The Prayer of My Heart


“Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!” (Psalm 66:20 )

I lay in bed this morning contemplating whether I should get up or not.  My grandchildren are in school full-time and the little girl I watch is at home with her mommy, over the next six weeks, getting to know her new baby sister.  There is no urgency to rush out of bed to get ready…except “The Prayer of My Heart”.

I felt a strong need to get up and concentrate on what lies heaviest on my heart.

One of my thoughts as I lay there was, “Read the Bible searching for what God has to say on the subject.  Concentrate on this prayer as you read and let God’s word be your guide.”

I got up and began my quiet time…this is the first devotional that I read;

Recharged, Not Disconnected

God met me this morning when I got up and walked in obedience to Him.  I did not continue to lay there begging for a few more minutes of sleep.  I got up and followed the promptings of the Spirit.

“The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness…” (Romans 8:26)

As I followed my normal quiet time routine, God continued to reveal Himself to me…He blessed my quiet time and brought His peace into my morning.

If you know my story, you know that I was not always the spiritual Mom, and just so you know I am also suffering the consequences for my disobedience during that time.  He has forgiven me, but the situation is not totally redeemed.

“Grace reminds me that I am limited, but God is limitless.

Grace reminds me that God provides in creative and extravagant ways, and that every reminder that I am not enough I hear Him whisper I am the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

And I am at peace.”

I am at peace because, thank God, it is not up to me…it is up to God to redeem the situation. The Prayer of My Heart is in His hands!

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
