A natural result of accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior is a new desire to see others come to know Him. The burden is greatest for those who are near and dear to our hearts: spouse and child. New Christians are so eager to share their faith, but many times loved ones are not very open or receptive. Often we look at the lives of those we share Jesus with and see no hope for their salvation. We fail in not placing our burden with the only One that can truly give us any hope, Jesus Christ. Salvation is God’s plan fulfilled in Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God draws men to salvation. Jesus wants our loved ones saved more than we do. It is His will for all men to be saved; man only has but a choice to make. “Dear Sister in Christ” reminds us of what Jesus can do and where we can find hope and comfort in His Word.

Matthew 18:20

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

I begin today’s post and prayer with Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, I am there in their midst.”

I find myself struggling these past few days with grieving the loss of not only my father but health issues with my mom and relationship matters with my siblings. And I find myself saying, “This hurts a lot!”

In the midst of this struggling I have contacted my dear and precious sisters-in-Christ and realize that this verse is a promise from our Heavenly Father. Yes He is there!! Just like He is there when you read this post, for indeed as you read this post you have been gathered together with me in His Name, the Great I AM, our Creator, our Strong Tower, our Peace which passes all understanding, Yes He is a Mighty God.

How BIGGER is our LORD, that all we need to do is be gathered together in His Name and He says, He spoke, and thus it came into being that “I AM there in their midst”. We need not be afraid or concerned or worried ever for He has united us together by two and three’s. How awesome is that? We need not struggle alone, we need not suffer alone, we need not…

Thank you dear and precious sisters-in-Christ for your precious gathering together in His Name.

Abba Father, Praise to thee!!! Thank you for your kindness and gentleness and mighty power and divine peace. I pray for each dear and precious sister-in-Christ today that she take hold of this promise and remember that she need not—- alone. May she come along side another in His Name and know that “I AM” there in their midst. May they be a comfort, a friend, an encourager, a prayer warrior to each other and may they give thanks and praises to the one who is there in their midst. In the Precious Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Just When I Thought It Was Safe

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

Just when I thought it was safe to store the snow shovel in the shed and get out the spring planting basket!!

Well… 8 inches of new snow on Monday, cleared a path for mailman and water meter woman, sidewalks and driveway on Tuesday and this morning at 7:00 am looked out the window and snowing seriously, not just little flakes but the big flakes.

So… just when I thought it was safe…

How many times have you, “just when I thought it was safe?”

Abba Father, Praise and Glory and Honor to thee, thank you that “just when I thought it was safe”, you are there in the midst of it ALL. In all things and in all ways You are our Strong Tower, our Safe Harbor, our Gliding Light, our Strength, our Joy, our Hope and our Peace. Oh most Sovereign Lord the Great I AM, the Author and Finisher, the Great Almighty I come before Your Throne of Grace this morning and pray for these dear and precious sisters-in-Christ may You embrace them and anoint them and give them Your Peace which passes all understanding and may they have the mind of Christ to thwart the fiery darts that the enemy sends to them especially when “just when I thought it was safe” moments come into their lives. In the Precious Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Trusting, Waiting, and Resting

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

A love wanting to be expressed and the refusal of the one to receive it. Wow, I guess I could be like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh and just pounce anyway. But I’m not wanting to be a tigger right now. Not wanting to pounce.

I’m so thankful that I have such a loving LORD that He is not like tigger. I’m so thankful that He loves me even when I ignore, complain, walk away, demand, and exclude Him.

On this fabulous and adventureous and glorious journey with the Lord I am

Trusting in His Eternal Grace

Waiting upon Him

Resting in Christ Alone

Abba Father as we gather together this week remembering and dwelling upon what Jesus did for us may we lift up holy hands to the One who Loves so deeply and intimately and graciously and became the Lamb of God who was slain and died taking upon all of our sins, (past, present, and future) and on the third day arose. Praise to thee oh Precious Jesus for being the sacrificial Lamb. Hallelujah. Lord, I pray for each dear sister-in-Christ that this holy week of remembrance they rejoice. In the precious name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.



“Dates” of Our Lives

Greetings dearest and precious sisters-in-Christ,

The first day of Spring, yes, I know that yesterday some celebrated that the 20th was the first day, but for me I have always known that the first day of Spring or Summer or Fall or Winter is the 21st. For I was born on the 21st of December and that year it was the first day of winter. Very important date to remember. And for remembering dates – birthdays, anniversaries, special holidays, and deaths. Why are dates remembered even when those dates have associated with them, pain or suffering?

