Get Alone! Jesus Often Did!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for being our provider. My family has everything that we need. Thank you for being so generous and help me to be generous today as well. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Once Jesus was famous, he had to withdraw away from the multitudes:
But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. (Luke 5:15-16)
Other times Jesus had to send the crowds away so that he could be by himself to pray:
And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. (Matthew 14:22-23)
And then there were times Jesus would get up early to be alone to pray and left to travel to another town even though crowds had gathered to see him:
And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. (Mark 1:35-38)
Lord, it’s me. I’m here as usual to pray for your daughter who loves you. You have gifted her with great talent and skills. And she uses those talents well. So much that she has become famous. And so these scriptures apply especially to you Lindsey! As Jesus became famous we are told that he had to make a point withdraw to secluded places to pray. He needed time alone. And so that is my prayer for you Lindsey. I pray that you recognize the need to get a way and be with alone with your God. At times you may need to dismiss the crowds. At other times you may need to sneak away someplace on your own (though you may want to tell someone where you are going:) Lord, I ask that any time that Lindsey goes off alone to be with you that you would let her know that you are there with her. I ask that you hear her prayers and desires of her heart. I ask that you answer her in a way that she can hear you clearly and know it is you. And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
I Pray That You Are Praying!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day. Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for always being with me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
Lord, I’m here as usual to begin another day’s prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I am praying that you are praying! Yes indeed, because when you pray, God will listen. If you seek him with all your heart you will indeed find him. God has good plans for you… plans that give you a future and a hope… plans to prosper you. And so, I pray today that you will pray. God is waiting to hear from his daughter! Pray knowing God will answer you. And together let’s give him the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Discouraged? NOT! Praying? YES!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for waking me this morning and being with me this day. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus speaking] And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; (Luke 18:1)
Lord, it’s me. It’s me again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. I pray that you fill her with your joy Lord. Let it be her strength so she need to be weary and feel faint. Lord let discouragement be far from her. Surround her with those who will encourage her and keep on on the path you set before her. And most importantly is prayer. Lindsey, remember to pray. Remember to pray often. Actually, Jesus asked you to be always praying! Let the people who are watching you day after day notice that not only are you smiling and joyful as well as talented, but that you also are prayerful. Let some of your prayers be while others are watching. I pray that you would be a good role model in prayer as well as in how to live. 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…)
Get Up and Pray!
Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for keeping my teeth in good shape. Thank you for how teeth are so essential to eating, which in turn is essential for life. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus speaking] And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. (Luke 22:46)
Lord, I’m here again as usual. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray that you will do all that you can to avoid falling into temptation. Jesus seems to be saying that at times it is good to wake up even while very sleepy. He suggests waking up to pray! So praying is one way to avoid temptation. Thus I pray for you now Lindsey. I pray that you would not enter into temptation. Draw a line that you will not cross. Maintain your integrity. Many are watching! You are their role model even if you don’t know them. Continue to remind them that you read scriptures daily … that you pray every day. And together we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Remember to pray for God’s protection during your travels
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taking care of us. Thank you for being our provider. Yes, and thank you for also being our protector! Thank you for being so faithful. Help our faith as well today please! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was entreated of us. (Ezra 8:21-23)
Lord, I am here. I am here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I am here to lift her up and to pray for her. Lindsey, this scripture is just a small piece of a good story. This is a story about the king allowing and supporting Ezra and all who were to travel with him to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. It seems that Ezra realized that the king knew that he and those travelling with him believed in the Almighty God, the All Powerful God. And so Ezra realized, that if they asked the king to protect them as they traveled that the king might wonder why their God was not the one protecting them. And so Ezra proclaimed a fast. They fasted and prayed to God for protection on their journey… and he answered them! And so now I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that you would always look to God for your protection during your travels. Pray before each trip and ask God to be with you and protect you and all who are travelling with you. Pray and expect that God will hear your prayer (because he will!) Lord, I join with Lindsey in this. I join with her in praying to you to protect her and her team wherever they travel, wherever their journey takes them. I pray that you would let Lindsey see first hand your protection. Let your protection over her be real to her. Give her confidence, not only in her talents … but confidence in her God! And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Joyful in Prayer! Rejoice while Praying!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for watching over me while I sleep since you never sleep nor slumber. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. (Mark 11:17)
It is written in the book of Isaiah:
7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (Isaiah 56:7)
Lord, it’s me. I’m happy to sit with you. Praying is a joy… I rejoice as I pray for your daughter you love, just as you rejoice as you watch over her. Lindsey, today I pray for your prayers. I pray that your times of prayer are joyful. I pray that you rejoice to be talking with God while you pray. I pray that you look forward to your times of prayer and that God would often let you feel his presence around you as you pray. And together we give the glory to him. All the glory is to God. I pray this joyfully in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
The Lord’s Prayer
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for flowers! Thank you for the lupine flower that my friends talked about this morning. Thank you for how such a simple flower can be so majestic when seen in a group. Thank you for how the colors of that same flower can vary so greatly, yet the flower itself is solid in one color. Thank you for how grouped together the different colors go so well together! Perhaps this is an example of how differences can add even more to what individually was quite good! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you this morning as usual. I’m here to lift up your daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture reminds us of how Jesus prayed … prayed often and in many ways. But today’s scripture is often referred to as his model prayer. So we can pray it together now. We pray to our heavenly Father and honor his name. We ask for his will to be done right here, right now. We ask for him to continue to be our provider and to forgive us as we also remember that we too forgive others! And we ask for him to protect us from the evil in the world and give him all the glory. Yes, the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
(H) Hannah – God’s gracious response to her prayer
Lindsey, I pray today that God will hear your prayers when you pour out your soul before the Lord. May the Lord hear your prayers coming direct from your heart. May the Lord grant your request as he granted Hannah’s request.
Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for letting me taste things. Taste is fantastic, yet so often we just take it for granted. But today, I thank you for taste! And I also thank you for the scriptures about Hannah that I can use for Women in the Bible for the letter H:
And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord. Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. (1 Samuel 1:12-17)
Lord, I’m here again. I am here as always to pray for your daughter Lindsey. And today I pray that Hannah may be a model for you. She prayed to God from her heart … no sounds at all. And God heard her prayer and answered her request. And she then praised God (see chapter 2). So, today I pray that whenever situations become intense or overwhelming that you would follow Hannah’s example and pour out your soul to the Lord, expecting him to answer you. Yes … and I pray that God would indeed hear your prayers, hear your requests and that he would answer you clearly. 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 (more…)

Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome this new day with you. I thank you for the restful sleep over the night and thank you for being with me as I sleep. Thank you for being with me all day and night, for never leaving me. And thank you for the scripture to bless your daughter this day:
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-7)

Lord, she is a godly role model for the young women today so I ask that you keep her healthy and full of your joy. And now let me bless you Lindsey. May your gentle nature be obvious to everyone you meet. God is close to you. May those around you see this in your eyes. May your anxiety dissipate as you praise the Lord with songs and prayers of thanksgiving. May God’s peace rest in your heart and in your mind so that you may remain calm the entire day. May the Lord hear your requests today. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I bless you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Heavenly Father, thank you for being my provider and protector. Thank you for being my light and my guide. Thank you for being with me and for giving me words when needed. And thank you for this scripture to bless you daughter with this day:
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)
