Prayerfully Speaking

Hope from the Truths of God's Word

He Tells Me What to Pray

Over the last few days, I’ve sensed God showing me a new way that I should pray for myself.

I keep getting the idea that I should pray for God to open new areas or pathways in my mind.

Does that make sense to you? It makes perfect sense when you know the issues I have with concentration, mental energy and accomplishing all that I have to do at work.

As you know, I’m a big believer in Ephesians 3:20 – that our God can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine by the power of His Spirit at work in us (my paraphrase).  And I believe that God is showing me how to ask Him for what I need. As my Creator, He is well aware of how my body is functioning and what it needs to fulfill His work through me. And He is able to heal me.- to do more than heal my mind in every place that needs it.

I’m so excited to experience His love for me in this way. He knows my every need. And He knows I need help.

As I thought about this, I began to imagine the “living water” of healing flowing into new areas of my brain. I can see it happening. My new visual prayer is opening the door of my mind to His healing and allowing Him to open new paths, new ideas, new abilities that He will use for His glory.

Today’s devotion in My Utmost for His Highgest says… “We are to be fountains through which Jesus can flow as “rivers of living water” in blessing to everyone.” I am smiling and seeing in faith God will open these new places in my brain so that He can use me in more ways as a blessing.

I look forward to telling you how He is answering this prayer that He, himself gave me to pray.

I believe He is available to you for the very same healing. May our God delight to heal the broken and deserted places in our minds. In the name of Jesus, I invite this for each of us. May He bring His will into our lives. We are covered by His blood.  Let it be, Lord.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. – Revelations 21:5

Have you experienced God showing you how to pray before? I’d love for you to share your experience.

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.

  1. Lord, I agree in prayer with Jennifer that You will, indeed, open new pathways in her mind, both literally and figuratively, and I ask the same for myself. Father, we need Your healing so badly, so desperately. Help us. We love you. Amen.

      Oh Diane. Thank you for the beautiful prayer!

  2. I pray for you everyday…and ask God to direct your life…and mine as well…thank you for not hiding your light under a basket…and for letting it shine in mine. Big

  3. What a delightful post.

    I was just having this conversation with a believer who is reading Why Revival Tarries. Their take on it was people need to pray. That sounds good but lots of Christians pray.

    As we continued to speak the person went on to talk about prayer and the intimacy of the conversation between God and the person praying. It is a relationship. It has an ebb and flow. We speak and God speaks back to us.

    He answers us, He nourishes us, He directs us… many things go on. It is an alive experience. It is not just a rote formula or check list.

    I am glad you are experiencing it anew and sharing. Thank you.

      You are so right! It’s is alive. I’m so grateful for His patience with me and that my relationship with Him surpasses anything that a human relationship can be. Thanks for reading the post!

    Thank you Jennifer for sharing this post! I am struggling with the same thing, and it never even dawned on me to pray about it in the way you have. Thank you for reminding me. You constantly teach me something new and are always a blessing to me. I keep you constantly in my prayers and love you dearly. I have no doubt that you will find the healing you seek. I will prayer for us both to find it.
