Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for my life. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my beating heart and my mind that is functioning so well. And thank you for your scripture for this prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: (Exodus 19:5)
Lord, it’s me. Yep, I came to sit with you again. And right now I’d like to lift up Lindsey to you. She loves you Lord. She strives to obey your voice and keep your covenant. I ask that today you would show her how she is a peculiar treasure to you. Show her how special she is to you today. And we will give all the glory to you. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the rains needed by the plants and animals. Thank you for the sun for warmth as well as for light in the day. And thank you for the lights in the night – the moon and all the stars. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40)
Yes, the book of Jonah says this:
17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jonah 1:17)
Yes, but why did Jesus refer to Jonah at all? It was because the scribes and Pharisees had an attitude problem and were demanding a sign or miracle right then and there! Thus this scripture is a good follow up from the prayer of yesterday where I prayed that you would watch over your heart that it would not become hardened:
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (Matthew 12:34-39)
Lord, I’m back (as usual). I am ready to begin another prayer for Lindsey. Today’s scripture is interesting on many levels. We begin by hearing Jesus refer to his coming death, burial and resurrection by comparing it to the prophet Jonah. Jonah thought he was running away from God, but he ended up being the sign for the ages! But I think it it is just as interesting to see what had just happened before Jesus said this. He saw the generation around him and warned them to look at their hearts! He even gave them an easy way to tell if their hearts were filled with good or with evil.. just look at what they say and do. And so once again I pray for your heart Lindsey. Jesus considered your heart as essential and said that you could store up good or evil in it. I pray that today you store up much good in your heart. I pray that each day you actively look for ways that you can store up good treasures in your heart to keep it fully filled. I also pray that you always will pay attention to what you say because Jesus said it comes from the abundance of your heart. I pray that you will always use this as an early detection system for your heart. If you notice evil coming out of your mouth, I pray that you would find time to pause and refill your heart with good treasures again. 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 (more…)
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for revitalized friendships. Thank you for coffeeshops that allow conversations off to the side yet not in private. Thank you for your Word that you gave to us and thank you to all those who kept it intact and translated it into our own language! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as I am every day, on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray a big prayer for you today. I pray that God would help you to see where your treasures really are. Are they a collection of beautiful violins? Are they a throng of people screaming with enjoyment during one of your performances? Is your treasure racking up a billion views on YouTube? All these seem to be a result of God’s favor on your life. Yet, Jesus today seems to be reminding you to take care! Be careful about what exactly you treat as your ultimate treasure! I pray that God would give you many opportunities in the coming week for you to DO THINGS that matter for God’s kingdom. I pray that God would open doors for you in this regard. I pray that you would recognize these opportunities and that you would have the courage to walk through the doors, that you can bravely walk on the path God shows you! Look into your heart today Lindsey. Double-check it. It is following after what you treasure most. I pray that today you would be accumulating treasures in heaven. I pray that you will set out to store up more heavenly treasures this day. I pray that the desires of your heart would be heavenly today, and that it would be evident to all those around you. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
