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.

Scared and called...

My prayer:

There are times God, like now, where I feel so inadequate. I guess that is the side effect of stepping out in faith for you. When I agree to do things that I know I am not capable of but you have said to do it...SCARY! 

It is so much easier when you prepare me to do something and then I get to use my gifts and skills to make it happen. That is a lot of fun and well within my comfort zone. 

But this, this thing you have me doing, there are so many parts to it that I simply can't do. You have to show up and take care of it or it will fail. And I know you don't want it to fail. I don't want it to fail. It can't fail. It is too important. 

God, I believe without a doubt that you asked me to do this. I know that you destine me to succeed and I am choosing, with everything I know how, to trust that you will work it out. 

What God Said Tonight:

I have never left you and it is all happening on my time schedule. I have everything prepared. Your job is to follow my lead. I will put in front of you each thing that you need to do as you need to do it. I will continue to bring around you the people you need to help. I will make you and this succeed because it is in my heart to do so. 

Are those the assurances you needed to hear tonight my daughter? I am happy to tell you as often as you need it. But me telling you doesn't make it more true. It is true no matter whether I tell you or not. 

I will not let you down. I will see you succeed. I don't call you to things to leave you and watch you fail. I only call you to things that will further my kingdom and build your character. I love you.

Closed door...

My prayer:

So God, I gave up on something today. But, I think it was smart to give up on it. You know I am not a quitter and I hate admitting defeat; but sometimes, it is better to walk away than to try to force something to work that was not created to work in the first place. 

Knowing it was the smart thing to do does not make it easy. I wish I had been smarter to begin with to avoid the wasted time on this thing for the last three months. I wish I would have known then what I know now. I wish I would have spent more time asking you about it and less time asking you to bless it. 

Wishing doesn't change anything but maybe I have learned something for next time. I ask that you help me to remember the lessons learned on this so I don't have to repeat them in the future. I would really rather not ever have to experience this again.

What God Said Tonight:

Situations are complicated and just because you choose to walk way from something that is not working does not mean you give up, necessarily. Sometimes following my will and my best for you means walking away from things and situations that you thought you wanted. 

You so often pray that I open every door that I want open in your life and I close every door I want shut. This, my dear, was a closed door from the beginning. It just took you a few months of banging your head against it to convince yourself it was truly closed. 

Leave the closed door behind, no regret, no guilt and move forward to the open door in front of you. I will guide you and direct you. I will show you the open doors. 

But, please do not go back to the closed door and bang your head against it any more. It is closed for a reason. Not because you or anyone else did anything wrong but because I have a better way for you.

Listen more...

My prayer:

All knowing God. We are all, me very much included, trying to figure out this thing called life. We are trying to figure out what to do, when to do it, how to do it. We are trying to understand our purpose and your plan for us. We always have more questions than answers. But you have all of the answers. You know the end from the beginning. 

That is why I seek you so continually on everything. I have a brain and I try to use it to the best of my ability but I also have a teacher who has the answer key to the test. I understand that you can't tell me everything whenever I ask. Then I would never learn or grow and I would still be an infant spiritually. But, I sure do appreciate when you do answer. 

I am so grateful for all the times you told me to turn left, do that next thing, don't do that other thing, and to love always. Your daily or near daily assurances of being on the right path are truly precious God. Without that, during the times in my life that I have not been able to hear you, I am truly frightened. Life without your guiding voice is nearly intolerable. 

Thank you God for your voice, your direction, you wisdom and your help.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your ever present help. 

You are right, I don't always speak. Sometimes I want you to think things through, step out in faith, try it out on your own. However, that doesn't happen nearly as often as you think it does. Most of the time, I am talking to you and trying to help but you are not listening. You are distracted by the situation or the worry. Worry is a big part of what keeps you from me in the midst of challenges in life. 

When you come to me, worship me, rest in my peace, I can sweep away that worry and you can hear my voice. Worry is a load clanging thing that keeps you from hearing me. 

There are other things that keep you from hearing me. Don't let the distractions and worry rob you of the wisdom and help I want to give you. Life is hard but it does not have to be as hard as you think it does. 

Listen more, worry less, and you will see the way out much more quickly. 

Love you... rest now. We will talk more later.

