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.

Good night...

My prayer:

Awesome God. What a blessing and gift you are! What a blessing and gift this week has been. You have filled my senses with beauty and my heart with peace. WONDERFUL GOD!

What God Said Tonight:

Tonight is not the night for strife and war. Tonight is the night to rest in the peace that I have for you. Tonight is not the night for deep revelations. Tonight is the night to rest in the assurance that I will guide you through each and every challenge that life throws at you.

Tonight is the night for you and I to enjoy all that life has been and all that it can be. Tonight is a good night.

Surviving the storm...

My prayer:

Thank you for your favor today God. Thank you for the moments of clarity, showing me how you have grown me over the last 5 years. Thank you for caring enough about me to help me be better, every day. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

There are always going to be stormy seas in your life. The sky will look dark and ominous. The waves will splash up over the edges of your boat. But I am in the boat with you.

How can a boat with the creator of all things in it, sink? As long as we are together, you will have the power and the ability to overcome any storm.

There is no storm greater than my power and there is no storm greater than my love for you.

Vacation with God...

My prayer:

I made it God! With your help I made it all the way to vacation time! I am very ready for the break, for time with you and mom, time to disconnect from the craziness of everyday life.

I am so very blessed to have the luxury to take time off. So many people do not have that luxury. Thank you for blessing me so much that I can do this!

What God Said Tonight:

I have every intention of seeing you blessed now and forever. I have a plan and it involves blessing you abundantly. I have chosen you and as my chosen, you are blessed. I have much more to show you and give you. I have much more for you.

I will be with you on this trip in a more real and more intimate way than you have known me in the past. This trip is for rest, yes, but this trip is also for us. I love you

Surgical healing...

My prayer:

Hi God. You know when Paul wrote about how he found himself doing the very thing he hated...well I can relate. I feel like I kind of failed at life today. I was not the person you made me to be. I did not respond in love. I guess it wasn't all day but in some key moments, I am not proud of my behavior.

God, I apologize for getting it so wrong today. With your help, I will do better tomorrow.

What God Said Tonight:

A tree has many branches. Not all of them are meant to remain. When you trim a tree, if done correctly, the tree grows larger and becomes healthier.

Days like today, moments like today's moments, help us to see what needs to be trimmed away. I can and will remove the pain that caused the aberration today. You will see great differences tomorrow.

You will find a way to love in the exact situation that left you for a loop today. I will increase your capacity to love. I will heal the harm that decreased it in the first place. It is time for a little surgical healing.

I love you.

True love...

My prayer:

I am mainly grateful tonight that you love me no matter what.

You love me when I get something right and you love me when I get something wrong. You love me when I do good and you still love me when I mess up.

Your love, so big, so amazing, so healing and it is free, completely unearned. I mean, that is CRAZY WONDERFUL! Thank you for loving me no matter what.

What God Said Tonight:

True love is not reliant on conditions and it is not reliant on circumstances. True love, the love I have for you, is complete on its own. True love is a reflection of the heart of the one loving.

Since I am love, my true love reflected on you is complete and without error or lack. I love you in every sense of the word.

I pour my love upon you like a victory bucket at a game. I pour my love on you like a barrel of olive oil tipped over you head. My love will permeate every corner and wrinkle of you life. Soon, you will be filled.

The Father's love...

My prayer:

I cannot let today pass without giving honor, praise and thanks to the greatest Father that ever was or ever will be. You care, kindness, teaching, guidance, protection and love surpasses my wildest dreams. I am so grateful for you in my life and I am beyond grateful that you will always be with me. Words are never enough but I love you Daddy!

What God Said Tonight:

I love you too. You are my joy and the object of my affection. You are the apple of my eye. You are all that I have ever hoped for.

I love you my child, now and forever.

Special favor...

My prayer:

Sweet Father. Another day where you took care of everything. In the middle of chaos, you worked everything out perfectly. Living with you as the head of my life is pretty amazing. Thank you for being so wonderful and for taking care of me. What is on your mind tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

Special favor. You have gained special favor with me and with men. It is through the sonship that you gained when my son died for you. You became the newly chosen people. You became royalty. You became the priesthood.

I make sure you succeed because as my child, you must succeed. Your success is evidence of my value as a Father.

I love you. I love to bless you. I love to set you in the place of favor.  Your humble heart does well in that place.

Show off God...

