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.

You will know...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am praying for wisdom and understanding tonight. 

I am not sure if what I am looking at is an opportunity from you or if it is temptation trying to get me out of position. It might not be either. It might be me grasping at straws, hoping for change. I don't know but I know you do. 

Please help me to understand. Guide me to the right decisions. Keep me in your will. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I know and understand why you are looking for the way out. I promise, when it comes, it will not be ambiguous. You will not have to question, "Is this it?" You will know and there will be little choice other than to move in that direction. 

A timing is preset for this. It is good to keep our eyes open but you will not miss this next change, opportunity. I will not let you. 

I love you and I want every good thing for you. You are mine and I am yours forever.

My prayer:

Whooo! What a difference a day makes! From peace and contentment to strife, struggle, and craziness, all in 24 hours! 

Thanks for being with me and getting me through no matter what is going on. And thank you for the good news to end this bad day! It didn't make all the bad of the day go away but it did remind me that you will bless me no matter what. 


What God Said Tonight:

Every piece fits together, eventually and for your good. 

I know things look rotten on the face of it all. You were slogging through mud today. But even mud has it's purpose. Used to build, it can be great. Walking through it can be tough and slow going. Whether the mud is holding your house together or dragging off your boots, the mud is still just the mud. It does not have intentions, good or bad. It just is. It is what you do with it that changes its usefulness. 

The same is true of the circumstances in your life. You can use them to help you build or you can try to walk through them and let them bog you down. Choose to build and you won't be sorry. 

I love you and we will build something amazing out of the mud from today.

My prayer:

I spend so much time trying to figure this life out, but tonight, I am just happy to be here with you. I am at peace. I am rested. I am content. For once, I don't need anything, I am not asking for answers, and I am not complaining. I love you Abba.

What God Said Tonight:

Enjoy this moment. Contentment is not so easy to find in this world. 

Your  peace is lasting because it is not born from circumstance. Your peace is born in me. I never change so your peace does not change. 

Your contentment, however requires a stillness and maturity that is often hard won and difficult to keep. Contentment is meant to be transitory. If it was permanent, you would never grow and you would never change. 

Enjoy this moment of contentment. Hold it dear to you. But let go when it is time. 

I love you.

God's survival kit...

My prayer:

Praising you for my life tonight God. I know I tend to complain but the truth is, I have it pretty good. A roof over my head, food on my table, a group of wonderful friends and family around me and, in the center of it all YOU! It doesn't get much better than that. 

I apologize for every time I have forgotten that. Thanks for loving me anyway!

What God Said Tonight:

A time of reflection is healing and can recenter your life and priorities. It is good. 

A life of joy, my joy, just is. You don't have to work for it, you just have to receive it. I give joy away freely with no strings attached. Connect with the joy I have put in you and you can weather any storm. 

Peace settles you and joy lights you up. Find my peace and joy in you and you will have all you need to survive. 

I love you, I am with you, I am never leaving you.

Freedom to...

My prayer:

What a great day God. Thank you for every minute. 

Thank you for freedom. Living the free life that you provide for me is pretty wonderful. When I was young I thought freedom came from being an adult. But, as I became an adult, I realized I had even less freedom. It wasn't until I truly began to understand your grace over my life that I began to experience freedom. 

I pray that everyone of your people gets to have the joy of your freedom in their life. No more guilt and no more shackles. 

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

A freedom from something feels good for a moment. Freedom to something feels good forever. 

I give you freedom to. I give you the freedom to love me and be loved by me, no matter what. I give you the freedom to know that whatever happens in life, I have and will take care of you. You have the freedom to share this love and this freedom with everyone you meet. 

I love you.

Drink him in...

My prayer:

Thank you for the moments of joy today God. They were welcome little oasis.

My prayers tonight are for the usual, provision, protection, health, and peace for me, my family, my friends, and all of your kids throughout the world. Not very original but I feel like I need to get back to basics tonight. And, in that vein, I pray above all things that your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

 It is not important to hear my words tonight. It is important to spend time together in the presence of my Holy Spirit. Drink him in. You need that refreshment. I love you.

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Hidden treasures...

My prayer:

I have a lot on my mind tonight God but I am really not in the mood to talk about it. You have heard my prayers and it is up to me to patient and wait on you. I am doing my best. 

I love you and I trust you.

What God Said Tonight:

Find the small celebrations. 

