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…)

The righteous will be glad and will rejoice EXCEEDINGLY!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the roof over my head. Thank you for food on my table. Thank you for the clothes that I wear. Thank you for my health. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. (Psalm 68:3)

Lord, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today’s scripture is quite amazing. It is another IF… THEN… scripture that ties obedience together with joy. Just strive to be righteous and look what it says you will have! You will be glad. You will rejoice. Wait … not JUST rejoice … you will rejoice EXCEEDINGLY! You will be jubilant with joy! Lord, I pray that you will be the guide for Lindsey as she strives for that righteousness. Surround her with godly advisers. Place a hedge of protection around her and her family. Provide her with ways that she can put her finger on how you are really there with her and for her! And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

As you walk in God’s ways, may you rejoice in your heart

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for nuts (the kinds that I eat:) Almonds and cashews are so good. Thank you for the huge variety of things that we can eat. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. (Psalm 19:8)

Lord, I’m here again to lift up Lindsey to you. She loves you and strives to follow your ways and obey your commandments. So I pray that you would continue to provide rejoicing for her heart. I pray that you would enlighten her eyes and give her insight on living. Many people in the world are watching your daughter. I pray that they notice how she rejoices from her heart and has a keen insight for living. I pray that they will also notice that it is connected with how she strives to walk in your ways Lord. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Include joy and music with your sacrifices and offerings to God

Heavenly Father good morning! Thank you for holding all things together. Thank you for being in control, yet always having something for us as well. Thank you for showing us the way you would have us go and lighting the way before us. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter:

Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the Lord by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the Lord, to offer the burnt offerings of the Lord, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David. (2 Chronicles 23:18)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as usual on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves rejoicing in you. Lindsey, today we see how rejoicing and singing are in integral part of our sacrifices and offerings to God. I pray that you always find ways to make your sacrifice and offerings to God and that you can do it with joy and with music. Perhaps you will hear the angels singing along with your music. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name 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…)

Seek God with all your heart and your whole desire. Rejoice, be happy and take delight in it!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the sunshine. Thank you for the clouds. Thank you for the needed rain. Thank you for all the weather changes. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the Lord gave them rest round about. (2 Chronicles 15:15)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here as usual. I’m here on behalf of your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, this is a wonderful scripture to pray over you today because I know that you seek the lord with your whole desire, with all your heart. I pray that you will rejoice just as all Judah did. I pray that you will find delight in worshiping the Lord. I pray that you will find peace on every side around you. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all to him. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

GNT:
All the people of Judah were happy because they had made this covenant with all their heart. They took delight in worshiping the Lord, and he accepted them and gave them peace on every side.

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:

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…)

Enter the city with the sound of stringed instruments then proceed to the house of the Lord

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the small, the little, the tiny. The small drops of rain that combine into a puddle or even fill the streets. The little seed that ends up a huge bush or tree.  The tiny organisms seen only under a microscope. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 20:27-28)

Lord, I’m here again. It’s me! I am here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter you love.  Today I pray that Lindsey may be in the forefront with the leaders singing and playing and rejoicing.  Let them parade into the city and then enter your temple with songs of praise. And all the glory is yours Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Their music and rejoicing shook the earth

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for feeding the birds. And thank you for telling us that we each are more valuable than a bird! And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer for your daughter today:

And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon. And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them. (1 Kings 1:40)

Lord, I’m here again… as usual, to begin another days prayer for your daughter who loves you. And today I ask for something big, something huge. Today I ask that you be with Lindsey and let her shake the earth with joyful celebration and praise to you Lord. Let those around her rejoice with her. Let the joy of the Lord fill Lindsey and let that joy be apparent to everyone who sees her rejoicing in you Lord. And the glory goes to you. We give you the glory. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen … and let the earth shake in celebration of God! (more…)
