Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the godly friends you placed in my life. Thank you for their support and their advice. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter:
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. (1 Timothy 5:17-18)
In Deuteronomy the scriptures say:
4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. (Deuteronomy 25:4)
And in Leviticus the scriptures say:
13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. (Leviticus 19:13)
Lord, it’s me. I am here to sit with you. I’m here to enter into your rest. I need that rest. But right now I am ready to begin my prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, it is interesting how Paul is advising Timothy by referring to scriptures! He reminds him that a laborer is worthy of being paid or rewarded. So, I pray that wherever you go, that you would find ways to reward all those travelling with you as well as helping behind the scenes. I pray that God would show you day by day ways to show your gratitude and appreciation. 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…)
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…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for words that can be set in the form of poetry. Thank you for the meters and the rhymes, even those passed down from former times. And thank you for the scripture to base my prayer for Lindsey today:
Moreover the Levites: Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, which was over the thanksgiving, he and his brethren. (Nehemiah 12:8)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I look forward to this joy each day. And today I am ready to begin my daily prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, it is interesting that praising God and offering him thanksgiving with music and song was so very important that scriptures tell us about the special people who were in charge of the thanksgiving songs! Today I pray that songs of thanksgiving and praise would become more and more part of your life. Just as music is part of you and part of your life, I pray that songs of praise and thanksgiving would also be part of your life. I pray that God would expand his many musical gifts in you to include the ability to fully integrate his Word and his music as part of everyday life. May your music open the eyes as well as the ears of those who hear it and may it be integral with your offering it as a song of thanksgiving to your God. And all the glory is his. The glory goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Lindsey, the Lord is at hand. He is near and ever present, so you need not be anxious at all. May you never be anxious since the peace of God guards your heart and your mind through Christ Jesus.
Heavenly Father, good morning. I welcome this new day with you. I thank you for the restful sleep over the night and thank you for being with me as I sleep. Thank you for being with me all day and night, for never leaving me. And thank you for the scripture to bless your daughter this day:
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-7)
Lord, here I am. I’m here to bless your daughter again today. But first I ask that you restore her health. Lord, she is a godly role model for the young women today so I ask that you keep her healthy and full of your joy. And now let me bless you Lindsey. May your gentle nature be obvious to everyone you meet. God is close to you. May those around you see this in your eyes. May your anxiety dissipate as you praise the Lord with songs and prayers of thanksgiving. May God’s peace rest in your heart and in your mind so that you may remain calm the entire day. May the Lord hear your requests today. And we will give all the glory to you Lord. The glory is all yours. I bless you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for allowing me to walk with you another day. Thank you for my breath and for my life. Thank you for being my protector and my provider. Thank you Lord. And thank you for this multifaceted scripture to form the basis of my prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you delight in:
And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. (Luke 17:11-19)
Lord it is with joy that I take time now to lift up the daughter you love. And this scripture seems to bring forth two kinds of prayers. And so this day I am praying two big prayers for Lindsey. First, I pray that you clearly show her the way you would have her go this day. And give her the courage to quickly go that way, just as all ten lepers did. They were not healed at first, but they all did begin going to the priests and only after they had gone part of the way were they healed. I pray that as Lindsey walks with you, that along the way you would give her tangible results… results that make her smile… results that put joy into her heart. And then I pray that she would be like the one who comes back to give all the glory to you Lord. As she accomplishes great things, I pray that she always will turn to give you the glory. Help her maintain a thankful heart Lord. Let thankfulness be a natural part of every hour of every day. And we will turn to you Lord to give you the glory. We will give you all the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
