(Z) God is Zealous

Good Morning Heavenly Father! What a wonderful day, for today I use the letter Z for my daily prayer for your daughter Lindsey … and it is the end of the first 40 days of prayers for her! Thank you for providing a scripture for me to use each of those 40 days. Thank you for giving me words for the prayers. Thank you for helping me each day as I come before you to lift up your daughter you love so much.  And thank you for the scripture for day number 40:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Lord, it is me again … and if you are asking who will go and pray for your daughter Lindsey, I say “I will”.  And when you ask where are you, I say “Here I am!” And for this day, I enjoy praying about your zeal, for Lindsey also is zealous for the good! She takes up each project that you set before her, and WITH YOU she knows she can do it, so she puts her whole heart into it. She is zealous to perform the projects you set before her. And so I ask today that you would help her to keep her zeal aimed only for the good. Peter wrote about this:

Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ESV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 ASV)

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? (1 Peter 3:13 KJV) (interlinear of Hebrew/English)

So, Lord, I ask that you help Lindsey stay zealous. Yes, help her to stay zealous for what is good! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(Y) Jesus’s Yoke is Easy and his Burden is Light

Heavenly Father, I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for the majestic sunrise. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness in that each sunrise can be different, some pink, some orange, some with wisps of clouds, others with a mist or a fog. Different from an island or from the bottom of a mountain. Different from within a dense forest or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Different in summer and in winter.  Even near nonexistent near the north or south pole! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today that reminds us that Jesus promised that his yoke was easy:

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)

Lord, what an exciting time. Tomorrow I finish my first 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey with a prayer based on the letter Z. Today I am happy to pray for Lindsey, that you would remind her that your yoke is easy. It is not something to be avoided at all costs. Remind her that your burden is light – it is not a heavy burden.  Let her see this with her own eyes and her own heart today. I ask that today she would find your yoke extremely easy and your burden very light. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(X) God is EXcellent and EXalted

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for warmth! I thank you for providing me with a home and with heat in the winter.  And thank you for the scripture for X reminding us that you alone are EXcellent!

Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven. (Psalm 148:13)

Lord, how wonderful it is to come here before you again this morning on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. She enjoys praising your name, for your name is excellent! Today I ask that you let her see a bit more of your glory that is above the earth. Be her provider today and provide her with an extra bit of time that she can look up above the earth and then open her eyes to see a bit of your glory. And we will praise you Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(W) God is Wondrous

Heavenly Father, thank you for my heartbeat. Lying down on my left side on my bed, I was able to “hear” my own heartbeat. Thank you for the heart in me that keeps beating consistently so that I can in turn say thank you for my life! How wonderful you are in creating me with a continually beating heart. And thank you for the scripture for today for the letter W to remind us that you are wondrous!

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things. (Psalm 72:18)

Lord, good morning. I anxiously come to sit with you today. In the midst of everything going on around me I know that I can come sit with you anytime. So, here I am to lift up your daughter Lindsey. I ask that you let her see your wonder today, even more than she usually does. Arrange for her to see something from you that is totally wondrous, completely wonderful! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(V) Jesus is the Vine

Heavenly Father, thank you for light. It just occurred to me that without light, our eyes would see nothing. The beauty of the trees, of flowers, of flying birds would all go unnoticed if there were no light. Thank you for light! And thank you for revealing to us with the letter V that Jesus is the vine, we are the branches and without him, we can do nothing!

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (John 15:5)

Lord, it is so fantastic living in this world with you. Living life without you is almost incomprehensible to me at times. And so it is with great joy that I am here with you again, as I am each day. I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey, and to ask that you continue to be the strong vine for her. She is abiding in you, and so I ask that you let her bear much fruit. She knows that she can do nothing without you, and so this day she sets out to see what she can do WITH you!  Lord, I ask that you continue to show her the way to go. I ask that you continue to surround her with godly men and women. And I ask that you let her see the amazing fruit that she has been producing – fruit that she never would have dreamed about ten years ago. And I further ask that as she continues to walk with you and to work with you that her fruit will continue to be overflowing. And we will give you all the credit Lord. All the credit and all the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, the vine that we abide in. Amen. (more…)

(U) God Upholds You

Good Morning Heavenly Father. The bare trees against the snow outside look wonderful. Thank you for all the many many bits of beauty you spread all over this world, this universe! Thank you for letting me see just a tiny part of it. And thank you for the scripture for the letter U to remind us that you uphold us as we cling to you!

