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.

Yes!!!


My prayer:

It seems like you are trying to tell me something God. Something about what you want to do next...HALLELUJAH!!!! My answer is YES. Whatever you want to do. Whenever you want to do it. However you want to do it, YES. 

Keep talking to me. Show me the steps. My answer is YES!

What God Said Tonight:

A season of giving is on its way, and I am not talking about Christmas. A season of doing is nearly here. A season of prayer, active prayer, in the battlefield. A season of joy. 

I am with you and the time is here. Your season is here.

Perspective...


My prayer:

Today was certainly interesting. I was definitely not bored! I am looking forward to hearing your voice tonight God. Hearing your wisdom seems important, more than ever.

What God Said Tonight:

Today you saw other people, all day, who reached their limit and had their buttons pushed. I wanted you to see that you are not alone in that experience. But I also wanted to show you that the things that push their buttons are not always as serious as they seem to them. I wanted you to see that some of the things that set you off are not as serious in reality as they seem to you at the time.

Gaining perspective is an amazing thing. Approached carefully, you can find true treasures in people.

Dependent on God...


My prayer:

It felt like the world was against me a bit today God.

Days like today are great reminders of how typically, on most days, I am living in your divine favor. Days like today are exhausting. Days like today make me LONG for your return!

I love you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I was there with you in this day. I was there every time you called on me. 

I know days like today are not fun but I love when you turn to me in the midst of your trouble and ask for help. You are always so independent and you want to do things for yourself. It is nice when you are willing to let me help and do things for you. 

I love you and above all I want to see you happy, well, and fulfilled. I want to see you living out eternity with me in the midst of my love for you. 

I love you and I love all you learned today.You are mine.

Go and love...


My prayer:

Why do I let myself get so worked up over things that truly don't matter? It is the little things that seem so important at the time. Even now, thinking about it, I get myself all worked up again. Inefficiency, people who do their job poorly, people who make me late due to their issues...arrrgggg! 

Ok, I think I am done. I absolutely know that getting upset about this stuff does NO good. All it does is make me miserable, and often makes the people around me miserable.

God, I pray and ask for your peace, your wisdom and your help. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Not everyone has the same talents and not everyone needs the efficiency that you do. You were made to find value in meeting deadlines and getting things done. Not everyone else was made for that. 

You must remember that all of my kids are unique. You must remember that there is value in every single person, not just those that are most like you. You must remember because I need you to love them all. It is my love on earth that will change people's hearts. My love is best seen through my people. 

When you start to feel that pressure and annoyance, try to remember that I need you to love them anyway. When you feel that pressure, remember that it is about more than that situation. Maybe, when you are in that situation you can take a moment for a quick prayer and ask me how I want to use the situation. My answer will most likely always be the same. Go and love.

Offended...


My prayer:

Whooohoo did I get offended today! I know I am not supposed to. I know I am supposed to turn the other cheek. But, in the moment, as a big pile of proverbial crap was being dumped in my lap...yea, I am not proud of my reaction.

God I pray for peace and strength to brush that stuff off. I know, in my more lucid moments, that it doesn't really matter. I know that you will take care of it and show me crazy favor like always. I just need to remember that earlier.

Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

An offense is not something that is taken on lightly. Especially as my child, you know the consequences of offense. You know that it can fester into bitterness and cause poison in you. 

I don't expect for you to let go of offense immediately but I do expect you to let go. I will help. 

Hanging on will destroy you. Letting go will free  you. The sooner you let go, the sooner you are free. The longer you hang on, the longer you are trapped. 

I love you, now and forever. Release it all to me.

God's direction...


My prayer:

I had a lot of fun today God but I am pretty worn out. Fun can be exhausting! Thank you for the luxury of a day of fun. Thank you for keeping me healthy to enjoy it. 

My request tonight God is for direction and inspiration. Were the things we talked about tonight from you or is just us getting bored and wanting to force things to get moving? I really don't have the energy to chase after anything that is not of you. 

Please give us wisdom and insight into what you want to do next. We will get right in there with you, if you want us to.

What God Said Tonight:

There is very little of what you want to do that is not also in my will. You have my heart and that heart drives your desires for the most part. Once in a while, something comes in that is not of me but those times are pretty obvious. This is not one of those times. 

Move forward in the direction you choose. I will be there with you.  We are living this life together.

Friday, October 13, 2017

You and me and Glory...


My prayer:

Today was a good day. Thank you for all that you did today. I pray your will continues to be done, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

I see a day in your future where there is no pain, there are no doubts, there is nothing but you and me and Glory. 

That day will be like none before it. The Glory of that day will live forever. 

There are days that do not end. They are so powerful, so meaningful, that they last long after the night comes. 

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Broken...


My prayer:

Today was a long one! Very glad to be done and here with you God. 

