Prayer is defined as a petition, supplication or praise addressed to God. Prayer is a part of an intimate conversation with God subject to both parties speaking and listening. Intercessory prayer is the act of praying on the behalf of others and is something all Christians are called to do. Just as the Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf before the Lord, we too are called to intercede for others in prayer.
I first started living a life of prayer in 2000. Through the years, I have realized my faith is directly correlated to my prayer life and my conversations with God. As a Masters student in Christian Education, I was pushed to learn more about God and prayer than my previous superficial understanding. As a regular person that believes in the power of prayer and through default, I have become an intercessor for many. Recently, after battling a health issue, a friend of mine stated that I needed to get better soon because within our group of friends, I keep the rest of them going. Other friends have told me that my openness about my faith, the joys and struggles of my journey, has helped them on their own journey. My hope is that this site will be the same for you. Although I am extremely private, God has repeatedly placed in my heart the need to share my journey of faith with others so they too can be victorious in their faith struggles. At times I have refused or was too wounded to share, but it is during those times of heeding His voice that I learned how much my openness helped others.
Just as Moses held up the staff of the Lord before Joshua and his armies to achieve victory, I hold up my personal struggles and insights to you. This site is not only my sharing of faith with you, it’s dedicated to my God who teaches me daily about His character, His love, and the gift of prayer. By sharing my journey with you, I am also sharing my prayers with you and I hope you will utilize this site as a place to submit your prayers. As a friend once shared, “when you pray with and for people, their victory becomes your victory”.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so they can have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.” - John 10:10 NIRV

The Lie I Told Myself
Just as He was the provider for Abraham presenting the ram in the bush for sacrifice, and for Elijah on the mountain side, and as Jesus fed the five thousand. He is a provider for me and you.
Never get caught up in the lie that your provision is by your hand and not the hand of God.
