You are being renewed day by day

Good evening Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day, another day anew. Thank you for the friends you have provided me. And, yes, thank you for hair! What a marvelous concept! Hair can bring out the beauty in people as it flows here and there accentuating various facial features. While I may not be able to see some of the details of a face as most people, I do see hair. And it is so amazing! And to think … each strand of hair is “alive” in that it grows and over the years can change color (without any assistance of hair coloring). Thank you for this very interesting part of the people you create! And thank you for the scripture to use for this prayer:

13 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. (2Corinthians 4:13-20 ESV)

Lord, I’m still here. I am ready to pray for your daughter you love. I am here to pray for Lindsey! Lord, I ask that you grant her a spirit of faith… that you would increase her faith. I also ask that since she believes that you give her many opportunities to “speak”. Give her the words Lord. Remind her of things she already knows. Remind her that just as Jesus was raised … and so shall she. Yes, Lindsey, that is God’s promise and he is faithful to keep his promises. Always! And I also pray for you Lindsey that you never lose heart. There will be momentary afflictions … likely MANY of them. But each one is preparing you for a weight of glory! And it is this unseen aspect of our lives that is so important. I pray that you would grasp how the unseen are what is important. Things you see will pass away, but the unseen is eternal. Continue to take hold of that Lindsey. And together let’s praise the Lord. Let’s give all the glory to him. Yes. I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.


Live by Faith and Don’t Shrink Back.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the sun rising in the east starting the new day. Thank you for the beauty of that sun rise, for the many colors. And thank you for the scripture for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey today:

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. (Hebrews 10:35-39)

Lord, it’s me again. I’m here to lift up your daughter who loves you. Don’t cast away your confidence Lindsey. Live by faith in your God. Believe in him and save your soul. Meet the challenges of the day head on and do not shrink back. Run with endurance. Play with endurance and your reward will be great. Yes, you need endurance to do God’s will. Lord, I ask that you increase Lindsey’s faith. Build up her endurance. And enhance her confidence. And we give the glory to you. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

What do you love? The praise of men? The praise of God? Choose!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the ground under my feet. Thank you for solid ground below me and thank you for your Word which gives me solid ground as I walk with you on the path you set before me. And thank you for this scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. (John 12:42-43)

Lord, I’m here again, ready to lift up Lindsey to you, for she does indeed believe in you as the Christ and Messiah. Lindsey, today’s scripture talks about how many leaders truly believed in Jesus, but would not say so openly because they did not want to be expelled from the synagogue. And this warning seems to be for us today as well. Are we yearning for the praise from men more than from God? This scripture seems to tell us to act on what we believe is true, regardless of the consequences set on us by men. Lindsey, around the world people are killed for saying aloud that they believe in Jesus. Elsewhere, as in this scripture, people are kicked out of their temple for publicly acknowledging Jesus as their lord. And here in our country we see more and more people not willing to tell others that they believe in Jesus as the Messiah because they would lose the praise of the people around them, which they value more than praise from God. And so I pray this over you not Lindsey. I pray that you would have the courage to act on your belief in Jesus, regardless of the consequences. I pray that you would strive to receive praise from your God rather than simply praise and cheers from your fans. I pray that God would find ways to let you know when HE is praising you! And we will give him the glory. The glory is all his. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Let your actions show that you believe God!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for family. And thank you for the three scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. (James 2:23)

It was the first book of the Bible (Genesis) which said it:

And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:6)

And then in 2 Chronicles it says Abraham was God’s friend:

Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? (2 Chronicles 20:7)