Whole again...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I love you and worship you. I am in awe of who you are and how you love me. Life is crazy right now but you are my peace. I come into your presence and I find peace, joy, hope, love, and comfort, every time. 

I may not have all the answers but I have you and that is better than having the answers. You are wonderful and all that I could ever need. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

I love you too my daughter and I want to see you completely restored. 

My children have been relying on patches to heal their hearts, their bodies, and their souls for too long. I want to completely restore you. Patches fail, eventually. They leak and they fail. I will see you completely restored so that you are like new. 

I love you and I will see you whole, with nothing missing and nothing lacking. That is what I want for you and that is what I will give to you if you will accept it. Come to me and let me make you whole again.

Be brave...

My prayer:

Miracle working God. I don't think I will ever stop being amazed at you and how you work everything out. Thank you for the new perspective tonight. Those things that I was seeing as failures and disappointments are really nothing more than preparation for what you are going to do next. 

Now, I have heard hundreds of sermons with that theme but there is a real difference between hearing it and living it. 

I pray for your guidance and help to let go of any lingering bitterness and disappointment. God, I declare right now that I will refuse to let disappointment hold me back from the future you have for me. I refuse to allow anything to get between me and your best for me. I am all yours and I want all that you have for me. 

What God Said Tonight:

There is more that I have to teach you my daughter. There is more that I have to show you. You have taken a step tonight and it is good but there is more. 

I have waited for the right time and the time is now. You are about to be released into a future and a hope that you have not yet imagined. I will not let you be hurt, I will protect you but you will have to be courageous. You will have to be wiling to risk failure. You will have to be willing to step out when you don't see the ground in front of you. 

I know I am asking a lot. I would not ask it if I did not need it from you to go where we need to go. I have called you for a purpose and a plan and this is it. 

There are many tomorrows that we will walk together and there are many challenges but the first step forward can only occur when you let go of yesterday. Your past is your preparation and is your base. It should propel you into your future, not hold you back. If it is holding you back, you are holding onto it. 

Let go of the things in the past and reach forward for what I have for you. You will not be disappointed. It is better than what you have today and it is better than what you have imagined. Be brave and step out with me.

Satisfied...

My prayer:

Hi God! I am satisfied tonight God. I am tired but not worn out. I am full but not too full. I am at peace. Thank you for this week and for today. Thank you that I get to rest tomorrow. Thank you for reminding me every day that I am not in this fight alone. You are always with me and on my side. What more could I possibly need?

What God Said Tonight:

We are on the road to victory and that road is tiring but good. I am taking you places you cannot imagine, but we will go there tomorrow. 

Tonight is a good time to rest in my presence and refill. I will wrap my arms around you and lay your head against my chest. I will feed you from my word and I will give you living water for your thirst. I will give you peace for the struggle you have been in and rest for your weariness. 

I will love you above all things because you are mine and I am yours. You are my princess and I put you on a pedestal. I will not let anyone take you down. You are made in my image and covered in my blood and there has never been a more beautiful site than you my child. I love you.

Before the revelation...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Awesome day. Awesome run. Awesome ministry. Awesome work. Awesome friends and awesome food. Awesomely worn out! 

Thank you God for an awesome day and for being the definition of awesome. 

What God Said Tonight:

It is a time of awakening and a time to see what I have been working on for so long. The time is almost here. So many things will be made clear when you see what has been happening behind the scenes. Get ready for a lot of "aha" moments. 

You will begin to understand the reason for the things that have been happening. I know you always want to know the "why" behind things. You will be getting that "why" very soon. 

I love you my daughter and I never hide things from you with malice. It is only for a season in order to accomplish what it needs to accomplish. I will always share with you the truth at the soonest moment that I can. 

In the moments of waiting, in the moments before the revelation, I ask for you trust and for your faith. I ask that you continue to act as if you already know the answer, not because you do but because you trust that I do. I will never let you down my love.

Season of trouble...


My prayer:

Another tough day that ended well God. Thank you for bringing me through. 

I sure hope this season of troubles is over pretty soon. It is wearing me out! 

But then, when I am at the end of what I can do, that is often right when you step in. God I hand over, willingly, every tough situation in my life and in the lives around me tonight and ask that you take the wheel. Be in charge. Ensure your will is accomplished. I have no greater desire than to see your will accomplished here on earth. 

I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

There is a time for every season and no season lasts forever. 

