Your reverent respect for God is a key to the fun of skipping and dancing about

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the beautiful day, the wonderful morning. Thank you for the gentle breeze, the crisp fresh air. Thank you for sunshine and for letting me see bits of your beauty and glory this morning. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. (Malachi 4:2)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin a prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I get to pray another of my favorite scriptures over you as you do have a reverent respect for God, you do have a healthy fear of the Lord and you do strive to obey what he asks of you. Thus his saving power will rise on you bringing you healing. But the fun part is how this scripture refers to you! You shall be like leaping, jumping, skipping happy calves let out of the stall. Let this scripture be confirmation to you that it is not only OK to skip and dance around … it is actually biblical :) And together let’s give God the glory. The glory is all his! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Eagerly look for Jesus. Delight and celebrate his presence with you!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for walking. Thank you for legs that walk so well. Thank you for the magnificent view as I walk outside. Thank you for walking with me … it is a delight I eagerly look forward to each day. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. (Luke 7:27)

Yes, it is written in Malachi:

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:1)

Lord, I am here again. I am eager to begin the new prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you would eagerly look for Jesus and that you would delight and celebrate his presence with you. I pray that the Lord would come to meet you each time you diligently look for him, regardless of where you are. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: Skip About, Frolic and Leap for Joy

Lindsey, today I bless you with youthful joy, with joyful youth. May you playfully frolic and skip about, leaping with joy, for the Lord is right there with you, delighting in you!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for my beating heart and my working mind. Thank you for healing my knees and watching over me all these years. And thank you for the scripture that provides the blessing for your daughter today (plus see note at the bottom):

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. (Malachi 4:2)

Lord, it is a joy to be here, to be sitting with you, to be talking with you. And this morning I offer a blessing over your daughter you love. Lindsey, I am not a farmer, so I am not familiar with how calves behave, so I tried to clarify this using multiple translations. And so this day, as I bless you, I pray that you will grow up as calves of the stall, that you would go out LEAPING, that you would go out and PLAYFULLY JUMP, that you would go forth and SKIP ABOUT, that you would go out and FROLIC, that you would go free, LEAPING WITH JOY, that you would go out SPRINGING from your stall. Yes … I pray all this over you this day. Go forth leaping, playfully jumping, skipping about, frolicking, leaping with joy and springing from your room. And we will give all the glory to the Lord. All glory to you Lord. I pray this over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NOTE: How very interesting that the day after the day of this prayer, as we sat around a table in a coffee shop reading scriptures aloud between ourselves, that another scripture also referenced a calf skipping. Plus a person in our tiny group mentioned that just a couple years ago she was helping/working at a petting farm which had a baby calf and that it really did skip and jump and leap around! (until it got tired and laid down to nap). Here is the scripture we read the next day:

The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. (Psalm 29:6)
