Be zealous … be zealous for God!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. (John 2:14-17)
Yes, this was written in the Psalms:
9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. (Psalm 69:9)
Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual on behalf of your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today I pray for you to be zealous. I have watched how you are totally zealous for your violin and your music. Zealousness is one of your gifts! And today I pray that this zealousness would extend to your relationship with God. Lord, I ask that you open up opportunities for Lindsey to be zealous for you! And we will give you all the glory. The glory is all yours. I ask all this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
God dwells in you, lives with you and walks with you every day
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Good Morning! Good Afternoon! Good Evening! Good Night! What word is common to all these things that many of us say each day? Good! And it is indeed a well placed word! The very first chapter of the first book of the Bible speaks of creation and over and over it mentions how it was GOOD… until the sixth day when God created man … after that day God thought it was VERY good! So, thank you Lord for creation and for reminding us that it indeed good. And thank you for the two scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (2 Corinthians 6:16)
God had indeed said it in Ezekiel:
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Ezekiel 37:27)
As well as in Leviticus:
12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. (Leviticus 26:12)
Lord, I’m here to pray for your daughter again as I do every day. Lindsey, today I join with you in acknowledging that we are God’s people, something Paul echoed from Ezekiel. But today I pray for you as being the temple of the living God. Yes, God dwells in you, lives with you and walks with you every day. I pray that knowing this would be so obvious to you that it becomes part of a normal day of life for you. Whether you are home having fun with your family or on the other side of the globe inspiring thousands with your music, I pray that you always would sense God’s presence there with you. I pray that those around you would see this in you as well. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
