Only the Best for the Lord’s Temple and the Musicians
Heavenly Father, what a wonderful creation you made. All the stars, planets and moons in the universe and everything on this earth. All the birds and animals as well as all the plants and trees. And the scripture for my prayer is centered around a very specific tree, a tree that King Solomon consider the finest, the best! Thank you for creating so many trees. Two years ago Science Magazine had a short article about the new archive database that researchers and scientists have compiled that catalogs over 60,000 trees! Thank you for being a God of order and a God of fine detail. It is amazing that you created this earth with such a huge variety of everything! Your handiwork is there before our eyes as witnessed by botanical experts! And so this validates the scripture (Romans 1:18-20 – see below) that says people are without excuse when they try to claim to not know about God. Yes, Lord, you have made yourself quite evident in your creation … even in our world’s trees! Thank you for such an extensive and exquisite creation made just for us! And thank you for the scripture that speaks of just ONE of the thousands of trees:
With the timber the king made supports for the Lord ’s temple and for the royal palace and stringed instruments for the musicians. No one has seen so much of this fine timber to this very day. (1Kings 10:12 NET)
or the ESV translation (similar to KJV):
And the king made of the almug wood supports for the house of the Lord and for the king’s house, also lyres and harps for the singers. No such almug wood has come or been seen to this day. (1Kings10:12 ESV)
Lord, I’m here. I’ve been here with you for quite some time, pondering these magnificent trees! And while each tree is beautiful, there was ONE tree that Solomon thought was best for the Temple. Perhaps thus we can refer to it as one of the royal trees. And now I lift up your daughter Lindsey. She is a fine musician, just like the royal musicians that the Scripture references. And she too has wooden stringed instruments made in the finest way. She has beautiful custom made violins. Lindsey, I pray this scripture over you this day. I pray that you would find ways to praise and honor the Lord with your fine stringed instruments. I pray that you would continue using the wonderful talents and skills that the Lord has gifted you with. I pray that your music would be royal, that it would be a delight for the Lord to hear. And together let us praise the Lord. Let us give HIM the glory! All the glory is his! I pray this over you in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
King James Version for your reference:
And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the Lord, and for the king’s house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day. (1Kings 10:12 KJV)

You are a royal priesthood to proclaim praises of the God who called you from darkness into his marvelous light
Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for the dexterity and quick coordination of my fingers as they type this prayer. My fingers seem to know exactly where to go to type the words to match the thoughts as they run through my mind without my needing to even look at them or at the keyboard. What a miracle this is. Perhaps it is similar to how your daughter can play the violin as if it were all part of her. While I can’t seem to understand how it all “works”, I can say thank you for it, as it points to your wonderful design when you created us. And thank you for the scripture to use for my prayer today for your daughter:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light (1 Peter 2:9)
Lord, it’s me again, coming to sit with you to rest a bit as you take me on this wild ride, from tears, to excitement, to royalty and prayer. Yesterdays scripture for your daughter was from royalty. Today’s is to royalty as you remind Lindsey that she can sing and play praises to you for she is called into your marvelous light. And so I ask that you open her eyes to see this marvelous light. Let it be her inspiration for her praises this day. Provide her with the opportunity to show praises of you. Yes, let all the glory be to you Lord. We give you the glory. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
Perhaps you are here for such a time as this!
Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for continuing to be my provider and protector, my instructor and my guide. Thank you for the scripture that is for your daughter Lindsey. I pray this scripture over her this day:
For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:14-16)
Lord, yesterdays tears are gone, and now I come before you to ask that you would speak to Lindsey if you have helped her achieve her international status and position for such a time as this. Who knows, perhaps she has come to your kingdom for such a time as this! I ask that you be her guide, that you carefully and clearly show her the way she should go … and give her the courage to go that way. Remind her that you are at her side each and every step of the way. Let her see the path as you see it Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
