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.

Another chance....

My prayer:
Well, today wasn't anything like I thought it would be. I really could have died today God. Thank you for protecting me.  Thank you for pulling me out of the undertow of the surf. Thank you for arranging it so Mom didn't go in with me. If she had been there, I would have been too worried about getting her out and we both would have drowned.  Your ocean is beautiful but powerful.  Kind of like you! 


It is kind of weird God. I know that I was in real danger today and yet, I wasn't afraid and just now in reviewing the day, I almost forgot that it had happened! Is there something wrong with me? Do I not value life enough? Maybe but I don't think that is it.  I think that I am so ready to live with you in heaven that whenever you want me there, I am ready to go.  I hate to lose other people to death, mainly for the selfish reason that I miss them. But when it comes to me, I know where I am headed and so, if you want me to live another one hundred years, great! If you want to bring me home tonight, great! 


I love you God and any day with you is a good day.  Thank you for being with me today and every day!


What God Said Tonight:
Too much emphasis is put on life and death. For you, there is no death.  There is no end.  You will live with me forever, period.  I have more for you to do where you are and as long as that is true, I will keep you safe and whole and make sure you have everything you need to do everything I have asked you to do.  When it is done, your day to day experience will change but you will still be living with and for me.  Your core, what you value and your purpose will never change.  These are eternal. 


Nothing really ever dies.  Everything and everyone will either live an eternity with me of will live without me.  You know that one day, those who live without me will come to an end.  There will be a final death for them. I will weep, I am already weeping for them.  If there were another way, I would do it.  If there were a way to........ but it doesn't work that way.  


I am sorry for the pause in thought there, sometimes the terror and sadness overwhelm even me.  That will be a truly bad day, when they come to their end.  I can't let one person who is meant to be with me end up there.  That is why I am waiting. That is why so many things that you have been waiting for haven't happened.  I have to give them one more chance.  Just one more.  I promise I won't wait one moment longer than I have to but they have to have another chance.  


I love you  daughter and I am always with you.  I will always protect you.  Your life is safe in my hands.  Rest tonight.

I love being with you...

My prayer:
Mighty and incredible God who has everything under control.  What a day of favor and blessing again! On time flights, room to spread out on the flights, everything so smooth, a beautiful place with a beautiful beach and nothing but time to relax and enjoy it. 


I continue to be amazed by how good you are to me. You spoil me, but don't stop! I have become accustomed to your favor on my life. Not that I have become complacent about it.  I am eternally grateful. But I am not sure I could go back to living without it.  I know I don't want to. Life is way too good with your favor. I don't ever want to live outside of your favor again. 


Maybe that makes me greedy?  It isn't that I want it and I don't want anyone else to have it.  I want EVERYONE to live with your crazy favor on their lives. How wonderful would this world be if we all will living with your favor pouring out over our lives? Would it be too much for us? Would we abuse it? Would we get complacent?  If the norm was to have your crazy favor on our lives, would we just expect even more? 


Maybe that is why we go through seasons of blessing and seasons of growth or testing? I don't know, I am just kind of babbling now God.  I am so relaxed and grateful to you. I could probably keep going all night.  But that would be awfully boring.


What is on your mind? That is the good stuff!  LOVE YOU SO MUCH GOD!!!


What God Said Tonight:  
Sweet daughter, don't you know by now that I love to listen to you.  You are never boring to me.  I love that you take time for me everyday. It seems like a small thing but so many struggle.  


I ache for more time with you.  I want to spend every moment with you.  I want to share everything with you.  I love to bless you. I love even more to be with you and be a part of  what you are doing.  I love being there when you laugh and I love being there to catch your tears.  I love to be there when you are struggling to keep a cap on that temper.  I love being there when you see great success.  I love being there when you are dancing and I love being there when you rest.  


Do you sense a theme here? No matter where you are and what you are doing, I love being with you.  Don't shut me out.  That hurts more than you can know. Whether it is in your joy or in your pain, don't shut me out.  I will never force myself in your life but I am always on the edge of my seat ready to jump at the chance to be with you. It means that much to me. I love you to pieces and these next several days are just for you.

I am here...

My prayer:
Awesome God, thank you for peace. Thank you for rest.  Thank you God for always being there to let me know that it is going to be all right and that you are in charge.  I love you God. 


I have a lot of people that are weighing heavy on my heart tonight.  People who are having a hard time feeling your love.  People who are having a hard time understanding you and your will for their lives.  People who are having a hard time seeing you working in your life and people who are so busy fighting the truth that they know is true but is too hard for them to live.  Living that truth means they have to give things up and they don't want to.  They can't see that what they gain is always more and better than what they give up.  


Awesome God, I give each of these people to you and I pray that you help them.  I pray that you flood them with you love, make your will obvious, open their eyes to the purpose and plan that you are working out in their life.  Help them God to see the truth and that your truth is better than anything else. God, these are truly great people and they need your help.  


You tell us you are our ever present help.  You tell us you will never leave us.  You tell us that you love us, that you have a purpose and plan for our lives.  You tell us that you will guide us always.  God I pray that all of those promises be active and present in their lives.  


I love you so much God.  Thank you for your promises.  Thank you for your grace and your mercy.  Thank you for your forgiveness.  And, thank you for being big enough to handle ANY problem.


