(Z) God is Zealous

Good Morning Heavenly Father! What a wonderful day, for today I use the letter Z for my daily prayer for your daughter Lindsey … and it is the end of the first 40 days of prayers for her! Thank you for providing a scripture for me to use each of those 40 days. Thank you for giving me words for the prayers. Thank you for helping me each day as I come before you to lift up your daughter you love so much.  And thank you for the scripture for day number 40:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Lord, it is me again … and if you are asking who will go and pray for your daughter Lindsey, I say “I will”.  And when you ask where are you, I say “Here I am!” And for this day, I enjoy praying about your zeal, for Lindsey also is zealous for the good! She takes up each project that you set before her, and WITH YOU she knows she can do it, so she puts her whole heart into it. She is zealous to perform the projects you set before her. And so I ask today that you would help her to keep her zeal aimed only for the good. Peter wrote about this:

Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ESV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ASV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 KJV) (interlinear of Hebrew/English)

So, Lord, I ask that you help Lindsey stay zealous. Yes, help her to stay zealous for what is good! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

Beauty in the Night Sky

Heavenly Father … this day I ponder the glory of the heavens, the majestic beauty of the night sky. When you created the stars, you did not create just enough that the sky looked pretty.  You did not stop with merely a couple hundred stars, nor a couple thousand stars. Even a million stars was not enough.  You created billions … and all this for us as part of your creation that we have before our very eyes. Thank you Lord. Thank you for caring for us so much that you would create such a vast universe for us to see – both with our eyes and with our telescopes. Thank you! And thank you for the scripture that goes with this for me to use in my prayer this day for your artistic daughter:

Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth (Isaiah 40:26)

Lord, I pray that you would grant Lindsey time one night this week to simply gaze up at the starry sky. Grant her time for this Lord. And while she lifts her eyes to the sky, let her see your majestic beauty unfold before her very eyes. Let it be her inspiration for the next day. Yes!  Lord, show Lindsey a bit of your glory as she lifts her eyes on high. And in turn, we will give you all the glory Lord. All the glory is indeed yours! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
