CBN’s “The Prayer Link” features “Crowned in Promise” Book

This morning the Christian Broadcasting Network program, “The Prayer Link” featured “Crowned in Promise: 100 Prayers for Your Children.” We discussed the inspiration behind the book and the desperate need for parents to crown their children (young and old) in prayer daily!

They also featured a cute photo of my kiddos!

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.  – Isaiah 55:10-12 (KJV)

My first book, “Crowned in Promise: 100 Prayers for Your Children” was released this week! It has been truly encouraging getting photos from those who have purchased the book. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting this ‘passion project.’ How awesome that so many parents have these prayers right now in their hands to claim over their little ones! Glory to God!

“Crowned in Promise” is a prayer resource book for parents – each page contains a themed prayer with applicable Scripture verses interwoven into each unique supplication. David Limbaugh, Cal Thomas, Rebecca St. James and Esther Fleece Allen have written endorsements for the book.

“I’m so grateful to have a resource like Crowned in Promise to guide my prayers for my children. This book is a gift to parents everywhere who desperately want to approach God’s throne of grace on behalf of our children. It is an honor to pray for our children! And if we don’t pray for them, who will?”  — Esther Fleece Allen, bestselling author of “No More Faking Fine” and “Your New Name”

“Most Christians find it difficult to offer original prayers. Even the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. In Crowned in Promise, Kimberly Willingham Hubbard shows how to pray some of the most important prayers of all—for our children. It is a fresh and needed resource or all parents.” — Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist

“As a mother of two dear little girls, I know life as a parent is BUSY. In the hectic rush of keeping our kids fed, clothed, and well-loved, we must prioritize covering our children in prayer. Wonderful tools like this prayer book, Crowned in Promise, help us profoundly in this great endeavor!”  — Rebecca St. James, Christian artist and author

“I’m honored to recommend Crowned in Promise by Kimberly Willingham Hubbard. This will be one of the most valuable resources you’ll find as you endeavor to raise your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. There is nothing more powerful or effective in loving your kids to maturity than God’s Word and prayer. Reading and praying these one hundred promises from God over your children—and continuing to do so once they are adults—will enrich your family life and draw you all to intimacy with the Father. Perhaps even more important, it will raise them up in the imperative practice of habitual and ceaseless prayer.” — David Limbaugh, lawyer, nationally syndicated columnist, and New York Times bestselling author of “Jesus is Risen”

The book has also received glowing reviews on Twitter from Dan Bongino, Shannon Bream, Todd Starnes, David Limbaugh – and more!

Do Not Lose Heart – The God Who Made The World Sees You

Dear One,

Remember as Children of the Light we are not to live in fear “for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7, KJV). It’s easy to fret when we see stories on the news regarding pandemic and plague. We see footage of panic and apprehension. The mention of disease can cripple one’s faith and allow doubt to grab hold of one’s heart. The unknown is scary. It can shake our cores. It will rattle our understanding.

But do not lose heart – the God who made this world sees you. He knows your struggle. He can read your forlorn soul, and he hears your prayers. Now is not the time to sit back and wallow in fear. It is the time for God’s faithful to fall on our knees in prayer. As William Cowper so eloquently wrote,

“When we don’t pray, we quit the fight. Prayer keeps the Christian’s armor bright. And Satan trembles when he sees. The weakest saint upon his knees.”

We may feel uneasy about what is happening around the world, and it’s prudent to take precaution to protect your family and your loved ones. However, we mustn’t shrink back in fear. The God who made the flowers, seas and stars has us in the palms of his Mighty Hands.

The God who closed the lions’ mouths when Daniel was thrown into that dark, dangerous den – is standing right beside us. The God who danced with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the furnace is holding us up with his mighty right hand. The God who led the Israelites out of the dusty desert is guiding us to safety.

May we beseech the Lord on our knees not out of fear; but, with blessed assurance knowing that he is the one “who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). He is the one who can heal our land and work magnificent wonders with his great power.

