Happy New Year, Love Sheila!

Happy New Year!

2015 is going to be the BEST YEAR of your life! We are going to PRAY, PRAY, and PRAY!

Take a look at Psalm 126. I highlighted some of the most wonderful of God’s words. We are going to pray your 2015 be so full of God that you think you are living a dream!

Psalm 126 (Message)

It seemed like a dream, too good to be true,
when God returned Zion’s exiles.
We laughed, we sang,
we couldn’t believe our good fortune.
We were the talk of the nations—
“God was wonderful to them!”
God was wonderful to us;
we are one happy people.
And now, God, do it again—
bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
So those who planted their crops in despair
will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
So those who went off with heavy hearts
will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.

Love,
Sheila

Day 11 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

Thank You for the gift of “IT IS FINISHED.” The very last words of our Savior on the cross were, “It is finished” meaning PAID IN FULL.  Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (John 19:30) The debt owed to You was completely PAID IN FULL. What a GIFT! The debt of our sin has been wiped away completely. I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you. (Isaiah 44:22) ALL my sister needs to do is REPENT and walk in Your Ways. (Righteousness) Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19) There is NOTHING more that Your daughter needs to do to “earn” her way back to You. She needs to know to “rest” from the striving. Father, I so love the second part to the verse above “…that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” The Greek word used here for “refreshing” means “the recovery of breath.” You will REVIVE her back to life!

I pray, as Your daughter quits striving to earn Your love, that You breathe life back into her heart, mind, soul, and body. Revive her back to life just as in Ezekiel when it was prophesied for DRY BONES TO HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD AND COME BACK TO LIFE! I pray the same for Your daughter. May this verse be the gift You give her this day! Knit these verses into her heart!  The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.  I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’” (Ezekiel 37:1-6)

Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! God is bring His daughter back to LIFE! AMEN!

Take a breath my sister and REST in the finished work of Christ!

IT IS FINISHED! (John 19:30)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 10 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

Thank You for the gift of YOUR UNSEEN HAND. We are incredibly blessed You move mightily on behalf of Your children. You set things in motion, You set things right, and You set things in order with YOUR UNSEEN HAND. You work day and night to make sure Your daughter is secure, loved, and protected. May my sister’s eyes meditate on the promise You will not let her slip or fall. YOUR UNSEEN HAND will provide and protect: I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip, he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you, the Lord is your shade at your right hand. (Psalm 121:1-5) When she cries out You move to save and deliver! Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! (Psalm 31:2)

YOUR UNSEEN HAND is always upon Your daughter as are Your eyes. For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. (2 Chronicles 16:9) IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, may YOUR UNSEEN HAND move today to strengthen my sister’s broken, bruised, and tired heart! Thank you that You reach down from the Heavens and attend to Your children out of devotion and love. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. (2 Samuel 22:17-20) YOUR UNSEEN HAND is open not closed. You reach out with Your power and have ALL capabilities to do the impossible for Your daughter. I pray YOUR HAND gives her direction, guidance, and deliverance this holiday season and ALWAYS.

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. (Exodus 14:14)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 9 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

Thank You for the gift of YOUR PRESENCE. The promise that You will “never leave nor forsake” us has been most comforting to me. There have been times when I didn’t know how I was going to open my eyes to another day when I remembered I have YOU. I ask, in the NAME OF JESUS, You make Your Holy Presence tangibly known to my sweet friend today! She needs You near. I pray Psalm 16:11 for my sister today:

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

“My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”  (Exodus 33: 14)

Savor Your day with God!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 8 of the 12 Days of Prayer

 Join our prayer family to the right of this blog!

Father,

I pray in THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, You gift my friend with GREAT FAITH. There have been times when her faith has been shaken. There have been days Your child has struggled to believe. This is crippling to Your daughter’s relationship with You. How can we overcome this? The way that seems best is to not focus overwhelmingly on our FAITH but to remember YOUR FAITHFULNESS! Believing that “if we had more FAITH our prayers would be answered” sure puts a strain in the weary heart! I pray we learn to believe in YOUR FAITHFULNESS above all. This will be how we grow in GREAT FAITH. Amen!

You are “abounding in love and faithfulness.” You have all the FAITHFULNESS Your daughter needs. (Exodus 34:6) Your FAITHFULNESS has no limits! The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. (Psalm 145:13) Our first step to GREAT FAITH is to believe YOU! What I want my friend to most believe today is in Hebrews 11:1. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. I pray my sweet friend believes in the answer to her prayer even though it is not seen yet. WHY? Because without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please You. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Father, take my sister’s tiny mustard seed of faith and develop her in to a MIGHTY WOMAN OF FAITH. “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20) May she overcome her unbelief with GREAT FAITH in YOU! (Mark 9:24) Why? All things are POSSIBLE for one who believes. (Mark 9:23)

I pray my sister see the IMPOSSIBLE in her life become POSSIBLE this holiday season!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 7 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

You are magnificent! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his majesty is above earth and heaven. (Psalm 148:13) Your thoughts toward Your daughter are too many to count. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.  (Psalm 139: 17-18) You are thinking of her this very minute.

