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.

2016...

My prayer:

Tonight marks the end of 2015. I don't have a lot to say about 2015. You did some amazing healing in me. There were so many tragedies in the world. For every good memory I can think of I can also think of a terrifying memory from this year. It kind of makes me feel a bit numb and melancholy. So, instead of looking back, I think I want to focus on looking forward.

God, I pray and ask that 2016 be a year of renewed purpose and initiative. I pray God for hope and for blessings. I pray that you guide and direct us in all things. Take us into a new season God. Thank you Jesus!


What God Said Tonight:

2016 is a year of great promise and great turmoil. I can't stop the path that the world is on, it is necessary. But I can protect yo in it. I can provide for you in it. I can give you the purpose and direction you seek.

I am God of the universe and I will make all things turn for your good. Do not doubt it.

Look for me in every situation. look for the opportunity. Look for the blessing and the light. It will always be there. I will always be there.

I love you and we have great days ahead.

Learning...

My prayer:

I have had some odd coincidences lately. Sometimes, coincidences are you trying to show me something. Sometimes, they are just coincidences.


God I ask for wisdom and understanding. If you have a purpose in these coincidences, please help me to see that purpose. If you are trying to show me something or teach me something, I need a bit more help to see or learn it. 


Thank you Jesus. I remain your avid student.


What God Said Tonight:

I can use anything to teach you just as I can use anything to bless you. There are opportunities for learning and growth in every aspect of your life. I have placed those opportunities for you and it is your job, or quest if you will, to uncover them. 

 

I will guide you of course, but discovering and learning through the struggle to understand has great value. Those things that you have worked to understand can be much more powerful than the wisdom that I simply gift you with. 

 

Life is a lifelong series of learning and growth opportunities. Seek them out and find the wisdom of my kingdom within.

The future with God...

My prayer:

This was a day to celebrate God. Not any super big victories but a fair number of small victories. Thank you for the small victories.

I pray God that your sovereign and righteous will be accomplished in every area of my life. Not my will God, but yours. Above all, your will be done.

What God Said Tonight:

I walk in gardens that were meant for you. I wait for the day that we can walk them together.

I see a time when all of my children are with me, living in peace and in joy, fully whole and healed. I dream of that day with you.

I have seen the end and it is only the beginning. I love you now and forever.

Sunday, December 27, 2015

Grace...

My prayer:

Thank you for your grace and mercy that I don't deserve. Thank you for your healing at every level of my life. Thank you for your love.

What God Said Tonight:

Grace is what I spent an eternity putting together to save my people. Grace is not a mystery but it is hard to understand.

Grace goes against so much of what you think you know. Grace is all encompassing. I can't show you grace in one area of your life and refuse to show you grace in another area of your life. Grace is. It can't be compartmentalized or separated.

My grace is a natural outcome of my love. You are mine, now and forever.

God's promise...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am not sure what to do. I feel like I have been treading water, staying afloat but not going anywhere, for a long time now.

Am I still on your path? Is this where I am supposed to be and am  I doing what I am supposed to be doing? Or, did I miss something? Did I miss an opportunity? Is there something I need to deal with that is holding me back?

God, I would really love to hear your voice and your direction tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes, things on the surface look calm and serene, like a meadow in Spring, but underneath there is a mighty battle going on. Sometimes, what you see and experience is not reflective of the greater truth.

I have seen you through times of great struggle and I have seen you through times of great joy. I have never once left you, no matter where we were. I have not left you now.

I will guide you, always. It is my promise to you. It is my vow.

A place to dwell...

My prayer:

The night before we celebrate your birthday Jesus! Today was a wonderful relaxing day and I can't wait to celebrate with you and family tomorrow. I can never be grateful enough for what you have done for me Jesus. I can never have enough "Thank yous".

I am grateful for Mary and Joseph too. I am grateful for their courage and obedience. They believed the impossible and brought you into this earth in human form. A pregnant teenage girl, her fiance who knows the baby is not his and they stuck together and believed. That is amazing.

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

What God Said Tonight:

A day to rest. A day to give.  A day to remember.

I have many homes to dwell in now. Every believer's heart is my home. Not like in the beginning.

I am with you. I love you. I will never leave you.

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Property...

My prayer:

It's almost CHRISTMAS!!!! Two more days and we get to celebrate your birthday!!!

It is pretty amazing to think that the God of the universe, creator of everything, came here to earth to be born, just like us, live just like us and then die so that we can know you and have eternity with you. Not even Hollywood could make up that story. Sometimes, because I have known you and the story of your birth for my entire life, I forget how amazing it all really is.

Thank you for everything God. Can't wait to celebrate with you!

What God Said Tonight:

I have seen you child and you are a property owner. Not property in this  world but property in my Kingdom.