My prayer tonight is for all of us who had a long, rough day. I ask God that you give us peaceful rest a new hope and inspiration in the morning. Wake us up with your vision, your direction, and your fire. Remind us of our purpose and help us to carry it out.

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Life is fragile and beautiful. One good smack in the right spot and your life can fall to pieces like a shattered glass globe. However, even broken glass has beauty and use. 

Sometimes it is the brokenness that brings out the true purpose. A glass globe is beautiful to look at but it has very little use. Break the globe and you have sharp edges to cut with, you have points to make tools. You have many uses. 

It can be the same with people, with your life. An unbroken life is beautiful to behold; however, it is not much use. When troubles come, someone who has not had any brokenness in the past will have no idea how to cope. Someone who has been broken and has survived knows what to do, knows they will make it through, and can help others around them. 

I don't break you but I know how to give the pieces of your life meaning and purpose. I don't break you but I know how to heal you, right in your brokenness. 

I love you, brokenness and all.

Every good thing...


My prayer:

I found some joy today God. Not a big heaping helping of it but I found some. I enjoyed every second of it too!

Thank you for moments of joy. Sometimes, that is all I need.

What God Said Tonight:

Every good thing comes from me. When you need "good" seek me out and you will find it. When you need joy, call out to me and you will have the joy you need. When you need blessings, call on me, seek me and when you find me, you will find the blessings. 

I am the Good Father. I will share with you all good things. 

Instead of chasing after the 'good things', running yourself ragged as they run away and dart around, just seek me and you will find every good thing. 

I love you and I am not stingy.

Privilege...


My prayer:

Thank you God for hearing my prayer and helping me today. What could have been a really bad thing turned into no big deal because you helped me say what needed to be said and gave me favor with "man." THANK YOU!

Your favor is amazing. We often think about your favor in relation to finances (and that is wonderful) but it goes way beyond that. It is someone telling me my backpack is unzipped on the train. It is someone taking bad news with grace and generosity. It is all the things that go right, not because of any reason except you decided that they should go right.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FAVOR!

What God Said Tonight:

A child of God is born with privilege. It is the privilege of being the King's kid. 

Walk in your privilege but always remember to share the blessing and the favor. They are for you but your love and generosity is what draws others to me. Share your blessings and I will multiply them. Always. 

I love you and I love blessing you.

Small blessings...


My prayer:

Thank you for all of the small blessings today God. They are not much on there own but they add up to make a pretty rotten day more bearable. Thank you also for your protection. You certainly rebuked the devourer for my sake several times today. As I look back on today, it was not great but it could have been so much worse.

Father, protector, redeemer, and giver of all good things. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

A blessing's size is dependent primarily on the need. A well placed 'I love you' can make all the difference. Take a new look at those circumstances looming and see them through the lens of blessing.

Power to choose...


My prayer:

Headed into another week God. I pray that you help me to see the opportunities to help people. I pray for your patience and love to flow through me. I pray that you guide every step, every word, and every action of my week. I pray that your will is done.

What God Said Tonight:

There is little left to say and little left to know. 

There is joy around every corner and tragedy in the way. There is peace that passes all understanding and there is fear looking for release. 

This life, here in this world, is filled with contradictions. You , as a child of God, get to choose how and where you will live in it. You get the wisdom of seeing it all and the power to choose your path. 

I love you and I will provide for you every good thing. Seek out your blessing and pick it up. 

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Insecurity...


My prayer:

Insecurity. You know God that this is not normally a problem for me but every once in a while, the right person says the wrong thing and I sit here questioning my self worth. The person probably did not mean anything by it, I know they didn't mean to hurt me in any way. I bet, if I asked, they would not even remember saying it. And yet, here I sit wondering if I am getting it all wrong.

The only opinion that really matters when it comes to me and my life, is yours. Am I on the right path? Am I missing something? Do I need to be doing something different, something more? Please, God, let me know.

What God Said Tonight:

It is not a matter of what you should or shouldn't be doing. 

Tonight was a reflection of your own self condemnation. It is the voice in side of you that has gotten quieter but has not yet been silenced that makes you think you need to perform in order to be good enough. It is the voice that tells you anything less than perfect is not enough. 

You are perfected in Christ. That is really all you need to know. Your path, your journey, your purpose has an eternity to roll out. 

I am with you. There is nothing more you need to know. 

If you want to do more, do it, but not out of a sense of obligation and not because you have to show me or anyone else you are good enough. You are good enough, right now, because I live in you. 

I love you, now and forever.

The joy of the Father...


My prayer:

Such great, deep peace tonight God. Not peace that comes from circumstances, that is for sure. But, great, deep peace from you. Thank you for a wonderfully slow day. It seemed like the world slowed down a bit today or maybe just I slowed down. Regardless, it was a really nice change. 