This latest wave of trouble is to keep you from your promised land. You can stand and fight, calling on me to take you through the battle or you can run. If you run, you know the likelihood that you could get out is very low. If you stay and fight, I will see you victorious.

Do not grow weary in well doing. Only rest your head on me with the calm assurance that I will work it all out.

Tenacious...

My prayer:

THANK YOU GOD FOR ANSWERED PRAYER!! You definitely provided a way when there was no way. You are wonderful, amazing, powerful, loving, and everything that I need God. THANK YOU!!!

What God Said Tonight:

I am rejoicing with you my daughter. There is nothing more that I like than seeing my children triumphant 

Thank you for not losing hope and walking in faith. Thank you for coming back to me time and again when things were not working. You never gave up and that tenaciousness is a great quality. It will get you far in this life and beyond. 

I like tenacious people.. The woman with the issue of blood was tenacious. The one who knocks and keeps on knocking is tenacious. 

If there is something you want or need, don't give up asking until you find it. I will always provide an answer for every last thing that you need. Taking care of you is one of my favorite things. 

Good night my tenacious daughter.

God's heart...

My prayer:

Amazing Father. Thank you for the revelation today. 

As I think about it, no rational human being could truly experience your love and choose to walk away from it...could they? When I look at the people that I know that don't know you or have not chosen you, I have to wonder if it is because I am not showing them your love. I have to wonder if I am not being a good enough representative. Because, if they really understood how amazing life is with you in it, they would have to say yes to you...I think? 

God, I ache for them and I ache for you. 

What God Said Tonight:

I showed you the pain of that rejection today not to bring condemnation and not to point a finger but only to help you see my heart. 

I love you and I want you to know me as well as I know you. I know every cell in your body and I know your thoughts before  you think them. I want you to know me like that too. I want greater intimacy and sometimes that will be filled with joy, like last Friday. Other times, I need to show you my pain, like today. There will be times when I show you other things, not to bring any type of judgement but jut so you get to know me. 

You know my word, you have learned my nature, now I want to show you my heart. I love you.

Saturday, July 20, 2013

Coming soon...

My prayer:

Awesome God! Are you really going to do this? Am I about to experience exceedingly, abundantly, above all I could ever hope for in a real way?! Is this thing real? Are you really about to show me in no uncertain terms that NOTHING is impossible? 

It seems like it is all coming together but I am almost afraid to get too excited. It seems crazy and wonderful and seems like a true fulfillment of your promises. I am excited, I am anxious, I am afraid of being disappointed. 

My hope is in you God.

What God Said Tonight:

I have never made a promise to you that I did not have full intention of fulfilling. So the answer to every question above is YES.

The way that it comes about may or may not be in alignment with how you envision it. But it is coming about and it is coming soon. 

I have prepared your for this time and this season and you are about to see the fulfillment of many dreams, not only your own. 

I am done sitting back. I am about to move in this world in a way that will leave no doubt as to who I am and what I can do There will be no more excuses.

Greatness...

My prayer:

What a fantastic night God! Good friends, laughter, prayer, answered prayers, worship and you centered in it all. Does not get better than that! Thank you for arranging such a wonderful time to wrap up this pretty challenging week. You are SO GOOD to me!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

I have greatness for you that you cannot imagine. I have stretched your imagination just so that when you reach where we are going, you will be able to possibly comprehend it. 

I have promised you many things and I will keep every promise. There is nothing I won't do for you. There is nothing that I won't give to you. 

You are my precious child and I love you. Prepare for great wonderfulness to fill your life to overflow. It is coming your way now.

Lies...

My prayer:

Awesome God. There is one thing that I really hate and that is being lied to. I was lied to a lot today and it left me angry and frustrated. No matter what the truth is, I would rather hear that and deal with it than to be lied to. 

God, help me to know how best to respond. I am not sure how to love in the face of a lie but I don't want to get bitter either. I want to be able to let this go but I am having a hard time. 

Thank you God for your help and thank you for always listening.

What God Said Tonight:

What is good about your frustration is that it is with the lie, not with the person who told you the lie. You have correctly identified the enemy and that is the lie and the Father of all lies. 

That is why it makes you so angry. Lies are evidence of satan workng on this earth. I hate lies too. I hate that they show his foothold in peoples lives. 

