Prosper and find success as you wholeheartedly strive for that which is good and right

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a beautiful fall day. Thank you for the crisp clean air. Thank you for the leaves on the trees as they change to yellows, oranges and reds. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God. And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered. (2 Chronicles 31:20-21)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, who loves you with all her heart, just as Hezekiah did. She strives to do that which is good and right in your sight Lord. So I ask that you continue to prosper her and make her successful as she goes on her journey, walking wherever you ask, throughout the world. And we will give you the glory. The glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Include joy and music with your sacrifices and offerings to God

Heavenly Father good morning! Thank you for holding all things together. Thank you for being in control, yet always having something for us as well. Thank you for showing us the way you would have us go and lighting the way before us. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter:

Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the Lord by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the Lord, to offer the burnt offerings of the Lord, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David. (2 Chronicles 23:18)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as usual on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves rejoicing in you. Lindsey, today we see how rejoicing and singing are in integral part of our sacrifices and offerings to God. I pray that you always find ways to make your sacrifice and offerings to God and that you can do it with joy and with music. Perhaps you will hear the angels singing along with your music. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Seek God with all your heart and your whole desire. Rejoice, be happy and take delight in it!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the sunshine. Thank you for the clouds. Thank you for the needed rain. Thank you for all the weather changes. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the Lord gave them rest round about. (2 Chronicles 15:15)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here as usual. I’m here on behalf of your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, this is a wonderful scripture to pray over you today because I know that you seek the lord with your whole desire, with all your heart. I pray that you will rejoice just as all Judah did. I pray that you will find delight in worshiping the Lord. I pray that you will find peace on every side around you. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all to him. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

GNT:
All the people of Judah were happy because they had made this covenant with all their heart. They took delight in worshiping the Lord, and he accepted them and gave them peace on every side.

Let your actions show that you believe God!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for family. And thank you for the three scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. (James 2:23)

It was the first book of the Bible (Genesis) which said it:

And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:6)

And then in 2 Chronicles it says Abraham was God’s friend:

Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? (2 Chronicles 20:7)

Lord, it’s me again. I would like to begin my next daily prayer for your daughter you love. Yes, Lindsey believes you Lord, so I ask that you count that as righteousness for her.  I ask that you call her your friend! However, Lindsey, be sure to read the 4 sentences that come before this statement in James! Be reminded that it is more than what you believe, more than mere faith … it is what you actually DO in addition to your faith and believing God. So, Lord, I ask that you give Lindsey many opportunities to put her faith into action. Give her many opportunities to actually DO things that align with her faith and what she hears you saying to her. Let her hear you clearly Lord. And give her the courage to actually do things that are not in her comfort zone! And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Welcome God to come – sing and play your instruments (and maintain a childlike enthusiasm!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the waves upon the beach. Thank you for the joy they bring to the children. Thank you for the excitement in their voices, in their eyes, in their jumping around. Thank you for reminding us that we are to be like little children if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven*. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey, who is very much like those energetic, enthusiastic children:

Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God. (2 Chronicles 5:12-14)

Lord, here I am again. I am here on behalf of Lindsey again today as usual. I ask that whenever she plays her violin and praises you Lord, that you would fill that place even if it is a concert hall or outdoor music festival! And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

*And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)

Enter the city with the sound of stringed instruments then proceed to the house of the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the small, the little, the tiny. The small drops of rain that combine into a puddle or even fill the streets. The little seed that ends up a huge bush or tree.  The tiny organisms seen only under a microscope. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 20:27-28)

Lord, I’m here again. It’s me! I am here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter you love.  Today I pray that Lindsey may be in the forefront with the leaders singing and playing and rejoicing.  Let them parade into the city and then enter your temple with songs of praise. And all the glory is yours Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(Q) Queen of Sheba – Travel Far; Ask Hard Questions; get Answers

Lindsey, today I pray that you will be willing and determined to travel great distances to get answers to your hard questions, just like the Queen of Sheba (who both Matthew and Luke considered more honorable that their current generation!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another beautiful day. Thank you for the green grass. Thank you for the flowering trees. Thank you for the example of Spring! And thank you for the honorable woman for the letter Q:

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. (Matthew 12:42)

She traveled far to ask Solomon hard questions and was breathless at how he could answer every single question she had:

And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great company, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.  And Solomon told her all her questions: and there was nothing hid from Solomon which he told her not. And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built, And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel; his cupbearers also, and their apparel; and his ascent by which he went up into the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her. (2 Chronicles 9:1-4)

Lord, I’m here again resting with you. And after a bit of rest, I begin today’s prayer for your daughter who loves you so much. I pray that you would answer all of Lindsey’s hard questions. I ask that you allow her to travel great distances to see the answers for herself. I pray that you would take her breath away. Let her be breathless when she sees the answers! And we will give you all the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(J) Jehoshabeath (Jehosheba) – Courage and Compassion

Lindsey, I have been waiting for the letter J to come up so that I could pray that you would have the same courage and compassion as Jehoshabeath had. She risked her own life while trying to save the life of Joash who was just one years old. I pray that you would be filled with this same courage and compassion and that you would not be afraid to act on it.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the beautiful flowers on the trees, which only last a few days. But you still created that beauty for us to see. Thank you for the way you display your glory all around us. And thank you for the story of Jehoshabeath, the woman of the Bible for the letter J:

But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of Judah. But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king’s sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not. And he was with them hid in the house of God six years: and Athaliah reigned over the land. (2 Chronicles 22:10-12)

Lord, I am here again. I enjoy sitting with you. I enjoy coming to pray for your daughter Lindsey who you love. Lindsey, today I pray a big prayer. This is a big prayer because it can mean that you will lay everything on the line. But it is worth it, so I pray that God would fill you with the same extreme courage and compassion that Jehoshabeath had. I pray that God would let you see when this courage and compassion is needed and that you would not be afraid to step out at that time. I pray that God would grant you more wisdom and discernment this day. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Jesus Christ, King of kings. Amen

Jehosheba / Jehoshabeath:

A Good Adviser

Heavenly Father – today I thank you for uniqueness! Yes, just looking around at your creation it seems obvious that you highly value uniqueness. When you created dogs, you didn’t create just one kind, but hundreds. When you created birds, you didn’t create just one kind, but thousands. More than ten thousand kinds of butterflies and more than a hundred thousand kinds of flowers! And though each person is created in your image, all the billions of people are each unique, with their own special gifts and talents and each is highly valued. Thank you for caring for us so much Lord. And thank you for the scripture from 2 Chronicles chapter 24 to use in my prayer for your talented daughter, Lindsey:

2 And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord all the days of Jehoiada the priest.

17-18 Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them. And they left the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.

Lord, today I pray a big prayer for the daughter you love. I pray that you surround her with good advisers. Scriptures show us how important a good adviser is. While Jehoida was advising Joash he did what was right in the sight of the Lord. But after Jehoida died, the king was persuaded to listen to his princes and left the Lord to worship idols instead. Lord, I pray that you would provide Lindsey with godly advisers. Give her great discernment to determine which advice to pay heed to. Lord, be their guide this day, this month, this coming year. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
