God does not usually hand us stuff on a silver platter, and with good reason! No discipline is pleasant at the time, but there are always good results! Lord, please help me to refrain from whining and murmuring in my tent! Give me a thankful heart at all times as I receive ALL Your blessings! Enable me to persevere until the end!

So often in our lives we learn how to pray because of our "prayer projects". Many years ago when I was pregnant with my first born I went through a devotional book and prayed the prayers in preparation for my child. Of course as she grew I realized that the prayer project would be continued indefinitely. My son came along and I was fully launched into it! Raising children really humbles you and causes you to realize just how little you know and how much you need God's wisdom in order to… Continue

We all have things we have prayed for and others have prayed with us endlessly. Then, there are those changes in ourselves that we wish we would see faster! How to keep going during those times... Well, for starters we must remain close to Jesus at all times and especially those times when things take forever. The second thing would be to be in the Word even more then usual. The third thing would be to grab all trusted Christian friends you can find and LET THEM KNOW! That is tough because who… Continue

Did anyone else find it interesting that there were several earthquakes reported in Mexico and California on Resurrection Sunday? God can make a statement anyime He wants to but having it happen on this holiday is certainly interesting. In any case it is a good opportunity to evaluate and ponder and ask Him for wisdom. It is also a chance to reiterate that God is still in the business of miracles and "shaking things up!" i know that He has done several miracles in my life and shook up what i… Continue

This business of praying, while a very rewarding thing, also takes discipline and a choice.. We have to choose to talk to God and choose to obey so that we can keep the communication lines open. I have to choose to turn off the tv, choose to read books on prayer when I'd rather just tune out and so on. I also have to choose to keep praying even when there are no results yet. I have to keep on believing those promises until I see them fulfilled. This is much easier said then… Continue

What a great way to use social networks! i just recently signed up and have been enjoying this social network immensely! It seems that security and decency has been built in and so us "prayer people" can get together to our heart's content! Of course we all know that prayer people are considered by most to be kind of odd birds! I can access this on both my netbook and my iPhone quite easily. I use the website on my iPhone not the mobile phone version. I am afraid the mobile site does not get as… Continue

I have taught about this and tried to practice this and yet i still need to go deeper! It is not even logical to not trust God and yet i can falter in unbelief. If i look at who He is and what He says it compels me to trust Him! Numbers 23:19 and 20 come to mind. He NEVER lies! No one else can say that!
