Can we go with you Lindsey?

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for being my protector and my provider. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey as it is one of my favorite passages:

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. (Zechariah 8:23)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin a prayer for your daughter who loves you. Today I see a choice before you Lindsey (and perhaps this not an either or choice but a both and). People want to see you. They want to hear you. They want to talk with you and pay extra money to do so. But consider why! Are they saying they want to go with you because you are such a fantastic inspiring dancing violinist? Or are they saying that they heard that God is with you, so they would like to be with you too! I pray that more and more people will be seeing that God is with you even more than seeing your great talent performing on stage and in videos. I pray that you would continue to not shy away from letting people know that God is with you and that all your talents are his gifts to you. I pray that God would reveal more of himself to you each day so that others watching you would see that God is part of you life … and say to themselves, “I’m not sure how God is with Lindsey so much, but I want it too! I hope she tells us how!” And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

May your times of fasting bring you great joy and gladness

Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome a new day with you. I share your view that it is good. Thank you for all the aspects of your creation that work together so well. And thank you for the scripture to use for a prayer for Lindsey today:

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. (Zechariah 8:19)

Lord, it’s me. I am here to begin a new prayer for your daughter Lindsey based on an interesting scripture. Lindsey, notice how times of fasting are referred to as times of joy and gladness and as cheerful feasts! When you notice this, perhaps you also can conclude that it is good to love the truth and peace! Lord, I ask that you give Lindsey opportunities to fast and that doing so will bring her great joy. I also ask that you reveal your truth to Lindsey even more now than before and that you help her walk in peace. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

All the disciples scattered when Jesus was arrested… will you?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for showing so clearly how Jesus himself confirmed that prior scriptures were not be replaced by him, but rather that he was encompassing them. The old and the new are interconnected. Today’s two scriptures show this quite well:

And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. (Mark 14:27)

Yes, it was written in Zechariah:

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. (Zechariah 13:7)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I pray that you will make yourself known to her. Lindsey, today’s scripture refers to all the disciples scattering when Jesus was arrested. Even Peter, who was so very confident that he would stand by Jesus no matter what. If we wonder what we would have done, we have the advantage of knowing the end of the story. We know that Jesus rose from the dead victoriously, so we need not worry nor be afraid nor scatter. So, that is my prayer for you Lindsey. I pray that you would know Jesus so well, that even when things look bad, you will still cling to him… actually, especially when things look bad! I pray that the Lord would grant you the courage to stick with him wherever you go. And we will give the glory to him. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
