God uses Ordinary People to do Extraordinary Things
Heavenly Father – Good Morning! Thank you for my breath. Thank you for the fresh clean air that I am breathing. Thank you Lord. And thank you for showing me the scripture to use while I write out my daily prayer for your gifted daughter:
The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. (Amos 1:1)
Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit: And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel. (Amos 7:14-15)
Lord, I come before you today, just an ordinary man, but confidently coming to meet with you to support and pray for Lindsey. She loves you Lord and she strives each and every day to walk with you. Today I ask that you would remind her how you enjoy taking plain ordinary people and then using them in extraordinary ways. Amos is a good example of this. He was just a common sheepherder who also gathered fruit from sycamore trees. His father was not a prophet, yet God chose him to prophesy to Israel. Now, Lord, I see the many gifts and talents you have given Lindsey and I ask that you open doors for her where she can share her artistic abilities and glorify you at the same time. Yes, we give you the glory, Lord. In the midst of everything Lindsey does, she glorifies you. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
