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.

Childlike faith...

My prayer:

So many years God of seeking for approval and love. And now, I am just now realizing, that your approval and love has been there for me the whole time. Not because of anything I did or didn't do but because of who you are and what you did at the cross for me. 

All I need to do is accept it. It so simple it is hard. It doesn't fit with how I think about life, reality, you. But, it is true. I know it to the depth of my soul that it is true.
I am ready to walk in the freedom that comes with receiving your new covenant God. I am ready to fully accept all that you have provided for me. I understand that I don't earn your approval or love. I understand that you are 100% on my side no matter what. I am determined to live the rest of my life in that truth.

What God Said Tonight:

You are getting it my child. You are beginning to understand the truth of the new covenant.

Remember when I said that you should come to me like a child. I meant that in many ways. One of the ways is directly related to this. A child has not learned cause and effect. A child has not yet learned that certain behaviors result in certain things.

It takes the faith of child to believe that I paid for all of your sin. It takes the faith of a child to understand what it means to be completely forgiven so that your sins are forgotten. Watch a child, once they have misbehaved, and have been punished or gotten away with it, they move on. They don't dwell over it.

I am sending an anointing to you tonight for childlike faith. With it, you will see the truth of what I have for you.

Truth in love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I don't have the time or energy to spend on anything that is not your truth and that is not real. I don't want to "play" at being a Christian and going through the motions that look good. I want you, I want all of you, unfettered by the trappings of religion that we have placed on you.

I pray that your truth is revealed in every situation. Where we, where I am being deceived, make it plain. Where I have been misled, show me your truth. Where I have followed a path that is not your plan, correct my path. 

I am yours, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

Sharing the truth in love. You have heard me say this many times. But, I want you to listen to it in a new way tonight. Share the truth in love. Truth is in love. Love is the one real truth when that love comes from me.

Your quest for truth, for purpose, for joy, for me is summarized in one constant, love. I loved you so I made it possible for you to be completely redeemed and made perfect in my sight. I loved you you before you were born. I love you.

The more you receive my love, the better you become at loving me and loving others. My love in you creates beauty, peace, healing, and joy that cannot be stopped.

It is that simple and that difficult.

Grateful heart...

My prayer:

It is pretty traditional but I can't help but be thankful to you God, today of all days. Thanksgiving is definitely one of my FAVORITE holidays. Family, friends, food, and grateful hearts. That is some really good stuff. 

Top ten things I am thankful for this year:
  1. You in my life
  2. Amazing friends and family who I get to love and who love me
  3. Your blessing and favor on my life
  4. The opportunity to give to people who need some help
  5. Your healing power and living in divine health
  6. This latest journey to better understand your grace and salvation in my life
  7. Incredible mentors in my life that believe in me and help me to improve
  8. Your call and purpose in my life
  9. Time to rest and to play
  10. My crazy but hilarious cat
I could also just list you ten times and it would be the same thing. Everything wonderful in my life is there because of you and I am so grateful! LOVE YOU.

What God Said Tonight:

Living with a grateful heart will feed your soul and bless the people around you. Living with a hard heart will steal from your soul and hurt the people around you. 

Your life, every life is a mix of blessings and cursings. It is the world you live in for now. However, you get to choose what you focus on and what increases. It is very much the same as the message that you have been hearing about focusing on your strengths. Instead of trying to fix your weaknesses all the time, you can focus on your strengths and utilizie them. When you do, you accomplish so much more. 

It is the same with a grateful heart. When you focus on the blessings, you can do more. It doesn't mean that there are not things in your life that are hard and are not how you want them. It does mean that you can see your life improve as you recognize with a grateful heart, all the blessings you have. 

I love you and I am thankful for you tonight. You are my magnificent child who is clothed in my righteousness. How could I be anything but grateful and in love with you?

Cover of peace...

My prayer:

God, you are so cool! The way you work things together is pretty amazing. 

I never cease to be astounded by you! I love when you let me see how you are working things out. I love it when you give me those behind the scene glimpses of your plan. I love being a part of what you are doing! 

