When is it wrong to pray for specific requests?

What if we prayed?

When faced with life situations, is it ever wrong to pray for specific answers? What could possibly be wrong with that? Isn’t that what the bible teaches?  It is biblical to believe and trust God to specifically work, even in the impossible. This is one of my life passions. We should ask him to move…

Standing on the Promises of God

What if we prayed?

I was recently challenged by a friend to begin a time of leading people to pray through the promises of God. What a great idea! There are countless promises of God recorded in his word. Every one brings victory. Knowing, and standing on these promises are essential in order to pray as we should. Faith…

Transforming Faith

What if we prayed?

Do your prayers please God? Prayers that please God are prayers that are based on transforming faith. Do you pray with transforming faith?  It’s faith that confidently knows “God exists and that he rewards those who diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)  These two truths must be the core foundation of every prayer we pray.  To…

Handling unanswered prayer

What if we prayed?

I was recently asked how we should handle unanswered prayer. What a great question.  Let’s be honest, not every prayer we pray is answered, at least not in the way and or time we hoped it would be.  When my prayers are not answered I pull back and go wide.  By this I mean I…

Bloom Where You’re Planted

What if we prayed?

Are you being used by God to make a difference in others’ lives?  Are you living out the life God has in mind for you? Many say they want to be used by the Lord. They may even pray to be used.  But they spend their lives waiting–to be called by God. The truth is,…

When I don’t understand why

What if we prayed?

I will never fully understand why God does what he does. A large portion of God’s works will always remain a mystery to me. On February 11, 2021, my husband Danny passed away from Covid. I’ve shared through my writing how it made no sense to me. Countless friends and family shared that same sentiment.…

Does God hear your prayers?

What if we prayed?

An essential part of prayer is being confident that God will hear and answer us as we pray. This sounds so simple and basic, but because many struggle to pray with this assurance their prayers are not answered.  Hebrews 11:6 tells us that faith believes;  God exists; that he is who the bible says he is.…

Praying Against the Laws of Nature

What if we prayed?

“Jesus looked at them and said, with man this is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”  I don’t think many of us really understand what that means. Or we may understand it but we do not take it to heart.  This verse from Mark 10:27 means there is nothing…

Our Absolutely Dependable God

What if we prayed?

One of my favorite characteristics about God’s promises is that they’re total and complete. God speaks and acts in absolutes. There’s no partial working with our God. His promises are complete. He covers all the bases.  No one and nothing is ever left out. Think for a moment about some of the wonderful promises from the…

Danny

For those of you who have read my writings, you may have noticed that I often write about faith. I believe in taking big steps of faith both in how we live and in how we pray.  I love that scripture often speaks of how nothing is impossible for God, literally nothing. So when my husband…

No middle ground

When it comes to our relationship with God, the bible is clear. We must put God first. There is no middle ground. Jesus often drew a clear line in the sand when it came to people’s commitment to him. In Matthew 12:30, the Lord Jesus told the people following him “Whoever is not with me…

Praying to a merciful and mighty God

What if we prayed?

Over the past several months I’ve been deeply burdened to pray for Christians suffering in the country of North Korea. I’m not sure why I have this particular prayer burden but I do. God has burdened me and I pray for these precious saints of God every morning. I pray for those suffering in prison.…
