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.

Victory...


My prayer:

I am having trouble not worrying about the news of today God. There is a big part of me that knows, regardless of what it means, that you will take care of it and take care of me. There is also a small yet relentless part of me that is afraid and worried about what this latest thing means.

God, I lay my worry at your feet and choose to trust you in this and in all things.

What God Said Tonight:

There is great celebration in our future, our near future. There is great rejoicing. There is great praise. 

There is also the challenges that come before the rejoicing, the celebration, the praise. Every victory requires a battle. The battle is not yours to fight but you will walk through it. 

Hold my hand. Trust my power and my will and my love. You are my precious daughter and I will see you through.

Be with God...


My prayer:

Thank you for all of your help today God. This could have been a miserable day with all that happened but you kept me focused on what I could do and helped me let go of what I couldn't do. In the end, it felt like a pretty productive day.

I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU IN MY LIFE!!! How do people live this life without your help?

What God Said Tonight:

I have brought you to this time and this place tonight, not for any purpose or accomplishment that is needed but I have brought you here to dwell with me. To just be with me. I don't need your praise or your worship. I don't need your prayers or your needs to be expressed to me. I know what you need and I have already provided. I know your love for me and I have already rejoiced in it. 

Tonight, I just want to be with you, in quietness and peace. Stay a moment with me. I love you.

Season of the rock...


My prayer:

Awesome God. I got an email today from someone who has been following this blog for 7 years. I don't stop to think about it too much but the number of people you reach on this blog every day is pretty stunning. 

They said something that is so true, they called it my "prayers/conversations" with you and that is really what it is, conversations. 

I am not sure when I learned that I could have conversations with you, maybe I always have? I don't know why I first believed that if I would listen, you would talk, but, whatever made me try the first time, thank you for that. My life would not be worth much if I could not hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

I have often used the symbolism of a rock in explaining things to you. This season of your life will be the season of the rock. 

When you look back on it,that is how you will think of it. Not only the strength of a rock but also the undeniable fact that I can move rocks, I can move mountains and that your faith can move mountains. 

This season is about moving the unmovable and seeing the impossible happen. 

Rejoice in the season of the rock. When it is done, you will have a memorial of this time and rocks will have new symbolism and meaning in your life.

Carved in the palm of His hand...


My prayer:

Guidance, direction, and help God. Maybe even a little perspective. These are all things I am in need of tonight.

I had such peace earlier today God. I felt 100% sure that everything would work out. Then, after a day of more disappointments, I find myself losing hold of the peace. 

I know that I can't look at circumstances. I know that you have our best in mind at all times. I just would love to have a little insight into how all of that is going to work out in this particular situation. 

I can almost hear you, it isn't faith if you don't have to believe. It isn't faith if you know how it will turn out. 

If that is the answer God, I pray for help to accept it. I pray for the peace that I had earlier today return but be more lasting.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I have you carved in the palm of my hand. I don't have you sitting there. I do't have you drawn there. I have you carved. 

You are so important to me that I wanted you carved into me so that we are never apart. I can never forget you because you are carved into me. I can never turn my back on you because you are a part of me and I am a part of you. 

Your confidence does not have to be in the world. Your confidence doesn't have to be in yourself. Your confidence can be in me and what you mean to me. 

I love you now and forever my child. Go to sleep and wake up ready to go tomorrow. I will refresh and rejuvenate you.

God's favor...


My prayer:

You make me prosper God. You make me win. No matter what the circumstances. No matter how much is against me, you make me win. I stand in awe of your favor in my life. You are so very good! Thank you for doing it again!

What God Said Tonight:

I love you. You are the head and not the tail. When I make you prosper, I am only ensuring you are in your God given place. 

I made you to be a prince. I made you to be a priest. I made you to be my child and you have become the apple of my eye. 

My blessings are forever and my provision will not end. I am yours, now and forever.

Today was not a waste...


My prayer:

There are the things I know to do, relax, trust you, live in  your peace, and then there are the things I did today, chase my tail and get no where. I guess I at least wore myself out running all around. That helped bring down the stress level but it did not accomplish anything else. 

God, I pray for help living the way I know to live vs. the way I have been living. I choose to trust you, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

Today was not wasted. Today helped convince you that you do trust me. Today was a necessary piece of the journey. 

Do not disparage those things that move you forward, even if they do not get you to your goal. Progress is more important than the goal and the journey is more important than the destination. 

Your character, your heart, your spirit, these are the things that are important to me and these were all strengthened today. I love you and I will never stop.

Worry...


My prayer:

I am hanging in there God, mostly. I let the "not knowing" and the complete inability to control any of this thing get to me a bit today. I spent most of the day just reminding myself that you are in charge. 

That makes it sound good but the reason I spent most of the day reminding myself is that I needed the reminding. I am amazed at how little time it takes for my mind to slip into worry. 

I pray for your sustained peace in me and, as always, your will be done.

What God Said Tonight:

Worry is a transient distraction that does not even warrant your briefest attention. Your life, your testimony is so  much bigger than any worry. 