Thank you, love you, in awe of you, My GOD!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Peace. I bring you peace tonight. 

There has been so much striving in your life lately and it has been good. You are going to new levels and it is good. You are stretching and seeking me, which is good. 

But, for one day, twenty four hours, just rest in my peace. Let my peace envelop you. Let my peace guide you. 

I cover you in peace. Let the cover of my peace smother any worry. Let the cover of my peace drown out other voices. Snuggle in with me and rest.

Greatness...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I know it is not quite Thanksgiving yet but I find myself in a very thankful mood tonight. I am especially thankful tonight for the wonderful people you have put in my life. Amazing, talented, insightful, encouraging, loving, smart, and just plain wonderful people! Thank for surrounding me with your best kids God!

What God Said Tonight:

You are in a place that I have saved and determined for you. You can do great things from the place that I have put you. You can see the world changed. You can also do great harm if you choose to. 

I surround you with great people to help you be the best that you can be. I surround you with the best so you can strive for more. 

I have greatness stored in every child of mine. I placed it in them before they were born. When they partner with me it grows. Then I put you all together and wonderful things can happen. 

I love you and all of my wonderful children.

Perfect in Christ...

My prayer:

Pretty fantastic day of favor God! THANK YOU!! A new big contract, a very annoying 9 month project that was completed today, a great work out, and a good book. Nice combination of good stuff. 

I am still wrapping my head around your grace God. I have been thinking today about the fact that you don't see our sin. It is covered in Jesus sacrifice and when you look at us, you see His righteousness and forget our sin. All of it.

I have been trying to imagine what it would be like to not see our sin. Do you still see our sinful behaviors but the sin designation has been covered or do you literally not see it at all? Do you only see us as your redeemed kids, clothed in your righteousness? Just trying to understand.

Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I see you perfected in Christ. I see what you do but I have already paid the price. 

What you do is not my focus. What you do is already taken care of through your salvation. 

Who you are matters to me. I love you.

Different, weird, unique (DWU)...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I need some insight tonight. Why do I get so passionate and so worked up about your truth? Most of the people I know are fine with the status quo and while they enjoy learning more about you, they don't let it drive them nuts. 

For me, when I learn a new truth, I have an intense need to make sure everyone I know understands that truth and I get upset when I can't explain it right. When I see truth, I need everyone to know it. I can't rest until I do everything I can to help them understand. 

As I read that, while it is not comfortable and makes me a bit crazy, maybe it is not a bad thing? Maybe that drive to help people understand your truth is a good thing? But, I don't think the way I approached it today was good. I get so passionate that most people see it as aggressive and it is probably hard for them to hear it.

I ask God that you give me the words and help me to say them in love so more people get to hear your good news and receive the truth of your grace. That is the only way it will really impact them anyway, if your Holy Spirit speaks through me. Help me God to weed through the distractions and keep to your simple truth of grace, mercy and salvation. And if there is anything that you need to change in me to see your truth shared, please feel free to change it. Love you God.

What God Said Tonight:

There are things about you that I designed. Things that I put in you, for a purpose and with a plan. Then there are things about you that are there as a result of the struggles and the experiences of your life. Those are things that I did not necessarily put in you but I can still use them. 

Stop worrying so much about why you are the way you are and start focusing on the good I can do with who you are. I can partner with you and find the right times, the right places and the right situations to ensure that you walking in your full purpose in me. I can match up all that is in you with the needs in my kingdom. 

The needs are many,  you are willing, I can do the math can get you into the right positions. 

Don't worry quite so much about being different. I can use different. It is your uniqueness that makes you perfect for this time and this season. I love you, just as you are. I have positioned you perfectly for what we need to do. I will talk and work through you to see my truth revealed like never before. And, of course, I love you too my daughter.

Wealth...

My prayer:

Love you so much!!!!! Want to hear your voice more than anything else.

What God Said Tonight:

All that glitters is not gold, but gold glitters. I am going to use the wealth of the world in these last days to do what has not been done since the beginning of time. I am going to use the wealth of the world to transform it. I am going to use the wealth of the world to reach the world. 

