"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Been out of commission for a bit.....

Last week was a rough one for me both physically and emotionally. Praying this week will be better as my body and mind regain their strength. Thank you all for your comments from my previous post!

Oh Lord, give me the strength both spiritually and physically to do the work you have called me to do.
Renew in me the gift of prophecy, that I may abound in visions and revelations; clearly seeing Your Face and hearing Your Voice, Oh Heavenly Father.
Add to me spiritual virtue that I may abound in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness and faith, Oh God.
Send to me Your Holy Ghost with an abundance of wisdom, understanding, and knowledge that I may bring forth words capable of uplifting the souls of your people who are downtrodden and discouraged, Oh God.
Cleanse my soul and life from all sin and iniquities that I may minister unto others without being guilty of hypocrisy and shame, Oh Lord.
Make me to be healthy in body and sound of mind so that I may have the strength and fortitude to pen Your words to Your children, Oh Gracious and Precious Heavenly Father.


  1. It is amazing, you are only asking God for spiritual things. Things money can't buy.
    Meaningful things.

  2. Praying with you, and for you dear.

  3. JBR, will be praying for you. But I will borrow your prayer for myself too. Hugs

  4. prayng with you too. He will honor your prayer. It's the cry of your heart. Sarah

  5. Hope this is a much better week for you!

  6. Welcome back to the world. Missed you these past few days. God will give you his strength to press on.

  7. You rely on God for EVERYTHING. That's a nice place to be, even though you might be sitting there in pain. God will never let you down. When you're weak, He's strong. Take care.

  8. Thank you for the very heartfelt note you left for me. YOU will bring meaning to YOUR life, with the power of the Holy Spirit guiding you. You are blessed, dear friend, and "the Lord hears the cry of the poor, blessed be the Lord." He will never abandon you. Please pray for me as I pray for you.

    In Christ,

  9. I have been studying PHilip Yanceys book on prayer and he suggests that during times of spiritual dryness or fatigue we can rely on the words and faith of others. Reading the Psalms out loud or buying a beautiful book of written prayers can be a relief...we pray the words that we cannot bring ourselves to utter in our condition. I thought it was excellent advice

  10. Standing with you in prayer and believing HE will indeed heal your heart, body, and soul! You will be fully restored. He is using you to help so many others and will continue to do so.
    Blessings, andrea

  11. What a neat prayer. I can see God blessing everyone here today who reads your prayer with you.

    I love Peeps' personal prayers, as much as I love Gratitude.

    God post, thanks JBR! (I meant "good post", but decided to leave it as written!)

    PEACE, girl!

  12. JBR:

    So glad you are recovering at least a little bit. The quiet voice of God is hard to hear in the tumult of daily life, your dedication to finding it is an inspiration. Praying for healing to come your way!

  13. Hey you! I hopes your health returns quickly. Feel better.

  14. may your prayers be heard. and may this week be a blessing to you.

  15. In whatever we do, let us give glory to God and find our strength in Him. "...whoever serves, as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ..." 1 Peter 4:11

  16. Here with your other prayer warriors praying up a storm for you. God will do mighty things with the outcome of this present trial. God Bless.

    JBR you hang in there! I'm proud of you. Feel better.

  18. Do not thy medical doctor neglect.

  19. What a beautiful prayer and one to which I'd like to add an Amen! I hope you're feeling better. :)

  20. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful uplifting prayer. I can see how intimate you want to grow closer to your Lord. that's what it's all about. Intimacy.

  21. "Lord give me strength." Yep, that's probably been my most common prayer throughout my life. I also pray that He will give you renewal and strength. Rest when you need to--it's as important as the work. (((((((JBR)))))))

  22. JBR, you have such a strength within you. It is ok to sometimes take a deep breath. Please be gentle with yourself. You can be so very proud of yourself and your determination. Hugs to you

  23. Amen! I love that you pray for the prophetic gift. We're supposed to desire it, so why do I keep forgetting to ask?

  24. Prayed with you. God bless you JBR! I agree with sister Deborah, we forget to ask! "We don't have because we don't ask!"...

  25. JBR, I will keep you in my prayers!
    So loved your prayer!

    I will be gone from blogging for a while and will miss my visits here as I always find inspiration in your posts!
    Till I return take very good care of your special self!
    Hope to be back sooner than later!

    God speed you on your way!
    God bless and blessings!


  26. JBR,

    Praying for you sweetie that God will refresh and renew you during this time of rest!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  27. Welcome back. Take care of yourself. You're missed when you're not blogging, but I'd rather know you're doing what you need to do for you!
