You Can Comfortably Rest in Him

(Intentional Prayer) – Intermittent Audio Prayer Break
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, when I come to You, tired in my body, exhausted in my thought processing, frazzled in my soul, I know that I come to the God of my salvation who offers complete rest for me. El Shaddai, God Almighty, I know that I am able to transfer all that I carry upon Your shoulders, releasing the heaviness that this life attempts to outfit me in each day. From Your well filled with unconditional love and grace and mercy, I am able to draw all the resources that I need. As one of the many benefits offered to me, You so graciously maintain an open door policy, through Jesus Christ, which always and without reservation needed, allows me to lay my weight upon Your throne […]

Separated for a Purpose

As I was searching the scriptures, my eyes were opened to a different view. Stick with me for a second. In my reading, I came across this passage of scripture in the book of Psalms. Psalms 55:6-7 (NLT) says, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest! I would fly far away to the quiet of the wilderness.” To the quiet of the wilderness. Wow! I really haven’t sat down to think about the quiet of my wilderness. Who knew that the wilderness could be experienced as a way of escape from the problems and pressures of life. For so long, I have believed my wilderness experience to be solely dreadful; no real happiness or fulfillment until I am able to get all the way through. Let’s take a look at this for a moment […]

Let It Do What It Do

(Intentional Prayer) – Intermittent Audio Prayer Break
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, Your Word has been designed as an instrument for deliverance. It is complete, active and powered by You. It is enough and I am enough to confidently read and meditate on its truths. I feel Your power, while I utilize the Word of God in prayer as I strive to connect with You. With my voice, let me lift You up so that others may feel Your presence and see You moving within their set of circumstances. Lord, let Your Word do what it is intended to do. You require nothing out of the ordinary of me, for I am special as I am, sufficient as You made me to be. For I am Your chosen child, still growing, still learning, still finishing my process, letting Your Word do what it was uniquely created for, fulfilling it’s purpose, and soothing every doubt that comes to destroy […]

The Journey

(Intentional Prayer) – Intermittent Audio Prayer Break
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, Thank You for being El Shaddai, God Almighty, who keeps me from falling. In You, I am made righteous, and with great joy You bring me into Your glorious presence without a single fault. You are God alone, and before time began, You were on the throne, You are God alone. All glory belongs to You, my Savior through Jesus Christ my Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time!  You are my sure foundation, my comforter and my hope, who never fails to receive me into Your loving arms, while I proceed in this journey toward and with You […]

Be Still and Know

Have you ever found yourself in a place of quietness, not really understanding your momentary need to shut-down, perhaps asking God, “What is it?  What is it that you want me to hear?” How do we go about acquiring direction?  What needs to occur so that we will know what move is after this? We are faced with questions, questions, and more questions. Psalm 46:10a (NLT) says, “Be still, and know that I am God!” When we reach that point of feeling as though we have nothing left to give, that feeling of blah, we must quiet ourselves and listen for the voice of the Lord […]

What He’s Done For Me

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as I draw closer to You and feel Your presence in all that I do, I choose this day to realize how Blessed I am. I will never forget Your grace and mercy that is showered over my life. Like rain drops that pour from the heavens, so Your love is provided to me as nourishment for my soul. The breathtaking beauty and growth that manifests from nothing that I could ever do on my own is absolutely amazing. For you have rescued me from the kingdom of darkness and transferred me into the Kingdom of Your dear Son, my Redeemer, my High Priest, my Savior, my Example and Guide, who purchased my freedom and forgave my sins […]

Ponder This

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I have come to realize that obedience is the gateway to my Overwhelming Victory. As I obey You, do Your will, and follow the steps of growth in You, even when the course of my day may not always go as planned, You are seeing about me. Everything that comes to hinder my progress in You must answer to the God of my Salvation. Even when my own thoughts try to turn against me, I can pray to You, O Lord, that every proud obstacle that keeps me from knowing You, O God, is destroyed, in Jesus’ name. For my rebellious thoughts can be captured and they can be taught to obey Christ. How amazing are Your deeds! […]

Rejoice and Be Glad

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank You Lord for a new day to give You praise and to magnify Your name. You are a mighty and awesome King; ruler of all the earth. El Shaddai, You are God Almighty who reigns forever. I will shout with joy to You Lord. I will worship You with gladness. I will come before You singing with joy. For You are good and Your unfailing love and faithfulness endureth forever. I command my soul to rejoice and be glad, this day and forever more! […]

Speak Out

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, You have a steadfast love for people who are hurting. In our distress, when we cry out, “Lord, help!”, You rescue us from our anguish. All of our peace comes from You. You lead us straight to safety. You lead us from the darkness and deepest gloom; You, and You alone have the power to break all of the chains that come to keep us bound. We would never make it through this journey without Your great love. You send Your Word and it provides healing for all that we need […]

When There Isn’t A Way

God makes ways out of nothing. It’s what He does best. When He created the world, He simply spoke and it was so. With one Word, God changes the atmosphere, literally, and He irrefutably changes things within our individual life circumstances. Does every way that God makes for us happen instantly? In most scenarios, that is not the case. But that is where our faith kicks in. We also can reflect and remember what He has already done in our lives and in the lives of others. He can break every chain that comes to block our way to Him.[…]

No Matter What

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: No matter what comes along my path, God, I can turn to You and pour out my heart and let You know that I am in need of Your great strength. You are always available and always willing to guide me through. For, You, O Lord, never grow weak or weary. You understand all that I encounter. Nothing is new to You, Elohim, God, Mighty Creator. You are everlasting God, the source of the strength that I need […]

First Things First

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear as long as I put things in the right order, by putting first things first. Jesus directly tells me what I am supposed to do. I am not to worry about everyday life—whether I have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and my body more than clothing? Everything is in Your great care and under Your mighty authority; therefore, these are things that I am able to entrust to You. These worries and cares of life I place them in Your hands […]

Right Where I Am

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, in this maze called life, You have placed me, at the proper times, right where I needed to be. Every opportune moment that You have prepared for me will not be missed, because where I am, is where You want me to be. My unique destinations that have been ordained for me will lead me to where Your glory resides. My steps have been outlined at creation, by You, Elohim, God, Mighty Creator […]

You’ve Been Accepted: Partnership Agreement with Jesus Christ

1 Corinthians 1:9 (NLT) says, “God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” Being in partnership with Jesus Christ fits all of the pieces of our lives together like that of a puzzle. It does not matter how many scattered parts of your life there are, God has a place for each piece. He connects them together to form a beautiful picture of your life in Christ Jesus. Once we are in agreement with Him, our lives flow more smoothly and in the right direction […]
