Abba Dad, I come to You in the name of Jesus and I pray for my website visitors. Lord, breathe afresh upon our hearts in very intimate ways. Lord, You love us so very much. You tell us in Your Word that You ARE love. You, God, are the very essence of love. So, Lord, I ask that You would love on our hearts in deeply personal and deeply intimate ways today and every day. Our hearts are meant to love You. Our hearts are meant to pursue You. Our hearts are meant to worship You. Our hearts are meant to be loved and pursued by You. Lord, we choose to draw our hearts closer to You. And we ask that You would cause our hearts to beat for You. Cause our hearts to beat with passion for You. Cause our hearts to be open and receptive to Your deep, personal, and intimate love for us in ever-deeper ways. Fill our hearts so much with Your love that Your love would spill over onto each other and others. Fill our hearts with worship to You that every breath that we take and every beat of our hearts would be an act of worship to You. Fill our hearts with so much praise to Your name that praise would spill over from our lips to the atmosphere and the world around us. Mmmm...Abba Dad, the fullness of Your love warms our hearts. Thank You, God. In Jesus' name. Amen.
“There’s a private place reserved for the lovers of God where they sit near Him and receive the revelation-secrets of His promises.” (Psalm 25:14 TPT) Lord, thank You that You have created a private place for my website visitors and me and that You invite us into Your private place that is reserved for each of us individually. Quiet our hearts for us when You desire for us to sit near You. I pray that we would hear Your invitation to us to come sit near You, and when we do, I pray that we would hear You whisper Your revelation-secrets to us. Thank You, God, for the great things You have planned for us as we sit near You, the greatest of which is being near Your heart. We love You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
“What delight comes to [the visitors of Deep Water Solutions] who follow God’s ways! [We] won’t walk in step with the wicked, nor share the sinner’s way, or be found sitting in the scorner’s seat. [Our] pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of “I Am,” meditating each and every moment in the revelation of light. [We] will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss; bearing fruit in every season of [our] lives. [We] are never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever plentiful." (Psalm 1:1-3 TPT) Oh, amen!
Recently when I was praying, I asked God a question. Sick, exhausted, and discouraged, I asked God in a frustrated tone, "God, can You HEAR me?" INSTANTLY, the verse, "My God will hear me." (Micah 7:7) came to my mind. God has a sense of humor! "Yes, Daughter, I hear you." now rings loudly in my smiling heart! Sometimes when we pray, it is common for us to become weary - both physically and in prayer. But, be ENCOURAGED - our God hears us! OUR GOD HEARS US!
Lord, thank You for the impression that You have given me about “eyes.” What is on Your heart about eyes that has the potential to bless the readers of this blog? Thank You that Your loving, watchful eye is always upon my readers. Thank You that Your eyes never close in sleep or slumber. Thank You that You see my readers. Thank You that each of us is the apple of Your eye. Thank You that Your eyes light up when You think of each reader. Thank You that even if my readers perform in secret an act that pleases You and blesses others, YOU see it and will reward that. And, on the flip side of that, thank You that Your loving eye even sees when we have acted in a way contrary to Your will and You lovingly re-direct us. Thank You that You love us. Thank You that You love each one of us individually. Thank You that You have seen the pain in our lives. Thank You that You have seen the pain in our hearts and the tears in our eyes...even if no one else sees that. Thank You that Your plan for us is good and to give us a hope and a future and that You will work all those painful things into good for each one of us. Thank You for vision. Thank You for the physical ability to see. If there are any physical eye problems that any of my readers need You to touch and heal, I pray that in Your mercy, You would touch and heal physical eye conditions. Thank You for spiritual vision. Thank You for allowing my readers to see Your Truth. I pray that we would never be deceived and that we would always see and know the Truth...and the Truth would set us free. Thank You for Your “destiny vision” for each one of us. Thank You that You have given each one of us a destiny. I pray that Your “destiny vision” for each of us would always be clearly before our eyes and that we would follow You every step of the way into Your destiny for us! Thank You for eyes to see Your heart. Open up our eyes wider to see Your heart of love – not only for us individually, but also for those around us. You have put people into our lives that need to see You through each of us. Help us to see their need for You. And help us to see each person through YOUR eyes. Thank You for allowing us to see a tiny, tiny, minuscule sliver of Your glory. Oh, Lord, open up each of our eyes even wider to Your glory so that we can say, "I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of His robe filled the temple." (Isaiah 6:1 English Standard Version). YES, LORD! YES! Oh, THANK YOU, LORD, for all that You desire to do in and through each of our eyes! And it's ALL for YOUR GREAT GLORY! In Jesus' name. Amen!
Father God, thank You for this new day. Thank You for Your indescribable love for us! We give You ourselves and surrender our lives afresh today. Lord, it's a rainy morning where I live; but, I ask You to rain down Your Spirit upon my website visitors in refreshing ways today. Wherever they need Your Spirit to rain on them today, I pray that You would do that. Shower them with blessings and DRENCH them in Your presence. Oh, Living Water, everywhere my website visitors are thirsty, may they drink in Your presence. Saturate the very cells of their bodies in ways that no H20 ever could. Fill them to overflowing with Your Spirit and when the pressures of life threaten to squeeze them, may what comes out be all YOU, for You have so saturated them. Mmmm...Your presence is refreshing and Your presence is yummy. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Holy Spirit. Thank You, Abba Dad. We love You and abide in Your love for us. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Father God, thank You for this new day to come to You and lift my website visitors up to Your Throne. Abba Dad, besides Your deep, undying love, what else is on Your heart for my website visitors? [Thank You, Abba, for intercessory tears!] Abba Dad, take Deep Water Solutions visitors into the deep places in Your heart. You are a personal God, and Your heart of love, compassion, and mercy has no boundaries. The love in Your heart is limitless. And You have personal gifts in Your heart that are reserved for each of Your children. Abba Dad, take them into the special deep places that You have reserved just for each of them individually. And while they are in that special place in Your heart hearing Your heart of love beating intimacy into their souls, breathe on those places in their hearts and lives that need Your intimate breath and touch those places that need Your loving touch. And, Living Water of God, while they are in that special deep place, bring refreshment to any parched areas of their heart and lives. Holy Spirit, pour out Your presence upon each reader of this blog in deeply personal and intimate ways. Your presence is intimate and Your love is too deep for human words. We praise You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We love You. Thank You for Your deep, intimate love for us. In Jesus' name. Amen.
