Trust and Delight in the Lord and He Grants You the Desires of Your Heart

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for the overnight rain. Thank you for my car which for over two decades has gotten me around my city. And thank you for the scripture for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. (Psalm 37:3-6)

Lord, I’m here again as usual to begin today’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who delights herself in you. Lindsey, today’s prayer may be for things you already know and do, but we are told to remind each other of such things, so join me in this prayer. I pray that you continue to trust in the Lord. I pray that you continue to do what is right and good each day and that God will take care of you as you dwell in this land. Let those around you notice your faith and your integrity. I pray that you continue to delight yourself in the Lord. I ask that God would once again fill you full of his joy as you delight in him. I ask that he grant you the desires of your heart. Make a commitment Lindsey! Decide that you will trust in God and that you will go the way he shows you, and he will bring it to pass. He will publicly defend your just cause. Lord, let Lindsey’s righteousness shine brightly, as bright as the noonday sun. Let all those around her see this light. And we will give you the glory. 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…)

May God grant you wisdom to shine before all those watching you

Heavenly Father, good morning. Yes, what a good morning. What a good start for this day. Thank you for allowing me another day to see your beauty all around me wherever I go. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)

Lord, I’m here to lift Lindsey up to you.  Lord, grant her more of your godly wisdom to help her choose wisely the paths that are before her. Many are watching her Lord, so I ask that you protect her with your wisdom. I ask that you help her to be a shining example before the world. Let her shine wherever she goes. Let many of those watching her turn to righteousness. And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Do Justice. Do what is right and good. Be Blessed!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for holding everything together for this day. Thank you for all the small miracles that are there before us that we just take for granted. And thank you for the scripture to use for your daughter Lindsey this day:

Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. (Isaiah 56:1-2)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. I ask that you come near to her. I ask that you reveal your righteousness to her. And Lindsey, be careful, today and every day. Be careful to do these things. Do justice. Be just and fair to everyone. Do what is right and good. And then the joy kicks in because God says you then are blessed. Blessed! Don’t take being blessed lightly. Perhaps being blessed may mean that God is opening a window of favor for you. Perhaps being blessed for you may mean having people around you who build up your faith and help you to not stray from God. Perhaps being blessed is being part of a family who supports and encourages you. I ask that God bless you in just the right way! And we will give him the glory. 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…)

Guard your mind and heart from the corruption in the world around you

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for sending your Son to be our savior. Thank you Jesus for dying for us. Thank you God for raising Jesus from the dead. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2 Peter 2:20-22)

Yes, the book of Proverbs does say this:

11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. (Proverbs 26:11)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter Lindsey. I’m here on her behalf Lord. And today I pray that you would protect Lindsey from getting entangled in the corruption of the world around her, especially since she is in the public eye and is seen as a role model for many. Lord, I ask that you guard her mind and her heart from all the defilements that the world sets before her eyes. I ask that you continue to place godly people all around her. I ask that you show Lindsey some of your plans for her. I ask that you bring clarity to her vision Lord. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Let your actions show that you believe God!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for family. And thank you for the three scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. (James 2:23)

It was the first book of the Bible (Genesis) which said it:

And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:6)

And then in 2 Chronicles it says Abraham was God’s friend:

Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? (2 Chronicles 20:7)

Lord, it’s me again. I would like to begin my next daily prayer for your daughter you love. Yes, Lindsey believes you Lord, so I ask that you count that as righteousness for her.  I ask that you call her your friend! However, Lindsey, be sure to read the 4 sentences that come before this statement in James! Be reminded that it is more than what you believe, more than mere faith … it is what you actually DO in addition to your faith and believing God. So, Lord, I ask that you give Lindsey many opportunities to put her faith into action. Give her many opportunities to actually DO things that align with her faith and what she hears you saying to her. Let her hear you clearly Lord. And give her the courage to actually do things that are not in her comfort zone! And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Live By Faith

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for the pleasant day – wonderful for my trip to visit my brother. Thank you for a bus and a plane to get me there and back. Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:17)

It is written in Habakkuk:

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

Lord, I’m here. I am enjoying sitting with you. Before anything else, I wish to lift up Lindsey. She is using the exceptional talents and skills that you gifted her with. She is using those skills to inspire thousands of people. And so, Lindsey, today I pray that you will always be able to live by faith. This is one of my favorite things because I have a unique perspective on it.  Many times I have google searched to see what this condition is that I have, but have never found it mentioned. I usually cannot visualize roads while I am driving. I can drive the same way to the same place 300 times, and still at times I will be driving there and my “path” blacks out in my mind. I see the road I am driving on but I can’t picture the route I am supposed to take. I can’t “see” my next turn ahead of time. So, I just keep driving in the right direction assuming that when the turn comes, that I will recognize it and turn at that intersection. Then I will keep driving assuming that I will be fine even though I can’t visualize where I will turn next. But when I get close to the intersection, all of a sudden it is clear and I have time to make the turn. One of my good friends told me that this is a blessing, a unique blessing that God has given me. My friend told me that I may find living by faith much easier since for decades I have been driving by faith! And I think he is right. I no longer consider this a problem or disability, but I consider it a gift that helps me to know that I can truly live by faith. And so, Lindsey, I pray that you also will always find ways to remember to simply live by faith. All you need to know is the next step.  Once you take the next step, then God will show you the step that comes after it. However, in your case, it seems that God treats you to a road map well ahead of time. You have a road map of the places you are scheduled to tour. And you have a supportive godly team that goes along with you. I thank the Lord for providing you with the support and godly advice that you need when you need it.  And so, just remember that what Habakkuk said thousands of years ago was so important that Paul repeated it, quoted it in his letter to the Romans… Live By Faith. And all the while we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: The Kingdom of Heaven is Yours when you are persecuted for being righteous

This is the eighth blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, I pray that you continue to be righteous each day, no matter what the cost, for then the kingdom of heaven is yours!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the miracle of life. Today I am noticing my teeth. Thank you for creating teeth that can bite and chew for a hundred years and they still are capable of biting off a good piece of a barbecued rib! Thank you for the many other miracles we often overlook. And thank you for giving us your word and for the many people who painstakingly copied it and preserved it. And thank you for those who translated it into a language that I can understand, including the scripture where Jesus said:

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:10)

Lord, I am here again. I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. I am here to bless her today. Yes, Lindsey, today I bless you in the name of Christ Jesus and pray that you continue to be righteous no matter what the cost. There are many watching you and imitating your righteousness. Yet there are many others who won’t hesitate to speak out against you and your beliefs. Don’t be discouraged Lindsey for yours is the kingdom of heaven. And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Blessing: Hunger to be Righteous and you will be satisfied and filled

Today is the fourth blessing from the Sermon on the Mount. Lindsey, may you hunger for righteousness. May you thirst to be righteous. Then may you be filled and be completely satisfied.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my fingers. Wow, how amazing these fingers are. They know exactly where to go to type this exceedingly fast without my even looking at them. They know how far to stretch and what force to exert to have a letter typed on my keyboard. Thank you Lord! And thank you for the scripture where Jesus said:

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. (Matthew 5:6)

Lord, it is with joy that I come to sit with you again today. It is with joy that I sit here with you … knowing that when I get up and go out that you will be walking there besides me everywhere I go. But for now, I wish to start the blessing for your daughter you love for this day. Lindsey, I pray that you will hunger for righteousness. I pray that you will thirst for righteousness. And finally I bless you with being satisfied and filled. And together we can give the glory to the Lord. All the glory is his. I pray this over you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
