Qualified? YES! With Integrity!

Note: “savour” can also be translated as “fragrance” and “aroma” – refer to the original Greek words (yes KJV validly translates two different words as “savour”, but both are slightly different words)

* Strong word G3744 ( ὀσμή ) – a smell, aroma, fragrance – From ozo; fragrance (literally or figuratively) — odour, savour.

** Strong word G2175 ( εὐωδία ) – a sweet smell, fragrance – From a compound of eu and a derivative of ozo; good-scentedness, i.e. Fragrance — sweet savour (smell, -smelling).

Hello Heavenly Father. What a world! What a wonderful world you created for us. A world full of wonders, full of amazing things. Birds that fly backwards, squirrels that glide smoothly through the air, spiders that  seem to float across to where they want to go. Thank you for the many unique parts of your complex creation. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey, that speaks of having a character that is like a sweet savor** (fragrance or aroma):

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour* of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour** of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour* of death unto death; and to the other the savour* of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)

Lord, I’m here to pray for your daughter again today. Lindsey, I am one of those who while shopping look for “fragrance free” products. Fragrances bother my eyes and even affect my breathing, even if it is just a faint fragrance. So I totally understand the power of a fragrance. The fragrance is noticeable even when I am not looking for it so to speak. When someone with perfume is nearby, the fragrance just seems to be all around me when I am near them. Others may find sweet smells pleasant but still are affected by “bad” smells (a stench). What scripture seems to be saying is that we can live our lives so that we are sweetly noticeable wherever we go. And so that is my prayer for you today Lindsey. I pray that you would continue to live your life with integrity, and that would be sufficient.  I pray that your character and sincerity would have the same effect as a sweet aroma, and that would qualify you to not corrupt the Word of God, but to speak it in truth, in Christ. And the glory all is to God. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

(Q) You are Qualified

(See other translations to help with old English “which hath made us meet”)

Heavenly Father, thank you for the warm room in the midst of 30 below zero wind chill temperatures. Thank you for watching over me all these years and I ask that you would watch over all the others during the very cold temperatures. Thank you for being my instructor and my guide. And thank you for such a good scripture for the letter Q:

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet* to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: (Colossians 1:12)

Lord, I am here again. Here to sit with you and to remember your daughter you love, to recall Lindsey. You have made her qualified for every task that you set before her. I ask that you give her confidence and let her feel fully qualified for everything she sets out to accomplish. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

* “hath made us meet” = “has qualified us”
