Really? My 'wildest dreams'?

Have you ever prayed the scriptures? I've often had specific scripture come to mind during different times in my life that kind of 'got me through'... that became a kind of mantra for me... but I never really thought of it as actually 'praying the scriptures,' and this phrase 'praying the scriptures' has come up a lot in some my readings lately.

Today, as I was working on some things.  A particular scripture kept coming to mind over and over again.  I even paraphrased it for DH at one point today.  I read it as the scripture in the daily devotion book I'm reading one day last week.  It is from Malachi 3:10,  from The Message, "Test me in this and see if I don't open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams."

Isn't that awesome!  Wow, I think for the month of April that will be a prayer of mine.  Not necessarily for any specific blessings but for just an abundance of blessings whatever they may be! I think I'll write it up and put it in a few different places where I'll see and remember to pray it through out my day.


  1. I have placed it on my bathroom mirror and the frig! I will be praying this.

  2. I have some pretty wild dreams! Love this verse, I don't remember it ever jumping out before!

  3. I do too, Rebecca! lol It has been on my mind ever since I read it. Funny how that happens sometimes, huh? :o)
