Fret at night? Fuss about too early in the morning? NOT!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the wind. Gusts of wind. Cold blasts of wind. Fierce WIND! And then calm (for just 7 seconds, then more wind!) Thank you for letting it be a reminder that what we cannot see can be more real than what we see. Thank you for allowing me to know that you are right here with me even though I cannot see you with my eyes, for my heart can see you! And thank you for the scripture for your daughter Lindsey:
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. (Psalm 127:2)
Lord, I am here again. I’m here as usual to begin a new prayer for your daughter you love. Lindsey, God loves you so much that he will give you peaceful sleep. He loves you so much that he calls you “beloved”. He loves you so much that he goes “out of his way” (so to speak) to remind you of things that are important. And today, he reminds you to not worry. Don’t get anxious about the next day, waking up too early to fuss about trying to get everything “just right”. He points out that perhaps staying up late moaning about what happened that day may not be a good idea. And so I ask God to watch over you while you sleep. I ask that he give you pleasant dreams and a peaceful moment when you awake. I ask that he be with you late at night reminding you that everything is OK because he is in charge, he has control, and you can just go to sleep! I pray for you Lindsey … that you would be content each day regardless of the circumstances. I pray sweet contentedness over you. 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…)
Show your gratitude and appreciation day by day
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…)
(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
(T) Tryphena and Tryphosa – dedicated hard workers for Christ
Lindsey, today we read about two women who likely were sisters that are mentioned only once in all of the Bible, yet that one time they are saluted for being hard workers for Christ. I pray that you too may be saluted in this way!
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for cinnamon. Thank you for the wide variety of spices. Thank you that we can think of them so that we can have the saying “spice of life“. And thank you for the scripture for the sisters mentioned in Romans:
Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labour in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which laboured much in the Lord. (Romans 16:12)
Lord, I am here again. With joy I am here to begin today’s prayer for your daughter. Lindsey, today I pray that you would continue to work hard for Jesus, just as Tryphena and Tryphosa did. I pray that others would salute you for being faithful to Jesus even more than applauding you for your music. And the glory is all God’s. We give him the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
