Dividing Your Loyalty between the World and God makes you Unstable
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the way our bodies are designed to keep us safe. We can touch something hot and back away. We can smell something “rotten” and discard it. We can see a danger approaching and react immediately. And thank you for giving us your Word as our guide, especially the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (James 1:5-6,8)
Lord, I’m here again on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, God has told you that you can ask for wisdom. He promised to hear and grant your request. And I will join you in this request. Lord, I ask that you grant Lindsey much wisdom for many around her are watching her and you are her generous God. And Lindsey, God also is reminding you to have faith in him and to never waver. Take care to not be double minded and divide your loyalty between God and the world, for this will eventually lead to living an unstable life where ever you go. Trust in God only. Don’t waver or waves on the sea will toss you around and you will be unstable. Lord, help Lindsey to stay stable. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Trust and Delight in the Lord and He Grants You the Desires of Your Heart
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a new day. Thank you for the overnight rain. Thank you for my car which for over two decades has gotten me around my city. And thank you for the scripture for my prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. (Psalm 37:3-6)
Lord, I’m here again as usual to begin today’s prayer for Lindsey, your daughter who delights herself in you. Lindsey, today’s prayer may be for things you already know and do, but we are told to remind each other of such things, so join me in this prayer. I pray that you continue to trust in the Lord. I pray that you continue to do what is right and good each day and that God will take care of you as you dwell in this land. Let those around you notice your faith and your integrity. I pray that you continue to delight yourself in the Lord. I ask that God would once again fill you full of his joy as you delight in him. I ask that he grant you the desires of your heart. Make a commitment Lindsey! Decide that you will trust in God and that you will go the way he shows you, and he will bring it to pass. He will publicly defend your just cause. Lord, let Lindsey’s righteousness shine brightly, as bright as the noonday sun. Let all those around her see this light. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Delight in God’s Way as He Upholds You with His Hand
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for my breath. Thank you for my life. Thank you for lungs that keep working even while I sleep. Thank you for a heart that keeps on beating day and night without fail. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)
Lord, I’m here to lift up Lindsey to you. She strives to read your Word each and every day. She loves you Lord. She trusts you and expects that you will establish her way and order her steps for she delights in your way. And so today I ask that you watch over your daughter. I ask that you arrange things for her to be just so! Just the way you would have her go. Light the way before her so that she can see it clearly. If she stumbles and begins to fall, catch her Lord. Hold her in your hand so that she not be cast down. Protect her so that she will not fall flat on her face. I ask that you place people in her path today who will encourage her. I ask that you fill her heart with your Joy today. And we will give the glory to you Lord. Glory! I ask this all in the name and with the authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Don’t Panic! Just rely, trust and believe in Jesus!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Good morning and Happy Day! I welcome this new day, anew with you. I rejoice in this day praising you. Yes, good morning, happy day and thank you for your precious Word which reminds us how we too are precious as we believe in Jesus who is the precious cornerstone of our life that Peter refers to, as Isaiah foretold about him:
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (1 Peter 2:4-6)
Consider this scripture from Isaiah:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Isaiah 28:16)
Lord, it’s me! I’m here! I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, today I was happy to find out that the button that some people wear is Biblical. “Don’t Panic!” Yes, indeed, as you look around you Isaiah said it … don’t panic and rush around. Don’t panic and make haste! Keep Calm and Believe! Perhaps the button that people are wearing needs the word “Believe” added to it! Lindsey, you have already acknowledged Jesus publicly. I pray that you will cling to him today. I pray that you will believe in him, the precious cornerstone to your life. I pray that Jesus will always be precious to you. I pray that as you firmly believe in him, that he will give you confidence and not allow you to be put to shame. I pray that as you trust and rely on Jesus, that you would never feel the need to panic and would never be confounded! And we will give the glory to God. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
(W) Wife of Noble Character
Lindsey, today, for the letter W, I am reading and rereading about the characteristics of a Wife of noble character. Many of these characteristics would be good to imitate, and you already are doing so for many of them. I pray that you would continue to be a virtuous role model for the young women of this age!
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for opening my eyes and my ears as well as my head and my heart to what you are doing in the world today. Thank you for the many godly people you have surrounded me with. And thank you for constantly being with Lindsey and encouraging her to continue to be a role model for young women today, with many of the characteristics mentioned in Proverbs 31:25-31:
- Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come.