I own it all, Wealth is nothing special to me but I will use it as the tool and leverage to see my will done. A time of change is coming and in this new season, the power of wealth will be used for good and not for evil. 

I will not need you to fund my ministry. I will fund you to do my ministry. The world has had this concept backwards for many years and it has messed up many relationships. You are about to see what money and wealth can do, if used for the glory of my kingdom. 

Love you.

Fulfillment...

My prayer:

Crazy amount of favor, blessing, and honor today God. I hope they all know that anything I am, anything I do, anything I give that is worth anything is only because you are in me. Thank you for discernment, favor and providing me opportunities that I could not have imagined even a year ago. You are wonderful and living this life with you is amazing. I am humbled in your presence and by your generosity.

What God Said Tonight:

Think about what you did today. You loved it because the whole day was about giving to others. Your giving nature is a reflection of my heart. 

Whenever you align with  who I am and what I think is important, you are fulfilled. That is because you are made in my image. That is the reason that paying attention to the instructions in the Bible about living our life are important, Not out of obedience, I have already forgiven you of every sin you have ever committed and any sin you will commit in the future. But, when you line up your life with the things that I am all about, when you are generous, kind, caring, and full of grace, you will find contentment and joy because you are being true to who you really are. 

Doing right, for those who have accepted me into their lives, should feel good. It should not feel like a burden. If it feels like a burden, check whether you have actually let me in to your heart and then check if the thing you think is good is really of me or just what you have learned to believe is me. 

I don't mean to be confusing. The truth of it is very simple. When I am in you, you are most at peace and filled with joy when you are doing things that I would do. Know me, know my heart and find your fulfillment.

Changing your experience...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I was so frustrated all day and then you give me such WONDERFUL news to end this day. Thank you!!! If ever I needed a bit of good news, today was the day and as always, you came through for me. 

Thank you for never leaving me. Thank you for always showing up exactly when I need you with exactly what I need. I am so grateful that I never have to live, or exist one second without you. Pretty sure I would not make it.

I also need to lift up the people here and around the world who don't have homes tonight God. It is SO COLD here. Please help them find warm places to spend the night. Keep them safe. Keep them protected. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Snow and cold are interesting in that they can be a great source of joy or a source of pain and death. 

You sing songs about winter wonderlands and the joy of playing in the snow. You ski, you board, you snow mobile, laughing all through it and enjoying every minute of it. And then, that same snow, that same storm can steal someone's life. 

That is really how most things in life are. They can bring you joy and life or they can bring you pain and death. What you get is partially a result of what you focus on, how you choose to see it. But what you get is sometimes related to your situation. And sometimes that situation is completely out of your control.  

When I tell you I will turn everything toward your good, that is a big part of what I am talking about. I will turn you from the negative experience of a thing and toward a positive experience of the thing. I will exchange the pain and death experience for a joy and life experience. The circumstance usually doesn't change but your experience of it does. 

Love you my child and I am always on your side.

God's glory is coming...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. What a mixed bag of good and bad today was. I am tired physically, emotionally and spiritually from this day. The one thing that will recharge me and make it all worthwhile is to hear your voice. You are always the best part of my day God. LOVE YOU!!

What God Said Tonight:

My glory is about to rain down on your life. You have experienced my favor. You have experienced my mercy and my grace. Get ready for my glory. 

Glory is not something that can be explained well. It is beyond words. It is beyond the ability to describe. It can only be experienced, using every physical emotional and spiritual sense that you have. 

Part of the reason your day drained you so, is the enemy trying to dull your senses, hoping you do not experience my glory. 

But you are my child. He forgets that you hear my voice and that you would not be able to miss my glory, even if you tried. I will recognize you in my glory and you will recognize me. We know each other and that cannot be taken away. 

I love you child. Rest up for my glory is coming.

Marriage and divorce...


My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am kind of down tonight. 