It is harder to see but it is permanent. Once you gain property, once you gain ground in my Kingdom, you can never lose it and no one can ever take it away from you.

You have earned your plot of land, not through your good works but through your relationship with me. Ground, land in my Kingdom can not be won through acts, it can only be given. I have given you much and there is more to come.

You are rich in heaven my child. You are mine.

Monday, December 21, 2015

Keep moving...

My prayer:

A day full of unresolved tension has left me feeling on edge and off balance tonight God.

I pray and ask for your peace, wisdom, and guidance to lead me through this season (which is hopefully a short one). Help me to learn all that I need to learn. Help me to see every opportunity.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Hang on to me. Hang on to the cross. Walk with the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other. Don't stop. Don't stay and live in this place but keep walking and I will guide you out.

I have not designed you to live in this season but I have designed you to walk through it. I have things to teach you in this. I have purpose in this.

Put one foot in front of the other. Don't stop moving. Keep your eyes open and see what I will do.

Sunday, December 20, 2015

Forgive...

My prayer:

God, I ask for your help to forgive those who have hurt me and, even harder, to forgive those who have hurt those that I have loved. I know that is what you want from me but I do not have what it takes to do it on my own. I pray for your help and healing to be able to let go and to forgive.

What God Said Tonight:

I have forgiven you. You already have in you what you need to forgive.

I gave it to you freely. I did not ask you to pay for it with your actions or with your words. I have given it to you through my own sacrifice.

Now, you can give it to others.

God's Kingdom...

My prayer:

I am pretty glad to be at the end of this week God and grateful for a day of rest with you tomorrow. I am worn out.

Most of my thoughts and questions tonight are related to wonderful people in my life who are facing weird challenges. There seem to be a lot of those. I pray God that your sovereign will be accomplished in each of the situations and that every one of them be turned for that person's good. God, you can use anything to bless us. Turn their stuggles into blessings. It is so cool when you do that!

What God Said Tonight:

I am building a great Kingdom. First was the foundation. It has taken many years to build a foundation that can house my presence. The foundation, your foundation is built and is strong.

Next step is the columns. They will be tall and strong and will hold many stories. The columns, for you, will also be ornate. They will be evidence that a child of God dwells here.

There are more steps after that but I don't want us to get to far ahead of ourselves...

Thursday, December 17, 2015

God's presence and love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I have renewed recognition of what a privilege it is to have you in my life and have you on my side.

While others are seeking a place of peace, I carry your peace with me. I bring it with me into every situation and every environment. I  bring you with me.

What a huge privilege! The God of all creation goes with me wherever I go! That is just crazy but it is true. So true that other people notice it. They don't always know what "it" is but they know something is different.

Thank you God for making me different with your presence!

What God Said Tonight:

Come close for a second. Let me wrap my arms around you. Let me kiss your forehead. Let me make sure you know how loved you are.

I have many great plans and many great things to do but none greater than letting my children know that I love them.

Seed of faith...

My prayer:

Thank you for protection today God. I could feel your protection throughout the day and let me walk through dangerous situations with no anxiety. That was pretty awesome.

I got to see some people spreading peace instead of violence today and it gave me hope. Thank you for showing me that. It was pretty awesome too.

Thank you for a pretty awesome day!

What God Said Tonight:

Walking out this life takes so much faith and hope, I know that it does. But faith and hope are odd things. The littlest amount, when watched over and protected can provide the greatest result.

You know what I have said about mustard seed faith, it is still true. If you have even the smallest of faith, the smallest of hope it will grow to cover your whole life.

Don't let go of your seed. Don't let go of the hope and faith you have. You will need every last bit of it for the days ahead. Hold on to it and I will make it grow.

Monday, December 14, 2015

Generosity...

My prayer:

What a great day God! I love giving. Seeing someone's eyes light up and tear up as the result of unexpected generosity, no matter how big or small, is one of my favorite things in the world.

Thank you for making me a blessing today. Thank you for blessing me so I can bless other people. Thank you for teaching me the joy of giving.

What God Said Tonight:

It is one of the things that I continue to love about this season, it gives people an excuse to be generous.

Generosity becomes it's own reward and gives back even more than what is given.

I know many people worry about the commercialism that seems to overrun Christmas but if you don't focus on the amount of the gift and stay focused on having a generous heart, that is when there is true joy for all.

Sunday, December 13, 2015

Look up...

My prayer:

God, my awesome God. I am uneasy tonight. The constant crazy violence of this world, the disappointments of life, they all just get to be too much some times.

