Gain the Whole World but Lose Your Soul? Choose Wisely!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the air we breathe. Thank you for how refreshing a breath of fresh air can be. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus speaking] And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (Mark 8:34-38)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here again as usual. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, this scripture is interesting how Jesus clearly lets us know that if we try to get ahead in this world while ignoring him, that he in turn will be ashamed of us when he comes again. So I pray that as you become more and more popular in the eyes of the world, that you will continue to give the credit and the glory to God. I pray that any time you face a choice of advancing in this world by ignoring Jesus that you will always make a good choice. I pray for extra wisdom for you Lindsey. I pray that you will always have good people around you to advise you when the world gets so very tempting. I pray that you would never be ashamed to tell people that you follow Jesus and center you life around him. And together we can give the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Do not grieve. Wipe away the tears. Let joy be seen in your eyes again.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for creating us and for saving us through Jesus. Thank you for giving us this scripture regarding your promise of eternal life for those who leave this world to be with you:

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)

and

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. (2 Corinthians 4:13-14)

Lord, I am here. I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey, who has lost a very dear friend. I ask that you be with her and be her comforter. Lindsey, just as Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, I write my prayer for you to remind you of things you already know, for you are not ignorant concerning how everlasting life is waiting for each of us. You read God’s Word each day, so you are not uninformed about those who sleep in death.

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)

Lindsey, today I remind you of the faith and the hope that you already have. So, don’t be concerned about your good friend Gavi. Paul reminds you to not grieve for him. For we know he has eternal life as his hope is fulfilled. So, be comforted. I pray that once again God would fill you with his joy so that you could celebrate how Jesus has brought Gavi to him. I pray that the joy of the Lord could be seen in your eyes again. And in this we 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…)

Qualified? YES! With Integrity!

Note: “savour” can also be translated as “fragrance” and “aroma” – refer to the original Greek words (yes KJV validly translates two different words as “savour”, but both are slightly different words)

* Strong word G3744 ( ὀσμή ) – a smell, aroma, fragrance – From ozo; fragrance (literally or figuratively) — odour, savour.

** Strong word G2175 ( εὐωδία ) – a sweet smell, fragrance – From a compound of eu and a derivative of ozo; good-scentedness, i.e. Fragrance — sweet savour (smell, -smelling).

Hello Heavenly Father. What a world! What a wonderful world you created for us. A world full of wonders, full of amazing things. Birds that fly backwards, squirrels that glide smoothly through the air, spiders that  seem to float across to where they want to go. Thank you for the many unique parts of your complex creation. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey, that speaks of having a character that is like a sweet savor** (fragrance or aroma):

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour* of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour** of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour* of death unto death; and to the other the savour* of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)

Lord, I’m here to pray for your daughter again today. Lindsey, I am one of those who while shopping look for “fragrance free” products. Fragrances bother my eyes and even affect my breathing, even if it is just a faint fragrance. So I totally understand the power of a fragrance. The fragrance is noticeable even when I am not looking for it so to speak. When someone with perfume is nearby, the fragrance just seems to be all around me when I am near them. Others may find sweet smells pleasant but still are affected by “bad” smells (a stench). What scripture seems to be saying is that we can live our lives so that we are sweetly noticeable wherever we go. And so that is my prayer for you today Lindsey. I pray that you would continue to live your life with integrity, and that would be sufficient.  I pray that your character and sincerity would have the same effect as a sweet aroma, and that would qualify you to not corrupt the Word of God, but to speak it in truth, in Christ. And the glory all is to God. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

You are NOT alone! But even Elijah at times felt alone (but wasn’t!)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for a new day with you. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey.

God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. (Romans 11:2-4)

Yes, Elijah did say this to God:

And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. (1 Kings 19:9-10)

And God did reply to him:

18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. (1 Kings 19:18)

Lord, I’m here again. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today I remind you that you are not rejected, as Paul said in today’s scripture. I also remind you that you are not alone, just as Paul quoted the story of Elijah in the book of Kings. Elijah thought he was alone. But God spoke to him and clearly let him know that he was by no means alone! I pray this over you today Lindsey. If you ever feel alone, call to mind this story of how even one of the greatest prophets felt totally alone and depressed. I pray that God will speak clearly to you in those times just as he did for Elijah. 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…)

You can have an Abundant Life!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for teeth. Thank you for my good chewing teeth. Thank you for how well teeth work! And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey for today’s prayer:

[Jesus said:] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:9-10)

Lord, I’m here. It’s me. I am ready to lift up your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that the Lord would give you an abundant life, just as he promised. All you need to do is open the door to Jesus and enter in.  You can come and go in peace. I pray that each day you would look for that door that is Jesus and that each day Jesus would in turn give you a more abundant life. And we will give all the glory to him. The glory all goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: May you receive the Crown of Life

Lindsey, today I bless you for enduring temptation and the trials of life. And since you love the Lord, may you receive the crown of life as the Lord has promised you.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for waking me this morning. Thank you for being my provider and protector. Thank you for being my guide and lighting a path for me. Thank you for telling me to not be afraid and for never leaving me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s blessing for Lindsey:

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. (James 1:12)

Lord, yep, it’s me. I’m here on behalf of the daughter who loves you. I am here to bless her this day! Yes! Lindsey, today I bless you because you remain steadfast during the trials of life. I pray that you will feel God’s approval of your life and I bless you with the crown of life which the Lord promised to you because you love him. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(I) You are the Image of God

Heavenly Father, thank you for the clean fresh air this morning. Thank you for the warm clothes and jacket so I can go out into the brisk morning air where I can exhale and a bit of a mist appears coming out of my mouth. Thank you for the phrase “you can see your breath”… interesting … it was in the beginning of Genesis that we read how you created men and women in your image:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27)

And then just a few paragraphs later we read about this creation in another very interesting way … which relates to how I can “see my breath” … for scriptures say that your breath was life … that you breathed life into man:

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)

Lord, here I am. Here I am as usual. Here I am as I am each day to sit with you and to lift up your daughter Lindsey in prayer. And today you gave me two scriptures to use for my prayer! And so I pray them both over your daughter and I ask that you find ways to remind her that you created her in your image and that you breathed life into her. Lord, I ask that you breathe a fresh blast of life into her this day. Totally refresh her with new life, new energy, new vigor. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(T) Jesus is the Truth

Heavenly Father, thank you for keeping me safe and secure. Thank you for reminding me of the truth when presented by lies of the world. Thank you for blessing me with discernment to know when something spoken is truth or a lie. And thank you for the scripture for my prayer referencing the letter T as I pray again for your daughter Lindsey:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Lord, here I am again, as usual, ready to pray for your daughter Lindsey who loves you so much. I ask that you increase her discernment today. That you make it easier for her to distinguish between what is truth and what is NOT! Open her eyes to the truth, open her mind to the truth, open her heart to your truth. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, the way, the truth and the life. Amen. (more…)

(B) Jesus is The Bread of Life

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for another day praising you in my prayers for your daughter Lindsey. Thank you for letting us see the many aspects of God through your Word. And today is one for our second letter, B. Thank you for this scripture for today’s prayer:

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. (John 6:35)

Lord, I am so happy to be able to praise you in prayer again this day.  And today I thank you for being the bread of life for your daughter Lindsey. When she comes to you this day, let her not be hungry.  And as she believes in you today, let her not thirst.  Fill her to the brim Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory we give to you Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, the Bread of Life! Amen (more…)
