Discouraged? NOT! Praying? YES!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for waking me this morning and being with me this day. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus speaking] And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; (Luke 18:1)

Lord, it’s me. It’s me again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. I pray that you fill her with your joy Lord. Let it be her strength so she need to be weary and feel faint. Lord let discouragement be far from her. Surround her with those who will encourage her and keep on on the path you set before her. And most importantly is prayer. Lindsey, remember to pray. Remember to pray often. Actually, Jesus asked you to be always praying! Let the people who are watching you day after day notice that not only are you smiling and joyful as well as talented, but that you also are prayerful. Let some of your prayers be while others are watching. I pray that you would be a good role model in prayer as well as in how to live. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Get Up and Pray!

Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for keeping my teeth in good shape. Thank you for how teeth are so essential to eating, which in turn is essential for life. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus speaking] And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. (Luke 22:46)

Lord, I’m here again as usual. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray that you will do all that you can to avoid falling into temptation. Jesus seems to be saying that at times it is good to wake up even while very sleepy.  He suggests waking up to pray! So praying is one way to avoid temptation. Thus I pray for you now Lindsey. I pray that you would not enter into temptation. Draw a line that you will not cross. Maintain your integrity. Many are watching! You are their role model even if you don’t know them. Continue to remind them that you read scriptures daily … that you pray every day. And together we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Come to Jesus. He will not Reject You nor Cast You Out.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for this new day. Thank you for promising that I can start this day new, anew with you. Thank you for watching over me while I slept. And thank you for your scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said] All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37)

Lord, I am here again. I am here as usual. I am here to begin another daily prayer for your daughter who loves you and comes to you. I am here on behalf of Lindsey. Today, I pray a promise over you Lindsey. Today I pray a promise that Jesus made. He sees you coming to him. He sees you acknowledging him before the multitudes. He sees you calling for him by name. And he will not cast you out. He will not turn you away. He will not reject you nor send you away. So you can feel secure. You need not worry nor be anxious. Just come to Jesus each day. And we will give the glory to him. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

What do you love? The praise of men? The praise of God? Choose!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the ground under my feet. Thank you for solid ground below me and thank you for your Word which gives me solid ground as I walk with you on the path you set before me. And thank you for this scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. (John 12:42-43)

Lord, I’m here again, ready to lift up Lindsey to you, for she does indeed believe in you as the Christ and Messiah. Lindsey, today’s scripture talks about how many leaders truly believed in Jesus, but would not say so openly because they did not want to be expelled from the synagogue. And this warning seems to be for us today as well. Are we yearning for the praise from men more than from God? This scripture seems to tell us to act on what we believe is true, regardless of the consequences set on us by men. Lindsey, around the world people are killed for saying aloud that they believe in Jesus. Elsewhere, as in this scripture, people are kicked out of their temple for publicly acknowledging Jesus as their lord. And here in our country we see more and more people not willing to tell others that they believe in Jesus as the Messiah because they would lose the praise of the people around them, which they value more than praise from God. And so I pray this over you not Lindsey. I pray that you would have the courage to act on your belief in Jesus, regardless of the consequences. I pray that you would strive to receive praise from your God rather than simply praise and cheers from your fans. I pray that God would find ways to let you know when HE is praising you! And we will give him the glory. The glory is all his. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Consider the great joy in knowing that Jesus has risen

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for community. Thank you for how the staff in restaurants can be such a good example of how to serve others. Thank you for that same serving attitude that I see around me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. (Matthew 28:7-8)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey. Lindsey, today’s scripture paints an interesting picture of joy… the joy of realizing that Jesus rose from the dead! I pray that you would find more of this joy today as you consider something you already know a bit more carefully. Joy is something we want to share. So, I pray that you will have the opportunity today to share your great joy that Jesus is risen with other disciples around you. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Each week take a day to rest and honor God as you delight yourself in the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the food I eat. Thank you for what I have to drink. Thank you for sustaining me with your word and with provisions – both! And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 58:13-14)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lord, today I pray a big prayer for her. She is in the spotlight. Wherever she goes her fans adore her and elevate her. In the midst of this unending praise of her ability and talent she may often feel that she can do whatever she pleases. Lindsey, today’s scripture reminds you to refrain from selfish pursuits. Isaiah was asking the people to remember the sabbath the way that God told them to! Centuries later, Jesus took this even further when he told us that the sabbath was made for us!

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: (Mark 2:27)

And so, Lindsey, I pray that you always will be able to take a day of rest.  That rest was designed for you. Rest in the Lord. And may this time of rest invigorate you and restore your energy. May you find JOY in your relationship with the Lord and may he grant you great prosperity. May you delight yourself in the Lord and honor him above all things. And together we can glory God. Let us give the glory to him. I pray this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Just do it!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for walking. Yes, thank you for the chance to walk from my house to the bus stop and later from the bus stop to the coffee shop. Thank you for legs and feet that can walk so easily … reminding me how I also am walking with you throughout the day no matter where I am. And thank you for scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said] Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. (John 15:14)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here as usual to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, Jesus would like you to be his friend and he offered you an open invitation. All you have to do is whatever he commands you. So, Lord, I ask that you speak clearly to Lindsey this day. I ask that you clear the static from her mind so she can hear you easily. Give her the courage to actually walk the way that you show her. Give her words when she needs them. Lindsey, listen carefully to hear Jesus speaking to you today, and take him up on his offer to be his friend. Whatever he asks, just do it! And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Keep God’s commandments and his joy will fill you!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another new day with you. Another day anew. Another day starting fresh – no need to start where I left off last night for you tell me to just start each day anew. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey which is one of the two scriptures I have as a foundation for my collection of scriptures that show how JOY and OBEDIENCE are interconnected and intertwined:

[Jesus said] If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. (John 15:10-11)

Lord, I’m here again. Seems like so much to do. Help me keep right priorities. And right now I am ready to pray for your daughter Lindsey. She strives each day to walk with you and to keep your commandments, so I pray that you would speak to her and shower her with your joy so that she is filled to overflowing with JOY. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Do Good… your reward will be great… you will be a child of the Most High God

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for good friends. Thank you for the way friends can help each other and how it just seems natural, just the way it should be. And thank you for another day to remember how Lindsey is your daughter … a daughter of God as I begin 40 days of prayers based on commands and rewards – on obedience and joy!

[Jesus said] But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. (Luke 6:35)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter, who strives to do what is good each and every day. Lord, I ask that you continue to show her your favor, which is a great reward, for we know that you are a gracious God. Lindsey, I pray that you will always find ways to love those who do not love you. I pray that at times you will be able to lend to people expecting nothing in return. And Lord, I pray that you would remind Lindsey how she is a daughter of the Most High, a daughter of God. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Seven Days Without God’s Word Makes One Weak :)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for persistent vision which is important to how we see things. Thank you for peripheral vision which lets us notice things we aren’t even looking at. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter and the chance to use word play for the title of this prayer:

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

Jesus was referring back to the book of Deuteronomy:

And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. (Deuteronomy 8:3)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. She has set a goal to read your Word each and every day, so Lord, I ask that you make her strong, not weak. Lindsey, I also pray that you will also strive to remain humble in the midst of seemingly unceasing flattery from fans, because the glory belongs with God, your generous God who gifted you with so many talents and skills. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
