My One Prayer

For over 25 years, Sherry and I have read and discussed a daily encouragement every morning. Currently, we’re re-reading my book “Be Still”, and today’s encouragement started with Jesus, speaking to the disciples in John 16:24, saying, “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” The encouragement ends with me asking this question: “If you could ask Jesus for one thing, what would it be?”

At first, I couldn’t think what my one prayer would be, but then it struck me that what I would ask for is something Jesus asked the Father for…

as it is in heaven


  1. Amen to that. God knows what He is doing. I pray we stay out of His way and let Him do what is best

  2. Just bought your book today… Be still…

    Thank you, Melissa🐝 🌹@Odds N Ends Treasures
    ONE TREASURE at a time 🌻💜

    • Thank you! I hope you enjoy it. It was my first attempt at writing devotionals, and it’s a bit rough around the edges. I still get a lot of good out of many of the encouragements, and I hope you do too!
