Sometimes when I’m out prayer walking, I will come around a corner and meet someone coming the opposite direction.  No doubt they hear my voice … they might also see me talking and moving my hands around as if I’m talking with Someone who is walking right alongside me.  He is, they just can’t see Him.  He’s so real, so present!

On this particular day, I walked past a runner … we both smiled as we greeted one another.  Perhaps she was out Prayer Walking (click to listen) or prayer running.  And then, my phone rang (rats) and I capped off my prayer with a quick AMEN!  Short for “So be it, Lord!”

We can strike up a conversation with the Lord anywhere and anytime!  He loves to go there with us.

Not far from Mountain Home, Idaho is a little farming community called Bruneau.  In the middle of this three-street, frontier town is a church called Bruneau Community Church (BCC).  Believers gather there different times during the week and worship God together.  They know how to come together.  They understand community.  They know how to seek God’s face in prayer, because they have put their faith and trust in Him.  Mighty things are happening in very small places … His rivers run through it…

I prayed with four precious believers from BCC on Sunday night and as I drove away, I prayed this Prayer for Bruneau (click to listen).  God is preparing His Church for revival.  As the storm clouds are gathering on the horizon, rainbows are popping up everywhere. Glory to God in the Highest!

Many people are asking how we ought to live out our days with so much going on around us?  Well, prayerfully, of course.  But we find another beautiful picture in Psalm 37:3 … Dwell in the Land (click to listen)

I just got off the phone with my dear friend, Laura, who weathered the storm with her husband on Long Island. She said they may see parts of it again as it swirls back around.  All is well in their neck of the woods.  They even have electricity.

Laura’s overwhelming response is to praise the Lord for His protection!  She said at one point in the night wind was whipping in front and behind their home, but it was like they were completely sheltered in the cleft of the rock … all around them was tremendous pressure … they were safe in His protection.  They are deeply moved by the display of God’s awesome power in His creation.  Humbled, is a good word for what they are experiencing.

Father, we praise You and thank You for Your awesome, righteous power and protection.  We also praise You for every reminder that You are God, You are still on the throne and You can still get the whole world’s attention!  Get us humble.  We want a humility that opens our eyes to You.  O Lord, our heart cry is that the people, whom You love, will turn their hearts to You and acknowledge You as Lord and KingWe turn our attention to You and give You our honor and glory.  It is in Jesus Name we pray and  to Him we pledge our allegiance.  Amen.

And the people of God turned their attention to seek Him…

The Lord hatched an idea in me yesterday.  It was like a lightening bolt realization!  O my word, I have been praying about getting back into radio for the sole purpose of praying over the airwaves and then in the middle of a great conversation with my friend, Lisa Buffaloe, I realized I didn’t have to wait.  Hello!  The nose of the Lion of Judah pushed me in a direction that had never occurred to me: record and post prayers on your blog!  Really?  Can I?  Could it be that easy?  My studio, the open spaces…  I’m so excited I can’t stand it!

So, here we go…  Prayer Vision  (click to listen)  Thank You, Lord!  O Father, You are such a creative, magnificent God! I love You so much!

My greatest desire is to glorify God and to see Him receive glory.  O Lord, may every endeavor be under the direction of Your Holy Spirit…for Your glory!  Just to be Your branch, that’s what I desire!  Go God!
