prayer for success showersFather, There are no words that can express what it means to me that Your Son Jesus gave His life that I can be free. It is this freedom that enables me to rise above the dictates of this world and to walk in absolute freedom and truth. More and more I realize that His suffering, death and resurrection is the reason I have a right to an abundant prosperous life and to live with You forever. Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, Teach me how to love as Jesus loved! My deepest desire is to love You with all my heart, mind and soul and to love others as I love myself. I will display this love not by mere words, but through action and deed. The love that flows from You to the Son, please pour that same love into me through your Holy Spirit. Then, I can be a reservoir spreading agape love throughout the earth. Amen

Father, There are times when I have a hard time stepping out and just doing it. I seek great faith! Regardless of what may be happening I will heed Your instruction and honor Your request. The only thing that prevents me from exercising radical faith are strongholds of fear. I know there is nothing too hard for You. I move confidently in overcomng every obstacle as I team up with You and guided by the Holy Spirit. Whatever You instruct me to do, I will do it even in the midst of the fear. Amen

Father, I know You have provided me with a certain measure of faith that increases with each trial and tribulation. I need your help as I proceed through life’s ups and downs. I do not want You to view me as a person with great faith. Teach me how to get out of the boat of fear and walk on the waters with exceeding faith to achieve the impossible. I can’t begin to experience all You have for me until I walk by faith and not by blinding sight. Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, I realize the vicissitudes of life are going to happen. Bless me to have a hunger and thirst for Your Word that I will be able to withstand every attack waged against me. Each day my knowledge in Your Word propels me to conquer any negative accusations and untruth that is being hurled at me. Teach me to apply Your laws and commandments to every situation in my life as I experience unparalleled success in all that You have purposed for me. Amen.

P-L-A-Y Like A Youth

play-like-a-youth2My niece-daughter set up Netflix for herself, her 4-year old son and me. For her son she made sure that he could only watch the cartoons she wanted him to watch. Checking to see if I had started using Netflix she saw all the cartoons that she didn’t want her 4-year old son watching. In essence, this little boy had figured out how to watch what he wanted to watch using my account. In the process of him playing, he realized that he could scout out and find other cartoons. When she inquired about why all of these cartoons were in my Netflix, he stated, “Auntie Jacqui did that.”

You know it got me thinking. We shirk back from discovering new things all because we are just too afraid to venture into a place we’ve never been. I’ve heard so many say that they just can’t learn the computer or they make it so hard they can’t figure out the simplest of things. Then it dawned on me! All we have to do is PLAY like a youth!

Can’t you remember that child-like abandonment that you had as you played and discovered new things? Yes, you made some mistakes but that didn’t stop you from discovering and learning new things, or simply, just having a great time.

Along the way, you realized those things that you should do and those things that would harm you. This 4-year old kid figured out a way that he could do something just by playing. Howbeit it was the wrong thing for him to do, but he wasn’t afraid to step out and do it.

You know we can apply this philosophy to our entire life. When we learn to play like a youth most of the things we find to be drudgery will no longer be that way. Even exercise.

Many of us know that we need to exercise, but when we think about it we always feel as though it is just too much. Just thinking about it makes you tired. What if you transformed your mindset about exercise? What if you just PLAY like a youth? Just have fun discovering new ways to move your body. You don’t have to look at as exercise, but look at it as rediscovering the kid in you.

When you go back to that child-like place of discovery and self-discovery there are so many things you will begin to do. You no longer have self-imposed limitations on your capabilities and what you can do. One of my favorite sayings of King David’s is when after dancing in total abandonment and his wife condemned him for acting foolishly in front of the people he emphatically stated, “…therefore will I play before the LORD.” 2 Sam 6:21 (KJV).

I heard Bishop T.D. Jakes say that we are still those young people trapped inside of decaying bodies. That same child is still inside of you waiting to be unleashed. Embrace and welcome the kid inside of you and do as David did, PLAY like a youth!

Tap into your childhood dreams and live them! Ignite your passion and become successful as you PLAY like a youth. Contact me @ The ME Place.


And David said to Michal, I was dancing before the Lord, who put me over your father and all his sons, to make me a ruler over the people of the Lord, over his people Israel: and I will go on playing before the Lord; 2 Sam 6:21 (BBE)

Then he said to them, “I can guarantee this truth: Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a child like this in my name welcomes me. Matt 18:3-5 (GW)


Father, Thank you for instructing me to become like a child and experience the fullness of who You created me to be. In my child-like abandonment I am no longer afraid to look foolish as I glorify You in all I do. In doing so, I not only please You and experience exuberant joy, but I experience success I never thought imaginable as I embrace the kid in me and just PLAY. Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, I’m in search of my authentic self and only You can reveal to me who I am. Although I have searched in all the wrong places, I ask Your forgiveness as I uncover those things that I thought was lost. I realize that You, in Your infinite wisdom and sovereignty, placed inside of me everything I need. Now I have wisdom, understanding, counsel, might and knowledge about my desires, dreams and passions as I experience unbridled success. Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, I am tried of being angry. I don’t know where all the anger started. I know this anger must be plucked out from the root for me to move forward. I have been afraid to deal with these anger issues. I cry out for your mercy and grace to help me. It is Your help that enables me to overcome negative emotions that drive me to repeatedly act out in anger. Although I realize how detrimental the anger has become, I find myself not being able to overcome it. I need You. Help me to relinquish the anger so I become all You envisioned. Amen


prayer for success showersFather, I have placed so many things and people before You. I find myself continually searching and not finding the love I desperately seek. As I move beyond the temporal love of this world, I embrace Your eternal love. It is in this embrace I feel the tenderness of Your breath on my face that exemplifies the intimate love I have yearned for all my life. It is unbelievable that it has always been there just waiting for me to embrace. Now I share a love affair that is totally beyond compare as I daily seek Your embrace. I love You. Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, I am responsible for everything I say. Give me the ability to refrain from idle conversations that can cause life-long debilitating effects for others as well as for myself. I will proclaim words of life and not death. Especially the words I speak over and about children. My goal is to be a touchstone in others lives so they can become all You envisioned as I do the same. Allow my words to illuminate the light of Christ. Every word I speak will be in alignment with the life I profess to walk in Christ Jesus. Amen.
