Until I saw with my own eyes!

Heavenly Father, thank you for teeth. Thank you for how our teeth help so much with eating. I can see how hard eating would be without our teeth. Thank you Lord for our wonderfully designed bodies! And thank you for the scripture (about the Queen of Sheba) for today’s prayer:

Then she said to the king: “It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. However I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes; and indeed the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame of which I heard. (1Kings 10:6‭-‬7 NKJV)

Lord, it’s me … I am here. Thank you coming to chat with me regarding today’s prayer for the daughter you love, for your Lindsey! Thank you for the reference to a TRUE REPORT! Lindsey, I pray that the Lord would grant you much discernment so that you would know when a “true report” is actually true. I pray that truth would be part of you so much that deception would be kept far from you. I pray that the Lord would be your guide and would guide you into all truth:

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16:13 ESV)

I pray that your eyes would be open to see the truth around you, just as the Queen of Sheba saw the truth with her own eyes. And together let’s give God the glory. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.

Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. (1Kings 10:6-7)

and…

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13)

What do you want?

Good evening Heavenly Father. Thank you for chocolate. And for the many ways that I enjoy it! Chocolate cream pie. Chocolate covered nuts. Hot chocolate (with marshmallows). Chocolate ice cream. Chocolate chip cookies. Thank you for chocolate. Thank you for thinking of us as you created this universe … thinking about things we might enjoy! And thank you for the scriptures for this prayer … this prayer that is asking your daughter you love dearly, your Lindsey, “What do you want?”

Two blind men were sitting by the road. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” 31 The crowd scolded them to get them to be quiet. But they shouted even more loudly, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 32 Jesus stopped, called them, and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. (Matthew 20_30-37 NET)

And again, in a very odd sequence of events (right after Jesus tells them how he soon will be killed, they seem oblivious to this, and just want to ask for something for themselves … and, boy, this really is something!):

32 They were on the way, going up to Jerusalem. Jesus was going ahead of them, and they were amazed, but those who followed were afraid. He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them what was going to happen to him. 33 “Look, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and experts in the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles. 34 They will mock him, spit on him, flog him severely, and kill him. Yet after three days, he will rise again.”

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him and said, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask.” 36 He said to them, “What do you want me to do for you?” 37 They said to him, “Permit one of us to sit at your right hand and the other at your left in your glory.” 38 But Jesus said to them, “You don’t know what you are asking! Are you able to drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I experience?” 39 They said to him, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “You will drink the cup I drink, and you will be baptized with the baptism I experience, 40 but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give. It is for those for whom it has been prepared.” (Mark 10:32-40 NET)

And another blind man called to Jesus, who asked him that same question:

46 They came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus the son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Many scolded him to get him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man and said to him, “Have courage! Get up! He is calling you.” 50 He threw off his cloak, jumped up, and came to Jesus. 51 Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied, “Rabbi, let me see again.” 52 Jesus said to him, “Go, your faith has healed you.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the road. (Mark 10:46-55 NET)

And the Old Testament also includes several instances of someone being asked, “What do you want?” And seeing this, I come before you Lord. I come to sit with you, to speak to you, to listen to you, to enjoy your presence here with me. And, Lindsey, it seems that I am to pray this same question over you now. Jesus asks, “What do you want me to do for you Lindsey?”  Take time to sit with him today.  As the first scripture says, He is moved by compassion regarding your request and he observes your faith (as noted in the final scripture). Jesus loves sitting with you Lindsey and today it seems he is inviting you to come and sit for awhile and let him know what you want him to do for you. As you are reading this let’s give him our praise and give him the glory. I pray and ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.

32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?

33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. (Matthew 20:30-37 KJV)

and…

32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,

33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

36 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared. (Mark 10:32-40 KJV)

and…

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way. (Mark 10:46-55 KJV)

God loves YOU!

Good evening Heavenly Father. Thank you for clarity! Thank you for bringing clarity to my mind. Thank you for giving us your Word and bringing meaning and understanding each time we read it. Thank you for all the scribes who so diligently, carefully and accurately copied it to new manuscripts over and over again until just 560 years ago when Bibles were being printed with the new printing press! And thank you for allowing me to actually have some Bibles that were printed almost 300 years ago! Thank you for letting me how 150 years ago Bibles were published that were not only accurate but also beautiful, even the front and back covers! (see My Old Bibles). Thank you for your Word and for this scripture to pray over Lindsey, your daughter you love:

Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, because God loves a cheerful giver. (2Corinthians 9:7 NET)

Lord, I’m here.  I’m here to praying this truth over your daughter Lindsey. Yes, Lindsey, I am praying this promise over you now. I see this as a promise for you because I see you giving of yourself to others with such joy and enthusiasm. I see you stirring the hearts of those who see and hear you. I see you sharing your story about what is important to you. And I see you doing all this because it is in your heart … you can’t help but share your joy with others. And others see this. They see a cheerful GIVER (focusing on you rather than on the giving).  And that is a delight to the Lord … he sees this too and he loves YOU just as this scripture promises. Lord, I ask that you shower your love over Lindsey this day. Fill her with your love to overflowing. Let your love in her over flow to others where ever she goes. Let her feel your love just bubbling up within her. And I give you the glory Lord. The glory is not on us but on on you. All the glory. All the time. It all is yours Lord. I pray and ask this all in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Jesus Loves You. He Died for You. He Rose and So Now May Others See Jesus in Your Eyes

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for shoes (and socks). Thank you for protecting my feet everywhere I walk. Thank you for walking with me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin this days prayer for your daughter you love. And the scripture for this prayer refers to your love for her. Lindsey, Jesus loves you. He gave himself for you by being whipped and crucified. He loves you so much that he said it was like a joy to do this for you*. But though he did die for you, he also rose again. Not only that, but as you live by faith in Jesus he is living in you! So that is the reason that I can pray that you may live your life in a way that others can see Jesus in your eyes.  And why not!? He is living in you after all! So let today be a special day where Jesus makes himself evident within you. And we will give the glory to him. The glory is all his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

* Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Who in your tour group can serve the others the most? You can win this one Lindsey!

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for helping me to keep a grateful heart. Thank you for reminding us how important it is to be thankful. And thank you for the scripture to use for your daughter Lindsey:

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Galatians 5:13-14)

This was said in Leviticus:

18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:18)

Lord, it’s me. I am here as usual to begin a new days prayer for Lindsey, your daughter you love. Lindsey, you were called to freedom, called to liberty. I pray that you will each day find ways to use your freedom to serve others. I pray that your mind would always be forgiving and your heart would always be loving, even to those who you feel do not deserve it. I pray that you would find ways to compete with those on your tours to see who can serve the others the most. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)

God’s Kingdom is in our midst within us now, though not with something observable

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for giving us your Word. Thank you for all the people who preserved it and those that diligently translated it into our language so that we could read it ourselves. Thank you for bringing us understanding as we read it so that it is not just a lot of words. And thank you for the scripture to use for the prayer today where Jesus tells us about the kingdom of God:

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)

Lord, it’s me again. I am here to pray for your daughter Lindsey. And today I pray that your kingdom would be right there within her in such a way that she can feel it. Let her know that God’s kingdom is right there within her. Lindsey, I pray that you will not need to ask for a sign because the kingdom has come in a way that is not observable, yet it is real. Lord, make your kingdom real for Lindsey today. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours Lord. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen (more…)
