Prayer & Faith

My faith is very important to me.  I heart Jesus and I am so grateful for all He's done in my life!  God loves us so much and wants a close personal relationship with us.  And yet sometimes I can neglet him in my prayer life or in my bible reading at times.  I am a work in progress.  God has so much to say to us if we would just seek him and listen.  Please feel free to post prayer requests here as I will visit this page often and pray along with you.

Readings from: Intimate Encounters with God -

I've been using this wonderful book for my morning devotions.  Everyday there is a verse and a small story/devotion to go with it.

Show me your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths.  Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation. (Psalm 25: 4-5)

This has been my prayer.  I am always learning about God's ways.  I can't say I will ever fully know it or understand it.  With each year its a different step a different road to follow.  I just want to know that wherever I find myself in my life, that I am on His path.  The path He is leading for me.  The road that gets to Him.  He is the God of my salvation and I know He is always leading me.  Even at times when I don't feel like He is.  He is.  Lately I've been feeling this way.  Is He even hearing me?  Is anything going to be resolved?  I needed something.  A glimmer of hope.  Last night I got it.  I am grateful for His mercy and His kindness.  I will continue on this road Lord.  I know you are leading.


  1. I love Psalm 139..... I have such a hard time finding and giving the right amount of time for all the things I am involved in right now.. and my spiritual life is sure suffering. I pray to give God and my private time with him more of me.

    1. Yes, I struggle with that too from time to time and I have to refocus. He comes first. So I try to do it first thing in the morning before the madness starts. It's like a chore at first and I have to plan it and I don't want to get up any earlier. But if you just start with 10 minutes earlier. It will get easier. I still miss days. But it's better again. I have this app called You version. And there's many reading plans on it. They send you reminders too :) I have a nice Joyce Meyer one that gives a little story, a scripture and a prayer starter. I start there and some days I keep going. :) I'm talking to God throughout my day. But I know how important it is to set apart time for just Him. I'm still a work in progress. I'm sure we all are :)