This moment, deep in your peace is so beautiful. I could stay here forever. I love you

What God Said Tonight:

I have prepared a place for you tonight. It is a celebration and a reunion. It is the joy of a Father whose daughter has put aside everything in her life to spend time only with her Father. 

I honor this time with you. I crave it. I cherish it. Spending time with you, loving you, it is why I created man in the first place. All I wanted was to live life with you and love you. Things got complicated, but my initial desire, that has not changed. 

Thank you for sitting with me tonight. Let my love be your blanket and my peace be your bed. I love you.

Thursday, October 5, 2017

Ask and pray...


My prayer:

What a strange week this has been so far! I am left a little dazed and confused but grateful for you God. Your constant presence in my life is the core of my hope and my joy. 

This week in particular, I feel like I am praying pretty much all day every day so when I get here with you for this quiet time tonight, any prayers I might have are redundant. It seems far better to listen than to talk.

I am here, with love and hope, waiting for your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

Thanks for setting aside some time a bit earlier tonight. The struggles of this week are draining your reserves a bit and I did not want to miss that time together. I have a few things to tell you tonight. 

There is something on the horizon that will change the circumstances around you. You have been waiting for the change and you will like it but just a heads up that change is coming. 

Also, continue to pray for the hurting around you. Your prayers are activators for my kingdom to come down on earth and reign. I can do more, help more, intervene more when I am called into a situation. I am sovereign in all but as I gave you free will, I will keep my hands off of situations unless asked. So, ask. For yourself, for others, ask and pray. Activate my full power and grace in you and the world around you. 

I love you.

Divide and conquer...


My prayer:

Awesome God. I have been hearing conversations lately that convince me more than ever that I do not fit in this world. I know you have told me that I am not meant to fit in here, but, sometimes it is harder than other times. 

I definitely do not want to be somewhere everyone is the same or everyone agrees with me. I like diversity. I like challenging each others opinions. But, when the basic foundation of who someone is and what they care about is in direct conflict with my foundation and what I care about, it is hard to find any common ground.

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed...I got that one down! Now, how do I live it out without getting so frustrated?

I love you. Thank you for listening to my whine.

What God Said Tonight:

Be aware and remember that one of satan's primary tactics is to divide, separate, and isolate people. If he can get you isolated, he has an easier access to mess with you. 

Don't let him do it. Reach out to those around you and find a commonality. Or, if you can't, find a way to love them anyhow. 

Love is more important right now than it ever was before. Learn to love everyone, always.

Love is our weapon...


My prayers:

I am horrified by the violence in Las Vegas God. These horrible massacres just continue to take lives. Almost every week and sometimes every day, there is something reported somewhere. Millions of people being terrorized. It has to stop. 

God, I pray for comfort and healing for the victims and their families. I pray for healing of this world so we stop killing each other. 

Please, Jesus, come back soon.

What God Said Tonight:

My angels and Holy Spirit are working overtime to see to the people who were hurt in this latest horrible outbreak of pain. 

A man, in great pain, chose to kill all that he could. There is no logic to this decision. It is born of pain and evil. Evil takes root in pain and flourishes. Love is the weapon against evil and pain. You can fight these horrors with love. 

Find a way to love and show compassion to everyone around you. Watch how it heals. 

Don't allow bitterness and pain to take root in you. Evil will nest in it and take you places you do not want to go. 

I am coming back, as soon as I can. While you wait, love like crazy. Love like me.

Rescue...


My prayer:

Today was different. There were a lot of surprises. Some good. Some not so good. But everything worked out in the end. Thank you for the opportunity to help today God. Thank you for putting me in the right place at the right time with the right people to help. That gentleman likely would have died today if you had not put us all there to help. Thank you for loving him enough to bring us together when he needed us. 

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes I am in the wind. Today, I was in the wind. The wind that brought you to the place of need and the wind that created the need. The same impetus can  create both the problem and the solution. 

My glory reigns. My love triumphs in every situation. I love you. 

Trust in me and know that I can use anything for your rescue, I can even use the source of your problem to bring you your rescue. 

I love you  now and forever.

God's assurance and mystery...


My prayer:

Every day we are faced with things that seem too difficult to bear and every day you get us through. I know I have said this before but I truly cannot imagine how people make it through one day without you. I would be completely lost, hopeless, and destroyed without you. 

Thank you for choosing me. Thank you for being in my life. Thank you for being you.

What God Said Tonight:

Your assurance is that I will always come through for you.. The mystery and excitement of life is waiting to see how I will do it. That will always change. 

How I work in your life is always changing so you remember it is me and not a formula. But, the truth that I will show up and take care of you is the constant and never changing truth you an rely on.

Friday, September 29, 2017

Love, empathy, and grace...


My prayer:

Thank you God for closing a door today. I love all of the opportunities you provide for me but I love it just as much when you make it clear what opportunities I should not follow. I love being your kid and I love walking your path in my life. 

