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.

Don't be oblivious...

My prayer:

Another long day, but not a bad one. I am just kind of worn out. When I look at this day I kind of think, "meh". Nothing great but nothing terrible. With the world we live in, any day without something terrible is a pretty good day. 

Wow, that sounded really pessimistic. Maybe I am too tired to talk and I should stop and listen. I bet anything you have to say will be a million times better and more encouraging than me. 

Thanks for being you and thanks for being my friend.

What God Said Today:

Here and now are important because you have been planted. Some of my kids, I need mobile and some I need planted. You have had your seasons of mobility but your season now is being planted. We will travel the world again someday but today is about here and now. 

Do not close your eyes and ears to all that is going on around you. It is important and valuable. Some will inspire you and some will depress you. Some will require a response and some will require you to stay put. As always, wait and listen for my voice. I will guide you in this place an this time. 

Having said that, it is only true because you choose to give your life to me. If you make another choice, you can pick your place and time but you also open yourself up to everything that wants you destroyed.

My prayer:

Today ended up a lot more fun than I expected it to! Thanks for the exciting ending to a rather mundane day.  One of many favorite things about you is that you always find ways to bring little bubbles of joy into my life even in the tough times. You are such an amazing gift in my life. 

I was about to pray that we live out every day through eternity together, but you have already promised me that. SO, I will just thank you for your promise to live out every day together with me throughout eternity!

What God Said Tonight:

You are in a growth and harvest season. Your life is growing thick and green and is getting ready for harvest. 

All that you have learned and all that you have had healed has prepared you and grown you into a maturity that I can use in the Kingdom. Your brothers, your sisters, will reap of your experience and growth. Your maturity will be used to grow the lives of others. 

Keep growing. It is worth it.

Don't give up on love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am not looking for any life lesson or even any blessing tonight. I really just want to be with you, feel your presence, and hear your voice. 

What God Said Tonight:

With all things equal in the world, there is one thing that will always transcend. Love. Our love, the love you have with others. 

Reach for the love, seek it out, don't give up on it. 

Sunday, November 26, 2017


My prayer:

I am hoping for good things this week God. I am hoping for opportunities. I am hoping for joy. I am hoping. 

And, if none of that happens, I still have you and that is enough. You are the source of every good thing so as long as I have you in my life, I have hope. 

What God Said Tonight:

Hope is good. Hope is the internal understanding that where you are, who you are, and what you have is less than what I intended for you. Hope is the recognition that I have more for you. Hope is the fuel that makes tomorrow possible. 

Place your hope in me and you will never be disappointed. In the end, you have everything that I planned for you. Live in the hope and understanding that I have more for you.

Hidden fruit...

My prayer:

What a great and restful day God. Thank you for slowing down my world today. And here tonight in your presence, in your peace, this is a slice of heaven.

I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

A rocky desert may see;m to have no life in it but if you look closely, life is abundant but not apparent.

Sometimes, that is true of your life. You may not see the life and the fruit of your life apparent but it is there. The hidden life is no less important than the showy apparent life. The scorpion is no less impressive tan the lion.

I love you. Recognize all of the fruit in your life.

Pockets of joy...

My prayer:

I am thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving evening God. What a great holiday this is. A day set aside just to be thankful and be with people you love. I really love this day. We have had a lot of great Thanksgivings together. The years of the huge outreaches downtown feeding thousands of people were amazing. But, these quiet ones are pretty great too. 

Thank you for providing for me God. Thank you for the privilege and blessings you have given me. Thank you for teaching me and talking to me. Thank you for choosing me. Thank you most of all for loving me. Thank you for the millions of things you do every day for me, most of which I have no idea you have done.

What God Said Tonight:

Doves perched on a phone line waiting for the breeze to come. Sun setting and turning the sky orange. Joy can be found in the smallest things when you are looking for it. 

I will always leave little surprise pockets of joy waiting in your life. Remember to look for them. Remember to enjoy them. They are for you. 

