Praying Psalm 28

Has there been a time when it seemed that God was not listening to you? Did you feel as if He was far away? Be encouraged that God sees and hears you. He will renew your sense of intimacy with Him, for He has not moved. Take your eyes off the problems and raise them to praise Him for His …

A Prayer That Prepares You For Love

Dear Father in Heaven, May I bask in the newness of Your love and mercy every morning, and extend this grace to the one in front of me. Make me a channel of Your steadfast love (Lamentations 3:22-23). The righteous gives and does not hold back (Proverbs 21:26); create in me a righteous, giving heart. Give me a heart that …

Standing In The Gap For One Another

Recently my church has been studying the book of Nehemiah. The prophet Nehemiah has been called by God back to Israel to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem. It was a difficult time in history with lots of opposition to the rebuilding. There were times during the rebuilding when they stood with one hand on the work with the other hand …

Prayers For Dreamers

I’m a dreamer. I didn’t know I was a visionary until I started dreaming with God about how I could do something for Him that no one else was doing. Since I started Jill Monaco Ministries and Single Matters, I have done things I’d never dreamed of before. Because before then I didn’t allow myself to dream with Him. I …

Does Your New Year Resolution Include Jesus?

By now, there’s a good chance your Christmas tree has been taken down and all the pine needles vacuumed up, if you had chosen to go for the real thing. All the lights have been unplugged and put away neatly (so as not to find them tangled) for next year. There are no longer signs of wrapping paper, but presents …

The Most Important Prayer Before Marriage

It is OH SO EASY to see the weaknesses in other people. If we aren’t careful, our brains can size someone up based on their lack of social I.Q., the way their insecurity shows in their nervous little laugh, and their glaring sin. But wait … does that mean it is easy for them to see the weaknesses in me? …

The Vitality Of Leaning Into Pain

As I pulled up to my house just off of the Georgia Tech campus, I was excited to get home and see my roommates. I had been in Florida for the previous two days celebrating my Grandmother’s 82nd birthday. It was a good time. My friend Phil Clarke and I had gotten into a habit of often walking around the campus …

The Art Of Sincere Apology

Apologizing can be one of the hardest things you ever have to do! After all, it requires humbling yourself and admitting you were wrong. Sometimes apologizing is about your wrong response to what they did. When you seek forgiveness, it is important that you sincerely express your regret over what you said or did—or perhaps over what you did not …

Prayerfully Preparing For Marriage

I’m 16 years into my second marriage. If you and I had some time together in a coffee shop to chat about your hopes for marriage and what I’ve learned from one failed marriage and this one, this is what I’d say: Praying for yourself is the most proactive, effective thing you can do to prepare for a great marriage. …

Is A Mountain Keeping You From What You Want?

Don’t scale mountains, level them. I am not a mountaineer. Camping and hiking—no, thank you!  “Roughing it” has always been a stay at the Holiday Inn. While I prefer the comforts of an all-inclusive resort, I’ve spent many trips pioneering through wild terrain. Whether mountain high or valley low, the enemy attempts to erect monumental obstacles in life that divert …