What God Said Tonight:
What peace I have is yours.  The peace of knowing that the all powerful, all knowing creator of the universe is on your side and is working everything out perfectly for you.  The peace to know that no matter where you are, what you have done, what you will do in the future, I am right there waiting for you to call on me.  


I am here when you don't feel me.  I am here even when you don't know me.  I am ever present.  I am always here.  I am always on alert waiting for you to call on me, to ask me to help.  I am here.  


When someone is blind and standing next to a tree, they can't see the tree and they do not know the tree is there until they run into it.  But just because they don't see it doesn't mean it isn't there.  The reality of my presence does not require that you recognize it.  I am here whether you know it or believe it or not.  I am here.  If you search for me, you will bump into me.  Then you will know for sure.  But your knowing it doesn't make it more true.  


I am. 


I love you daughter.  Rest knowing that I have heard you and I will help.  Rest knowing that their hearts are more precious to me than you can imagine.  I am here for you always.

Perfect...

My prayer:
Awesome and amazing God. Today was rough. I was my own worst enemy all day. My attitude was out of whack. I didn't turn to you like I should have. I didn't really pray before things like I should have. Because of all of that, today was so much tougher than it needed to be.  


God, forgive me of getting most everything wrong today.  Forgive me for not doing the right that you have taught me and letting myself fall into old and destructive habits.  Forgive me for allowing myself to get offended.  Forgive me for not being the woman of God you have made me.


Father, please help me to do better tomorrow.  Help me to be the person you have made me to be. Help me to be a better example of who you are. In Jesus name I ask, amen.


What God Said Tonight:
Watch that you don't get lost in the guilt and self judgement.  You did not do your best today.  That is true.  You will do better tomorrow.  That is true.  You are forgiven tonight.  That is true.  Now, let's move on.  You are kind of tied up in a circle right now and it is time to break out of it and move on.  


I love you daughter. You are so very precious to me. You are my rubies and you are my gold.  You are worth more to me than all wealth of the world.  You are worth more to me than I can express. You are perfect in my sight, covered in the blood of your sacrifice.  Don't forget how wonderful I have made you.  


Don't get lost in this "setback." Move forward now and don't waste a minute more.  Rest knowing that I love you and you are perfect to me tonight.

Love band-aid...

My prayer:
Kind, loving, and precious God. You are so very sweet. You are also tough and all powerful but you are so sweet. Sometimes the gentle presence of you is almost more than I can bear. Your presence and your love is so completely beautiful, it brings tears to my eyes. 


I know I don't deserve it. I know i don't deserve you, but, that just makes it all more precious and more beautiful. God there is nothing like your presence.  There is nothing like your love.  I am in total awe of you.  


I hope you don't get tired of me telling you how great you are. I want more words to tell you, I want more talent to show you, I want you to hear my heart crying out my complete love for you! 


God your presence is like a warm blanket tonight.  I feel you wrapped around me.  It is warm and kind of tingly.  The physical presence of you in my life is more miraculous than I can describe.  


Holy Spirit, when you touch my spirit and my heart, I explode with pure joy. Jesus, when we hang out and talk about what it is like to be human, I know that I have a friend that will never turn his back on me.  Father, when I feel your covering, like I do tonight, I know that there is nothing that ever can truly harm me.  I know that you will protect me throughout eternity.  I know that I am safe in your presence.  


Thank you precious God for being everything I need.  I love you with everything that I am.


What God Said Tonight:
I love you and I am so glad that you know it.  You haven't always known.  You haven't always trusted that love.  I am so glad that we are finally at a point where you can begin to understand the love that I have for you.  


There is power in love.  There is healing in love.  There is truth in love. Love is patient, kind, never jealous and always giving.  


I love you with a purity that you cannot know outside of me.  I love you with a passion and a power that you cannot receive from anyone else.  I have a capacity for love that is not possible outside of me.  To know this great love, to experience this complete love, to have this true love in your life, you have to know me.  


I sometimes find it hard to believe that some people don't want my love.  Some people want it but are afraid it is not true.  Some people want it but think they don't deserve it.  But some people have been so hurt and torn to pieces that they truly don't want my love. 


Please remember that every person you meet has been hurt.  In one way or another, to one degree or another, every person you meet has been hurt.  Don't add to the hurt. Love them anyway. The smallest gesture of love can heal years of pain.  The smallest patch of love can provide the the opening I need to show them pure, healing, and powerful love.  Let your love be the band-aid that allows the wound to heal enough to let me in. 


I love you my sweet band-aid.  You are so very precious to me.  I will love you forever. I will protect you forever.  I will be your friend forever.  I will, forever.

What do you want...

My prayer:
Awesome, powerful God. Thank you for all that you are and all that you did today. 


Thank you again for protecting M and her family from the tornado! What a beautiful miracle that was God!! You lifted that tornado up off the ground and over their car keeping them safe...whoa! You are truly awesome God and life with you is so much better than life without you ever was.  


I love you God and I better turn things over to you before I fall asleep in this chair. I love to hear you God.


What God Said Tonight:
What do you need daughter? You haven't asked me for much in a long time.  You have not because you ask not.  Those are my words that you often use in jest but they are true none the less. 


What do you want daughter? What do you need? I hear your requests for everyone else but what about you? Don't forget to ask me for you sometimes.  I love that you so often come just to talk and spend time with me. I love that, but bring me your worries and your needs too.  Don't expect that I already know them.  I do, but there is power and activation through prayer.  Your prayer makes it possible for me to act in a situation. Your prayer opens the door.  Your prayer reaches into heaven and creates a tunnel that I can act through to change the circumstance.  


