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.

God, my anchor...


My prayer: 

Tonight marks the end of 2016. Not my favorite year. I am ready to say good bye and hope for better in 2017. 

Normally, on New Year's Eve, I get all introspective and look back at the year for all that I learned and all of the celebrations. This year was so bizarre, I really just want to look ahead and not back. 

Thank you God that no matter the year, no matter the circumstances, you are always with me, loving me, helping me and healing me. I love you with all that I am.

What God Said Tonight:

I don't have the same significance of marking time as you do. 

I have seen great times and I have seen the most desperate of times. I am not overwhelmed by either but I am your anchor, your talisman, to hang onto. I am the grounding wire to keep you stable. 

I have much for you.

Time alone with God...


My prayer:

Today was pretty wonderful God. A reprieve from the cold, time with old friends, a great bike ride. Sometimes these days with a combination of a lot of little joys can add up to be really great. 

And now, alone here with you, I am anxious to hear your voice and know what is on your mind. Let me feel your presence, your glory and let me hear your voice God. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

I have time alone with you so we can know each other in a closer and more intimate way. 

Like any relationship, you can learn about the other in group settings. You see how they treat others. You see what their general personality is like. You learn about their likes, dislikes, their passions. But it is not until you spend time alone with them that you get to know how they feel about you. It is only in those quiet times alone that you get to truly experience their love for you. 

It is in the intimacy that you find a closeness that withstands the storm. I cherish our time alone.

Less worry, less fear...


My prayer:

Your help today was invaluable God. Thank you! I am so blessed to have you in my life. I cannot imagine the messes I would get into without your guidance. 

What God Said Tonight:

You have less to worry about than you think you do. You have less to fear than what you think you do. 

I have seen to so many things that you worry about. Your future is in my hands and I have taken care of you. I have ensured that you always come out on top. I have ensured that while you have experienced pain, it has not broken you. 

If you can find your way to trusting me more, your life will be filled with greater peace. I really do have you in the palm of my hands and I will not see your destroyed.

Do more...


My prayer:

Thank you for the revelation today God. I am not sure what to do with the information but I am grateful to have it. 

Thank you for the journey of healing and wholeness. I know I am more apt to complain about it than I am to remember to be grateful. Healing hurts sometimes. But, I know it is all worth it. I can already see so many positive effects of the healing you have done in me. Things that use to really bother me, I mean make me so angry I couldn't see straight, don't really effect me at all. Things that I use to be afraid of, have no hold over me anymore.

Thank you for healing. Thank you for progress. Thank you for purpose.

What God Said Tonight:

What is your favorite part of life and living? Whatever it is, do more of that.

Time...


My prayer:

What a fantastic Christmas break this has been God. Thank you for the celebration, the love, the joy, the peace, and the break from the craziness of life. Thank you for time with people I love. 

It is back to work tomorrow and with your help, I can carry this peace and joy into the everyday world. Help me to be a blessing to everyone around me. Help me to see circumstances through your eyes. Fill me with your Spirit and your peace. 

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Another year together to grow, to love and to get closer. 

Time does not have the same meaning to me as it does to you. I am the beginning and the end. I am in all places at all times at once. But, where time is the same for us is in our relationship. As we spend more time together, as you get to know me better and draw closer to me, the value of time is realized for both of us. 

See time as the measurement of our growing intimacy, not as a barrier standing in the way of the changes you want to see. 

I love you. You are mine. We are going to see great things together.

Christmas Eve...


My prayer:

We get to celebrate your birthday tomorrow Jesus! It is unthinkable to me what life would be like if you had not come to earth to save us. I cannot imagine it. 

Thank you for paying for my sins. Thank you for healing me. Thank you for making it possible for me to have a direct relationship with God. 

I celebrate you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

A life lived without my grace is a hard life that ends badly. A life with my grace may still be hard, but it ends well.

I love you and can't wait to celebrate with you. The decorations are up and the dinner is made. I love you.

Choose joy...


My prayer:

Tonight, I can focus on all of the amazing blessings in my life or I can focus on the things I am missing in my life. It seems like the choice would be very simple and yet I find myself seeing what I lack and not what I have. What is wrong with me God? 

What God Said Tonight:

You have your answer in your question. Make a different choice. I have given you free will. Use it. 

