Day 30 of 30 Days of Prayer

Lord, what a journey this has been. Some days I was overjoyed to pray. Other days I was saddened. My heart cried knowing we as a people often push you aside, doubt your Word, grow weary waiting. Thank you for pressing into me on this journey, knowing that prayer, prayer changes everything and everybody. When we pray as a group, as a people, a family of God with sincerity in our hearts not malice or vanity, dark moments brighten, mountains move, fear dissipates, love abounds, compassion flourishes. Lord, I cannot list all the FB, Twitter, Linked In, and WordPress followers who prayed on this journey, but you know each one. You sent a few face to face—in the mall, on special assignment. Thank you for using me to intercede on their behalf. I pray a mighty miracle in their lives. This prayer is Gideon’s fleece—a sign to be sure it was really God’s voice he was hearing and that he understood His directions—a sign that will show everyone that you exist, that you have not forgotten them, that you hear their cries, understand their hopes, and desire them to keep on asking to receive, seeking to find, and knocking until you open doors. And for those who don’t need a sign give them heroic strength and courage to win more souls for You.  We have the victory in Christ. Amen.

33 Days of Prayer Journey: Day 27 Hurricane Sandy

Dear God,

Thank you for bringing me through last night’s storm. Thank for hearing my prayers each time I asked you to quiet the storm, the winds hushed. I was amazed! All I could do was keep my focus on you, not the possibility of trees falling through my windows, not the possibility of being in the dark, or having to evacuate my home. Lord, thank you for the victory through the storm. You gave me power throughout the night. You gave me peace, for I was not anxious or afraid.

I’m grateful for the friends that sent me a text to see if I was okay. Lord, bless them to know your sweet favor, and how you care for those who love you in the storm and out of the storm, physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually.

Lord, I praise you for never leaving me, for never forsaking me, as you say in your Word, which is true and everlasting. Amen.
