The Lord Is Doing Great Things. Do You See Them?

Heavenly Father. What an amazing universe you created just for us! You could have splashed a few hundred (or even a few thousand) stars around the heavens for us to see at night – but you are bigger than that and far more extravagant! So you filled the heavens with billions of stars – likely more that we cannot see than that we can see! What a glorious gift for our nights! Thank you for showing us your glory in this way! And thank you for your daughter Lindsey and the scriptures you gave me for this prayer for her this day:

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things (Joel 2:21)

and one of my favorite passages that says “See what God has done!”

according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! (Numbers 23:23b)

Lord, it is me again. I have come before you on behalf of Lindsey every day for a year now, and today my prayer for your daughter you love ends with scriptures that reminds us that you will do great things for her. We are reminded that you already have done great things for her. And so, Lindsey, I close one year of prayers with that reminder. I pray that each and every day you would always remember some of the great things that God has done for you. And I pray that each day you also would expect even more. God is a gracious and generous God, so be glad and rejoice, for he will continue to do great things for you. Why? Because he loves you! After all, you ARE his daughter! And so we now give all the glory to God. The glory is all to him. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Radiant!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for coffee. Thank you for a Wendy’s chocolate frosty. And thank you for reminding me to try combining them! The frosty cooled down the coffee so I did not need to add ice cubes. The frosty took the place of the cream.  And it even took the place of the sugar. Thank you for a wonderful drink this morning! And thank you for an interesting scripture from Jeremiah for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the Lord, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow. (Jeremiah 31:11-13)

The center piece of this scripture can be translated as being RADIANT when in the midst of the goodness of the Lord!

ESV:

they shall be radiant over the goodness of the Lord

NET:

They will be radiant with joy over the good things the Lord provides

NLT:

They will be radiant because of the Lord’s good gifts

HCSB:

they will be radiant with joy because of the Lord’s goodness

Lord, I’m here again. I was anxious to come see you this morning when I woke up for I wanted to begin another prayer for your daughter who enjoys singing and playing songs of joy to you. I ask that you find a way for her to come and sing to you today. Let her joy be evident to those around her.  Let her glow as she delights in you Lord. Let her be radiant with joy while she is in the midst of your goodness. And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Don’t look at what you are lacking. Look at your abundance while guarding your heart.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for taste. Thank you for letting us taste the things we eat and drink. Thank you for your creation filled with such a wide variety of tastes. Thank you for things that taste sweet as well as bitter or sour. Thank you for both hot and cold tastes that can differ. Thank you for all these things that we tend to take for granted every day. And thank you for the scriptures to use in today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. (2 Corinthians 8:11-15)

Yes, it is written in Exodus:

17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. (Exodus 16:17-18)

Lord, as usual, here I am. I come to sit with you every day… many times during the day. But right now I wish to begin a new prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, these short scriptures say much, and I will pray them over you now. First I pray that you will not worry about what you don’t have. Scriptures clearly say that God is looking at what you do with what you DO have. I pray that you will be able to cease worrying about what you are lacking so that you can focus on what you have in abundance! Finally, I pray that God would guide you in your abundance. When you have an abundance of something I pray that God would show you ways to help others with it. I pray that you will always find ways to share your talents and skills with others, but also I pray a bigger prayer. I pray that greed would not tempt you. I pray that you would always see ways to share your abundance with others and that the Lord would reward you with joy in your heart. I pray that you would never lack joy in your heart. I believe I also can share something God told me seven years ago. Yes, this was a word for ME, and not for anyone else. But it did come to mind as I was writing this prayer for you today. “There is no need to fear what we are lacking. Rather fear the hardening of our hearts.” I pray that you would watch over your heart Lindsey. Watch for signs that it is hardening and then take action to keep a soft heart. I pray that God would be your guide in this each day of your journey. And we will give the glory to him. All the glory goes to him. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

May God continue to be your provider!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for being my provider and protector. And thank you for the scriptures that tell how you were the good provider to the Israelites as well:

31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. (John 6:31)

It was written in Nehemiah:

15 And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give them. (Nehemiah 9:15)

Lord, I’m here again, I am here every day. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I pray that the Lord would continue to be your provider. I pray that he would provide to you directly from heaven. I pray that when you hunger and thirst, that God would be there for you. I pray that you would see the many ways that God is giving to you and providing for you. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