This life can be so very hard. Find the pockets of joy to ease the pain. I love you and I am always always here for you.

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


My prayer:

I have lots of questions and thoughts running through my mind tonight God. But, I am kind of tired of me. I am really just interested in hearing you. I love you. I am amazed by you. You are my everything.

What God Said Tonight:

Patterns and pictures are all around you. Sometimes you think that they mean something and they do not. Other times, you do not recognize the pattern, but it is there. Your wisdom will not get you very far. My wisdom will lead you to great and wondrous places. 

Lean on my wisdom, not your own and you will not go wrong. 

You know me. You have read and heard my words for so many years. Know my voice now as I say, this is not an ending. This is a beginning. This was priming the pump for a great outpouring. 

This is in my purpose and my wisdom will walk you through it. I love you, now and forever.

Monday, November 20, 2017


My prayer:

Well, I am not sure how to feel about today. I got some news that was unexpected and did not fall in line with what I had thought you had told me. At first, I was pretty disappointed but after a little bit, I am not sure why, but I knew it would be ok. Somehow, I had total peace that it would be ok and that while the denial seemed definitive, the truth is I don't know everything that happened today, nor do I know what will happen tomorrow. 

I am grateful for your peace that truly passes all understanding. To know, down to my most inner being, that you are and will take care of me, is such an amazing comfort. Thank you.

What God Said Tonight:

Wait for tomorrow. Wait and see what I will do. Your steps are ordered by me and you walked in each one of them perfectly. It does not make sense now but it will someday very soon. I will reveal all to you as soon as I can. 

Thank you for trusting my will in your life. You will see great favor and joy. I love you.

Holiday decorating...

My prayer:

A weekend of celebration, fun, and hope...I am exhausted! But happy! Awesome God, as we go into this week of Thanksgiving, I pray that we all remember the multitude of blessings that you have showered on our lives. There are struggles, absolutely, but there is joy, peace, love and you. You are the greatest blessing of all. 

What God Said Tonight:

Your life is being frosted with sparkle and shine right now. Just in time for the holidays, I am decorating your soul with the joy of me. 

I love you and my love will sparkle on you, drawing people to me and filling your life with abundance. Look up at the sparkles falling down on you. Like the most beautiful snow on a quiet mountain top. 

I love you.

God's shadow...

My prayer:

Well, I did it. I stepped out and took a chance. Now, the waiting. I feel such a peace about this. I am excited and hopeful but not nervous at all. This is potentially such a big change, I would think I would be nervous, but I am not. That makes me think even more that this is your plan. I always have peace when I am in your will.

Thank you God, for, well, everything.

What God Said Tonight:

Simple, easy, one step at a time. That is the flow of your life in me. 

We have challenges and we have struggles but when it is time for change, when you are building for a future, the steps are easy and the burden is light. 

Enjoy this season. It is precious and wonderful. I have talked to you so often of the great things we have yet to do Those things are closer today than ever. 

Walk in the ease of my shadow.

Time to move...

My prayer:

Another long week but an inspiring evening God. Thank you for showing me a potential open door. This is going to take some real courage to step in this door. I pray that if it is the right door, one that you have opened, keep it open for me. If it is not, please close it quickly so I don't waste time on it or cause any damage. 

I am excited! Funny how one idea, one step forward can take me from burned out and exhausted to wide awake and almost giddy with anticipation! It's good to know I can still feel that way!

What God Said Tonight:

It is for you. Move forward, take the step, take the chance. I love you and I am with you. It is time to move.

Use what you have...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am feeling a real pull to do something significant about hunger but I am not sure what the next step is. I pray for your guidance and opportunity. Show me where I can make a difference. If there is something I can do to help, show me.

What God Said Tonight:

There are resources at your finger tips. Use what you have. 

I will provide opportunities to the willing. Use what you have. Do what is in front of you. 

My guiding hand is with you, as always. I will make you prosper, even in this. 

