Do what is right and good that all may be well with you
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the stars at night. It is so amazing to know how far away they are, yet we can see their light even from such a great distance. Thank you for placing Lindsey before the world as a bright flare and for the scripture to use in my prayer for her this day:
And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, (Deuteronomy 6:18)
Lord, I’m here again as usual. I’m here to lift up Lindsey to you. She loves you Lord and tries to do what is right and good in your sight. Help her to realize that many people are watching, see her flare in the night and then look at what she is doing. Lindsey, perhaps doing what is right and good for all to see is your gift to many who are looking at you after noticing your flare in the night. God has gifted you immensely. He has given you much. But much is required from those who have been given much:
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:48)
Lindsey, God has not given you so much talent and skill to just drop you in the deep end to let you fend for yourself. He is there with you. Any time you feel like faltering just pause and look around you. Pause and remember that God is there next to you and he promised that all will be well with you… just do what is right and good. Easy to see, easy to understand … but hard to do at times. I ask God to provide you with the protection you need in the midst of all the pressure that is on you as someone caught in the spotlight. And together we can give God the glory. The glory is all his. GLORY! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Receive the gift of grace. Take hold of it. Make it yours.
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for sunshine. Thank you for sunlight. Thank you for the warmth of the sun. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer and for calling to mind how it correlates to what your daughter Lindsey was just thinking about! Because, while I was preparing this scripture for today’s prayer, I remembered that she had just posted something on facebook about God’s gift of grace! Yep, here: Lindsey’s Facebook Post
And here is the scripture about the gift of grace:
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Ephesians 4:4-8)
Yes, this was said in the Psalms:
18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them. (Psalm 68:18)
Lord, I am here! I’m here to begin today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey, the daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray that God’s gift of grace be yours. May you take hold of it and make it yours. May you receive it with a loud Thank You God! And together we acknowledge all that this scripture says leading up to that grace. Within your calling there is one body and one Spirit. There is just one faith and one God who is in you. And thus we praise him now. We glorify him. We give all the glory to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Who Encourages the Encouragers?
Heavenly Father, hello again! I come before you today on behalf of your gifted daughter. But first I must thank you for being her provider and her protector. Thank you for being her guide and for watching over her both day and night. Thank you Lord. And thank you for providing the scripture to use for my prayer for Lindsey this day:
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8)
Lord, I am so proud of your daughter. You have bestowed on her the gift of music and the ability to perform well. And it seems that she is not merely entertaining her audience. Rather she is inspiring them and encouraging them. She is a role model for many young women today. Both her music and her life is uplifting to those around her. One of her many gifts is to encourage others and she is using that gift well. However, Lord, she in turn needs encouragement. And so I pray that you would let her path intersect with people who will encourage her. Open her ears to hear words of encouragement spoken over her. Lord, let my prayers be an encouragement to her. Help me to encourage the encourager! And we will give you the glory. All the glory we give to you Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
