a prayer always answered with a yes

I'm convinced that there are certain prayers that God always answers "yes" to. Here's mine today: Lord, Heavenly Father, Giver of all good gifts, Saviour, Creator, Deliverer, Comforter,

Search my heart, see if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Let me be a light for You. Father, You know that I am not a quiet kind of girl and that my family longs to do bigger and better things for YOU that we may declare Your good works among the people-do that Lord, use us Lord! We have some ideas about where You want us and how you want us to get there, but make it clear to us Lord and help us to act on the still small whisper into our hearts. More of You, Lord! More of You! I want to live on the thrill of the unexpected ways of Your marvelous provisions! Today, Lord, may we see how You long to delight us as Your children and may we so please You Lord that You and You alone are enough to satisfy! Don't let us get comfortable even for one day-for every hour Lord, is precious. Show us where we can do good and do not allow any discouragement to enter in as we fix our eyes on You, Lord-alone! Seal my husband and I together with the mighty glue of our vows to You and may we be as iron sharpens iron, loving one another and taking joy in serving each other. In Jesus name, I pray, AMEN!
