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…)

Stay true and don’t let your love grow cold

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another new day… a day anew with you. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:11-15)

Yes, Daniel did say this:

10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. (Daniel 12:10-11)

Lord, here I am. I’m here to begin a new prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray this for us both. It is something I pray for myself often. I pray that God would keep our minds clear so that we can see through any deception. I pray that we not be deceived because by definition when deceived we don’t realize it! That is a scary place and I pray for God to guide us away from it. But today’s scripture also warns us to love much, because as the iniquity and lawlessness increases around us, the love in us can so easily be quenched or snuffed out. So, I pray that God would guard our hearts with his love. I pray that he would fill us with his love and enable us to show this love to those around us regardless of the circumstances. And we in turn will glorify God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Don’t just love those who love you… love those who do not love you!

Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for a new day with you. Thank you for the new day from you as you hold all things together. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:46-48)

Lord, I am here again. Here to sit with you on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, today the scripture for the prayer is all about love. However, it focuses not on reminding you to love others, but on who it is that you are choosing to love. And that is hard. And so Lord, I ask that you be the strength for Lindsey today. I ask that you be her guide. Help her to be loving even to those who appear to be against her. For what reward is there in loving only the people who are so fondly loving you? Perhaps this is another big prayer today, since it appears that there are literally thousands who are loudly and publicly proclaiming how much they love you Lindsey (and likewise there are the detractors as well).  And so my big prayer is that the Lord would enlarge your heart and keep it filled with his joy so that you could love not only those who say they love you, but also those who don’t. I pray that the Lord would guard your heart, that he would keep it from breaking and at the same time add more love to it right then. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this big prayer in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Give … and it then will be given to you in the same measure!

Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for cereal. Thank you for the many kinds. Thank you that we can eat cereal any time day or night. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for Lindsey (who also really really likes cereal):

[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. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:35-38)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin another day’s prayer for  your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray another scripture over you regarding giving. This time Jesus is encouraging us to be generous, for in the same measure that we are generous, that same measure will be used when he is gracious to us. So I pray that God would keep your heart soft.  I pray that God would fill you so full of joy that you can only think about how to respond to him. I pray that being generous would continue to be simply a way of life for you.  And I pray that those around you would see this in you as you are a role model for them. And we will give all the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

God loves you and calls you his daughter!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome this new day with you. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer as I start another 40 days of prayers by acknowledging how scripture says that she is a child of God, a daughter of God:

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (1 John 3:1)

Lord, I’m here again to lift up your daughter Lindsey. I ask that you let her feel your presence and confirm that she is indeed A DAUGHTER OF GOD. You have bestowed your love upon her. Let her feel that love from you today. Let that truth resonate in her this day Lord. And all the glory goes to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(G) Gomer – Loved even when undeserving of love

Lindsey, today’s scripture regarding Gomer is a hard one for me. But it seems that perhaps it is pointing out to us how God has purchased us out of slavery with the blood of his only Son Jesus. Gomer was an example of a woman who was loved even when she did not deserve to be loved, and she was purchased back. Likewise there were name changes that refer back to her two children – “not loved” was shown love and “not my people” became God’s people. I pray that you will find ways to remind people that God loves them.

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for all the many “God co-incidences” that you have let me be part of! And thank you for the scripture around Gomer, the woman for the letter G:

Then said the Lord unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the Lord toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine. So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley: (Hosea 3:1-2)

Lord, I’m here again. The scripture is intriguing so I ask your help in this prayer. I ask that you give me the words! Lindsey, today I am praying that you would watch for ways that you can show those around you how God loves them. I pray that they not only would see Jesus in you, but that they also would experience God’s love for them, regardless of how bad their past has been. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Blessing: May Your Inner Man be Filled with the Fullness of Love, Faith and Understanding

Another special blessing for you today Lindsey! I ask that the Lord would strengthen your inner man (or shall we say inner woman) through his spirit. I ask that Christ would dwell in your heart and that you would be grounded in love. Finally, I ask that you would know the love of Christ and that your entire being would be filled with all the fullness of God.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for the godly friends you surround me with. Thank you for granting me more of your wisdom this day. Show me the way to go and give me the courage to walk it, and words when I need them. And especially thank you for this special scripture that is the basis for my blessing over your daughter today:

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

Lord, I am here to bless your daughter Lindsey again today. Lindsey, it is a joy to bless you today with another special blessing! I pray that from his unlimited resources the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth would empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. I pray that God’s love would keep you strong and that you would grow to understand how wide, how long, how high and how deep God’s love for you is. May you experience the love of Christ and be made complete with the fullness of life that comes from God. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: May God Love you and Bless You and Your Land

May the Lord love you and bless you this day Lindsey. May he bless you, your family and your land.

Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome a new day with you Lord. I praise you for this day in the midst of your creation where evidence of you is everywhere. Thank you for being here in our midst! And thank you for the scripture that contains the blessing for your daughter this day:

Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. (Deuteronomy 7:12-13)

Lord, I am happy to come and sit with you today to bless your daughter you love yet again. Lindsey, I bless you today and pray that the Lord would love you and that you would feel his love. May he bless you and your family and your land. And we will give all the glory to him. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Wondrously show your steadfast love to Lindsey

Heavenly Father, thank you for hearing my prayers and for answering me. I know that you listen when I pray. Thank you for your love. And thank you for the scripture to frame today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. (Psalm 17:6-7)

Lord, it is wonderful to come before you today on behalf of the daughter you love. I am calling upon you Lord. Hear my prayer for Lindsey. I ask that you reveal your wonderful love to her today. Show her some of the wonders of your great love this day. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

(R) God Rejoices

Heavenly Father – Yay! From Q for quiet to R for rejoicing. Thank you for revealing bits of yourself to us in your Word! It seems Paul understood this when writing to the Philippians when he told them to rejoice always. We should rejoice because you rejoice! Thank you for giving us so many ways to rejoice. With singing, with dance, with laughter. Thank you for the scripture to use in my prayer this day:

The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

Lord, I come here before you with joy and with singing.  I come here to joyfully lift up your daughter you love, to lift up Lindsey, your daughter as you sing joyfully over her. And I pray that she, in turn, will rejoice with you today. Let her rest in your love as you calm all her fears.  You are mighty, Lord, but you are singing and rejoicing as well.  Let Lindsey feel your delight in her today. Let her be inspired by your joy and your singing.  Rather than put this inspiration into words, let her put it to music. Let her music resound through the room and into the heavens. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
