This indeed is the day that the Lord has made we will rejoice and be glad in it…. I shared the “BHAP” (Big Hairy Audacious Prayers) thought with a few people and they thought that it was great. So in our house going forward we will be praying Big Hairy Audacious Prayers). We serve a big God who is still in the prayer answering business.
With that in mind if you have any prayer requests, PLEASE send me a message. Roxanne and I will commit to praying for you daily.
Since I wrote the last paragraph our door bell rang, and it was a strong reminder that HE does answer BIG PRAYERS. Last spring one of our neighbors told us that they were wanting to have a baby but had not been yet successful in getting pregnant. We let her know we would be praying, which we did consistently. She eventually let us know when she was pregnant and this morning they brought over the little baby to meet us.
What a great reminder from the Lord of HIS goodness, and answered prayers. A powerful confirmation to me as I had started writing about prayer this morning, and then answer to prayer showed up at our door.
Once again if you need prayer send me your requests and we will pray for you.
Last week I had my 12 month follow for the bi-lateral hip replacement surgery. It was actually held at 11 months and I passed with flying colors. During one of the tests I walked at 1.79 meters per second which is one of the fastest paces they had seen. I don’t have to go back for follow for another 3 years so that is indeed a blessing. I also met 3 men contemplating hip surgery. I told them what I went through and I told them I could now walk any distance with no pain whatsoever…I told them I am now able to enjoy doing physical activities again. I am trying my best to walk at least 20 miles per week and I really enjoy being active.
Just a short post today and with the ringing of the door bell, I am reminded that this indeed is the day that the Lord has made. Trusting that all of you have an amazing day.
Do you remember from the business world BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) and how it is is vital to a company and the employees????
Two weeks ago at a night of prayer at our church there were 6 of us in attendance. Myself, Roxanne and 4 others. I don’t know why but I started talking about BHAG and all of sudden the thought came to me. BHAP!!! For a believer we need to believe in BHAP. We need to have that mindset when we pray. IT MUST BE BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS PRAYERS. We need to pray and then we need to believe God for the answer.
We need to believe that no prayer is too big for God. I have the 6 of us using the phrase BHAP now. I am wondering if this is something that can catch on? How many of you reading would say BHAP?
I have no idea where the original thought came from. Maybe it was myself and maybe God planted the thought in my head. Roxanne and I are choosing to pray that way going forward.
Not only Big Prayers, we also want to have Big Impact on People. With God’s help we want to make a difference in the lives of people.
What a way to start today’s Blog Post!!
I just finished driving my home from California, more about that in future writings. At this point I will say it was fun and memorable.
I flew to Palm Springs on the 29th, and we left on the 1st of February. Before we left Palm Springs one early morning I went for a walk and saw a robin. The robin was sitting in a tree enjoying the sunshine. Then I thought I wonder where that robin goes when winter is over? Does it fly to Alberta? Where does it go for the summer? I know it probably does not stay in Palm Springs but flies somewhere. Seeing the robin reminded me that it has a BHAG. It’s goal is so big, that little bird migrates. A small bird flies miles and miles and miles. It sets big goals and knows that it will achieve that goal. That confirmed to me that we need to have the BIG PRAYERS.
Watching that robin was a powerful lesson and I know that lesson came to me that morning from God. The bigger question is what am I going to do with that lesson?
Just a short post for today, but I wanted to share the story about BHAP.
Have a great weekend everyone, and I look forward to hearing from those of you who will start using the phrase BHAP in your life.
