Daily blessings and prayers from Scripture.

Colossians 1:15,19 [God’s beloved Son] is the image of the invisible God, … 19 for in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.

Colossians 1:13 For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves…

Psalm 18:16 The psalmist wrote, “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters.”

Psalm 116:1,2 I love the LORD, because He hears my voice and my supplications. 2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him.

Matthew 6:20 Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

May you know God, personally and intimately, just as He desires you to, for then you will be able to firmly resist the enemy, and those he influences, when they come against all that God stands for with desecration, corruption, and flattery for those who violate the covenant of God. Daniel 11

May you be wise in the Lord and instruct many, giving understanding and insight to endure tribulation and withstand persecution. May you know that the harm the enemy intends for destruction and evil will be turned by God to good, bringing refinement and purification. He will have a spotless people, being cleansed until the appointed time, which will come, for the Lord has declared it. Daniel 11

May you realize that the Son of God appeared to destroy the devil's work, for the person who makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, but the person who has allowed the Word of God to reside in them cannot live a persistently sinful life. All things are become new for them; they are a new creation, having been born into the family of God. 1 John 3

May you love one another, avoiding the error of Cain, who murdered his brother, Abel, because his own choices were selfish. His actions were influenced by the enemy, who sought to kill and destroy the righteousness that was in Abel through his love for God. 1 John 3

As your caring Father, I anticipate lavishing My gifts upon you, gifts that exceed your expectations, presents that are greater and richer than your wildest imaginings. However, just as not all things are age-appropriate for a specific child, nor is every tool useful in a given job, and neither does every piece of jewelry compliment the chosen ensemble, even so not all that you wish for and desire will be given immediately.
I delight in giving you the desires of your heart, and I know what is required for you to receive and enjoy what you desire in a safe and responsible manner. Understand that when you seek Me for what you desire, I will start preparing you and positioning you to receive it.
Even as you would not give a firearm to your child until they have shown the needed responsibility in other areas and successfully complete a safety training course, so I will take you through circumstances to bring up and reveal what is in your heart, allowing you to give it to Me to remove, that you may operate in My love rather than in your pride.

May you lay down your life for your fellow believers, as Jesus Christ laid down His life for you, not merely with words but in truth with actions, not because of merit or worth but from mercy and love, for this is how we set our conscience at rest in His presence whenever we are condemned, for God is greater than our feelings, knowing everything. 1 John 3

May you be obedient to God's command to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as He commanded you. Those who obey His commands live in Him and He in them. You will live free from any condemnation from your conscience, having confidence before God and receiving from Him anything you ask, because you are obedient and pleasing to Him. You know this by the Spirit He gives you. 1 John 3

May you rejoice with those who say to you, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122

May you pray for the peace of the chosen city of God, that He may protect you and give you peace, for the sake of the house of the Lord our God. Psalm 122
