The History: A couple of years ago, I started journaling my prayers and God's responses to them. I told my friends about this, they were really interested. I told my Pastor about it and he said, how about sharing those on line. When I asked God, He said, my words are for you, but not just for you. And, here we are...I hope He speaks to you in these words.

Paths...

My prayer:
God. My God. God almighty. God who became flesh, died and was raised from the dead just so I could know you.  God, I am in total awe of you.  I am humbled by your awesome power.  I am lost in the wonder of who you are. 

God, let me see even more of you.  Let me know you even more.  Let me get even closer to you.  Sometimes I think I can't take anymore, you are so overwhelming, but then, I don't care, I just want more of you.  I don't care if I can take it or not, I just want more of you. 

I love you so much.  I don't know if I even knew what it was to love before I knew you.  I don't know how I made it through one day without you.  What a huge relief to know that I never have to live another second without you. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!! All of life fades into irrelevance in your presence.  I worship you God and rest in your presence.  I revel in you God.  Be my God forever. Be mine forever God.

What God Said Tonight:
Beautiful daughter.  My love for you has no bounds.  You are my perfect child, washed in my blood and ready to take on the world. 

You have more drive than is healthy sometimes.  You are learning though. You are learning balance.  You must remember to always keep the sabbath holy.  For you, it is most important.  Without it, you will work yourself to death.  I love that you are always wanting to do more for me.  I love that you work so hard but I want you in it for the long haul.  To do that, to not burn out, you must keep my sabbath holy.  It was made for you.  It was made to give you rest and keep you balanced.  One day, no work.  Make it happen. 

You are precious to me and I will not see you destroyed by too much of a good thing.  I will not see you harmed.  I will protect you even from yourself when needed. 

You have much more to do and plenty of time to do it.  Your journey is no where near done.  I have a path and plan and it is glorious.  I wish you could see the paths that I have laid out for my children.  From the air they look like beautiful multicolored strands of light criss-crossing the world.  All different colors and sizes.  Some go for a long time.  Others are brief but so bright.  Some twist and turn and some are straight as an arrow.  And while they are all different, they all work in harmony together.  They are more together than just their separate parts.  Together they make a mosaic of light that is so beautiful. 

Your paths are so beautiful.  What you do for me is so beautiful.  I love you so much.  Always shine for me and I will always love and take care of you.  You are my beautiful lighthouse, my strand of colored light stretching out across the world. I love you daughter, sleep well.

Perfect will...

My prayer:
Mighty God, ruler of the universe.  My prayer tonight is simple God, your will be done.  I pray God, in every situation, in every struggle, in every blessing that your will be done.  I pray God for your perfect will to be accomplished.  Nothing more and nothing less than your perfect will.  I pray God that every relationship in my life be in your perfect will, every action in my life be in agreement with your perfect will, every thought be in agreement with your perfect will.  God, I consciously decide to right now to choose your perfect will for my life.  In Jesus name, amen.

What God Said Tonight:
Good prayer my daughter and one that I can easily and readily see accomplished.  You are mine.  You are what I intended you to be and as such, my will is running at full throttle in your life. 

You are about to experience even more.  You are about to experience even higher levels.  I love you so much. You will continue in my perfect will for your life.  More than what is simply good, I want perfection for you.  You are poised for perfection through the blood of my sacrifice. 

You know there is some cost, there always is.  You will have your struggles, but only as a way of perfecting my will in you.  You will have your doubts but only as a way of strengthening your faith.  You will run in the wrong direction sometimes, but only as a way of being able to better see the right direction when you  correct your route. 

I love you daughter.  Keep me first and everything I have for you is yours.  Be the blessing I made you to be and live in my perfect will every day.  You are meant to live there forever.  Bask in my light and feel its warmth.  I am your beach, your ocean and your sun.  I am everything you need.  I am your mountain and your mountain mover.  I am all that you will ever need and I am yours.  Forever.

Addicted...

My prayer:
Awesome God!!! You are so incredible!!!! Thank you for what you did today!  Thank you for your anointing on the service today God. 

I tell you God, sometimes serving you is like a drug.  Sometimes I think I am addicted to serving you.  The more I do the more I want to do.  The more I step out of my comfort zone and do what you tell me to do, the more I want to do.  I want more God. 

Today was beyond awesome.  You were beyond awesome and I want more.  Wow, I know that sounds super selfish God but I truly think I am addicted to serving you.  I am not sure that it is a bad addiction.  I mean, it usually works out pretty well.  But it also leaves me never being satisfied, always wanting more.  God I want more of you.  I want to see you do more miracles in people's lives.  I want to be a part of what you are doing even more! 

Yep, sounds like addiction.  I don't know but I know I love you and worship you.  You are my God, my Lord, my saviour and apparently my drug of choice God.

What God Said Tonight:
If you are thinking of addiction as a bad thing, than no, you are not addicted.  But if you see addiction as always wanting more of something, then absolutely girl, be addicted to me.  Be addicted to serving me.  Be addicted without shame or worry.  I will always have more for you.  You don't have to worry about ever going into withdrawal because I am infinite I always have more for you. 

Those who are willing to lose their lives for me will gain them.  Lose you life for me and you will gain it.  Trust me to always have your next step, your next new thing. I love you so much.  Your "addiction" is nothing more than an expression of that love. 

I can't get enough of you. I will spend every moment of the rest of eternity with you and it will never be enough.  I will always want more of you.  It is only just that you feel the same about me.  It is only right that in this relationship of love that we are developing that we be so crazy for each other that we can't get enough. 

In this case my dear, addiction is a good thing.  Be addicted to me as I am to you.  I will never hurt you or harm you but I will honor your sacrifice and  obedience to me.  You are my precious daughter that I love you more than you can know.  I will make sure that you are never without...anything. 

I love you daughter.  I loved this day with you.  Keep wanting more because I have more to give.

Basic principles...

My prayer:
God full of mercy and grace.  Awesome ruler, creator, healer and teacher.  God you are so awesome.  I stand in awe of your plan and your purpose.  God I could never have imagined what you are doing right now.  It is really amazing how you make everything work together.

I am sorry for all of the times I have doubted God.  I am sorry for the times that I doubted that the struggle I was going through was worth it or had any purpose.  As I look back, I can see your purpose and plan working so perfectly in my life over the last 10-15 years.  It is so beautiful.  Your plans are so beautiful.  Sometimes it is hard for me to see the beauty because I am too close to it.  When I get some distance and see the big picture of what you are doing, WOW!  You are an artist God.  You make everything work together for my good.  I mean, you really do! 

God I pray for services around the world tomorrow that your anointing be present and that you accomplish everything you have planned.  God I pray that your power be evidenced.  I pray God that people see you in a new way, a more personal way, a more real way than ever before.  I pray God that your miracles be witnessed and that they raise our faith to do even greater things for you.  I pray God that your blessing pour over us as we worship you.  I love you God and I am all yours.

