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.

Intimacy with God...

My prayer:

Craving intimacy tonight God. Craving that closeness that I can only get from you. That place where I can't tell the difference between my own thoughts and your thoughts. That place where nothing matters but you and your next word. 

God I crave that time with you. I crave those moments when the world disappears and it is just you and me. 

Sweet Father. Let's close out the world tonight and spend time together. Let's close out all the voices, the demands, the troubles, just for a few minutes. I love you God so much. 

What God Said Tonight:

I am here. I am always here for you. I wait for you to take the time. I wait for you to call my name. I wait for you. 

Come, sit with me. Let's talk, sing, or just sit together. I love every minute we have together. I want it more than even you do. 

Let's stay here for awhile, together, quiet and fully aware of the oneness of Spirit. I love you daughter.

No fear...

My prayer:

What stops us from going after what we want? Fear? An idea that we don't deserve it? Worry that us getting it will hurt someone else? I bet it is usually wrapped up in fear of some kind. I don't think of myself as a fearful person but I know, when I really look at things, fear keeps me from doing so mamy things that I really do want to do. 

God, I pray for help with fear tonight. I pray that you go to the source of those fears and heal me. I pray that you replace that fear with your confidence and strength. I pray that the only time that fear is allowed in my life is if it is truly guarding me against harm. Actual harm, not imagined harm and not someone else's idea of harm. And, that the fear leaves as soon as that harm is removed.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

There is potential for harm everywhere. The world you live in is rampant with it. The key to living in harms way without fear is your confidence in me. Your confidence in me and my love for you can overcome all fear.  

Through the assurance that love, my love will never allow you to come to harm. I will always rescue you when things try to come against you. That is the key to living without fear. 

It is not finding a safe place away from harm. There really is no place like that on earth right now. The only truly safe place is in my arms. In my arms, you can have the confidence to do whatever your heart and my Spirit guide you to do. 

I am with you always. Walk in the confidence of my love.

The calm before the storm...

My prayer:

I have no idea what to talk to you about tonight God. Everything was good today. Nothing super amazing but nothing super horrible. Everything got done that needed to get done. No complaints but nothing to write home about either. 

As I think about it, I should be and am grateful for a non-eventful day. With life so crazy normally, a quiet, decent day is definitely a gift. Thank you for a peaceful, vanilla kind of day!

What God Said Tonight:

One two three, get ready. The calm before the storm is a real thing. 

I give you times of rest to fill up your tanks for times of challenge.

In a box...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am feeling a bit directionless tonight. What are we doing? What is the purpose? What is next? What is the goal? 

I am all for living in the moment but I need a bit more of the big picture and overall purpose of this season. Or, maybe I don't "need" it but I would really appreciate it. 

I know that you always have a bigger plan and purpose for the situations in our lives. And I trust that. It would just really help me to be on board and help me to make decisions if I understood a bit more about where we are headed.

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes I can only give you one step at a time. Sometimes it is because where we are going is a bit overwhelming. Sometimes it is to help you build your trust. Sometimes it is so you can more fully follow my will and not fall into the temptation to control the situation yourself. Sometimes it is all of those things. 

I know you feel like you are in a box right now but the great thing about a box is that any side of it can be opened. There are six ways out of any box. Remove any side, open up any side and you can walk right out, up, down. I have a plan and it is not to leave you in the box. 

Follow my lead, but wait for the next step.

RIght action...

My prayer:
THANK YOU!!!!THANK YOU!!!!THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU JESUS for a wonderful day. Everything went so much better than I could have even hoped. 

Thank you for fixing broken things. Thank you for making the transition back to work so easy. Thank you for amazing people in my life. 

You bless me in so many ways God and I am very grateful! I honestly can't imagine life without you and I don't want to. 

What God Said Tonight:

Where so many people get tripped up is they are focused on doing good, doing the right things instead of focused on what I am doing or want to do in any given situations. This maybe hard to understand but it is more important that you be in my will than for you to do what you think is right just for the sake of doing it. 

Why it gets so confusing is often, what you think is "right" or "good" in a situation is exactly my will. In those times acting on that impulse for the right thing is exactly what you should do. But sometimes, I have a purpose. Sometimes I need you delay doing the "right" thing. Sometimes the thing you think is right will actually damage the situation and the people involved. 