Choose to look at and see the multiple blessing in your life. It is within your power to make that choice. Make it. Then, anything more becomes an added blessing that you can enjoy and not a plug to a hole that you can't let go of. It is the difference of rejoicing in the gift and smothering the joy. 

I am yours, now and forever. Your joy is in that fact.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Love your way out...


My prayer:

Today had a lot of blessings and things to be grateful for. Thank you God. I don't really know if you have changed the circumstances or if you have changed me but I do know that life is a lot more tolerable today than it was a week ago. 

Thank you for always taking care of me and working things out. I am looking forward to what you have for tomorrow.

What God Said Tonight:

It is not a mystery. The answer is always right in front of you. When things aren't going the way you want them to, find a way to love and you will find a way out. Love is really always the answer. 

I created you for love. I created you to be loved and to love others. When you are reacting from a place other than love, that is when things get turned around and difficult. 

Find a way to love in every situation and it will make a way out. When you can't find a way to love on your own, you can always tap into my love. It never ends.

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Hear...


My prayer:

Your presence is thick tonight God. So present, so amazing, so wonderful. 

It comforts me and holds me. I fills me and cleanses me. It makes me whole. I makes me yours. 

I love you dear Father. I love your Spirit. I love your son. Jesus, the one who gave up everything for me. There are no words of thanks for that. I love you and I relish n your presence. 

In a world that is drowning, I swim to you God. You are mine. 

What God Said Tonight:

Hear me now. Hear my voice. My voice will guide you through and out of every situation this world can throw at you. 

Keep your ears trained on my voice. Do not grow complacent. Be diligent in your focus. I will call you by name and you will follow my voice. Don't take side trips, follow my voice. 

I am with you and I am for you. I will see you through. My love for you cannot be measured or explained. But it is. I am. And we are made one through my son and my Spirit.

Shine victorious...


My prayer:

Today was SO MUCH BETTER! Thank you Jesus! I am exhausted but I had to give you some glory. 

You made everything fall together today. I had my doubts, that woke me up at 3:00 AM and kept me up. But then you just showed up and changed the atmosphere making the impossible possible. Thank you! 

Today was such a relief compared to, well compared to the last month or maybe even year. I am so grateful for you!

What God Said Tonight:

Lay your head on my shoulder and rest in my love. When I tell you I will work all things for our good, I mean it. 

Now, relax and know that I am God. I am your Father. I love you more than anything and I will always see you shine victorious.

Assurance...


My prayer:

Amazing God. I have found some peace and balance this weekend. Tomorrow it is back to work. I will need your help. 

I pray God that your peace that passes all understanding, live and grow in me. God, let me be a pillar of peace for you. Let people feel your peace and your love when they come around me. Surround me God in your peace and your love. 

I need and ask for it for my sake and for theirs God.

What God Said Tonight:

I am not in a rush and I am not worried about the outcome. I already know how this all ends up. It is that assurance that gives me patience to wait out all that needs to occur. 

That same assurance is yours. 

Trust me. Trust that I will work everything for your good. Trust it because I have promised you and trust it based on what you have seen throughout your life. 

Your time for action is not yet here. Your time for peace is always here. 

Trust in me. I will see you through. 

Saturday, December 17, 2016

Say yes...


My prayer:

I feel like I am on the verge of digging out of this hole God but I also feel like I could slide back in really easily. 

I pray for your hope, your light and your love to shine bright in me. God, make me a joy and a blessing to people, not a burden. Help me to see life and the future through your eyes so I can see past the trouble and into the hope.

What God Said Tonight:

There is a time and a purpose for every season. I will not let you stay anywhere too long. In fact, it is the feeling of unease and unhappiness that will motivate you to move and change when the time is right. 

Don't worry about missing it. I will make it obvious for you. Just be ready to say yes when it comes. 

I love you and your tomorrow is better than you think.

Miraculous life...


My prayer:

I gained a little perspective today God. Thank you. You showed me I was out of balance. You reminded me how much better life is when I look for opportunities to bless other people instead of getting so tied up in my own troubles. 

Maybe that is my new thing. Making sure that everyday I go out of my way to bless at least one person. That sounds like a really good idea. Thank you! I will do it!

What God Said Tonight:

The miracle of life is that the more you give, the more you receive. The miracle of love is that the more you love others, the more you are loved. 

