A new sign in Shepherd's Walk along the Pathway.
As we approach Holy Week on bended knee,
may our hearts reflect the entire passage.
1 Peter 1
Praise to God for a Living Hope
3 Praise be to the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In His great mercy
He has given us new birth
into a living hope
through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 and into an inheritance
that can never perish, spoil or fade—
kept in heaven for you,
5who through faith
are shielded by God's power
until the coming of the salvation
that is ready to be revealed
in the last time.
6In this you greatly rejoice,
though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7These have come so that your faith—
of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire —may be
proved genuine
and may result in
praise, glory and honor
when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 Though you have not seen Him,
you love Him;
and even though you do not see Him now,
you believe in Him and are filled
with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
9 for you are receiving the goal
of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
13Therefore, prepare your minds
for action;
be self-controlled; set your hope fully
on the grace to be given you
when Jesus Christ is revealed.
14 As obedient children,
do not conform to the evil desires
you had when you lived in ignorance.
15 But just as He who called you
is holy,
so be holy in all you do;
16 for it is written:
"Be holy,
because I am holy."

22 Now that you have
purified yourselves
by obeying the truth
so that you have sincere love
for your brothers,
love one another deeply,
from the heart.
23 For you have been born again,
not of perishable seed,
but of imperishable,
through the living and enduring
Word of God.

God Eternal
May we see, feel and taste that You are good and that Your loves endures forever. Teach us through our sufferings to TRUST YOU fully so that You [and we] may be found faithful!
In Jesus' Name, Amen!

My GRANDSON, Jyden, speaks! "Out of the mouths of babes!"

Matthew 9:35-37

The Workers Are Few

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

When He saw the crowds,

He had compassion on them,

because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a Shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.


 Holy Father ----

You are the God of all COMPASSION! May our hearts overflow as out of the hearts of 'babes' to show compassion on those who are less fortunate than we are. May we reach out to all who You put in our pathway this day - to bring them light, hope, redemption, restoration, peace, refuge and comfort. And may it hurt our pockets when we do it! Stretch us Lord, to be more like You--- more compassionate. To say a kind word, to bring food or clothing to someone in need. Help us to give them the BEST of what You have given us - not simply our leftovers! Break us of our pride and humble our hearts as we seek to please You in this area of compassion. It is the very Heart of Your character, GOD!

Bless all those who pray this prayer from the bottom of their hearts today!

In JESUS' Name and for His glory!

Amen and Amen!

The Transformed Prayer RoomIMG_1082





Matthew 7:7 [above]


God Most High - Ancient of Days -

HaGoƩl Adon'i

May You transform the lives of those who pray in this room. May all the words surrounding its walls be reminders of your transforming power as we seek to TRUST YOU - for that is what You are obsessed with - simply our TRUST of You!

  • For You, LORD, ARE Who You say You are!
  • You can do what You say You can do!
  • I am Who You say that I am... I'm Your child!
  • I can do all things through Christ... but apart from You I can do nothing.
  • May Your Holy Word come alive and active in the lives of those who read it within these walls.

Lord, there is nothing special about this place - nothing magical or mystical but it is simply a place where You meet a seeking heart in the intimacy of Your Love and Your transforming power. So for that reason alone we Believe You for the miracles and supernatural power that will come from this place - all because YOU ARE HERE waiting and beckoning us to "Come" and "pray while You may be found"!

Many lives are transformed in the closets of prayer rooms. May those who come here in person and those who come to pray in this Blogland site be transformed here!

In Your Holy Name,

Amen and AMEN!

As God has drawn me into this Prayer Room every day at least twice a day for the last 4 weeks - He is doing a 'new thing' in the realms of prayer. Won't you take your turn in The Prayer Room or in your own Prayer Closet in at home - the very place where you meet with God - waiting for Him to speak through His Word - a place to worship and adore Him - a place where no petition is offered except to know Him more so that you trust Him more.

Below is a link to the music of Kari Jobe. Her new CD is what I had been listening to when God began to call me to The Prayer Room again. Here you can hear her own testimony of how a Prayer Closet transformed her life when she was only 13 years old. Now - God is overwhelming her entire life with music and the desires of her heart! If only more 13-year-old girls asked their fathers to build them a prayer closet --- the world might be transformed!

It's an amazing testimony of one Prayer Closet where God met even a young girl heart to HEART!

I highly recommend her latest CD called: Kari Jobe

Be Blessed .... and then get on your knees before the Lord!

Animalssheepshear Meet "Cotton". She is the sister of "Lace"... two sheep that lived here at Sweetbriar in years gone by. This Photo was taken in 2003. Our friend, Bruce, was the shearer.

****** Bruce is now in heaven with the Lord ******* LIFE is SHORT


Are you feeling naked today? Are you hurting? Has your voice been silenced before the sheerer? Is your body laid out flat before the LORD?


Isaiah 53:6-8

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
       each of us has turned to his own way;
       and the LORD has laid on Him
       the iniquity of us all.

 He was oppressed and afflicted,
       yet He did not open His mouth;
       He was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
       and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
       so He did not open His mouth.

By oppression and judgment He was taken away.
       And who can speak of His descendants?
       For He was cut off from the land of the living;
       for the transgression of My people He was stricken.

[emphasis added]

John 10:11-16

"I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

"I am the Good Shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me— just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father—and I lay down My life for the sheep. I  have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one Flock and one Shepherd.

[emphasis added]

Be still my soul, wait patiently before the LORD, be still my soul... BE STILL!

Holy Father-------

For those who are hurting, feeling naked, silenced and still before You - may we remember when it happened to You. You alone know the pain and suffering of grief, sickness and the devastations of life. May we fall on our faces before You and weep at your feet so that You alone can comfort us. Would you wrap Your nail-pierced hands around us and those we love today?

In Jesus' Name - our Messiah - HaGo'el A'doni!

AMEN and Amen!