That being said, none of you are perfect and as I extend grace and mercy to you, so also you should extend grace and mercy to others. Come against the lie but don't come against the person. The person needs your compassion and he needs my strength. He needs to know a love that will never fail him instead of a lie that always will. 

It is not easy my child, that I know.

Restoration...

My prayer:

I am unspeakably grateful for what you are doing in my life right now God. You are restoring things that I lost of hope of ever seeing restored. It makes me realize, at an entirely new level, that ALL things are possible with you. 

I love you like crazy God. THANK YOU

What God Said Tonight:

I am a God of restoration. The things that were taken from you were never meant to be taken from you. That was the agenda of your enemy.It was not my agenda. 

And now, in this season, I will bring it all back to you and more because now, you need it. You need to have all of your strength, all of your health, and all of your faith for this next season. For what we are going to do next, you will need all of it and you will still need to lean on me for everything. 

But, don't worry, it will be wonderful and worth every bit of effort. 

I will always provide you with everything you need. I am your provider. I am your restoration, I am your redeemer and I love you more than anything.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

All in..

My prayer:

All knowing God. I am thinking tonight about the many opportunities right now for me and people I know where we have to make a choice. We either step out in faith for the crazy new thing that might be amazing or might blow up in our face OR we leave things as they are and settle for the status quo. 

You know me God, I am almost always the first to step out for the new thing. But, I have never been quite this happy before. I never really understood the saying that good is the enemy of great until now. When things are going good, it is harder to risk the good for the promise of great.

But, I also know me. No matter how good something is, I will get bored eventually if I don't have the "new thing" to get excited about. And, if I don't step out and try, I will always wonder, "what if." I promised myself a long time ago that I would not live a life of what ifs.

So, whatever you want to do God, I am up for it! Let's step out onto the water together. With you by my side, I will not sink.

What God Said Tonight:

I have need of people who are all in. I love all of my children but to do what I need to do, I need some sold out, all in, totally dedicated folks. I am calling you to one of those.

I am glad you are up for it because we have some amazing things to do together. It will take trust, it will take obedience, but I promise you will never regret it.

You and me forever my child.

Similarities...

My prayer:

Hello God my teacher. I hear you, I promise. I may not be the smartest tack in the box but you only have to tell me things three or so times before I catch on that you are trying to teach me something. 

I heard you loud and clear today that I have to learn to receive better. It is so much easier to give than receive. To allow someone to bless me for no reason, that is really tough for me. But, I love to bless other people for no reason and I get disappointed when they won't receive it. 

I am trying to be better with this God, even though it is not comfortable. I know what you have said and what you say about the balance of giving and receiving and I heard you before, but I thought that was for other people. Turns out it was for me too.

What God Said Tonight:

Everything I say to you is for you and for other people. 

You would be surprised how little variance there really is in the human population. You were all made in my image. You have all come from the same ancestors. You all have physical, emotional, and spiritual similarities. 

Your similarities far outweigh your differences. You only think you are different but at the heart you are all one. Your life is your own but your experiences and reactions are not so different from your neighbors. Look for the similarities and you will find them. Find them and you can build relationships on them. 

I love you.

God's warehouse of blessings...

My prayer:

What a wonderful day God. Thank you for every minute of it. I love you and I love this world that you made for us. It is so beautiful. 

I am grateful for days like today when I get to really get out and enjoy what you have made. The trail was beautiful, the waterfalls, the lush green plants, the beautiful wild flowers. Even the rain was beautiful! And I got to share it with someone I love more than life. It doesn't get much better than that. 

Thank you God for simple pleasure like today and the time and freedom to enjoy them.

What God Said Tonight:

I have many gifts for you that I have stored away. I have little jewels like today that I bring out for you whenever you have the time to enjoy them. I love to bless you. I love to give you joy and happiness. I love to make you happy. You are my child and your happiness, success, and health (physical, emotional, and spiritual) are my top priorities. 

I will never run out of blessings for you. I will always have more. 

This life, while it can be hard at times, Will also be a tremendous joy for you as my child. I have such great things in store. Yes, things for you to do and experiencc but also great blessings to make the journey worth the fight. 

I love you now and forever.

Healing...