Feed my sheep was a figurative instruction but also a practical instruction.

New beginning...

My prayer:

Today was a day for starting from scratch. Nothing really made sense. Ideas, projects, things that I had started and made perfect sense yesterday, when I looked at them today, all I could think was, "what was I thinking?!" 

SO, I started a bunch of things over today. I hope that was the right move. I hope that I won't wake up tomorrow and think, "That was stupid. It was better the first way." Sometimes listening to my gut gets me in trouble.

Huh, don't know why I just shared all of that with you. Thanks for listening to me no matter what I am droning on about. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

I am all about new beginnings I will tear an entire generation of people down to give you a fresh start. I don't like doing it. Starting fresh always has consequences and sometimes those consequences are really hard. Sometimes you get stuck in the middle. 

I will not see you broken or left behind. 

Rejoice in your new beginning and see it from the joy that it is. 

Sunday, November 12, 2017


My prayer:

Tomorrow is Monday again already! I am not ready to go back to work. At least I know you go with me. You are amazing and I love how you work in my life. Maybe that is the way to think about it. Going back to work tomorrow gives you opportunities to show off your awesomeness. 

Let me be a reflection of you on this earth God. Let people see you instead of me when they look at me, when they talk to me. God, let you love flow out of me like a fire hose. 

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

You life is good. It is going to go well tomorrow. 

I do not tell you these things as prophecies. I tell them to you as fact. 

I am yours and you are mine and I will make you prosper, wherever you are. Just like Joseph. I even made him prosper as a slave. No matter where you are at or what is coming against you, I can and will make you prosper. 

I love you too.

Saturday, November 11, 2017


My prayer:

It's done. I am exhausted but it is done. Thanks for all of your help this week God. As crazy and exhausting as this week was, there is satisfaction in getting it done. There is satisfaction in seeing your favor and help in my life, again. And today was just plain fun!

I love you. I am grateful for you. I ask for rest and supernatural rejuvenation for tomorrow.

What God Said Tonight:

A time, a moment in time, may seem inconsequential at that moment but some of those moments are actually changing the world. Today, was one of those moments.

The significance of today will not be seen for many years but it was there. Realize that while you live your life, day to day, there are bigger plans, bigger waves and movements that go out and effect the world, through your tiniest actions.

You don't see it. You don't have to. But it is truth and it is happening. Your significance in this lifetime is measured by what I am doing through you. It is magnificent. I love you.

Blessing of the missing...

My prayer:

Loooonnnggggg days and short nights. I had no idea what this week had in store for me! 

Thank you for all of the help, peace, and favor you have shown me. I ask for your continued help and favor. Looking at what is left to be done, it does not seem possible. But, how many times have you done the impossible in my life? I have lost count. 

I love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Fields sweeping across the horizon with nothing to show but wide open space. Miles of nothing but it can be one of the most beautiful sites in the world. 

Sometimes, the beauty and the joy and the blessing in life is more about what is not there than it is about what is there. Enjoy the times where there is not the intense battle. Enjoy the day when your life is not threatened. Enjoy the day when the food has not gone missing and the day when your loved ones are whole and well, without sickness and without pain. 

Enjoy the blessing of the things that are missing.

You are mine. I am yours...

My prayer:

in no mood to talk but always happy to listen. What is on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:

I am your Lord and I am your guide. I teach you how to live this life. I love you more than you will ever know. There's very little left to know. 

You are mine. I am yours. 

I love you, more and more. There is nothing that will defeat you. There is nothing that can crush you. 

You are mine. I am yours. 

Together we fight the world. Today, tomorrow and always, my love is never changing. I will take you on a journey and I will never let go. 

You are mine. I am yours.

The meaning of life...

My prayer:

Back to work tomorrow. Monday has come awfully fast. Guide my steps God. Help me to see the opportunities to be a blessing. Give me wisdom and peace to meet the challenges of the week. And above all, walk through it with me and have your will accomplished in my life. 

