(D) Deborah – Prophetess, Patriot and Poet

Lindsey, may those around you see your godly strength and leadership, just like they looked up to Deborah. May they see the  wisdom and joy of the Lord in you and may you be a role model for the young women today.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the bright sunshine in the morning. Thank you for waking me this morning. Thank you for the godly people you surrounded me with in the morning. And thank you for the woman in the Bible for the letter D – Deborah:

And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Beth-el in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedesh-naphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the Lord God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun? And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand. And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go. And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the Lord shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh. (Judges 4:4-9)

Lord, I’m here again. I am ready to pray for Lindsey, your daughter, based on what scriptures say about Deborah. Lindsey, I pray that you would continue to find your strength in the Lord so that you may confidently stand before others and let your faith shine forth. I pray that the joy of the Lord would fill you and carry you on your walk. I pray that you can write a song just like Deborah wrote “The Song of Deborah”. And I pray that those around you would look to you for godly wisdom. And we will give all the glory to the Lord. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen

In those days everyone did whatever they thought was right

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my breath and the lungs that make it possible. Thank you for the fresh Spring air. And thank you for the two matching scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter:

In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Judges 17:6)

and

In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Judges 21:25)

Lord, I’m here again to sit with you. When things get a bit hectic it is nice to know that I can still have time to sit with you. Today seems like an interesting scripture for the prayer for your daughter Lindsey! Perhaps it tells of things to watch out for! So, Lindsey, I pray for you today that you would be able to discern when people are simply doing what seems right in their own eyes. I pray that you would recognize this and not follow in their footsteps, but instead would continue following the path that God sets before you, for you know that we are not supposed to do whatever we want, but should do what is right in God’s eyes. And we will give the glory to the Lord. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