It is not always you that needs to be changed, sometimes it is the circumstance.  Pray to me about the circumstance and create an avenue for me to act.  


I love you so much. This is the beginning of a new journey together but this one we will have more help than we have ever had before. So many helping hands you will be amazed.  Go and rest now.

The mixing process...

My prayer:
Awesome and amazing God who saved me, loves me, guides me. God, twice in the last three days I have had people tell me there is no evidence that you exist.  Funny thing, I haven't even felt the need to argue.  It would be like trying to convince someone that my mom exists. All I have told them is that I know you exist because of my relationship with you.  I know you exist because I know you.  I know you exist because my life is radically changed with you in it. And that is it really.  You are because you are.  


Does that mean my life is perfect?  Does that mean I am perfect? NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOO! But it means that I know you are perfect.  It means that I know you are working out everything in my life.  It means that I have a hope for a future.  I have hope that tomorrow, every tomorrow, can and will be better than today.


God, thank you for hope. Thank you for "proving" to me how real you are.  God I pray that you continue to show people just how real you are so they can get on board before it is too late.  I love you so much God.  Thank you for expaining things to me today.  Thank you for being my everything.


What God Said Tonight:
Wait until you see tomorrow!  All of the things that worried you today, all of the things that seemed so wrong today, are mixing together for something so amazing you will not believe it.  


The mixing process is messy.  It's like when you bake a cake, well, when someone bakes a cake.  The messiest part is the mixing.  If you do it too fast, you can splatter the batter all over the place and ruin it.  If you mix it too slow, you will not get the right consistency and you will ruin it.  But done carefully at the right speed for the right amount of time and you have perfect batter that once it is put through the fire, makes a delicious cake.  


We are baking a cake in your life and right now, we are in the mixing period.  It doesn't look like much right now but wait for it all to come together.  Next is the season of the fire.  That is where it all is changed from a goopy mess to something beautiful. 


This cake is worth it even though it doesn't look like it now.  Be patient in the process and you will see great things.  I love you so much daughter. Stick in there with me and we will see a new victory.  I love you and I am with you always.  Let's go at this next week together.  There is a lot more to do, but I will be with you.  Rest now daughter and you will be ready.

The farmer...

My prayer:
Awesome and mighty God. Tomorrow is a big day.  Tomorrow is the day we formally recognize what you did for us and celebrate your ressurection.  Tomorrow is a big chance to reach a lot of people for you.  


I pray God that you draw in every person that you want to touch tomorrow.   Help us God to say what you would have us say, do what you would have us do, and most of all to reflect you in everything.  


God I pray that all of the people who will go to church because "it is Easter and that is what you do," be surprised by your power, your grace and your mercy.  I pray God that they leave the service changed.  I pray God that they see you in a new and more real way than ever before. 


Thank you God for the opportunity to serve your people.


What God Said Tonight:
What you do tomorrow is not as important as what you do every other day of your life. People are not often convinced by a service, a message alone.  People are convinced by seeing me in your life every day.  


I will  bring a lot of people to you and to services tomorrow; but they will be people who have been prepared by you and people like you living next to them everyday.  You are the evidence that they need to see.  Your life is the proof they need to see that I exist and that I love them.  You are my walking billboards.  


Be ready to receive and reap the bounty tomorrow.  There will be a lot who choose me tomorrow.  There will be a lot of people who decide, after all of this time, that tomorrow is the day they are going to choose.  Tomorrow is the day they are going to change their lives.  But as you see each of these people make this marvelous  choice, remember that what brought them to it was the many people who have been planting seeds in their lives.  You get to see and be a part of the harvest but you did not plant all of the seed.  


I love you daughter.  Remember the importance of your everyday life.  Remember that you are as much a farmer planting seeds as you are a fisher bringing people in.  You are my hands and feet and I appreciate and love you so much.  I will remain with you always, you can count on it.

I would do it again...

My prayer:
My God and my salvation. Good Friday...what a weird thing to call this day when we remember the ultimate sacrifice that you made for us. The betrayal, the beating the unjust punishment, the painful horrifying death, and the moment when God the Father had to look away, all so much more than any of us could take. Which was really the point I guess.  


We were never going to be good enough on our own to be saved.  We were never going to be able to withstand the sacrifice required. So you did it for us.  That is so like you.  You pick up where our abilities end.  You make it possible for us to be and do so much more than we could ever be or do on our own.  


God, you are my salvation, you are the purpose of my life, you are my success, you are my healer, you are my friend and you are the best part of me.  I love you so much.  I lifetime of "thank yous" could never express my gratitude for your sacrifice.  Because of what you did, I am going to heaven some day.  Because of what you did, I get to know you in this life.  Because of what you did, I get to live a life full of hope, favor and dreams.  


Thank you Jesus for what you did.  Thank you Father for sacrificing your son for me.  Thank you Holy Spirit for living in me.  I love you God more than I can say.


What God Said Tonight:
I love you and I would do it all again tomorrow if I needed to.  If it would bring one more of my children home, I would do it again.  My only motivation is to get as many children home as possible.  


I hate to lose even one.  The consequences are too dire.  The lake of fire, hell is so much worse than you have been able to imagine.  It is your worst nightmare on steroids.  It is everything you could imagine but 100 times worse.  There is no joy, there is no peace, there is nothing but pain and torment.  I can't stand to see my children there.  I will do what ever I need to do to get as many of my kids with me as possible. 