You have gotten out of the habit of looking for the silver lining, the blessings in the mess. I promise, I always put some for you there, no matter how tough the circumstances are. I leave them like little hidden treasures to be sought out. Remember to look for them. They are for you and they will help you through even the toughest season. 

I love you. I will bless you all the days of your life. Remember to look for them.

Monday, September 11, 2017

Wait for God...

My prayer:

Thank you for the guidance today. You saved me a lot of hassle. 

Sweet Father, there is so much wrong in this world, I honestly don't know how to pray about it. Every time I turn around, something horrible is happening. Natural disasters, people hurting others, and some truly unspeakable acts. 

I know you always say that this time will not last one second longer than it has to and I believe you but it is hard to imagine things getting worse or living with all of this for much longer. 

We need you more than ever God. Rescue us.

What God Said Tonight:

What I have to say, you don't want to hear. I need you to wait. 

I know it seems bad and it is but I will shelter you. I will keep you safe in the storm. But the storm must come. There is purpose in the storm. 

I need choices made and sometimes you have to push people to make a choice. The time is short but find a way to wait for me. Lean on my strength, my peace and my protection. I will see you through this. But we have to go through it. 

I love you, now and forever.

Easy peasy...

My prayer:

Two days of pure fun and great people. Thank you God. I really needed that. 

As I go into this next week I ask for your continued guidance and wisdom. It feels like a really important time right now and I will need you to help me know how best to handle everything. 

I love you and I love that you are always there to help me.

What God Said Tonight:

There are things lining up, even as you pray here tonight. 

I don't want you to worry or stress about it. You are trusting me and that is all you need to do. Truly, that is all you need to do. I have everything else under control. 

The plans I have for you are not only good but they are perfect and happening just how I have planned. No worry, no stress, no wondering, I have got you and this step is going to be the easiest of your life. It is true. 

I love you.

Friday, September 8, 2017


My prayer:

I am so grateful this week is over. I pray for rest and restoration. I leave everything in your hands God.

What God Said Tonight:

A river runs softly down the valley and a bird takes to flight over the meadow. There can be great peace in the middle of any situation if stay your eyes on me. Don't look away, don't look up, don't look down. I will bring you peace.

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Hang in there...

My prayer:

I am trying to keep a good attitude God but it is hard. I am trying to remember what you have said that you will work all things for my good. I believe it and I am grateful. It is still hard to get through days like today with a smile. 

I pray for rest and restoration tonight God.

What God Said Tonight:

I have worked to see you positioned for this time. Don't give up before you see the destination and the goal realized. 

It will be worth it I promise. Just hang in a bit longer. I will reveal the truth.

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Not as it appears...

My prayer:

I survived today. Sometimes that in itself is victory! Thank you for your help today God. We have a couple more days with more to do than seems possible, but, with you, literally all things are possible. Thank you for being in my life and making me more capable than I am on my own.

What God Said Tonight:

What you see is not always what it appears. What you see as drudgery or something to be endured can actually be important preparation for your future. 

I never waste an experience. Your life is in my hands and guided by me. Through that, I will use every last thing in your life for your good. So, even in the times where nothing seems worthwhile, know and understand I am still at work and every last things will be used for your good. 

I love you.

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

The storm...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. So many in danger tonight. So many devastated. I pray for the people in Texas, Montana, Oregon, California, Sierra Leone and all of the other places that have been devastated by natural disaster. I pray for Florida and all of the places that are under the threat of natural disaster.

God, it is all around us and you are the only protection. You are the only escape. You are the only one who can redeem what is lost. Please God, help your people.

What God Said Tonight:

The earth, the world is responding to the impetus for change that is coming. The world is changing as it needs to do. 

There is an end to the suffering. There is a joy that comes in the midst of the storm and a glory that comes after. I am the great redeemer and I will not leave my people begging. I am your fortress and your strong tower. I will stand over you in the storm and keep you safe, when nothing else will. 

I love you more than life. that's why I gave up my life for your salvation. I am glad to have done it and there is no way I will let go of you now.

Monday, September 4, 2017


My prayer:

Thank you for the reminder tonight God about how following sin takes us places we don't intend to go and don't want to be. 

I am more than grateful for your grace and mercy to cover my sin. I am also grateful that you continue to show me the benefit of following you vs. following the world. Finally, I am beyond grateful that you so often don't require me to learn that lesson the hard way. You have patience with me and teach me with books, movies, etc. so I don't have to personally go through the pain of the wrong choice. 

