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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