I will need you to do anything and everything possible to bring my people in.   I need you to be the fisher of men that I have called you to be.  I can convince them, but I need you to reach out to them and bring them in.  I will give you words, just like tonight, and I will prepare their hearts.  But be ready always.  


Don't let my sacrifice be wasted.  Make sure that my death is for a purpose.  


I love you enough to die for you and I would do it again. Rest now, we will talk more tomorrow.

Warrior angels...

My prayer:
Awesome and all powerful God. You are simply wonderful. I look forward to this time with you all day.  What do you want to talk about tonight? What is on your mind? I love you God and I am here and ready.


What God Said Tonight:
My angels are with you tonight.  I have sent them to you to prepare for battle. But don't worry, don't be afraid, it is not a battle you will fight.  That is why I sent them  


The battle is spiritual.  You will likely notice some things that spill over, but my angels cannot and will not lose.  I can promise you that. My warrior angels are with you. There are more angels in existence than there are people.  


You are tired from the race and your time to rest is nearly here.  In the meantime, keep at the fight, duck when the enemy takes a swing and let my angels defend you.  The fight is fixed and we win but listen to me and trust me to keep you from harm. 


Rest tonight for more tomorrow. Remember I am with you always. My angels will defend you. You are safe despite chaos around you.  The things happening around you have very little to do with you and your eternity.  Look to me for that. I am your future and I am your hope, always. Rest now and see the battle fought tomorrow.  I love you my sweet warrior daughter.

Jesus goggles...

My prayer:
My awesome God. Thank you God for putting such amazing people in my life.  I spent so many years pushing people away, trying to protect myself.  I didn't realize what I was missing.  I didn't realize the incredible gifts you have given to people and how much better my life is with them in it! Talented, smart, sweet, giving, loyal, honest, and real...are all of your kids like this or have you just surrounded me with your best? 


Either way, THANK YOU! Thank you for the family and friends you have given me.  Thank you for the people you created them to be.  Thank you for the blessing they are to me.  Thank you for helping me to get out of my own way and teaching me how to let people into my life.  I love you God and I am so grateful that you give me EVERYTHING and EVERYONE that I need.


What God Said Tonight:
You are seeing my people with Jesus goggles on tonight and that is good.  When you see people covered in the blood of the Lamb, you can see them for all they are meant to be and not get distracted by the sin.  You see their spirit and the truth of who they are, not what circumstances and life have turned them into.  You see them like I see them and you can't help but love them.  


It is the way I see you too.  Covered in the blood and everything I created you to be.  I died so that you could receive the forgiveness for yourself, of course, but I also died so you could begin to see your brothers and sisters through that same blanket of forgiveness.  


Live in peace with your brothers, with your sisters.  Find the greatness in them and nurture it. Encourage the greatness in them and I will encourage the greatness in you.  Be blessed and know that I love you more than I can say.  Sleep sweetly.

Why...

My prayer:
Mighty God, Father. Sometimes I have to stop and just be amazed by you.  I am amazed that even though you are you, God of everything, you let me know you, talk to you, hear from you. That is so irrational and crazy. 


I know you love me because you tell me and show me a lot but sometimes I have to wonder why you do. I am so grateful that you do.  I can't imagine life without your love.  But, why? Why would you love someone who gets it all wrong more than she gets it right?  Why would you love someone who is so much less than you? I mean if you were the universe, I would be less than a speck of dust. How do you even notice me, let alone love me? 


I guess the "why" doesn't really matter.  The only thing that matters is that you do love me and that makes everything worthwhile.  But, you know me...I think my first word as a baby was "why?"  


I remain in awe of you God.  I remain in awe of who you are, what you do and that somehow, you decided to love me.  I remain all yours God.


What God Said Tonight:
Watch for the new season and you will understand things tomorrow that you did not understand today.  Keep asking your questions, you will get the answers.  There are so many mysteries in this world. I have the answers and I will share them each with you as you are ready for them. I know that you often think about all of the questions you will ask me when you get to heaven. Don't wait. Ask now and I will tell you all that I can.  All that you can understand.  Some answers will need to wait for you to grow into a place where you can understand the answer but I will give you the answer as soon as you are ready.  


I don't want to be mysterious with you.  I don't want to be mysterious with my children.  I want you to know everything and be armed with that knowledge and that truth.  I gave you the Bible just for that purpose.  It is our text book for life.  I put in it everything you need to know.  The answers to your questions are there too.  


Think about what I have told you in your Bible.  I created you, I knew you before you were in your mother's womb.  I sculpted you as a potter. I am with you always. I died for you.  I created the world for you. I did it all for you. 


You ask why I love you, how could I not?  I have invested everything in you and in your life.  I live inside of you. I am your Father and your friend.  I am love.  I am not a loving God, I am love.  I can't help but love.  How much more will I love my creation, my child? I have created you and chosen you.  Of course I will love you. I understand that in some ways it doesn't make sense but if you look at at it from my perspective, it makes all of the sense in the world.  


I love you and that truly is the important piece.  Receive my love, accept my love tonight.  Rest in my love. Know that I am with you now and forever.  Know that my love for you can never be challenged and can never wane.  I am yours forever.

A decision...

