What is your deepest desire? What is that thing you hope for, and dream about, but just can't seem to attain? Think about that for a moment. Would God say to you, that dream you've dreamed that seems to be out of your reach is all about ME?

How can you be certain that your dream is a God dream? A God dream brings glory and honor to God, helps you fulfill your purpose, and will bless others. God is the only One you'll ever meet whose plan is all about Him, but really feels as though it's all about you.

You've been pregnant with the dream and - the wait - the weight, the pause, the heaviness of something that feels overdue. There's no denying, your discomfort has been real. As you've waited, you've experienced deep pain. Pain so deep, you incorrectly presumed a miscarriage of the dream was imminent. Do not allow your discomfort to become confused with death, the death of a dream.

Return to the One Who planted the seed, the dream. Repent of any unconfessed sin. Read the manual (Bible) in preparation for your delivery. Respond by obeying what you've read. Remember God's timing differs from yours. Rely upon God! He who started this good work in you will be faithful to complete it. (Philippians 1:6 Hebrews 12:2).

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.” ‭‭Habakkuk‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭NKJV ‬‬http://bible.us/114/hab.2.3.nkjv “For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ http://bible.com/114/isa.64.4.nkjv)

On Labor day, Idalia O. and I agreed to go on a prayerventure (similar to adventure- but of a heavenly nature). We threw on our House on the Rock, "We get to serve" T-shirts and headed for Rockaway Beach, in search of people who would like to receive prayer.

We noted that the most common prayer request of the day was for peace. What a blessing to find that the people of New York are most concerned about the state of the world we all share. In addition, someone requested that we pray for peace for everyone.

One of the beach-goers we spoke with was troubled by a conversation she overheard that day and asked us to pray against racism.. A couple of people asked for prayers for their lives, and a mother asked us to pray for healing for her daughter. Our most interesting prayer request was regarding UFO's. We asked the Lord to bless every Rockaway Beach goer that day!

As we prepared to leave, we agreed to wait for an opportunity to pray for at least one more person, but felt that we should not limit our Lord to just one more - in case His plan was different from ours. We were elated when we were given the opportunity to pray for four more people before ending our prayerventure.

We were reminded to take the limits off of our Lord, especially when it comes to prayer! How can you do the same? Be bold and have your own prayerventure. We are living in a time that demands prayer. We are living among people who, like us, need Jesus desperately.

Look around! The need for prayer is in the atmosphere. We all are given countless opportunities daily to have prayerventures. Arise sons and daughters of the Most High, the world is waiting (Romans 8:19). What's stopping you?

"Let us humble ourselves and pray, and seek the Lord's face, and turn from our wicked ways; asking the Lord to hear us, forgive our sins, and heal our land". (II Chronicles 7:14). Start your prayerventure today!