What God Said Tonight;
What is the main thing that you need to remember right now?  What is the main thing that you need to do?  You are walking into the future you have prayed for and you must remember the basic principles so you don't get lost in it. 

Remember that you are my conduit and my light.  Remember that what people see is my reflection in you and that is what draws them.  Remember your job is to show up and be willing and the rest is me.  Remember that there are truly only two things you need to do, love me and love your neighbor. 

Basic principles.  Keep it simple and you won't wander off.  You are prepared and you are what I planned for you to be.  I am glad that you can see the pattern and the purpose that I have had over your life.  I want you to remember this as you doubt dreams in the future.  Even in the most confusing of times, remember that I have a purpose and a plan and I will work it out for your good.  When you doubt, revisit this time when it all is so crystal clear.  You won't always see is it so clearly but you can remember this time and trust me. 

I love you so much daughter.  You light up the world reflecting me and I want you to do it forever.  Your purpose is just begun.  Your plan is just beginning to unfold.  You are my blessed daughter who I love and trust.  Rest in that knowledge. 

Ahh, you are resting in my arms tonight truly my daughter and it is so beautiful.  Just lie back and rest.  I will cradle you and take loving care of you forever.  Stay here for a minute.  You are perfected in Christ and I love you daughter.  My sweet daughter, good night.

Insecurity...again...

My prayer:
Awesome Father, God all mighty.  Maker of the universe and lover of my soul.  God Thank you for today.  Thank you for rest God. You are my amazing God.  God I am not sure what to say tonight.  Life is generally good.  Exciting things on the horizon and nothing too tragic. 

I have all my usual insecurities.  They are kind of bad right now.  I think it is because I don't think I am good enough or what ever it is I need to be to give the message at church on Sunday.  I know that you have given me the message.  I know that it is about you and not about me.  And yet, (like how I didn't say "but" God?) what if I mess it up?  What if I can't deliver it the way you want it?  What if I get nervous and freeze?  What if, what if, what if??? 

When I use to give the message in the prisons, it was always small groups that couldn't leave no matter how good or bad it was.  This Sunday, it is my home church who I will see every week after this.  They are accustomed to great messages and great deliveries.  God, I don't want to disappoint you, Pastor Joe of the congregation.

I pray God in advance that you speak through me.  I pray God that I get out of the way so you can accomplish what you want to accomplish.  I ask God for the peace to know that you have this and I can stop worrying.  Thank you God for the opportunity.  Thank you God for all that you are doing.  Thank you God for being you and living in me.

What God Said Tonight:
What do you want to hear daughter?  You already know the answers.  This Sunday is not about you.  This Sunday is something that I have planned and prepared for.  You will be faithful and follow my lead as you do in every other kind of service. 

I love you and I will help you.  This is something I want to do. Remember daughter that I can use anyone.  I can use anyone who is willing.  I don't need you to be good enough or talented enough or charismatic enough.  I just need you to be willing and obedient.  You have shown yourself faithful.  You have shown yourself willing. 

You will see me in every act and every word.  You will see me shining and you will have peace knowing it is me.  I will give you the peace you want but really you already have it if you think about it.  Just remember to listen to all that I have told you and taught you about yourself, about me, about the Kingdom and you will have peace understanding that it is all in my hands. 

I love you and I will prosper you.  You are going to be amazed at the things you will see and do in the coming years.  You have wanted it for so long.  It won't always be easy.  Part of the waiting has been to be sure that you really want it.  There will be times when you wonder if the dream is worth it  You will question whether you really can or want to put up with the battles.  In those times, you can look back on the years of waiting.  That will remind you how much you want it and will help you get through the struggles. 

You are destined for great things.  All of my children are destined for such great things.  You are my kids and I am the creator of the universe.  How can you be made for anything but greatness? 

Find peace and rest in the assurance that this is me guiding you, directing you, talking to you and talking through you.  You are positioned perfectly and you have great things in your future.  Your future is golden and so are you. Shine.

Thankful...

My prayer:
Awesome God, thank you for today.  I love Thanksgiving!  A holiday just to be thankful, eat a lot of food and spend time with people you love, what could be better? 

God I am grateful and thankful to you for so many things from the air that I breathe, to salvation, to healing, to relationships, to opportunities, to just your amazing love for me and so much more.  God, I cannot believe how privileged I am to live this life for you.  What a huge privilege to know you, call you Father and serve you.  I am grateful beyond words. 

God I am nothing without you but with you all things are possible.  I am lost without you but you are a light to my feet and a lamp to my path and you will guide me always.  I am nothing but you are everything.  I am weak but you are strong. 

I love you Father.  Thank you for everything.

What God Said Tonight:
I love you too daughter and I am thankful for your life. I am thankful that you chose to live for me.  I am thankful that you come to spend this time with me every night.  I am thankful that you are faithful.  I am thankful for our love. 

I want you to rest a minute and let me take this tonight.  I want you to lay back and let me drive.  There are some things that need to be said.  You are on the threshold of some pretty important changes.  Some you know about and some you don't yet know about.  It is exciting and wonderful but I need you more than ever to be sensitive to my voice.  I need you more than ever to hear me and speak my words. 

You are so ready for this.  You are nervous, thinking that you are not ready but you are.  I want this for you.  I want your dreams to come true.  I love you and want to bless you everyday.  I love you and I want you to have the very best of everything.  I love you and I want you to be in constant relationship with me forever.  I want so much for you and the time is now. 

Remain thankful.  Remain grateful.  Remain humble in your knowledge that none of this you but all of it is me.  Remember to trust and believe that I can do anything and you will see such amazing things. 

I am thankful for what you are going to do.  I love you daughter.  Go rest now, I see that you exhausted and it is a little hard to get through the sleepy brain tonight.  But, I love you and you are ready for the next steps.  You will love them. 

Keep your thankful heart my child. You have much more to be thankful for in the days ahead.

SO COLD...

My prayer:
Mighty God.  Thank you for another great day.  Thank you God for a warm house and food in the cupboard. 

God there are so many tonight that don't have that and it is SO COLD!! God, on nights like tonight, all I can think about is the people who have no place to stay warm.  This is killing cold God. 

I don't know what else to do but pray and ask you God to please take care of the people tonight who don't have a warm home.  I ask you God to provide for them warmth, safety, food and a place to sleep.  I know God that the shelters we have are not enough on their own.  God I pray that you multiply the provision so that everyone is taken care of.  God I put them in your hands.  I pray God that you show me what more I should be doing.  I ask God that you show me ways to be effective in their lives.  I pray God that you show me how to better share the gifts you have given me. 

Now that I don't work downtown anymore where I use to see and talk to so many of the people who didn't have a place to live everyday, it is easy to just get busy with life and forget.  Until a night like tonight.  I sit here in my home, furnace burning and I am still wrapped up in blanket.  What are they doing God?  How will they survive the night?  They need a miracle from you God.  I pray and ask for that miracle tonight. 

