life and for my breath. Thank you for being near to me. And thank you for the scripture to use for the last day of prayers based on things Jesus said!

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. (Mark 10:27)

Yep… it is me again, Lord. I’m here as usual to sit with you and to lift up your daughter Lindsey to you. I ask that you be with her today. I ask that you remind her that all things are possible for you, so she need not worry. I ask that you let her know it is you reminding her of this truth. Even more … I ask that you do something for her this week that only you can do… I ask that you do something that Lindsey can see with her own eyes that she KNOWS could only have been done by her God! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Don’t be afraid! Just believe!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the new day. Thank you for joy that is evident in your creation. Thank you for cheerful birds singing in the morning. Thank you for the rising sun to welcome the day. And thank you for the scripture as the base for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. (Mark 5:35-36)

Lord, I’m here again. I’ve come to sit with you again today. I am ready to begin today’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, do not be afraid. Do not fear. Just believe in Jesus. What a very simple foundation for daily life. Simple, yes. Easy, no. It is not easy to keep clear of fear. And so today I pray that the Lord would be with you to increase your courage and let you be brave at heart. I pray that he would reduce any fear that may appear before your eyes. I pray that he would replace fear with courage. And I pray that you would strive each day to only believe. Only believe in Jesus. And all the glory is his. All the glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Give from your abundance?

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for healing my knees instantly 15 years ago. Thank you for keeping them healed all these many years. Thank you for letting this miracle be my foundation of thankfulness, where I try to thank you for healing my knees any time that I am going up or down stairs. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.  And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living. (Mark 12:42-44)

Lord, here I am again. I’m here as usual on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, I am here and am praying for you. And today’s scripture is a hard one. We know that God delights in blessing each of us as we follow him and his ways. We know that he wants us to prosper. But at the same time, here we see Jesus taking note of someone who was giving all that she had and Jesus was honoring her before those he was speaking to. I don’t think giving everything is what Jesus is asking of us, or of you.  But I think he is asking us to pay attention and to make sure that giving is a normal part of our daily lives. And so, Lindsey, I pray that you would continue looking for ways that you can bless those around you by giving of yourself, your time and even your resources. I pray that God would open opportunities for you and that he would clearly point them out to you. I pray that God would continue to be generous to you as you are generous to those around you. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

See who you can serve today!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for sleep. Thank you how sleeping can refresh not only our minds but also our bodies. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. (Mark 9:35)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here as usual to lift up Lindsey to you. Yes, I lift you up Lindsey. As you tour the world, there are many travelling with you to serve you by setting up, tearing down, and all the many things that need to be done before, during and after each performance. And so today’s scripture is important. It reminds me of how to pray for you now. I pray that during your tours that you would always find ways to serve those who are there for you. I ask the Lord to show you opportunities to serve them. I ask that God would renew your strength and your mind so you can be able to be a good servant to those around you, just like you likely are already. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(S) Salome – faithful through thick and thin

Lindsey, the woman in the Bible for the letter S is Salome. Her two sons got the nickname “sons of thunder” – Jesus himself called them that! She followed Jesus and ministered and supported him right up to his crucifixion. Even when others deserted or even betrayed Jesus, Salome stuck with Jesus!

Heavenly Father. Good morning. Thank you for the godly people you have surrounded me with. Thank you for these good role models I have around me. And thank you for the story of Salome who raised up her sons of thunder while supporting and ministering to your son Jesus!

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;) (Mark 15:40-41)

and

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. (Mark 16:1-2)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here to pray for your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that you would be like Salome. I pray that you would raise up some sons of thunder around you. I pray that God would boost your faithfulness and replace doubts with truth. When others desert Jesus, may you stick close to him. When others say Jesus is dead, may you know that he is alive. When others say Jesus rose again, may you think to yourself, “yeah, I knew that!”.  And we will give all the glory to him. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

(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…)

(F) Female Disciples (MANY Good Role Models)

Lindsey, you too are a disciple of Jesus, as you have acknowledged him publicly. I pray that you would stay true to him regardless of circumstances that you may not fully understand, just as his female disciples followed him to the cross, to the empty tomb and beyond. I pray that God would grant you great insight and discernment through all the days of your journey.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome another day. Another day with you. A day anew … anew with you! Thank you for sleep which lets my mind and body relax and rest. Thank you for waking me in the morning and presenting me with another day filled with your glory and beauty. And thank you for the scripture to use for the letter F, for Female Disciples:

And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance. (Luke 8:1-3)

Lord, here I am to pray for your daughter Lindsey. She is one of your female disciples today and so the scriptures for today are very applicable. Lindsey, I pray that you would continue to be a disciple of Jesus. I pray that the women in scriptures would be role models for you. They followed Jesus all the way to the cross and then even to the empty tomb! They ministered to him and supported him. I pray that you too would follow Jesus to the cross and the resurrection and that you too would be a role model for the young women today. 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

(B) Bleeding Woman – Touched Jesus, Healed by her Faith

Lindsey, may you have faith like the bleeding woman and may you be healed and made whole!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the new day. Thank you that each day we can start anew. Thank you for my breath, my life, my health. And thank you for the scripture to use as I pray through women in the Bible from A to Z, the scripture regarding the bleeding woman:

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. (Matthew 9:20-22)

Lord, it’s me again. I’m here to pray for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that you would have the same faith that the bleeding woman had. I pray that whenever you are in need of healing, that you would ask the Lord to come and touch you, just as the bleeding woman had touched Jesus on that day almost 2,000 years ago. I pray that you would be able to hear Jesus say to you, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
