Seek good so the Lord will be with you

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for musical chords. Thank you for melodies. Thank you for harmony. Thank you for the many sounds that can combine into a pleasing sound we call music. And thank you for this scripture for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph. (Amos 5:14-15)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as usual to begin another daily prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, since you desire God to be with you, this scripture points out that you simply should seek good and not evil. Hate the evil and love the good. While this is quite simple to say, it can be rather difficult in while you are out in the world. So I pray that the Lord would continue to be your guide to point out the good path before you. I pray that you would clearly see the choices before you to determine the good. I pray that you continue to always seek good. And then I ask God to be with you. I ask God to make his presence with you obvious to you and that it would bring you great joy. Lindsey, your God is gracious. May he clearly be gracious to you this day! And we will give the glory to God. GLORY! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(H) Hannah – God’s gracious response to her prayer

Lindsey, I pray today that God will hear your prayers when you pour out your soul before the Lord. May the Lord hear your prayers coming direct from your heart. May the Lord grant your request as he granted Hannah’s request.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for letting me taste things. Taste is fantastic, yet so often we just take it for granted. But today, I thank you for taste! And I also thank you for the scriptures about Hannah that I can use for Women in the Bible for the letter H:

And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.  And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord. Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. (1 Samuel 1:12-17)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here as always to pray for your daughter Lindsey. And today I pray that Hannah may be a model for you. She prayed to God from her heart … no sounds at all.  And God heard her prayer and answered her request. And she then praised God (see chapter 2). So, today I pray that whenever situations become intense or overwhelming that you would  follow Hannah’s example and pour out your soul to the Lord, expecting him to answer you. Yes … and I pray that God would indeed hear your prayers, hear your requests and that he would answer you clearly. 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…)

Blessing: May God Shine His Light On You So You May Follow His Way

May the Lord be merciful to you Lindsey and bless you. May he turn his face to shine his light on you so you may learn to follow his way.

Heavenly Father, good morning. What a glorious set of seasons and of a variety of weather you created for us. Springlike weather the past two days and a foot of snow today followed by thunderstorms and rain tomorrow. Thank you for weather that is not constantly the same and boring :) And thank you for the scripture to use to bless your daughter Lindsey:

God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. (Psalm 67:1-3)

Lord, I am happy to be here with you this morning so that I can bless your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that God will pour his grace and blessings into you and that his light would shine on you. May many others come to join you in praising our true God who comes to redeem nations. May his way  be known across the earth. And we will give the glory to you Lord, All glory is yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing – the Lord be gracious unto you

Lindsey, I bless you this day with a blessing from my favorite book of the Bible!

Heavenly Father, thank you for smiles. We are in your image and we can smile. What an amazing thing, a smile. Thank you for all the smiles I will see today! And thank you for the blessing today that comes from my favorite book of the Bible, Numbers:

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)

Lord, it’s still me. I am here on behalf of your daughter who loves you. Today I ask that you bless her in the way that you asked Aaron to bless your people. Lindsey, today I pray that blessing over you.

May the Lord bless you Lindsey, and keep you and take good care of you.
May the Lord’s face shine upon you and may he be kind and gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance on you. May he look on you with favor and give you peace.

And we give all the glory to the Lord. All the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(P) You are Precious

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for memories. Thank you for a reasoning mind that I have used constantly for well over half a century and it is still working :) I don’t know where all the memories go, but somehow they are there when I think back to what once was. What a miracle. Thank you Lord.  And thank you for the scripture for the letter P which I have been looking forward to so that I can pray it over your daughter who loves you so much:

If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, (1 Peter 2:3-4)

Lord, here I am. It’s me! I’m here on behalf of the daughter who is so very precious to you. I ask that you let her see herself the way that you see her. Open her eyes and her mind so that she can see as you do for a brief moment. Let her see how she is precious to you Lord. As she travels around this wonderful world, help her to always remember that you know her by name and that she is very precious to you. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
