Celebrate because you understand God’s Word!

Hello Heavenly Father. Thank you for keeping my heart thankful. Thank you for helping me to see the many blessings that are poured on my family. Thank you for the many godly friends you surround me with. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved. And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them. (Nehemiah 8:10-12)

Lord, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, today’s prayer is a joyful prayer, for God’s Word is telling you to not grieve but to go and celebrate because you understand the words that have been declared unto you in God’s Word! Be filled with the joy of the Lord which is your strength. I also pray that others will see your joy in how you celebrate and that you will have a chance to tell them it is because you understand the words! I pray that you can help them to understand God’s Word as well. And together 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…)

Keep your heart pure with God’s Word and he will not let you wander

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the new day. Thank you for the mist in the air – I like to refer to it as liquid air because it isn’t quite raining, yet you get wet! And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. (Psalm 119:9-10)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey and am ready for our next prayer. Lindsey, today I pray that you would maintain a pure life. I pray that you would guard your heart by daily immersing yourself in God’s Word. I pray that you would seek after God with all your heart, and I ask that God would help you to stay on the path he sets before you and not wander off. I pray that God would protect you and not allow you to stray from his commandments. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Turn to God With All Your Heart and Soul

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for a fresh new day. Thank you for a refreshing day anew with you. Thank you for the stars above early this morning and for the cool clean crisp air. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

And the Lord thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. (Deuteronomy 30:9-10)

Lord, I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you with all her heart. I ask that you speak to her today. I ask that you let her hear your voice, especially while she is reading your Word. Lindsey, I pray that you will continue to strive to not only read God’s commandments and statutes written in the Word, but that you would keep and obey them.  I pray that your whole heart and soul would turn to the Lord as you strive to follow him. I pray that you hear his voice today – that you hear it clearly, for he is rejoicing over you for good just as he rejoiced over your fathers! And we will give all the glory to God. The glory all goes to God. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Be a hear-er and a keep-er! Hear it and Keep it!

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the many tiny miracles that are part of each day. Thank you for holding everything together. Thank you for being in control. And thank you for the scripture for Lindsey’s prayer today:

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. (Luke 11:28)

Lord, it’s me. I’m here on behalf of your daughter you love. God is blessing you Lindsey for reading (and hearing) his Word each and every day. He delights in how you strive to not only hear his Word but also to KEEP IT! Lord, your daughter is a HEARer and a KEEPer! I ask that you bless her for this. I ask that you fill her with your joy so she would be happy indeed. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

The Joy of the Lord is your Strength

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the wind. We know not where it comes from nor where it goes. We cannot see it yet we know it is there. Thank you for the wind to be an example for us in these ways. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the Lord your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:8-10)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you and loves reading your word each day. Lindsey, this is a good scripture to remember as you read God’s Word and see how you may not have been living it out fully. Nehemiah, Ezra and the Levites saw the people weeping as they heard the Word of God. They told the people to not weep but to celebrate for a day when you gain understanding of God’s Word is holy. Lindsey, may each day be holy for you as you gain understanding to what you read in God’s Word. Rejoice knowing that the JOY OF THE LORD is your strength! 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…)

Where is your delight?

Good morning heavenly Father. Thank you for another day with you. Thank you for a day of delight. Thank you for your Word which is my delight. And thank you for the scripture that speaks of this:

I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word. (Psalm 119:14-16)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of your daughter you love. I’m lift Lindsey up to you Lord. Put delight into her heart Lord. As she reads your Word every day, put more delight in her heart. Let it be something she looks forward to in her day. Let her long for that time to spend with you in your Word.  And we 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…)

Watch who you sit, stand and walk with. Delight in God’s Word.

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for quiet. Thank for the still moments in the day and the night that we can pause to meditate upon your Word. Thank you for this delight. Thank you for bringing meaning to the words in your Word and bringing it alive for us. And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey today:

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (Psalm 1:1-2)

Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. She strives to avoid walking according to the advice of the ungodly. Lord, I ask that you surround her with godly advisers. Lord, I ask that people she trusts will give her godly advice. Lindsey, I pray that you find delight in God’s Word each day as you read it. I pray that you find joy in meditating over it’s words. I pray that you find ways to rejoice in how God’s Word shows you how to live. I ask that the Lord would light the way before you today and give you the courage you need to walk on that path. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Read scripture out loud. Listen to it being read aloud to you!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for creating this magnificent universe just for us. Thank you for the tiny and for the huge. Huge as in stars… and galaxies! And thank you for the scripture to use for this prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter. Lindsey, today’s scripture is interesting in that it seems to talk about having scriptures read out loud! This resonates well with me because for over six years a tiny group of us has been meeting every weekday morning in a coffee shop or restaurant to read scriptures out loud around our table. It is quite amazing how much reading a passage out loud helps … especially if you also hear it read out loud TO YOU! And so that seems to be what I am to pray for. Lindsey, I pray that you will be able to read scriptures out loud with a tiny group that you trust. I pray that you will be able to LISTEN as others in the tiny group read passages of scripture aloud.  I pray that speaking and hearing them will bring you further understanding. I pray that this also will be a way to get together with others regularly with God’s Word! 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…)

Seven Days Without God’s Word Makes One Weak :)

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for persistent vision which is important to how we see things. Thank you for peripheral vision which lets us notice things we aren’t even looking at. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter and the chance to use word play for the title of this prayer:

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

Jesus was referring back to the book of Deuteronomy:

And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. (Deuteronomy 8:3)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter you love. She has set a goal to read your Word each and every day, so Lord, I ask that you make her strong, not weak. Lindsey, I also pray that you will also strive to remain humble in the midst of seemingly unceasing flattery from fans, because the glory belongs with God, your generous God who gifted you with so many talents and skills. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

Continue reading the Word every day to be a true disciple of Jesus

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. It is so interesting how music can be soothing, can be invigorating, can be inspiring. It is interesting that our ears can pick up all the fine details of music, how loud, how fast, what pitch, harmony, melody and so much more. Thank you for music Lord. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter:

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:31-32)

Lord, I am here. I am here to lift up your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, today I pray that you will continue what you stated as your New Year’s resolution … that you would find time each day to read the Word, to read the Bible.  If there is no time, I pray that you will be willing to make the time. I pray that this would remain a priority for you today and the rest of the year. I pray that God would meet with you each time you open the Bible and that he would reveal the truth to you making you free. And all the glory we give to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
