Father, thank you for anointing us with the oil of gladness! You were glad when you set us apart from this world. You gave us joy unspeakable and full of glory. Jesus, thank you for being our joy which makes us strong and thank you for making us your joy which inspired you to endure the cross.

So many times when I heard of The Secret Place in the Bible, I felt as if it was a state of mind or a state of heart. I did not realize that this was a particular place that you go to, to pray to the Lord. One night, I experienced an intense dream where the Lord spoke to me saying: “You are far from My kingdom.” I woke up praying and asking Him to show me how to get closer because I knew that was something He wanted.
I have seen the power of prayer. It is real. When you pray a prayer that is not in the dominion of iniquity or the flesh, it indeed comes to pass. There was a time I would pray for something, and it seemed as if it would not get answered. It was as if praying was for nothing.