More reports of wonderful friends after decades of marriage who are getting divorced. I know you hate divorce God. I think it is because it hurts the people involved so much. The people involved in these situations believe they have no other choice. I don't know what to tell them but I do know one thing I can do and that is put it all in your hands. I can't fix it but you can. 

God, I lift up marriages that are in trouble tonight and ask for your miraculous intervention. You tell us God, and we even use it in a lot of our marriage ceremonies, that what you have put together, let no man put asunder. I pray for your healing power in every hurting marriage tonight. I pray that you fill them with your love and remind them how to love each other. I pray that you take all of the impossible situations and make it possible. 

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Marriage works when you build the relationship on me. It works when everything is in it's right place. I designed you to live in relationship and I designed wives and husbands to work together in some pretty specific ways. I did all of that because I knew that it was not good for man to be alone. 

The design was good. The design is good. The trouble is other people make decisions that can and do directly effect you.

I love you and I can heal and restore your marriage. Just relax and let me in to move things into right position. Trust. When you see your spouse changing and doing things differently, trust that I am doing something in him as we speak. I have many blessings coming your way. It will be important to sort out the marriage and living situations before we move out.

It matters...

My prayer:

Thank you for an easy day today God. I have not had one of those in awhile and it was a nice break. 

I don't really have much to talk about tonight. Grateful, as always, that I get to spend quiet time with you at the end of the day. Can't imagine ending the day without spending time listening to your voice. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Your day seemed easy because you followed my lead in prayer this morning. 

There was a lot happening in the spiritual realm today. I know that you were not aware and that is because I had you take care of your part early this morning. Those prayers of protection lasted through the day and provided the line of defense needed to win the battle. 

You don't always know how significant your actions are. When I ask you to do something, there is always an important reason, even though you don't always see what that reason is. I am a God of purpose, all powerful, all knowing and I will never waste your time on things that don't matter. 

So, remember to respond, every time I ask you to do something, no matter how small. It matters. You matter. Love you.

Uncomfortable understanding....

My prayer:

Awesome God, I an grateful for what you are teaching me right now. I am grateful for the new level of understanding of what the Good News really is, what your grace really is, what your salvation really is. To understand that you literally paid for every sin that ever was, ever is or ever will be committed. That once we choose you, we are forgiven, end of story. That we don't ever have to feel guilt, ask again for forgiveness, or work to make our lives right. That all we have to do is to seek you and receive you. 

Everything we ever will need is in you, including any changes that we need. Not that I need to make better choices or I need to work on a step program to get free. No. Those things don't work long term. What changes me is my time with you. In your presence, I get new desires, I get new wisdom, I get new peace, all of which makes me a better (still flawed but better person).

I always had a hard time of understanding why you would ask us to do things that we could not do. To be like Christ, to pray without ceasing, to love you with everything we are and love our neighbors as ourselves all of these things that we try to do, we want to do, but I have never met anyone who could do them consistently. Not if you really get to know the person. I think the answer is in this new understanding you are giving me of your grace and your love. I don't have the answer yet but I feel like I am right on the edge.  

This new understanding is also making me really reassess most everything I have been taught my entire life about you and how to live this life for you. Now that is scary. That is what has me feeling unsure and off center tonight God. What does this mean? What do I do with it?

I pray for your continued help, guidance, understanding, and teaching. Thank you God for always teaching and taking me to the next level.

What God Said Tonight:

You didn't have to do anything to learn this new information except say yes to me and follow my direction. You will not have to do anything more than that for the rest of your life. I will always lead you and guide you.

There are times in your life where it was important for you to understand things at a certain level. That was the level you needed for the things that were in your life at the time. There are things coming that require a new level of knowledge and understanding and I am taking you there to prepare you for those times.

Change is never comfortable but you do not need to be afraid. You do not need to fear what is coming next. I will always take care of you and I will always keep you. I will always make sure you have all that you need.

Don't force it. I know you want this uncomfortable feeling to go away and you want to do whatever you can to speed that up. But that would be the wrong move. Don't force the solutions to this. Rest and trust in me to guide you through.

Saturday, November 16, 2013

All that I need...