Lord, it’s me again. I would like to begin my next daily prayer for your daughter you love. Yes, Lindsey believes you Lord, so I ask that you count that as righteousness for her.  I ask that you call her your friend! However, Lindsey, be sure to read the 4 sentences that come before this statement in James! Be reminded that it is more than what you believe, more than mere faith … it is what you actually DO in addition to your faith and believing God. So, Lord, I ask that you give Lindsey many opportunities to put her faith into action. Give her many opportunities to actually DO things that align with her faith and what she hears you saying to her. Let her hear you clearly Lord. And give her the courage to actually do things that are not in her comfort zone! And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Don’t Panic! Just rely, trust and believe in Jesus!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Good morning and Happy Day! I welcome this new day, anew with you. I rejoice in this day praising you.  Yes, good morning, happy day and thank you for your precious Word which reminds us how we too are precious as we believe in Jesus who is the precious cornerstone of our life that Peter refers to, as Isaiah foretold about him:

To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (1 Peter 2:4-6)

Consider this scripture from Isaiah:

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Isaiah 28:16)

Lord, it’s me! I’m here! I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I was happy to find out that the button that some people wear is Biblical. “Don’t Panic!” Yes, indeed, as you look around you Isaiah said it … don’t panic and rush around. Don’t panic and make haste! Keep Calm and Believe! Perhaps the button that people are wearing needs the word “Believe” added to it! Lindsey, you have already acknowledged Jesus publicly. I pray that you will cling to him today. I pray that you will believe in him, the precious cornerstone to your life. I pray that Jesus will always be precious to you. I pray that as you firmly believe in him, that he will give you confidence and not allow you to be put to shame. I pray that as you trust and rely on Jesus, that you would never feel the need to panic and would never be confounded! And we will give the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen (more…)

Don’t be afraid! Just believe!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the new day. Thank you for joy that is evident in your creation. Thank you for cheerful birds singing in the morning. Thank you for the rising sun to welcome the day. And thank you for the scripture as the base for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. (Mark 5:35-36)

Lord, I’m here again. I’ve come to sit with you again today. I am ready to begin today’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, do not be afraid. Do not fear. Just believe in Jesus. What a very simple foundation for daily life. Simple, yes. Easy, no. It is not easy to keep clear of fear. And so today I pray that the Lord would be with you to increase your courage and let you be brave at heart. I pray that he would reduce any fear that may appear before your eyes. I pray that he would replace fear with courage. And I pray that you would strive each day to only believe. Only believe in Jesus. And all the glory is his. All the glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(Y) YOU! (Yes, YOU!)

Lindsey, today is letter Y for our A to Z of Women in the Bible, and the woman for the letter Y is YOU! Yes, you Lindsey. For in his Gospel, John specifically states that Jesus was praying for everyone who believes in him through their word! And so I repeat Jesus’s prayer that we may all be one. I pray that you and I and all the others who believe in Jesus will be one so that the world may believe!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the rain and for all your creation that depends upon it. Thank you for your sunlight that is so necessary for all life here. And thank you for including Lindsey in your scripture as one of those who believe on you:

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 17:20-21)

Lord, here I am. I am here to pray for your daughter with this special scripture that refers specifically to her. Lindsey, today I pray for you as someone who chose to believe in Jesus based on the testimony of his disciples. I pray that you too would continue to give your own testimony as to Jesus, how he died for you to redeem you and how he rose from the dead conquering death. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: You are Blessed Because You Believe in Jesus

Lindsey, today’s blessing is from Jesus who says that you are blessed because you believe even though you have not seen him. I bless you today in the name of Jesus.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the beauty in the world around me. Thank you for the joy in your creation which is there for all to see always. And thank you for the blessing from scripture that I can use to bless your daughter Lindsey:

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (John 20:29)

And the scripture that came to mind when I was thankful for the beauty and joy in the creation around us:

Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness. They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing. (Psalm 65:11-13)

Lord, I am glad to be able to be with you now to bless your daughter this day with words originally spoken by Jesus! Yes! Lindsey, you are blessed today for though you have not seen Jesus, you believe in him. And we both can give all the glory to God. The glory is all  his. I bless you in the name of Jesus Christ, King of kings. Amen (more…)
