(K) Kezia – Fairest in the Land

Lindsey, today I pray that like Kezia there would be an inheritance given to you. I pray that you would be the fairest in the land (remembering that there is no such thing as a magic mirror!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the night sky. Thank you for the heavens at night. Thank you for the moon which gradually changes it’s appearance over the course of a month. Thank you for the stars in the sky and for the constellations that can be made from them. Thank you for beauty in the heavens as well as in the land. And thank you for Job’s daughter Kezia, for the letter K as we go through Women in the Bible:

And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. (Job 42:14-15)

Lord,  I am here again. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey, the daughter who loves you! I’m here to begin another daily prayer for her. Lindsey, today’s prayer may be simple, but it is meaningful as well. For today I pray that there would be an inheritance for you, just as there was for Kezia. And I truly pray that you would be like Kezia and be called the fairest in the land. I pray that this would not be something prideful or arrogant, but that you would be fairest as well as gentle, meek and compassionate. I pray that these virtues would be granted to you in combination so that they blend together so that both in the eyes of God as well as the eyes of the world that it would be said no women could be found as fair as you. But we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen




Beauty in the Night Sky

Heavenly Father … this day I ponder the glory of the heavens, the majestic beauty of the night sky. When you created the stars, you did not create just enough that the sky looked pretty.  You did not stop with merely a couple hundred stars, nor a couple thousand stars. Even a million stars was not enough.  You created billions … and all this for us as part of your creation that we have before our very eyes. Thank you Lord. Thank you for caring for us so much that you would create such a vast universe for us to see – both with our eyes and with our telescopes. Thank you! And thank you for the scripture that goes with this for me to use in my prayer this day for your artistic daughter:

Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth (Isaiah 40:26)

Lord, I pray that you would grant Lindsey time one night this week to simply gaze up at the starry sky. Grant her time for this Lord. And while she lifts her eyes to the sky, let her see your majestic beauty unfold before her very eyes. Let it be her inspiration for the next day. Yes!  Lord, show Lindsey a bit of your glory as she lifts her eyes on high. And in turn, we will give you all the glory Lord. All the glory is indeed yours! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
