The Lord trains your hands and your fingers!

I welcome another new day with your Heavenly Father. Thank you for giving us your Word as our guide. Thank you for all the people who kept it intact and those who painstakingly translated it into English so we could read it. And thank you for this scripture to use for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey who you have given great skills in her hands and fingers:

Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: (Psalm 144:1)

and

And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen. (Exodus 35:25)

and

Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work. (Exodus 35:35)

Lord, I am excited to be here with you now so that I can pray these scriptures over your daughter Lindsey, who you have gifted with great skills with her hands and her fingers. Lord, she is using your gifts. She practices to perfect the skills you gave her … even while riding in a car (see 6 second video clip below). And now I pray for your Lindsey. I pray that you would continue to find ways to use the many skills that God has given you. Use them to inspire others. Be a role model for other girls and young women. Don’t be afraid to tell them that your skills are those given to you by your gracious and generous God. And we will give the glory to him. The glory goes to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NLT: Praise the LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle. (Psalm 144:1) [resources]

NETEvery woman who was skilled spun with her hands and brought what she had spun, blue, purple, or scarlet yarn, or fine linen, (Exodus 35:25) [resources]

ESV: He has filled them with skill to do every sort of work done by an engraver or by a designer or by an embroiderer in blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, or by a weaver—by any sort of workman or skilled designer. (Exodus 35:35) [resources]

Do not be dismayed or discouraged for God will strengthen and help you

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for birds. Thank you for the wide variety of birds. Thank you for letting us see how they can fly together, even at times in a formation. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10)

followed by:

For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:13)

Lord, I am here again. I am here on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, if the God of the universe is holding your right hand, what need you be afraid of? If the all powerful God says he will help and uphold you, need you be dismayed? If your zealous compassionate God is strengthening you, need you be discouraged? No, these are not trick questions! Rather they are asking you to remember God’s promises to you. Lord, I ask that you find ways to show Lindsey first hand how you will hold her right hand. I ask that you reveal a bit of your mighty strength to her so that she can KNOW that she need not be afraid. Lord I ask that you place people in her path that can remind of these things. People who will encourage her. Lindsey, you are the daughter of the King – he will not abandon you. He never forgets you. He is with you right now and every moment of your life. And so we gladly give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to God. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen  (more…)
