You are appointed as a Musician to play your Violin Joyfully

Heavenly Father good morning. Thank you for providing us with such interesting weather. Calm and humid and then suddenly extremely windy and cool. Raining hard and then all of a sudden sunny and nice. And all this in just one day. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers with instruments of musick, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy. (1 Chronicles 15:16)

Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I am ready to pray for Lindsey now. Lindsey, I pray today that you would be able to use the many musical talents, skills and gifts with joy. I pray that your concerts would be joyful times for you. I pray that the thousands who come to hear you will hear more than just you. I pray that the love and grace of God will shine through each of your performances. Perhaps God has set you in this place just like how 1 Chronicles refers to musicians being appointed to sing and to play their instruments. I pray that the joy of the Lord would be with you during each day of your tour. And we can give the glory to God. All the glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Psalms – to be accompanied by stringed instruments

From the Old Testament Student Manual:

(14) Neginoth [Psalm 4; 61]. … This name, from the Hebrew word meaning to strike a chord, … clearly denotes that the Psalm was to be sung to the accompaniment of stringed instruments.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for fresh air, without it life would cease. Thank you for chords played upon stringed instruments and for ears to hear them. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. (Psalm 4:1)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey who is taking time to read your word today and each day this year. I ask that you bring more and more understanding of the words that she reads in your Word. I ask that you let her understand how some of the psalms of David were written to be accompanied by stringed instruments playing chords. And I ask that you give her many opportunities to use her talent and skills to accompany scriptures with her violin. And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Use your violin to accompany songs from scripture

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your Word filled with the truths we need in this life. Thank you for sending your Son to redeem and save us. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments. (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Lord, here I am. I’m here as usual to pray for your daughter you love. And the scripture for today includes something I had not noticed before, even after reading Habakkuk many times over the years … it ends by specifying it was for the chief singer, the song leader or choir director and is to be accompanied by stringed instruments! And so today I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that the stringed instrument you play can accompany scriptures… can accompany songs from scripture. I pray that God will reveal more of this to you today and that he will give you many opportunities to use your violin like this. And the glory is to God. He gets all the glory. I pray this in the name 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…)

Women joined in playing music to the Lord

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for movement. Thank you for legs that move me around on cushioned steps. Thank you for my feet that keep me balanced. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels. (Psalm 68:25)

Lord, I’m here again, as usual. I am ready to begin another daily prayer for your daughter Lindsey. I ask that you let her be like the young women who played on instruments as part of a procession that honored you God. Let the music glorify you Lord. I ask that you provide Lindsey with many opportunities to glorify you in her music and dance. And we will give the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings.  Amen (more…)

Praise God with your violin among many nations

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for hummingbirds, so small and pretty as they dart here and there between their favorite flowers. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. (Psalm 57:7-9)

Lord, I’m here again. I so look forward to the times when I can simply sit with you. And now I offer up another prayer for your daughter. She has the musical talent and skills. She is filled with the joy of the Lord. And now I ask what seems to be a big prayer. Let her heart be fixed on you God. Let her heart be ready.  Let her be determined Lord. Wake her early so she can sing and play to you. Let her wake the sleepy dawn with praise. Let this be her joy regardless of what nation she is in. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Let your violin sing praises to God – sing a new song to him!

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for ears to hear. Thank you for music to hear. Thank you for the new songs. Thank you for stringed instruments that sing praises to you. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. (Psalm 144:9)

Lord, I’m here to sit with you again and lift up your daughter Lindsey. You have gifted her with extreme musical talent and skill. I ask that you give her a new song this week. I ask that you reveal to her a song that allows her violin to sing praises to you. And we will give the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Play Praises to God as He Made You Glad

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the food we eat. Thank you for the house giving us shelter and a home. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,  Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. (Psalm 92:1-4)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. I ask that you continue to make her glad through your work. I ask that you allow her to triumph in your works! Give her many opportunities to play her violin in praise and thanksgiving to you today and this coming week… for your lovingkindness in the morning and for your faithfulness in the evening. And all the glory goes to you. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Let your violin sing praises to God while you talk of his righteousness

Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome another new day with you. Thank you for your promise that I may start each day anew, anew with you. And thank you for the scripture about praising you with stringed instrument:

I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel. My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed. My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt. (Psalm 71:22-24)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here to sit with you and to pray for your daughter you love. I pray for Lindsey this day. I ask that you hear her as she praises you on her violin. I ask that you reveal more of your faithfulness to her this day. Provide her with many opportunities to talk of your righteousness throughout the day today. Let her sing and shout for joy over you so others ask her what is the reason for her joy! And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Play skillfully on the strings!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Looking outside I see another gorgeous morning to start of another glorious day with you. Thank you for the cool breeze blowing our small pinwheel in the midst of our flowers. Thank you for the wind that blows the small brown “helicopter” seeds off the trees in our back yard. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. (Psalm 33:1-3)

Lord, I’m here again. It is nice to sit with you and to relax. And so I am here to pray for your daughter. Yes, today I pray that you would rejoice in the Lord and give him all the praise. Sing to him today with your stringed instrument. Play a new song for him. Play skillfully with bursts of joy. No need to play quietly today, play for him with all your might. And the glory is all to him. Lord, we give you all the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
