Where are your treasures? That’s where your heart will be!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for revitalized friendships. Thank you for coffeeshops that allow conversations off to the side yet not in private. Thank you for your Word that you gave to us and thank you to all those who kept it intact and translated it into our own language! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as I am every day, on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray a big prayer for you today. I pray that God would help you to see where your treasures really are. Are they a collection of beautiful violins? Are they a throng of people screaming with enjoyment during one of your performances? Is your treasure racking up a billion views on YouTube? All these seem to be a result of God’s favor on your life. Yet, Jesus today seems to be reminding you to take care! Be careful about what exactly you treat as your ultimate treasure! I pray that God would give you many opportunities in the coming week for you to DO THINGS that matter for God’s kingdom. I pray that God would open doors for you in this regard. I pray that you would recognize these opportunities and that you would have the courage to walk through the doors, that you can bravely walk on the path God shows you! Look into your heart today Lindsey. Double-check it. It is following after what you treasure most. I pray that today you would be accumulating treasures in heaven. I pray that you will set out to store up more heavenly treasures this day.  I pray that the desires of your heart would be heavenly today, and that it would be evident to all those around you. 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…)

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…)

Make Melodies in your Heart to the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the night sky. Thank you for the moon as it cycles night by night for 28 nights. And thank you for the many points of light in the dark sky. Thank you for being an extravagant God who didn’t create just a few hundred stars for us to see at night … but billions of stars! Thank you for letting this be just one example we can follow as we also try to be extravagant towards others. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:18-20)

Lord, I’m here again as usual to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. I pray that you would fill Lindsey with your Spirit as your scripture promises and that she also would find new melodies in her heart. Melodies that she can turn into beautiful uplifting songs. And Lindsey, remember to always give thanks for everything to God and the Father in the name of Christ Jesus. 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…)

May Your Heart Rejoice as You Walk to the Music!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for history. Thank you for how records are kept. Thank you for being there throughout history. Thank you for being with Isaiah as he wrote the scripture you gave me to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel. (Isaiah 30:29)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here… as always. I look forward to our time together. And now I am ready to lift up your daughter. Lord, I ask that you draw her to you. I ask that you lead her into your mountain. I ask that you let her know that you are there.  Give her a song Lord. Put gladness into her heart. She is looking. She is searching. She is seeking you Lord. Let her find you. Let it be the new song you give to her. Let it be the gladness of heart in that song. Let that be her walk. Let her walk to your song Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Exhortstrongly encourage or urge (someone) to do something.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for always being with me. Thank you for coming near to me anytime I draw near to you. Thank you for clearly lighting the path for me for the task you have set before me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. (Colossians 3:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you and thank you again for showing me the way to go for the task at hand. But I also am here on behalf of your daughter you love and today I have another big request. Lord, I ask that you continue to put godly advisers around her. Surround her with people who will not just encourage her, but also urge her along the right path, warning her of things she must avoid. Place people around her that can teach her with hymns and songs. Help her to sing and play with grace in her heart. And we will give the glory to you. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Maintain your humble, contrite and repentant heart as God won’t reject you!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for music. Yes, music can be so amazing, no words necessary! It can lift your spirit as it opens your eyes and your heart. It can set your feet tapping and your arms moving. Thank you for music! And thank you for helping me prepare for the next 26 days where I hope to have my prayers for your daughter based on women in the Bible from A to Z. But for today, I thank you for this scripture to base today’s prayer:

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (Psalm 51:17)

Lord, I’m here. It’s me. I am anxious to begin another prayer for your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, I pray that you will continue walking with a humble and contrite heart. A gentle spirit is what God looks for and he will not reject you Lindsey. 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…)

Blessing: May You See God as you are pure in heart

Here is the sixth blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, I bless you and pray that you may see God as you are pure in heart.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my home – both house and family. Thank you for always being with us regardless of circumstances. And thank you for the blessing in the scripture where Jesus said:

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)

Lord, it’s me again. I am here to bless your daughter again. Lindsey, I pray that you may remain pure in heart all your days. In addition I pray that you be blessed and that you shall see God. 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: The Lord is Near, Be Anxious for Nothing for the Peace of God Guards Your Heart and Mind

Lindsey, the Lord is at hand. He is near and ever present, so you need not be anxious at all. May you never be anxious since the peace of God guards your heart and your mind through Christ Jesus.

Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome this new day with you. I thank you for the restful sleep over the night and thank you for being with me as I sleep. Thank you for being with me all day and night, for never leaving me. And thank you for the scripture to bless your daughter this day:

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-7)

Lord, here I am. I’m here to bless your daughter again today. But first I ask that you restore her health. Lord, she is a godly role model for the young women today so I ask that you keep her healthy and full of your joy. And now let me bless you Lindsey. May your gentle nature be obvious to everyone you meet. God is close to you. May those around you see this in your eyes. May your anxiety dissipate as you praise the Lord with songs and prayers of thanksgiving. May God’s peace rest in your heart and in your mind so that you may remain calm the entire day. May the Lord hear your requests today. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I bless you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: May Your Inner Man be Filled with the Fullness of Love, Faith and Understanding

Another special blessing for you today Lindsey! I ask that the Lord would strengthen your inner man (or shall we say inner woman) through his spirit. I ask that Christ would dwell in your heart and that you would be grounded in love. Finally, I ask that you would know the love of Christ and that your entire being would be filled with all the fullness of God.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for the godly friends you surround me with. Thank you for granting me more of your wisdom this day. Show me the way to go and give me the courage to walk it, and words when I need them. And especially thank you for this special scripture that is the basis for my blessing over your daughter today:

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

Lord, I am here to bless your daughter Lindsey again today. Lindsey, it is a joy to bless you today with another special blessing! I pray that from his unlimited resources the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth would empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. I pray that God’s love would keep you strong and that you would grow to understand how wide, how long, how high and how deep God’s love for you is. May you experience the love of Christ and be made complete with the fullness of life that comes from God. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: May you walk in God’s Ways Keeping All His Commands

Today I bless you Lindsey and remind you that the Lord will not leave you, will not abandon you, and will not forsake you. May you incline your heart unto him and walk in obedience in all his ways.

Heavenly Father, good morning. This morning I woke up refreshed and new and all is well. Thank you for being with me while I sleep. Thank you for being with me while I am awake! Thank you for showing me the way and then walking with me on that path. And thank you for the scripture that I am using as a basis for blessing your daughter Lindsey today:

The Lord our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. (1 Kings 8:57-58)

Lord, here I am. Hear me. Hear my blessing over you daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I bless you and remind you of something you already know (for Peter advised us to remind each other of things we know – see scripture below). God will never leave you. God is with you … right now! And right now I pray that you will incline your heart unto him and walk in his ways, knowing that he is right there walking with you. I bless you in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. All the glory is to God. We give you the glory Lord. Amen

BONUS SCRIPTURE (remind others of things they already know):

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. (2 Peter 1:12)
