July 29, 2013 pretty prayers



‘The One who examines the thoughts and emotions is a righteous God. My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.’ (Psalms 7:9, 10 HCSB)

Hello Child of God Most High-
Praying this morning. More specifically, I am praying for you this morning.
You know Sweetheart, most people think praying has to be a polished art form – pretty words said in a clever fashion. Really, prayer is just laying “it” all out there for Father God to hash through. He wants honesty, not beautiful poetic words. You are so right, He does know already DearOne, but He wants us to simply lay it all out there at the very elementary level –
I’m hurting,
my friend needs a miracle,
how do I breathe through this,
my feelings are hurt,
my enemies want to destroy me,
thank you for the beauty,
my teacher/coach/boss eats worms for breakfast – then spits them at me during the day,
why did you let this happen to him,
my life is in danger,
I might explode,
how can I reach him,
Ive messed this up,
I’m sorry,
my pillow is soaked with years,
I want to love You more … and on and on.
Raw. Earthly. Prayers of honesty from the core of our thoughts: that’s getting to the heart of relationship with Father God.
Wake up.
Lay it all out there.
Go to bed.

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
