God Made You, Redeemed You, Called You and Saved You

Heavenly Father, good evening! What a good evening it is. It is a great evening! Thank you for being with me. Thank you for the new task you have set before me. And thank you for promising to not overwhelm me with it. Thank you for continuing to speak today. Thank you for allowing me to once again pray for your daughter Lindsey, whom you created and formed. And thank you for the scripture to use for this prayer:

But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
    he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
    Cush and Seba in exchange for you. (Isaiah 43:1-3 ESV)

Lord, I’m still here with you. And now I lift up your daughter Lindsey. Lord you have gifted her with so many special talents when you created her. Lindsey, you continue to use those talents and skills that God has given you, day after day, week after week, year after year! I know it is not easy, but God has promised to be there with you. If you ever begin to feel overwhelmed, stop for a moment and ask God for strength. He is with you just waiting for you to ask for anything you need. You are his and he has called you by name.  While I can pray for you, it is the Lord your God who is your Savior. And with God at your side, you need not be afraid. There is nothing to fear. God has given you special talents and is delighted to watch you put them to good use. But the glory is his. All the glory goes to God. We give him the glory always. Yes. We give you the glory Lord. Glory! I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. (Isaiah 43:1-3 KJV)

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:

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:

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:

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…)

(Z) Zipporah – saved the life of Moses!

Lindsey, you too can save someone’s life just like Zipporah saved the life of Moses!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my lungs which are designed so well to take the oxygen I breathe and provide it to all my body. Thank you such a well designed body! It is amazing! And thank you for the final woman of the Bible for these last 26 prayers for your daughter Lindsey:

And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met him, and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me. So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision. (Exodus 4:24-26)

Lord, I am here again. It is so nice to come and sit with you, especially today for my final prayer of this 40 days of prayer for your daughter you love! Lindsey, I pray that you would keep your eyes and ears alert for people God sets in your path.  Many people can at times need someone to step in to save them… even Moses!  Scriptures tell us that it was his wife who somehow knew what was needed, and bravely stepped up and did it! God showed her and God can show you too. I pray that you would continue to be alert to all that God shows you and that God would then give you the courage to step up to actually DO what is needed. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(J) Jehoshabeath (Jehosheba) – Courage and Compassion

Lindsey, I have been waiting for the letter J to come up so that I could pray that you would have the same courage and compassion as Jehoshabeath had. She risked her own life while trying to save the life of Joash who was just one years old. I pray that you would be filled with this same courage and compassion and that you would not be afraid to act on it.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the beautiful flowers on the trees, which only last a few days. But you still created that beauty for us to see. Thank you for the way you display your glory all around us. And thank you for the story of Jehoshabeath, the woman of the Bible for the letter J:

But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of Judah. But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king’s sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not. And he was with them hid in the house of God six years: and Athaliah reigned over the land. (2 Chronicles 22:10-12)

Lord, I am here again. I enjoy sitting with you. I enjoy coming to pray for your daughter Lindsey who you love. Lindsey, today I pray a big prayer. This is a big prayer because it can mean that you will lay everything on the line. But it is worth it, so I pray that God would fill you with the same extreme courage and compassion that Jehoshabeath had. I pray that God would let you see when this courage and compassion is needed and that you would not be afraid to step out at that time. I pray that God would grant you more wisdom and discernment this day. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Jesus Christ, King of kings. Amen

(E) Esther – Courage for a Time Such As This

Lindsey, may you have the courage of Esther, for you too are here for a time such as this. May God grant you the grace to act courageously and wisely. God knows your weakness, your strength and your potential. Have faith in God and in his power, especially when he asks hard things of you.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the squirrels playing tag in our back yard. Thank you for the birds perched in our trees. Thank you for all your wonderful creation. And thank you for the book of Esther which provides a woman in the Bible for the letter E:

Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time,then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? (Esther 4:13-14)

Lord, here I am. I came to sit with you. To sit and talk. And to pray for your daughter Lindsey, who you love. I pray now for you Lindsey. I pray that God would let you know what he has planned for you, as you may be here for such a time as this. I pray that God will grant you extra courage as well as extra wisdom that you will need on your journey. I pray that God would increase your faith in him and in his power, especially when things get hard for you. And we can give God all the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
