You are not far from the kingdom of God!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for inquisitive minds. Thank you for inventive minds. Thank you for reasoning minds. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question. (Mark 12:29-34)

Lord, I’m here again to sit with you. And right now I wish to lift up Lindsey, your daughter who loves you with all her heart, soul and strength. And so I ask that you show her that she is not far from the kingdom of God today. Show her how close she is to your Kingdom Lord. Give her a word or a vision. Let this knowledge help her to walk closer to you each day. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

May others see much love, joy, peace, patience and faith in you

Good morning Heavenly Father. I welcome another day with you. A new day with you. A day anew with you! And I thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

Lord, I’m here as usual to pray for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Today I ask that you fill her with your Spirit. Fill her to overflowing so that it can be seen in her by her actions. I ask that you be her guide, her joy and her strength. Lindsey, with the power of the Spirit you can have much fruit. People are watching, so I pray that you will be living in a way that shows much fruit. I pray that you will walk in love, spread much peace and joy, be patient and longsuffering. I pray that your gentleness, meekness and goodness will be evident to those around you. There is no law against these things, so strive for them always! And we will give the glory to God. Glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Jesus Loves You. He Died for You. He Rose and So Now May Others See Jesus in Your Eyes

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for shoes (and socks). Thank you for protecting my feet everywhere I walk. Thank you for walking with me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin this days prayer for your daughter you love. And the scripture for this prayer refers to your love for her. Lindsey, Jesus loves you. He gave himself for you by being whipped and crucified. He loves you so much that he said it was like a joy to do this for you*. But though he did die for you, he also rose again. Not only that, but as you live by faith in Jesus he is living in you! So that is the reason that I can pray that you may live your life in a way that others can see Jesus in your eyes.  And why not!? He is living in you after all! So let today be a special day where Jesus makes himself evident within you. 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

* Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

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]

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…)

How do you know that you love Jesus?

I welcome another new day with you Heavenly Father. Thank you getting me up this morning. Thank you for the stars in the sky while I walk to catch my bus just before the rising of the sun. And thank you for your scripture that gives us a way to see if we love you:

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (John 14:21)

Lord, I am here as usual to begin another prayer for another day. I am here on behalf of Lindsey who loves you. Yes, Lindsey, you can tell that you love Jesus if you acknowledge God’s commandments AND actually keep them. You can tell that you love God when you obey his commandments. Lord, I ask that you notice how Lindsey keeps your commandments. Show her how much you love her Lord, for she loves you too. Manifest yourself to her Lord. Reveal yourself to her today. Let her know that you are near to her and that you love her dearly. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Continue loving God by keeping his commandments and he will lavish his love on you!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for watching over me so diligently. And thank you for the scripture to use in my prayer for your daughter Lindsey this day:

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:6)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you with her whole heart. Lindsey, I pray that you will always remember that keeping God’s commandments is not a suggestion. Obeying his commands is not just a good idea. God tells us that if we love him that we must keep his commandments. But in the same breath God also said that then he would lavish his unfailing love on us, that he would show mercy unto us. Lord I ask that you show mercy to Lindsey. I ask that you lavish your unfailing love on her. Lord, I ask that intertwining her obedience to your love and mercy would take root in your daughter. Let her see how they are interconnected and tied together. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name 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…)

Who in your tour group can serve the others the most? You can win this one Lindsey!

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for helping me to keep a grateful heart. Thank you for reminding us how important it is to be thankful. And thank you for the scripture to use for your daughter Lindsey:

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Galatians 5:13-14)

This was said in Leviticus:

18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:18)

Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to begin a new days prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, you were called to freedom, called to liberty. I pray that you will each day find ways to use your freedom to serve others. I pray that your mind would always be forgiving and your heart would always be loving, even to those who you feel do not deserve it. I pray that you would find ways to compete with those on your tours to see who can serve the others the most. 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 (more…)
