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 offers you rest!
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for soap. Thank you for the means to clean ourselves and our clothes. Thank you for the example of how we can feel more refreshed after we are washed. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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 11:28-30)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I came to rest. I need your rest. It is one thing that I ask for quite often. And I now am asking for your rest for Lindsey. She seems to be in the spotlight one way or another constantly. She has so much to plan, so much to remember, so much to actually DO! I ask that you continue to surround her with people who can help her stay refreshed… refreshed in you. I ask that you nudge her to pause now and then to just sit with you. And then I ask that you let her feel your rest come upon her. And we will give you the glory. The glory is yours. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Blessing: You Shall Inherit the Earth if you are meek
Today is the third blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, I bless you as you strive to remain meek for then you will inherit the earth.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for language. Thank you for our minds to use language to communicate. Thank you for those who understand more than one language and are able to translate from one to another for us. And thank you for the basis of today’s blessing for your daughter based on the scripture where Jesus said:
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)
Also … we remember that Jesus himself was meek (also see the definition below):
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. (Matthew 11:29)
Lord, it’s me again. I am here before you again. As usual, every day, I come before you on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who loves you. And today I am here to bless her. Lindsey, I bless you as you strive to remain meek, just as Jesus was, for then you will inherit the earth! I pray that you will have all the qualities of meekness. I pray that you will remain mild of temper, soft, gentle and not easily provoked. I pray that you will remain humble and not proud. I pray all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings who we give all the glory! Amen
