May God Grant You Discernment and Godly Wisdom

κόσμου (Strong #2889) transliteration: kosmos – order, the world (definition:  the world, universe; worldly affairs; the inhabitants of the world; adornment) [see online reference]

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. Thank you for ears to hear it. Thank you for those talented to compose it and for those gifted to be able to play it! And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. (1 Corinthians 3:19)

It is written in Job:

13 [Eliphaz is speaking] He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong. (Job 5:13)

Lord, it’s me again. I am enjoying my time sitting with you. It is wonderful knowing that I can come sit with you at any time, day or night.  And right now I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who loves you very much. Lindsey, I pray that God would give you discernment and godly wisdom. I pray that he would allow you to see what the world calls wisdom as foolish in his eyes. I pray that God would grant you wisdom beyond your years. I pray that God would give you opportunities to share with others the wisdom of God. I pray that he will let you see how the schemes and craftiness of the world are NOT the answer, nor to be desired. Lindsey, I pray that God will watch over you and surround you with godly people. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

(K) Kezia – Fairest in the Land

Lindsey, today I pray that like Kezia there would be an inheritance given to you. I pray that you would be the fairest in the land (remembering that there is no such thing as a magic mirror!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the night sky. Thank you for the heavens at night. Thank you for the moon which gradually changes it’s appearance over the course of a month. Thank you for the stars in the sky and for the constellations that can be made from them. Thank you for beauty in the heavens as well as in the land. And thank you for Job’s daughter Kezia, for the letter K as we go through Women in the Bible:

And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. (Job 42:14-15)

Lord,  I am here again. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey, the daughter who loves you! I’m here to begin another daily prayer for her. Lindsey, today’s prayer may be simple, but it is meaningful as well. For today I pray that there would be an inheritance for you, just as there was for Kezia. And I truly pray that you would be like Kezia and be called the fairest in the land. I pray that this would not be something prideful or arrogant, but that you would be fairest as well as gentle, meek and compassionate. I pray that these virtues would be granted to you in combination so that they blend together so that both in the eyes of God as well as the eyes of the world that it would be said no women could be found as fair as you. But we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Kezia:
