Blessing: Live Long and Prosper (including Spock YouTube clips)
Lindsey, the 40 consecutive days of blessings ends with one you should enjoy since it was made popular by the Spock greeting on Star Trek saying “Live long and prosper!” (see YouTube clips after the prayer). And so I bless you once more Lindsey. May you live long and prosper!
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day, another new day, another new day with you! Thank you for my breath and for my life. Thank you for being with me always. And thank you for these blessings from scripture that relate directly to today’s blessing for your daughter – from Ephesians, 3 John and Deuteronomy:
- Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. (Deuteronomy 4:40)
- Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. (Deuteronomy 5:16)
- Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. (Deuteronomy 5:33)
- Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2)
- Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. (Ephesians 6:2-3)
Lord, it’s me. I am here again to conclude 40 days of blessings prayed daily over your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you would live long and prosper. I pray that it may go well with you and that you would have good health. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
And background to the hand gesture (today’s blessing already covered the background to Star Trek’s Spock saying “live long and prosper”):
Don’t become puffed up – Do live by your faith!
Heavenly Father, thank you for another new day started anew! Thank you for the majestic sunrise and masterpiece sunset. Thank you for the moon and the stars in the night. Thank you for the noon day sun. Thank you for the clouds with their rain and snow. Thank you for this wonderful world that you created for us. Thank you for giving us Your Word as our scriptures. And thank you for the scripture to base today’s prayer for your daughter:
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)
Lord, what an interesting time we are in. And in the midst of the many things going on all around me, I enjoy taking time away from it all to sit with you. And now with tears I come before you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. With tears and bated breath as you allow me a glimpse of what it can be like to be in the spotlight day after day. And so I pray another big prayer today for your daughter Lindsey who loves you so very much. Remember her this day Lord for she wants to live by her faith. Lord, be with her this day and help her walk by faith. Show her the way to walk and give her the courage to walk it. Lord, Habakkuk reminds us what it means to NOT live by faith … I ask that you help Lindsey to not stray from your path. Help her to not become puffed up. Keep her on your path and help her to keep her ego from being inflated. She wants to live with integrity Lord, so be with her every step of the way. And we will glorify you Lord. We will sing your praises. All the glory is to you Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
(E) Jesus is Emmanuel (Bonus: Digital Nativity – Smile! It’s Christmas!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Today I am happy to say Merry Christmas to people I meet as I remember to celebrate the birth of Jesus, of Emmanuel, and remember that indeed God is with us! Thank you for sending your Son to remove the guilt of our sin knowing that He would need to die to reconcile us with you! Thus this is more than a happy birthday wish to Jesus. This is an on my knees thank you for coming to save us Jesus! And today for the letter E we acknowledge his coming as Emmanuel:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23)
Lord, here I am on this special day knowing that you are always there for me. You don’t close shop for holidays or holy days. You are with us always. And today my prayer for your delightful daughter celebrates that you are with her! I pray that Lindsey would feel your presence all around her today as she celebrates the coming of Emmanuel. And we give the glory to you Lord. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, Emmanuel. Amen. (more…)
