Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for speaking to me during my bus rides downtown. The bus windows were completely fogged/misted over from the inside of the bus being air conditioned and outside warm and humid. It is interesting how water can just appear on windows illustrating how water is indeed part of the air we breathe. Thank you for the many ways water appears before us, as liquid, gas or solid, rain, snow, sleet, hail, steam, mist and dew. And thank you for the scripture for this morning’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judæa: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. (Matthew 2:1-6)
Micah was that prophet:
2 But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2)
Lord, it’s me again. I am here. I was anxious to be here this morning as I look forward to sitting with you. Now I would like to speak on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Just as with the wise men, she has seen the announcement of Jesus’s coming and looks forward to worshiping him, as do I. Today’s scripture also reminds us how his coming was not with a royal celebration in the capital city, but rather in a tiny town that scriptures refer to as “least”. Such humble beginning for the Savior, the Lord, the King. Lord, I ask that you help us both to remember this and to strive to remain humble in all circumstances, giving all the glory to you. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome the new day and thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for providing for me and my family. Thank you for always being with me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer that reminds us how compassionate you are towards us:
He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. (Micah 7:19)
Lord, I am here before you again to continue my prayers for your daughter who loves you so much. We are so grateful that you have cast our sins into the depths! Thank you for having compassion on Lindsey and I pray that she could witness this with her own eyes this day. And we will give you all the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, Lord of lords. Amen (more…)
It’s a wonderful new day Lord. Thank you for waking me up this morning to see what you have for me today. Thank you for always protecting and providing for me; thank you for being my guide today as you always are. Show me the way you would have me go, let me see it clearly, and then give me the courage to actually walk it! And I will walk it, with this printed prayer in my pocket :) Yes, this is my prayer for today for your attentive daughter:
Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. (Micah 7:7)
Here I am Lord … standing before you on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter! It is with great joy that I draw your attention to her. She patiently watches for you Lord. She confidently waits for you. And she knows in her head and in her heart that you will indeed hear her. Listen to her prayers this day Lord. As she looks to you, let her see your answer. As she waits, let her hear your reply. I ask that today be a special day where you make it very clear to her that you have heard her prayers. And we both will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. All the glory is to you. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