My prayer:
All knowing God.  So, I definitely was presented a new opportunity today like you said. My first reaction was to absolutely dismiss it and say, NO WAY! But then I remembered what you said last night.  


Is this the opportunity you were talking about? It seems so unlikely. I don't see any possible way how this thing could be turned into a blessing.  But maybe that is the point?  Maybe that is exactly the kind of situation, one where I can't see it turning out well, where you can show up and show how you can turn EVERYTHING to my good.  


Or, is this not what you were talking about. If I look at this opportunity logically, I would be crazy to do it. It would be a lot of work that would make very little difference in the world. At least that is what it looks like to me.


So God, what do I do?  I need to hear you really clearly on this.  If you want me to do it, fantastic, make it really clear to me so I know I am doing your will. I will do anything that you want me to.  If this is not something you want me to do, if it is a distraction, show me that really clearly as well.  


God you tell me when I lack wisdom to ask for it and you will give it to me.  God, I ask for wisdom.  Help me to know your will in this. I really need your help God.  I don't know what to do.


What God Said Tonight:
I told you it wasn't going to be easy.  I told you it would stretch you. I told you that you would think that it was not for you.  


This thing is not what it seems.  This is a test and a time for you to remember your roots.  It is a time and an opportunity for you to serve for the sake of serving.  To be my hands and feet for no purpose other than I am asking you to. 


It will make more sense soon.  You know what I want you to do. You are resisting because  you don't want to do it but you know what I want you to do.  


You have a choice.  You always have a choice.  You can choose to do only the things that I bring you that you like.  You can choose to only obey my will when it is in line with yours.  Or, you can be a fully devoted follower of me and do what I ask when I ask it.  The difference is a life of goodness vs. a life of greatness.  


You were made for greatness and I can tell you that you will never be happy with less than.  I can tell you that you are on the brink. Do what want.  Choose comfortable, safe and good.  Or choose, dangerous, uncomfortable and great.  


I love you no matter what.  I will be with your forever no matter what.  I will never leave you, no matter what.  So do what you want, remembering the regret of "what if?"

Ready...

My prayer:
Awesome and incredible God. You are so good God. Thank you God for the reminders today of the impact you make on people's lives.  I am so very grateful to be a part of your ministry.  I am so very grateful to get to be a part of you touching people's lives.  There is nothing better, anywhere!


I pray God and ask that you continue to hear us and meet the many needs we have in this life. I sometimes think you must get tired of hearing us always needing, always asking.  Life can be so tough sometimes and fact is, I can't live this life without your constant help.


I pray God over this coming week and ask that you continue the unmerited favor over my life. I love living in your favor!! I get such a kick out of seeing you prosper everything I put my hand to, as long as I am seeking you first, praying and giving you all the glory.  Seems like a pretty easy price to pay for the crazy favor you continue to show me.  Thank you Father.  You are so very good to me!!


I pray also God that you show me how I can best bless and serve you this week. Father, show me the needs that you want me to fill.  Show me the things you have for me to do.  It has been awhile since we have done a "new thing." If it is the right timing, show me that new thing you want me to do this week.  I love you God and I pray in the name of Jesus, amen.


What God Said Tonight:
I am here and I am waiting on you tonight.  I have something that I have been holding on to until you were ready. I think the time is now and you are ready. I have a new thing for you and you will be surprised.  


It had to wait for just the right time.  It had to wait for you to be fully prepared.  This new thing can be a blessing or a curse depending on if you are ready or not.  I have waited purposefully to give you the best chance of receiving it as a blessing and not a curse.  When you first see it, you may be tempted to dismiss it, but don't.  When you find yourself saying, that can't be for me, stop.  It likely is.  


I have a new thing that will take faith, it will take stepping out.  It won't be comfortable. It won't be easy.  But, if you are ready, it will be a bigger blessing to you and to the world than you can imagine right now.  


I have a bright and glorious future planned for you.  You will do great things in my kingdom, and you will do even greater things if you are ready.  Be waiting  I will bring it to you.  


I love you my sweet daughter.  Rest for another eventful week.  I am here for you every moment of every day and night.  I will never leave you.  I will always equip you for the things I ask of you.  I will never make you do anything on your own. 


I love your dependence on me.  It took a long time to teach you that.  Lean on me, call out to me and always ask for my help.  It is a big part of why I am here and a big part of why I sent my son to die.  I needed to be with you all the time, not separated by sin.  Covered in the blood, I can keep you close at ALL times.  I love you so much.  Rest now and we will do more tomorrow.

Healing miracles...

My prayer:
Amazing God of everything and everyone.  God I remain utter awe of you.  You continue to perform true miracles every day and I love it! Another miracle healing tonight God, well I guess there were probably a lot of them but one that I know about.  


You are so amazing!! God, I am so anxious to hear what you have to talk about tonight, I think I will shut up and listen.  I love you so much God.  You are the purpose and the point to my life.


What God Said Tonight:
Why is so amazing that I would heal my children?  Wouldn't you heal your child if you could? My healing is nothing more than the overflow of my compassion of my love for my children.  I know that it seems miraculous to you and it is.  But truth is, most of the time I can't help myself.  


I want to see my children living in divine health. I want so desperately to see my children free from the disease, the pain that ravages this world right now.  Soon, very soon, it will not be a problem anymore.  When there is the new heaven and the new earth, there will be no more sickness and no more pain.  There will be a life free of those things.  Until that time, I will continue to heal. I will continue to heal the people around you because I know how much you love to see it. I know what it does for your faith.  