The miracle you need lies not in prayer but in your own power to give, to bless, to love. I have put in you all that you need to live the most miraculous life. 

It is not magic. It is miraculous. It is not logical. It is my gift to you.

Washed...


My prayer:

Amazing God. I feel like I need to be washed off after this week. My mind, my body, my spirit, need to be washed in your blood. 

Wipe away the negative thoughts, the offences, the massive doses of negativity God, Wash them away in your blood. God, wrap me in your arms and make the week fade away in the presence of your love. 

Help me God to let go and release all that has piled up. Thank you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

I am here. I am yours. You are clean in my blood, You are whole in my Spirit. 

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Unrest...


My prayer:

I am here at peace with you Lord. I am not expecting anything but your presence. I am not asking for more than your presence. Be present here with me. Let me hear you, feel you, see you Lord. To see your face God, that is something that I have not yet known. 

I want to know all of you God. Every aspect and every facet. I love you and I want all of you.

What God Said Tonight:

All of me may be more than you can handle. But, I will bring my grace and my glory over you. I will blanket you in my love. I will show you new ways of experiencing my love for you. 

The air sparkles with my love for you. The animals sing it and the earth dances with it. The unrest you see in the world is not always a sign of dire destruction. Sometimes it is the earth jumping with joy for the new season, the new earth to come. 

Growing pains are never fun but if you can focus on the reason for them and trust that the growth is worth it, that puts you in a really good place. 

Your struggles are not about what you think they are. I have you here for a purpose and you will see great growth in this, I love you.

Sit in the fire...


My prayer:

Let me hear your voice God.

What God Said Tonight:

You are locked in and trying so hard to get out. Why don't you take a page from Shadrach, Mishach and Abendego and sit in the fire with me. 

I will protect you. I will bring you out. Until then, sit with me and let the people see that you can sit in the fire, with me, and come out unscathed. That is a miracle and a message for the world. 

You are the message for a generation that is longing for eternity. I'm here to make sure we get all of my kids that we can before we go. I don't want to leave anyone behind. 

I am yours and you (all of you) are mine. Rest in the fire knowing I am God.

Monday, December 12, 2016

Hindsight...


My prayer:

I struggled today God, Not because of anything that happened. Not because of anyone. I don't really know where it came from but I was definitely just going through the motions. If people hadn't been counting on me, I am not sure I would have even gotten out of bed. 

I don't know where this came from but I don't like it.

I ask God that you take this heaviness, this lack of fire, this lack of joy. God, I ask that you replace it with your joy and your peace in me.

What God Said Tonight:

Life is smoke. It is here and it is real but it is brief and always changing. It is the result of the fire. I am the fire. From me comes life. The life does not last but is beautiful while it  is here. Life fades into heaven where it lives on forever. 

Your life of smoke has little consequence in the grander scheme of eternity. But it is beautiful in its own right and deserves to be cherished. Cherish this time. It won't last forever. One day you will loo back and regret not appreciating the beauty more. 

Look at your life with the wisdom of your future self and see the good, the joy, the purpose that only comes with hindsight.

I love you and I have many blessings for you. Keep your eyes open and your ears clear. I love you.

Living out the full season...


My prayer:

Mighty God, your presence, your love, your joy, your peace. You are Holy and Amazing and I am at my very best in your presence. God, I honor you. I praise you. I lift my words, my heart and my spirit to you. I am all yours. God, I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

I have yet to show you the deeper reason for this season. Thank you for your faith and trust. It will all be clear, in time. I have a purpose. 

But, you are likely tired of hearing that. You are likely looking for the end of the season, looking for the new season. You are likely ready to move on, regardless of the purpose. 

I understand that feeling. I knew it myself when I was there on earth. But this season is not over yet It is not fulfilled yet.  

I will sustain you. I will comfort you. I will make sure that every moment is for your good. But, I won't end it early. It needs to run its course, for you and for others. 

I love you.

Paying the price...


My prayer:

Thank you for victory in my friends and families lives tonight God. Your power, love and healing are amazing! 

