With People Watching, Your Actions Speak Loudly!

Heavenly Father, thank you for another day amidst your blessings and your glory. Thank you for blessings that don’t seem like blessings to us at the moment. Thank you for reminding me to not be concerned when I forget something (like the third sentence of this prayer) but DO be concerned with hardening my heart. Thank you for speaking to us, for holding us close, for never leaving us. Thank you for the godly people you had intersect with me on my journey. Thank you for your loving daughter whom I lift up to you this day in prayer with the scriptures you gave me:

First, an overview of how David was righteous always, except in the case of Bathsheba and Uriah the Hittite:

Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. (1 Kings 15:5)

But being righteous “most of the time” was not what God wants, as seen by how Nathan the prophet spoke to David in reference to his adulterous relations with Bathsheba and the killing of Uriah:

And the Lord sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him,

There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds: But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.

And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die: And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things. Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.

Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.

And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord.

And Nathan said unto David, The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. (2 Samuel 12: 1-14)

Define blasphemy: The act of reviling, ridiculing, or being disrespectful or irreverent of, by words or conduct, God, religion, a religious doctrine, a religious icon, or anything considered sacred.

Lord, I’m here to begin a new prayer for your daughter Lindsey, who loves you very much. Lindsey, this is a difficult scripture to pray for you, but it seems like it is the one God gave me for this day. This scripture refers to prophet Nathan telling David that what he had done was bad, very bad! However, the very last sentence speaks of how his actions, while bad in themselves, were even worse because the others nations had watched what he had done and now, because of it, were ridiculing and reviling his God. And so I pray for you now Lindsey. God has gifted you with great talent and skill. He also has showered you with his favor day after day after day. I pray that in addition to all the talent, skill and favor that the Lord would grant you great wisdom and discernment so that you can always be a shining light to the world and never give anyone cause to revile or ridicule our God because of something you do. If even David, the man after God’s own heart can do such things, it seems that none of us can consider ourselves exempt from possibly behaving in an equally bad manner. I pray that God would protect you from the evil one who wants to destroy you. I pray that God would always surround you with godly people who will help you stay on solid ground. I pray that all you do will bring glory to God, for the glory all goes to him. All the glory is to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen

Desire a Good Name and Good Reputation More Than Great Wealth

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for hands and fingers that work so well. Thank you for my knees and my feet that I can get around so easily. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1)

Lord, I’m here again as usual. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you more than silver and gold. Lindsey, today I pray that you review your life again. Watch that your desire is to maintain your good name and good reputation rather than accumulate wealth and riches. This scripture indicates that it is a choice that is before you. I pray that God would help you make the better choice. Follow his way and watch your reputation soar. And the glory goes to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Seek after the Lord

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for dexterous hands and fingers. Thank you for the ability to write and to type. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer:

15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world. (Acts 15:15-18)

It was written by the prophet Amos:

11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this. (Amos 9:11-12)

Lord, I’m here again. I am ready to lift Lindsey up to you. She seeks after you every day, so today I ask that you let her find you again. Let her find you this day. Let her hear your voice today. I ask that you walk with her and let her hear what you have to say to her for this day. Then I ask that you give her the courage to walk the path you show her. And together we will glorify you Lord. The glory is all yours. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Sing praises to God!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. What a good day. What a happy day. As some might say, “Oh, Happy Day!” Thank you for another day to praise and thank you. Thank you for another day for our hearts to sing to your name, just as it says in the scriptures for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. (Romans 15:8-9)

Consider what is written in 2 Samuel:

50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. (2 Samuel 22:50)

And also what is written in the psalms … from Psalm 18 (MY psalm … see: mypsalm18.com/ ):

49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. (Psalm 18:49)

Lord, it’s just me sitting here before you. I’m just enjoying time to just SIT! Just sitting with you is a joy. But now I also want to say “Look at Lindsey! Look at your daughter! She loves you, thanks you and sings to you!” Lindsey, God is indeed looking at you… and smiling in delight. He is proud of his daughter as she runs and sings and dances just for him. And so today I pray that God would let you actually see how proud he is of you Lindsey. I pray that God would let you feel his smiling presence there by your side. I pray that God would let you sense his presence as he delights in his daughter whom he loves dearly. And we will 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…)

Know Jesus and do the will of the Father… only then ask in his name!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for steam. Thank you for mist. Thank you for wispy clouds. Thank you for showing us how at times there can be something covering our field of vision just a bit and perhaps we might not even notice it.  A slight mist or slight fog can alter how the world looks, make it a bit more ominous. Help us to not let the powers of darkness cloud our vision of your world, of your creation, of you … as the scripture for today’s prayer abruptly warns us:

[Jesus said:] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23)

Lord, it’s me again – as usual. Yep, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am praying for you today Lindsey. I am praying a big prayer for you today. I pray that you will truly know Jesus. I pray that you both can sit and talk today, have a real heart to heart talk. I pray that you will clearly see what God’s will for you and your life is. And I pray that God grant you all the courage you may need to walk in his will. I ask that God remove any fear or lingering doubts that cloud your mind. And I ask that he will always give you the words wherever you go! And we will glorify him. The glory all is his. Glory to God! I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings, Savior and Lord, the Anointed One who calms my storms. Amen (more…)

No one can rob you of your joy! Ask! Be an “asker” in the name of Jesus!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for peace of mind as I start this new day. Thank you for reminding me that I just need to keep my focus on Jesus and not be distracted by what I see to the left and to the right of me. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: (John 16:21-26)

Lord, here I am! I am ready to start today’s prayer for your daughter you love! Lindsey, today I pray that your heart is rejoicing. I pray that you recognize and realize that no one can rob you of this joy. And right now I pray that you realize that Jesus is telling you to ASK … to ASK … and to ASK IN HIS NAME! And so I pray that you can be an asker this day (yeah, I just made up that word).  I pray that you can be someone who asks … who is not afraid to ask in the name of Christ Jesus.  And I pray that God will answer… and that you will hear his answer clearly. And we both can give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray and ask this all IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS, KING OF KINGS! Amen (more…)

Ask in Jesus’s name so the Father may be glorified

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the morning sunlight and gentle breeze. Thank you for the wisps of clouds. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

[Jesus said:] And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14)

Lord, I’m here again to begin another prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray that the Father may be glorified as I ask in the name of Christ Jesus for wisdom and discernment for you. I ask that he grant you extended wisdom and discernment over and above of all that you already have. I ask that he shine a light on all that you should see and shield you from all that is not for you. I ask that you, in turn, would be a light to others and that they could see Jesus in you wherever you go. And the glory is all his! I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

When asking, ask in the name of Jesus!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for your continued protection. Thank you for watching over my family. And thank you for the scripture that reminds us that we can indeed pray and ask in the name of Jesus:

[Jesus said:] Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to sit with you. I ask for your rest. I ask for both myself and for Lindsey, your daughter. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, just as you instructed me to. And the glory is all yours. All the glory is to God. Amen (more…)

During your daily reading of the Bible Jesus is there in your midst!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my good health. Thank you for showing me how to maintain a thankful heart. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer this day for Lindsey, your daughter:

[Jesus said:] For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20)

Lord, I’m here again to lift up Lindsey to you. She has committed to reading your word with others every day this year. I ask that each time she gets together with someone to read your word, that you would make your presence known to them. Let them be aware of you right there with them. Let them know that you are there among them. Let them sense that you are there in their midst. And all the glory goes to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I ask all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