Thank you God.  I love you and am so grateful I can talk to you and hear from you.

What God Said Tonight:
I love you daughter and I love the people who are downtown tonight.  There are many who have found warm havens for the night.  Many have heard my voice and have followed me to safety.  My heart breaks for those who have not, will not or cannot  hear me tonight. 

My heart breaks for those who are freezing both physically and emotionally right now.  Those who are frozen in their spirit from past hurts are the ones that pain me the most.  Sweetheart, I have heard your prayer and I will send my angels to them to help. 

I love you and love your heart to help.  You are helping more than you know.  Try not to feel guilty that you can't take away their pain, that you can't make it better for all of them.  The job is too big for any one person.  Continue to do your part. Give when I tell you to give.  Serve when I tell you to serve or when you want to serve.  Pray and leave the rest to me. 

I will continue to move my people to help and I will continue to send my angels.  Some will be saved tonight.  Not just kept warm but truly saved.  Those are the people who are most blessed tonight.  They will see the love of God through the kindness of one of my children and it will win their heart for me.  Show everyone my heart and see if they don't come to me.  I will save them. 

I love you sweet daughter and don't ever lose our heart to help.  It is a great gift and makes your service so valuable to the kingdom.

Every day...

My prayer:
Wow God!  More opportunities today!!! You are so awesome.  I think I am actually beginning to understand when you say that you will pour out the blessing that I cannot contain!  Every day, there are new opportunities!  Sometimes, it seems like more than I can take on but as long as you are pouring out, I will open up and receive.  I love these seasons God!

I have had my fair share of dry, desert seasons where nothing seems to change and it is the same old thing day after day.  Those seasons are so hard.  I like this season so much more!  Life is exciting, fun and a little crazy! 

Ok, I will stop with the exclamation points but really...this is awesome.  You are awesome.  Life with you is awesome. 

God I pray that you guide me, help me to make wise decisions about the opportunities.  I pray God that you show me which are from you and which are not.  I pray God that you prosper the work of my hands so that whatever opportunities you tell me I should take, I am successful at. 

God I love you.  Thank you again.  "Thank you" is so paltry.  I really want a new vocabulary that lets me more appropriately thank you and appreciate you.  You are just so...well you know.  You are just so YOU!

What God Said Tonight:
I love you daughter.  You know that I love you more than I can tell you or even let you know in other ways.  I love blessing you. I love opening doors for you.  I love giving you opportunities to soar above what you thought was possible.  I love that you have lost the fear of stretching beyond what you think is possible.  I love that you are trusting me more and more every day.  I love that you are trusting yourself more and more every day. 

I love what we are doing in this season.  People are being touched and changed.  People are coming to understand me in a way that is more personal and more real than ever before in these last days. 

It is so important that people know me for real in these last days.  There will be so much deception and so much manipulation.  There will be so much misdirection.  People are going to have to know my voice as well as they know their own voice, their mom's voice, their spouse's voice.  They are going to need to be able to recognize me in the dark.  There are dark days coming and they will need to be able to recognize me to follow me out. 

I have a plan and future for all of my children.  It will require that they know me for real.  It will require that they know me for themselves.  They have to know me personally.  Not what someone told them I was but know me.  They have to know my heart.  They have to be able to recognize me to follow me out. 

Daughter, keep spreading the word.  Keep talking to me and about me.  Please daughter do not grow weary in well doing.  You are doing well.  Don't grow weary.  Stay balanced and run this marathon with me. 

I will always guide you, direct you and prosper you.  Those are solid promises on your life that you don't ever have to question.  Just stick with it.  Remain faithful, every day. 

I love you so much it hurts, but in a good way! Smile my daughter and rest in preparation of another day of opportunity tomorrow.  You are my golden light shining over the ocean of my people.  Guide them to me, shine on the rocks so they can steer around them.  Be my lighthouse every day.  Love you!!!

Just love...

My prayer:
God you are good.  You are just so good.  Today, was good.  You gave me favor and it was good.  You are GOOD!  I love you God.  I praise you God.  Did I mention YOU ARE GOOD! 

Thank you for being the Lord of my life.  Thank you for teaching me how to live life better.  Thank you for making me a better person.  Thank you for never giving up on me.  Thank you for loving me when I was at my most unlovable.  Thank you for sticking with me through it all. Thank you for always being there. Thank you for always having the answer. 

YOU ARE GOOOOOOOOOD!!!

What God Said Tonight:
Thanks sweetheart!  I love you an awful lot too.  You are my precious child and the purpose of my heart.  You are the apple of my eye and I have etched you on the palm of my hand, like a tattoo, so I never am without you again.  You are my commitment forever.  You are my daughter.  You are my created daughter who I love.  You are so precious to me. 

Nights like tonight are so precious to me.  Nights where we just spend time loving on each other.  Life gets so busy and there are so many challenges, it is good to take time now and then to just love each other. 

You should do it more and not just with  me.  I have put people all around you that need that love too.  Take more time to just love.  Take time to let people know how special they are.  Take time to hear how special you are.  Take time to remember how special I am. 

Don't take any of it for granted. Your life and your experiences are extraordinary and no one else in all of creation has the same set of experiences that you do.  I have uniquely created your life for you.  You get to make choices throughout but even those choices are uniquely yours. 

Now there are aways similarities.  Without them, we could not connect and you could not connect to each other.  But even in the similarities there are aways unique experiences that make them your own. 

Cherish this life.  Cherish the people in your life.  Cherish me as I cherish you.  You are the love I have hoped for.

Maturity...

My prayer:
Hi Dad!  Thanks for today! 

The next couple days seem a little overwhelming if I think too much about it.  So much work and three days to get it done.  God I will seriously need your help.  I love you God and I am so grateful that you help me with the big stuff and the little stuff.  God thank you for getting it all done. 

Someone asked me the other day how I do it all and I told them, I pray a lot!  And that is really it God.  It is all you.  I couldn't manage half of the work, ministry, relationships if I was trying to do it on my own.  But you seem to figure it all out and give me each new thing so everything that needs to get done gets done. 

I ask you God to that again this week.  God I pray and ask that you make me effective.  I pray God that you make me successful.  I thank you God that you bless the work of my hands.  And God, in the middle of the potential craziness, help me to remember to be a blessing to the people around me.  Help me God to remember that the people are the reason behind it all.  Help me to remember that you are the purpose and the people are the reason.  I love you God.  Thank you for your help.  With you, all things really are possible.

What God Said Tonight:
You will be effective and you will be a blessing.  You are starting from the right place and I will help you. 

You haven't been asking for help much lately.  Not for the day-to-day stuff.  Please remember that I love you and I want to help you with all the areas of you life.  I want to be there for you in every struggle and challenge.  I want to help you.  But you do need to ask.

You do need to rely on me.  When you try to handle it yourself, you are trying to show that you have matured.  But true maturity in me means becoming like a child again with complete reliance and dependence on me. 