My prayer:

Awesome healing God, Jehovah Rapha. I pray your healing power in my own body tonight God. I thank you that you are the miracle healing God and that you took my sickness onto you. I thank you God for the gift of healing that you so freely give and I receive it in the name of Jesus Christ. God, I love seeing you heal people that I get to pray with. I love seeing your healing power in their lives. Tonight I need that power for me. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

My healing is for everyone including you. You do not have to qualify. You do not have to earn it. You only have to receive it. You only have to believe and trust me to take care of it. 

The pain will go. It is only a symptom. I am going to the root tonight and I will resolve the issue, if you are ready. That is important, are you ready? Are you ready to let go of it? 

Don't answer quickly, think it through. If you are ready or when you are ready, it will be gone. 

I love you and I would have you live in divine health all the days of your life. I never bring sickness. But I can only bring healing when you are ready to be healed. 

I love you and I am with you in this and all things.

My only job...

My prayer:

SO excited we made it to the Sabbath God! This was a LONG week and I know a big part of it was me not having the right attitude. I did try to improve my attitude, but failed most of the time.

It is so weird. I know what I should do, understand that I am only hurting myself by not doing it and yet, I still don't do it! God, I frustrate myself sometimes. I don't know how you put up with me. 

I am unspeakably grateful that you do put up with me. Your patience and love mean everything to me. I ask that you help me refill tomorrow so I can improve my attitude and be a blessing and not a curse to the people around me.

What God Said Tonight:

You have a lot of words and a lot of thoughts running through your mind tonight. Let's start by sweeping those away so you can hear me more clearly. Let's clean out the corners of your mind so there is room for me to fill you. 

Now, that is better. I am your peace and your rest and I will make sure that you receive all that you need if you make the time to be with me. I need you to do more than rest this Sabbath. I need you to be fully concentrated on me. I need us to spend some real time together where I can fill your mind and your spirit. 

I will give you rest but come to me. Be with me. Listen to me. I will give you all that you need. You do not have to try to fill your needs. I will take care of you. You only need to seek me and I will take care of everything else. Focus on me tomorrow. That is your only job and your only responsibility for the next 24 hours.

Eternity decision...

My prayer:

This was a super long day today God. Thanks for getting me through it. Thanks for giving me wisdom and insight throughout the day. And, thanks for the small gems of sweetness and goodness that sprinkled throughout the day. 

You are wonderful and I would not want to live this life without you.

What God Said Tonight:

You will never have to live without me. Your choice, your decision to live with me in your life and in your heart is an eternity decision. It is one that lasts forever. 

You can only lose me if you walk away from me. And even then, as long as you come back to me, there will be no problem. I am yours and you are mine forever. That will not change and you can rely on it. 

No other is no thing that can keep me from you. there is no barrier or enemy that can keep me from you. You are the only one who can keep me from you. 

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Phase one and phase two...

My prayer:

Awesome God, I love you. I feel like I have been coming to you with so many needs lately. Tonight I want to focus on how wonderful you are. Your mercy that is unending, your grace which is so undeserved, your patience which is monumental, and your love which is the greatest and most powerful thing in the universe leave me in awe. 

When I take the time to really think about it, I can't believe that I get to know you, talk to you, listen to you and live this life with you. Then, when I think I might be wrapping my mind around part I start to think about your sacrifice that has made it possible for me to live forever with you...mind blown!

I love you, I am in awe of you, I worship you Lord of ALL!

What God Said Tonight:

Life, this life is step one. There is so much more for you. Yes, we will make this life that you are living epic. We will do such amazing things together. But, as you have seen, amazing things have  a short half life. People forget, even when I part a sea and take them to safety, they forget. 

So, in phase one of this journey, we will do amazing things together and people will be stunned and amazed and some will be changed. Many will forget. 

Then, in the next stage, when we are living together in the manner that I intended you to live from the beginning of time, when we are together with no barrier. When we live without an enemy stalking you every minute...in that phase two, every minute will be a wonder and a tremendous event. Love will rule that place. Joy will be our breath. 

I am excited by what we will do in phase one but I am anxious for phase two. I love you my sweet child.

Mirrors...

My prayer:

Amazing God of truth. throughout my life, I have begun to realize that the people who I have the hardest time dealing with are often A LOT like me. 

God, I really struggled with someone today, not for the first time, and I know that the things that make me crazy in her are present in me too. And that makes me more angry! It should give me grace and mercy when dealing with her. Instead it makes me want to "fix" her. You know how you say we should remove the plank from our own eye before we try to remove the speck from someone else? Well call me Ms. Plank.

