Your Greatness is a Song of Hope.

“Generation after generation will declare more of your greatness and declare more of your glory.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145:4‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Heavenly Father,

You are our Lord and Savior,

You died at the Cross, forgave those who sinned against you, and resurrected on the third day to offer us eternal life,

You are a Light to those who are blind-folded by temptations and a compass to those who are sleepless in the wilderness,

You march closely with the broken-hearted, heal the wounds from past misfortunes, and revive our souls from shattered dreams,

You relentlessly maneuver the heights of steep mountains and execute magnificent, prized miracles in our ordinary lives!

You are a beacon in the midst of chaos and the matchless hope for today’s helpless world,

You are worthy of praise, Abba Father (Ps 145:3). Your generous hand is filled with promises and your heart sings distinct melodies of joy and hope,

I’m telling the world about all the phenomenal acts you do every day.

You are an amazing God!

Your never-ending grace, unfailing love, and unmerited favor to all generations are the manifestation of your deep love for us.

I want to witness your immeasurable greatness, power and strength in my life today and always.

Since your ‘heart tunes’ are my song of joy and hope (Psalms 59:16), I’m asking for you to always be my refuge and fortress until my last breath on earth!

In Jesus’ name, I pray

your beloved daughter.

Crossing Over.

“For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over.” Joshua 4:23 NIV

Lord,

I was recently challenged by ‘Red Sea-like’ circumstances and did not know how to proceed with the complexity of the unforeseen future. You rebuked the Red Sea and dried it up;  you saw me through the depths as through a green pasture (Psalms 106:9).

I had exhausted all options and was definitely clueless.  There were no workable solutions, fresh ideas or even a contingency plan. I felt vulnerable and hopeless. When I begged for help… “O God, come quickly to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me!” (Psalm 70:1 AMP ), you were already there comforting me. You had noticed my affliction.

Thank You, Jesus!

You strengthened me so I could embrace those overwhelming circumstances, you gave me the wisdom to explore alternate arrangements, and the discernment to navigate thru the decision-making process.

Nothing is impossible for you, Lord  (Luke 1:37).

You reassured me along the way,  you were taking care of all the details amidst the wait.

You calmed my anxious and fearful heart.

You also…

Helped me surrender all plans.

Helped me trust in the process.

Helped me walk in Faith and not by sight.

When I had intimately prayed, you allowed the circumstances to unfold over the course of time and brought closure this morning when there was a drastic shift in perspective. And, the new plan was confirmed when Your overwhelming peace overruled my heart!

Lord, I appreciate when you speak to me thru the circumstances and people!

Your tender love for me continues on forever and I know that so well. I know you will dry up the Red Sea so I may cross over it once again. 

Lead the way, Jesus!

In Jesus’ name, I praise

Amen.

God’s awesome presence.

“If you bow low in God’s awesome presence, he will eventually exalt you as you leave the timing in his hands.” 1 Peter 5:6 TPT

Abba Father,

You are always opening up new frontiers. I  will relax, be humble and allow you to conquer the world on my behalf (Exodus 14:14). You are in charge of all life happenings (Psalm 46:10). 

Forgive me if I attempt to hurry things up. As you know, I am impatient and don’t mind wrestling with you at times! I also know you don’t appreciate when I anticipate or imagine the worst (Matthew 6:25). Forgive me if I have worried way too often in the recent past.

You speak to me in all circumstances. 

When an incoming email calms my heart, you reassure me I’m on track… when a photo exhibits a friendship, your heart is on display and I know I’m loved…when a neighbor assists me, your commitment is manifested and I no longer feel helpless…when strangers are kind, I know you deeply care… when I‘m excited about training, I know you want me to grow and reach my potential… when I hear a ‘warning’ from law enforcement, I know you want me to be on alert, on guard and honor your celestial ways on earth.

Lord, I know you are managing all of my affairs relentlessly and faithfully. I truly appreciate how you are orchestrating all life events on my behalf.

Help me ‘be still’ (Psalm 46:10). Your palpable presence is appreciated and I know you are cheering me along the way. 

You make everything beautiful in your perfect time  (Psalm 18:30). You are an awesome God! I love you with all of my heart, soul, and mind. (Matthew 22:37)

Your beloved and faithful servant.

A New Season in Life

Holy Prayer #8 New Season

“I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word, I put my hope.”
Psalm 130:5 NIV

Lord,

You are always enlightening me with encouraging thoughts and teachings. I treasure the lessons learned in the midst of irritating trials.

It was rough while I waited for a breakthrough I admit. I wrestled and even questioned your plans. You heard my cries of distress and understood my troubled heart. You even shut quite a few doors along the way. Please, forgive me if I was headstrong.


I thank you today for opening up a new season in life!

Show me ‘how to’ expectantly wait, be willing and open-minded during the wait. Help me grow, Lord, one day at a time.

You inspire my soul and strengthen my heart. You are an unwavering God! Your miraculous plan is valued.

Your servant is listening attentively at sunrise and aligning her perspectives in life with your commands.

Don’t give up. Don’t be impatient. Be brave and courageous. Never lose hope (Psalm 27:14).

It’s bittersweet to let go of a season and begin walking towards a different path.
Give me vitality and stamina to waltz into a new journey and finish strong.

I have been secured in your faithfulness always (Psalm 37:3).

In Jesus’ name, I pray,

Your beloved daughter, Adriana.

~Spanish Version ~

“Espero al SEÑOR, todo mi ser espera, y en su palabra, espero” Salmo 130: 5 NVI

Señor, Siempre me estás iluminando con pensamientos y enseñanzas alentadoras. Atesoro las lecciones aprendidas en medio de pruebas irritantes.

Fue duro mientras esperaba un avance lo admito. Luché e incluso cuestioné tus planes. Escuchaste mis gritos de angustia y entendiste mi corazón atribulado. Incluso cerraste bastantes puertas en el camino. Por favor, perdóname si fui testaruda.
¡Te agradezco esta noche por abrir una nueva temporada en la vida!

Muéstrame cómo esperar con expectación, estar dispuesta y de mente abierta durante la espera. Ayúdame a crecer, Señor, un día a la vez.

Tú inspiras mi alma y fortaleces mi corazón. ¡Eres un Dios inquebrantable! Tu plan milagroso es valorado.

Tu sirvienta escucha atentamente este amanecer y alinea sus perspectivas en la vida con tus órdenes.

No te rindas. No seas inpaciente. Sé valiente. Nunca pierdas la esperanza (Salmo 27:14).

Es agridulce abandonar una temporada y comenzar a caminar hacia un camino diferente.

Dame vitalidad y resistencia para bailar el vals en un nuevo viaje y terminar fuerte.
Estoy siempre seguro de tu fidelidad (Salmo 37: 3).

En el nombre de Jesús, rezo tu amada hija, Adriana.