I know I keep talking about this and I know that every time that I do, you reassure me that you are in charge and you will take care of me. I try to remember that. I try to remember that none of this is a surprise to you. But, living it out every day, seeing dreams crushed, seeing people destroying other people, and never knowing where the next bullet is coming from...I don't know how to live with all of that and still find peace all the time.

I try to shut it out but that only lasts for awhile. I try to remind myself of your power, your presence and your peace, but that only lasts for awhile.

Even though I have asked before and you have given it to me, I need to ask again for your help. Help me to know how to live in this crazy world without letting it make me crazy.

What God Said Tonight:

Secrets are being made public. More than ever, that which was hidden is being made known. Secrets are not usually pretty. They are usually dirty and grimy and there is a reason that people keep them secret. But, the time for secrets is over. The time for knowledge is here.

When Adam and Eve first ate from the tree of knowledge, it opened a door to this day when all will become public. All will be known.

It is a lot to handle and it is not pretty. But, in the end, after all is known, I will redeem my children. I will create  the new heaven and new earth. I will make a home for us that is bright, and beautiful and filled with joy and peace. I will build us a home where secrets do not live and where joy and kindness reign. I will build us a place where pain and sickness cannot stand.

I have promised you these things. Stay focused on our future together. When the secrets being revealed get to be too much, remember that we have a future together beyond the secrets and beyond he violence. We have a future together of love.

When it gets too hard to look around you, look up.

Choosing God's will...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Today was certainly not what I expected but it was pretty wonderful. I really love when you take over. It sure takes the pressure off.

Thank you for the divine appointments today God. Getting to minister to people with the greater understanding of your grace is pretty wonderful. Knowing I didn't have to convince anyone of anything, just love and let you do your thing, it was wonderful and again, really takes the pressure off.

Thanks for a pressure free day God! You are wonderful.

What God Said Tonight:

You prayed with a sincere heart that my will be done today. Every time you pray that prayer, and mean it, I guarantee that I will see my will accomplished.

I gave you free will so that you could choose me. I gave you free will so that when you had the choice, you could choose life. Choosing brings you closer to me. It strengthens our relationship every time you choose me.

Much like in a marriage, there is a level of contentment and satisfaction in each day that the other person stays in the marriage and does not leave. However, there is a great joy in each day where the other person says and means, "I choose you today."

That is powerful. That is love. That is what makes life worth living. When the one you love chooses you...that is the good stuff.

So, know that I choose you everyday. I choose you no matter what. When you choose me, it makes my heart swell. I love you sweet child.

Friday, December 11, 2015

God's love...

My prayer:

I have a bunch of random thoughts running through my head tonight God but I am not sure any are worth talking about let alone worth praying about.

Thank you for today. Thank you for being amazing.

I am really interested in anything you want to say. I bet it is A LOT more interesting than my random thoughts.

What God Said Tonight:

It is not just my voice that brings you what you seek and long for. It is my love.

My love completes you and strengthens you. My love makes  you whole. My love is what will never leave, for all eternity, it is yours.

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Why praying is important...

My prayer:

Thanks for hearing all of my prayers today God. I feel like I am spending more time than usual asking for your help lately. Sometimes for myself and sometimes for others, but it sure seems like I am needing your help and intervention a lot more than usual.

Thank you for always being there for me, for us. I hope I am not getting to be too needy or annoying.

Knowing you, you will probably say that you love me too much for me to be annoying, but, there are people I love with my whole heart who sometimes get annoying. As I think about it, when that happens, it doesn't make me love them any less though...ok, now I am rambling. Time to let you talk.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your Father so everything that is a concern to you is a concern to me.

I never get tired of your prayers. I never want you to stop asking. I already know the needs. Your asking, your praying is about you and me coming into agreement. It strengthens our relationship and you know how important that is to me.

So, whether you are praying for a need, praying for a desire or just taking time to talk to me, I am always here and ready to listen.

I am yours and you are mine forever sweet child.

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Be great...

My prayer:

I am wiped out but grateful for today. Thank you for divine appointments and amazing people. I can't wait to see how you work this all out.

What God Said Tonight:

I have you positioned for greatness. However, greatness may not look like what you expect it to.

My greatness, greatness in my Kingdom comes from supporting from behind, not from shining out front. Greatness in my Kingdom is clothed in humility, not shining with pride. My greatness, greatness in my Kingdom is about what it brings to others, not what it brings to you.

Be great, but be great in the way that fits in my Kingdom.

Monday, December 7, 2015

Trusting God...

My prayer:

Today was a very interesting mix of good, bad and ugly. Thank you for the good. Thank you for wisdom in the bad. Thank you for making the ugly into something new and beautiful.

You, awesome Lord, turn all things for my good. I always win because even if I initially lose, you turn it around for my benefit. That assurance, which I have seen in my life time and time again, gives me great confidence.

