Prayer: Adventure of a Lifetime

Hearts and People♥ We Never Adventure Alone

We know that God hears us
We have a loving Heavenly Father
We have the best coach, Jesus
We have the best guide, the Holy Spirit
We have nothing to lose, everything to gain

We worship and praise God
We keep our eyes on Him
We confess and forgive
We receive His grace
We help and serve
We leave a trail
We keep going

We hope
We believe
We have peace
We travel lighter
We lay our burdens down
We share the burdens of others
We see God's answers to our prayers
We watch the miracles He works in our lives
We know Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

Prayer brings us closer to God
Prayer gives us hope and joy
Prayer takes us to the cross
Prayer lightens our load
Prayer encourages us
Prayer protects us
Prayer equips us
Prayer frees us

We trust
We try
We sing
We cry
We laugh
We wait

We go to new places in our spiritual walk
We see new things in new ways
We keep our eyes on God
We think differently
We listen to Him
We are honest
We change
We grow

The Road

We go the distance. Sometimes we take baby steps. Then we walk, and soon we run. But at times we crawl, we limp or we stumble. But there is always God's promise to sustain us, God's hand to lift us, God's arm to steady us, God's love to heal us. There are dark times, when we can't see or we're afraid. But there is hope and assurance when God lights the way and shows us the next step, when He makes our path level and straight. Wherever it may take us–ups and downs, mountains and valleys, deserts and gardens, droughts and storms, rest stops and lookout points–we can stop, be still, hear God speak, and know He is up ahead.

God leads us
God is with us
We will never be alone
God is behind us and before us
The longer we walk, the stronger we are
Prayer revives us when life tires us
We will never regret the journey

♥ Women, are we ready to live out the adventure of a lifetime?!

Prayer Is Connecting With God

Hearts and People♥ There is nothing like having a real, true and personal relationship with God…

♥ It's only by His grace and His gift to us of faith, that any of us do

Because of what Christ Our Savior has done for us, we have an intimate, direct connection to God. Not only can we talk to Him, we can actually be in His presence–with Him!

In the Bible it says that we can come to Him, and that He will be with us. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to live within those who trust and hope in Christ as their Savior.

The Holy Spirit helps us to pray, both alone and with others, to the Lord. What a privilege it is that we can go to God and communicate with Him in different ways.

He wants to listen to us and love us so intimately! We can develop a passion for prayer that will strengthen us, give us peace, and bring us joy–anywhere, anytime, any way.

The Truth About Prayer

Hearts and People♥ We'll never regret the moments we get to spend with God….

♥  Prayer is a Way of Living

And, prayer is always life changing, for everyone involved! Conversation with the Lord God is truly an incredible thing. We can develop a passion for prayer that will strengthen us, give us peace, and bring us joy–anywhere, anytime, any way.

♥  The Miracle of Prayer

God created prayer, and He created us to pray! Prayers are personal and unique. No two conversations are alike, right? How do we talk with God, to ask Him, thank Him, love Him, and listen to Him in prayer? Here, we post ideas, articles, verses, quotes, and resources for inspiration.

♥  The Privilege of Prayer

What a privilege that we can go to God and communicate with Him in different ways. By His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ opened the way for us to come before the Lord God as His daughters, and for the Holy Spirit to live within us as our Counselor. This is by faith and through prayer, in Jesus' name.

We can encourage each other To truly know God, to love Him and To be with Him in prayer.

♥  Our God Who Hears, and Speaks

Whatever the situation–quiet moments of rest, exciting events, private time with someone we love, seasons of sadness or struggle–when we pray, the Lord is there to listen. And to speak. He knows us and loves us so intimately.

We hear and understand God through the Holy Spirit and the Bible, an incredible love story! One profound way to pray is to speak verses to yourself or to others.

♥  Inspiration for the Journey

Jesus, teach us to pray and to remember that "Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work," as Oswald Chambers wrote. We love to read the words and take in the images that describe the incredible blessings, experiences, and necessity of prayer. Do you have something to share?

If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d go out into a great big field alone or into the deep, deep woods, and I’d look up into the sky–up–up– up–into that lovely blue sky that looks like there’s no end to its blueness And then I’d just feel a prayer. ~L.M. Montgomery

What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul. ~Corrie ten Boom
