Headed in the Right Direction

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. Lord, I pray for direction, that my steps be ordered according to Your Word and will for me. Let all of the wrong paths that Satan endeavors to tempt me with be illuminated by the light of Your love so that I may instead see the right direction to head, which leads to You. As I move to apply Your Word to each day, help me to see You in everything […]

Change is Now

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, Your glory is rising over the horizon, shining forth in my life. I thank You for blessings seen and unseen; for undeniable miracles transpiring right before my eyes. Change is now, for the better, because Your hand of mercy has been gathering all of the pieces for a great reveal. I see You moving. I feel Your presence in the atmosphere. Everything has been working for my good. For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. In my struggle with waiting, You have mercifully sustained me […]

God Made A Way

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Although I have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, in spite of myself, God, You made a way. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness. You made a way for me to return to You. You sent Jesus here as a man to walk the path that I am walking, to be a living example for me to follow, and then to give up His life for mine, so that I could be Yours. Thank You for such great forethought and sacrifice to make a way on my behalf, when without it, I would be lost, forever under the influence of Satan […]

Ephphatha – Be Opened

When God speaks, everything closed that should not be can be opened in Jesus’ name. Even when the door has been shut for what seems like forever, God has great power to open up the way. Aren’t you excited about this? I am. What appears to be closed in our lives can be opened when we follow closely and are ready to receive our deliverance. Let’s take a quick look at the story of Jesus healing a deaf and dumb man, making him physically whole, and see how this can apply to our personal lives […]

Living Water Flows

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: For You bless the godly, O Lord; You surround them with Your shield of love. Because of Your love, anyone who believes in You may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” Thank You Lord for the living water that flows in my life. The source of life giving power rejuvenates the dry places and sustains me from moment to moment. When I go through deep waters, You will be with me. When I go through rivers of difficulty, I will not drown. When I walk through the fire of oppression, I will not be burned up; the flames will not consume me […]

Don’t Interrupt the Pruning Process

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: How joyful are those who fear the Lord—all who follow Your ways! I will enjoy the fruit of my labor. How joyful and prosperous I will be! Lord, fulfill in me what You will have me to do. I want to enjoy the fruit of my labor and be joyful and prosperous in who You have made me to be. The process can appear to drag on, but the pruning is necessary if I am to be fruitful for You, as well as in all areas of my life. I want to complete the process no matter how long or how demanding the pruning gets […]

Initiate the Reboot Sequence Before You Become Inoperable

God may have to do a total reboot in our lives while we wait for the Savior to hit the restart button that will release us to continue in our true calling for Him. Does this sound familiar to you? You are going about your day doing the duties that you have been assigned to do. You have just about completed the project but then the file that you have open on your computer cannot be saved. What happened? The computer has frozen up! No warning. No alert was sent. You are just stuck with no alternative but to initiate the reboot sequence. This is tragic. So you think! […]

I Give Up

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I come to You with an honest heart. I know Your will. I have studied Your commands. My intellectual mind knows the way to go; but God, sometimes, oftentimes, I get in my own way. God, I give up. I give up the struggle to have things go as I have planned, because, let’s face it, God, it is futile to believe that I will have the final say. I give up trying to control the course of my life and will allow you to have full reign. This goes against what my carnal mind chooses to do, but as I begin a new year, I have come to the conclusion that the fight that I have tried to fight requires that I give up in order to actually win […]

Don’t Let My Labor Be in Vain

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: God Your Word says, “A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.” I pray today that I not be found pursuing worthless things as You look upon my life to find the glory that belongs to You. Let all of my dealings with others be on the up and up, for Your Word tells me that, “Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.” How joyful are those who fear the Lord—all who follow Your ways! I will enjoy the fruit of my labor. How joyful and prosperous I will be! […]

He Fills My Life With Good Things

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! Lord, You are ALL to me. You are my peace in a storm, my joy through the valley, my strength in moments of weariness, where my heart rejoices because of who You are to me […]

It’s Never Too Late to Let God Move In

God wants to fit into every space within Your heart. Will you let Him? It’s Never Too Late for Your Dreams to Come True. God is Still Changing Lives for the Better. Finish the Process. Have you ever tried to make something fit when it really didn’t? You are just becoming exhausted while you are pushing and trying to maneuver things into place according to your perspective of the layout for your life. I know I have done this and probably looked a tad bit crazy doing it. Hey, it probably happened again this week. 🙂 I knew it wouldn’t work; but, in the moment, I refused to give up on “my” dream of making it so. […]

Follow In His Footsteps

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I exalt You and glorify the precious name of Your dear Son, Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living Eternal God. For when I see Him, I also see You. When I glorify Him, I also glorify You. You are One with the Holy Spirit. I will sing of Your unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens. Lord, I have come to realize that only You can help me and truly rescue me from the depths of my sin. Without You and what Your Son exhibited in His death, burial and resurrection, I would be destroyed forever, left with nothing and no one to bring me out […]

God, If I Will Stick With You

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. I don’t want to miss anything You might want to share with me, today. I still have so much that I must learn, not just so that I will know the way, but so that I may enlighten others according to Your commands and instruction for faithful obedience. If I will stick with You, You will teach me all that I need to know. Heavenly Father, I will never fully arrive until Christ returns for me. Things are ever changing around me. I don’t want to get lost in the disruptions that this life brings. According to Your mighty and powerful Word, the grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of my God stands forever […]

Let God Take You Higher

Enjoy the ride and when the doors open up, walk into your destiny. He is building you up and He strengthens you with each level higher that you go. When I arrived at work today and walked into the building, I arrived to see an elevator, with its doors open, waiting for me. “Now that’s rare!” I thought. Well, rare for where I work, as this never happens. I realized that someone might have been looking out for the next person who would arrive, sending down from above what was needed to carry them up to the next level. This rarity of forethought is not always visible to us. It’s almost unrecognizable in the world that we live in; this me, myself, and I world […]