What God Said Tonight:

When you see other people dance in celebration and joy and you feel their joy like your joy, that is love. When you see someone's sorrow and you heart hurts for their pain, that is empathy. When  you see someone deliberately try to harm you and you forgive and let it go, that is grace. 

Show off your love, empathy, and your grace. They come from me. I have planted them deep in your DNA. 

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Impossible situations...


My prayer:

Awesome God. I need to pray for something that I don't even have words for tonight. I need to pray for your help for my friends and I can't even say what that help looks like. 

They are in a situation that looks hopeless but their hope remains in you. They are facing things and fears they never thought they would have to face and they are believing in you to bring them through. 

I add my faith and my prayers to theirs. Hear our prayers, even those that have no words. In Jesus name we ask for your help.

What God Said Tonight:

When you run out of words, use mine. Let my Holy Spirit pray thorough you. 

I am on the job. I am not asleep and I am not somewhere else. I am with them. I am with you. I will not let them perish. 

I will be with them. I will strengthen them. I will help them through every impossible situation. 

There are things you do not know or understand in this situation. There is a love and a hope that I have nurtured in them for this time. I will give them everything they need to ride this storm. 

This is an opportunity for a great glory to be shown. This is a testimony in the making that will change lives. 

I love you. I have heard you. I am on it.

Goodness...


My prayer:

Another day where nothing went as I planned but everything worked out. Thank you for your guidance God. Thank you for showing me the roadblocks for what they were. Thank you for understanding my frustration and giving me another path. You are so good to me!

What God Said Tonight:

Focus on the goodness surrounding you. I have placed you in the center of goodness. 

There are other things you can see and focus on. There is terror and there is war. There is the doom of a time you cannot change. But there is goodness too. 

Take all of your effort for the rest of the week and focus that energy on seeing with new eyes, the goodness I have placed around you. 

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Are you a follower...


My prayer:

Thanks for the time away God. It was so beautiful up there, like always. I feel like that is a special spot in the world that you save for me. Being there always soothes my nerves and revitalizes my soul. Thank you for the luxury of taking time from work and being able to really get away. 

While I have been disconnected, it looks like the world kept moving. So many needs, so many tragedies, so many dangers and I pray for your help in every single situation. I pray that you reach out and protect and heal your people. Thank you for being big enough, powerful enough, and loving enough to take care of it all.

I am ready for the day when the old world and the old heaven go away and you replace it with a new heaven and earth. I am ready for the day that we walk and live together, just as you had planned way back in the garden. I look forward to the day when my full time occupation is to give you praise. 

I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

Are you a follower? Are you one who will follow the lead of your Master? 

Not every leader is a follower and not every follower is a leader. I need you to be both. I need you to lead, as you follow me. I need you to recognize your place in eternity and stand in it. 

There are times I need you to stand up and make witness of me and my glory. There are times when I need you to follow my lead, stay silent and let my will be accomplished. 

The real challenge is understanding when you need to be each. The real challenge is not getting confused and leading when you should follow or following when you should lead. 

I love you. I will help.

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Never worry...


My prayer:

So, a lot can change in a day. I guess you knew this was going to happen the whole time which is why you kept saying to wait? I really need to remember that nothing is impossible with you and just about the time I think I have it all figured out, you will change it up. 

Thank you for guiding, directing, teaching and helping me every day God!

What God Said Tonight:

Remember today as a perfect example of why you need never worry. 

I will always take care of you. I will always make sure you come out on top. I love you and I will see you prosper. Now and forever.

Glory within the tragedy...


My prayer:

Earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, shootings...my head spins with the tragedy and need in this world. The best I know to do is pray God because only you are big enough to help us through this much trouble.

I pray God that you provide and protect the hundreds of thousands of people effected by tragedy this month, whether it was nature-made or man-made tragedy. Give them hope. Give them shelter. Give them food and give them love. I pray your healing power over their minds, their bodies, and their lives. 

Thank you God for your help.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your ever present help. I have sent legions of angels around the world to minister to my people. Some you will see and some you will not. 

Always remember that while there definitely is tragedy, there is also opportunities to love, to bless, and to heal. The outcome of tragedy does not have to be pain. When Lazarus died, his death was a tragedy but God the Father chose to use that tragedy to show his glory. In raising Lazarus from the dead, I took something that was meant for evil and pain and turned it into something to inspire and cause great awe. 

Look within the tragedy and see the glory I create. There is glory in rescue. There is glory in healing. There is glory in people coming together to help each other.

I love you.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

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.

Mud...


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. 

I LOVE BEING YOUR KID!!!!

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.

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Contentment...


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.

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.

Peace...


My prayer:

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rabboni...


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.

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.

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.

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.

Reminder...


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.

Crisis...


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Forgive...


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.

Balance...


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.