I have brought you through. I will bring you through. I am bringing you through. 

Ride in the cradle of my arms as we stride through this season together. I love you so much and this is one more journey in a life full of testimony.

Your voice...


My prayer:

I am a ball of stress God. I was doing a decent job of trusting and leaning on your peace when just one area of my life was in upheaval but now, with two areas going nuts, I am not doing very well with it all. 

Awesome God, I hand it all to you tonight. It is too heavy for me.

What God Said Tonight:

Alignment is not always necessary. You are looking for everyone to come into one voice and this is not the season for that. This is a season for each voice to be heard.
I know the conflict and the cacophony of voices is hard for you. You long for peace and order but this time is necessary. I need people in your life to challenge each other and find out if their voice is worth hearing. 

Trust that I am in charge and that I know what I am doing. 

Get your voice, your peace, your stability from me and my presence in you. When you know yourself, you don't have to work so hard to make sure other people know it too. Rest in me and who I know you to be. and, as always, remember this season will not last forever.

WIsdom...


My prayer:

You are so generous God. Thank you for teaching me in every moment. I am seeing your revelation in the smallest of moments right now and I LOVE IT! Teach me Lord. I love learning from you. I pray that this be a time of revelation for all of your people. We need your wisdom and knowledge in our lives.

What God Said Tonight:

The danger of knowledge is that it can make you more confident in your knowledge than you are in my ability to direct your destiny. My knowledge and wisdom for you is for a season. I will feed you until you are full but not beyond that. Anything more is gluttony and results in waste. 

Even in this, trust me. I will give you everything you need, when you need it.

Walking in faith...


My prayer:

This is an interesting journey of faith we are on God. 

Thank you for the frequent reassurance and for your peace. Part of me wants to fast forward to the other side of the journey but even as I say that, I can hear your voice telling me to not miss out on the journey itself. That I should appreciate the excitement and growth of this time as it will not always be like this. 

Thank you God for all that you are and all that you do. I love you SO MUCH!

What God Said Tonight:

Peace is not a static thing. Peace swells and grows when needed and it ebbs when it is not needed. My peace, my perfect peace, also has perfect timing. 

Relax in to the ebb and flow of my peace and know that you will always be prepared. 

I love you too my sweet child. 

Walking in faith is nothing more than walking hand in hand with me. There is no safer place in the world.

Pressure and beauty...


My prayer:

So much is happening God but you are putting everything into place. I am in awe of how you are working it all out. 

Thank you for this journey. Thank you for the new level of trust. Thank you for being you and loving me.

What God Said Tonight:

Pressure brings out beauty. When coal is compressed, it becomes a diamond. Your pressure. The pressure you are under, is not meant to harm you and is not meant to stop you. It is only meant to perfect you and allow you to become more beautiful and your perfected self. 

Trust me to know how much you can take. I truly will not give you more than you can take but know that you can take more than you think. 

When it gets hard, lean on me. When the worry creeps in, lean on me. When you don't know what to do next, lean on me. I am here and will walk every step with you.

Changing like a rock...


My prayer:

Awesome God. I asked for a new life, a new phase, a new season. You are giving it to me and it is wonderful. It is also pretty scary. 

Help me God to walk in faith. I know in my heart and in my head that this is your will. You have told me in so many ways. I also know that when your will is done, nothing can stand in the way. 

I also know, there are many times in my life where I thought I knew your will, only to find out that I was COMPLETELY wrong. That is when my head starts spinning and dwelling on thoughts and worries. What if I am getting this completely wrong?

You have said it is ok to dream and that you will give me the desires of my heart but a part of me is very afraid to do that. This dream is a biggy and if it does not work out, the disappointment could be crushing.

Guide my thoughts and my actions God. Fill me with your peace. Fill me with your presence. Everything is better in your presence. 

What God Said Tonight:

Rocks, mountains, they seem so permanent but even in their stability and strength, they are changing. You cannot always see the change but it is there. 

Like a rock, your life has been slowly changing. It has not been obvious but it has been happening on the inside and just like the rock, the change is about to break free and the changes will be obvious. It will be beautiful. It will be dramatic. 

One thing that will never change. I will always love you and I will always be with you. 

Lets keep moving toward the change to come, not with fear but with assurance that it is something you have been preparing for. The hard outer shell is about to slide off and reveal the beauty within. My dear, do not dread the change but celebrate in its beauty. 

I love you now and forever.

Who is responsible...


My prayer:

Just when I think I know what you are doing, the direction that you are taking me, surprise! We head a different direction. Life in your will is never boring God! Which is good for me. You know how I hate being bored. 

I pray, above everything else, your will is done God.

What God Said Tonight:

Where you are headed is taken care of. Your focus should be on where you are today and loving everyone in your path. 

I have tomorrow taken care of. You are responsible for making the most of today. 

I love you. I have such amazing blessings for you. Don't miss the blessings of today because you are focused on tomorrow.