Tonight, I do have one more thing to ask for. I ask God that you help me to see the lesson, the insight in everything. I have a tendency to get a little bored when someone is telling me about something you already told me about years ago. I try to hide it, but I am sure it makes them feel rotten. The insight is new and exciting to them. I have tried to get excited for them and for their experience. I have been a little more successful with that but still, I think it is probably obvious that I am a little bored with it. 

Then, tonight, I thought about last night and you showing me brand new things in a situation where I thought I knew it all. I bet, those kinds of new insights in the middle of things I already know are all around me if I can just see them. I ask God for you to show me the new thing, in the thing I already know. Show me new insight. Help me to see deeper understanding in everything.

You say ask for wisdom when we are lacking it. I am asking. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

You are paying the price of someone else's decision. Your own time and your own cost will come but not in your lifetime. 

Your generation is late to the game but making some ground. 

The disease of evil...


My prayer:

I am kind of amazed tonight God. Thank you for the new perspective. Here I was thinking I knew some things and knew some people and tonight showed me that all that I thought I knew, was wrong. Humbling, yes but also exciting! 

I am grateful that you can still surprise me God. 

What God Said Tonight:

Connecting. I made you to be in relationship. I am in relationship and I made you in my image. Your purpose is fulfilled in relationships. 

The only way to truly be in relationship is to be willing to see each person in a different (and often better) light than your first impression. Trust that every person is made in my image and there is inherent good in them. You just have to look for it sometimes. 

I did not create evil in man. The evil is a disease. Part of the disease leaves you blind to the brotherhood and sisterhood you have together. Don't let that overtake you anymore. Strive to see others through my eyes and let your love lead you.

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Timing...


My prayer:

Sometimes, my role as intermediate, peacemaker, communicator...whatever you want to call it is exhausting. But, just when I think it is all too much (whatever "it" is on any given day) you step in and show me that I am capable of more than I thought, I am stronger than I realized, that this thing which I thought was going to take me out, is no more than a bump in the road. 

Thank you God. 

Now, maybe we can have a little break? Maybe we can have a little bit of time where everything doesn't have to be SO hard? If that is possible, I would really appreciate it.

But, above all things God, your will be done. If there is a purpose that you have for this season, if there is a reason you need me in this right now, I will stay as long as you have me here. I will trust you to give me all I need to make it through.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

It's not time to rest or to break. I promise you, not one more second than necessary. I promise you that my timing is not intended to hurt you, it is intended to bless you.

Celebrate blessings...


My prayer:

Today was a day full of good news and blessings! THANK YOU!!! 

I know that I am not supposed to let circumstances control my feelings and it is very true that the worst day with you is better than the best day without you; but, every once in a while, I really love a day like today. It gives me hope, joy and reminds me that things can work out.

THANK YOU for the blessings!

What God Said Tonight:

It is good to celebrate blessings. 

Remember the story of the lepers. I healed ten but only one came back to thank me. That is human nature. You get blessed and you rush on with your life. But you, you can choose to be like the one and be grateful for the blessing. 

Not only does it make me feel good, but also it makes the blessing, and the joy of the blessing, live longer in you.

Monday, December 5, 2016

Shine...


My prayer:

I am not sure if I should be complaining about all of the battles from today that came flying at me or if I should be grateful that I made it through. As I say it out loud, the choice seems pretty obvious! At the end of the day, I am here, with you, relatively within my right mind. That is a "win" in my book!

Thank you God for all that you do for me. Living life with you means I get to laugh at adversity and be grateful in everything. I know, no matter how rough things get, you will turn it for my good. You have shown me over and over how true this promise is. I am grateful for all of your promises, but that one might be one of my favorites!

What God Said Tonight:

Sparkle and shine my jewel. You are set in this world to reflect my beauty. You are  the reflection of my light in the world. 

Shine, shine, shine. Do not hide your glittering reflection. 

I make you shine for a purpose. I light you up for a purpose. 

Be bold and show the world my love. Be confident in my love. I am in you and you are in me and the world needs to see that. 

Don't hide our love.

Sunday, December 4, 2016

Worship time with God...


My prayer:

Sweet Father and Lord. I am not too interested in words tonight but I am craving your presence. May I sit with you for awhile?

What God Said Tonight:

I have room. Come and sit with me. Come into a place of worship and peace here with me. 

The heavens rejoice with you. The angels are glad to have you here. I am blessed by your presence. Let me restore you. Let me heal you. Let me love you. 