- She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
- She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
- Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
- Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
- Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
- Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Lord, here I am. I am ready to start my next day’s prayer for Lindsey, the daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that God would gift you with more than mere entertainment talents, more than dancing skills, more than musical giftings. I pray that God would gift you the many characteristics that Proverbs speaks of referring to a wife of noble character. I pray that you would have the courage to remain virtuous in the midst of a culture that often is not. I pray that God would give you strength and honor as your clothes, and that you would look to the future with great joy and rejoicing. I pray that wisdom and kindness would be what others hear when you speak. I pray that your example will help those who are idle and bored to see that there is a better way. I pray that the young women today would call you blessed and that young men would praise you. I pray that you would excel in virtue ignoring favor and beauty but clinging to a reverent fear of the Lord. I pray that you would be rewarded for all that you do and that your deeds would bring you praise. 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
Trust in the Lord and his mercy and lovingkindness will surround you
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for another interesting day with more “coincidences” that just had to be you! Thank you for letting me be normal again today (defined as: feeling your presence all around me all day). And thank you for the scripture to base my prayer for Lindsey today:
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. (Psalm 32:10)
Lord, I’m back. Out of breath, but couldn’t wait to be here with you so that I could begin another prayer for your daughter you love! Lindsey, today I pray that you will always trust in the Lord. And I pray that the Lord would show you his mercy. That you would be surrounded by his mercy and lovingkindness. I pray that you will feel God’s faithful love all around you all day today as well as tomorrow. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Blessing: May you see how good the Lord is
Lindsey, since you have placed your trust in the Lord, I bless you and pray that you will see the goodness of the Lord. I pray that he will show you how good and wonderful he is to all those who take shelter in him, as you have.
Heavenly Father, good morning! I welcome another day surrounded by your creation. I just saw an interesting documentary on the Monarch butterfly which migrates from Canada to Mexico and back, and the experts were wondering how they can navigate to precisely the right place and the right time (as well as how they can even make that LONG trip at all). And so I thank you for the beautiful butterflies that you created for us enjoy! And thank you also for the scripture that I am to use to bless your daughter today:
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. (Psalm 34:8)
Lord, I am here again. I am here to bless your daughter who loves and trusts in you. Lindsey, today I bless you with all the good gifts that the Lord showers upon you. You have but a taste of how good the Lord is. I pray that you hunger and thirst for him and that the Lord will continue to bless you in this each and every day. And we will give the glory to the Lord. All the glory is yours Lord. Amen (more…)
Blessing: May the Lord be Your Hope and Confidence so You May Bear Much Good Fruit
I pray this blessing over you today Lindsey. As you trust in the Lord, may he be your hope and your confidence. May you be like a good tree planted along a river, with solid roots so that you may withstand both heat and drought maintaining your youth and bearing much good fruit.
Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for this world and everything in it. Thank you for the many many little things that often go by unnoticed. Thank you for coffee, and not just one kind of coffee but dozens and dozens of kinds. Thank you for cocoa and all the varieties of hot chocolate. Thank you for mornings sitting with you with a coffee or hot chocolate. And thank you for the scripture to base my blessing over your daughter this day:
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
Lord, here I am. It’s me! I am here before your throne to pray for your daughter you love. I am here to bless her again this day. Lindsey, may you be blessed for trusting in the Lord. May he be your hope and confidence. May you be like a tree planted along side a stream with deep roots fed by its water. May you never be bothered by heat nor by drought. May your leaves always stay green and may you never stop producing good fruit. And we will give glory to the Lord. All the glory is his. I bless you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Troubles? Trust in the Lord who is good!
Hello Heavenly Father! Thank you for watching over my family yesterday. I know you will watch over us today as well. Thank you for always being with us and never leaving us. Thank you for being our guide, for lighting a path for us to follow. Thank you Lord. And thank you for highlighting this scripture for me so that I would use it as a basis for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)
Yes, it’s me here before your throne. I am here again to lift up your talented daughter who puts all her trust in you. I ask that you care for her in good times as well as days of trouble. Be her refuge, be her stronghold Lord, for we know that you are good. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