My prayer:

God I crave your presence. I crave the intimacy with you that transforms me and my life. I crave time with you. 

Being in your presence is what makes life worthwhile, what transforms me and what fuels me. No matter how I get there, whether in worship, whether in prayer, whether in quiet reflection, whether in the middle of an intense run, in a service, in the middle of the chaos that is life. No matter how I get there, here, with you, the end result is miraculous and addicting. 

LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

What God Said Tonight:

Come here and find your rest. Find your rest in me. Find your joy in me. Find your peace in me. Find your life in me. I have within me all that you need and it is all yours. 

I will not be stingy. I will not withhold from you. I will bless you to overflow. I will love you forever. I will see you healed and saved as a result of all I did at the cross. 

I know things feel like they are spiraling out of control but that is just because a change in regime is coming. The king of he underground who has been sitting at the headgates of earth for years is right now watching us. He is making his last ditch efforts to confuse the world and keep you from living eternity with me. 

But, even now, even in this time, I have all you need. Lean on me, receive my love and know that I am God and I am on your side, always. 

Friday, November 15, 2013

Follow God...

My prayer:

We made it!!! Craziest week ever, so much to do that had to be done, no way in the world it could all get done...in comes my God, the God of the impossible, and here we are, Friday night and EVERYTHING that needed to get done is done. Thank you for ALWAYS taking care of me and the people and the things I care about. Thank you for taking care of mom today God. Thank you for healing her. Your healing power never ceases to amaze me.

What God Said Tonight:

I have a plan and purpose on your life. Never forget that. 

I love you, no matter what, but I chose you for a purpose. I chose you for a distinct plan. I need you to follow my will and my direction to accomplish my will and the purpose I have for you. Don't follow my direction because you feel you have to. Follow my direction if you want to. I only take on willing help. 

But, if you do, if you follow my will and purpose for your life I can promise you satisfaction as you have never known. I can promise success beyond your wildest dreams. I can promise you fulfillment that will never cease. I can promise you that we will do it all together. 

Come, follow me, if you want...

It was worth it...

My prayer:

My  God, your an awesome God you reign, from heaven above, with wisdom, power and love, my God your an awesome God! You do the miraculous every day in my life and I am SO GRATEFUL!!! I live a blessed, favored and miraculous life because of you. Not perfect, you know me, I always want more of you, but SO GOOD! Thank you Jesus!!

What God Said Tonight:

I do know you my sweet daughter. I knew you from before you were born. I created you specifically for this time and this place, knowing all that you would struggle with and knowing the beauty that would come of your victory. 

It was worth it. You may not see that fully now, but one day, when you see the lives that were blessed through your testimony and from your life, you will know it was worth it. 

That is something I hope to show everyone of my children some day. There will be a day when they each get to see the lives they blessed. There will be crowds and crowds of people. You do not understand your influence. You do not understand how one kind act of love can ripple out to effect so many. Thousands, millions, billions and more. 

You reach is infinite in me. Your power is immeasurable in me. I love you so much. Be encouraged tonight that all that you go through, the good the bad and the ugly is blessing others in your victory. Spread the word.

Strength in numbers...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am sitting here tonight completely exhausted but so grateful for all that you are doing. I am especially grateful for the people that you bring into my life. Such amazing, talented, and courageous people! Different cultures, different likes and dislikes, different languages, different goals, but all people, your people trying to live this life the best we know how. 

I lived so many years not recognizing the value of community. I get it know God and it is wonderful! The best part of all is when we gather our community around you, when you are the center and the purpose for our community. That is when things get really beautiful and interesting. LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

There is nothing in the world that is stronger standing alone vs. standing in company. A tree standing alone can be blown over by a wind. But put many trees together and they will hold each other up in the strongest winds. 

You are stronger when you have people around you. You can withstand a bigger storm without falling because of those around you. And, that community, that support, is never one sided. As much as you get from them, they get the same from you. A true relationship gives as much or more than it gets. That is where the strength comes in. 

Be strong in your life through me and your friends. With that combination, you can get through ANYTHING. Love you!!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

River of God...