Father, Your daughter has a dream buried in the bottom of her heart. You gave this dream to her many years ago. Sadly, she has given up on it. Satan has been tenacious in His battle against this. In the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, I ask You to give Your daughter the SPIRITUAL STRENGTH to pick this dream back up and run her race. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Hebrews 12:1) This dream belongs to You and Your daughter. May no weapon coming against it prosper. May Your gift to her of SPIRITUAL STRENGTH bring the Power of Christ Jesus into her struggle. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

May she pursue YOU and this dream with all her heart! (Jeremiah 29:13) AMEN!

Sister, today is your day to “Write it down and make it plain.” Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. (Habakkuk 2:2) Write the dream God gave you down on a piece of paper. Fold the paper up. Place it in a decorative holiday gift bag. Put it under a Christmas Tree and give back to God for Christmas the gift of “PURSING YOUR DREAM” with all your heart.

May all Your dreams come true IN CHRIST JESUS.

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 6 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

Thank You for Your kind heart. Your KINDNESS toward us is extremely overwhelming. It is a true gift. You have never given us what we actually deserve. (Ephesians 2:3-5) No, You have always been exceedingly gracious and merciful. We are so very, very grateful. (Psalm 23:6) Our hearts are not towards You out of fear; no it is Your KINDNESS, greatness, holiness, and Your patience with us that has made us feel secure in Your love.

It is Your kindness which leads to repentance. Do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? (Romans 2:4) You daughter can trust in your kindness, goodness, and excellence of character, ALWAYS! Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. (Psalm 143:8)

During this 12 Days of Prayer, Your child is receiving many spiritual gifts to prepare her for Your Kingdom work, miracles, and her spiritual transformation. Therefore, it is only appropriate we bow before You this moment to make it a HOLY MOMENT of repentance, reverence, and adoration before You.  As we arise, made holy, spotless, blameless, and new by the blood of the Lamb; may You be pleased with Your daughter’s obedient heart. (Ephesians 5:27 and 2 Corinthians 5:17) May this act of repentance and obedience be a gift to You, Father. Your KINDNESS is a gift that deserves reciprocating. Amen and Amen!

But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:4-5)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 5 of 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

Thank you for the gift of WISDOM. You must think WISDOM is one very important gift since You were pleased with Solomon for requesting it to govern Your people.  ”Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” (2 Chronicles 1:10) Your daughter needs Your wisdom to govern her heart, her needs, her desires, and Your perfect will for her life. Wisdom is needed to find out the answer to how she can cooperate with Your plan for moving her life in the direction of wholeness, abundance, and freedom. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5)

Along with WISDOM came more than Solomon could ever dream!

God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.” (2 Chronicles 1:11-12)

Father, sometimes in Your infinite wisdom You answer a prayer with WISDOM instead of an overnight miracle or a supernatural parting of their Red Sea. Sometimes WISDOM is the most valuable gift of all since it gets to the ROOT of a problem which grants everlasting freedom and peace for generations to come. In the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, I ask You to give Your daughter the WISDOM You have been desiring to give her to battle her giant, defeat her overpowering enemy, and overcome what seems impossible to deal with. The gift of YOUR WISDOM will be Your love sweetly wrapped up in a bow this holiday season for my sister!

I also ask, after WISDOM has shattered her chains, that You bless Your daughter with ALL she can ever dream of just as You did for King Solomon.

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.  Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:6-7)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 4 of the 12 Days of Prayer

Father,

In a manger many years ago was born my friend’s Savior. Your SonThe Prince of Peace. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6) Her Prince rules with Peace. She desperately needs this peace to rule in her heart. Your daughter is ridden with guilt, anxiety, fear, regret, and disappointment. Her mind and heart are under attack. She feels suffucated. The enemy is keeping her from the “peace that surpasses all understanding.” (Philippians 4:7) Her heart is tossing to and fro from her own internal storm. The Prince of Peace has all authority to speak to this storm and it will obey. And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:39) Much in her life is our of order. The chaos needs to be replaced with Your perfect peace. For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. (1 Corinthians 14:33) Speak to her storm Prince of Peace!

Your daughter has only known peace superficially. They heal the brokenness of the daughter of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ But there is no peace. (Jeremiah 8:11 NASB) In the Name of Jesus, we ask for a supernatural miracle intervention of peace in her heart and situation. I smile knowing You will not fail her. I am looking forward to the testimony of her exhaling and breathing from relief. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10) You care! Give Your daughter the confidence she needs to notice and cherish Your peace. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. (Isaiah 32:17) May the Prince of Peace envelop her beautiful heart this holiday season and we will give you all the praise, honor and glory.

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]. (Colossians 3:15) AMP

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila
