You Are a Dear Child of God – A Child of Light!
Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my good health. Thank you for all those who watch over my health. And thank you for providing scriptures for my prayers for your daughter Lindsey each and every day especially today as I start another 40 days of praying for your daughter with special prayers!
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (Ephesians 5:1-8)
Lord, I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, you are a dearly loved daughter of God. And today’s scripture reminds you that as such, you need to walk in love! This is not always easy, so today I pray that the Lord would walk with you and fill you with his joy as your strength so you can walk together in love wherever you go! Just look where God is leading you and follow that path! Avoid all the things that you know are wrong and walk with integrity. Lord, I ask that you protect Lindsey from any deception that she may encounter. At those times remind her of your truth. Shine your light on her Lord, so that she can walk as a child of light. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. GLORY! I pray and ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Jesus is the light within you. Let it shine brightly everywhere you go!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for good friends. Thank you for the friends who are there with us year after year. And thank you as well for friends who are with us for just a season. Thank you for reminding us that it is Christ that is the light in us, and when others see a light in us, we can tell them the source is Jesus!
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (Ephesians 5:13-14)
Yes, this was said in Isaiah:
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. (Isaiah 60:1)
Lord, it’s me. Yep, I am here again as usual to lift Lindsey up to you. I am here on her behalf. Lord, I pray that you would be the light in Lindsey. Wake her up whenever busy-ness clouds her day. And then let your light shine through her Lord so that it is evident to those around her, let it be so evident that many ask her about it! Give her these opportunities to tell people that she is not the light, but that Jesus is the light within her. I ask that you give her the words then Lord. Show her the way and give her the strength and courage to walk it (with you right beside her the whole time!) And we will give the glory to you. The glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
You are a Child of God without blemish! Blameless and pure!
Heavenly Father, good morning! At night the sky was crystal clear and the stars were bright and twinkling. Thank you for setting the stars in the heavens for us to see. It is breath-taking! Hundreds that I can see… thousands with a little help … millions with a good telescope, but there are even way more than that. The immenseness of this paints a splendid picture of the God we praise today! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use as the basis for my prayer to kick off the next 40 days of prayers for the daughter you love!
Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; (Philippians 2:14-15)
Lord, what a privilege to be able to sit with you. What an honor. But here I am … sitting with you. You restored my breath. You cleared my mind. I am here on Lindsey’s behalf again Lord. Today I pray a prayer confirming that she is a child of God, that she is a daughter of God shining as a light in the world in the midst of the darkness which you refer to as crooked, perverse and twisted. Lord, I ask that you fill your daughter with your love and your light. Let her shine brightly before all she meets and let her do all things without grumbling, disputing, arguing or murmuring! Let only goodness spill out from her where ever she goes. And we will give you the glory. Yes, all the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen (more…)
(W) Walk (and Dance) in the Light
Today’s prayer seems to be an extra special one … a tiny group of us meets every weekday at a coffeeshop or at Wendy’s from 7-8am to read scriptures aloud around our table … and now and then we pause to share thoughts that we have regarding the scriptures. And today one of the people mentioned dancing to the Lord or dancing for the Lord … and I had to say … wow, that is part of my prayer I was just typing before we started our reading! And so I need to expand this prayer a bit and add a second scripture to it referencing how king David danced before the Lord!
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for a wonderful morning feeling fully refreshed. Thank you for the many things that I can eat and drink, the vast amount, all different. Thank you for showing us that unique can be good! Thank you for being my guide and lighting the path for me to walk… and for the scripture for the letter W for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
Lord, today it is even more a joy to be here with you than usual. The scripture for today’s prayer is so very applicable to your daughter you love … for she strives to walk in the light not only in her private life but also in public. But today I pray that you would show her how she also can dance in the light. Lord, I ask you to find ways for her to make dancing in the light part of her. Show her the way to do this Lord. Perhaps King David can be an example for her (see the ESV translation to help understand the Old English):
And it was told king David, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness. And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart. And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house. Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! And David said unto Michal, It was before the Lord, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Lord. And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour. Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death. (2 Samuel 6:12-22)
So let there be a celebration, let there be a party, let there be a dancing party. Lord, I ask that you sit with your daughter, that you walk with your daughter, that you DANCE and PLAY with your daughter in front of many crowds of people. Let the dance and the music be to you Lord. Let others know that we can celebrate with all our might before the Lord. Some of those around your daughter may not approve of this, however, but we know that you, Lord, DO approve, and so I pray that you will give your daughter the courage and strength to dance and play before you regardless of what others might say. And we will give all the glory to you. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
You are a royal priesthood to proclaim praises of the God who called you from darkness into his marvelous light
Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for the dexterity and quick coordination of my fingers as they type this prayer. My fingers seem to know exactly where to go to type the words to match the thoughts as they run through my mind without my needing to even look at them or at the keyboard. What a miracle this is. Perhaps it is similar to how your daughter can play the violin as if it were all part of her. While I can’t seem to understand how it all “works”, I can say thank you for it, as it points to your wonderful design when you created us. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer today for your daughter:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light (1 Peter 2:9)
Lord, it’s me again, coming to sit with you to rest a bit as you take me on this wild ride, from tears, to excitement, to royalty and prayer. Yesterdays scripture for your daughter was from royalty. Today’s is to royalty as you remind Lindsey that she can sing and play praises to you for she is called into your marvelous light. And so I ask that you open her eyes to see this marvelous light. Let it be her inspiration for her praises this day. Provide her with the opportunity to show praises of you. Yes, let all the glory be to you Lord. We give you the glory. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
(Y) Jesus’s Yoke is Easy and his Burden is Light
Heavenly Father, I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for the majestic sunrise. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness in that each sunrise can be different, some pink, some orange, some with wisps of clouds, others with a mist or a fog. Different from an island or from the bottom of a mountain. Different from within a dense forest or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Different in summer and in winter. Even near nonexistent near the north or south pole! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today that reminds us that Jesus promised that his yoke was easy:
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)
Lord, what an exciting time. Tomorrow I finish my first 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey with a prayer based on the letter Z. Today I am happy to pray for Lindsey, that you would remind her that your yoke is easy. It is not something to be avoided at all costs. Remind her that your burden is light – it is not a heavy burden. Let her see this with her own eyes and her own heart today. I ask that today she would find your yoke extremely easy and your burden very light. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