A sweet spirit of peace, joy, and love has settled here with us. It is so beautiful. Do you see the colors and do you see the light? I smell the fragrance of your worship and it brings me great joy. 

I am yours. Never forget, I am yours. 

Saturday, December 3, 2016

The season of abundance...


My prayer:

Tired but grateful tonight God. Thank you for the perspective. No matter how hard life seems to me, I can always find someone (usually a lot of someones) who have it tougher and are dealing with it better than I am. You grace really is sufficient Lord.

What God Said Tonight:

This is a season of abundance and you will see abundance in your life. Right now it is a abundance of strife and challenges but soon it will be an abundance of blessings. 

I keep showing you the gold and the jewels for a reason. Your inheritance in Christ is soon to be here. You will see things and know things and have things that are beyond your comprehension. 

I will take care of you always. I will bless you very soon.

Thursday, December 1, 2016

God has...


My prayer:

Ok, so I almost completely lost it today. The stress built up to a level that had me ready to scream. But then, you were there. Reminding me that you are in charge. Showing me how my own toxic thinking was making it worse. wrapping your arms around me in comfort and making everything better.

What an awesome Father you are. What an awesome help you are. What an awesome friend you are. There is no life without you God.

What God Said Tonight:

You come tonight with a purpose. You have a need. 

I have space to move in your life and in your need. I have license to work it all out for your good. I have power to change the world. 

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

God has got it...


My prayer:

It was only by your supernatural health that I made it through this day God. Thank you for energy that was beyond what I should have had which also let me start getting things done really early. Thank you for favor with the people I had to have hard conversations with. Thank you for bringing this day to a close. 

I ask for your peace and rest tonight God. I need some help to shut off all of the racing thoughts.

What God Said Tonight:

Do you trust me? Do you know my promises for you? Did you hear the many times that I said I will work everything for your good? 

That is how you stop the racing thoughts. Trust, remember and believe that I will take care of it. 

Each time the thoughts try to run away with you, respond back to the thought with, "God has got it." Repeat it when you need to.

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

One change...


My prayer:

Today required more than I had to give. You said to wrap myself in you God. I am here to settle in your embrace. Trusting you to work everything for my good. Thank you for your promises and for your loving care over me.

What God Said Tonight:

There are so many interconnections between things, people and events in the world that when you change one thing and it can have massive effects. 

You are dealing with a small one change that is rippling through reality. I have seen it and I am here to restore it and you. I have you.

Monday, November 28, 2016

A storm is coming...


My prayer:

I don't know what to talk about tonight. My mind is all over the place but nothing worth really discussing. Maybe tonight is a night for listening instead of talking.

What God Said Tonight:

It is time to wrap up for awhile. A storm is coming that you will want to be protected in my arms and in my blood. Wrap yourself up in me and weather the storm. 

I will be our comfort and your protection. I will see to it that you are not harmed. But the storm has a purpose. The storm must come. 

Hide in my protection and I will see you through.

Sunday, November 27, 2016

Peace...


My prayer:

At peace and grateful tonight God. Thank you for this holiday. It was perfect. Back to work tomorrow and I will likely need a lot of your help. But, right now, I want to just stay in this place of peace with you. It is beautiful here.

What God Said Tonight:

Peace is a beautiful thing. It is worth more than gold or jewels. It is the healing balm for so many things. 

My peace, the peace that passes all understanding, the lasting peace, the peace that you can have no matter the circumstances, my peace can make all the difference. My peace is everlasting. My peace comes out of your trust in me and my  love for you but is not dependent on people or events to be present. 

My peace is my gift for you and it will never wear out. 

I love you sweet child.

Saturday, November 26, 2016

God's positioning...


My prayer:

Wonderful time of worship tonight God. Than you for the intimacy and power of your Spirit. There is nothing better than your Holy Spirit falling heavy on us during worship. It is so good it is indescribable. Thank you for letting me know you like that.

What God Said Tonight:

There were things in hour journey today that I know did not make sense but I promise they all had a purpose. I have some things to rearrange. 

Be patient and wait for my positioning. If it is rushed, you will not see the full manifestation of what I want to do for you. Trust and wait. 

Thursday, November 24, 2016

Already sent...