Thank you God!

What God Said Tonight:

I am omnipresent. I am everywhere at all times. I am in your future and your past. I am in your present, right by your side.

I see things as they already are but have not been yet seen. I see how things could be if different choices are made. I have great wisdom, that is true, but it does not take great wisdom to see what is before me and understand what led up to it. It dos not take great wisdom on my part but it takes great faith and trust on your part.

Trust me to see the things that you have not yet seen Trust me to know the outcome from the beginning. Step out in faith with me, when I lead you to and you will see such great things with me.

I am yours, now and forever.

Sunday, December 6, 2015

God's embrace...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You know the secrets of my heart. You know the words I don't speak and the thoughts I barely dare to think. And you love me anyway. You heal me anyway. You bless me anyway.

Thank you for being you and being so kind to me.

What God Said Tonight:

I have got you child. I have not let go .

I have you wrapped tight in my arms and no one will harm you. I have purpose for you. I have more for you than what you have seen.

Tonight, what I have for you is a safe place deep in my embrace. Rest with me.

Friday, December 4, 2015

Love...

My prayer:

LOVE YOU SO MUCH GOD! YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING! I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU! Sorry to shout but sometimes I need more that just words to tell you how great you are!

What God Said Tonight:

Sweet child of mine.

My love for you is eternal and everlasting. My love for you will never end and it will never wane. My love for you is a rock that you can build your life on.

There is one thing that you will NEVER not ever have to question and that is my love for you. Greater than all of the universe, my love for you will always stand.

Sweet child of mine.

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Foundation in God...

My prayer:

I am having a hard time turning off my thoughts tonight God. All I seem to be able to think about is work, running things over and over in my head.

Not that it is helping. It is not. It is frustrating.

Maybe if I focus on your voice, it will drown out the repetitive thoughts? I love you God.

What God Said Tonight:

Remember, I am the cornerstone of your life. I am the foundation of all that you are.

NO trial, struggle, challenge can change that. No storm is big enough to break up your foundation in me.

I am your high tower. I am your strength. Trust in my ability to hold you up in the middle of the raging winds. I will not let you down.

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

More peace...

My prayer:

My awesome God, Lord, Father. My prayer tonight is for peace.

So much stress, violence, and tension. I pray for your peace. I pray for it in the world, in the nation, in my state, in my city, in my friends, in my family and in me.

God I pray that you make me a place for your peace to reside and spread out from. Place your peace in me so that I can give it out to everyone around me. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Peace, true peace comes from complete trust and assurance that I am in charge and will take care of you.

I am not dependent on knowing the outcome of a situation before I bring you peace. My peace is a natural result of your trust in me. If you need more peace, find ways to trust me more.

If you can't trust me more, let's talk about that. I am the God of all creation who loves you more than anything and has promised to take  are of you for all eternity. I am completely worthy of your trust. I have made sure that everything that has ever happened in your life works out for your good. I will not stop. Any troubles and trials are evidence of the damage from this world and its sin core. but, even those things, I can, will and do work for your good.

I give you peace, but it is a by product of your trust. If you need more peace, find a way to trust me more.

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Impasse of wills...

My prayer:

I don't really have anything to talk about tonight but I am always ready to listen. What is on your mind tonight?

Love you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

We are at an impasse of wills. The will of one against another. The only true way to resolve that kind of conflict is to turn it over to me and both agree that my will rules.

That is not always easy to do but it is always effective when it is done.

Monday, November 30, 2015

God made...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am feeling a bit out of place lately. There are things about me that just don't fit in with the norm and I am not sure if that is ok or if that is a sign of my damage. Part of me likes my uniqueness but part of me worries that I am missing something and I will wake up one day and realize what a mess I really am.

I pray God that you heal anything that needs healing in me, physical, emotional, spiritual, whatever needs healing God, cover it with your healing power. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I made you perfect. Life made you damaged. I made you mine. I will make you whole.

You are who you are and I love you just like you are but, I won't leave you like you are. I will continue to heal and grow you. I will continue to root out the deep hurts and replace them with love. I will continue to peel back the layers of your defenses so that you can more fully experience life and the relationships I have brought you.

Most of all, I will love you always.

Sunday, November 29, 2015

Contradiction...

My prayer:

Awesome God. It seems like the theme of my life right now is contradiction. Everywhere I look, everything I am experiencing, even my own thoughts all seem to be contradicting each other. Not in a confused way but in a way where two things that seem contradictory are both true at the same time.

I am sure there is a greater message and understanding for me in this. I can feel that it is just out of my reach. I almost get it but not quite.

I ask for your help in understanding this. I think it is important. Thank you mighty God.

