March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Connected “.


Dear Lord,

You’re Word tells us not be unequally yoked. We know that light has no business with darkness and that bad company ruins good morals so we pray that you would disconnect us from those that have no business in our lives. Disconnect us from the wolves in sheep skin. Disconnect us from the World and connect us back to you.

Deliver us dear Lord from evil. Whether it be in the form of an addiction that only seem like a “bad habit”. Take that taste from our mouth.

Help us to stay connected to you dear Lord. You are the source of our life! Without you we are nothing.

I pray that my friend reading this now would connect with you in a such a way tonight that it would change their life!

I pray that you would give them  such a power surge that they would be filled up and ready to go hard the next day.

Lord we love you! You are so good to us! You are everything we need!

We love you Lord and we ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

March Prayer Journal |Fruitful

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Fruitful”.


Dear Lord,

Your word says that you can tell a tree by it’s fruits. In the same way that we can look at apple and determine that it belongs to an apple tree, I pray others may be able to look at my characteristics and determine that I am a child of God.

Forgive me for not exercising the fruits of the Spirit all the time, and for not even trying to most of the time. I pray that you would help me to repent and to do better.

I pray that you would help me to exercise self-control. I struggle with being impulsive and that behavior gets me into a lot of trouble. I pray that I would be kind and gentle and not harsh and brash . I pray that would be a peacemaker and not a gossiper. Help me Lord to be Holy, set apart, for your glory.

I pray that you would help the person reading this as well. Help them in the areas of the fruit of the Spirit that they may struggle with as well. I pray that you would give them the opportunity to do better. I believe that practice helps and the more that we practice the fruits, the more they will become apart of us.

I thank you for what you are about to do in our lives.

I ask that all of these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name, amen.

 

March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Forgiveness “.


Dear Lord,

Forgive me for my sins. For the ones that I know that I am doing and consistently do, help me to repent and to not do them anymore. Forgive me for the sins that I commit and do not realize is a sin. Open my eyes and correct my steps, in Jesus name.

Lord, help me to forgive others. Your word tells me that if I do not forgive those who have sinned against me, that you would not forgive me.

Help me to forgive myself. Time after time after time I screw up and I miss the mark that I have set for myself. I know that your standards are the only standards that matter.

I pray for the person reading this today. Give them the strength to practice forgiveness as well. Heal their broken hearts. Wash them white as snow. Forgive them for their sins. Help them to repent and never do them again.

I pray that we would be great examples to our children and that we would live lifes before them in a way that is pleasing to you.

I ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Trust”.


Dear Lord,

I trust you! I trust you to be the captain of my life and the anchor of my soul.

I pray that I am able to guard my heart and not be so trusting to man when your word tells us not to trust them ( Psalms 118:8), but to trust you. You are my refuge, you are my hiding place, you are my father, you are sovereign and you know what’s best for me.

I pray that when the times comes and I am in a relationship that trust would be there because he has you in his heart.

I pray that I would be able to trust you. I pray that I would allow you to take total control over my life and over Gia’s life as well.

I pray that the way Gia trusts me, she would trust you even more. I pray that she would cling to you the way that she clings to me.

I pray for my single mom friend reading this. I pray that she would trust you with her life and her child’s life as well. I pray that she would allow you take total control over her situation.

I pray that you would open our eyes to anyone that we trust that we ought not. I pray that you would reveal their hearts to us and that our eyes would be open.

I pray that your Holy Spirit would be with me and my friend reading this, on today. Be with us and speak to us concerning our prayers.

We love you Lord and we ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

Stand Strong

IMG_20160527_125639I get it, Mama, I do. Sometimes we get weak and weary and every day feels like a Monday, and it seems like the weekend is too short. But I want to encourage you today to tap into that supernatural strength provided to you from our Heavenly Father.

Vent to Him and let him know that you may not be looking forward to this week at work. Let him know that you are struggling financially and need some open doors. Let Him know that your child is almost two and she is running up a MUCK!! Haha.. OK sorry, those are my issues. But you know what I mean. Share your heart with the Lord and then

Stand strong in the Lord.

Stand strong with your head held high and flex those muscles a bit. Let those problems know that your God is Greater! Let that ol devil know that he has no power over you. Wipe those tears from your eye and get back to work! Do not worry, be strong, and know that EVERYTHING is going to be OK.

Throwback Thursday |Pregnant Mama Winn

I didn’t even look like it til I was 8 months!

ThrowbackThursday3Lucky me!!

I was just few months shy of graduating from Bethune-Cookman, in Daytona Beach, FL, and all of the “Mama feels” were happening.

Up until my last trimester I didn’t have any “real” issues. I didn’t have morning sickness, I barely had cravings and my baby bump was not noticeable. I should mention that it went unnoticed for a while because I wore loose clothing. That was my style at the time and so no one thought anything of it.

But GIRL!! When that last trimester came around, I turned into a different beast! Like I spoke my mind and if ANYONE annoyed me in class or whatever, they knew about it. My daily prayer was , “Lord, help me to hold my tongue.” Like for real, for real! Not only that, but I was ALWAYS hungry.

For my birthday I went to Ihop and I asked the server to seat me all the way in the back so I could eat in peace. Not only that, but I knew I was about to pig out and I did! I must’ve ordered a carafe of orange juice, 4 pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, fruit and maybe hash browns! I ordered it and ate it all!! The only thing I brought home with me was a small to go cup for the rest of my OJ, but other than that, I was as full as a tick. When I got home, better believe that I went straight to bed and slept well!!

Haha!!!

How was your pregnancy? Do you miss the baby bump? ( I do! )
