Humility is the perfect posture to embrace our Heavenly Father! Humility is commonly linked to being “below” or “lowly”, however it is simply you removing yourself out of the equation to embrace others. In other words, it is you doing an act or valuing others from a perspective of care not from selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Today, let us focus on being humbly submitted to God so that everything we do or seek is not directly about us but about him, giving our talents, skills and time because we care, we genuinely care and want to contribute to the edification of The Kingdom!
Prayer Prompt Day 13: Help me to remain humble
Scripture: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility valuing others above yourself”. – Philippians 2:3 NIV
Whew! Today has been my favorite day thus far. Did you feel the power of that prayer? I sure did. Wow! I love me some God…
Have a great Saturday!
Today is the 12th of January! I bring notice to this obvious fact because the number 12 is very significant.
- There were 12 Tribes of Israel (Exodus 24:4)
- There were 12 Disciples
- The woman with the issue of blood, bled for 12 years (Mark 5:25)
- Mannaseh became King at 12 years old and ruled Jerusalem for 55 years (2 Chronicles 33:1)
- After Jesus feed the people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, they picked up 12 basket full of broken pieces (Matthew 14:20)
What’s my point, well amazing things happen when the number 12 is used. Today, Embrace newness as things begin to shift in your life.
Prayer Prompt Day 12: Bless the works of my hands
Scripture:“May the favor of The Lord our God rest on us: establish the work of our hands for us- yes, establish the works of our hands” -Psalm 90:-17
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
It’s Thursday already? Yep, it’s Thursday. This week has flown by so fast. I am literally still soaking up all of God’s goodness from Day 9. If you’ve missed any day, be sure to go back and complete your prayers while reading the content posted. God has moved in such an amazing way this week. I’m simply in awe of his goodness.

Day 11 Prayer Prompt: You are my God, To whom I put my trust 🙌🏽
This Prompt is VERY personal for me. I have literally put my trust in God and he has showed up in a MAJOR way.
I seriously can’t thank God enough for being GOD! Now I do understand that sometimes life can get hard and difficult to manage. If you’re in THAT season, please understand that God did not create you to worry or fear. Listen to the words in Trust In You, and be confident while placing your trust in God!
Proverbs 3:5 states “Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” Practice doing just that! Trusting….
I simply love spending time in prayer! When we are intentional about seeking God, it gives us peace + boldness at the same time!
One thing I’ve learned is that there is time for everything under the sun. Scripture states: “There’s a season for everything and a time for every matter under the heavens: a time for love and a time for hating, a time for war and a time for peace.” –Ecclesiastes 3:1,8 CEB
In saying that, let’s jump to our Day 10 Prayer Prompt. Teach my heart to love and my hands to war….
Can we have a real truth moment here? How many of you are willing to be transparent and admit that sometimes, your timing is off. For me, I love to love people. That’s a gift of mine, but while I love to love people, people don’t always love me back. Because of this, I need wisdom from God on knowing when to execute my love and when to war! That’s my truth moment for today!
Enjoy this beautiful day!
Bless Me Indeed… Enlarge my Territory!
I just love the story of Jabez, a man who’s name stood for pain. In 1 Chronicles 4:10, we read the story of a one mans favor due to his simple cry out to The Lord. The scripture states he was favored, although his mother bore him in pain. He, Jabez, wanted to change what his name meant and change the trajectory of his destiny. So what did he do? He cried out to The Lord.
Scripture: “Jabez was more honored than his brothers. His mother named him Jabez, saying “I bore him in pain.” Jabez called on Israel’s God: “If only you would greatly bless me and increase my Territory. May your power go with me and keep me from trouble, so as not to cause me pain.” And God granted his request.”– 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 CEB
What I love most is the simplicity in this text! Jabez asked, God granted! It was the BEST scriptural punch line ever! Just as Jabez was favored, you too my friend is also favored! Open up your mouth and cry out to The Lord.
Day 9 Prayer Prompt: Bless me Indeed…
In the words of Lauryn Hill “It could all be so simple….but you rather make it hard”. Instead of the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, some of us suffer from the Miseducation of Elohim! Elohim is another name for God which means infinite. The one who’s all powerful. He can make it happen for you! Try him. Go into prayer and watch him work. I decree and declare that your prayers will be answered expeditiously! #JabezAnointing #Favor #BlessMeIndeed
Today’s prayer comes from a Psalm of David, Chapter 23! Although it’s a very popular prayer, I want you to read it from the Common English Bible Translation. Also, replace the word “my” with your name.
Example: The Lord is Shenica’s Shepherd, I lack nothing.
Repeat Psalm 23:1 everyday, even if you have to say small breathe Prayers. That first verse is soooo important because the enemy loves to play with our minds in terms of what we lack. Because we are children of the most high God, we need to understand that HE (God) is our Shepherd and will make sure we have EVERYTHING that we need. Something powerful happens when we are specific in prayer. Yes that’s right, we are decreeing and declaring that we will not lack in any area. *Stunting like my daddy* Lol. Oh God, I think I am telling my age with that line. But anyway, you get the point.
Day 8 Prayer Prompt: The Lord is My Shepherd, I lack nothing
Scripture: Psalms 23
Have a great week on purpose, see you again tomorrow! It’s going to be phenomenal eeeekkkkk! I may even do a Periscope. Are you on periscope? If so, follow me here!
I just love the book of Proverbs, especially the wisdom of a woman so eloquently quoted in Chapter 31. As women, our desire should be to live out the image God originally intended for our lives. After all, he DID create us with the intent for us to be GREAT! I mean, come on. Women are powerful and will influence not only her household but an entire generation.
In Proverbs, this one scripture helps me to understand how we can do it all. How we can BE who God predestined us to be! “Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future…”– Proverbs 31:25 CEB
Emphasis on Strength and honor are her clothing… Strength according to the Greek definition translates to boldness, might, and power. Honor translates to splendor, excellence and glory! So all of these adjectives are what the Proverbs 31 use as clothing or garments. No wonder she is confident with the future.
Day 7 Prayer Prompt: Help me to be the woman that you see!
Ahhhhhhh! I just love The Lord! See ya again tomorrow for Day 8!