God I pray for your help in removing the plank from my eye. Help me to be less controlling, less overbearing, less of a know it all. These are not attractive qualities and they are not things that show people your love. Help me God to be more accepting, more supportive and more open to others ideas of how to do things. 

Through this all God, please give me the grace and mercy to relate to people who share this struggle with me.

Thank you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes I give you people in your life to be mirrors to you. They are there to help you see what you need to change. How can you know what needs to change if you can't see it? 

You are right to recognize that your irritation and anger is merely a symptom of recognizing your faults in the mirror. I have heard your prayer for help and of course I will help you. 

You are to focus on the replacement virtues. I will concentrate on removing the old. The old ways are death and the new ways are life. You have chosen life and I have come to give it to you. I will flood you with the grace and mercy you desire because you want it for others and because it is yours as a result of being mine. 

Don't ever miss an opportunity to get closer to me.Every step is worth it.

God's voice...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I can't thing of a single thing to talk about tonight. I know, that is shocking and completely unlike me! Maybe it is a good cue that tonight I should just listen?

Love you Daddy!

What God Said Tonight:

Seek to hear me and I will speak every time. I am continually speaking. You are not always listening. 

You have to concentrate to hear my voice over the noise of life. I don't shout and I don't beat you over the head. My voice is quiet but mighty.

My voice creates reality. My voice changes your circumstances. My voice created the world. My voice is mighty and powerful and will bring you into your future. 

Listening to my voice, hearing my voice, is one of the most important things you can do. The more you listen, the easier it is to hear. When you become truly sensitive to my voice, you can hear me at anytime. It let's me help you all day, not just in our quiet times together. 

Keep an ear out for me. You will be surprised by what you hear. 

Sunday, July 7, 2013

The next level of you...

My prayer:

Thank you for today God. Thank you for restoring me. Thank you for helping me. Thank you for the amazing people you put in my life that love me even when I am not so lovable. 

Thank you for having better plans and a better future for me than what I had thought of on my own. Thank you for helping me to see the closed door and thank you for the new open door that you have waiting for me. I trust you in this and in everything.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your hope when you can't see the future. I am your light in the darkness. Stay in my presence here tonight and I will show you great things for your future. I will show you the next steps. I will show you the glory to come. 

You are becoming the next level, the next version of you right now. You are growing and changing even as we speak. I have prepared you, you have stepped out in faith, now is the time to watch what I will do with it all. 

I love you daughter. Stay here with me and I will show you great things, now and forever.

Big but...

My prayer:

I made a decision tonight God. I am going to believe you for everything, even the things where I don't even understand what the problem is, let alone the solution. I am going to believe that you know the answer and that means I don't have to. I am going to believe that you have a plan, or many plans and that those plans are good. 

I will do whatever you tell me to do, no matter how crazy. I will seek you in everything. I will remember to thank you every day. I commit to you these things.

Trusting in your love for me. 

What God Said Tonight:

I love that you trust me and want to follow my will. And, as you know, I will from time to time ask you to do some things, some of which will seem crazy at the time. But, and this is a big but, I don't need robots. I don't need slaves.

I don't need you to only do what I tell you.

I want you to develop your passions. I want you to follow your interests. I want you to build relationships and create things that make you happy. I will bless those things too.

I will bless them because I love you and you have my heart. You don't always have to wait for me to say "go." If you want to "go", go and I will come with you.

I love you now and forever my sweet child.

Open heaven...

My prayer:

God all mighty. I want to concentrate on you tonight. The world, life, the troubles and storms around me are fighting for attention. The thing is, there is not a single thing I can do about them except give them to you and love the people going through.

I give it all up to you God. The troubles, the worries, the needs, the sorrow, the pain, the sickness, and the fear. I give it all to you knowing that you have answers for each and every situation because, you are God all mighty. You are El Shaddai. You are our provider, protector, teacher, Father, healer, and our peace. You are everything we need with  nothing missing and nothing lacking.

I lay it at your feet and wait to hear your voice...

What God Said Tonight:

I am lifting the roof off of the church, off of my people. I am exposing you to the open heaven we have talked about.

Not everyone will be ready and not everyone will be willing but for those who are, a new life, a new existence and a new reality is about to spring forth.

