These are prayers that have come out of my spirit. I signed them with the Cherokee word ᎠᏓᎨᏳᏗ ("Adageyudi") which means "beloved". It's not a tribal name, but it's a very special word to me that tells me who I am in Jesus. If I were to somehow forget every name or every thing that I am but one, I would want to remember that my Creator loves me. And that would be enough.

  1. These are prayers that have just come out of my spirit... I don't know quite how to describe it. They just rose up and came out. Often like poems... it's like I become still, and find something in me wants to say something, and wants to say it this way. I think maybe one thing, but it's not quite it... something else is there, and I have to let it come out in its time. And yet it is also the deepest "me" inside, and what finally comes out is from the deepest "me", and I'm moved & melted.

  2. I was wondering to myself whether these prayers ought to be grouped together with the "poems", because I couldn't quite tell the difference between the two sometimes! But I prayed and felt impressed to leave things as they were.

    Tonight after posting the latest one here ("I'm Tired, Creator"), I noticed what was happening inside my spirit as I was stilled enough for Him to draw out of me what was inside, for me to understand what it was I needed to let out in prayer. And I realized that somehow, these prayers come from a different place, a different chamber in my heart and in my spirit. I don't understand it, but something is different inside between these.

    Just mentioning this for my own sake. It's kind of fascinating to me. ;-)
