You are appointed as a Musician to play your Violin Joyfully

Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for providing us with such interesting weather. Calm and humid and then suddenly extremely windy and cool. Raining hard and then all of a sudden sunny and nice. And all this in just one day. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers with instruments of musick, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy. (1 Chronicles 15:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I am ready to pray for Lindsey now. Lindsey, I pray today that you would be able to use the many musical talents, skills and gifts with joy. I pray that your concerts would be joyful times for you. I pray that the thousands who come to hear you will hear more than just you. I pray that the love and grace of God will shine through each of your performances. Perhaps God has set you in this place just like how 1 Chronicles refers to musicians being appointed to sing and to play their instruments. I pray that the joy of the Lord would be with you during each day of your tour. And we can give the glory to God. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Welcome God to come – sing and play your instruments (and maintain a childlike enthusiasm!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the waves upon the beach. Thank you for the joy they bring to the children. Thank you for the excitement in their voices, in their eyes, in their jumping around. Thank you for reminding us that we are to be like little children if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven*. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey, who is very much like those energetic, enthusiastic children:

Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God. (2 Chronicles 5:12-14)

Lord, here I am again. I am here on behalf of Lindsey again today as usual. I ask that whenever she plays her violin and praises you Lord, that you would fill that place even if it is a concert hall or outdoor music festival! And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

*And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)

Enter the city with the sound of stringed instruments then proceed to the house of the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the small, the little, the tiny. The small drops of rain that combine into a puddle or even fill the streets. The little seed that ends up a huge bush or tree.  The tiny organisms seen only under a microscope. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 20:27-28)

Lord, I’m here again. It’s me! I am here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter you love.  Today I pray that Lindsey may be in the forefront with the leaders singing and playing and rejoicing.  Let them parade into the city and then enter your temple with songs of praise. And all the glory is yours Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Why are you cast down? Why are you disquieted? God is Your Exceeding Joy!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for allowing me to sleep at night so I can wake in the morning, new and renewed. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. (Psalm 43:4-5)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to lift up your daughter who loves you. Lord, I ask that today you be Lindsey’s exceeding joy.  Fill her with your joy Lord. And then give her a chance to play it back to you on her violin. Let her play her song that reminds herself NOT to be cast down, NOT to be disquieted and NOT to allow that inner turmoil. Instead, renew her hope Lord, for you are her salvation and each new day she can sing and play her praises to you. Yes, all the glory goes to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen (more…)

Play before God with All Your Might!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the many colors seen in your creation around me.  Thank you for the greens in the grass and the trees. Thank you for the blues in the sky. Thank you for the pinks in the sunset. And thank you for the browns in the dirt and the sand. Thank you for the seemingly unlimited colors in nature! And thank you for the scripture to use in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjath-jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the Lord, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it. And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart. And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. (1 Chronicles 13:6-8)

Lord, here I am. I am here again on behalf of your daughter you love. Today I ask that you give her the same passion for you that King David and all Israel had as related in 1 Chronicles 13. They played and sang and danced before you with all their might. I ask that you give Lindsey the opportunity this week do the same … to play and dance before you God. To play and dance before you with all her might! And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)

Praise God with Violin and with Dance

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the weather! Thank you for the ever changing weather. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalm 150:3-6)

Lord, I’m here again. I am ready to lift up your daughter you love again this day! I ask that you give her ways to praise you with violin and dance. Let her praise you along with all that have breath. Let her praise you along with all of creation! And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

All types of instruments can be used to praise the Lord

Good morning Heavenly Father. What a good and great morning it is. Thank you for the dawn where light shines forth from the prior darkness. Thank you for the light so that our eyes may see. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey.

And David and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. (2 Samuel 6:5)

But also keep in mind what immediately follows (pointing out how they were incorrectly transporting the ark of God):

And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God. (2 Samuel 6:6-7)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m ready to lift up your daughter. Let her play before you Lord. Let her play on an instrument made of wood. Let her music be joyful and acknowledging you Lord. Let her dance and play joyful melodies and harmonies. Let her fly through the air with joyful dancing. But I also ask that you protect her Lord. I ask that you keep her rejoicing on track and  on the path you would have her go. I ask that anytime her rejoicing is for the wrong reasons, that you open her eyes and her heart.  Let her not be deceived nor misled. Let her not forget that you have set down guidelines for her to follow, just as you set guidelines for the Israelites to follow when transporting the ark of God. And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Praise God with your violin among many nations

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for hummingbirds, so small and pretty as they dart here and there between their favorite flowers. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. (Psalm 57:7-9)

Lord, I’m here again. I so look forward to the times when I can simply sit with you. And now I offer up another prayer for your daughter. She has the musical talent and skills. She is filled with the joy of the Lord. And now I ask what seems to be a big prayer. Let her heart be fixed on you God. Let her heart be ready.  Let her be determined Lord. Wake her early so she can sing and play to you. Let her wake the sleepy dawn with praise. Let this be her joy regardless of what nation she is in. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Rejoice! Praise God with Dance! Sing Praise with harp and lyre

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank  you for the great variety of food  and drink! Today I thank you for coffee (and hot chocolate … and the two intertwined as Mocha).  I also thank you for the next scripture to use for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. (Psalm 149:1-3)

Lord, I am here to sit with you again, as I begin another daily prayer for your daughter you love. Today I ask that you give her a new song. I ask that you place a new song in her heart and in her mind. Let it be a song of rejoicing. Let it be a song that she can dance to. Let it be a song that gives praise to you Lord, even while others may not recognize exactly why the song seems so “good”. And we will give the glory to you Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Skilled, Trained Accomplished Musicians

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for bees. Yes, they can sting, but they are necessary for other parts of your creation. Thank you for allowing us to see how the many parts of your creation can be interdependent on each other. And thank you for the scripture that speaks about accomplished musicians who were skilled and trained, just as your daughter Lindsey is!

All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house of the Lord, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king’s order to Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman. So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the Lord, even all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight. (1 Chronicles 25:6-7)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here to begin today’s prayer for your daughter. You have gifted her with amazing musical talent and skill, just as those that 1 Chronicles speaks about. I ask that you open doors for her to use her skill and talent in ways that bring praise to your name Lord. She is an accomplished musician, just like Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman. Reveal to her ways that she may bring praise to you through her music throughout the world. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
