(Z) Be Zealous for Good Works

Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us light in the darkness. Thank you for being a God of order and not of chaos or confusion. Thank you for your compassion and care. And thank you for the scripture for the prayer for the letter Z:

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (Titus 2:14)

Lord, what a wonderful way to end another set of 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey… with a prayer about being zealous for good works! Lord, this is a big prayer … I see so much energy and good just bubbling over in your daughter. I pray that you would use this energy to be zealous for good works. Open many doors for her joyful zeal to do good. Open her eyes and her heart to good works that you set before her. Give her the courage to go through those doors and give her the words when she needs them. And we will give all the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen (more…)

(Y) Yield Yourself Unto God

Heavenly Father, thank you for prayers – prayers meaning the people who are praying, the pray-ers. Thank you for hearing their prayers… and mine. Thank you for this wonderful miracle of prayer. And thank you for the scripture to use in my prayer for your daughter this day referencing the letter Y:

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. (Romans 6:13)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. May I pray for her and rest at the same time please? Help me with the prayer this day Lord. It appears that she has publicly yielded herself unto you God, so I ask that you provide her ways to be an instrument of righteousness. Open the doors for this for her Lord. Let all those who see her notice that she is an instrument of righteousness. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen (more…)

(X) EXcel in Edifying and Building Up the Church

Heavenly Father, thank you for indoor plants that keep our air fresh and oxygenated. Thank you for the beauty of indoor plants and flowers. Thank you for the many different colors of flower. Thank you for valuing variety! And thank you for the scripture that I can use for the letter X based on the syllable pronounced like “x”:

Even so ye, for as much as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. (1 Corinthians 14:12)

Lord, I need to sit with you today. I need your help myself and ask that you clarify things around me. I ask for more understanding and wisdom Lord. And of course I also am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. She is zealous Lord. She is extremely zealous and so I ask that you find ways that she may excel in edifying and building up your church. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(W) Walk (and Dance) in the Light

Today’s prayer seems to be an extra special one … a tiny group of us meets every weekday at a coffeeshop or at Wendy’s from 7-8am to read scriptures aloud around our table … and now and then we pause to share thoughts that we have regarding the scriptures. And today one of the people mentioned dancing to the Lord or dancing for the Lord … and I had to say … wow, that is part of my prayer I was just typing before we started our reading!  And so I need to expand this prayer a bit and add a second scripture to it referencing how king David danced before the Lord!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank  you for a wonderful morning feeling fully refreshed. Thank you for the many things that I can eat and drink, the vast amount, all different. Thank you for showing us that unique can be good! Thank you for being my guide and lighting the path for me to walk… and for the scripture for the letter W for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)

Lord, today it is even more a joy to be here with you than usual. The scripture for today’s prayer is so very applicable to your daughter you love … for she strives to walk in the light not only in her private life but also in public. But today I pray that you would show her how she also can dance in the light. Lord, I ask you to find ways for her to make dancing in the light part of her. Show her the way to do this Lord. Perhaps King David can be an example for her (see the ESV translation to help understand the Old English):

And it was told king David, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness. And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart. And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house. Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! And David said unto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Lord. And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour. Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death. (2 Samuel 6:12-22)

So let there be a celebration, let there be a party, let there be a dancing party. Lord, I ask that you sit with your daughter, that you walk with your daughter, that you DANCE and PLAY with your daughter in front of many crowds of people. Let the dance and the music be to you Lord. Let others know that we can celebrate with all our might before the Lord. Some of those around your daughter may not approve of this, however, but we know that you, Lord, DO approve, and so I pray that you will give your daughter the courage and strength to dance and play before you regardless of what others might say. And we will give all the glory to you. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(V) You Are Valued

Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome a new day with you. I welcome a day anew, where I start fresh with you for this day. Thank you for bringing me understanding to your word. Thank you for the people around me who advise and guide me in a godly way. Thank you Lord. And thank you for reminding me of my value and providing a scripture to use for the letter V for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31)

Lord, I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey. Today I ask that you find ways to show her first hand that she is indeed valuable. Let her see how valuable she is for you and your kingdom right where she is. 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…)

(U) You are Upheld and Restored with the Joy of Your Salvation

Heavenly Father, good day! Thank you for another day! It’s cold (below zero), but never-the-less it is a good day to spend with you. Thank you for being with me every day. And thank you for the scripture to base my prayer today for your daughter Lindsey for the letter U:

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. (Psalm 51:12)

Lord, I’m here again. Coming to sit with you to lift up your daughter each day is important. Praying for her helps lift my spirits as well. And today I pray that you uphold your daughter with your generous, willing and free spirit. Let her actually feel upheld! And I also ask that you restore to Lindsey the JOY of her salvation. Fill her with you joy Lord. Let her be so full of joy that others can see it in her eyes, in her words and in her walk. And we will give you all the glory. The glory is yours! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(T) You are Thoroughly Equipped and Furnished for All Good Works

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for creating me with 5 senses – sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing. Thank you for creating a world where I can encounter things with combined senses – that I can see something AND smell it at the same time! Thank you for how this makes life so interesting. And thank you for the scripture for the letter T:

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Lord, I’m back again. A bit tired, but that won’t keep me away from sitting with you. Help me with my prayer today as you promised you would when we needed it. Today I am asking you to show Lindsey how you have thoroughly equipped her for every good work that you set before her. You do not ask her to do something without first thoroughly equipping her for it. I ask that you allow her to see this first hand for herself today. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(S) You are Strengthened Within by the Spirit

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for all that is unique. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness. Thank you for the many many kinds of birds, of dogs, of trees. Thank you for making each one of us in your image but unique at the very same time. Thank you for all that you have instilled into your daughter Lindsey and the scripture for the letter S that speaks about her:

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; (Ephesians 3:16)

Lord, I am so happy to have you at my side every minute of the day. I am pleased that you are here when I come to sit with you. And now I lift up your daughter you love. I ask you to strengthen her with might by your spirit in her inner man, her inner being. I ask that she can feel your strength within her. I ask that she can know that you have filled her with might by your Spirit. I ask for big things today. I ask knowing that you hear me and that you do answer our prayers. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is to you. Amen (more…)

(R) You are Redeemed, Rescued and Renewed

Heavenly Father, today I look up and give you praise for this wonderful world and for sending your son Jesus to suffer and die for sins that we committed. Thank you for rescuing and redeeming us and for renewing us each day. And thank you for the scripture for the letter R:

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:2-5)

Yep, it’s me. Lord. I’m here. I couldn’t wait for another time with you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. You have rescued and redeemed her Lord. You have renewed her youth. And today I ask that you let her feel like one who has been rescued, one who has been redeemed. I ask that she feel the youth in her being renewed by you Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(Q) You are Qualified

(See other translations to help with old English “which hath made us meet”)

Heavenly Father, thank you for the warm room in the midst of 30 below zero wind chill temperatures. Thank you for watching over me all these years and I ask that you would watch over all the others during the very cold temperatures. Thank you for being my instructor and my guide. And thank you for such a good scripture for the letter Q:

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet* to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: (Colossians 1:12)

Lord, I am here again. Here to sit with you and to remember your daughter you love, to recall Lindsey. You have made her qualified for every task that you set before her. I ask that you give her confidence and let her feel fully qualified for everything she sets out to accomplish. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

* “hath made us meet” = “has qualified us”
