(L) Lydia – Support and Encouragement
Lindsey, today I pray that you would be bit like Lydia. I pray that you would be able to support and encourage the people God puts in your path. I pray that you even would offer a temporary place to stay for those on a godly mission, just like Lydia begged Paul and his companions to stay at her house!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome this day with you. I welcome this for it is a day you have made. The sun rises as you ask it to. The sunrise itself is majestic and full of your glory. What artist could devise a more majestic start for the day? Thank you for the bits of your glory that you place all around us. And thank you for Lydia who welcomed Paul into her home as the woman in the Bible for the letter L:
And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us. (Acts 16:15)
Lord, I am here again. I have come to sit with you and to pray once more for your daughter Lindsey. I pray that you would fill her heart as you had filled Lydia’s heart. I pray that you would give Lindsey opportunities to support and encourage others and even the chance to offer her home as a place godly people on a mission could stay! And all the glory is yours lord. The glory is all yours! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

(F) Female Disciples (MANY Good Role Models)
Lindsey, you too are a disciple of Jesus, as you have acknowledged him publicly. I pray that you would stay true to him regardless of circumstances that you may not fully understand, just as his female disciples followed him to the cross, to the empty tomb and beyond. I pray that God would grant you great insight and discernment through all the days of your journey.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. I welcome another day. Another day with you. A day anew … anew with you! Thank you for sleep which lets my mind and body relax and rest. Thank you for waking me in the morning and presenting me with another day filled with your glory and beauty. And thank you for the scripture to use for the letter F, for Female Disciples:
And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance. (Luke 8:1-3)
Lord, here I am to pray for your daughter Lindsey. She is one of your female disciples today and so the scriptures for today are very applicable. Lindsey, I pray that you would continue to be a disciple of Jesus. I pray that the women in scriptures would be role models for you. They followed Jesus all the way to the cross and then even to the empty tomb! They ministered to him and supported him. I pray that you too would follow Jesus to the cross and the resurrection and that you too would be a role model for the young women today. And 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

Blessing: May God Restore, Strengthen and Place you on a Firm Foundation
Lindsey, today I bless you. God has called you into his glory. May he restore and support you, confirm and make you perfect and may he strengthen and place you on a firm foundation.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being so very near to me these past few days, helping me to collect 40 blessings pulled directly from scriptures to pray over your daughter you love. I now eagerly anticipate each day when I will get to pray each of these blessings over you Lindsey. And today’s blessing comes from this scripture:
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10)
Lord, I am exceedingly happy to be here with you so that I can begin my next blessing over your daughter Lindsey, for you have called her to your eternal glory by Jesus Christ. Lindsey, you may suffer a while (actually it is a promise, not just a maybe), but afterwards you will be restored and strengthened as God makes you perfect and establishes you. I pray this blessing over you today and we can give the glory to God. All the glory goes to him. Amen (more…)