My prayer:

Today was a mishmash of good and annoying experiences. I choose to stay focused on the good things, it sure feels better. Now, I am just spent. Mind body and spirit are all saying, we are done!

What God Said Tonight:

I have divine appointments in your life and today was chocked full of them. Remember that every interaction you have is an opportunity to show people my heart.  From the great old friend to the woman who annoyed you at the grocery store, each one is a chance to show me off.

Don't get weary...

My prayer:

Thank you God for your unusual favor and timing today! The train was running late for everyone else, but showed up just when I walked up to the station. So many little things like that today God where you blessed me in the middle of what was a mess for everyone else.

I bet there is a message in that!

I love you God. Thank you for always taking such great care of me.

What God Said Tonight:

I have steps ordered and set aside for you. I have a path picked out that is just for you. You who like to travel the less traveled path will find that my path for your life is as unique as you could possibly hope.

I have not abandoned you. You may feel like your path has stalled out but I have your best interest in mind, even in the waiting.

Don't get weary in your well doing. Don't get weary in your hope. I haven't given up on your dream.

external image Victory.jpg

My prayer:

Today you gave me some incredible news of your miraculous healing which was AMAZING. Thank you so much for healing my friend from lung cancer! Within a month we went from the doctors saying "stage 4, get your things in order" to a clean CAT scan with no signs of a tumor! YOU ARE AMAZING GOD!

And, surrounding that amazing news was a day filled with nastiness, hassle, strife and stress. I was really getting down about it earlier but as I sit here tonight and think about it, all that other crud was likely just satan trying to distract me from your amazing miracle. What you did was so GOOD, he had to throw whatever BAD he could find at me so I would be tempted to forget your goodness. That sounds like him.

God, I apologize if I let satan take one second of my worship of you. I apologize that I let him steal the praise report, even for a moment. Today was an amazing day when I got to hear that someone I love is going to live a full and healthy life free of lung cancer. Nothing else matters.

What God Said Tonight:

I heard you complaining today but I heard your praise. I saw you frustrated today but I also saw you reaching to me for help.

Satan can throw whatever he wants to at you. You stay focused on me and I will bring you through.

I never expect you to be perfect. I never expect you to not get down, depressed, stressed, angry...on the contrary. I made you. I made you with the capacity for all of those reactions. I made you to fully experience life. I made you filled with joy.

So, while you struggle against the enemy, as long as you turn toward me and not away from me, he can never win.

You are mine and I hear your voice, no matter what is going on. Call me and I will be there with you. Call on me and I will change the atmosphere and the situation. I love you.

Selective memory...


My prayer:

Another wonderful day God. THANK YOU!

I do want to talk a bit more about the topic we started discussing on the hike. I am still confused about how selective my memory can be. When it comes to bad memories, painful memories, I fight every day to overcome them. I fight every day to not allow them to ruin my present and future. I fight every day to allow you to heal me. And still, they pop back up at the worst times. They are relentless.

The crazy thing is the exact opposite is true with good memories. Even something as simple as working out. When I am in the routine of it, I love it. It feels fantastic, my stress level is down, I feel good about myself. But let me get out of the habit and the memory of how good it is fades. I start to think, well it wasn't that good. I can put it off another day.

It is even true of those most amazing moments with you. You have shown me so many amazing things. You have given me experiences of your presence that are truly miraculous. But those times, I have to work at remembering those times. I have to bring them back to my remembrance and even then, I have to remind myself that, yes, it really was that amazing and wonderful.

I would really like it to be the other way around. It would be so much better if the good memories were more persistent and relentless and the bad memories faded in detail and significance. Can we do that God?

What God Said Tonight:

What do you think it is about the bad memories that keeps them around? You have an enemy that is constantly reminding you of them. You have a voice whispering in your ear every mistake, every hurt, every thing he can think of to accuse you. It is who he is and what he does.

The good memories. The times you and I have, I don't want to have to constantly remind you of them. I don't want them to lose their significance by constant repetition.

I also don't want you to get so tied up in those memories that you miss what I am doing for you right now. I am your comforter and your helper. I will remind you of the good when you need it but I really want to focus more time and effort on the good of right now. I want to focus on the good we will have tomorrow.

I don't see great benefit in getting stuck in the past, good or bad. I love you and we have a lot of good memories yet to make.

You are welcome. I love to bless you!