You will still have a lot to do.  I want you to be a part of what I am doing.  You have been given gifts that I want to use in the kingdom, but always remember that you need my help.  Always remember to start each day, each hour, each minute with the call of help and reliance on me. 

Let me be your strong tower.  Let me be your safe place.  Let me be the author and finisher of your faith.  Let me be your daddy. 

You don't have to be independent to be mature.  The thing is, the more dependent you are on me, the more mature you are in Christ.  Lean on me, depend on me, trust me and you will accomplish all that you have dreamed of and more.  There are many paradoxes in the kingdom of God and this is one of them.  To grow up in Christ you must be dependent like a child. 

It's time to rest now.  You will need energy this week  It won't be as crazy as you think but you will need to be rested.  I love you so much.  Let me be your rock.

Open the door...

My prayer:
Awesome Father, thank you for today. It was pretty great.  Sleeping in, great dreams, great movie, great hike, great friends, great message and great food, what more could I ask for? 

God you are the answer, always.  You are the provision, always.  You are the teacher, always.  You are the Lord, always.  I am really so grateful that I get to be your kid.  I am so grateful that I can know that whatever life throws at me, you will be there with the answer.  God, we talked about it tonight.  What do people who don't know you and don't have you in their lives do?  How do they get out of bed in the morning?  How did I before I had you and knew you? 

I don't know but I am grateful for you today. I am grateful for who you are.  I am grateful for what you do.  I am grateful that I get to be a part of the miracles that you do everyday.  I love you Father! 

God I pray over our worship services tomorrow all around the world.  God whether it is two people or two million people getting together in your name, I pray that your anointed presence accomplish what needs to be done.  God, I pray that we each have a very real experience of you during service.  I pray that we get closer to you.  I pray God that we are a blessing to you.  You are my God and I love you more than my life.  In Jesus name, amen.

What God Said Tonight:
Wait on me a minute.  You are so often in a hurry.  Even today, your sabbath, your rest day, you were running from place to place.  Wait a minute.  I need you to slow down the pace a bit so I an talk to you about something that I am serious about. 

You have given up on a dream that I need you to renew.  You have decided it isn't going to happen and I need you to reopen hope.  I know it is hard.  I know you are afraid of getting hurt.  But, I want to do this thing for you.  I want to give it to you. 

You have to be willing to receive it though.  You have to open the door.  You closed it because you were frustrated and worried about getting more hurt.  You didn't give up on it because I told you to.   I did not tell you to give up. I will never tell you to give up.  I will tell you to give in to me but never to give up. 

Your dreams are real.  Your dreams are given to you to help you more fully experience this life.  Dreams are as real as the table beside you.  Dreams are like the spiritual realm.  They don't function under the same rules as the natural world but that doesn' t make them less real. 

You will have the things that I have shown you in our dreams.  Both those while you were sleeping and those while you were awake.  Don't give up.  Open up the door again.  Please don't give up.  I really want you to have this. 

Remember when you wanted to give your truck away and you were afraid she wouldn't take it?  Remember how rotten that felt to want to give it so badly but worrying that she wouldn't take it?  Remember how great it felt when she said yes, she would take it?  Multiply that feeling by several million and you might begin to understand how I am feeling. 

I am so concerned that you won't receive what I have for you and it is so good.  You want this, you need this, open back up the door and trust me to protect you.  Trust me to love you enough to make sure that you remain whole.  Trust me to bring you only good gifts, but open back up the door. 

I love you daughter.  I am glad you had a good day and enjoyed it.  I look forward to being with you in service tomorrow.  Trust my love for you now and forever.  I will never bring you a bad gift, ever.

The tower...

My prayer:
My mighty and incredible God.  How I love and worship you God.  You are so good. You provide for every need, even my need to learn and to grow.  God please keep helping me to grow and be everything that you want me to be.  What an amazing journey this life is. 

Sometimes it is all so exhausting.  Between the struggles and the joy, between the work and the play, it can all seem like too much.  But, when I just shut up and trust you, it all works out.  Everything that needs to get done gets done and life goes on. 

That's the crazy thing God, no matter how rough it gets, life goes on.  Everlasting life is something that I don't think I have truly understood God.  That I will live forever with you helps to take the pressure off of today's deadlines.

I guess I am pretty tired tonight God.  My thoughts and my prayer are kind of wandering.  Before I stop and listen, I need to ask you to help my friends.  You know the situations and you know what they need.  God, meet their needs.  Do your work in their lives.  And, more than anything else God, give them a new sense of hope tonight God.  Give them a hope to know that you have amazing plans for them and that tomorrow doesn't have to be like today or like yesterday.  Thank you God.  In Jesus name, amen.

What God Said Tonight:
You have listened to me for many days and nights now.  You strive to hear my voice in every area of your life now and that is good.  I need you to listen to my heart tonight.  I need you to hear what I mean as well as the words.  I need you to be sensitive to my Spirit at new level.  Sometimes the things I want to tell you are too complex for just words.  I talk in circumstances sometimes just for this reason.  Sometimes what I need to tell you cannot be expressed in words but it can be expressed through an experience. 

I use parables a lot because of that.  Sometimes a story about a situation with the emotion and spiritual aspects can say more than words alone. 

You are building a tower.  The tower is not very strong yet but it is building both up and out.  It is new and you can still see the underlying structure.  It seems almost raw and fragile but if you try to knock it over you will see just how sturdy it is.  It is made up of many bands, many sinews.  Each of them are people, relationships, experiences in your life.  You are building a strong tower. 

You will want this tower in the days to come.  You will find protection in it and you will find a platform to speak on it.  Right now it doesn't look like much.  It is still mostly raw materials and mud.  But some day people will come from miles around to see your tower.  You will always point to the tower and say, "See what God did."  That is part of why the tower is so good.  You will never take credit for it and for that reason it will never be torn down.  Your tower will stand forever.  It will be monument to me and I am pleased with it. 

I am sorry to be so cryptic tonight but as I say, some things need to be felt and experienced more that just heard.  Listen with your heart tonight and you will be able to see the tower.  I love you daughter and will never ever stop.

Like the sunrise

My prayer:
Awesome, amazing, incredible God.  I love you God, so very much. I worship you God.  You are my everything.  Everything I need and everything I want.  I have complete satisfaction in you God.  Thank you God for a blissfully uneventful day!  After this week, it was nice to have a day where nothing bad or unexpected happened.  God, I am just happy to be in your presence tonight.  What is on your mind?  I sit at your feet and I am here to listen.

What God Said Tonight:
Walk with me, sit at my feet, listen to me.  You and I are making a great relationship better just by being together.  There is a great art in just being together. No expectations, no pressure, just being together. 

When was the last time you were just content to be with someone.  Not because you needed or wanted anything from them and not because you wanted to give them anything but just because being with them was so much better than being without them.  That is how it is with you and me.  Sometimes, it is good to just be together because being together is so much better than not being together.  No pressure, no need, just resting together, enjoying each other and loving each other. 