“Many enemies surrounded me, but with the Lord’s power I defeated them. They surrounded me again and again, but I defeated them with the Lord’s power. They surrounded me like a swarm of bees, but they were quickly destroyed like a fast-burning bush. I defeated them with the Lord’s power. My enemy attacked me and almost destroyed me, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my reason for singing. He saved me!” (Psalm 118:10-14 ERV)
“Lord, You are [my website visitors'] secret Hiding Place, protecting [them] from these troubles, surrounding [them] with songs of gladness! Your joyous shouts of rescue release [their] breakthrough.” (Psalm 32:7 TPT) Amen!
Abba, I ask that You would remind us of who we are in You. Abba, remind us that we are Your sons and daughters. Remind us that we are deeply loved and pursued by You. Oh, yes, Lord. Show each of us how You are pursuing us today. Open up each of our eyes to show us how You are passionately pursuing each of us. Show each of us Your heart toward us. As we go through our day, show us how Your heart is spilling into each area of our lives for our good and for Your good purposes. Your fountain of love is so huge. We praise You for Your lovingkindness. Cause us to smile as we are refreshed by the fountain of Your love. Mmmm...thank You, Abba Dad. Oh, Lord, Your love is warm and Your presence is here. Keep us in Your loving presence throughout the rest of the day and throughout the rest of our lives. Thank You, Abba. You are good and we love You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
I wrote a prayer after my youngest (18 years old) rejoiced when he saw me. He said, “You're alive! It must be a great feeling!” (I had been very sick with a terrible migraine.) I asked him if I should break out into a Mr. Rogers' song. (haha!) Anyway...here is a prayer! “Father God, it IS a GREAT feeling to be alive! It is only in YOU that we live and move and have our being! THANK YOU, Abba Dad, for LIFE through Your Son! Jesus, we love and worship You, and we thank You for giving us Your life so we can live! Praise You! Abba Dad, breathe Your intimate life upon each one of us today. I pray that Your very life would pulsate throughout our being! I pray that life – Your abundant life – would pulsate through our veins and Your very heartbeat would cause our hearts to beat passionately for You and for others. Oh, Abba Dad, I pray that Your very heartbeat and Your very breath would breathe life into the dry bones of our lives. Wherever we have dry bones in our lives I pray for those dry bones to come alive. Oh, Lord, THANK YOU! Thank You for Your life! Thank You for Your heartbeat that pulsates true life through us! Thank You for the deep, deep intimacy that You provide through Your life! You are SO WORTHY of our praise and we give it to You without reservation! We love You, Lord! In Jesus' name. Amen!
Good Morning, Lord. Thank You for this new day. Lord, thank You that Your mercies are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness! I give You all the praise that is due Your name! I love and worship You, Lord! You are magnificent and majestic and it is an honor to serve You. And, Father, I thank You that we are also so privileged to be called Your children. Thank You that You are our loving Father. As Your child, I come to You, Abba Dad, and I lift up my website visitors. Father, love on them. Abba Dad, hold them close to Your heart today and help them to sense Your nearness. Mmmm...thank You, Abba Dad, for Your nearness and Your deep and intimate love for all of us. Father, whatever needs we have today, please show us Your ability to meet those needs. Please provide for us in ways that bring much glory to Your name. Thank You, God, that Your Word tells us that our God shall supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Lord, Your Word also tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Lord, we all need wisdom. Please give us wisdom today and everyday as we all continue to fear You. And, Lord, as we continue to seek Your face, please shine on us in deeply personal ways. Lord, put Your mighty hand of protection on us and put a hedge of protection around us. Protect us from demonic attacks and from all that is not of You, Lord. Keep us safe and healthy. And, Healer God, I ask that You would breathe on anyone that needs Your healing and heal them in Jesus' name. God, I claim bodies as the Temple of the Holy Spirit! Thank You, God! Thank You, Lord, that You are the Healer. And thank You, Lord, that You are our hope and Savior. You are mighty to save, Lord, and Your arm is not too short to save those that need to be saved. I praise You for what You are able to do and I ask You to draw the people we love near to You and that they would completely surrender their lives to You as their Savior and Lord. And Lord, I pray that ALL of us would continue to daily surrender to You in every area of our lives. And as we do, I pray for Your Divine favor upon us. Please put Your hand of favor upon each of Your children. I pray that Your favor upon us would be thick. I pray that Your strong hand of favor would rest upon us in thick and wonderfully surprising ways. Please Divinely provide “God-connections” for us that will thrust us forward in Your plans for us. Thank You, God. Lord, You are amazing. Your goodness for us is so incredibly vast that we cannot even begin to understand the depths of Your goodness. And Your love for us is so incredibly deep that we cannot even begin to understand the depths of Your love. Thank You, Abba Dad, for loving us and for being a good Father to us. We love You, Lord. May You glorify Your name today through all of us. In Jesus' name. Amen.
God, Put Me to Bed