Think back to the story of Lazarus a minute. Coming exactly when they called me, to save my dear friend from death, seemed like the "right" thing to do. But what they did not see and could not see at the time, was I had a bigger purpose in mind. I would still save my friend. I would still restore and heal him, but I needed him to die first to show the glory of the Father. 

So, my caution to you is, don't be so quick to act all of the time. Seek my voice and guidance so that your actions can be right and on time and in my will and therefore be the most effective for our Kingdom.

Ears and eyes open...

My prayer:

Thank you for an amazing day God. Thank you for letting me be a part of you providing tremendous healing in so many people today. I truly count it as a privilege that I get to pray with people and see you change their lives. 

Tomorrow it is back to regular life and work. I think I am ready. This has been such great break and a great rest. I feel recharged and ready to get back into the race...I think.

I pray and ask for your help God to hang onto the peace that you have provided in me even in the midst of great stress. I pray for your wisdom and guidance to make good choices. I pray for you help in everything.

 What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes, the best thing for you to do is to keep your ears open and your eyes shut. Your ears open to hear my voice and your eyes shut to block out the circumstances that seem overwhelming. Sometimes, that is the way to get through; but, you miss a lot when you do it that way. 

I am hoping that in this season, you will have the courage and faith to keep your ears open AND your eyes open so you can see fully what I can and will do for you. That is when you will see the greatest growth.

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Maturing process...

My prayer:

Dear God. Show me the things I don't know about where I am at right now. Show me the things I am blind to in the situations and struggles that I am in. 

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I have given you eyes to see but I have not yet given you license to speak about what you see. I have a process that has begun that needs time to mature in you before it comes from you. 

I am not in a hurry for this. We will take our time and make sure everything is accomplished in right order. 

I have great purpose in this. Wait on me and I will show you all of it,

Friday, July 24, 2015

Knowledge and wisdom...

My prayer:

There are so many things in this world that I don't understand. Then there are all of the things I think I understand, just to find out later that I was wrong. I have heard it said before and I guess it is true, the older I get, the less I know. 

When I was younger, I was so confident that I was right about everything. I wasn't, but I was confident that I was. Life sure was a lot easier when I thought I had it all figured out.

Dearest Father. I understand that my knowledge is not good enough to get through life. I pray and ask for your knowledge and wisdom to guide my life.

What God Said Tonight:

Wisdom and age do not always come together. 

Who is more wise? The person who thinks they know it all but they are wrong or the person who thinks they know nothing but they are wrong? 

I am your Father and your guide. I will help you with each step of your life. Look to me, seek me and I will help, every time. It is in your lack of knowledge that I am shown to be wise.

Choices...

My prayer:

Lots of random thoughts running through my mind tonight God. Most of them are related to choices. We make so many choices everyday, some without even thinking about them. Some that make things better and some that make things worse. Some that don't seem to have an effect at all, but often later turn out to have been important. 

It is so easy to look at someone else's life and see the choices they "should" make. I wish I had such great clarity and insight when looking at my own life and choices. It is always more complicated from the inside.

I pray and ask for your wisdom in our lives God. Help me to make the best choices for myself and help me to have grace and understanding for the choices that others make, especially when I don't agree with them.

What God Said Tonight:

Not every choice is earth shatteringly important. I can work within most of your choices. There are the big ones that need to be in place like choosing me for your life. But, for so many others, seek me, I will guide you.  Then, take a breath knowing that I am big enough and powerful enough to work it all out any way. 

Stick with me and you will see me work it for your good.

God's home...

My prayer:

Hi God! How was your day? Anything amazing happen that you want to talk about? Anything at all you want to talk about? I am all ears and ready to listen. LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

Some people only see me behind stain glassed windows. They only see me inside of a church building or a synagog. 

My dwelling place is in your heart. I am not confined to a building and I am not confined to a location. 

I am holy. I am in you. You are redeemed by me. You are holy. 

I have chosen my dwelling place, I have chosen my home and it is in the hearts of those who love me. It is a pretty great place to live.

TImes of rest...

My prayer:

Thank you God for such a wonderful vacation. It was so beautiful and has left me wonderfully relaxed. What a great privilege that you provide me the time and the opportunity to disconnect from the craziness of everyday life and just relax in the beauty that you have created. Thank you God. I do not take it for granted. 

