The daughters of Zelophehad

Numbers 27:1-7 (NLT)
One day a petition was presented by the daughters of Zelophehad—Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Their father, Zelophehad, was a descendant of Hepher son of Gilead, son of Makir, son of Manasseh, son of Joseph. These women stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the tribal leaders, and the entire community at the entrance of the Tabernacle. “Our father died in the wilderness,” they said. “He was not among Korah’s followers, who rebelled against the Lord; he died because of his own sin. But he had no sons. Why should the name of our father disappear from his clan just because he had no sons? Give us property along with the rest of our relatives.”

So Moses brought their case before the Lord. And the Lord replied to Moses, “The claim of the daughters of Zelophehad is legitimate. You must give them a grant of land along with their father’s relatives. Assign them the property that would have been given to their father.”

From Wikipedia:

In regard to the names of the daughters, scholars largely are in agreement; Malah means “fat”/”infirmity”, Noah means “movement”, Milcah means “queen”, Tirzah means “pleasing”, Hoglah means “dancing.”

Our Father in heaven,
Like the daughters of Zelophehad, the women intercessors of Mississippi are varied. They come from all circumstances. Yet, they look to You as their Father and their provision. Your name is Jehovah-jireh, “Yahweh will provide.”
We thank You that they are all children of God, set apart for His purpose with full rights and privileges, through faith in Christ Jesus. Restore any inheritance that is languishing. If any keys to their inheritance have been lost or stolen, help them to find them. If any of the keys have been pawned, we claim the Blood of Jesus as the price of redemption.

You, O God, sent abroad plentiful rain;
You confirmed Your inheritance when it was parched and weary.

We thank You that the languishing inheritance is being restored, and the lost keys recovered for the female intercessors in Mississippi! Amen.
Psalm 68:9 AMP, Galatians 3:26
