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…)

Joy as you do good in God’s sight

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for fast typing fingers that know where to go as I type without my looking at them or at the keyboard. Thank you for the instant coordination from what I am thinking to what I am typing. And thank you for speaking to me in the same way that I can instantly hear you. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit. (Ecclesiastes 2:26)

Lord, it’s me. I am ready to begin as I stand before you on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you can do good in God’s sight. I pray that you will please your God this day. I pray that you will be able to do what is right each time a choice is set before you. And then I ask God to give you more joy with each choice. I ask that he grant you great wisdom and knowledge with each decision you make. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Do Good… your reward will be great… you will be a child of the Most High God

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for good friends. Thank you for the way friends can help each other and how it just seems natural, just the way it should be. And thank you for another day to remember how Lindsey is your daughter … a daughter of God as I begin 40 days of prayers based on commands and rewards – on obedience and joy!

[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. (Luke 6:35)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter, who strives to do what is good each and every day. Lord, I ask that you continue to show her your favor, which is a great reward, for we know that you are a gracious God. Lindsey, I pray that you will always find ways to love those who do not love you. I pray that at times you will be able to lend to people expecting nothing in return. And Lord, I pray that you would remind Lindsey how she is a daughter of the Most High, a daughter of God. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Walk before many people with good tidings and the gospel of peace

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the wonder of rain. During a downpour tons of rain fall from the sky. Just an hour before those tons of water were somehow just floating in the sky above us. What a wonder! And thank you for the scriptures for my prayer for today for your daughter Lindsey:

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:14-15)

Yes, it was written in Nahum:

15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off. (Nahum 1:15)

Lord, I am here again. I am here because I love you and love sitting with you. But right now I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who also loves you. Today I pray for your feet Lindsey. May people refer to your beautiful feet that brings you before them around the world bringing glad tidings of good things! Glad and good. May God provide you with many opportunities walk before many people with good tidings and the gospel of peace. 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…)

Love life? Then watch your tongue, do good and pursue peace

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for bright sunshine this morning. Thank you for the clean clear crisp air. Thank you for the joy of seeing bits of your glory all around me. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (1 Peter 3:10-12)

This is what the FOR is referring to:

12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. (Psalm 34:12-16)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here to begin today’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that you continue to love life and desire many more good days ahead of you. What should you do? Interesting how Peter is quoting from what David wrote in Psalm 34. It seems like there are three things that both Peter and David say are important for you to do. First, watch what you say; guard your mouth … and interesting how that ties in with my prior prayers that speak to the condition of your heart. Next, turn away from evil and do good! Finally, pursue peace. So, today I pray these over you Lindsey. I pray that in your journey with God, that you would always watch what you are saying, always aim to do good and see peace as a goal worth pursuing. I pray that God would grant you the grace you need in this and that he would always show you the path to follow … for the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears hear your prayers. And we will give the glory to him. All glory goes to God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Fill your heart with good treasures

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the rains needed by the plants and animals. Thank you for the sun for warmth as well as for light in the day. And thank you for the lights in the night – the moon and all the stars. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40)

Yes, the book of Jonah says this:

17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jonah 1:17)

Yes, but why did Jesus refer to Jonah at all? It was because the scribes and Pharisees had an attitude problem and were demanding a sign or miracle right then and there! Thus this scripture is a good follow up from the prayer of yesterday where I prayed that you would watch over your heart that it would not become hardened:

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (Matthew 12:34-39)

Lord, I’m back (as usual). I am ready to begin another prayer for Lindsey. Today’s scripture is interesting on many levels. We begin by hearing Jesus refer to his coming death, burial and resurrection by comparing it to the prophet Jonah. Jonah thought he was running away from God, but he ended up being the sign for the ages! But I think it it is just as interesting to see what had just happened before Jesus said this. He saw the generation around him and warned them to look at their hearts! He even gave them an easy way to tell if their hearts were filled with good or with evil.. just look at what they say and do. And so once again I pray for your heart Lindsey. Jesus considered your heart as essential and said that you could store up good or evil in it. I pray that today you store up much good in your heart. I pray that each day you actively look for ways that you can store up good treasures in your heart to keep it fully filled. I also pray that you always will pay attention to what you say because Jesus said it comes from the abundance of your heart. I pray that you will always use this as an early detection system for your heart. If you notice evil coming out of your mouth, I pray that you would find time to pause and refill your heart with good treasures again. And 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…)