My prayer:

God of peace. I pray and ask for your peace tonight. SO MUCH...so much to do, so many commitments, so many opportunities, so many challenges, SO MUCH! It is wonderful and overwhelming right now.

I ask for your help to get it all done. I pray for your wisdom as to what to say no to. I pray for your strength to do what needs to be done. And I pray that your love continue to shine through me even though I am running like crazy. Help me to remember to love through it all. 

LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

I am with you and on your side always. 

This is a season but it is only temporary. You will get through this and you will have a testimony to share. You know it is true, we have been here before. 

Breathe deep, listen to my voice, and keep my peace in your heart. You are on a path to an amazing destination and I will see that you arrive on time, fully prepared with all things completed that need to be done. 

Relax into my current for your life. We are in the rapids right now. We will come through it unscathed and meet the lazy river before you know it. 

Love you so much. I will not let you down, ever.

The enemy's path...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I spent so much of today trying to drown out the enemy's voice, I can't wait to just concentrate on your voice tonight. He is so annoying and deceptive. Sometimes he leads me down a path of thought before I even realize it is him. Then, all of a sudden I look around and wonder how I got there!

I am ready for the day when you send him to the lake of fire, never to return. I am truly sick and tired of him. 

Uggh! Enough about him. Let's talk about you. Let's talk about your day and your challenges. Let's talk about your victory. Let's talk about all of the good things in life, and after, that I get to be a part of because I belong to you. 

Father, drown out the voice of the enemy and speak your sweet voice in my heart tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

I can drown out the voice of he enemy with a whisper. One whisper from me is more powerful than the loudest shriek from him. 

But you have a part in it. You choose what you listen to and what you hear. I know that he will try to deceive you. I know he will try to take you down path of destruction and he may even succeed sometimes; but, at that moment when you look around and realize where you are, call out to me and I will always come to get you. I will always rescue you. You never need to be afraid because I am always your way out of any situation. 

I will rescue you and I will love you. I will heal you and I will restore you. I will always bring you home, the second you ask me to. Every time.

Crisis of confidence...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I am having a crisis of confidence tonight. You know that is not often a big problem for me but the last week or so, maybe a bit less, I have just felt off. 

I have been here before and it almost always means you are taking me to a new level, that I am growing. And, as uncomfortable as growth and change is, I am never sorry by the time it is done. I am always grateful for what you have done to change me, mature me. 

But this part, the part where I am not sure what is going on, how I am supposed to react, what I am supposed to do, this part is scary. I am trying to change how I think about it. I am trying to recognize it as an exciting opportunity and that works for short periods of time. But then, something happens or nothing happens and I am not sure what to do. Then I am right back to feeling lost and unsure.

I don't like it but maybe that is the only way to really grow?

I ask for your help God to take me through this, teach me, grow me, and get me to the other side in one piece. God I pray for your mercy for when I get it wrong. 

What God Said Tonight:

Who makes you succeed? Who positions you for greatness? Who has a plan for your life and the plan is good? That is all me. I will see you victorious in all that you do. 

Yes, this is a time of growth because I need you to have more of me in you for this next stage. I need you to walk in a level of authority in me that you have not experienced yet. So, I will stretch you a bit. it may not be comfortable but you know I won't stretch you so much that I break you. You know that I will take care of you in the middle of this. 

This is one of those times that I need you to put one foot in front of the other, trust me, walk through my open doors, turn from my closed doors and do your best. It will be plenty good enough because I am in you and I have already planned this all out. My plans never fail. 

I love you daughter. That will need to be enough for you, for your confidence, for now. You are worth it because you are mine.

Miracles...

My prayer:

It is all about you God. Done.

What God Said Tonight:

And I am all about you. That is what makes our relationship so special and important. I give everything, including my life, for you and you give your everything for me. 

That is where the miracles are. When you think more of me that you do of yourself, miracles happen. Miracles happen when you get your focus off of what is holding you down and get your eyes onto me. 

Stay there and see the miracles rain down in your life. 