What God Said Tonight:

I have yet to see the person who does not need times of rest. I created you to have times of work and times of rest. This time together was beautiful and provided that rest for you. 

It also provided reminders and wisdom for you to take back into your daily life. There is something about that place of rest that allows you to hear me better. Without the constant rush of daily life, your ears are less clouded with noise and you can hear me. 

Remember what we talked about and don't lose that wisdom.

Rocks of pain...

My prayer:

Awesome and powerful God. I pray tonight for a couple of specific situations where people are being treated poorly and ask that you turn those situations around. I pray God that you heal the hurts that are causing people to hurt more people. I pray God for core healing in their lives that this thing that is tormenting them and everyone around them is healed and can become a testimony to help others rather than a weapon to harm others. God, I ask that you make them so whole that their only desire is to love. In Jesus name.

What God Said Tonight:

I am taking the rocks of pain and gathering them together to form a sculpture of beauty and love. A hurtful situation can either destroy someone or build them up. Like a rock, it can be thrown to cause damage of it can be used to build. 

I will take the hurts that have been used to cause more pain and I will repurpose them to build a healing story. 

I hear your prayer my daughter and I am your God.

Selected people...

My prayer:

Thank you God for your miraculous healing yesterday and last night! Your healing power never ceases to leave me in awe. I am so grateful for your power in my life.

Thank you for choosing me and for continuing to show me how amazing you are. I LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

You are on a path to greatness and on the way you will witness great thigns. I have come to show the world what life can be like with me. I have come to show them that their hope is in me. I have come, through you. I have come through your brothers and sisters. 

As my emissaries, you will be given great power and you will be given great favor. But, as you know, as my emissaries you will face great opposition at times. You will see great violence. 

I have selected people around the world to stand up in this time. To love when it doesn't make sense to love. To heal when no one else can heal.To be with me, by my side, showing the world that my relationship with them matters, and is good, and does not require a sacrifice of who you are, only a sacrifice of what you want. 

I love you.

Big picture and you...

My prayer:

Today was so much better God. Thank you for the reminder last night to let you help. You are so GOOD at helping! Why do I forget that? Why do I get so busy doing stuff that somehow I start to believe I can do it all? I would really like to stop that, forever. 

Thank you for your guidance, help, wisdom and blessings today God.

What God Said Tonight:

The past, the present, the future, they are all one to me. I have seen the end. I saw it way back at the beginning. I don't live life in the same way you do. 

I see and have the big picture in my sight at all times. I, all at the same time, can see your very breath as it travels in and out of your lungs. I care about the big picture. There are some things we need to do and to change. There are some things that need to happen to get this world and you back to the state I intended for you to live in with me. 

But, I also never forget you. I never forget how much I love you. I never forget how you have plans and dreams for tomorrow and that you will need help walking through them. 

I love you so much. I never forget that love. It is present with me at all times just as I am present with you. I am yours and you are mine forever. I have loved the world and I have loved you in the world. I will never stop.

Let God help...


My prayer:

Not sure how many more things could go wrong today God. It really seemed like I could not catch a break. I am sure that I am exaggerating and once I get a little space and distance I will be able to see it all in perspective. But, right now, all I want to do is yell and stamp my feet and tell everything to straighten up or at least leave me alone for two seconds. Just two seconds with nothing going wrong, nothing that needs to be fixed, solved or taken care of. That would be great.

What God Said Tonight:

Sounds like you are taking on a whole lot. Sounds like you are shouldering the responsibility for everyone's problems. Sounds like you are trying to solve all the problems, all on your own. 

Why are you doing that daughter? I am here. I am ready. I am waiting. Turn it over to me and let me help. Turn it over to me and let me find the answers. Turn it over to me and let me guide you through the mine fields, leading you to the other side of the problems. 

I love you, I am here, let me help.

Light in darkness...

My prayer:

Today really lasted a long time God. I am ready to say goodbye to it and hope for a bit of a better tomorrow. 

God, I pray and ask for your help in finding the good in tomorrow. In finding the opportunities to be a blessing. I ask that you help me see and find the joy in tomorrow.

