Unhindered Prayers

Don’t let the way you treat others get in the way of how your prayers are being answered!

(Taken from Joel Osteen)

Did you know that the way you treat people has an impact on the effectiveness of your prayers? The Bible says that the prayer of the righteous person is powerful, but if we aren’t treating others with honor, kindness and respect, then we aren’t allowing His righteousness to operate in us. When we don’t treat others the way we should, it closes the door to God’s power and hinders our prayers.

This is especially true in a marriage relationship. Marriage isn’t just an agreement between two people to live life together. Marriage is a God-ordained institution that helps us understand love and unity. When two people are married, they become one physically, spiritually and emotionally. This particular passage is directed toward husbands, but it applies to all believers as well. We should all treat others “with understanding,” which means considering the needs of others above our own. We should always aim to treat others with kindness, dignity and respect and quickly choose forgiveness.

The Bible says that the way we treat others is the way we treat God. So choose love and treat others with respect so that your prayers can be powerful and effective the way God promises!

A Prayer for Today

“Father in heaven, I want to live in Your ways. I want to treat others with love and respect which shows that I honor You. Show me how to be a blessing to others and teach me how to make my prayers effective in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

It Is Well

Is it “Well” with your soul? Sunday afternoon my mom called me and there was a tragic accident in Guyana that included extended family being taken from this earth far too soon! It was shocking, it was devastating and as the details poured in—it was gruesome! Later as I processed the incident, questions rolled through my mind about what those dear ones must’ve experienced or what were their thoughts or did they sense something was off that day? Did they meet previous family members in heaven? Who greeted them at the pearly gates? But what about those that are left to find peace here in on earth? What about those that are still processing trying to figure out the whys in a world that isn’t always fair?
We may never understand why things happen the way it does in this world, but one thing that we can rely on and that is God is in control! 

To all my family that I can’t give a hug to today but is grieving, questioning, needs His peace, I encourage you to trust the simple fact—God is in control! It is well! Love you💞

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

Overcomer

It’s Saturday! Went to bed dreaming of sleeping in and resting today—not a chance! My youngest woke up coughing and if you follow my blogs you already know when this happens somehow it can easily turn into an ordeal if it goes to her lungs. Of course we have already started the necessary precautions but my heart is always overwhelmed when any of our kids aren’t 100%! Definitely not a foreign feeling to most moms, you all know how what I’m talking about.
But whatever you are facing today—maybe it is a sick child; maybe it’s finances; your marriage; issues at work—did you realize that You are Already equipped to Overcome it? Doesn’t that alleviate the stress, the worry?

We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ! (Romans 8:37)

Whatever you are facing in this day—you already are equipped to overcome it! 💞

In His Time

“He makes all things beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Just Pray…

Doesn’t matter what this life throws at you just remember Who is on your side. 

“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16

Be filled…

This morning I woke up with this song in my heart –whatever you may be going through–Jesus is there, let Him know U need Him! Be blessed, Be filled with peace, Be filled with Hope❤️

💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest

Without You I fall apart

You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are, Lord, I am free

Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Oh God, how I need You

To teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way

When I cannot stand I’ll fall on You

Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Oh God, how I need You

(Matt Maher)

I Declare…

ONE touch from The LORD can CHANGE everything… 
Don’t give up!

Don’t give up on your dreams…

BELIEVE and DECLARE with me that you are not just going to survive life anymore, but you are going to THRIVE!

Pray for Your Children

IMG_1440

Do you pray for your children? 
I mean really pray for them-not just bless them this day or heal them from this cold or help them at school. While all those are good prayers, I believe that there are prayers where you just go to war on behalf for your kids. You know where it’s not just about the present moment but you end up praying BIG and BOLD prayers for your child.
Think about it for a moment–Who else can pray for them more honestly than you?
You know everything about them already, you’ve watched them grow each day, you know their struggles, their strengths, their weaknesses, their desires, their goals/plans/dreams–you are equipped for battle on their behalf.
Prayer is a big component in our family.  Dan and I know we have three prayer warriors in our home and yes I include our 18 month old.  Before she could say “mama” she knew to say “amen!” These girls have faith and already have experienced the power of faith in their lives.  I remember when our oldest was around 2 1/2 years old and she wanted me to play with her and I would say oh mommy’s “head is hurting, I can’t right now.” She would gently reach out and put her little hand on my head and say, “In Jesus name!”  Then she would turn to me and say “ok, let’s play, you are better now!” See kids learn so much from watching us, don’t they?
Our girls know they can come to us for prayer anytime for anything and we genuinely pray about it. I know I can not be with them 24/7 or even forever–but the prayers I lift up will keep on going before them. You often hear there’s nothing like a mother’s prayer–I believe there’s truth in that. (nothing against father’s but there’s just something very special about a mom/mommy’s prayer)
I encourage praying BIG and BOLD prayers over your children–it will help them, it will sustain them, it will protect them, it will lead them, it will comfort them, it will bring them peace and most importantly it will in turn teach them to pray!

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22