I will heal bodies and I will heal hearts.  I will heal your spirit.  I will heal you and you will be strong and ready to face another day.  My love for you is overflowing and the result, the stuff dripping over the edges is healing and joy and peace.  Jump into my bowl of love and you won't ever have to know pain again.  Live in my love and you will be at peace.  There is no pain, no worry, no strife in my love. Live in the bowl of my love. I have more great things for you.

Inadequate...

My prayer:
Awesome Father.  God, I wish I was a better person.  I wish that I never had a bad thought about someone. I wish I never got jealous.  I wish that I always thought about others before myself. I wish that I never said the wrong thing, did the wrong thing, or thought the wrong thing. I just wish I was better. 


I love you so much and I worry sometimes that when people see that I don't always do the right things, they will think badly of you. God, I know that I can never be perfect, but I pray and ask that you continue to make me better, not for my sake but so people don't get confused about who you are and how great you are.


What God Said Tonight:
Your life is a continual journey and each day you are more like me and more like the person I created you to be.  You will have days of progress and days of set backs but it is all a journey and your destination is assured.  


Your desire to want to be better is good. Your feelings of inadequacy are a waste.  They are a waste of effort and they don't make anything better.  They don't make you better.  Do your best to be the best you that you can be each day.  That is all I care about.  I care that you try.  The failures and shortcomings, the sin, is what I died for. Just continue to try, I will cover the gap. 


People don't need you to be perfect to see me.  People who don't know me yet need to see that you are just like them but you have a hope they don't have.  People need to see that you are just like them but you have a relationship that they don't have.  People need to see that you are just like them but that because you know me, your life is better, more successful and you are more at peace. 


They don't need you to be perfect.  They don't understand or trust perfect.  I am the only perfect one.  Be you, it is enough, and continue to try to be your best. I love you right where you are.

Pile of blessings...

My prayer:
God you are incredible! You listen, you love, you provide, you prosper and you save me. Today was more examples of how you destine me to succeed.  I barely do anything and you turn it into success.  You make me effective.  One tiny action with your favor is better than 80 hours of work without your favor.

Your favor is such an amazing and unmerited gift! You sure give good gifts God.

It is so important that I never live a single second outside of your presence. I need you so much.  Now that I know what life is like with you, I don't ever want to be without you.  



Thank you for favor on my job and the new potential client.  Thank you for hearing the prayers and healing N's sister.  Thank you for guiding me and showing me what to do.  Thank you for making me effective.  Thank you for choosing me God.  I love you so much!!


What God Said Tonight:
What you are experiencing now is what I have always hoped and wanted for you.  There were so many years when I wanted to give to you.  I wanted to bless you but you would not receive it. You had convinced yourself that you didn't deserve it and just closed yourself off to what I was trying to give you.  


So many of my children get caught in that.  Life beats you up and satan lies to you and you think you have to earn my gifts.  Since when is a gift earned?  Do you earn your birthday gifts each year?  No, a gift, by definition is something you have not earned but that someone wants to bless you with.  


I am so glad that you are finally willing to receive some of the gifts I have for you.  I have more, when you are ready.  I have been storing up gifts for you for years and hoping and waiting for the day that you would be ready to receive them.  You have only seen the tip of the iceberg.  


I love you so much and I want to lavish you with gifts. You know how I say that I will bless you to overflow?  That is the kind of gifts and blessing I am talking about.  I want to pile them up on top of you so you are so covered that all people see is the blessing.  Like a pile of Christmas presents towering and covering you.  So beautiful that people will want it for themselves.  That is the real point.  


I love to bless you because you are my daughter and I love to show you how I love you. But the real point of the blessing is to show others what they could have if they chose.  The real purpose of the blessing is to share it.  I will bless you all the days of your life, if you will let me.  I love you daughter.  Stay blessed.

Spending time...

My prayer:
Incredible God.  Your plans and your purpose make so much sense, in hindsight. Looking back, I can see how everything had to happen how and when it did in order to turn out so wonderful. I didn't understand it as it was happening.  I couldn't see the end from the beginning like you can.  All I could see was the delays, the lack of progress.  But now, I can look back and see that everything was just waiting for the right time.  Now, I see how perfect you made it all.  Now I can see you purpose in it all. 


God I pray that you continue to help me to be better at trusting that you are working everything out, before I see how it is going to work out.  Even when it takes a LONG time, help me to remember nights like tonight where it all seems so clear and I "get it." 


Thank you God for always knowing what is best and when is best.  Thank you for making me wait for best even when I want what is right now.  Waiting for your best is always better.


I love you God and I am all yours.


What God Said Tonight:
Time matters  a lot more to you than it does to me.  I have always been and will always be.  In the landscape of eternity, time really has no meaning.  Time is a series of artificial benchmarks that don't have any meaning other than to categorize your day, your life.  


Stop being so time conscious.  Spend your time wisely but don't keep one eye on the clock.  Time is important only in how you spend it not in how much has passed.  Time is a currency that is more valuable than gold but is infinite.  Spend your time wisely.  


Spend time with me.  Spend time with your family, with your friends. Spend time focused on the things that matter.  Don't waste time.  Don't throw time away.  It is far too valuable for that.  But don't save time up or put it off.  It is infinite in your life but there will never be another now.  There will never be another opportunity to do what you are experiencing and doing right now.  Even one second later, it is changed and different.  


