New Hope, New Life

Lord, can I start over with You?

(Sensed God smiling.)


Weighed myself. Ugh. Looked for my phone charger, plugged it in, fixed a cup of coffee,  and updated the Apps on my cell. . . Uh. . .


Oh Lord, how quickly I got so distracted. Help me to focus on You first.

My child, I’m here waiting for you.

Lord, I feel so overwhelmed with by all the “news”. At times I’m fearful, other times I’m ready for the Rapture. I hope for a better future. But when I look at the news, I become afraid.   I beg for mercy for our nation. 

I know we don’t deserve Your mercy. I don’t deserve Your mercy. No one does.

But I wonder. . .  have we as a nation crossed that line of no return. Lord, our only hope is to return to You.

I’ve heard stories of a prophesied great revival and I pray it is true. But when? We as a nation so need revival NOW. We deserve punishment, but I’m asking for a revival of returning to You.

A lot of people claiming to be prophets say many different things, but what do You say? Is there hope for us?

This represents our nation for we have fallen and are almost dead. But the Presence of God brings new life! We can have hope.

My child, I have come  to offer new life. If My people will return to Me, I will give them new life.

If My people turn away from Me, then they will suffer the consequences of their own choosing.

Lord, how do we get them to realize the truth? How do we get them to return to you?

Pray My child, pray.

—– Evening, and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.  Psalm 55:17 

Okay Lord, I will accept this challenge. But I get so easily distracted by the details of my little life. Help me to focus on the big picture  – You.

I get tired so quickly. Grant me the strength and ability to complete this task to the finish line. Help me to focus on praying for this nation 3x daily for 40 days.

Also Lord, I have struggled with my food issues for the last several weeks. It’s almost as if I’m standing in my kitchen holding on to the counter with white knuckles to keep from eating it all.

My child, your answer is easy. Get out of the kitchen and get on your knees. Go for a prayer walk. Focus on Me and the temptation will leave. Rejoice in the victory, My victory and your victory.

 Don’t look at the food. Sin begins with the eye looking. Looking brings desire. Desire brings entrapment. Keep your eyes on Me and I will lead you right out of that kitchen, your area of weakness.

An easy way to pray three times daily  for this nation is to pray  at your meals. Three meals, three prayers. Of course you know Paul said, “Pray without ceasing.” I agree.

Focus on My Presence throughout your day and no matter the news, your life will be full of My joy, My peace, and the victory I created for you.

Yes Sir. Thank you for speaking to me about these things. Thank you for Your mercy.


  •  If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
  • Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
  • For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life- is not of this world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever. I John 2:16-17
  • If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:8

    1. As an experiment, ask God to lead you to your records. When I am going to garage sales, I pray “Lord help me to find what I need and don’t let me waste my money.”
      I’m blessed every time.