What God Said Tonight:

Contradiction is not always a bad thing. It is not always something that you want to avoid. Sometimes contradiction is what brings out the deeper truth of a situation. Sometimes contradiction is what opens your eyes to a new level of wisdom.

I have said that I would prefer you to be hot or cold rather than lukewarm. Part of the reason for that is you can tell the difference between hot and cold. The one helps define the other. Lukewarm is not either and not defined within itself. It is nothing.

Revel in the contradiction and use each side to help define the other. You will find greater truth in the struggle.

Friday, November 27, 2015

God's building project...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You know that I don't normally like to come to you with a big list of requests but tonight, I kind of have a big list of requests.

We have had really cold weather for several days now and there are too many people here without homes. God, I pray for your provision for them. Lead them somewhere safe and warm.

Today, more people near me were shot in violence. Several died and more were injured. I pray and send your word of healing to those who were hurt. I pray for the family and friends of all of the victims that you comfort them and give them strength. I pray for the man who did the shooting that you heal him at the core of whatever hurt, dysfunction, and/or curse that led him to this act today. I pray for core healing for all who were traumatized.

God, I pray also for courage for myself. I ask that you give me the courage to live a life that has greater impact than the one that I am living now. Help me to see and take every opportunity to be a blessing. Give me the wisdom to make the right and best choices.

I could keep going but I think that is enough for now. Thank you God for listening. Thank you for always being there and always helping. You are amazing and I am beyond blessed to have you in my life.


What God Said Tonight:

You know how sometimes at the beginning of a hike, you look at the mountain ridge and think there is no way that you can make it all the way up there. But then, you start taking one step after another and before you know it, you are on the top of the ridge, looking to the next ridge.

Life, your life, is a lot like that. Each challenge, each struggle, each tragedy seems greater than what you can bear or get through but each time, taking one step after another with me, I will bring you through. And, when we are on top of that thing, your focus will not be looking down at where you came from. Your focus will be the next ridge, the next challenge, the next accomplishment.

Your life with me is a constant building project that never is done but is always higher and more beautiful today than it was yesterday. I will conquer every mountain with you my child. I love you.

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Gather round...

My prayer:

Today was not the Thanksgiving holiday I planned but it turned out pretty wonderful anyway. I have so much to be grateful for because of you God. We talked about a lot of them today. Above all, I am grateful that you are who you are and you are the center of my world.

What God Said Tonight:

It is a time and a season to gather round with those you love. Find your roots and cherish them.

As you do, remember that I loved you first and I love you best.

Gather round me and spend time in my presence. I promise you will never regret it. I can always welcome one more home.

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Needing God...

My prayer:

Amazing God. Thank you for all of your help again today.

Continuing from our conversation this morning, is it important to you that we, that I, need you? I know it is important to you that we love you but it also seems like it is important to you that we need you. The whole concept of "without faith it is impossible to please God" seems to imply that our faith in you to do what we can't is important. But, even as I type that I realize that I am adding the part of "to do what we can't". That is not part of what you said.

But logically, when we love someone we often need them as well, Not always, but those closest to us, we need them at least in some aspect. Is that why it is important to you? Is it just evidence of the depth of our love for you?

I only ask because it seems like often, things in life are a lot harder than they could be. There are things, hassles, tragedies that are hard and require that we lean on you which brings us closer to you, which is good. But, sometimes, I wonder why it has to be that way. Can't we get and be close without all the trauma and drama?

I am rambling at this point God but I really am interested. I think if I could understand this a little better, it would be easier for me to wait out your timing on things...maybe.

I love you!


What God Said Tonight:

Needing someone,needing me, is not weakness. It is inherent in how I made you that you will need others to help you to be all that you can be. Your need of me is normal and makes you stronger, not weaker, when you allow me to be your strength, your guardian and your Lord.

I love when you recognize your need of me. It makes it easier for me to help you. When you don't recognize that you need me, I have to work harder to convince you to let me in. I love you and your need of me.

The small stuff...

My prayer:

THANK YOU GOD! You make me succeed in the most difficult situations and I am VERY GRATEFUL!

Having you on my side is so amazing. I wish I could find a way to help people who don't know you truly understand the favor involved in being your child and choosing you. Not that everything is easy, but you always, always make sure I win in the end.

YOU ARE AWESOME!

What God Said Tonight:

You're waiting for an opening, an open door. You're waiting for that next big opportunity. I tell you, it is coming and when it does it will be bigger than you can imagine but in the meantime, right now, I am providing you with so many opportunities to work in my Kingdom and be a help to those around you.

The opportunities are not flashy. They aren't things that a lot of people see and know about. But, I see. I know. And to me, they are enormously important. They are opportunities to bless and help my kids. There is nothing more important than that.