My prayer:

Thankful, grateful, more than I can say Lord! Thankful for the big things like  your love, salvation and healing. Thankful for the personal things like getting to spend Thanksgiving with mom, at her home, with her being able to walk again. Thankful for the little things like good traffic to drive in today. 

Today is my favorite holiday. A whole day to do nothing more than remember all of the reasons we have to be grateful. That is a really wonderful way to spend a day!


What God Said Tonight:

I have seen your sacrifice and I know your need. I have already sent the answer and it is on the way. You have very little time before you see the answer, the result, fully formed and dropped into your lap. 

When it is hear, you will wonder why you were so concerned. When it is here, you will remember the need no more. 

I have your answer and I have already sent it. Rest, trust believe.

Who God is...


My prayer:

What a crazy day God! Thank you for bringing me through it. 

I pray tonight for the blind woman who fell down the escalator at the train station this morning. I send your word of healing to her, physically and emotionally. I can't imagine how frightening that had to be for her. I know it scared the rest of us!

Awesome God, I pray for  your peace in this time of turmoil. My boss reminded me today that we get to have your peace that surpasses all understanding. No matter what. No matter what chaos is around us, we have the gift of your peace. 

You give us so many amazing gifts. Healing, salvation, and love to name a few. And, with all of that, you also give us peace. I really love your gifts God. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

You are welcome my child. 

I give because it is my nature to give. I love because it is who I am. You never have to worry about losing my love or me withdrawing my gifts. I can't, they are a part of who I am. 

I love you and you are covered. There is no more to do today. Just rest.


Tuesday, November 22, 2016

I know you...


My prayer:

Amazing Father. My list of things to be thankful for continues to grow. Thank you for your blessings. Thank you for your healing. Thank you for new perspective. Thank you for new habits. Thank you for peace. Thank you for having me right here, right now, with these people and with you. 

What God Said Tonight:

I know you. I know what you will do before you do it. I know your heart. I know your pain. I know your potential. 

I know you. I formed you. I created you. I walked with you through every day of this life. I dried your tears and I laughed at your jokes. 

I know you and I love you more than words can say. You are my precious child. You are a prince and a priest. You are mine and I am yours and nothing will ever change that. I love you forever.

Shattered glass...


My prayer:

I am not in the mood to talk tonight God but I am always in the mood to listen to you. What is on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:

Shattered glass is one of the few things in the world that can be completely destroyed and then melted down to become better than new. 

No matter how broken you are, my blood, the blood of Jesus Christ, can melt down your pain and make it into something brand new and beautiful. 

Let me recycle your pain into beauty. I love you.

Blind spots...


My prayer:

My thoughts are all over the place tonight God. In some ways, things, life, is more clear than ever and in other ways, I could not be more confused. 

I pray that you continue to lead and guide me. Continue to show me what I need to know. Continue to let me know what to do and where to go. 

I don't trust my own instincts or decisions right now. I need yours.

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes, when a bright light is shined onto something, it can blind you at first. I have shone a bright light on parts of your life and it will help you see the full picture eventually. Right now, it has you seeing some blind spots. You can see that the answers are there but when you look directly at them, you have a blind spot. 

That will go away. You will see what I have revealed. You will see the full picture. Give it some time and trust in me. 

I love you.

Knowledge and truth...


My prayer:

There are defining moments in life that change everything. Most of the time, I don't realize the profundity of those moments until long after they are gone. But once in a while, it is obvious. I am changed. How I see life is changed. I know and understand things tonight that I did not know or understand a week ago.

Sweet teacher and Father. I am so grateful that you don't ever waste anything. Every thing, event, person, moment in my life, you use to teach me truth. You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you for the knowledge and understanding.

What God Said Tonight:

Knowledge grows exponentially like a crystal. One piece of knowledge and truth will immediately spring into many off shoots of knowledge and truth. 

Be a seeker of knowledge and truth and see your life expand in ways you cannot imagine. No matter how much you know, I always have more to teach.

Life perspective...


My prayer:

I am a big ball of tired and grateful tonight God. You showed up and did your thing. Thank you for always taking everything, no matter how crudy, and turning it for our good. I see your glorious hand all over my life and the struggles of this week and I am grateful. I am also exhausted. 

What God Said Tonight:

Life perspective sometimes comes out of the simple act of stepping outside of your routine into a new challenge. You never truly know what it is to walk in someone else's shoes until you strap them on and take a stroll. 

