May God give you wisdom, discretion and understanding

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for watching over me during the night. Thank you for giving me a restful sleep. Thank you for waking me up this morning. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Only the Lord give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God. Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the Lord charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed. (1 Chronicles 22:12-13)

Lord, here I am again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey. She loves you Lord. You have placed her in the eyes of the world so I ask that you also grant her a double portion of wisdom, discretion and understanding. Help her to notice when she starts to wander a bit off of the path you set before her. Since so many people are watching her, I ask that you help her to know when things are appropriate and when they are not. And I ask that you give her understanding so that she may understand all that is going on around her. And we will give you the glory Lord. The glory is all yours. GLORY! I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Be a Do-er not just a Hear-er

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the interesting night sky as we just witnessed an eclipse of the moon. Thank you for the clear night to see the eclipse from start to end. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. (Genesis 26:4-5)

Lord, I’m here, but I’m a bit distracted. I ask you to help me with distractions. Help me know what is a distraction and what is the item at hand that you’d have me do. Lindsey, today’s scripture is amazing in how it refers to obedience, hearing God’s voice and then actually doing what God asks. Abraham did. And the earth was blessed as a result! I pray for you today Lindsey, that as you hear God’s voice that you would be a do-er as well as a hear-er. And then I pray that God would bless not only you, but your family, your friends, and all those around you. And the glory goes to God. All the glory is his. Amen (more…)

May God grant you a long life where all is well for you as you walk in his ways and doing what he asks of you.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for helping me maintain a thankful heart. Thank you that I remember to thank you! I am truly grateful for your many blessings you have given me. I appreciate your protection and provision every day. And now I also thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And the Lord heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the Lord said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken. O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Go say to them, Get you into your tents again. But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it. Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. (Deuteronomy 5:28-33)

Lord, here I am, as usual. I am here to lift Lindsey up to you this day. She loves you Lord and wants to follow your ways. I ask that you open her mind and her heart to know your commandments. I ask that you give her the will to carefully obey them all. Lindsey, you know what God is asking of you. Don’t turn to the right nor the left. Stay on the path God shows you and walk in his ways! Then I ask the Lord to grant you a long life where all is well for you. And we will give God the glory in all those days. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Your reverent respect for God is a key to the fun of skipping and dancing about

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the beautiful day, the wonderful morning. Thank you for the gentle breeze, the crisp fresh air. Thank you for sunshine and for letting me see bits of your beauty and glory this morning. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. (Malachi 4:2)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin a prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I get to pray another of my favorite scriptures over you as you do have a reverent respect for God, you do have a healthy fear of the Lord and you do strive to obey what he asks of you. Thus his saving power will rise on you bringing you healing. But the fun part is how this scripture refers to you! You shall be like leaping, jumping, skipping happy calves let out of the stall. Let this scripture be confirmation to you that it is not only OK to skip and dance around … it is actually biblical :) And together let’s give God the glory. The glory is all his! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

It’s Your Birthday! Be glad in the Lord. Rejoice. Shout for joy!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Today is a very special day for your daughter. It is Lindsey’s birthday. But then, you already knew that :)

Thank you for allowing me to pray for Lindsey for all these months. And thank you for cereal. Yes, I too totally enjoy cereal both morning, noon and night … as does Lindsey. You know what cereal she likes. I thank you for the cereals with lower carbs, especially my favorite: Special K Cinnamon Pecan … crunchy rice and wheat flakes with pecans and cinnamon! Mmmm. And thank you for your Word and for this psalm that tells us all to be righteous and upright in heart and to REJOICE:

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. (Psalm 32:11)

Lord, I’m here. I’ve been waiting for this day for it is Lindsey’s birthday. And so I am happy that your scripture for today is all about rejoicing and being glad. However it is conditional. Lindsey, I pray that you remain upright in heart. Guard your heart. I pray that you will remain righteous in the midst of so many worldly temptations. However … you then can jump up and down and shout for joy. You then can be glad in the Lord. You then can rejoice! So … let us say together, “Oh Happy Day!” and I will add to that … Happy Birthday! And while we are rejoicing, let’s remember to give the glory to God. All the glory goes to him. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Be blessed as you listen for God’s voice and obey what he asks of you.

