The Lord Is Doing Great Things. Do You See Them?
Heavenly Father. What an amazing universe you created just for us! You could have splashed a few hundred (or even a few thousand) stars around the heavens for us to see at night – but you are bigger than that and far more extravagant! So you filled the heavens with billions of stars – likely more that we cannot see than that we can see! What a glorious gift for our nights! Thank you for showing us your glory in this way! And thank you for your daughter Lindsey and the scriptures you gave me for this prayer for her this day:
Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things (Joel 2:21)
and one of my favorite passages that says “See what God has done!”
according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! (Numbers 23:23b)
Lord, it is me again. I have come before you on behalf of Lindsey every day for a year now, and today my prayer for your daughter you love ends with scriptures that reminds us that you will do great things for her. We are reminded that you already have done great things for her. And so, Lindsey, I close one year of prayers with that reminder. I pray that each and every day you would always remember some of the great things that God has done for you. And I pray that each day you also would expect even more. God is a gracious and generous God, so be glad and rejoice, for he will continue to do great things for you. Why? Because he loves you! After all, you ARE his daughter! And so we now give all the glory to God. The glory is all to him. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
May God pour out his spirit on you, deliver you and show you great things
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for coffee. Thank you for those who grow it, harvest it and prepare it. Thank you for the coffee shop that serves it each morning. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[this is Peter speaking]
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Acts 2:16-21)
Yes indeed, Joel did say this:
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. (Joel 2:28-32)
Lord, it’s me. I’m ready to begin another prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture is very interesting. We see how Peter, a hard working lifelong fisherman, knows his scriptures. He was able to quote quite a bit of the prophecy made by Joel on the spur of the moment. And I would like to pray what he said over you this morning Lindsey. I pray that as a daughter of God that you too would prophesy as God pours out his spirit on you. I pray that as you call on the name of the Lord that he would deliver you and you would be saved. And we will both give all the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Blessing: May You be Satisfied, Praise God and Never be Ashamed
I pray this blessing over you, Lindsey. May you be satisfied. May you praise the Lord and never be ashamed.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. As I walked to the bus stop this morning the wind was bitingly cold on my eyes, reminding me to take good care of this body that you gave me. Thank you for healing my knees so I can walk so well again. Thank you for restoring my feet. Thank you for refreshing my hips. Thank you for allowing me to walk around in the midst of the world you created. And thank you for the blessing for Lindsey direct from your scriptures:
And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. (Joel 2:26)
Lord, I am here this day to bless your daughter you love. I am here to bless the daughter who loves you above all. And so I say, Lindsey, I pray that you may be satisfied and that you would have all you need to eat where ever you may be. And I especially pray that you may praise the Lord and never ever be ashamed for that. I pray this blessing over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings, to whom we give all the glory. Amen (more…)