I love that you have come to understand the value of being together for no purpose other than to be together.  We were meant for this.  I created you to be with me.  We will be together for all eternity.  I will never leave you.  You can count on me everyday for the rest of your life.  I will always be with you.  I will be with you in the good times, the bad times and the neutral times. 

I am glad that you got rested today.  There are more challenges ahead.  But the one promise that you can count on unequivocally is that I will ALWAYS be with you.  When you feel me and when you don't, when you hear me and when you don't, I am ALWAYS with you 

My plan for you is so great.  Your future is so amazing.  My love for you is greater and brighter than you can fathom. 

I am like the sunrise.  You don't ever have to think about the sunrise; it is always there.  You don't ever have to wonder if tomorrow there will be a sunrise.  Even when there is a storm and the sun is completely covered, you still know there is a sunrise.  You can't see it, you can't feel it but you know it is there and will always be there.  That's what I am like.  You can always know that I am there even if you can't see me because of the storm.  Even when you can't feel my warmth, you can KNOW that I am always there with you. 

Rest well tonight.  We will do more tomorrow.  But thanks for just being with me tonight.  I love you my daughter.

Beauty in the struggle...

My prayer:
What a mess today was God!  Thank you for reminding me all day that the struggles and problems were not as bad as they could have been and that nothing happened that isn't fixable.  Thank you God for helping me to to be able to laugh at the ridiculousness of how everything just went wrong.  It was about the time that I dumped the entire full diet Coke onto the passenger side floor of my car that I realized that this was one of those days that I could either get REALLY frustrated or I could just laugh and know that tomorrow would be better. 

I don't think I could have realized that even just a few years ago.  Thank you God for all that you have taught me.  Thank you for always stepping in and reminding me of the lessons you have taught me.  Thank you for the reminders and thank you that I don't have to get stuck in the struggle as often as I use to. 

I love you God, so much!  I ask God that tomorrow be better than today.  I pray God that you help me to be better tomorrow than I was today.  I pray God that you always help me to be better tomorrow than today for as long as there is a tomorrow. 

What God Said Tonight:
Perspective is a pretty amazing thing.  No matter how bad a thing looks, from a different vantage point, it is not so bad.  Take my death for example.  When the disciples heard that I was going to be beaten and killed they got very upset and started saying that it couldn't happen.  I had to stop them because from my perspective, although the sacrifice would be painful, it would also be my greatest gift and provide a way for my children to come back to me.  To me it was beautiful.  To them it was tragic. 

Find beauty in every situation.  I will turn every situation for you good, so find the good in it.  Find the beauty in it.  When you struggle, not only do you learn something but it gives you one more thing that will help you help others.  That is the beauty in each struggle. 

I love you daughter.  I was with you today and talking to you all day but the best part was you were listening.  Even in the deepest frustration, you were still listening for me and you were still turning to me. 

That  is the key to getting through any problem no matter how big.  Listen and turn to me.  I have the answer for every problem.  Learn to listen in every situation so you can have the answers that you need when you need them. 

Every day is a lesson and every lesson is a step to another level of satisfaction and maturity in me.  Stay close to me and I will take you to such great heights you cannot imagine.  I love you so much.  You are mine, beautiful, wonderful and all that I hoped you would be.  Rest now, recover.  You are safe in my arms.

Darkness or light...

My prayer:
Awesome God, my father, teacher, healer and provider.  God, my thoughts and emotions are kind of all over the place tonight.  So much so, I think I just want to shut up and listen to you. 

I find it so amazing (not in a good way) that yesterday I can be so assured of your guidance and direction in my life and tonight be filled with doubt.  Doubt about where I am going, who I am, if I have any value. Whoever first said, "you can't trust your feelings" really knew what he was talking about. 

So, instead of listening to me whine, complain and wallow in my own self doubt, I want to hear what you have to say tonight God.  What is on your mind and you heart?  I love you God.

What God Said Tonight:
It isn't really important you know.  Your feeling, your doubt, your worry, all of it doesn't add up to much in the scheme of things.  Regardless of all of that, I will accomplish my will in your life, because you asked me to.  I will have the final say.  I will lead you into a great future, and no amount of doubt, self criticism, or insecurity is  going to stop me. 

I am your God.  I am your Lord. I AM.  My sovereign will is in charge of your life.  So, you can choose to remain in this dark place of self doubt that you have landed in tonight.  Or, you can get up, shake it off and walk into the brilliant light that is the life that I have ordained for you. 

It truly is that easy.  It is a choice like any other choice.  What do you want?  Do you want me or do you want darkness?  I already know the answer but you need to understand that is truly the question you face tonight.  If you choose to remain with the self doubt and the dark criticism on yourself, you are choosing darkness.  If you choose to remember all that I have promised you and all that I have said about you, you choose me and you choose light. 

Remember that you are the head and not the tail, you are above an not beneath, you are more than a conqueror, you are destined to succeed, you are the apple of my eye and you are etched in the palm of my hand.  You are the beloved of the most high God.  You are the servant of the God of the universe.  That is who you are. 

Will you choose to believe it or will you choose to believe the lie.  Will you choose to believe me or will you allow yourself to drown in your own emotions and the lies for the devil?  Make your choice.  It is an easy choice when you look at it clearly. 

I love you so much daughter and I can't allow you to spend one more minute in the place of darkness.  Come with me back to the light and the future and promise I have for you. Do not be discouraged.  You are mine.

Guide you always...

My prayer:
God, my God.  You are so amazing.  I never get tired of reveling in your presence.  I never get tired of being with you God. 

There are times, like now, when your plan, your guidance, your direction seem so clear in my life.  When everything, good, bad and indifferent, seem to be working together seamlessly toward a path and a goal that only you really understand.  Everything working together for the same purpose.  Everything coming together and achieving more than I could ever imagine. 

God thank you for your plan on my life.  Thank you for working everything for my good.  Thank you God that even those things that were meant to hurt me, you turn them for my good.  I give you all the glory and all the honor God.  Every good thing that is happening, everything that is getting done is only because of you.  I promise not to forget. 

I love you God.  Thank you for being my guide, my trainer and my father.  I will trust you and follow you forever.

What God Said Tonight:
"I will guide you always" is a promise that I  intend to keep my daughter.  I will guide you always.  You don't have to figure out this life on your own.  I am here, just continue to follow. 

When you follow me, do it the way I tell you to, it is so easy.  I have literally made a way for you.  I have a plan on your life that I have been dreaming about since the beginning of time.  Your purpose was born long before you were.  Your place, your  calling, your job, whatever you want to call it, has been waiting for you.  Waiting for you to be ready. Waiting for you to let go of the world and trust in me.  It has been waiting and now you are here. 

I will absolutely continue to work everything for your good.  It is another promise and I am the promise keeper.  I will not let you down.  I will fulfill every promise I have ever made.  I won't forget a single one.  Even the more obscure ones.  Even if every single person on the earth forgets about that promise, I will fulfil it anyway because I am the promise keeper. 

