Lord, I’d like to come to you this morning and thank you for opening my eyes to another sunshine filled day full of hope and all your glories. The steaming hot coffee flowing through my parted lips never tasted sweeter. The music streaming through my earbuds and dancing playfully through my head and bringing a huge smile to my face. A voice that pleases you as it harmonizes and worships with every ounce of sincerity. This is the way we like to wake up and start our day off.
This week starts the “pre-study” portion of our upcoming study, Dangerous Prayers by Craig Groeschel. The book is wonderful and I can’t wait to go through it a couple more times. I’m honestly hoping that our wonderful ladies will get as much out of it as they put into it. That’s one of the reasons why I am coming here today. I want to open this blog up and pray for them.
We come to you as humbly as we know and ask that you fill the lives of these women with strength, courage, and the will to want to pray to you as dangerously as they can. Fill them with your wisdom and guidance as we take these next 6 weeks and dig deep into our way of communication to you. Please lay your hand on: Altagracia, Andi, Angela, Anna, Becki, Becky, Carla, Debbie, Deborah, Deni, Donna, Emily, Jennifer, Kassie, Kelsey, Kim, Kristin, Michele, Patty, Rachel, Stacey, Sylvia, Tina, Violet and of course, Victoria and myself. Help each and every one of these women to see their gifts and help them to understand and utilize their talents as unique and individual as they are. Let them be mindful and open to the fact that we can no longer live safely without taking a step in your direction. That we need to be honest with our desires and yearn for clarity in our purpose driven life.
Reach out and let them know that you are with them every step of the way and that this is truly a place they belong. Help them to communicate with everyone, step out of the shadows and take hold of the reigns of their voice. Let them be a light to others and help maneuver through your scriptures with hunger for your truths. Father, you are what we strive for, the role model we look up to in all times, not just desperation. I love that we all belong to you. Please be a gentle voice to lead them in this season and throughout the rest of their lives unto you.
In Your Heavenly Name,
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” – Acts 2:42-47