I have hesitated in posting these prayers because I am in the midst of grieving and not knowing quite how to acknowledge my own grief so not wanting to say or do anything that offends or upsets or causes a sister-in-Christ to stumble. That is the reason I have been sporactically posting. I do apologize.

On Saturday I will be doing something that I have not had to experience ever before – I will be sitting in a church pew with many others and on that date, March 24th, I will not have to put on a smile, I will not have to put others first, I will not have to try to understand. I will be, “the one and only loving daughter”. Something that I took for granted and something that I will cherish until my dying day.

Abba Father, Praise to thee and thank You for Loving us, Your precious children. Lord God I pray for each dear and precious sisters-in-Christ that the “dates” in their lives are filled with Your Presence and Peace. For each “date” of her life is a day of remembrance, whether it was filled with laughter or tears, they are special and meaningful for them alone. Lord bless each one this day as they live out the “dates” in their lives in Trusting and Resting in Your Grace. In the Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Trusting and Resting in Him,

dear sister in christ


Loved By The Father

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

It is with a heavy heart that I come to you this Wednesday morning. I missed last Wednesday because I was at the hospital along with my husband and mother and brother present and my two younger brothers on the phone while we gathered together and said goodbye to our precious daddy. I am sad!! My earthly daddy was such a wonderful and loving man. He was not perfect by any means but still his love was infectious. Over the last year, when we (my husband and I) returned to Lewistown Montana and being very much aware of daddy’s declining health, we took every day to keep in touch and to have our special times together. I realize that what I will miss most is his love. My daddy and I had a special bond, me being his only daughter and oldest of 5 children, he treated me differently than the boys. When I was younger I sometimes took advantage of this but as I matured I came to realize that I was special and came to trust in that. There was not a moment that I did not know that I was loved by my earthly daddy. It is the same way with my walk with the LORD, I am a daughter who is deeply loved by her Father.

This love of my FATHER will never die, never cease, never grow old and never change. Oh how amazing to know that the Creator of the Universe loves me and forever will.

Abba Father, thank you that Your Love never ceases and never dies and never changes. I pray for each sister-in-Christ that today will be a day where she knows with her heart and mind and soul that she is LOVED. In the Precious Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Eternally and Forever LOVED,


You Are Beautiful

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

I wrote this on January 27th when I knew that I was not going to be able to post on the 30th due to a doctor’s visit for my husband, which was in another city 126 miles away.

In light of all the drama that has been going on in the world with Women’s Marches and rally’s and such, I would like to talk about who we are as sisters-in-Christ.

I begin with “Beautiful things don’t ask for Attention”, I saw this refrigerator note pad sitting on a shelf at my local pharmacy. The moment I read this simple yet profound statement my heart and mind were captured. Yes, captured by the profound meaning of those 6 words. As sisters-in-Christ we are adorned with the Beauty of the LORD, which is more beautiful than you can ever imagine. His Beauty is beyond description! Also we are showered with His holy fragrance which is, “…a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” We are dear and we are precious and we are His one and only loving daughter. He sees us as righteous. We also have the mind of Christ!

In faith I pray that each one of you who are dear and precious and righteous because of what Christ did on the Cross that you would clothe yourself with the Beauty of the Lord and put on the Fragrance of Christ and boldly go forth with confidence in knowing that you are Beautiful and that beautiful things don’t ask for attention. May your day be richly blessed with His Love, His Peace, His Power, His Provision and His Presence. In the Precious Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Abiding in His Joy,


1 Peter 1:2-5

Greetings dear and precious sisters-in-Christ,

This week has been eventful for me and probably the same for you. Each day has a flair of its own! Me not knowing just how the day is going evolve whether it is filled with peace and gentleness or filled with stress and tension I must take it step by step and breath by breath in Trusting.

Today’s verse and prayer is found in 1 Peter 1:2-5, “According to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living Hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Dear and precious sisters-in-Christ this is my prayer unto the Heavenly Father for all of you. I ask that your week be filled with His most glorious and magnificent grace and His peace which passes all understanding and knowing each day that you are protected by the power of God through faith. In the Precious Name of Jesus, the Name above all names, Amen.

Desiring the Beauty of the LORD,


Dear Sisters in Christ,

I have a prayer request. It may seem silly or self-centered, but it’s important to me. I was slanted to graduate in December of this year, and had my Checklist meeting with the Registrar today. Turns out, I need a Communications Internship to graduate. I’ve done substantial work at 3 different places–but “retro-credit” is not given. I can’t use my current on-campus internship, as it has to be off-campus for credit. I do not know what to do next or how I will complete the 160 hours needed before December. Please pray that God will send just the right internship for me and that I will have faith, peace and patience that He will provide all my needs.

Thank you all!
