Can I Pray to See Blessings?

by Janis Cox


After finding my “word” for 2013, which is LIVE, my desire was to make a new habit to write a word from God each week. It is called Wednesday’s Word.

This week I chose the word today. Everything that I have been reading speaks to me about living with God each moment. I get great help and inspiration from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling.

This week the words that touched me were:

“My living Presence is your Companion every step of the way…Expect each day to contain surprises… The future is a phantom, seeking to spook you. Laugh at the future. Stay close to me” (Jesus Calling).

Yesterday’s reading said SEARCH. That made me laugh as another habit I am cultivating this year is the JOY DARE. Every day I go on a hunt for 3 things listed in the Dare. You can check this out on Ann Voskamp’s page.

Can I  to pray to SEE those blessings and watch for everything around me that God is preparing me to see. – YES

Anticipate abundant blessings and accept difficulties as they come.

How can I do that?

Answer: By being in constant contact with the Father.


Once again I have an acronym for AWARE:

A – Always
W – Watch
A – Anticipate
R – Rewards
E – Every day


Oh Lord, open my eyes to see you in my life today. Help me search for what you have prepared for me. Thank you in advance. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.

The song that came to me was Open the Eyes of My Heart. One of the first version I heard was Sonic Flood’s.