Now is fleeting and should be cherished.  Now is all you really have.  But with me, you have an infinite number of nows.  I don't mean to get so deep but it is important to understand what time is and what it isn't.  I am in all times at once  My now is infinite.  Don't stress so much about time but be a wise steward.  Care for it as carefully as you do your money.  


I love you daughter and I want to spend all of the time that you will allow me to with you.  I love to spend time with you. You and me forever.

Confidence...

My prayer:
Mighty creator and King. My healer and teacher.  My Father and my friend. Today was tough but we made it to this time together.  I love ending every day with this quiet time with you.   I love that it is always a surprise, that I never know what I am going to say, let alone what you are going to say.  I love that it is just a time when I get to share my heart with you and I get to hear your heart.


Tonight I am grateful that you are in me and in my life.  Tonight I am grateful that no matter what happens, how hard life can be, no matter what people say or think about me, I know that you love me.  I know that you think I am wonderful.  Thank you God for telling me over and over that you love me until I finally believed it. Thank you for making your love more relentless than my doubt.  I love you God.


What God Said Tonight:
What was hard about today? It was not that there was so much to do.  You have had days much more full than this.  Your attitude slipped today and that is why you struggled.  You forgot to praise me.  You forgot that all of this favor is only because I love you.  You got complacent and when your attitude was off and things didn't go quite your way, you got frustrated and discouraged.  


Don't be discouraged. Today was not as bad as you think. You just need to re-frame a bit.  Remember who I am. Remember who you are. Remember that you are a Royal Priesthood and the first son of the most high God.  


That is why you have had so much favor.  You have had the favor because there is a lot we need to do.  I need you to remember who you are at all times so you have the confidence to do what is next.  I need you to have the confidence of knowing who you are, even when no one else knows.  Even when no one sees value in you, I need you to know where your value comes from and walk with confidence.  


These next things that we are going to do are going to take a lot of confidence and there will not always be people there to tell you are doing well or that they  are proud of you.  You will have to be motivated and satisfied with my approval and my direction.  You will have to be satisfied with doing right and doing well.  I need you  to be able to stand and walk independent of the support of others.  For awhile, you will need it.  


It is going to feel a bit like a trek through the desert but I will be your oasis.  Learn this one thing and you will accomplish many great things in the future.  The plan on your life is unchanged and it is destined.  I love you sweet daughter.

Basic need...

My prayer:
Awesome God, you gave me another fantastic day and I am grateful.  I am also so tired I can't even spit. No matter how tired I am, I still want to hear from you.  You are food to my soul.  Tonight is all you God.  What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:
I am one of your basic needs.   I am food. I am water.  You were created to need me.  You cannot live a complete life without me.  Many try and they are miserable. 

You were created to hunger for me.  You were created to thirst for me.  You are specially crafted and created to fit with me perfectly.  I am your true soul mate.  I made you for me.  We fit like hand in glove, like peas and carrots.  We are meant for each other. 

I love you so much and I am glad you took a little time to meet tonight even though you were so tired. I am always so glad when we get to spend time together.  You are complete with me. 

Rest knowing that I complete you.  Rest knowing I love you.  Rest knowing that I will never leave you. Rest knowing that I am the light in your life and I will guide you always.  Rest knowing that this thing with you and me is real and forever.  I love you, now rest.

Covenant family...

My prayer:
My awesome God.  This weekend went too fast! I have a lot more I want to do, including sleep! :) Oh well, you always give me everything I need to meet the challenge of each day so I will trust that I will have enough of whatever I need for tomorrow. 

I love you God.  Plain and simple.  I love that you are who you are.  I love that you don't have hidden agendas.  I love that while you are so big that you seem mysterious, in reality you are an open book (literally) to any of us who want to know you. 

I love that you have given us so many promises of a good life.  I love that you have given us the ability to have and eternity with you.  I love that you have thought of and think of everything. 

My God, I can't think of anything I don't love about you, unless it is your timing.  You know I hate to wait.  But then again, I know your timing is always perfect.  I can always see that in hindsight.  Eventhough I don't like the wait, your timing is perfect, so really I even love that about you.

I love how you love me.  I love how you take care of me.  I love how you provide for me.  I love how you bless me.  I love how you teach me. I really do. 

I pray God that you continue to guide me this week, continue to pour out your favor on me.  I pray God for your help at work this week.  I pray that you help me see every opportunity to help people around me.  I pray God that you keep me living in divine health.  I pray God that you do all of that so I can accomplish whatever you have for me to do this week.  Thank you God.

What God Said Tonight: 
Three is a family walking through the desert.  Can you see them?  they are wearing blankets wrapped around them.  It is a mother, a father and a young boy traveling.  They are pushing a cart that is full.  They are tired but happy to be together.  They are my children.  They have a purpose and a destiny.  The journey to their destiny is not easy and it is not pleasant but because they are together they can  endure. 

You are not meant to live this life alone.  You are meant to live this life in family, in covenant agreement with the family around you.  I know you have a damaged idea of family from natural experiences, but you have been getting more and more delivered and healed from that. 

I have a great blessing waiting in the wings for you as soon as your are ready. Are you ready?  Can you feel the day?  Can you see the comfort of having a family around for the journey? 

I love you daughter so very much.  I have plans to fulfill every last desire of your heart.  I am in no hurry.  There is a time and a season for everything and it is not too late.  I am always on time.  I will see this accomplished in your life.  I will see you with every dream fulfilled. Do not lose hope.  The years of waiting will seem like a flash.  They will seem like nothing. 