Moving Toward the Truth | Leadership Freak

My prayer:

I am consistently amazed at how easily people misunderstand each other. It seems that we all have this filter of what we expect to hear or want to hear and that colors everything.

I wonder what it would be like if we could hear and understand what the other person is really saying instead of our own interpretation of what they are saying. I bet we would have less arguments, hatred and war.

I ask God for increased discernment to hear and understand what people actually mean when they are talking to me and not just my interpretation, filtered through my scars.

What God Said Tonight:

I have given you my heart and my Spirit. Listen with them and not just your ears and you will hear and understand the truth in every situation.

I have no interest in seeing you deceived. I am made of truth, I am truth and there is no deception in me. Use me as your filter and deception must flee so that all that remains is truth.

I have much planned that requires your ability to see and discern the truth. Your tools are ready to use.

Safe in the storm...

My prayer:

There was a lot of nastiness to deal with today but when I look back on it, you were so good to me and brought me through it all with no permanent damage. That is pretty awesome! Thanks for being my refuge in the storm today God.

What God Said Tonight:

I have yet to see the storm that can shake my children when they are holding on to me. The wind may blow and the rain may fall but you will be safe.

That is what I have been showing you with these storms all week. You see them build, they look so ominous and yet, you have made every ride home with not even a drop hitting you,

I want you to see and to trust that I will keep you safe in every storm. I don't need you to look to the horizon to see the next frightening thing coming your way. I only need you to look at me and I will take care of the rest.

I love you. Don't take your eyes off of me.

Destined for greatness...

... fact that David's with gaps in their teeth are destined for greatness

My prayer:

Sweet Father, I am worn out tonight. I just really want to hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

You are destined for greatness. Never forget that.

Nothing special...


My Prayer:

You are wonderful and amazing and everything to me God. My life did not really begin until you were in it. Everything I have, everything I am and everything I know is only good because of you. Thank you for choosing me!

What God Said Tonight:

Today is one day in eternity.  It does not determine the future and it is not a result of the past, entirely. It is just a day.

Sometimes life just is. Sometimes, there is no greater significance.

But, even in those days when nothing special seems to happen, even in those days, I will always give you a nugget. I will always give you a little show of joy, love, miracles. I have daily gifts set up for you.

Learning to trust...

Learning not to trust each other in America, and not to trust America ...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I have been thinking a lot lately about the trouble I have with trusting people. With a few exceptions, I really do expect most people will try to hurt me in some way. I am always really happy when they don't, but underlying everything is the knowledge that they could and probably will. That means I live most of my life in defense mode, ready to protect, ready to fight.

I think this has gotten better over the years but not because I learned to trust people but I did learn to trust you. I learned to trust that no matter what people do to me, you will take care of me. You will turn it for my good. That was a big step for me and has really changed my life.

But now, I am starting to think that I am missing out on some pretty important things due to my lack of trust. We all know where the lack of trust comes from and I have done absolutely all I know to get healed from those hurts, but it has not been enough.

I ask for your help to heal what I cannot. I ask for you help to teach me how to trust. I ask for your STRONG protection in the process.

What God Said Tonight:

I have shown you a life of color from a life of black and white. I am now going to take that color to ultra HD.

Your trust in me is well founded. Trust me now to know how far to take you. Trust me now to surround you with people who can hurt you but wont. Trust me to show you the spectrum of possibilities when you allow true trust and relationship to flourish in your life.

Keep your eyes and your heart open and see what I will do for you.

Father God...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Today was one of those days that did not go the way I planned, was fairly annoying; however, I can already see how you are using it for my good.

You take such good care of me. Thank you for always showing me the potential problems in my life before they become to massive. Thank you for providing solutions. Thank you for being my Father.

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Taking care of you is my job and my privilege.

I love you. I made you in my image. I have hopes and dreams for you that far outshine those that you have thought of for yourself.

With your trust, I can take you there.

I love you and I will always take care of you. I will always give you a heads up when something needs to change. I love you to much to see life sideswipe you.

I am forever and always on your side. I love you.

A prayer away...

Follow these tips when praying along with children.

My prayer:

Some real highs and lows today God. For a change though, I am not in the mood to talk about it. I really just want some time in your presence, resting in your love. That sounds better than anything right now.

What God Said Tonight:

Come here. I am always here for you. When you need direction, when you need help and especially when you need love. I am never more than a prayer way.

Lean on me and rest.
