Dear Lord, When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, "Don't cry." (Luke 7:13) I woke up this morning of course with my loved one in my thoughts again. I know that I need to stop thinking about this prodigal daughter and rely on God's promises. I turn to the Bible and begin to read... "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7) I know that peace and confidence will come when I begin to focus on Jesus because "he himself is our peace." (Ephesians 2:14) I need to drop everything and spend time with God, remembering that He is "majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders" (Exodus 15:11) When I weep in my "gut" for my daughter because of her plans contrary to God's plan for her, I remember that Jesus is weeping, too! I'm waiting for Jesus to stop her with a road block of His amazing love! I place her in Your hands Jesus! I believe that You can and will turn her plans around. He is the "resurrection and the life" (John 11:25) You are God, and you answer prayer! Your "love never fails" (1 Corinthians 13:8)!

Prayer warriors, I need your weapons! A week and a half ago I saw a man standing by the road with an advertising sign. He was on my route home, and this was not the first time I had seen him. Yet this day, the Holy Spirit grabbed my heart and I felt like I needed to stop and talk to him. I was terrified. I am very timid and shy and have trouble talking with strangers. I had prayed just a few days before to be more courageous. Maybe this was my first test. I usually keep some tracts in my truck and leave them in various places around town as I have an opportunity, but this day I didn't have any. I prayed, but I felt guilty, and didn't stop. For days I prayed for courage to face him, but I didn't see him again. Just this week I received some new tracts in the mail and wondered if perhaps the Lord was "waiting" because He wanted me to give him one of those. Tuesday I made sure I had some with me, and I KNEW that if I saw the man again, I would have to stop this time and talk to him. As I reached his corner -- there he was! The first day he had been back in nearly two weeks, and the day after I was armed and ready! There was no denying the Holy Spirit this time. I would have to stop and do what He had been preparing me for -- no excuses. I had to circle around through a major shopping center to reach him, and I didn't want to approach him from behind and startle him, so I prayed, "Lord, if you want me to do this, please make him turn around and come this way." I guess I was putting out my test fleece. Less than 20 seconds later, he turned, looked at me, and started walking my way! You can believe I leaped out of my truck like a shot. No way was I going to blow it this time! With courage that wasn't mine, I talked with him for a moment, gave him the tract, and told him that the Lord had sent me to give it to him. He got a soft look on his face and gently said that it was his birthday that day. I congratulated him and encouraged him again to read the message I had been sent to give him. I think maybe that he had been waiting for a word from the Lord that day. As I left, he was putting his sign away to leave too. What if I had been 10 minutes later? Would he have still been there? If I had chickened out, would I have gotten another chance? Please pray that the Holy Spirit will not let him go until he joins the Kingdom of God!!
