(A) Abigail – Wise, Generous, Quick-witted and Blessed

Lindsey, may you have spunk just like Abigail. May you be as generous, quick-witted, wise and blessed as Abigail. May you be a peacemaker as Abigail was.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for your Word. Thank you for the many people and stories in your Word. Thank you for the story about Abigail as I start looking at women in scriptures from A to Z. Most of her story is included at the end of this prayer, with a few highlights here:

And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my lord, upon me let this iniquity be: and let thine handmaid, I pray thee, speak in thine audience, and hear the words of thine handmaid. …

I pray thee, forgive the trespass of thine handmaid: for the Lord will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fighteth the battles of the Lord, and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days. …

And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me: And blessed be thy advice, and blessed be thou, which hast kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with mine own hand. (1 Samuel 25:23-24, 28, 32-33)

Lord, here I am, ready to start the first of 26 prayers based on women in scriptures. I ask for your help and your words in these prayers as I pray for your daughter Lindsey. Today, I pray that you would bless her as David blessed Abigail. I pray that you would grant Lindsey wisdom and quick-wittedness where ever she goes. Let her see situations through your eyes Lord. I also pray that you would help her to know when it would be wise to be generous as Abigail was. Let Lindsey rise up during adversity and any pending crisis as Abigail did. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