I will never leave you and we will do this thing together.  I love you my sweet daughter.  Rest for another packed day tomorrow.  More good stuff to come!

Rejection...

My prayer:
Awesome Daddy.  God how I love you.  You are my everything.  God I love that you love me no matter what.  I love that you provided a way to love me even at my most unlovable. God, that you loved me so much that you provided away to cover every mistake, every ugly part of me just so you could love me without reserve. Just so we could be together forever.  God, that is love.  That is what matters.

I am feeling  a bit rejected tonight God.  Why is that I tend to focus on the people who reject me more than the hundreds and thousands of people you put in my life to love me?  I should know by now that not everybody is going to love me, but a part of me is still not ok with that.  I just get to thinking, what's wrong with me? Or maybe it isn't me.  I don't know. 

God, I pray that you change anything in me that needs to change.  I ask God that you help me to focus on your love for me and the love of people you have put in my life.  I pray God that you help me learn what I need to learn from the people who don't like me, don't want me around and heal the hurt that causes in me.  Help me God to love no matter how they feel about me.  Help me to always reflect your love. 

God help me not to unknowingly reject others.  God help me to always see that inner value that you have placed in each person.  Help me to see them with your eyes.  God, help me to never make anyone ever feel like I do tonight.  I love you God.  Thanks for listening.

What God Said Tonight:
Rejection is hard, but always remember, they rejected me too.  If they rejected me, what makes you think they won't reject you too? 

Your prayer is right, you need to focus on the love not the rejection and you need to always love in spite of it all. 

Remember when I was on the cross.  In the midst of ultimate betrayal, all I could feel was love.  My whole purpose in going through it was because of love. 

You don't need people to accept you, to love you in order to love them.  You
don't need it because your love is not dependent on them.  Your love is dependent on me, and, I will never run out of love. 

You are going to see a lot more rejection in your life.  You will see a lot more love too but you will see a lot of rejection.  You need to decide to always respond in love.  Give people their space, but never stop loving.  I have put in you the love that never fails.  You will hurt, but love anyway.  I love you sweet daughter and I tell you dear, love anyway.

Show up...

My prayer:
My God, Father, teacher, healer, provider, King and love of my life.  You are my everything and I remain in awe of you. 

God, sometimes I get worried.  What if some night I show up and I can't hear you?  What happens if I have stuff going on or I get too distracted or whatever?  I don't want to let people down.  I try not to think about the incredible people that you draw to the blog while I am praying, mainly because it kind of freaks me out.  I mean, who am I that thousands of people come to see what you and I talk about.  There's the thing God, they don't come to see what I talk about, they come to see what you talk about, which is exactly how it should be.  But, what happens if some night, I don't hear you? 

I know you are always here with me and you will never leave me or forsake me.  I know you have promised me that and I believe it.  However, I know from my past, that there are times when I hear you clearly and times that I don't hear you so clearly.  What happens if one of those times when I don't hear you as well happens during our nightly meetings? 

I don't know why I am so worried about this tonight God, but it has been on my mind and I figure it is about time I bring it up to you and see what you have to say about it.  I love you God. I am honored to be able to meet you every night.  I love that you talk to me.  I don't mean to be selfish, but please don't ever stop.

What God Said Tonight:
What are you so afraid of tonight?  Do you still think that some part of this is coming from you?  It isn't.  It is my prompting every night and my voice responding. 

I will continue to do this every night as long as you are willing.  As long as you show up, I will be here.  Will there be some night when you don't hear me? Maybe.  And, if it happens, you will be as transparent about that as you have learned to be about every other part of your life. 

You have told me repeatedly that you give me your whole life.  I am using your life to teach others and help them.  I will continue as long as you are willing.  When you choose to stop, we will stop.  While you are willing, we will continue. 

I love you daughter and I love your willingness to meet with me, to share to listen.  I am constant.  I will not leave.  I am here any time you look for me.  I am always here.  I can't not be here.  It is not possible.  I am omnipresent.  I am always present. 

You worry that you won't hear me because there have been times in the past when you haven't heard my voice.  But, those days are over.  Remember that new commitment you made several months ago?  The result of that was there would be no more roller coaster in our relationship.  Have you not noticed a new stability since that time?  That stability is a direct result of your commitment to me. 

We have reached a point that if you stop hearing me, it will be so bothersome and so painful, you will stop and do what ever you have to get back.  You won't allow the distance that you have allowed in the past.  Now that you know how good it can be between us, you won't go back.  I know it and trust but you need to trust it too. 

Remember what you learned way back in Prison Ministry.  Your job is to show up.  I will take care of the rest.  You don't have to worry, just show up.  I love you daughter.  I am yours forever.

Spending time...

My prayer:
Mighty and awesome God.  I love you God. I cherish you. I am so grateful for you, I can never express it enough.  I am also so very tired tonight God.  I don't know what to say or what to pray; but, I love you and I always want to hear what you have to say no matter how tired I am.  What's on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:
My daughter.  I love you and our time together should never be a burden.  If you are tired, you should rest.  But I am glad that you want to spend time with me anyway.  Doing this, spending this time together at night, the last thing before you rest is good.  It gives us a chance to review the day. 

I like being the last thing you think about each day.  I like being the first thing you think about each day.  I love that you keep me in your mind and your heart every day.  You are my desire, my love and the apple of my eye.  I don't have one moment that you aren't on my mind.  You are my focus and my love, the target of my love. 

When you want to spend time with me, it just makes my heart swell.  It makes me so proud to be your Father.  It makes me proud to know you.  It may seem simple but your simple desire to want to be with me means more to me than anything else you can ever do. 

I love that you serve me and my kingdom. I love that you are constantly looking for ways to bless and be a blessing.  But more than any of that, your desire to spend time with me, talk with me, listen to me and love me, that means more than all the rest put together.  It is simple but it is true. 

We can share our love story for all eternity.  Every day getting closer.  Can you imagine how wonderful our relationship will be after ten thousand years of loving each other?  I can. 

I love you daughter.  Rest now and keep me in your mind and in your heart.  Let me be a part of everything you do and everything you are.  Keep me close.  I love it when you do that.

Fear and Sin...

Picture by Anthony Stuart:z https://www.flickr.com/photos/stuant63/2255781557
My prayer:
Mighty God, you are doing so much in my life right now.  I truly stand in awe.  You told me that there would be a time, a time that I have waited for so long, and that in that time, I would look around me and say, "Whoa, how did I get here."  You were SO right!  I look around right now and see all that you are doing, all the amazing opportunities to minister, the favor at work and the amazing relationships you have brought to me and I say, "Whoa, how DID I get here?"  I am so grateful God.  I love these seasons when things are all happening so fast, when you are opening every door, when life just seems so blessed.  These are the truly good times God and I thank you for them.