My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. (Psalm 63:8)

Lord, I start today anew. I start today fresh with you, invigorated and ready for the day. And now I come before you to lift up Lindsey, your delightful daughter. You have so many plans for her. She has seen the many plans in the past come to fruition with extraordinary results. She trusts in you Lord. So, I ask that today you would remind her that you are there with her, next to her, right at her side. You will be there all day watching over her and upholding her. Remind her to simply cling to you this day, to merely follow hard after you.  Remind her that you are there every step of the way. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(T) Jesus is the Truth

Heavenly Father, thank you for keeping me safe and secure. Thank you for reminding me of the truth when presented by lies of the world. Thank you for blessing me with discernment to know when something spoken is truth or a lie. And thank you for the scripture for my prayer referencing the letter T as I pray again for your daughter Lindsey:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Lord, here I am again, as usual, ready to pray for your daughter Lindsey who loves you so much. I ask that you increase her discernment today. That you make it easier for her to distinguish between what is truth and what is NOT! Open her eyes to the truth, open her mind to the truth, open her heart to your truth. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, the way, the truth and the life. Amen. (more…)

(S) God is my Strength, my Song, my Salvation

Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome the new day with you. As always, I can start this day anew, start it fresh, with no worry about where I was yesterday. Thank you for the sun that rises each day. Thank you for the moon and the stars at night. Thank you for the world you created! I praise you… I exalt you!  And I thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer:

The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. (Exodus 15:2)

Lord, yes, it is me. I am here  to pray for Lindsey, the daughter you love.   You are her strength and her song. I pray that today you remind her that you are her salvation.  Fill her with even more strength directly from you. Lord, be a sweet song for her today. Be the melody and give her the harmony. Let the room around her reverberate with your joyous music. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(R) God Rejoices

Heavenly Father – Yay! From Q for quiet to R for rejoicing. Thank you for revealing bits of yourself to us in your Word! It seems Paul understood this when writing to the Philippians when he told them to rejoice always. We should rejoice because you rejoice! Thank you for giving us so many ways to rejoice. With singing, with dance, with laughter. Thank you for the scripture to use in my prayer this day:

The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

Lord, I come here before you with joy and with singing.  I come here to joyfully lift up your daughter you love, to lift up Lindsey, your daughter as you sing joyfully over her. And I pray that she, in turn, will rejoice with you today. Let her rest in your love as you calm all her fears.  You are mighty, Lord, but you are singing and rejoicing as well.  Let Lindsey feel your delight in her today. Let her be inspired by your joy and your singing.  Rather than put this inspiration into words, let her put it to music. Let her music resound through the room and into the heavens. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

(Q) God is Quiet, Silent and Calm

Heavenly Father. Thank you for vision. For the wonder of my eyes. For the millions of shades colors I can see. For depth perception. Thank you for peripheral vision. Thank you for allowing me to read. And especially, thank you for your gift of scriptures that I love to read … and today for letter Q I can see how you can be quiet at times too:

So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. (Ezekiel 16:42)

Lord, I have been encouraged by godly people you have surrounded me with. I am encouraged that in the midst of your wrath against your own people in Jerusalem, you reminded them that you also can be quiet, silent, calm.  And today I am here as usual to pray for your daughter Lindsey. I pray that you will allow her to find you today. That she can find you resting and not angry. That you will calmly sit with her when she needs you. I pray that today you provide extra time of rest for her. I pray that you calm her fears, calm her anxiety, calm her nerves. And we will give you all the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
