God Made You, Redeemed You, Called You and Saved You
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)
Do not be dismayed or discouraged for God will strengthen and help you
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for birds. Thank you for the wide variety of birds. Thank you for letting us see how they can fly together, even at times in a formation. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10)
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:13)
Lord, I am here again. I am here on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, if the God of the universe is holding your right hand, what need you be afraid of? If the all powerful God says he will help and uphold you, need you be dismayed? If your zealous compassionate God is strengthening you, need you be discouraged? No, these are not trick questions! Rather they are asking you to remember God’s promises to you. Lord, I ask that you find ways to show Lindsey first hand how you will hold her right hand. I ask that you reveal a bit of your mighty strength to her so that she can KNOW that she need not be afraid. Lord I ask that you place people in her path that can remind of these things. People who will encourage her. Lindsey, you are the daughter of the King – he will not abandon you. He never forgets you. He is with you right now and every moment of your life. And so we gladly give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to God. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Do Justice. Do what is right and good. Be Blessed!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for holding everything together for this day. Thank you for all the small miracles that are there before us that we just take for granted. And thank you for the scripture to use for your daughter Lindsey this day:
Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. (Isaiah 56:1-2)
Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. I ask that you come near to her. I ask that you reveal your righteousness to her. And Lindsey, be careful, today and every day. Be careful to do these things. Do justice. Be just and fair to everyone. Do what is right and good. And then the joy kicks in because God says you then are blessed. Blessed! Don’t take being blessed lightly. Perhaps being blessed may mean that God is opening a window of favor for you. Perhaps being blessed for you may mean having people around you who build up your faith and help you to not stray from God. Perhaps being blessed is being part of a family who supports and encourages you. I ask that God bless you in just the right way! And we will give him the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Each week take a day to rest and honor God as you delight yourself in the Lord
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the food I eat. Thank you for what I have to drink. Thank you for sustaining me with your word and with provisions – both! And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 58:13-14)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lord, today I pray a big prayer for her. She is in the spotlight. Wherever she goes her fans adore her and elevate her. In the midst of this unending praise of her ability and talent she may often feel that she can do whatever she pleases. Lindsey, today’s scripture reminds you to refrain from selfish pursuits. Isaiah was asking the people to remember the sabbath the way that God told them to! Centuries later, Jesus took this even further when he told us that the sabbath was made for us!
And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: (Mark 2:27)
And so, Lindsey, I pray that you always will be able to take a day of rest. That rest was designed for you. Rest in the Lord. And may this time of rest invigorate you and restore your energy. May you find JOY in your relationship with the Lord and may he grant you great prosperity. May you delight yourself in the Lord and honor him above all things. And together we can glory God. Let us give the glory to him. I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
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:
4 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…)
Joyful in Prayer! Rejoice while Praying!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for watching over me while I sleep since you never sleep nor slumber. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. (Mark 11:17)
It is written in the book of Isaiah:
7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (Isaiah 56:7)
Lord, it’s me. I’m happy to sit with you. Praying is a joy… I rejoice as I pray for your daughter you love, just as you rejoice as you watch over her. Lindsey, today I pray for your prayers. I pray that your times of prayer are joyful. I pray that you rejoice to be talking with God while you pray. I pray that you look forward to your times of prayer and that God would often let you feel his presence around you as you pray. And together we give the glory to him. All the glory is to God. I pray this joyfully in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
What must you DO?
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for letting me see the many ways that we can help those around us, especially those who are critically ill. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. (Luke 3:4-6)
And we find that Isaiah did say this:
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
5 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 40:3-5)
But what is interesting is that in the very next sentences Luke tells of how John the Baptist warned the people who came out to him! He did not mince words but came right out and told them that they could not just sit back and do nothing claiming to be a son or daughter of God! They had to DO things too! Their ACTIONS had to confirm their BELIEF!
8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. (Luke 3:8)
And so the people ask him … well, just what ARE we supposed to do? And it was interesting that his answer varied depending upon who they were and what they did for their living!
10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. (Luke 3:10-14)
Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Lord, I think that she may be asking you the same thing all these people were asking of John the Baptist! She may be saying, “Yes, I am a daughter of God … so what must I DO?” Lord, I pray that you answer her. I pray that you speak clearly to her, just as clearly as John the Baptist did! He told the Tax Collectors to only collect the correct amount of tax and nothing more (nothing extra for themselves). He told the Soldiers that they must do something different than that. The soldiers were to be content with their wages – and to not extort money nor accuse people falsely. Lord, Lindsey is not a soldier. She is not a tax collector. She is one of the crowd though … and so it seems that one thing she might do is to give clothes and food to those who need them. But what else specifically for a talented touring musician? Lord, I pray for you to sit with Lindsey and to let her know the answer to this very important question “What must I DO?” I pray that you let her know it is you speaking to her. I pray that you take her aside every now and then to remind of of the things you are asking her to DO. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Jesus is the light within you. Let it shine brightly everywhere you go!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for good friends. Thank you for the friends who are there with us year after year. And thank you as well for friends who are with us for just a season. Thank you for reminding us that it is Christ that is the light in us, and when others see a light in us, we can tell them the source is Jesus!
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (Ephesians 5:13-14)
Yes, this was said in Isaiah:
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. (Isaiah 60:1)
Lord, it’s me. Yep, I am here again as usual to lift Lindsey up to you. I am here on her behalf. Lord, I pray that you would be the light in Lindsey. Wake her up whenever busy-ness clouds her day. And then let your light shine through her Lord so that it is evident to those around her, let it be so evident that many ask her about it! Give her these opportunities to tell people that she is not the light, but that Jesus is the light within her. I ask that you give her the words then Lord. Show her the way and give her the strength and courage to walk it (with you right beside her the whole time!) And we will give the glory to you. The glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Don’t Panic! Just rely, trust and believe in Jesus!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Good morning and Happy Day! I welcome this new day, anew with you. I rejoice in this day praising you. Yes, good morning, happy day and thank you for your precious Word which reminds us how we too are precious as we believe in Jesus who is the precious cornerstone of our life that Peter refers to, as Isaiah foretold about him:
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (1 Peter 2:4-6)
Consider this scripture from Isaiah:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Isaiah 28:16)
Lord, it’s me! I’m here! I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I was happy to find out that the button that some people wear is Biblical. “Don’t Panic!” Yes, indeed, as you look around you Isaiah said it … don’t panic and rush around. Don’t panic and make haste! Keep Calm and Believe! Perhaps the button that people are wearing needs the word “Believe” added to it! Lindsey, you have already acknowledged Jesus publicly. I pray that you will cling to him today. I pray that you will believe in him, the precious cornerstone to your life. I pray that Jesus will always be precious to you. I pray that as you firmly believe in him, that he will give you confidence and not allow you to be put to shame. I pray that as you trust and rely on Jesus, that you would never feel the need to panic and would never be confounded! And we will give the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
May Your Heart Rejoice as You Walk to the Music!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for history. Thank you for how records are kept. Thank you for being there throughout history. Thank you for being with Isaiah as he wrote the scripture you gave me to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel. (Isaiah 30:29)
Lord, it’s me. I’m here… as always. I look forward to our time together. And now I am ready to lift up your daughter. Lord, I ask that you draw her to you. I ask that you lead her into your mountain. I ask that you let her know that you are there. Give her a song Lord. Put gladness into her heart. She is looking. She is searching. She is seeking you Lord. Let her find you. Let it be the new song you give to her. Let it be the gladness of heart in that song. Let that be her walk. Let her walk to your song Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
