Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for helping me to keep a grateful heart. Thank you for reminding us how important it is to be thankful. And thank you for the scripture to use for your daughter Lindsey:
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Galatians 5:13-14)
This was said in Leviticus:
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:18)
Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to begin a new days prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, you were called to freedom, called to liberty. I pray that you will each day find ways to use your freedom to serve others. I pray that your mind would always be forgiving and your heart would always be loving, even to those who you feel do not deserve it. I pray that you would find ways to compete with those on your tours to see who can serve the others the most. 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…)
Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for cereal. Thank you for the many kinds. Thank you that we can eat cereal any time day or night. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for Lindsey (who also really really likes cereal):
[Jesus said:] But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:35-38)
Lord, I’m here as usual to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray another scripture over you regarding giving. This time Jesus is encouraging us to be generous, for in the same measure that we are generous, that same measure will be used when he is gracious to us. So I pray that God would keep your heart soft. I pray that God would fill you so full of joy that you can only think about how to respond to him. I pray that being generous would continue to be simply a way of life for you. And I pray that those around you would see this in you as you are a role model for them. And we will give all the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for flowers! Thank you for the lupine flower that my friends talked about this morning. Thank you for how such a simple flower can be so majestic when seen in a group. Thank you for how the colors of that same flower can vary so greatly, yet the flower itself is solid in one color. Thank you for how grouped together the different colors go so well together! Perhaps this is an example of how differences can add even more to what individually was quite good! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you this morning as usual. I’m here to lift up your daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture reminds us of how Jesus prayed … prayed often and in many ways. But today’s scripture is often referred to as his model prayer. So we can pray it together now. We pray to our heavenly Father and honor his name. We ask for his will to be done right here, right now. We ask for him to continue to be our provider and to forgive us as we also remember that we too forgive others! And we ask for him to protect us from the evil in the world and give him all the glory. Yes, the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