I love you so much.  I want to give you so many great things.  Rest your head on my shoulder and receive my comfort, my peace and my love.

Focus...

My prayer:
All mighty, all powerful and all knowing God of all creation.  My God, I am worrying over a lot of things tonight and you say to worry over nothing and pray over everything.  So, I pray over everything tonight God. 

I pray over the world, the tragedies, the environmental troubles, the wars, the hunger, the sickness and the people involved in each of them.  I give it all up to you God and ask that you heal, repair, restore and provide. 

I pray over my church and our expansion tomorrow.  I pray God and ask that you make it all go smoothly and that people are drawn to you there.  I pray God that you help me to be a blessing to everyone I meet. 

I pray God for provision for friends who are struggling. I pray God for healing for friends who are sick.  I pray God for direction for friends who are lost.  I pray God for your love to surround all of us. 

I pray God for the animals.  Animal cruelty breaks my heart in ways that I can't even face.  God I pray that you watch over the animals and keep them safe from anyone who would hurt them maliciously. 

I pray God for protection for all of your children.  Keep us safe and sound. I pray God for hope for anyone who has lost hope.  I pray God for wisdom for anyone who needs it. 

I pray God above everything else that your will is done and that you be actively present in my life.  I pray God that your presence is so tangible and evident that people can't help but notice you.  I pray God that your presence show through me, covering my flaws, so people only see you. Once they see you, really see you, I know they will want you in their lives too.  Who wouldn't want the God that is love in their life, if they really knew you. 

I love you God.  That is everything I can think of, everything I am worrying about.  I give it all to you.  Thank you God for being big enough to handle everything.

What God Said Tonight:
Goodness daughter, you do have a lot on your mind tonight.  I will take care of it all.  I am in charge and I determine the outcome even though sometimes it may not feel like it.  Receive my peace tonight. 

These are good times.  Truly they are good times.  There are always things you can worry about, things to get upset about, but if you turn your focus to me and look on all of the good that is also here, even right now tonight, your spirit will lift and you will be able to celebrate with me, with us tonight. 

There is so much good right now.  Don't let the joy of it be stolen by worry and by focusing on the problems.  Don't sweep the problems under the rug, give them to me.  And then, rest, celebrate, look with joy on what I have done in your life.  It is ok to celebrate even when everything isn't perfect. 

I love you daughter.  I want to enjoy this time with you but I can't if you are stuck in worry and focused on the problem.  Look at me, see me, the solution, and the problem won't matter anymore. 

Have I ever not solved a problem you have brought to me? Sometimes it takes longer than you want but think about it, have I ever not taken care of a problem once you have brought it to me?  I always have and I always will. 

So, rest, enjoy.  Tomorrow is going to be a lot of fun, but only if you are looking at me and not the problems.  Love you more than life.

Truth and lies...

My prayer:
Awesome, amazing, incredible, giving, loving, victorious God!  Another great day! Thank you for every blessing God,  I have NO complaints.  I LOVE YOU!!! 

I was wondering something today.  I was wondering why it is so easy for me to see how amazing other people are and how hard it is to see or believe that there is anything amazing in me.  I look at my friends and I see the most giving, loving, talented and truly amazing people that I can imagine.  To me their awesomeness is so obvious but for the most part, they don't see it in themselves and they have a hard time believing me when I tell them.  Similarly, when they tell me great things about me, I assume it is just cause they are super nice people, not because the things they are saying are actually true. 

God, I often pray to see others through your eyes and you have given me those eyes.  I pray tonight that you help me and others see ourselves through your eyes.  God help me to see the truth about me, the good and the areas for improvement.  I pray for wisdom and understanding.  I think if we, if I, could see myself in truth, so many other things wouldn't be an issue and I could focus on the things that really need the work.

I love you God and I love this life you have given me.  I love the people you have put in it.  I love the opportunities you have given me.  I love the privilege of getting to know you, talk to you and hear from you.  That is really what makes it all worthwhile.  What is on your mind tonight sweet Father?

What God Said Tonight:
Ahh my daughter, the human condition is strange sometimes.  I see you covered in the blood of my Son's sacrifice so to me you are perfect.  You see yourself uncovered and you see the flaws.  When you look at yourself without the covering of my blood you will see every dark area, you will see every flaw.  They will seem so big that you are likely to see things that are not even there. 

Your enemy, satan, wants you to see those things.  He magnifies those things.  If he can get you to believe that they are the truth, that those dark areas are the true you, he can discourage you to a point of despair. 

Look at the blood not what the blood is covering.  The blood is the truth of your life.  My covering is the truth of who you are.  The truth is you accepted my forgiveness and you are forgiven.  The truth is that you are my adopted child and that makes you amazing.  The truth is that all of my children are amazingly gifted because they have my characteristics.  They mimic the Father.  They reflect me.  As my reflection, they are amazing. 

I am the truth.  Your reflection of me is the truth.  Believe the truth and not the lie.  Believe me, not the one who would see you fail and die in despair.  Believe the one who loves you not the one that hates you.  Believe me who wants to see you succeed, not the enemy who is desperate to see you fail. 

I love you so much.  You are the most precious thing to me. Your life means everything to me.  Your future is carefully planned by me.  Rest again and we will talk more tomorrow.  My love.
