Prayer and praise powers Twitter

2 Corinthians 1:4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
I’m in a season of sorrow as I watch my mother slowly start to leave her earthly body. She’s in hospice care. Other key people in my life are also facing serious health issues, and I’ve also had to deal with the “thorns” that I battle.
I am taking care of myself by sharing my burdens with the Lord and with the people who are closest to me. In short, I’m doing all I can humanly do to remain in God’s peace. And most days, I’m amazed at the joy in my heart regardless of my circumstances.
But some days it’s hard…
I feel helpless when Mom’s in pain and I watch her suffer but not complain. All I can do is reassure her that the staff is doing all they can to keep her comfortable and that I love her. And then I cry and my heart breaks and that’s when I feel deep sorrow. I remind myself that Jesus wept (John 11:35). The God who made me understands my human emotions and need for comfort.

Nothing is as powerful as prayer and praise


I love the many people who follow my timeline on Twitter (I’m @BlancaV), so I “tweeted” to the Reverend Patrick L. Adams (@RevPat1), who is a powerful intercessor and encourager, to pray for my Mom and my heavy heart. He jumped into action with encouragement – AND by asking those who follow his ministry to pray for my Mom and me! In turn, those folks also “re-tweeted” the prayer request and hundreds of people were lifting us up in prayer all day and into today – because social media is 24/7. We felt those powerful prayers.


God encourages us through others

If any of you are having trouble, pray. If you are happy, sing psalms. James 5:13

Never doubt the prayer of prayer and praise. My day ended beautifully as I joined in #Tworship praise with another group of Twitter souls who worship together Monday through Friday at 9 p.m. EST with music found on Tworship.com. I found myself encouraging and praying for others as God strengthened me. God’s people are powerful and encouraging through prayer and praise.

We are all connected through the Comforter of our soul. Share your prayers and praise. You made a difference to me and my mom! I love how God works through all of us!

Praise Him!

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7 Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees ,  who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad. But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt e

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice Luke 7:36-40 The Voice translation  Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them. That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “ The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side . “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your rea