But God, I also have to ask your forgiveness tonight. The woman at the bus stop by the gas station who asked for money, God, I lied to her.  I don't even know why.  When she asked me for money, it was dark, I was alone and I felt vulnerable.  At first I told her I only had my credit card for gas.  Then you gave me another chance when she came back and asked if I was sure.  Then I lied again and told her I only had a couple of dollars and gave her three dollars saying that was all I had when I had another $5 in my purse.  God, what is $5?  Why did I hold back?  I feel so small. I am sorry God.  I was not a good reflection of you.  I am sorry that I let fear stop me from being a blessing. Mostly God, I am sorry that I lied. God, I will do better in the future.  Forgive me God and I pray that you find a way to provide for her tonight.

What God Said Tonight:
My daughter, I have said that if you repent and ask for forgiveness you are forgiven.  You are forgiven, now forgive yourself. 

You learned something valuable tonight.  You learned that fear can make you do things that you otherwise wouldn't do.  You learned that your generosity  can be overwhelmed by fear.  Remember that lesson and the next time fear tries to take a hold of you, be ready.  Be ready and do the opposite of what fear is telling you to do. 

Fear is not from me.  I have not given you a sprit of fear.  I gave you my strength, my protection and a sound mind.  I gave you my son and I give you my Holy Spirit to guide you.  Listen to my voice in those situations.  I will tell you the right thing to do and I will never let you walk into danger if you listen to me. 

Don't listen to fear.  It will always lead you down the wrong road.  It will always lead you away from me.  There is no fear in me.  There is no fear in the you that I made you to be.  Fear is a corruption that corrupts you.  Banish it from your life.  It has no place in my daughter. 

Trust me daughter and do not fear.  There is a reason I said that so much throughout the Bible.  Fear is one of the more effective weapons that your enemy uses against you.  Stop letting him.  Rely on me for the strength, protection and peace that I provide and let that banish the fear. 

I love you daughter.  Remember this night and do it differently next time.  That is all I ask, turn from your sin, call on me and I will forgive.  I will remember the sin no longer.  You are washed clean in the blood of my son and I love you more every day.  Be whole and move on.  Love you so much. Sit with me a little longer tonight.  Just be with me and let me heal you. Mmm, that is good.

Relationships and Purpose...

My prayer:
What an interesting day God.  Not the day I thought I was going to have but interesting!  I love when you change things up and work it all out anyway! 

God, it seems like today was all about making new connections, or maybe, enhancing previous connections.  You really are all about relationships.  Someone once described that you, being three in one, are constantly in relationship with yourself.  So, clearly, anything you created in your image would have a basic need to be in constant relationship. 

I love the people you have put in my life God.  They are all so amazing in their own ways.  They are each so talented, smart, supportive, loving and just down right amazing! I pray God that you continue to connect me with the people you want me to be connected with.  I pray God that you make me at least as much of a blessing in their lives as they are in mine.  God I pray for their needs and dreams, spoken and unspoken. I pray that you meet each need out of your riches in glory.  I pray God that you give them the desires of their hearts and fulfill those dreams that you put in them.  I pray your blessing, peace, joy, and love over each of their lives.  I thank you again for them in my life and I thank you for blessing them tonight. 

You are so awesome God.

What God Said Tonight:
You are in a good mood today.  Thanks for rolling with the changes today.  I needed to make a few things happen to move things forward.  It is good that you have learned to be flexible.  It has not always been that way. 

You have learned a lot in the last several years, most of it from people I put in your life.  Every person I put in your life is there for a purpose.  That purpose may be to provide you with something or to teach you something.  That purpose may be for you to provide something to them or to teach them something.  The purpose may simply be to love.  Actually you can count on it that the primary purpose of every person in your life is to love them and be loved by them.  Anything else is frosting. 

But know there is a purpose in every person and everything that I do in your life.  There are no coincidences.  You are on a planned path.  You are on the way as they used to say.  You are on my path and I will guide you always. 

Recognize the purpose in your life, in the lives of those around you.  When you have recognized it, fulfill it.  That is the goal.  Find your purpose in each situation and in each relationship and fulfill that purpose.  Can you do that for me? 

I love you daughter.  In every relationship, never forget our relationship must come first.  You and I have to stay close, aligned and of one mind for the rest of it to work out the way I intended it.  Be assured, there is a purpose in every last thing.  I don't waste anything.  Rest now.

Beautiful...

My prayer:
All knowing God.  Why is it that it is so easy for other people to see us clearly and so hard for us to see ourselves clearly? Ask any 5 of my friends and they could clearly identify my strengths and my weaknesses.  They could tell you the things that make me valuable to the people around me and the things that take value away from the people around me.  They may come up with slightly different answers based on their relationship with me and their own values, but in general, I would bet the answers would be similar.  But, ask me the same question and I will struggle a bit. 

God we had the message on Reverb online church tonight about "If you really knew you" and it seems like a really simple question, who are you? But, while it is a simple question, the answer is anything but simple. 

God I pray that you help me see me more clearly.  I pray God that you help me see my strengths and my weaknesses with a clarity that allows me to make changes and become a better person for you and for the people in my life.  God I pray that if there is anything that is keeping me from seeing me, like pride or fear, remove those things so that I can truly see me. 

God I also pray that you give me wisdom with the people around me.  I pray that you show me when and how to share insights.  I pray God that you show me how to always do it in love and never in judgement.  I pray God that you help me to always build people up and never tear them down.

God make me a better person so I can serve you better.  That is my prayer tonight God.  I love you.  What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:
I can absolutely help you to see yourself more clearly but you have to be open to see it all.  You have to be willing to see the good , the bad and the ugly.  You are always so quick to be critical of yourself, which can be useful for correction.  But what I need you to do is see the other side of the coin.  I need you to see the good that I put in you.  I need you to be ok with the fact that I have given you gifts and recognizing those gifts is not a prideful thing.  It does not have to be something you hide.  It should be something that you show to the world.  That is why I gave you those gifts so you would use them.  Not hide them. 

Don't ever try to to hide.  Don't hide your gifts or your weakness.  It is a waste of time and it inhibits my ability to use you and heal you.  You are my servant daughter and I know you love it when I use you for the kingdom.  Know that hiding from yourself makes it really hard for me to use you.  When you are hiding from yourself, you can't trust yourself.  When you can't trust yourself, I can't trust you. 

So let down your guard daughter.  You may be surprised at what you see. You may find that the truth is more beautiful than you could imagine.  You will see yourself through my eyes and believe me, there is nothing more beautiful to me than you.  My child, my love, you are the most beautiful thing in the world and I love you in your glorious beauty.  Peel back the layers and discover the beauty that I have grown inside of you.  You are like a budding flower that is about to open to the sunshine. 

Your beauty is just beginning to reveal itself.  Do not be afraid of it.  I made you beautiful.  Your beauty that I put in you will draw people to you and in turn to me.  Draw them in my beautiful daughter.  Shine in your beauty.  I love you so very much.  It is time to shine.