You are so very good to me God. Thank you for your gentleness, kindness, and grace. I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I am teacher, Rabboni. I have many tools to teach with. I teach with stories. I teach with lessons. I teach with words and I teach with the Spirit. 

I love you and I will teach you all you need to know as you need it. It is one of the benefits of having me in your life. I am all knowing so I can share with you what you need to know when you need it. 

I love you and I am with you in everything.

Sunday, September 3, 2017

God hears...

My prayer:

Awesome God. There are so many people who need your help tonight, I kind of don't want to take up your time with any minor thoughts or issues I have going on. I pray God that you hear your people's cries for help tonight and that you show up in a very real and tangible way in their trouble.

What God Said Tonight:

Heaven here on earth. It happens more often than you might realize. Every time a prayer goes up, an angel comes down. Every time a prayer is said, I hear, I respond. 

I have the Holy Spirit with you so there is no separation between us in these times of trouble. I have the angels watching over you. 

I have more to do, If I did not, there would be no need to delay another minute. But in these times, be assured I am with you, I hear you, I will respond. Sweet children, I am yours and you are mine forever. 

Friday, September 1, 2017

Not too late...

My prayer:

Remembering big dreams tonight God. When I look at my life it is strange. In some ways, it is so much more than I ever imagined. I have seen things, done things, gone places, that I never once imagined. Then, I think of the dreams that have not yet come true. 

Are they still possible? Is it getting too late? I believe those dreams were directly from you and so I think they must happen some day but it has been such a long time, it is hard to keep believing they will.

Regardless of what life has for me, as long as you are with me, that is all that really matters. I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I can make miracles in the blink of an eye. There is no "too late" with me. Your life has barely begun. You have an eternity with me. These mere decades are barely the start. 

I have things for you that you have not imagined yet. I have glory to show you that will leave you breathless. I love you and we are not done yet.

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Everlasting life...

My prayer:

Lifting up my awesome Lord tonight. Praying you get everything you need and want God. Praying that your will is fulfilled. Praying that there is nothing missing and nothing lacking for you. I love you and pray that you get your heart's desire!

What God Said Tonight:

We have died and been resurrected together. As you are in me and I am in you, therefore when I died, you died with me and when I rose, you rose with me. 

There is no death that can touch you now. Your life is everlasting with me. We are in an never ending embrace that will outlast the stars. 

I love you. I choose you. I surrender my grace to you.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017


My prayer:

Awesome God. I have spent all day trying to clarify muddy communication between people. If there is anything you want to say, I am here to listen but I am out of words. I have used them all up today.

What God Said Tonight:

I love you. I absolutely love you. 

I love you in your success and I love you in your defeat. I love you when you love me and I love you when you don't. 

I love you. Don't forget. I will always love you. 

Tuesday, August 29, 2017


My prayer:

I am worn out by life tonight God. So much tragedy with so much inspiring love and support. 

That is one thing about a natural disaster whether it is a flood or an earthquake or whatever, while the disaster is horrible, watching people come together to help each other restores my faith in us humans. 

Wouldn't it be great if we did not have to wait for a crisis and we just lived our lives that way, grateful to be alive and thinking, how can I help someone else. That would be amazing if we could all find a way to live like that! 

God, I pray that the compassion we feel when someone is in tribal be present every day, in crisis and out.

What God Said Tonight:

A crisis today is a memory tomorrow. Do not let the tragedy worry you. It is fleeting and an opportunity for God's grace to come in. 

Monday, August 28, 2017

The chance...

My prayer:

I am not in much of a talking mood tonight God but I am always in a listening mood with you. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

I am not blind to the suffering that is in this world. I don't take it lightly. I don't ignore your pain. The pain of this world, the pain in your life wounds me more deeply than you can know. 

I did not intend for the world to be as it is but I am diligently working to see it put right. It is not an easy or simple thing. Getting everyone in place and at the right time. Making sure everyone gets a choice. Seeing that no one is left behind, except of their own choosing. That takes time and effort. 

I love you enough to make the world wait for you to decide to come with us. I love each of my children enough to make sure they have that chance. 

Sunday, August 27, 2017

God with me...

My prayer:

Thank you for a really great day God. Beautiful weather, a great bike ride, good food, a great book and time to enjoy it. Sometimes it really is the simple pleasures that make life worthwhile.

