Ambassador of Another Realm + Adventure in the Mundane

Abba,

You are the ocean in which I swim, the air I breathe, the only reason I’m alive. You are infinite and almighty, all-wise and all-knowing. You are literally more powerful than a hurricane swirling all around me. And more gentle than a newborn baby lamb. Your love never fails or stops or misses a beat. Your forgiveness is complete and final. Your patience is steady as a mountain, and your passion is more intense than the heat in the center of the sun.

I confess that I woke up with such tiny human thoughts, letting little matrix details get to me. Judging instead of blessing and praying for those who irritate me. I also confess that I am Your ambassador reporting for duty. Do with me as You will today, Abba. I release my goals and ideas to You. I am all Yours.

Thank You that Heaven is real, and that Eternal adventure is possible here on this planet. Thank You that we’re not sentenced to a lifetime of meaningless human activity, because we can plug into You and have our eyes opened to the incredible spiritual realities taking place right where we are. Thank You for my family, this home Gramma shares with us, and Your perfect provision for us this year. Thank You for grace.

Please lead me to a phenomenal dance teacher who can help to bring that gift out in me so I can worship You with my entire body. Please show me what You are up to today and use me in the spiritual adventure. Please make me the kind of woman You can do amazing things through because I’m so surrendered and tuned in to You. Please teach me how to hear Your voice and know You. Please give me grace today to submit to my husband and love him and our children unconditionally.

Thank You! In Jesus’ name, amen!

My True Calling = Prayer + Worship Warrior

Abba,

You are beyond all comprehension. You are always busy behind the scenes orchestrating beauty and making dreams come true. You love to give us great gifts and to fulfill our hearts’ desires. You are whole and complete, not lacking anything, and steadily working to make us like You in that respect. You are brighter than the sun, stronger than a hurricane, and madly in love with each of us. You are eternal. Forever. Infinite. Divine.

I confess that yesterday I still didn’t take the time out of my oh-so-importantly busy day to pray and to deal with the spiritual realities going on around me as often as I wish I had. I acted and thought on a physical and mental level, letting my flesh and my mind run the show, neglecting the Truth by focusing on the facts and human explanations. I confess that I wasted much of my life till now by worrying about careers, projects, and income, and not living up to my true calling as a prayer warrior and worshiper.

Thank You that You don’t get tired of hearing this and roll your eyes the way I want to right now. Thank You that You gently and persistently pursue me and call me back to my True Path. Thank You for Heaven and that I was raised with complete faith that it’s a real place that I will see one day. Thank You for the questioning and doubting I went through in my 20’s that enabled me to break out of the religiosity and be an open-minded believer. Thank You for the incredible women I get to meet with today and for the dramatic transformation You worked in me in order to take me from being afraid to even attend networking events to being the one who naturally creates them and invites others. Thank You so much for all You’ve done in me. Thank You for Ashleigh Hitchcock reminding me to be my own best friend, and Angela having such an obvious spiritual attack in public that it pulled me out of my complacency and fog of spiritual forgetfulness and into action and prayer. Thank You for teaching me (just now!) that WORSHIP is prayer. Thank You for the enormous wealth of worship songs in my memory bank.

Abba, I ask that You would please keep me in a worshipful state today. Bring songs to my mind and do whatever it takes to keep me worshiping You in gratitude. If it would please You, please bring me a voice coach or whatever transformation You would prefer, to make my voice beautiful, so that I can lead others in worship without self-consciousness. Please do whatever You need to do in me in order to make me fully available for You to shine through and speak through today. Please hold Angela close today, and open her mouth to sing your praises all day long. May she be completely released and freed from the grip of those demons and surrounded by an entire battalion of angels, and may she recognize her high calling and live it out. Bless the Manna Room and make it a place of prayer, praise, power, and Presence even more than a place for great free food and interesting characters. May our Praying Wives Circle be as truly powerful as I imagine it can be, and may it only be the beginning of something epically beautiful that spreads as fast as wildfire. Please give me wisdom in all my actions and interactions today. Take all of my flesh and all my old habits and ideas, and fill me instead with Your Holy Spirit. I want to be all Yours.

Thank You thank You thank You for all You’ve done!!! My life is a miracle.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen and hallelujah! 🙂

The Work of Our Lives

Abba, Holy One, my only prayer for today comes from the Rev. Richard Baxter:

“May the Living God, who is the portion and rest of His saints, make
these our carnal minds so spiritual, and our earthly hearts so
heavenly, that loving Him, and delighting in Him, may be the work of
our lives.”

Thank You for these intensely beautiful words. May they sink deep into my heart and mind.

In Jesus’ perfect name I pray, amen.
