God’s Banner Over You is Love

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taking care of my family. Thank you for reminding me each year that I have one foot in heaven!* And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. (Song of Solomon 2:4)

Lord, I am here on behalf of Lindsey again. I ask that you find ways today to illustrate to her how you have placed your banner of love over her. I ask that you show this to her in a way that means something to her. I ask that you reveal more about your banner of love to her this day. And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours. Glory! I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

* For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3)
* So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (Mark 16:19)

[If my life is hid with Christ and he is in heaven, then it seems natural to consider that I have one foot in heaven already]

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…)

Humble yourself Lindsey – that is the key to greatness!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the house that I am so happy to have. Thank you for my home. Thank you for being my provider Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer this day for Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here to pray for your daughter again. Lindsey, today I pray that you would always remember the key to greatness according to Jesus. I pray that the Lord would give you ways to remember this. I pray that those around you would also help you to remember this truth. Stay humble. Stay yourself. Stay your humble self! And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Be just like a little child if you want to enter the kingdom of heaven

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another wonderful day. Thank you for the wonderful weather. Thank you for letting me sense your presence all around me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 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 18:2-3)

Lord, I’m here as usual on behalf of your daughter you love, to pray for something that she seems to have already! Lindsey, it seems like you have embraced today’s scripture wholeheartedly. You have such a childlike joy just bursting out from within you. And today I thank the Lord that you indeed are ready to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And I pray that you would continue holding fast unto this quality. I ask that the Lord would remind you now and then that becoming like a little child is a GOOD THING! Never be ashamed of it. 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

[tomorrow will be the very next verse] (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)

This is the ninth and final blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, you are BLESSED when people say rude things about you regarding how you acknowledge Jesus in public and in conjunction with your music and your public postings. In those cases may you REJOICE for your reward is in heaven.

Hello Heavenly Father. I welcome this new day with you. I am looking at the clouds. They are amazing. And they are merely a tiny tiny piece of the creation you created just for us! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture where Jesus said:

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sakeRejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)

Lord, I am here again to bless your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today’s blessing is special for your situation in life, with so many people looking at you and what you say and do. And the title for today’s prayer of blessing over you sums it up nicely! Lindsey you are blessed when people say rude things about you and how you acknowledge God and Jesus in public. In addition to the blessing I also pray that God would continue to give you the strength each and every time you hear or read what someone says against you and your beliefs. God delights in you Lindsey! I pray this blessing over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: The Kingdom of Heaven is Yours when you are persecuted for being righteous

This is the eighth blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, I pray that you continue to be righteous each day, no matter what the cost, for then the kingdom of heaven is yours!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the miracle of life. Today I am noticing my teeth. Thank you for creating teeth that can bite and chew for a hundred years and they still are capable of biting off a good piece of a barbecued rib! Thank you for the many other miracles we often overlook. And thank you for giving us your word and for the many people who painstakingly copied it and preserved it. And thank you for those who translated it into a language that I can understand, including the scripture where Jesus said:

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:10)

Lord, I am here again. I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. I am here to bless her today. Yes, Lindsey, today I bless you in the name of Christ Jesus and pray that you continue to be righteous no matter what the cost. There are many watching you and imitating your righteousness. Yet there are many others who won’t hesitate to speak out against you and your beliefs. Don’t be discouraged Lindsey for yours is the kingdom of heaven. 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…)

Rejoice for your name is written in heaven

Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for letting me see bits of your beauty and glory today as it is my own prayer each day that you guide me and show me more bits of your beauty and glory. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (Luke 10:20)

Lord, it is wonderful that you asked me to pray each day for your daughter Lindsey. And so it is with joy that I come before you now on her behalf. Today I ask that you find a way to confirm to her that her name is written in heaven and for this she can rejoice. Let her celebrate this today Lord. And we will give you all the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
