Five Ways to Succeed in Life and Love-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Thanks so much for joining me for Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power! There really, truly are ways to succeed in live and love, and I am really enjoying our coffee hours talking about them. Grab your coffee and come on in for more of step 3, which is to pray.

I love that acronym we went over in our last coffee hour that describes the word “PRAY” pretty simplistically, and yet, if we follow that format, we will have more success in life and love than we ever imagined. Another thing to remember in how we start to pray is to make a deposit before we make a withdrawal!

The Hebrew translation for the word pray states that In order for it to be prayer, it has to be two-way to be real; it has to be between two! I was so excited when I read that because you know what that confirms? Our first step, “resolve,” which is partnering with the Holy Spirit! Isn’t that way cool? So He’s my first prayer partner! 🙂 I feel so blessed to be the student of Him and thereafter, share it with you!

Let me give you another analogy or way to look at how, when and why we pray. Have you ever been out to dinner with your honey, and looked around you and your gaze stopped at another couple and watched them interact, or not? What I mean is you can often tell the temperature of a marriage by their interactions or lack thereof. 🙁

Now switch it to coffee at Starbucks with girlfriends. You can often tell the level of friendship by the interactions of girlfriends, too, can’t you? 🙂 🙂

Now, I don’t want you to think I’m lurking at the nearest Starbucks to spy on you and your friends, or visiting all the restaurants to see how you and your main squeeze interact . 🙂 I’m merely trying to point out that communicating with our Heavenly Father is and can be a lot like communicating with a friend, someone you love. Yes, our Father’s holy and sovereign, seated on the throne, and yet, He meets us where wherever we are! He is accessible 24/7, never has voice mail on, and when we come to Him and thank Him for anything, something, it becomes easier to see where we need to repent and turn the other way, toward Him. When we are walking the life that leads closer to Him, it becomes easier to ask Him for all things while yielding to His will for our life. 🙂 🙂

Join me tomorrow for a bit more on this step.

Love and laughter,


Be Sociable, Share!

    Just had a conversation with two sweet persons about this very thing. I think that not realizing you are to have a personal relationship on a friendship level with Abba God, keeps a lot of folk from just talking to Him. He longs to hear your voice and we absolutely always need to hear from Him.
