Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for a day anew with you. Thank you for bringing clarity to my mind and thank you for answering my prayers so clearly. And thank you for the scripture to pray over Lindsey:
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. (Deuteronomy 28:2)
Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to begin today’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray God’s abundant blessings on you. God promises his blessing on you as you just listen to hear his voice. Blessings are tied in with obeying the Lord. I ask that God would show you the way to go and that he would give you the courage to actually go where he shows you. And the glory is his. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the rains needed by the plants and animals. Thank you for the sun for warmth as well as for light in the day. And thank you for the lights in the night – the moon and all the stars. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40)
Yes, the book of Jonah says this:
17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jonah 1:17)
Yes, but why did Jesus refer to Jonah at all? It was because the scribes and Pharisees had an attitude problem and were demanding a sign or miracle right then and there! Thus this scripture is a good follow up from the prayer of yesterday where I prayed that you would watch over your heart that it would not become hardened:
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (Matthew 12:34-39)
Lord, I’m back (as usual). I am ready to begin another prayer for Lindsey. Today’s scripture is interesting on many levels. We begin by hearing Jesus refer to his coming death, burial and resurrection by comparing it to the prophet Jonah. Jonah thought he was running away from God, but he ended up being the sign for the ages! But I think it it is just as interesting to see what had just happened before Jesus said this. He saw the generation around him and warned them to look at their hearts! He even gave them an easy way to tell if their hearts were filled with good or with evil.. just look at what they say and do. And so once again I pray for your heart Lindsey. Jesus considered your heart as essential and said that you could store up good or evil in it. I pray that today you store up much good in your heart. I pray that each day you actively look for ways that you can store up good treasures in your heart to keep it fully filled. I also pray that you always will pay attention to what you say because Jesus said it comes from the abundance of your heart. I pray that you will always use this as an early detection system for your heart. If you notice evil coming out of your mouth, I pray that you would find time to pause and refill your heart with good treasures again. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taste. Thank you for letting us taste the things we eat and drink. Thank you for your creation filled with such a wide variety of tastes. Thank you for things that taste sweet as well as bitter or sour. Thank you for both hot and cold tastes that can differ. Thank you for all these things that we tend to take for granted every day. And thank you for the scriptures to use in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. (2 Corinthians 8:11-15)
Yes, it is written in Exodus:
17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. (Exodus 16:17-18)
Lord, as usual, here I am. I come to sit with you every day… many times during the day. But right now I wish to begin a new prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, these short scriptures say much, and I will pray them over you now. First I pray that you will not worry about what you don’t have. Scriptures clearly say that God is looking at what you do with what you DO have. I pray that you will be able to cease worrying about what you are lacking so that you can focus on what you have in abundance! Finally, I pray that God would guide you in your abundance. When you have an abundance of something I pray that God would show you ways to help others with it. I pray that you will always find ways to share your talents and skills with others, but also I pray a bigger prayer. I pray that greed would not tempt you. I pray that you would always see ways to share your abundance with others and that the Lord would reward you with joy in your heart. I pray that you would never lack joy in your heart. I believe I also can share something God told me seven years ago. Yes, this was a word for ME, and not for anyone else. But it did come to mind as I was writing this prayer for you today. “There is no need to fear what we are lacking. Rather fear the hardening of our hearts.” I pray that you would watch over your heart Lindsey. Watch for signs that it is hardening and then take action to keep a soft heart. I pray that God would be your guide in this each day of your journey. And we will give the glory to him. All the glory goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for teeth. Thank you for my good chewing teeth. Thank you for how well teeth work! And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey for today’s prayer:
[Jesus said:] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:9-10)
Lord, I’m here. It’s me. I am ready to lift up your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that the Lord would give you an abundant life, just as he promised. All you need to do is open the door to Jesus and enter in. You can come and go in peace. I pray that each day you would look for that door that is Jesus and that each day Jesus would in turn give you a more abundant life. And we will give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for healing my knees instantly 15 years ago. Thank you for keeping them healed all these many years. Thank you for letting this miracle be my foundation of thankfulness, where I try to thank you for healing my knees any time that I am going up or down stairs. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:
And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living. (Mark 12:42-44)
Lord, here I am again. I’m here as usual on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, I am here and am praying for you. And today’s scripture is a hard one. We know that God delights in blessing each of us as we follow him and his ways. We know that he wants us to prosper. But at the same time, here we see Jesus taking note of someone who was giving all that she had and Jesus was honoring her before those he was speaking to. I don’t think giving everything is what Jesus is asking of us, or of you. But I think he is asking us to pay attention and to make sure that giving is a normal part of our daily lives. And so, Lindsey, I pray that you would continue looking for ways that you can bless those around you by giving of yourself, your time and even your resources. I pray that God would open opportunities for you and that he would clearly point them out to you. I pray that God would continue to be generous to you as you are generous to those around you. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
