Do not grieve. Wipe away the tears. Let joy be seen in your eyes again.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for creating us and for saving us through Jesus. Thank you for giving us this scripture regarding your promise of eternal life for those who leave this world to be with you:

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)

and

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; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. (2 Corinthians 4:13-14)

Lord, I am here. I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey, who has lost a very dear friend. I ask that you be with her and be her comforter. Lindsey, just as Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, I write my prayer for you to remind you of things you already know, for you are not ignorant concerning how everlasting life is waiting for each of us. You read God’s Word each day, so you are not uninformed about those who sleep in death.

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. (2 Peter 1:12)

Lindsey, today I remind you of the faith and the hope that you already have. So, don’t be concerned about your good friend Gavi. Paul reminds you to not grieve for him. For we know he has eternal life as his hope is fulfilled. So, be comforted. I pray that once again God would fill you with his joy so that you could celebrate how Jesus has brought Gavi to him. I pray that the joy of the Lord could be seen in your eyes again. And in this we 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…)

Watch where you look. Focus on Jesus and run with patience and endurance

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. Thank you for uplifting songs and how they can be inspiring even without words. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Lord, here I am as usual. I am hear to lift up Lindsey, your daughter who loves you greatly. Lord, I ask that you surround her with so many witnesses that she’d be encouraged to lay aside everything that leads to sin. Lindsey, you have the endurance to run the race. Just keep your eyes on Jesus. Focus on Jesus. Remember he considered it a joy to be shamed and hung on a cross to redeem you. You are God’s redeemed daughter! And now Jesus sits at the right hand of the throne of God and is cheering you on. He is saying “Look at her go!”. Lord, I ask that you remove any distractions that pop up before Lindsey. Remove things that try to pull her eyes away from Jesus. Lindsey, remember you are not running a sprint … you are running a marathon. With tears I pray for you as you are in the midst of this race, this journey of life. Everything won’t work out right. You can’t control everything. However, God IS in control and he will make things work out right. Just keep on running with him. Just keep looking at the ultimate goal. Don’t veer to the right or the left. Keep focused on Jesus. And we will give all the glory to him. To him is all the glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ. Amen (more…)

May others see much love, joy, peace, patience and faith in you

Good morning Heavenly Father. I welcome another day with you. A new day with you. A day anew with you! And I thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

Lord, I’m here as usual to pray for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Today I ask that you fill her with your Spirit. Fill her to overflowing so that it can be seen in her by her actions. I ask that you be her guide, her joy and her strength. Lindsey, with the power of the Spirit you can have much fruit. People are watching, so I pray that you will be living in a way that shows much fruit. I pray that you will walk in love, spread much peace and joy, be patient and longsuffering. I pray that your gentleness, meekness and goodness will be evident to those around you. There is no law against these things, so strive for them always! And we will give the glory to God. Glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

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…)

Dividing Your Loyalty between the World and God makes you Unstable

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the way our bodies are designed to keep us safe. We can touch something hot and back away. We can smell something “rotten” and discard it. We can see a danger approaching and react immediately. And thank you for giving us your Word as our guide, especially the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (James 1:5-6,8)

Lord, I’m here again on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, God has told you that you can ask for wisdom. He promised to hear and grant your request. And I will join you in this request. Lord, I ask that you grant Lindsey much wisdom for many around her are watching her and you are her generous God. And Lindsey, God also is reminding you to have faith in him and to never waver. Take care to not be double minded and divide your loyalty between God and the world, for this will eventually lead to living an unstable life where ever you go. Trust in God only. Don’t waver or waves on the sea will toss you around and you will be unstable. Lord, help Lindsey to stay stable. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Jesus Loves You. He Died for You. He Rose and So Now May Others See Jesus in Your Eyes

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for shoes (and socks). Thank you for protecting my feet everywhere I walk. Thank you for walking with me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin this days prayer for your daughter you love. And the scripture for this prayer refers to your love for her. Lindsey, Jesus loves you. He gave himself for you by being whipped and crucified. He loves you so much that he said it was like a joy to do this for you*. But though he did die for you, he also rose again. Not only that, but as you live by faith in Jesus he is living in you! So that is the reason that I can pray that you may live your life in a way that others can see Jesus in your eyes.  And why not!? He is living in you after all! So let today be a special day where Jesus makes himself evident within you. And we will give the glory to him. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

* Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Live By Faith

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the pleasant day – wonderful for my trip to visit my brother. Thank you for a bus and a plane to get me there and back. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:17)

It is written in Habakkuk:

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

Lord, I’m here. I am enjoying sitting with you. Before anything else, I wish to lift up Lindsey. She is using the exceptional talents and skills that you gifted her with. She is using those skills to inspire thousands of people. And so, Lindsey, today I pray that you will always be able to live by faith. This is one of my favorite things because I have a unique perspective on it.  Many times I have google searched to see what this condition is that I have, but have never found it mentioned. I usually cannot visualize roads while I am driving. I can drive the same way to the same place 300 times, and still at times I will be driving there and my “path” blacks out in my mind. I see the road I am driving on but I can’t picture the route I am supposed to take. I can’t “see” my next turn ahead of time. So, I just keep driving in the right direction assuming that when the turn comes, that I will recognize it and turn at that intersection. Then I will keep driving assuming that I will be fine even though I can’t visualize where I will turn next. But when I get close to the intersection, all of a sudden it is clear and I have time to make the turn. One of my good friends told me that this is a blessing, a unique blessing that God has given me. My friend told me that I may find living by faith much easier since for decades I have been driving by faith! And I think he is right. I no longer consider this a problem or disability, but I consider it a gift that helps me to know that I can truly live by faith. And so, Lindsey, I pray that you also will always find ways to remember to simply live by faith. All you need to know is the next step.  Once you take the next step, then God will show you the step that comes after it. However, in your case, it seems that God treats you to a road map well ahead of time. You have a road map of the places you are scheduled to tour. And you have a supportive godly team that goes along with you. I thank the Lord for providing you with the support and godly advice that you need when you need it.  And so, just remember that what Habakkuk said thousands of years ago was so important that Paul repeated it, quoted it in his letter to the Romans… Live By Faith. And all the while 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…)

(B) Bleeding Woman – Touched Jesus, Healed by her Faith

Lindsey, may you have faith like the bleeding woman and may you be healed and made whole!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the new day. Thank you that each day we can start anew. Thank you for my breath, my life, my health. And thank you for the scripture to use as I pray through women in the Bible from A to Z, the scripture regarding the bleeding woman:

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. (Matthew 9:20-22)

Lord, it’s me again. I’m here to pray for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that you would have the same faith that the bleeding woman had. I pray that whenever you are in need of healing, that you would ask the Lord to come and touch you, just as the bleeding woman had touched Jesus on that day almost 2,000 years ago. I pray that you would be able to hear Jesus say to you, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Blessing: May You Be Filled With Joy, Peace and Hope

May the God of hope bless you Lindsey and fill you with all joy and peace in the midst of your faith and belief that you may overflow and abound in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for my health. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life! And thank you for the scripture with a  blessing to use for your daughter this day:

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:13)

Lord, I’m here again! I’m here to bless your daughter you love. Lindsey, I bless you in the name of the God of hope that he may fill you with an abundance of joy and peace so that you will abound in hope. And all the glory is yours Lord. We give you all the glory. Amen (more…)

Don’t become puffed up – Do live by your faith!

Heavenly Father, thank you for another new day started anew! Thank you for the majestic sunrise and masterpiece sunset. Thank you for the moon and the stars in the night. Thank you for the noon day sun. Thank you for the clouds with their rain and snow. Thank you for this wonderful world that you created for us. Thank you for giving us Your Word as our scriptures. And thank you for the scripture to base today’s prayer for your daughter:

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

Lord, what an interesting time we are in. And in the midst of the many things going on all around me, I enjoy taking time away from it all to sit with you. And now with tears I come before you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. With tears and bated breath as you allow me a glimpse of what it can be like to be in the spotlight day after day. And so I pray another big prayer today for your daughter Lindsey who loves you so very much. Remember her this day Lord for she wants to live by her faith. Lord, be with her this day and help her walk by faith. Show her the way to walk and give her the courage to walk it. Lord, Habakkuk reminds us what it means to NOT live by faith … I ask that you help Lindsey to not stray from your path. Help her to not become puffed up. Keep her on your path and help her to keep her ego from being inflated. She wants to live with integrity Lord, so be with her every step of the way.  And we will glorify you Lord. We will sing your praises. All the glory is to you Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