I love you. Keep me surrounded in your presence and your love.

What God Said Tonight:

We are never sorry for the people we love. We are only sorry for those we fail to love enough. Your love, my love, all love is what heals and mends this world. It is the fuel and power for everything good. 

Finding a way to love those around you is always worthwhile. It is the most important thing you will ever do. 

Some people are always asking, "What is the meaning of life?" Well, it is simple. Love. Your life's purpose is to love and be loved. It is what I created you for. Everything you do that teaches you to love and be loved is good. Every thing you do that takes you from a place of love is not good.

I am raising you to love. I am teaching you to love and be loved. One day, not yet but one day, you will be so full of love that you will not be able to do anything but love. When you are not able to speak without speaking in love, not able to think without thinking in love, not able to move without moving in love, when that day comes, you will be fully whole and at peace with everyone and everything. It is a glorious day.

Everything is connected...

My prayer:

What a strange combination of blessings and well, maybe not curses but definitely things not going as planned. Thanks first for the opportunities to be a blessing to some folks today. You know how important that is to me and if I can at least have one moment to look at where you let me be a blessing, that can be enough. Today had several, so, bonus!

Then there was the series of things that went wrong. But, even as I say that, I can already see how you could work them each out to be a blessing for me. So, instead of whining about it, how about I just wait it out and see what you do? 

I had a fresh reminder today of how grateful I am for our relationship God. I love that it has gotten to the point where I know I can tell you anything, literally anything and not only will you not stop loving me, you will help me with it. No matter how rotten it is. That has not always been the case. There was a long period of time that I thought if I was not good enough, you wouldn't love me. That, if you knew what I really thought, you would turn your back on me. 

That seems silly now. Now that I understand your love better and know you better, I know that is simply not possible. Thank you for letting me know you like that.

What God Said Tonight:

Wait until tomorrow to see the true fruit of today. I do not work in isolation. Everything, literally everything is connected. 

I will achieve our purpose but most likely not in the way you are expecting. 

Friday, November 3, 2017

God love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I realized something today. You almost always give me what I ask for but sometimes it is so subtle or it takes awhile and I don't even realize what you have done until later. Several years ago, I remember saying I would like to spend more time in a particular area but I didn't have any reason to go there so I forgot about it. Now, you have moved the salon right in the middle of the neighborhood so I will be going there all the time. 

Such a small thing but when I realized it, I started thinking of all of the other things like that. When I need more business, I ask, you provide. Sometimes before I even get done asking! Other things take longer, but you always come through for me. 

Don't get me wrong, it is not like you are some giant Santa Claus or ATM. But you bless me, over and over and over again. Thank you for every blessing, even those that I didn't recognize at the time.

What God Said Tonight:

A kiss and hug is a reflection of love. The depth of love is felt through action. 

I, not living in a body on earth right now, don't have the luxury of giving you a hug and a kiss in the physical realm. I do have the ability to rain blessings on you. I do have the ability to show you favor in every situation. I have the ability to remind you of my love each day. 

See my love in the blessings of your life. Feel my love through the struggles of your life. Live in my love always.

Waiting and hope...

My prayer:

It has been a week of gaining new perspective. Seeing life and me from different angles. Thank you God for new perspective! It is amazing how different everything can look when you look through someone else's eyes. 

You are wonderful and always giving me what I need, even when I don't know what to ask for.

What God Said Tonight:

Waiting a day, waiting a lifetime. The;y can seem like the same thing. In the waiting you never know when it will end so all waiting seems as though it will go on forever. 

It won't. As a matter of fact, I can promise you that all waiting will end, sooner or later. 

Your times of waiting are valuable. They give you time to get ready and they give you a sense of anticipation and hope. 

Hope is one of my greatest gifts I give to you. There is healing, there is salvation, there is peace, and there is hope. Hope is the fire that drives you. Never let go of your hope in me. I love you.