What God Said Tonight:

You are feeling in the dark tonight but look and you will see that I have given you sight even in the dark. I have given you light to see, no matter what your environment. 

I am the light of the world and I will give you the ability to see the truth in the midst of lies every time. 

Focus on me, listen to my voice, follow my light and see the truth. 

I love you and I will not leave you to stumble in the dark.

Sunday, July 12, 2015

Hang on...

My prayer:

I am feeling so blessed God! What a great weekend. Thank you for all of the amazing people you have put in my life and thank you for the fresh appreciation of your blessings in my life! I can't wait to see what is next...

What God Said Tonight:

You know I often use the analogy of a river when I talk about my will in your life. Right now, it is more like a water spout. I am pulling you up through the water and waiting for you at the surface is someone that will help guide you to the next path. I have them waiting for you and they will not leave. Just hang on while I pull you up. 

Your time is nearly here. Just hang on and don't let go.

Walls disintegrating....

My prayer:

Feeling so wonderfully loved God. I am not sure how to handle it. Sometimes in life I feel very alone. Sometimes it feels like you and me in our own little world. Then a day like today comes along and I realize how many amazing people care about me and took the time to tell me. I will treasure this day for a very long time. 

What if we could learn to make the people in our lives feel this kind of love every day? Wouldn't that be amazing! 

God help me to do a better job of letting the people in my life know how much they mean to me and how much I love them. Help me to make them feel as special as they made me feel today.

What God Said Tonight:

I have watched you over the years grow and change. I have seen you let go of great hurt and I have seen you embrace great blessings. I have seen you fight back and I have seen you turn the other cheek. I have seen you love and I have seen you resist love. 

I see the walls around your heart. They no longer serve their original function of protection. Now, they just get in the way of what I have for you. They are already crumbling but I want you to get ready because I am about to knock them down completely. 

It is time for you heart to see the light of day. It is time for the wall to disintegrate. It may feel a little odd at first but I will be with you and I will keep you safe. Trust me and let yourself love and be loved as I intended for you. 

I love you more than my life. You are mine and I am yours forever.

Ripples...

My prayer:

Just when I think I have life figured out, at least a little, you always throw me a curve God. Thank you for always coming up with something new for me God. Life with you is truly never boring! Love you Daddy.

What God Said Tonight:

You have yet to understand and see the impact of me in your life. You have yet to see the impact of me in you and you in this world. I will one day show you the full impact, the full picture. For now, I will show you snapshots but know that they are the tip of the iceberg. 

What you don't yet see is that as my daughter, I use every word, every action, every thought of yours to help further my Kingdom and my people. You don't see it but I can tell you the ripples of you, the ripples of me living in you, move out from you and affect everyone they touch.  

That is why I walk so much abut relationships. I made you to be in relationship. I made you to be close to people so my presence and my power can move through you.

God's everlasting and ever present love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am not sure what to talk about tonight. I think I am just content. It happens so seldom, it is hard for me to recognize. But tonight, no drama, no desperate need, no overwhelming joy, just a quiet sigh and a general feeling that things are OK. 

Thanks for this God. It is nice. I love you and want to hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

A quiet rain, a warm home and time alone with you. That sounds perfect. 

I am with you now and always. I am with you in the high drama and desperate need. I am with you in times of joy and I am with you in these still, quiet moments of contentment. 

I am the God of all things. 

I am your friend and constant companion. I don't turn away when things are hard and I don't turn away when things are quiet. You cannot scare me off and you cannot make me lose interest in you. I love you, now and forever.  I always will. Please don't ever forget that.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

God's fuel...

What God Said Tonight:

Each of us, each of you have a specific purpose. You spend so much of your life seeking it out and yet you so seldom see the full extent of the purpose I have put in you. 

There is purpose in every aspect of your life. Yes, there is purpose in your successes. But there is also great purpose in your failures. There is great purpose in the times of rest. Their is great purpose in every thought, word and action that you have and make. 

I have a greater purpose and I have a master plan. Value your part in it and don't underestimate your impact, even when you think you have failed or when you have failed. 

All I need is fuel. Your life is my fuel to start the Holy Spirit fire that will ignite the earth. 

Love you.

Oppression...

My prayer:

My spirit is at peace tonight God. My mind, not so much. But, my spirit is at peace. 

