‘I will praise You forever for what You have done. In the presence of Your faithful people, I will put my hope in Your name, for it is good.’ Psalms 52:9

Hi SweetOne!
Ongoing and constant,
inviting The Maker into all –
minutes offered up with a thread of praise;
we know the pull between standing outside His presence, in the cold, and entering back whole spirit and soul. Oh Dearheart, yes. We know it well.
Father God brings people and places into our lives, full of slamming iron doors and a rock being thrown into the middle of a herd of chickens. Whatever we think of them – they have come to bring on greater evolution in us …
ever closing in on the image of Christ. They have been brought in to bring us to a place of praise. And, this is why we praise Him forever, for what He has done.

Wake up.
Praise.
Go to bed.

‘My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, but that now as always, with all boldness, Christ will be highly honored in my body, whether by life or by death.’ Philippians 1:20

Why DearOne, would you and I ask Father God to take us deeper into Him?
When you pray to go to the next level, Satan always schedules an enemy … have you noticed? Oh, yes, GospelWarrior, you have. Obstacles come flying at us like we are a dartboard!
God doesn’t deal in problems; He deals in promises. Start praying His promises-by doing so, we ask Him to step up our circle of influence,
inspire boldness,
inspire laser beam focus,
inspire creativity,
allow us to share the Gospel in new ways.
Sometimes faith will make you look silly, Sweetheart.
Claim faith anyway. Because, no matter what obstacles come, here’s the deal:
when you go to Father with mustard seed faith, walls fall.
The bigger blessing awaits.
Going deeper is worth it. Wildest dream blessings worth it.

Wake up.
Ask.
Do.
Go to bed.

(thanks to my pastor, Bro. Matt, for planting this material!)

‘Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.’ 1 John 5:14
Mornin’, PrayerChild –
When we change the way we pray, we change everything.
Why do you think the disciples they ask Jesus, “Lord, teach is to pray?”
Because, they got it that His. power. came. from. prayer.
They got it.
Do you get that, SpiritChild? Something unique – a God thing – happens in the spiritual realm – an alignment with Father God shifts, plunging deeper both ways … and, our awareness and answer process heightens.
Prayer = proper alignment.
Pull out all the stops on prayer, Angelheart.
Burdens get placed on your heart by your Creator so you can take them right back to Him.
Is your heartache burden for your situation?
For your people?
For your world?
Prayer time is the profound difference maker.
Get specific. Pray.
Make it a pray-day.

‘Because He is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he knows My name. When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will rescue him and give him honor.’ Psalms 91:14, 15

Good mornin’ ProtectedOne!
His Holy Spirit is a straight shooter. When your call collides with His presence, that is the point you decide to show up for your soul. He doesn’t sugar-coat solutions. No fluff involved. To go deeper, you must get dirty.
Your knees shake when you start toward amazing transformation. You are tempted to get rolled over in the hustle … yes, you are about to get swept away…
Stop.
Slow.
Bend.
You know His name.
He knows your voice.
Yes, He knows your voice.
He knows you.
Bend. Go low.
Call on Him.

Mornin’ DearOne-
‘He went over to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.’ Luke 10:34

There are times that earthlings fail us. Yet, looking back on life – for each failing, aid of His Spirit did come. Perhaps, there are still dark pockets in each human brain, undeveloped, operating in a hollow basic instinct rather than in a healer mode. Yet, the healing Spirit does pour through those willing to put aside basic instinct. And, so the Healer evolves through us to lend over a soul in need of comfort, strength, a sturdy shelter.
Be aware, Sweetheart, as you hear the footsteps going into and out of doors. Listen to footsteps up and down the hallways. Listen for tread that thunders pain and cry for help. Let yourself call upon your Holy Spirit to pierce into each sincere cry for help. Wake up to remember who you are and the Power that has been born into you. Intervene.

‘Again, I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:19, 20

Hello, Prayer Partner!
I smile in my heart when I think of you, Dearheart. Mainly because I know we have been divinely appointed to this place, this time … each other … together.
Father God’s amazing ways. Mmmm.
It’s all alright.
We’re together thru the daily grind and the daily victories.
It’s all alright.
We hold onto each other.
We comfort each other.
We pass tissues around and dry each other’s faces.
We hold candles for each other, til we all find our way to our knees.
Arms over shoulders, together.
Even across space and time, arms around waists, holding hands.
We are band aids for one another, splints, and crutches.
A tribe of heart-wounded prayer warriors for one another. Appointed by the Almighty for such a time as this.
His love continues to find shelter in your heart and my heart – together bumping light into someone’s world.
Oh, how I do love you!
Make this day full of prayer and Light!

‘Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.’ Psalms 139:23, 24

Mornin’ SweetOne!
Test me.
Test me.
Opportunities pass by. We let them slide on. We don’t enter great partnerships or leave bad ones … because we don’t trust ourselves. Oh, well yeah, we want to feel comfortable, proud, confident in ourselves – but spend 95% of the time in fear and worry, ashamed of who we are because we won’t measure up, or we think someone else did it better.
Beloved, stop it.
There are energy vampires trying to suck the Holy away from you all the time. Send them away!
You don’t need fixing, but, down low, on your knees, face it, your beliefs do!
Let the Almighty Father God have His way in your lack of self-confidence.
He knows the real you. I see it too.
Refreshing and rare.
You.
The one who walks through this day with beauty and heart and radiance that can’t be found anyplace else. You own it. Filled with ease, alive and moving in your own skin.
Wake up.
Hit your knees.
Claim your confidence.
Walk in His Light.
Radiate.
Go!

‘Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.’ Ephesians 6:18

Good morning Prayer Warrior!
One part of my walk that is a bonus, that I didn’t expect when I began: hidden treasures in those who come walk with me. Some, only walk for a short while. Others bless down hard by carrying my bags over the ragged and rocky places and using a hot-shot on my backside when stuck down in the crags. And, they stay around when the skies are blue and open. We pray on for each other.
Whether a prayer escapes you, alone, with only the brush of a tiny angel feather, or you are with a group of believers who arrive in full fascinating glory, flapping wings and praying the paint off the walls – with all perseverance, just pray on.
Every prayer.
Every request.
Stay alert.
Keep praying.

‘The Lord is near all who call out to Him, all who call out to Him with integrity. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry for help and saves them.’ Psalms 145:18, 19

Hello, Dearheart.
We are all wounded, aren’t we?
Those knives through your heart aren’t always the ones that cause the most pain. Rather, the changes that begin when the heaviest swords are pulled from your heart as you fall into the arms of Father God’s immaculate strength.
Why is it that the very changes that cause the most pain often turn out to yield our greatest blessings of life?
Hmm, perhaps because the pain drives you to your knees where the cutting takes place …
He cuts through,
He cuts loose,
He plants fresh and new.
Wake up.
Hit your knees.
Be amazing.
Go to bed.

Hello, Dearheart.
We are all wounded, aren’t we?
Those knives through your heart aren’t always the ones that cause the most pain. Rather, the changes that hurt when the heaviest swords are pulled from your heart as you fall into the arms of Father God’s immaculate strength.
Why is it then, Angel, that the very changes that cause the most pain often turn out to yield our greatest blessings of life?
Hmm, perhaps because the pain drives you to your knees where the cutting takes place … He cuts through, He cuts loose, He plants fresh and new.
Wake up.
Hit your knees.
Be amazing.
