Focus on a patch of blue. ………..connect. PRAY

Beyond our visible world no matter how beautiful our natural surroundings, prayer focus should be ABOVE.   

                Our eyes too should find focus above so the natural does not blur the vital contact to be made in the spiritual.  

               In 2019 I learned a vital prayer lesson.    (We know we can pray everywhere and anywhere.  ‘ He walks with me and talks with me’ but a commitment to prayer in a daily discipline requires a focus even if praying as we work or move around.    

                 After major surgery in 2015 and several bowling balls of life limiting health events and getting ‘older’ I became a more seated person.   

                   Praying however did not become static.  It became vitally ALIVE.   Prayer took me where my legs never could!

                 Despite where, God encouraged me to focus beyond and connect with HIM.

                   The image above is from one memorable prayer time that began the new journey. 

        Let God show you the FOCUS, even if your limitations are confining you inside.    Relax.       Focus above ……. On your Saviour.


        Beyond the limiting visible canopy of these trees, Lord I focus on a patch of blue. I come to YOU as Your Child.  

          I surrender my heart in Love to You and ask You please to Purify it and forgive its sinful ways.    

           I bring my ‘needs’ for self and ask the deepest questions and share all wants and longings but then I ask my Lord to let His Spirit then lead and guide for the needs of ‘others’ ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE.  Show me Lord, lead and guide me how I should pray, according to YOUR Will and Purpose.   

                         BELOVED SAVIOUR Who rides the Heavens…..

                                  Hear my prayers

                                                             in Jesus` Name a-men.   

        I am surprised and shocked for Whom and for what situation, even from far across the seas. the Spirit has led me to pray.  Particularly in more recent days.

         It is not my concern, ‘Although, I share often in the pain).      

               He however leads me…….I am but a broken vessel in HIS Hands.

                 He leads…….I KNOW I have C o n n e c t e d,  

                I know I have prayed.    


……Find HIS patch of blue in all life’s dark and stormy clouds.

Focus beyond….

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    So true, Faye. It is absolutely necessary to focus and sometimes that is not easy. This came at just the right time for both Mum and I. Thank you for the encouragement.