Protection...

My prayer:
Awesome ruler, King of everything,My Lord and savior.  God you are in charge of everything and your perfect will is being accomplished right now throughout the world.  God I thank you for being all powerful.  I pray God that you continue to show up in our lives, healing, loving, fixing and guiding every aspect. 

God I love you and I love that my God is all powerful.  God I am grateful that I have that power working on my side. What good would having a God be if that God was not the most powerful thing ever created?  I need a God that will win every time.  I need you God, the God of victory.  The all mighty and powerful God.  You are everything to me God. 

I kneel in your presence out of respect but even more so out of complete awe.  You, the most powerful force ever, loves me and treats me with a gentleness that is beyond words.  You are my everything.  I love being your daughter.

What do you want to say tonight God? I am here to listen.

What God Said Tonight:
You focus on my power to belay your own fear and that is good.  Everything you say is true, I am the most powerful force that has ever been or ever will be.  And, I will use that power to protect you and insure that you win. 

I love you and my power has no greater purpose than to protect you, my child.  My power is often misrepresented.  Power is meant to be used out of love, not out of hate or manipulation.  Remember always that manipulation is witchcraft.  I will always only use my power for love. 

Even when the day of judgement comes and I will use my power to separate the wheat from the chaff, the children of God from the children of satan.  Even in those days, I will do it out of love.  I will also do it with a heavy heart, knowing there are people who will be condemned to hell that did not have to be.

There are people in the end who, had they made one different decision, if they just once, decided to give me try...those are the ones that break my heart. Just one moment, one decision one minute away from everlasting joy in heaven.  Instead, they will rot in Sheol. 

Thank you daughter for always choosing me.  Be alert to opportunities to share me even more.  Be my lighthouse, but be my moving lighthouse.  Don't stay where you are; take my word around the world.  Let me show you what I can really do!  I have so much more to show you.  

I love you. Go and rest now while the night is still fairly new.

Remember the dream...

My Prayer,
Another awesome night of worship in my car with a great friend.  Why is it some of the most amazing experiences of worshiping you seem to happen in my car? Guess it doesn't matter where it happens, as long as it happens! 

God, I am a little goofy tonight.  I'm not sure this prayer will make any sense.  Sometimes, when I spend time in the presence of your Holy Spirit, it just messes me up and leaves me goofy. 

I love you so much.  Thank you God for taking care of me, my friends, my family, and your children throughout the world  Thank you God for ALWAYS being there.  Every time I look for  you, you are always right there.  There is a song that says you are in the same place third time as you were the first time, that you aren't trying to hide.  Thank you for never hiding God.  Thank you that no matter how many times I lose my way, turn my back, get distracted or make a wrong choice, that you are always right there waiting for me in the last place I saw you. 

You make it so easy on us Lord.  We make it so hard but you make it so easy on us.  God I give you my whole life.  Every good bad and indifferent part of it.  I give you my work, my mind, my body and my spirit.  I give you my thoughts and my heart.  God I give you everything.  Laying everything down for you tonight God, not because you asked but just because I want to.  Just because you are my God and I trust you more than I even trust myself.  I am yours God.

What God Said Tonight;
Tonight has been beautiful and wonderful.  You ask why you have such amazing worship times in your car.  It is simple really, that is where you are taking time to worship me with no one watching, with no need to serve, with no need to be concerned that someone else is getting what they need.  You are just in direct contact with me, worshipping and loving me. 

There are those special people that I have put in your life that you can share those times with.  The people who give as much as they get.  The ones who can see those moments of worship for what they are and join you in worship of me.  Those are even more precious times because I am in the midst of you.  You are gathered in my name and I am in the midst of it. 

I love you daughter so much.  I enjoyed tonight as much or even more than you did.  You're going to remember tonight as significant in the days to come.  The prophecies of tonight were real and were from me.  Trust what you hear from me.  Don't doubt right now.  I need your whole faith.  You have given me your heart, your mind, your body and your spirit tonight.  Give me also your full faith.  Give me your trust that I will do what I said I will do.  I am not a man that I would lie.  I will do what I said I would do. 

You have several promises on your life and don't give up, I am not done fulfilling them yet.  You had the message on Joseph today.  I know you don't particularly like that one because it hits a bit too close to home but it is good and true and you must remember it. 

I want you to know that I am with you.  I want you to remember every dream I have given you and I want you to trust me to complete it. 

Rest awhile and be ready to go in the morning.  The next phase is nearly here.  I am watching over your dream and I will see it accomplished.  My love will assure it and my word is your promise.  I love you like fresh mown hay.  You are golden and ready to be gathered up for our true purpose.  Be quiet now and rest.

Freedom...

My prayer:
God my God.  Lord of all creation and the one who loved me enough to die for me. I am not sure what to pray about tonight God.  You have heard the many prayer requests today for healing, protection, guidance and blessings.  Thank you God for hearing each and every one.  Thank you God for meeting the needs of your people. 

Thank you for meeting my needs.  Maybe that's what I need to be doing tonight God.  I need to thank you for ending what has been a many year battle.  There were many times that I did not think I would make it; but here I am, still standing and he is gone.  No more intimidation and no more manipulation.  Today, I am free.  God thank you for freedom.  Thank you God for giving me the strength to walk through that battle, withstand and survive through the end of it.  Thank you God for deliverance out of it. 

Thank you God for showing me the real battle, the real source and teaching me so many things despite it being designed to destroy me.  God you are so good!  Thank you!!! 

I love you so much God.  You are mine and I am yours forever.

What God Said Tonight:
You don't have to be afraid.  You don't have to be afraid of anyone, anything, not even of yourself.  You are protected and safe in my care.  I will always protect you and make sure you survive each battle.  No more fear. 

There will be struggles and pain but never more than I can heal.  Please remember that in the midst of the pain and the struggle that I will always bring you back to this place of joy, this place of freedom.  I will always care for you my child.  I will never leave you nor abandon you.  You will always be safe within my arms.  You will always survive.  You have eternal life with me.  You cannot be killed.  You cannot be destroyed.  Your future is assured and it lies with me.  I love you and I will always make sure that you are safe and whole. 

You have grown much in the last several years and the growth was painful at times.  I needed you to learn fast to be ready for what I need you to do so I allowed some rough things to help teach you. But, never once did I remove my protection from you.  Never once did I doubt that we would be here one day. 

Never forget this time.  Never forget the power of one person to effect the lives around them, either for positive or for negative.  One person can influence millions.  Make your choice if that influence will build people up or tear them down.  You are in a position to influence many. Make your choice and follow through purposefully. 

I love you daughter and it was my pleasure to free you this week.  Those who are free in me are free indeed.  Now that you are free, don't ever put anyone else in bondage.  Don't put others into the bondage I have delivered you out of, ever. 

I love you dear.  Rest, you have service tomorrow and I will need you to be ready.  I have some new stuff for you to do tomorrow.  Love you tons.
