Prayer Devotional: Day 16

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.” – Lamentations 3:24 NIV

When the Holy Spirit impresses us to donate to a nonprofit that helps those in need, He works on our hearts.

Instead of saying to ourselves that we don’t have enough money to donate to charity, we can focus on the infinite inheritance that God has in store for us. Even on earth He blesses us with abundance.

Try it! Pay it forward and see how that Lord makes a difference. We can all contribute a little. The Lord knows we are waiting for Him, and He is welcoming us with open arms. Amen.

P.S. Today the Holy Spirit moved me to donate to the Amara Cares nonprofit, which delivers care packages to the needy in third-world countries. Pay it forward! Donate here to the same charity or another that God inspires you to give to. God Bless!

Prayer Devotional: Day 8

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV

When God blesses us with financial stability, we can tithe knowing that our money comes from the Lord, and we are giving back a portion of what He has already given to us.

We can be proud that we have money to tithe!

The Lord shows us every time we give back that He will pour out more blessings upon us. He rewards our faith. Amen.

Prayer Devotional: Day 4

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. – Deuteronomy 28:1 NIV

When my son follows the instructions I give him, I praise his efforts. Likewise, when we follow God’s law, He is pleased with us. Not because we are trying to earn our way into heaven by doing good deeds, but rather because He can tell how much we love Him when we follow Him.

God’s law is not a burden on us. It is there for a reason: to strengthen and to guide us.

When the Lord rewards us, it is not necessarily with wealth and prestige, although sometimes He does give His faithful servants prosperity.

The Lord has many ways of setting us above. For example, He gives us freedom of speech. He does not command us to follow laws like a taskmaster. He allows us to choose each day whom we shall serve. Following Him is always a great choice. Amen.

Prayer Devotional: Day 1

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. – 2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV

Sometimes blessings come after big transitions. As much as we may resist change, we still have to accept it and realize that the Lord brings about change for a reason.

Maybe He calls us to start a new job or move to another state. Perhaps He asks us to set better boundaries and take better care of ourselves.

When the Lord calls us to change something about our lives and we listen and follow through, we see the benefits in our work. Abundance is not a mystical thing, because all good things come from the Lord. He blesses us abundantly if we are willing to accept His calling for our lives. Amen.

Day 329


And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. – 2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV


God always gives us what we need,  but not necessarily what we want. What we want isn’t always what is best for us.


Because the Lord is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, He can see what is in our future.


He blesses us abundantly, more than we can ask or think. When life is not going according to plan, we can stop and ask God to show us what He has in mind for us. Amen.

Day 323


Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalms 37:4 NIV

The Lord gives His children good gifts. When we adopt a scarcity mindset, we forget what God has already given us. He creates in us a new heart, and as our thoughts are transformed, we begin to see the abundance more clearly.


Our hearts begin to desire to do good as we become more like Jesus. He is the best role model that we can have. The Lord is not a fairy godmother who magically grants us our heart’s desire. He calls us to stay close to Him, and as we pray and trust Him day by day, our hearts are uplifted and things fall into place for us. Amen.

Day 254

For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. – Romans 8:29 KJV

God has a purpose for all of us. He even had a purpose for Jesus before Jesus was born. The Lord knew that Jesus would be the Savior of the world. 

The image of Jesus was a humble one. He was born into poverty and placed into a manger. Most of us can say that we were at least born at a hospital, not in a barn!

When we start to think that we have to be more like other people to be successful, we can remember that we are the children of God. It doesn’t get better than that! Amen.

Day 253

Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” – Numbers 13:30 NIV

The Lord is a God of possibilities. He didn’t promise the children of Israel land that they could not possess. He promised them land that He knew they were meant to live in. They took a look at the people who currently lived in the land flowing with milk and honey and declared it impossible to take over. They had so little faith!

How often do we question what God has promised us? How often do we doubt the richness and joy we will have in Heaven? Do material possessions matter here on earth? The Lord knows we need things, and when it matters, He always provides for us, or He shows us what we can appreciate more about what we already have. He doesn’t ask us to manifest wealth, because He has already promised the world to us. We just have to follow Him and trust that everything will work out. Amen.

Day 235

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. – Psalm 37:4 KJV

When we seek the Lord first, everything adds up for us. We don’t have to make long lists of things we want, and monetary goals, because money doesn’t buy happiness. 

When we delight in the Lord, not only does He bless us, but also everything that He wants for us works out perfectly. We don’t have to worry about money, because He has already met all our needs. When we seek His face, everything falls into place. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 222

Day 222

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV

God loves us so much that He gives us an inheritance and a covenant. When God blessed Abraham, He asked Abraham to move, and to go to the land that He promised. 

I received the keys to my new house on 4/9/21, and I couldn’t help but marvel at how much the Lord has given me. I wanted a safe place to live, and He delivered more than I could ask or think. 

We have hope that we will be with our Heavenly Father forever, and the relationship continues no matter where we are.

We have faith that Jesus saves us, heals us, and blesses us. We are incredibly fortunate to have a loving God who provides for all our needs. Amen.