Timing...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father, I am late but I am here and can't wait to hear what you have to say tonight. 

You have been amazing as always all day. Thanks for divine timing all day. Everything happened just as it was supposed to just when it was supposed to. One of the many blessings of living life in your will God. 

LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

What God Said Tonight:

My timing really always is perfect. I know that sometimes it seems like I make you wait too long. I know that there are things that you are believing me for right now that you think have been delayed too long. But, I promise, I will always work it out for your good. I will always make sure that the exact perfect timing is in place. 

The timing of a thing is as important as the place and the action of a thing. If you do the right thing in the right place but at the wrong time, you will not get the result you want. If you hit a home run in a baseball field but it is two hours before the game starts, you will not get credit for that score. 

When you wait on me, I will make sure that every action, every thing, has the maximum impact, the maximum blessing for you and all of those around you. I love you enough to make sure that you get what you need, WHEN you need it.

Having fun with God...

My prayer:

Life with you is so FUN!!! All those years that we thought living life with you meant being sedate, quiet, and boring...we were missing out! God, I love your joy. I love that you want us to enjoy life. I love that you want to enjoy life with us.

Thank you for a fun night. Thank you for being a God who doesn't need us to be serious all of the time. Thank you for your continued favor raining down on my life. Can't wait to see what tomorrow with you brings!

What God Said Tonight:

Living this life with you. That is what I really want. I came to give you life and give you life more abundantly. I came to free you to live the life that you were made to live. I came to do it all with you and for you.

I love you and I love spending time with you. Sometimes that time is serious, sometimes it is worshipful, but sometimes I definitely want to have fun and enjoy you. You are my creation, my child, and my bride. I am celebrating every moment I get to spend with my children. My joy is your strength. 

My joy. That should be clue right there that I like to have fun. My reputation for being an angry and serious God is misrepresented. I am love. My joy is your strength. And there is nothing that I enjoy more than spending time with you and celebrating your victories in me. 

Love you now and forever.

God on our side...

My prayer:

Awesome God of peace. God I pray for your peace tonight. I pray that you fill us with your peace that passes all understanding. I bind confusion and doubt and I loose your peace and direction in our lives. It is your desire that we live in perfect peace. 

Thank you God for your perfect peace in us tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

You do not need to fear or worry. I am still in charge. I have you covered and protected. Fear is not from me. Confusion is not from me. 

All things that are not from me have no place in your life. You have my peace, my strength and my eternal promise that I will never leave you. I will never turn my back on you. 

My favor, my power, my strength, my Spirit is on your side forever. Who or what could ever beat that? 

Love you my precious child.

God's help...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You have all the answers and you work everything out, every time! I don't know why it still surprises me. It shouldn't. 

I spent most of last night thinking about a problem, trying to work out a solution and got no where with it. I go to work today and before I can even try to work it out, you took care of it. Problem solved!

Thank you God! Thank you for taking care of me and the challenges in my life before I can even pray about them. The way you love me, the way you love us is amazing! LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

I take care of you because I love you. Pretty simple really. 

I love when you pray. I love when you bring me your needs, your wants. It gives us a chance to talk and it gives you a chance to know that it was me who stepped in and took care of it. 

However, when we are close, when you are talking with me throughout the day and we are together throughout the day, you don't always have to ask for help. I see what you need and I have the answers so I will definitely take care of you. 

If a mother saw her toddler drop their toy as they ran across the playground, wouldn't she pick it up? How much better will I, your heavenly Father, take care of your needs? I will give you the desires of your heart and I will provide for your every need. 

You can count on me and I will take care of you. I love you forever, my child.

God's talking...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I have a million thoughts running through my head tonight but none are really worth talking about. I think I would rather listen than talk. You always have something wonderful to say and that sounds like a better idea than trying to get my thoughts to line up into anything sensible. LOVE YOU!!!

What God Said Tonight:

I am happy to talk because you listen. 

Can you imagine for a minute what it would feel like if you were talking to people around you all of the time but none of them could hear you? Imagine the frustration. Imagine the hurt. 