Good morning Heavenly Father. What a wonderful day you made. Thank you for this day. Thank you for the morning turning into afternoon and then evening and night. Thank you for the progression during each day. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. (Genesis 22:15-18)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here to begin another prayer for the daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture is about obeying what God is telling you even if you think you have a better idea. Perhaps God is merely testing whether you actually would obey him in all cases! Perhaps God will ask you to give up something and then as you are in the process of giving it up he might shout “WAIT”, just as he did for Abraham!  Listen for “Wait … now I know that you would do even the hardest things for me!” Lord, this is big. I ask that you be with Lindsey during any of these times of testing. I ask that you open her mind to what is true and fade away any deception and lies. I ask that you let her eyes see clearly what is before her. I ask that her heart be ready. Lord, I ask that you find ways that Lindsey would KNOW that you are there and what you are asking of her. And then Lord, I ask that you bless her and her family, just like you blessed Abraham. Bless her as she obeys your voice! And we will give all the glory to you. 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…)

Listen for the voice of the Lord and many blessings will follow

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for a day anew with you. Thank you for bringing clarity to my mind and thank you for answering my prayers so clearly. And thank you for the scripture to pray over Lindsey:

And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. (Deuteronomy 28:2)

Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to begin today’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray God’s abundant blessings on you. God promises his blessing on you as you just listen to hear his voice. Blessings are tied in with obeying the Lord. I ask that God would show you the way to go and that he would give you the courage to actually go where he shows you. And the glory is his. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Go out into the world… go out there teaching as well as playing violin!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the children. Thank you for holding the children up as an example for us. Thank you for letting us know that it is not only OK to be like a child … but it is preferable! And thank you for your word today to speak over your daughter you love… this is the word for your Lindsey:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to begin another prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today the scripture given to me to pass along to you in this prayer is a powerful one. Jesus is telling you to GO.  Yes, I know that you are GOing almost all the time.  Jesus is telling you to go to THE NATIONS! Yes, I know that you just got back from going out to the nations around the world. But Jesus is saying a bit more that just GO … a bit more than just go to THE NATIONS. Yes, he wants you to take your violins out with you. He wants you to utilize the gifts, skills and talents that he has given you. But he says it is more than just that. While you are going, while you are in the nations, while you are out there in the world he wants you ALSO to be teaching. Yes, you can be teaching wherever you go because Jesus said you can. He sent you. Teach all the things he has commanded (which means that you are wise to be reading the Bible every day so that you know what God is saying to everyone). So I pray for you as you go. I pray for you as you go to the nations. And I pray for you as you teach there. I pray that you can teach by what you do as well as by what you say. I pray that God will give you the words as well as the opportunities. And we can both glorify God. The glory is all his. GLORY! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

A chance to reconsider what God has asked of you and to do it

Heavenly Father, good morning. It finally is feeling like Spring. Thank you for the change of seasons. Thank you for the winter that helps me to appreciate spring more. Thank you for your Word and for the stories that Jesus told, even the ones that I don’t think I fully understand yet (and I ask you for further understanding). And thank you for this particular story that I think I finally figured out, at least partially:

But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. (Matthew 21:28-31a)

Lord, it’s me. Here I am! You asked me to pray and to keep on praying for your daughter you love so much. And so I am. I am praying another prayer for you today Lindsey. Today I believe I am to pray that you jump at the chance to do something God has asked you before but somehow never got done. Or the chance to go somewhere God asked you before but that you hesitated and didn’t go. I am praying for you today Lindsey, that you recognize this and jump at the chance that God gives you to reconsider and do it now (even though previously you had told him “no” or “I can’t”). And I pray that the Lord would give you the courage to do just that.  I pray that he would show you the path you need to take and that he would make it very clear to you. I pray that obstacles would be removed for you. And I pray that God would give you the words when you need them. And we will give all the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
