Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for soap. Thank you for the means to clean ourselves and our clothes. Thank you for the example of how we can feel more refreshed after we are washed. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you. I came to rest. I need your rest. It is one thing that I ask for quite often. And I now am asking for your rest for Lindsey. She seems to be in the spotlight one way or another constantly. She has so much to plan, so much to remember, so much to actually DO! I ask that you continue to surround her with people who can help her stay refreshed… refreshed in you. I ask that you nudge her to pause now and then to just sit with you. And then I ask that you let her feel your rest come upon her. And we will give you the glory. The glory is yours. I ask this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
Heavenly Father, I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for the majestic sunrise. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness in that each sunrise can be different, some pink, some orange, some with wisps of clouds, others with a mist or a fog. Different from an island or from the bottom of a mountain. Different from within a dense forest or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Different in summer and in winter. Even near nonexistent near the north or south pole! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today that reminds us that Jesus promised that his yoke was easy:
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)
Lord, what an exciting time. Tomorrow I finish my first 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey with a prayer based on the letter Z. Today I am happy to pray for Lindsey, that you would remind her that your yoke is easy. It is not something to be avoided at all costs. Remind her that your burden is light – it is not a heavy burden. Let her see this with her own eyes and her own heart today. I ask that today she would find your yoke extremely easy and your burden very light. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
