Everyday, after I read Daily Guideposts and the Bible verse that goes along with the daily devotional I spend time reading the Bible. I spend a considerable about of time reading and praying for family, friends and any special concerns or needs I'm aware of. It is during that time I pray to the Holy Spirit to fill me with His love and guidance. It is from Him I receive my "daily" assignment. Some days I "find" my assignment quite by accident. One day, I thought I knew where He was leading me, and "by accident" I read the wrong verse. Not only was it not an accident, the story He wanted me to share went right along with that verse. This morning was like no different from any other morning. After reading and praying, I asked the Holy Spirit for my "assignment." I always leave my Bible open on my desk, as my computer boots up. I thought I had the verse, and prayed for direction. I turned back around and closed my Bible. I sat unbelieving what had just happened. Lord, I prayed I'll never find that verse again. What is it you want me to share this morning? I sent out my newsletter a few days ago asking for prayer requests for the new book I'm writing. All the proceeds for this book will go to Samaritan's Touch Care Center. So I asked them to pray with me that I find a publisher who will be like minded. At that very moment I was reminded about Guideposts "Prayer Request". I opened the link, and typed my request. Another window opened asking if I would like to add that link to my web site? There is much more traffic on my blog than my web site, so I added the widget here. Check it out-----you can ask for prayer any time of the day or night? How cool is that? What's ever more cool, is the Holy Spirit directed me to that site. So now you know, if you are reading this, the Lord is looking out for you today. If you have a specific prayer request, click on the link. It will take you to Guideposts site, where many prayer warriors will pray for you specifically. The Apostle Paul reminds us in I Thessalonians 5:16-17 Be joyful always; pray continually;give thanks in all circumstances, for this is god's will for you in Christ Jesus. Check out the link, pray for me. Know that I am praying for you, everyday.
