Fret at night? Fuss about too early in the morning? NOT!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the wind. Gusts of wind. Cold blasts of wind. Fierce WIND! And then calm (for just 7 seconds, then more wind!) Thank you for letting it be a reminder that what we cannot see can be more real than what we see. Thank you for allowing me to know that you are right here with me even though I cannot see you with my eyes, for my heart can see you! And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey:
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. (Psalm 127:2)
Lord, I am here again. I’m here as usual to begin a new prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, God loves you so much that he will give you peaceful sleep. He loves you so much that he calls you “beloved”. He loves you so much that he goes “out of his way” (so to speak) to remind you of things that are important. And today, he reminds you to not worry. Don’t get anxious about the next day, waking up too early to fuss about trying to get everything “just right”. He points out that perhaps staying up late moaning about what happened that day may not be a good idea. And so I ask God to watch over you while you sleep. I ask that he give you pleasant dreams and a peaceful moment when you awake. I ask that he be with you late at night reminding you that everything is OK because he is in charge, he has control, and you can just go to sleep! I pray for you Lindsey … that you would be content each day regardless of the circumstances. I pray sweet contentedness over you. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Be content and courageous every day. Never be afraid for God promised to never leave you.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the reflections in the water on the streets. Thank you for the ripples of slowly falling rain drops in the puddles. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)
Yes, in Joshua he said:
5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Joshua 1:5)
And a few lines later he rephrases it:
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:9)
Lord, I am here again and ready to begin a new prayer for Lindsey your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray courage over you. This day I pray contentedness around you. I pray that you would be content in any and all situations. I pray that wherever you go, that you would always remember that God is there with you. Lord, I ask that each day you find a way to show yourself to Lindsey, to call to her mind that you are there with her just as you promised. Lindsey, remember that God will never leave you nor fail you so you can walk with courage and need never to be afraid. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all 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 another new day. Thank you for letting us start anew each day regardless of what transpired the prior day. Thank you for being with us from the moment we wake. And thank you for watching over us while we sleep. It is comforting to know that you are always with us. Always. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer for your gifted daughter Lindsey:
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. (Philippians 4:11-12)
Lord, I ask that you provide Lindsey with a feeling of contentment this day. Help her to be content in whatever circumstances she finds herself in today, whether in abundance or suffering need. And in this I also ask that you continue to be her provider this day. As a loving Father, you know what she needs today. Thank you for being her provider, day after day. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory goes to you. I pray this in the name and with the authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