Thank you that you are always with me, in good times and in bad. Thank you for always taking care of me. I LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

I have walked so many miles in the shoes of those I love. I hurt when you hurt and I laugh when you laugh. 

I can't promise you a life without pain, without struggle. That is a byproduct of this world that has been damaged by sin. I can promise that no matter what is after you, no matter what the struggle, no matter how deep the pain, I will be right there with you. I will make a way out for you. I will heal the hurt and I will build you back stronger. 

I love you. I love you. I love you. 

Friday, August 25, 2017

Life with God...

My prayer:

Thank you for your healing and your protection today God. There was a lot of tragedy and struggle throughout the world today, but that is nothing new. Sometimes I really wish I could go back to Adam and Eve and just tell them "No, DON'T DO IT!"

What would that world have looked like. What would life be like if there were no original sin separating God and man? If we had been obedient to your one rule, what would it have been like?

Maybe I don't want to know. It is harder to miss something if you don't know what it is, maybe.

I love you God and I anxiously await the day when the world is reconciled to you and freed from evil. 

What God Said Tonight:

I had a perfect world and a perfect plan that was delayed due to free will and evil. I have not lost the vision of that world. I am more dedicated to it than ever. I sacrificed my son for that vision. 

The thing is, now that you know life separated from me, life with me is sweeter. Just  as you can't really miss something you have never known, you can also never really appreciate something that you have always had. 

While this was not my original plan, in the end, the eternity we have together will be just that much sweeter for the things we have been through together. Don't waste time thinking of what could have been. Keep your eyes open to what is and what will be. 

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Your dream...

My prayer:

Some days feel like swimming upstream through quicksand. Today was one of those days. I am grateful to be at the end of it. I am grateful for you and for your presence. I am grateful for the honor of hearing you speak.

What God Said Tonight:

I say it again, I have yet to see my children perish with their dream inside of them. 

Life without a dream is empty and dangerous. Live your dream each day. Even if it is just a little bit. Live it and know that I love your dream. 

I love you of course but I also love your dream. 

Wednesday, August 23, 2017


My prayer:

Awesome God. I am too tired to really think or put words together but not to tired to listen to my Awesome Father. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

I have just about finished. I have a little more to do. You will see the purpose and understand the cost when this is done. The burden has been heavy but the result is worth the pain. 

I have loved you from the dawn of time and I will love you past the end. You are perfectly and wondrously made in my image. 

Here is a little thing that you are holding against each other. It will seem so small to you in the reality of tomorrow. No matter the hurt, let it be free to die. 

Come back to your center, come back to me and we will see a new reality and a new joy together. 

Tuesday, August 22, 2017


My prayer:

Another day and another set of challenges. At least I am not bored! Thank you for all of your help today God. Thank you for all of the healing you have done in me that allowed me to deal with the issues as they came calmly instead of getting frustrated, irritated and losing it.

You are wonderful and everything good in me is only because of you. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

A table has many uses but is always at its best when it is balanced. 

Find your balance in my peace. Then you can be used for so many useful things. 

An unbalanced table, an unbalanced person, can't be trusted to hold up. 

I love you and I give balance through peace tonight.

Monday, August 21, 2017

Timing is everything...

My prayer:

Praying for hope and for strength. Praying for wisdom and guidance. Praying for help and stamina. Tonight God, if you have got it, I am praying for it. 

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I have more than enoghu for you child. You are feeling at the end of your rope but I will give you your next step, your next word, you next assurance that all will work for your good. 

I have everything you need and I am not stingy. I will hold it until the applicable time. There are so many things that if you receive them too early, they can destroy you. Receive them on time, have the greatest blessing. Receive them early and total destruction of your life, your family and your home. 

That is why it is so important to wait on my timing, even when it is difficult. Let your blessings be blessings in their right time. 

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Time to stand...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am not very good at living life. Oh, I am successful and a goal achiever. But when it comes to just living and enjoying life, that I struggle with. One of the reasons I am glad that I never had kids is that means I never forced another human being to live life. 

That is really horrible isn't it? I mean life is a gift they tell me. And, in truth, I have had some amazing experiences and known some amazing people. But, at the end of the day, I long for the day that I can be with you in heaven. I long for the day where I am not bombarded with evil every day. It is exhausting and depressing and I have a great desire to run away, but where do you run in a world filled with it? 

I am sorry to dump on you tonight God. I am just in a bad place and need some help.