When kicked, what comes out? Good? Evil?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the rain that is essential for growth. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer that reminds me of something I learned a decade ago:

[Jesus said:] For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:45)

Lord, I am here to sit with you, as usual. I am here to begin another day’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray for your heart. I pray that your heart would be filled with good. I pray that whenever you find your heart filled with ill intent, anger, frustration, evil … that God would help you to notice it and give you suggestions on what you can do to remove the bad and refill with good. Perhaps today’s scripture helps point out that we need to monitor our own hearts. A good indicator is what happens when we are kicked. When you get kicked, slighted, put down, insulted … what comes out of your mouth? Yes, your mouth, for out of the abundance of your heart your mouth speaks! If honey comes out, praise God that your heart is doing well. However, if you snap, yell, mumble, insult back … then take note that your built in indicator just lit up it’s red warning light. Your heart has been infiltrated with evil. Your heart has become a bit corrupted. I pray that when your warning indicator lights up that God would help you to notice it immediately and that he would show you what you need to do to refresh your heart, to refill it with good to overflowing and to expel everything that has polluted your heart! This is not easy, so I pray that God would be there at your side and that he would help you. I pray that he would pull you out of any pit you may have fallen into. I pray that he would dust you off, fill you with his joy and send you back smiling. And we can 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…)

Blessing: May you see how good the Lord is

Lindsey, since you have placed your trust in the Lord, I bless you and pray that you will see the goodness of the Lord. I pray that he will show you how good and wonderful he is to all those who take shelter in him, as you have.

Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome another day surrounded by your creation. I just saw an interesting documentary on the Monarch butterfly which migrates from Canada to Mexico and back, and the experts were wondering how they can navigate to precisely the right place and the right time (as well as how they can even make that LONG trip at all). And so I thank you for the beautiful butterflies that you created for us enjoy! And thank you also for the scripture that I am to use to bless your daughter today:

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. (Psalm 34:8)

Lord, I am here again. I am here to bless your daughter who loves and trusts in you. Lindsey, today I bless you with all the good gifts that the Lord showers upon you. You have but a taste of how good the Lord is. I pray that you hunger and thirst for him and that the Lord will continue to bless you in this each and every day. And we will give the glory to the Lord. All the glory is yours Lord. Amen (more…)

Blessing: Speak Good Words to Influence Others

As many around you celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with green beer, I will celebrate it with another special blessing for you Lindsey. Where ever you go, be the mouth of the Lord, even when you are not speaking since your music goes with you and you influence others. May the Lord make you as a fortified wall, may he make you utterly secure so that you can influence those around you rather then let them influence you or make you afraid to tell the world about your beliefs, about your God who is there to save you, rescue you and keep you safe.

Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome the day celebrating a godly man who the world refers to as Saint Patrick. Thank you for providing a day named with holy reference and may it provide an excuse for some people to find you. Thank you for drawing them to you this day. And thank you for the special blessing in scriptures that I can pray over your beloved daughter Lindsey today:

Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible. (Jeremiah 15:19-21)

Lord, I am here again, ready to bless your daughter who loves you. Yes, today I pray this special blessing over you Lindsey, the blessing that I prayed at the very start of today’s prayer! While the world celebrates a godly man with drinking, may you celebrate this day acknowledging and praising our God Almighty. And we both can give all the glory to the Lord. The glory is all his. I pray this blessing over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: May You have Everything You Need to Excel in Every Good Work

Lindsey, this day I bless you and ask that God make all grace overflow to you so that you will have enough of everything in every way at all times that you may excel in every good work.

Hello Heavenly Father. I welcome another wonderful day. I acknowledge an amazing day set before me. Thank you for my life. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for the many things you do for me that I don’t notice. I am glad to be on this journey with you Lord.  And I am glad to pray another blessing over your daughter Lindsey with this scripture you gave me:

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8)

Lord, it is time to add another blessing over your daughter you love. I have been looking forward to this and so now I bless you Lindsey. I pray that God would make all grace overflow to you so you will have everything you need every minute of the day and that you thus can excel in many good works this day. And we will give all the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. Amen (more…)
