Please Pray


"Courage is fear that has said its prayers." Dorothy Bernard
Guys, can I ask...would you pray for me to be brave tomorrow night...and have courage...and stay present. I agreed to speak at an author's event. I...promised myself...no more hiding. 

Everytime I've had the opportunity to stand up....I've chickened out. I want to do this. I want to stay focused because maybe one person needs to hear what I have to say. 
When I get scared...I drift away in my head and can't focus. 
Thanks so much.....☺

You have not spoken publicly before? I was scared out of my wits the first time I did it, but after that one time I was over it! You will be fine, nerves are a good thing, they keep you on your toes and alert to what you will say. You just kind of need to get over the hump. I have just said a prayer, let us know how it turns out!

Oh, my dear darling, I am praying. Will you just relax, close your eyes and focus on how amazing and loving and lovable YOU are, for a few minutes??? I have remembered this date for so long. You are going to rock. EVERYBODY out there is looking to hear and see the miracle that can give them the power to feel that they can change their lives. YOU ARE THAT MIRACLE. Please be kind and bless them with that Power... the Power that is YOU.

Lord,
I pray for Sarah as she speaks tomorrow at the event. I pray that your Holy Spirit will fill her and take away her fear. I pray that you will touch other's as she shares her story of your grace in her life.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Nikki...you are not alone in your fear. Take a deep breath and after a few words, the words will flow easier. Remember the Holy Spirit speaks through people. You can do this...YES you can. Go girl!! :)

Sarah, I will be praying for you, it is the hardest thing to do, to get up in front of others, your strength will show through, that I am sure of. Think of all the people you have helped so far, Wishing you all the best.

I am just reading this today, so I hope it is not too late to pray. I would love to partner with you on this! There's obviously an enemy who does not want others to have the victory you have experienced.

I am not a reluctant person when it comes to speaking. I tell you this only because it is easy to rely on my own abilities and not the strength of the Lord. My own abilities are puny compared to God. So, my challenge is always to dial down, clear my head and listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit. I just get out of the way.

I can't wait for a good report!