What God Said Tonight:

Thank you for opening your heart. This is not news to me you know. I know you better than you know yourself. 

The evil of the world is harder for some of my children than others. You have a great sense of justice and the need for [protection of those who are weaker. You were born with this and your life has nurtured it. It makes living in this world harder for you. 

But please know, I need you here, now. I need those who can't let the evil of the world win. I need people who know in their hearts that something is not right. And, I need you  to pray. I need you to fight. I need your spiritual weapons to be active and sharp. 

Stop numbing yourself to the world and allow that which I put in you to shine. I love you and now is not a time to run, now is a time to stand.

Friday, August 18, 2017

Spiritual war...

My prayer:

Well today was sure a lot better than yesterday! Thank you Jesus! I am happy and at peace here in your presence. What more could I ever ask for?

Awesome Father, I pray your will be done in every last thing here on earth just like it is in heaven. You reign and I worship you!

What God Said Tonight:

There is a war that has been brewing and is about to break out.You have sensed the tension. It is nearly time. 

I do not need you to fight this war. My warrior angels are primed and ready. I do need you to pray. I need you to use those spiritual weapons I have equipped you with and declare the truth in prayer. 

I will see this war end as swiftly as possible. 

On the other side is a peace you cannot yet imagine. It is a peace that has not been experienced on this world. 

I love you, I will protect you. Pray for victory. 

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Stubborn evil...

My prayer:

Today was brutal God. Thanks for getting me through it! I am ready for rest and peace in your presence. 

Thank you for the high level of discernment and awareness today. It really helped!

What God Said Tonight:

Evil gets stubborn sometimes. It sticks around longer than you want it to and longer than it should. Your vigilance for evil cannot waver. 

Your spiritual weapons must remain sharp and at the ready. I have redeemed you and I have given you the power over evil. Use them. Fight the evil in the spirit world that is in attack mode over your life. The weapons of your warfare are not carnal but they are mighty. Use them, now and often. 

I love you. I will protect you.

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


My prayer:

Sweet Father. I want to feel your love tonight. I want others to feel your love. Your love is like no other. Your love makes everything ok. There is a sweet fragrance to your love sometimes. God, let me feel your love surround and fill me.

What God Said Tonight:

I am here. In you, around you, with you always. 

My love is yours. I will not withhold my love from you. I could not if I tried. It was yours from the moment you were created. 

Some things just are. You don't question whether the sun is in the sky, even though you don't always feel its heat. You know, that it is there, always. Know the same about my love. Sometimes you feel it and sometimes you don't but it is more constant than the sun and more reliable than anything, ever. 

I love you.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Good God...

My prayer:

I met a truly amazing person tonight God. A great grandfather of 26 great grandchildren who has lived and seen SO MUCH. What a blessing getting to know him. Thank you for bringing us together.

Each day, or at least most days, there is a little gem. At least one great moment. He was my gem today. 

God, I value those gems so much. Sometimes, when things are really rough, it are those gem moments that give me the fuel to make it one more day. Thank you for all of the gems you have put in my life.

What God Said Tonight:

I am the maker of gems. You could call me a jeweler but that does not really describe me. 

Everything good comes from me. I am the source of goodness and truth in this world. I am.

Monday, August 14, 2017


My prayer:

Today was harder than I expected but here tonight with you, I am at peace. I am yours. I am waiting for your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

Finding direction on your own can be very complicated and sometimes impossible. 

Man has made so many tools to help you find your way, your purpose, your direction, and while they do not usually do harm, they are often so complicated to use, getting the right answer can be pretty difficult. 

It is one of the reasons that I was called "The Way" when I was on earth. I never meant for you to have to determine your purpose and direction in life. I had always planned that we would live life together and that I could be your navigator. 

Put your effort into hearing my direction and following me and I promise I will not let you down. Remember, throughout the day, not just here at night, ask me which way to go and I will guide you. I will lead you to your opportunities, your blessing, your purpose. 

I love you.

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Trail blazing...

My prayer:

What a great day of rest today God. Thank you. Tomorrow is back to work and the uncertainty of it all. I ask for your help to remember that you have everything under control and that you are my provision, teacher, guide, and Lord. It is my intention to stay in your peace throughout the day, but I will probably need some help to do that.

What God Said Tonight:

Being the first to try something is not always the easiest position to be in. It takes courage and it takes trust. Many people will rather wait to see how it goes for someone else. 

