My Prayer Garden

Several months ago, I clearly was impressed to set aside a quiet place outdoors where I can pray and read the Bible. I asked my husband what he thought about this. Not only did he agree, he began to tackle the project and now I have a prayer garden just outside of my home where the birds feed and some dogs bark! It is here that I enjoy my morning coffee and spend time with God and pray for my loved ones. I want you to know that I take it seriously when you ask for prayer; those requests go on my list to pray for each day.

Do you seek the Lord for a word of encouragement? I do.

Today’s word comes from Romans 8:11:
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

I don’t know about you, but I’m grabbing this one with all my heart. I’m thankful that His power lives in me like that helping me to not give into my flesh today, but live for Him. Praise God for His Holy Spirit.
May you have a wonderful day.


  1. How beautiful. I just posted some pics of little corners inside my home where I spend time with the Lord...great mind's think alike? lol

  2. What a delightful spot to pray!

    When my father was very sick from the cancer, that was the Scripture I meditated on as I lifted him up in prayers.

    I'm sure you are surrounded with beautiful flowers and other blooming things, like how you are so nourished in that special "spot" by the Word! God bless. Have a nice day sister Mary! I still got that "sugar overdose" from that mother's day cookie! So, I've been moving around to burn that calories off! :)

  3. This is just beautiful Mary! Your special prayer corner outdoors is a peaceful resting place to read the Word and to pray for others. I could hear the birds singing and to connect a voice with your face...I was elated. You sound as sweet and wonderful as you look dear, precious friend. You just absoutely made my day.

    Thank you for such a wonderful blog and for your continued daily prayer support. That, to me, is a gift within itself.

    I love you deeply dear friend,

  4. What a special prayer garden you have there. And I loved hearing your voice too. God's Word does not return void. Thank you for praying for your blogging friends.

  5. Yes, I want to really comprehend that verse. Nothing is impossible with God. I will think of you in your prayer garden praying for me and my children. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

  6. I was too "hyper" earlier that I forgot to mention what a sweet voice you have. And I just want to thank you for praying, too for us. I also keep you in my prayers. Love to you sister!

  7. Every prayer closet needs to be decorted with flowers!

    There's just something about nature that is so synonymous with nurture ... His nurture.



  8. You are such a joy my friend. It is so nice to hear your voice and I just adore your prayer garden! It just looks so peaceful.
    The verse is perfect too.
    Big hugs to you.

  9. I am blessed to see this post! Delighted to hear your voice and see you. God is so awesome. Here's a hug.

  10. Hi Mary,

    P.S. Love your prayer garden!

  11. This is just too cute! I love you and so appreciate your prayers for all of us. You are as sweet sounding as you are looking! Love ya and I'M PRAYING FOR YOU!!!

  12. Oh, Sue, thank you so much. What a beautiful message. You are a wonderful woman of God with a true servant's heart.

    I leave your place encouraged each time I visit. Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement.

    Your garden is so pretty and peaceful. What a perfect place to seek the Lord!

    Many blessings to you. You are a dear friend and sister.

    With Christ's Love,


  13. It's lovely! Woof Woof and tweet tweet. The background noise in my prayer closet is often city life, honk honk. I am so thankful that God simply brings music to our ears whenever we pray for one another! Thank you, you little angel you.

  14. I just love your prayer garden. Isn't it great to have a special place to meet with the Lord and find peace? I just created a place in my never-used living room where I love to pray, read my Bible, watch the birds outside and just be.