These troubles are nothing more than birth pangs. Some things have to change. Some things have to end in order for this new beginning to come.

I will comfort those who are hurt and I will heal those who are sick. I will provide for those in lack and I will give peace to those who have worry. I will calm their fears in the midst of their battle. And, it will all work for their good.

Let the sun shine in on you as the open heaven comes to earth.

Larger vision...

My prayer:

Mighty God. I have a lot on my mind that I want to talk about tonight but I am not sure how to even begin to organize my thoughts enough to express them. I don't begin to understand what is happening right now. Doors are opening and closing faster than I can even follow. 

God, bottom line, anything and everything that you want, I want too. Anything and everything that you don't want, I don't want either. If there is anything in the middle, that you don't have an opinion about...well that is where it gets confusing. 

God, please give me wisdom and help me to make the choices for your best in my life and that will result in the greatest blessing for those you have put in my life.

What God Said Tonight;

I have a place for you but it is not a static place. It is a place of growth and expansion. What you have seen, what you have done is the very early stages of what we will do. 

Expand your vision as wide as it will go and then expand it further. 

Don't worry about or get distracted by the day to day opportunities right now. There will be plenty and take those you want and ignore those you don't It will not matter in the larger scheme of things. 

In the larger vision, I have everything on track and it will not be derailed.

Shine the light and love...

My prayer:

Hopes and dreams and broken promises. Amazing God above all Gods. Life is hard sometimes. I know, no one ever said that life was supposed to be easy; but sometimes, it is so hard. 

I look around and see so many people that I love who are faced with crazy tough situations right now. They are fighting for their lives and it doesn't always look like they are going to win. I keep telling them that you will make a way for them, and I believe it. But waiting for you to move is so very hard. 

God, I trust you and I know you will work it all out. How do I help until that time comes? What can I do?

What God Said Tonight:

You heard the answer before you finished asking the question. Love them. The best thing to give them as they wait is love. The best thing to give any one at any time is love. 

I would have you love them, wait with them, and assure them that I have not left them. I will work it for their good. Remind them of the times that I have worked out the impossible in their lives before. 

They are in holes of darkness created by their situations and it is so hard to see the light from the bottom of the hole. Shine the light for them and love them. It will help more than you can know.

Get out of your way...

My prayer:

What if God? That is what is going through my head tonight. What if I could live my life in full possession of all of your promises. What if I said to a mountain, move, and it moved? What if I commanded the dead to rise and they did? What if I took dominion over every evil thing in the name of Jesus Christ and watched them flee EVERY TIME? 

I want that God. I want to live out every promise that you have given us. I want to know how to show others to live that way too. 

I love how you bless me and all that you have done in my life but I KNOW there is more and I want it. I want all that you have for me. 

I try to imagine what I could do for people, how I could bless them and it blows my mind. Or, more appropriately, how I could be a part of you blessing them. Just in healing alone. If I lived life in full possession of your promises, EVERY time I prayed for someone, you would heal them. Every time they came in contact with me, they would be healed. I remember where you said with Peter, even when his shadow fell across someone they were healed. I want that. 

Help me get there please.

What God Said Tonight:

There is only one thing between you and living that life and that is you. You have to break free of the chains of what you have been taught. You have to break free of the ideas that have been pounded into your head of what is possible and what is impossible. You have to expand your thinking to allow that there are many things that are possible for which you cannot explain. 

I have great power that transcends logic. You are a student of logic. Logic and science are comfortable and comforting to you. My power cannot be explained by logic. It is truly the antithesis of logic. I don't make sense. 

When you are truly ok with that and accept it, you will see more miracles, more power, more promises fulfilled in your life. When you get out of the way of you, you will find me.

More joy...

My prayer:

What a great night God! Good food and LOTS of laughter. I needed that. 

Thank you for bringing so much joy in my life lately. Things get tough now and then but you always bring joy in the midst of it all and your joy sustains me. It strengthens me. It makes it possible for me to face one more day, no matter what that day holds. There is power in your joy.

What God Said Tonight:

My joy, like my peace is always available for you. It is a choice. I keep never ending wells of both because I know how much you need it to get through this life. 

Don't be shy. come to the well as often as you need to. Come to the well as often as you want to. I will never run out. I will always have more for you.