So, while you wait for the big stuff, understand that I get the greatest joy from seeing you be obedient in the small stuff. I get the greatest joy when you bless people for no reason. I get the greatest joy seeing you succeed.

I love you.

God knows you...

My prayer:

I really don't know how to put my thoughts into words tonight God and if I tried, it would probably just sound like whining. So, instead, I think I will focus on you for a bit.

Thank you God for always knowing what is best. Thank you for always giving me hope for the future. Thank you for protecting me (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and for giving me the peace to know that you always will protect me. Thank you for counter acting the critical voice in my head with your words of love. Thank you, most of all for loving me even when I don't know why.

What God Said Tonight:

I hear the anger you don't express. I hear the fear you don't admit. I know the dark thoughts that camp out in your mind. I know the very worst of you.

I know you and you are mine. All mine. I take you, just as you are, lock stock and barrel into my Kingdom, into my arms. And, once you are in, I don't let go.

God's guidance...

My prayer:

I have a lot running through my mind tonight God. I am not sure where to start.

So many wonderful people going through so many struggles. My prayer God is, HELP. I pray for your help. We can't do this without you. We are out of strength, knowledge, understanding. We need you. I can't even say what we need you to do because I have no idea how any of these situations "should" work out so all I can do is say, please HELP.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

If you are going down a road that someone else has traveled and they have landed where you want to be, then, by all means talk to them. Find out what they learned. Learn from them. But if the person giving you advice has not arrived at a place you want to be, you may want to consider if that is the direction you want to go.

I will lead and guide you always. In that leading, understand that sometimes that means me leading you on a path that is not well traveled. Sometimes that means taking you on a path that you and the people you love do not understand.

I have not abandoned you. I am right here. I will see you to the end of this journey and beyond.

Set aside...

My prayer:

Sweet Father. It is good to meet you here again. I have missed this time with you the last couple of nights. It has made me think of some of the other things that we use to do together that we don't now. It is crazy how easy it is for me to let everyday life get in the way of spending quiet, quality time with the one who is most important in my life. It is easier when the weather is nice because we have our hikes and our trail runs. In the winter, we don't get that time together. I need to find a way to set aside that kind of extended time to hang out with you in the winter.

Anyway, all of that just to say, I can't wait to hear what you have to say tonight...

What God Said Tonight:

I have skimmed the cream off of the top and set it aside. I have gleaned the wheat and sorted out the tares. I have sifted my people to see who could stand.

Now, those I have set aside, will be called upon to spread my word in a new way. They will be called upon to stand up for me in the face of death. They will be called upon to see the end of this era and the beginning of the new era.

Those who are set aside will not have it easy but they will be celebrated for eternity for their faith and their courage in the face of great terror.

I have called you to a purpose. I have set you aside and prepared you. I will soon call upon ou to move out in the fray. But, don't be afraid. I am with you, I will see you succeed. I will go before you in every situation and prepare a way for you. I would not send you into a hopeless battle. I will only send you to victory.

Your love is not in danger. Your life, your eternal life, is not in danger. Your peace is not in danger. I am yours and you are mine and that will never, ever change.

Safe...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Every time I turn around right now, it seems like someone is getting shot. This world seems to be getting more and more dangerous.

I pray and ask God for your protection around me, my family, my friends, and all of your kids around the world. I pray that you surrounds us all with your angels of protection.

I pray for your peace to fill us. I come against fear, in the name of Jesus, and in His name I cast fear into the pit. Holy Spirit, come and fill us with your comfort.

Thank you Daddy for taking care of us!

What God Said Tonight:

I have prepared a place for you in this time. I have set aside an area in the Spiritual realm for my children in this time of great upheaval.

I have wrapped you in my arms, there is no safer place.

I did not bring you this far in life to allow you to be taken prematurely from this world. Your time and your mission are determined by me, not by a random act of violence.

Beneath the cover...

My prayer:

Thank you God for your dramatic answer to my prayer this morning. You take such wonderful care of me. Thank you! Being your kid sure has its privileges.

As always God, I can't wait to hear your voice tonight. Your guidance, wisdom and above all love is like air to me. I need you to live.

What God Said Tonight:

You have seen beyond the cover. You have looked beneath the surface. And while some have been afraid, you now see that there is only love and freedom under the cover.

That is my perspective on things.

Time to shine...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I come tonight with no agenda but to listen. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I have been picking flowers for our garden all day. I want to bring you new flowers. I want to bring you joy. I want each day to be your golden and gem award for being my child.

I have seen you struggle long enough. Now is the time for you to shine in my glory. Now is the time for the world to see the grace on you. Now is the time for the world to know my grace through you.