I have not built you that way. I created you to be in front and to try the things others will not. You will never be satisfied doing what everyone else is doing. I created you to blaze trails. 

Remember that and embrace this season that you are in. Do not let fear or anything else keep you from moving ahead. I love you.

Saturday, August 12, 2017


My prayer:

Sweet Father. There are thousands of things that I love about you. One of them is that you understand me. You know what I am saying, even when I don't say it correctly. You know my heart. You know what I need before I even know that I need it. 

I really love that about you!

What God Said Tonight:

Your heart tonight is worried and it doesn't have to be. 

The terror around you will not harm you. This latest threat is not for you. You are protected in the shelter of my arms. 

Look at me, trust in me and let the terror pass over us like a fog blowing in from the sea. 

I love you.

Friday, August 11, 2017

Destiny season...

My prayer:

I am feeling a sense of anticipation and great hope tonight God. It feels like something great is coming. I am not sure what it is but I like this feeling!

Thank you for a great day, for strength and health. You are my everything.

What God Said Tonight:

The next step is so close and you are going to love it so much. It is a departure, a change, but one that will not be frightening at all. You will feel so immediately at home and at peace. You will have no doubt that it is from me. 

I am taking you into your destiny season. It is not wishful thinking and it is not your own hope speaking. I am here and it is time and I am taking you to great places. 

Stick with me, keep your eyes on me because we are going to move

Thursday, August 10, 2017

A healing wave...

My prayer:

Too tired to think or talk but I would love to hear your sweet voice before going to bed. What is on your mind tonight God?

What God Said Tonight:

A healing wave is coming. The illness and damage that has been haunting my people is about to be wiped away. I will eradicate that which is keeping you from moving on. 

Be ready for healing. Be ready for wholeness. I am sending it your way. More is coming. Be ready to receive.

The demon of pride...

My prayer:

Sweet Father. I am realizing tonight that I missed an opportunity to share your greatness today. And, even worse, I allowed someone to credit me with something that was really your doing. I am very sorry. 

Awesome God, all glory is yours. Everything good and right in me is only because of you in my life. I apologize that I did not make that clear today.

What God Said Tonight:

Your forgiveness is already yours. I have covered you, now and always with my sacrifice. I love you and I know you did not mean harm but I am glad that you have seen it. I am glad for you. Your future will be easier and better if you can remember this . 

It is not about doing right or wrong but it is about the demon of pride that can so quickly damage you. Pride is a weapon of the enemy and like so many weapons, it feels so good at first. That is what makes you allow it into your life. That initial rush. But, in the end, it will destroy you if you let it. Crushing it by bringing it out into the open is your best defense. 

I love you. I forgive you and I crush the pride that tried to get at you today.

The Father...

My prayer:

Today was interesting and eventful! Everything turned out ok because you always make things work for my good but it kept me on my toes for sure!

As I sit here tonight, I am having a hard time slowing down my thoughts. There are so many things running through my mind, I am having a hard time quieting that all down so I can listen to you. 

God, I ask for peace in my mind and my spirit so I can get my mind off of the world and onto you. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

There really is nothing to worry about. I am in charge and I will not let you down. Be at peace in the full knowledge and understanding that I am your Father and I will always take care of you. 

In a world that runs at a thousand miles per hour, you can't keep up. But, I can. Trust me to guide you. Trust that I will warn you of danger. Trust that I will get you through every challenge that lands in your path. 

I will not let you go and I will not let you down, ever. I am yours and you are mine and I will take care of you always. 

Find peace in that. Find rest in that. Find joy and freedom in that. Rest well my child.

The best...

My prayer:

My mind wandered around a lot of odd thoughts today God. I ask that you help me discern if there are any lessons that you would like me to learn out of those thoughts or if they were just random. 

In particular the thoughts about living a satisfying life. When my life is less than what I want it to be, I have the comfort that this life is just the beginning and I am just visiting here. But I wonder if that assurance has allowed me to accept less than the best in this life and more importantly, less than what you want for me.

Thank you for the time to rest enough to allow my thoughts to wander!

What God Said Tonight:

I want the very best for you. I want seas of diamonds for you. I want gold streets and jeweled walls for you. I want unceasing joy for you. I want divine health and wholeness for you. I want love that is unsurpassed for you. 

Never doubt what I want for you. What ever is the very best, that is what I want for you. I have an eternity with you and I will see you have the best of everything. 