I work pretty hard to make it plain. I even wrote a book. But too much of the time, my people, my children don't hear my voice. I know it takes some effort. It takes some practice. That is why I ask you to read my Word and why I ask you to assemble with other Christians often. These are things that help you to hear me. 

When life is so loud that it drowns out my voice, something needs to change. I am talking, all of the time, I am talking. I want to help you  I want to give you direction. I want to give you peace. I want to provide for your every need. Listen, hear, and love.

Love and relationships...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I have a question tonight that I am really struggling with. You made us to be in relationship. Relationship with you and with each other. I have been taught this and I believe it. You are a relationship (3 in 1). 

So, if that is how we are designed, why are we so bad at it? Why to we hurt each other over and over? Why to we lie to each other? Why can't we learn to stay married to each other? Why do we kill each other? 

And, why do we have to learn how to be in a relationship with you? Why is it a revelation for most of us that you want to be in a relationship with us? Shouldn't we come out of the womb ready to begin our relationship with you?

It really seems like we should be better at it.

But, it is what it is as they say. God I pray for your help to love people better. I pray for your help to not hurt others. I pray for you love and peace to overwhelm us and help us to love each other better.

What God Said Tonight:

I think you know the answer before I say it. Sin got in the way. Sin corrupted your nature and one of the greatest things damaged was your capacity to give and receive love. 

You saw it in Cain and Abel. Even back then, with sin in their lives, he chose death over life. He chose to kill instead of to love. The knowledge of good and evil creates a choice between good and evil and, with your enemy running rampant around the earth, many people for many years have made choices that have significantly hurt your ability to love and have right relationships. 

The good news is that it does not have to stay that way. You can rediscover your love nature. You can heal the wounds from sin. You can make choice to love and not to kill. People are doing it every day. 

I will pour out my love on you until it is overflowing out of you. Let that be your guide I love you now and forever, remember...

Listen to God...

My prayer:

Magnificent God. Your presence, your joy was all around me today! It was WONDERFUL! I found myself laughing for no reason other than I felt GOOD! Your joy is my strength, for sure!

I realized something tonight that I honestly did not know. I learned that how you and I talk to each other is not typical. Many people don't know you like this. They could and if they knew how wonderful it is, they would; however, currently, they don't.

God, that makes my heart hurt. I can't imagine not being able to talk to you and expect you to talk back. I can't imagine a relationship with you where having you answer a prayer was the exception and not the rule.

God, my request tonight is that you help people to hear you. I pray that you help people to expect to hear your voice when they pray. I pray that you help people to understand how to wait on you, with expectation and faith. I pray that you help people to know that you want to talk to them and that you are talking to them. Help us to hear you better God. 

Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

I desire your undivided attention. I nearly covet your attention. 

I love you so much and I have so much to tell you. You , my children, have so much that you need to know as we go into this next season. I will shout, I will jump, I will do all that I can to get your attention but in the end, it is your choice. You choose whether to listen to the world or to listen to me. You choose whether you will take time to be quiet with me. You choose whether you will believe that our relationship is real and alive or whether it is only a fantasy. 

I love you more than you will ever know. I have so much to say to you. I will help you, I will guide you, I will give you wisdom and knowledge. Listen for it.

The next day...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Tired, happy and at peace tonight. Grateful to have time with you. 

Thank you for hearing the prayers sent up this week for all of the needs and healing. Thank you for the numerous praise reports. Thank you for being our God, caring for our every need, and loving us! 

You are THE BEST!!!

What God Said Tonight:

The light is beginning to show on the horizon. It is peaking over the edge and beginning to illuminate some of the details of your next season, your next day. 

You are going to love this next season so much! There will be plenty of challenges but such great joy! You are going to see the miraculours surrounding you in everything that you do. You are going to see things that you could not have imagined as possible. 

I have prepared you for this time. Keep an eye on the horizon. Keep on eye on the details as they become visible. Not because I neccesarily need you to do anything with it right now but just because I want you to see the wonders that are coming. 

I love you and I can't wait to walk with you in this next season.