I have little more to share. I have shown you all although not all can be understood. I have a stake in your success. I will not see you fail.

Love is the cure...

My prayer:

God I pray for your peace and your help to show us how to love each other. We don't know how to treat each other with love and with grace and it is literally killing us.

Help us God, help me, to love people with the love that you have put in me. Help me to treat people with kindness and respect. Help me to have compassion for all people.

I love you God and I think things in this crazy world are likely not going to get better until we learn how to love each other better.

What God Said Tonight:

Love is not always pretty. Sometimes it can get quite messy. To love someone, you have to be wiling to lay down beside them. You have to be willing to walk in their shoes for a bit.

But call on me, every time, and I will fill you with the love you need. Call on me and I will teach you how to love the unloveable.

Violence is a disease that spreads quickly. But love, love is the cure that spreads even more quickly. I have the power of love planted in you.

Free will...

My prayer:

I am feeling a bit cynical tonight God. It has been coming on or awhile, off and on. The horror of what we do to each other in this world leaves my heart cold and hard sometimes.

God, I pray for your protection for your people. I pray for your comfort. I pray God that your will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

What God Said Tonight:

Free will is as much a curse as it is a blessing sometimes. The hard thing about free will is that everyone has to have it. If only some people have it, it is not truly free.

The problem with everyone having it is that everyone, I mean EVERYONE, has it. The decisions of one or two people can have devastating effects on the lives of so many.

I can't promise you that nothing bad will happen to you as a result of your or someone else's free will. You already know that is not true. I can promise you restoration. I can promise you healing. I can promise to guide you always. I will steer you around every problem that I can.

I love you daughter. Don't let the decisions of others harden your heart. Don't let them steal the joy that I have given you. I am yours and you are mine forever.

Nothing is impossible...

Fast Growing Indian Blogs who proved Nothing is Impossible

My prayer:

What a night God. I am inspired and tired in almost equal amounts. Thank you for the reminder that all things are possible with you. You bless me like crazy.


What God Said Tonight:

I am yours. That's it, but that's everything. Nothing is impossible.

Shifting...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I had one of those days where everything felt a bit off center. Something fundamental was not right today but I could not put my finger on it.

I pray God for your sovereign power in my life, that you put everything right and that you work everything or my good.

I pray also for my friend tonight God who is struggling. She doesn't know you yet. I ask God that you give her a personal experience of your love and power tonight. She needs you so badly. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I have put some things in place that will take some time to settle in and feel normal. I have shifted things in the spiritual realm and you are noticing the difference.

The difference is not bad, it is actually very much for your good. However, it might be a little uncomfortable for a little while.

I love you and I love your friend. I will come as  close to her as she will allow tonight.

Burdens...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I could really use some help. I feel a load of burdens and concerns weighing me down, bending my back. I would like to hand them over to you tonight.

You are strong enough and smart enough to take them on and find the answers. I am out of ideas and out of strength. I hand them over to you. Thanks God.

What God Said Tonight:

I am here to bear your burdens. I am here to take your worry and fear. I never intended for you to feel these things. From the beginning I only wanted to help you and I have never stopped. 

Helping my kids is one of my favorite things to do. You have given them to me, now I can really start to work things for your good.

You relax for a bit. Rest up because as these get resolved, we have new levels of joy, celebration and new challenges.

I love you.

The mysteries of God...

My prayer:

Thanks for your favor today God. Life is a whole lot easier when I follow your lead. The challenges were still there but I just followed your peace and everything worked out.

That is the crazy wonderful thing about you (one of the crazy wonderful things about you). You always work things out. Little things, big things, you always work it out.

Thank you for being the solution, every time.

What God Said Tonight:

Seek and you shall find. There, in front of you are all the mysteries of the world. Seek me and you will find the answers.

I know you love having the answer; but even more, you love discovering the answer. Seek and you will find my child.

There is no knowledge that I will withhold from you. I might have to delay the answers sometimes, that is a different conversation, but I will always tell you the truth. I will always give you the answer.

The "mysteries of God" are mysteries only to those who don't know me. There is nothing unknown that you will not know in the right time.

I love you sweet daughter.

God of multiplication...

My prayer:

My thoughts are a bit scattered tonight God but they all center around love and friendship. True friendship and love is so profoundly valuable. It really means more than anything else, except for my relationship with you, which is really the example of ultimate love and friendship.

God, thank you for true love and friendship in my life. Please make me a better friend to the people you have put in my life. Please continue to teach me how to truly love and be a true friend.

What God Said Tonight:

I have the power of multiplication but it always starts with something. I can multiply anything you do. I can multiply anything about you. I need you to give me something to start with. It is like the fishes and the loaves story. I multiplied the food to feed thousands, but I needed something to start from.