I will also see you struggle and in those times, I will give you the best of what you need to get through the struggle. Since you are in this world, I will see you get hurt and I will provide you the best, deepest and most complete healing for the hurt. 

I love you and as my child, you can expect the best for your life, now and forever.

My prayer:

I pray that your message and your love get out to the world even when we mess up the message. I pray that your purpose and your love get out to the world even when we get it wrong. 

As one of your imperfect kids, I have to know that you will make it right even when I get it wrong. Because I get it wrong a lot. 

What God Said Tonight:

A dream, a hope, a prayer for tomorrow is a feather on the wind. A prayer for today, for now, can have substance and strength. 

Let's look at this moment. Let's concern ourselves with this place in time. Tomorrow will always be there. I will take care of tomorrow. But, right now, right here, what is it that we need to do. Is there a hurt inside of you that needs healing? Is there a brokenness that needs mending. I am really good at that. 

Let's get you healed tonight. Let's see you made whole. 

I love you. Let me help you.

God's freedom...

What God Said Tonight:

I am pretty content tonight. No urgent needs, worries, requests. Just here to be with you and hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

A little faith and a lot of trust will get you through most anything. 

I am here, in you and in your life. That gives you freedom on many levels. It frees you from death. It frees you from worry. It frees you from guilt. The thing is, this freedom is available to you but you have to receive it. I won't force it on you. Your faith and belief in the freedom I provide has to be real and tangible in or life. When  it is, you can trust me and see the freedom I have for you loosed in your life and covering everything you do. 

My freedom is there for you. Do not cry and bang your fists on the floor in anguish. The fear, the depression, the lack of hope that the world lives with does not have to rule your life. You have me. Believe I will do what I have said I will do. Trust that I will be your God and take care of you and live in the freedom that I bought for you. 

I love you, now and forever.

New season...

My prayer:

A week ago today, I had just been released from the hospital. That puts life in perspective! 

Thank you God for health, strength, recovery, and your love. You are truly wonderful and I am truly grateful.

What God Said Tonight:

A new day, a new season, a new challenge, a new blessing. Your new is here. Your break from the ordinary is before you. Your rut buster has arrived. The time for the old has past and the time to move into the new is here. 

Don't get stuck or stagnant holding onto an old season when a new season has arrived. The old season is comfortable. It may have even been fun. But if you don't let go, you can never see what I have for you next. You can never know the new joy I have for you. You will get stale and even the old that you love will grow cold and rotten. 

Don't resist this change. It is truly for your good.

A perfect ballet...

My prayer:

I am pretty worn out tonight God. Today was a bit rough. But, it definitely could have been worse! 

I ask for rest tonight God and help facing tomorrow with that hope and expectation you have been talking about.

What God Said Tonight:

Everything is coming together for your good. You may not see it yet. You can, if you look carefully. However, even if you can't see it, hear me and trust me that it is happening, now. 

You will see great wonders and stand in awe. I have set it in motion and am standing by you as it comes together. 

I love you and this is beautiful. Try to see it with me. Try to see the perfect blending of circumstances and timing to meet all of your needs. It is like a ballet. A perfect ballet.

My prayer:

What a great day! Feeling strong and able to find joy throughout the day. Thank you for all of the reminders and opportunities to connect with people today. It was fun!

What God Said Tonight:

I will give you a picture or a phrase not to tease you and not to give you some kind of premonition. I give these things to you to feed your hope. 

Life cam be so hard. I know, I remember. Without hope, there is often no way to get through the day or even the hour. I am your hope and through me I will always find those flashes of hope to give you in the hard times and the good. 

Keep your eyes and ears open. Look for the light in the distance, the silver lining, the glimpse of what could be. I have placed hope all around you and within you. Seek it out and it will sustain you. 

I love you.

My prayer:

WOOHOO! We made it! Thank you for all of your help today God. I could not have done it without you. 

I am so grateful for you in my life. You make me so much better, stronger, kinder, smarter, and successful than I could ever be on my own. Being your kid has some pretty awesome benefits.

How was your day? What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

I am taking you on a journey that will go through deep tunnels and majestic peaks. You will look out at times and think, "This is so wonderful, I can't believe I am here." You will look out at other times and think, "This is so awful, I can't believe I am here."

Through it all, never lose sight that we are moving forward. Through it all, never lose site that I am driving the train and have a destination in mind. 

