Praying That You Would Be Planted In Holy Soil


Dear Hearts, this is week 2 of the “Fridays Are For Faith ‘n Friends” blog hop! Praise God!!! … Every Friday I pray that you’ll join me here for prayer, love, and encouragement. As I explained in week 1, I may not be writing a message every Friday, but I will have a focal passage of Scripture in which I will be meditating on as I write a prayer to encourage your hearts. I will also be available to pray with or for you throughout the day and you can contact me for prayer anytime by clicking here. Also, each week I will share with you my favorite post from the previous week’s link-up.  … So, link-up, be encouraged, and spread the love!

(Hosea 10:12 GNT- I said, ‘Plow new ground for yourselves, plant righteousness, and reap the blessings that your devotion to Me will produce. It is time for you to turn to Me, your Lord, and I will come and pour out blessings upon you.’)

Abba, this morning I ask that You would help us to plant ourselves fully and completely within Your holy soil that the seed of Your promises for our lives would divinely take root and beautifully blossom within and throughout our hearts, minds, souls, and spirits. Father, help us to position ourselves that we would be wholly aligned with Your heart and purpose. Lord, as we turn our affection and devotion towards You, I ask that You would come and pour out Your blessings upon us just as Your Word says. We know that no word from You will ever fail or return to You void, but will accomplish Your intended purpose. So, we honor You, we praise You, and we give You our worship and all of the glory. We thank You that Your Word is perfect and true. Father, we love You and we wholeheartedly welcome You to be God in our lives. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would rest upon each and every heart now and forevermore. In the name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

Happy Friday! I love you guys!

Believe, Be Beautiful, Be Brilliant, and Be Blessed! 🙂

  1. Hey Tai,

    I like that part of the verse that says, “plow new ground for yourselves…” It does seem that God gives us so many chances to plow new ground, doesn’t it!

    I came over on Grace and Truth to find your post.

    And, I’m going to link up now with Faith and Friends!

    Hope you have a blessed weekend~

  2. Hi Tia, I’m neighboring you at WordswithWinter today. Thanks for sharing about your new linkup. 🙂 Will come back on Friday and participate. 🙂 Btw, the end of that verse makes me all goose-bumpy, “…turn to me, your Lord, and I will come and pour out blessings upon you.” Love how He’s so eager in His faithfulness. 🙂

    • Hi, Debbie! … This is just week 2 of the blog hop, so you haven’t missed much. And I’m just a host in being one of the Writers for Deb Wolf’s “Faith ‘n Friends”. It was all her idea, so she’s the one who actually started it and invited me to co-host. I would be honored to have you link-up with me every Friday! Happy to have you visit with me today! Infinite blessings to you, Love! 🙂


    • Thank you! And that’s awesome, Betsy! Happy to have you! I’m running a little late today, but I’m getting ready to post in just a few minutes. I wasn’t going to write a post this morning for the blog hop, only a prayer. But THE LORD had a different plan. 😉 … GOD bless you, beautiful friend! 🙂