It is not that I can't create it from scratch. I am the God of all creation. I can and have created things from scratch. But, when I do, you have less appreciation for them. My children appreciate what they have more if they gave up something to get it.

The idea of sacrifice is real but it is not exactly like you think it is. Your sacrifice is brief and transient. You give me what you have, what you want multiplied, and I will multiply it. I won't take it and run. I will bring it back to you multiplied.

Never be concerned for loss in your life. I am the God of restoration. Never be concerned about what you give up to me, I will multiply it back. I am yours and you are mine forever.

See the good aorund you...

My prayer:

I love you God. Thank you for today. I feel a little spoiled. You are an awesome daddy! I thank you and trust you to guide and direct my life.

What God Said Tonight:

Great things are happening here and around the world. Many great things. Many breakthroughs, many healings many celebrations.

It is easy to get caught up in the reports of evil. It is easy to think that good has left this world. But, that is not true.

This world is the home of my creation and it will live again in the state that I intended it to. And, you will live in it as I intended you too.

I have great dreams of walking in the garden with you. I will see you there someday. In the meantime, see the good around you. Don't get overwhelmed by evil but look to and focus on the good. I love you.

Barriers...

My prayer:

Too tired to talk but never to tired to listen to you God. What is on your heart tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

Do you feel the barrier? Do you feel the pressure as you brace yourself against the thing that is holding you back?

There is great tension in the experience of pressing up against barriers. One of two things happens...well, one of three things happens. You either give up, get crushed, or break through to the other side.

I am on your side. With me on your side, what do you think will happen? I will bring you to your breakthrough. I will not see you crushed. Just, don't give up, please.

Big plans...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I could use a little perspective tonight. I have been so focused on getting everything done that I have lost track of the big picture and purpose of life.

I ask for you help to see things from your viewpoint instead of my very limited viewpoint. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I have a big plan for your life. I have a greater purpose for you than you realize.

I am working out the steps, but, I am not in a rush. I have all eternity with you my sweet child. We can take our time in this marathon and get it right.

In the meantime, you keep doing what you are doing but do it with the realization that everything you do, everything that happens is part of what I am working out for your good. Even the smallest of things have purpose. It is my job to line them all up to benefit you.

I only ask from you your trust. I hope for your love. I appreciate your obedience.

When life doesn't make sense...

My prayer:

Wiped out. This day took everything I had, and then a little more. I pray God for restoration tonight. Thank you for your divine health and healing in me. Thank you for your strength when mine wears out. Thank you for rest.

What God Said Tonight:

I was working hard on your behalf today. As much as you saw going on, there was so much more behind the scenes.

Don't ever forget that what you see is the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more reality that is outside of your sight. The spiritual battle that rages constantly is as real as the hair on your head. And its power reverberates into the natural world in unforeseen ways.

When life doesn't make sense, know that you don't have all the facts. I love you daughter and I am all yours.

Forgotten prayers...

My prayer:

Such amazing peace today God! Thank you!! It was not that things were peaceful. Things were crazy as ever today. But, all through the day I had your peace and it was wonderful.

I have told you lately how wonderful you are and how incredibly grateful I am for you? I can truly never tell you enough. I understand why the angels praise you all day, everyday for eternity. It is what you deserve. You are more wonderful than my words can say.

What God Said Tonight:

Your time has nearly come. There are things you have been waiting on that are so close.

That is part of the tension you have been feeling. You can sense that there is something right around the corner and you are right.

It is a matter of a little more time and then you will see. You will see what you have been waiting to see. You will have what you have wanted.

I have heard your prayers. Even the ones you prayed so long ago that you have forgotten them. I love you.

Courage...

My prayer:

God I ask for the deep down awareness that you will work everything out for my good. I pray for your peace. 

 

I am trying to trust you but I am experiencing fear. I am afraid of how things could turn out. I am afraid of this crazy and violent world we are living in. I am afraid of tomorrow. 

 

Experiencing fear is not something I normally have to deal with and when I do, I don't let anyone know about it. But, I need your help. I need your assurance. I need you tonight God.


What God Said Tonight:

Courage comes from moving forward in the face of fear. I am with you. I am always with you. Know that and walk anywhere with confidence.

Already in you...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am being faced with a lot of choices right now. I am remembering your advice from several nights ago about going with the choice that gives me peace, which is easier said than done. I also did not realize I would have a bunch of choices all at once. It is exciting and overwhelming all at once.

When it comes down to it God, my life is yours so whatever you want, that is what I want. Guide and direct me to the choices that are best for you.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

It is in you. The knowledge, the preparation, the choice, is already in you. Trust your instincts and follow your nose.

I am right here with you, now and forever.