The journey seems to take up all of your awareness at times but remember there is a destination and a purpose to the trip. I love you.

My prayer:

What an awesome day God. Thank you for the lives that you touched and the people you healed. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of seeing you wrap your love around people. Your anointing was so palpable. I absolutely loved it!

Tomorrow it is back to work. I pray for the strength and stamina to make it through the day without setting back the recovery at all. As you have done so many times before, as my strength wears out, yours comes in and gets me through. 

Have I told you lately how much I love you? You are my everything.

What God Said Tonight:

Each day is like the beach shortly after the tide has gone out. Everything is new. Some is expected. You always have sand and kelp. You always have some rocks and some shells. But sometimes the tide leaves big surprises as well. Some good, some rotten. 

Life is like this. Each day is new with some things expected and some that are not. Just because you have seen the tides of yesterday does not mean you know what the tide will leave for tomorrow. 

Remember to approach each day with he expectation of greatness. I am in you and when that is true, anything is possible. I love you and I have great surprises for you. Look to your new day with joy and expectation.

God's view...

My prayer:

There are moments in life that when I am anticipating them, I can't imagine getting through them. Those are almost always the moments that when they occur, I am shocked at how quickly and easily they are resolved. 

It seems to me that as long as I wait on your timing, everything works out exactly as it is meant to. The waiting for your timing can take years and even decades but when it is right, all I have to do is sit back and watch you take care of it. 

I guess there is a decision point in there for me. I have to recognize your timing. But, honestly, the only way I know if I understood your timing correctly is by seeing the outcome. 

I am a novice at this thing called life God. Thank you for your patience, your teaching and your help.

What God Said Tonight:

I have a better view of the landscape than you do. I see the end from the beginning. I see a far bigger picture than you can. That vision allows better understanding of timing and solutions to the daily challenges. 

I don't expect you to have my vision I just ask you to trust that I have it and I will help you with it. 

I love you and I will see you ushered through this life an into eternity in my Kingdom with grace and beauty. I will see you fulfilled and whole. I will see you, now and forever, as wholly and completely mine own.

My prayer:

What a WEEK God! We had joy, peace, fun, beauty, insight, intense pain, surgery, and miracles! Who ever said that living a life for God was boring? I need to talk to them and explain a thing or two! :)

Thank you for everything this week God. I pray for your continued guidance and healing. I pray for  your strength in me. 

Thank you for being my God and for loving me.

What God Said Tonight:

I believe I mentioned that you would gain great insight this week. I know it was dramatic but it was time to make some big leaps forward. 

Your trust and attention in this time was just what we needed. Rest and see your wholeness rise up in me. 

I love you.

Rest and revelation...

My prayer:

Well I made it through this day God, thanks to you. It was a tough one. The best part is, we are now on vacation time! 

I pray and ask for your traveling mercies. Guide us, direct us, be with us, show us what you want us to see. I ask for a continued hedge of protection around us. 

You are my everything. Can't wait to spend some quiet time with you away from the craziness of the world. LOVE YOU!!

What God Said Tonight:

This is a time of rest but it is also a time of revelation. I want to show you somethings and teach you somethings during this time. 

Don't forget to take some time each day to just listen. I will be speaking, I will be teaching. There is much that I have to show you to prepare you for the next season. 

So, rest, have fun, but take time for me each day. Love you.

Seeking God at all times...

My prayer:

Thank you for guiding my steps, thoughts and words today God. I think you kept me from making what could have been big mistakes. Life is so much easier when I listen to you. I hope I get better at always listening and following your guidance. 

Sometimes, throughout the day, I don't realize it is you speaking until it is too late. Other times, I think I hear you but I doubt and miss the opportunity. When I take the time, like now, to really listen, everything seems so much clearer. I would like that same level of clarity throughout the day.

I pray and ask for better discernment in the day-to-day moments of each day. 

What God Said Tonight:

I speak to you in the quiet times and I speak to you in the roar of life. My voice does not change. Your listening changes. 

Learning to diligent seek me at all times is not easy. It is a discipline. It takes effort and commitment. I can show you. I can show you the surrender needed. It is not easy. But I can show you. If you want. 

The surrender is a place of vulnerability and trust. It is also a place of certainty and peace. Dependence on me is strength. Surrender to me is freedom. Loving me is joy. 

I am here, speaking, all of the time. Surrender to my voice and trust me to be God,