I gift you with new perspective. See what life looks at from these shoes. I love you.

The blessing of the storm...


My prayer:

Ok God. A little improvement and a plan to move forward. That is a lot more than what I had yesterday. 

Thank you for always working things out. We are not yet through the storm but I see a path out. I see an outcome that doesn't break my heart. Thank you awesome Father!

What God Said Tonight:

The growth, the green, the richness that comes after a storm is some of the most fertile and lush growth there is. 

Don't forget to recognize the storm for the blessing it is. If you can see it that way, your life becomes much more filled with joy.

Withstand the storm...


My prayer:

Well, the last 48 hours have been unexpected to say the least. Emergency rooms, pain medications, frustration, and instead of relief, more pain.

God of all creation, Father, Savior, we need help. We need answers. We need healing. We need you. I continue to pray and lift up my mom. This pain must go. Regardless of the cause, it must go. It has robbed her of independence, of health, of joy. I only know one who comes to kill, steal and destroy. He is our enemy and he has no right to be in her or in her life. 

I bind any evil, I bind the devil that is trying to harm her, in the name of Jesus Christ who gives me the authority to do so. I pray Holy Spirit that you completely fill her so there is no room for evil to return. I ask it all as your child, awesome God. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

The storm is raging but you are not lost. The rain is coming down in sheets but you are not alone. I am your cover and I am your hope. 

Withstand the storm. Do not buckle. Do not waiver. I am with you. Cry out, but I am already here. Your prayers are not in vain. I have heard. I am working. I am sending the help. 

You have seen how I have worked everything out so you could be where you need to be this week. Right down to the timing. I am in this. I will see you through. I will show you the answers and the revelation. 

I am here. 

Rest in your knowledge of who I am and what I do. Rest in your love for me and my love for you. Rest and know that I will make the way and show you the way, when it is time.

Blessings...


My prayer:

Thank you for answered prayers today God. 

I try not to ask too much from you. I don't ever want our relationship to be one where all I do is take and all you do is give. I love you way too much for that. 

But there are times, like today, where nothing but your intervention will do. I am so grateful on those days that you hear me and you always take care of it. I am insanely blessed with you in my life. 

What God Said Tonight:

The mist is lifting and the land is green with life. The overgrowth is so deep you can't even walk through it. 

Bathe in the lushness of the life I have given you. Don't hold back from receiving every gift I have for you. 

Remember to be grateful. Not for my sake but for yours. When you forget to be thankful, you get in your head that you did it not me. Once you start thinking that way, it is all down hill. But, be grateful in my blessings and I promise I have more than you can handle. 

I love you my child and all my Kingdom is yours as long as you like and as long as you need.

Seasons of change...


My prayer:

God, I ask for help tomorrow with all of the known and unknown challenges I will face. Help me to be a blessing. Help me to handle everything in love. Help me to help others. 

Thank you for your presence in me. Let it be more evident tomorrow than it was today.

What God Said Tonight:

Your season of growth is nearly finished. You have grown beyond expectation and you are ready for the harvest season. You are ready to reap what you have sown. You are ready to be released into your next season. 

Seasons of change are exciting and uncomfortable. Don't be surprised by either. I am with you and you are moving in a straight path with me and toward me. I love child.

A greater beauty...


My prayer:

Thank you for a wonderful day God. I got to work off the edge of the stress of the week, hang out with good friends, treat myself a little...what a great break! Awesome God, I can't imagine how I would be able to live this life without you. You are my calm in the storm, my strength in times of weakness, my joy all the time! With you, life is bearable and often wonderful. Thank  you for being in my life.

What God Said Tonight:

The world and your life is made up of so many different pieces and people. You don't understand the true complexity involved in being you. I will show you some day just how interconnected you are with the world and all of your brothers and sisters. 

Your life is like an enormous quilt made of many different colors and fabrics, all with their own beauty but with a greater beauty when put together. I love you.

God is more...


My prayer:

Never before have I felt so completely alienated from the world around me God. I have always been a little different. But the last couple of days, the verse where you say I am not of this world...I know what that means more clearly than ever. 

Awesome God, give me the ability to live filled with your grace in this less than perfect world. Give the ability to continue to wait for you to come and give us a new world. 