Thank you for all that you are doing in me and in my life right now. I can't say it is comfortable but I can already see it is worth it. Thank you for new challenges. Thank you for new opportunities. Thank you for guiding me down another path. 

Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I am bringing to your life a freshness and a freedom. The opportunities you are seeing are a result of an oppression that is lifted. You endured in the oppression. You sought me. You learned much. But now, it is time for freedom from the oppreesion, the weight is lifted. 

Live free and see what can be, now. Love you!

Monday, July 6, 2015

Transformation...

My prayer:

Make me a better person please God. I don't ask or expect to be perfect, but please make me a better person tomorrow than I was today and a better person the next day etc. When I do look back and see my mistakes, I want to do it with the knowledge that I will be better tomorrow. 

I want to be a better blessing to the people around me. I want to be a more ready and faithful servant to your will. I want to think more about other people than I do about myself. I want to be kind, generous, caring, and full of grace. 

I want to be like you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I am in you and I am growing my presence in you. You look more like me every day. You resemble my character more every day. But remember we have an eternity together. An eternity for you to learn and to grow. 

Your life is more than a sum of rights and wrongs, goods and bads. Your life is an experience that propels you into the future that I have for you. Every experience, every last one, is used for your good and your future. Every single one is used for the good of the people in your life. When you dedicated your life to me, you gave me permission to use your life for my purpose. I can use it all. I don't throw way anything. I have got plans and purposes for all of it. 

Walk in the full assurance of my love for you, my presence in you and the transformation that it brings. Be open to change and you will change.

Enemy attack...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. 

Something is off tonight. I don't know what it is but I just feel, not right. I am usually pretty confident and comfortable in my own skin. But tonight, everything feels a little off. Even my coordination is off. My thoughts are focused on everything I have done wrong. 

I don't know what is up but I don't like it. Father, I ask for your help. 

What God Said Tonight:

I have you under my wing. I have you in the palm of my hand. I will take care of you and keep you safe now and forever. 

Your experience is not too unusual. You have an enemy and he is seeking who he can destroy tonight. He thinks if he throws you off, if he confuses you, if he throws every failure in your face, that he can get to you. 

He can't. I am your shield and your guard. Trust in me and resist his evil. You will be free and you will not be consumed. 

I love you daughter. I am yours and you are mine and this is temporary. 

Friday, July 3, 2015

The voice of God's love...

My prayer:

Wonderful day. Thank you God for healing my friend of the sciatic back pain. That was truly awesome! 

Your power, your favor, your healing and your love leave me in awe and without enough words to tell you how amazing you are. I am yours, now and forever God. 

What do we get to do tomorrow?

What God Said Tonight:

I have plans, for you, for tomorrow, but you can trust me with them.
I need you to focus on right now and right here. There are things in this moment that have great importance. There are people in this moment that need to hear your voice. There are people who need your prayers.  

You are the voice of my love on earth. Don't keep silent. Don't use that voice in judgement. Use it to spread my pure love throughout the world. 

Your most elaborate plan will not achieve more than one word of love to another person. I trust you to speak my love.

Thursday, July 2, 2015

Lines...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I feel like I started the day with an energy level of 0.1 on a scale of 1 to 10 and I am ending it at a -7. Can't believe I am still concious. Thank you for all of your help today. Would love to hear your voice before I collapse into bed.

What God Said Tonight:

There are lines you don't cross because they are dangerous for you. Keep an eye out for those lines. 

There are other lines that you create in your own mind as being dangerous. Those are the ones that can limit you to less than your full life. Those are the lines that can trap you in a life that is less than what I have for you. 

It is important to learn the difference. One set of lines is for your good and the other is for your detriment. I love you and if you ask me, I will teach you the difference.

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

My peace...

My prayer:

Sweet Father. I have so many thoughts racing through my head tonight I can't even seem to slow them down long enough to talk about them. It would probably be better to try to quiet my mind and listen to you. When my mind is going crazy, you are my peace. When my life is crazy you are my peace. 

What God Said Tonight:

A quiet mind is a rare find sometimes. 

I will be your peace and your refuge. When nothing else seems stable, I will be your rock. When nothing else makes sense, I will be your logic. When nothing else seems to matter, I will be your purpose. 

I love you sweet daughter. I will be your everything.