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I am more than an image in your mind, a voice in your head. I am the great and mighty God of the universe, As such, I can move mountains for you. 

Never back off of your hopes and your prayers. Remember I can do exceedingly, abundantly and above all that you could hope for.

Don't feed the monster...


My prayer:

Awesome God. Today there was turmoil, uncertainty, hatred, joy, hope, hopelessness, calls for peace, calls for unity, calls for protest and division among friends and family. Sitting here tonight all I can do is remember your promises to work everything for our good. All I can pray is that your will be done. All I can hope is that there is a greater purpose behind this season.

Thank you for being my hope God.

What God Said Tonight:

Don't feed the monster. Don't feed the enemy. He preys on your fear. He gobbles up your doubt. It is like air to his lungs. Don't give it to him. 

Hold your head high in your confidence in me. Stand tall and show the world that you do not fear because I am with you. Your witness in this season can be very powerful. Become part of the good to come from the mess. Don't be the mess.  

Love you!

Trust God...


My prayer:

Trying really hard to trust that you have everything under control God. Things look pretty crazy and out of control but I will trust you in the storm. I will trust that you will work out everything for my good/our good. Trusting your promises, not what I see in front of me.

What God Said Tonight:

Not everything is as it seems. But even greater, I can use any circumstance to achieve my purpose. 

I have not lost control, I have taken control to move things forward faster. I cannot listen to the cries of my children for one second longer than needed. I hear you. I hear your cries and I am securing your future, even now. 

You don't have to trust the circumstances, You just have to trust that I am bigger than the circumstance. 

I love you.

Grow like a tree...


My prayer:

What a nice change today God. Thank you for slowing down the world a little. Thank you also for the perspective. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. I guess I have known that but getting to see it lived out by someone close to me really brings it home and makes it real.

Thank you for where you have planted me. Thank you for making me prosper where you have planted me.

What God Said Tonight:

Your life, the plan for your life is much more complicated than you realize. You see some of the bits and pieces, here and there, but you don't see the big picture. You can't see where you are growing to. 

It is like a tree. A tree does not know where it is headed, it just grows a little each day. The bark expanding, the branches reaching. Each day it becomes bigger and reaches higher. 

I know the final picture, when you are fully grown, and it is beautiful and complicated. As my child, like the tree, you do not need to understand how you will grow or what you will look like, just keep growing and reaching each day. I will make sure it works out.

Counterfeit...


My prayer:

Awesome healing God. I pray for your healing power to work in and through me tonight. I pray that you make everything right that is wrong. I am not sure what is wrong but you know. Thank you Jesus. 

What God Said Tonight:

A stone painted red and a ruby are very different things although they are both red rocks. 

The ability to discern value and truth in a world of cheapness and lies is incredibly valuable. I have my power at work in you. I have my power at work in the world. See the beauty, see the power, see the good that is coming. 

Know the difference between good and its counterfeit. 

I love you my child and you are healed.

Believe, trust, wait...


My prayer:

Thank you for a pretty wonderful day God. Not everything went as planned and not everything went the way I thought I wanted it to but everything turned out wonderful. I loved spending the day with you. I loved the reunion with the Prayer and Worship group tonight. Wonderful.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your foundation and your strength. I am here because you are. I live and dwell within you and where you go, there I am. 

Believe in me and I will do the impossible in your life. Trust in me and I will see you succeed and prosper. Wait on me and I will take you where you need to be. 

I love you, now and forever.

Little miracles...


My prayer:

Today was one of those little miracles of yours God. There is simply no natural way I could have gotten done everything that I got done today. There was clearly more to do than there was time to do it but here I sit, living proof that all things are possible through Christ. 

I am sure a lot of people would think this isn't a miracle or this is no big deal, but to me, it was truly a miracle and proof of your amazing and incredible love in my life. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

Miracles come in many forms. I created the world, miracle. I created you, miracle. I fed 5000, miracle. I fed one tonight who did not know where his next meal was coming from, miracle. 

If you are going to be thankful only for the big, parting the Red Sea miracles, you are going to miss out on a lot of joy. 

I am you God and the maker of miracles. I am your refuge and place of worship. I am everything you need and I am all yours. I will fill  your life with miracles if you remain sensitive to them.