Let us collectively cry out,

“Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure (Psalm 147: 4,5). His power is limitless and his mercy infinite.

May we take time today to drown out the noise on the news, because it will terrify. We must focus our thoughts on God’s rich promises and fall our knees before he who sits on the eternal throne. He is the one who breathes life into bones to create a vast army.

Let’s remember this world is not our home. We are just visitors. We are here to spread the light and love of the one who made us. As Jesus said,

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

God’s Goodness is Limitless

The infinite goodness of God could fill an infinite number of universes and an infinite number of books. Yet, the sliver we see of it is still a bounty, an abundance. – Jen Wilken.jpgYou are a good Father – always abounding in grace and consumed with a fierce love. You scale buildings to defend your people. Your mighty hand sustains the weak and your spirit resides in the wholly surrendered.

We look to you, Christ, because you are the face of goodness. You are purity defined. You light fire to the ashes of your children’s hearts and develop these coals into beautiful diamonds.

The infinite goodness of God could fill an infinite number of universes and an infinite number of books. Yet, the sliver we see of it is still a bounty, an abundance. – Jen Wilken

We shine at the mention of your name – for we know that you are the mighty lion. Your grasp is firm and your roar victorious. In your presence there is power. It’s electric – running through us as a current both day and night.

We cry holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty! You are everlasting and we cannot help but shield our faces from the glory you shine over your people.

Holding hands in a circle of love – unbroken –we chant at the top of our lungs. We cry out in unison –great are you, God. Your goodness knows no limits.

Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen. – 1 Corinthians 13:10-12 (J.B. Phillips New Testament)

May our heart’s prayer be to emulate this rare decency you show to humankind. May our faces reflect your nature and lead others to repentance.

Empower us to step forward, seek your heart of pure gold and make a difference here on earth – for our treasures do not reside in this temporal life; but, will manifest in the Kingdom to come!

Jesus – The Center of Self Discovery

_The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us._ - C.S. LewisA sense of self worth. We search for this hidden treasure within ourselves. It’s a journey experts tell us — full of twists and turns, trials and errors. We are instructed to head off on a secret self discovery mission — and once we find ourselves, then we will be happy. Then we will have magical answers. Then will we know our purpose. 

Clearly, it’s important to realize our skill sets and unique talents. These beautiful gifts are truly kingdom assets and we should embrace them with all our hearts. 

As Christians, we can get lost in the hype of self discovery. We embark on a mission that is said to beautiful. We are promised to gain an understanding of what fills our joy tanks and what fuels our insides. However, sadly, that joy we’re after simply doesn’t appear like it was promised. 

Could it be because we are looking in the wrong places or to the wrong people? 

The glitter and glamour fades and we are left feeling confused. We want some revelation to burn across the sky — and turn on the lights of our souls. Yet we still feel lackluster and void of vision. 

The simple truth is — if we are looking for self discovery without placing Jesus in the center, we are simply trying to drink water from a well that’s bone dry.

We should be praying — Lord, it’s you I want to define my life. You define me! 

“But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” – 1 Corinthians 6:17 

May we yearn for a “self discovery” that leads us closer to the throne room of Christ. While seeking our self worth, may we look up and see the face of Christ — for he is the answer to every question and remedy we seek! 

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become – because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.” — C.S. Lewis 

May our wandering feet purposefully lead us to the empty tomb of everlasting love. It is through this love that we truly realize the weighty reality of our worth. We see that our lives meant enough for the King of Kings — to shed his precious blood. 

That’s worth, my friend. That is self discovery. 

Refined and Resting in the Waiting

I want a peace beyond my understandingI want to feel it fall like rainIn the middle of my hurtingI want to feel Your arms as they surround meAnd let me know that it's okayTo be here in this placeResting in the.jpgYou’ve called us to do hard things. Life isn’t easy or fair. We ice-skate on treacherous sheets of frozen water in anticipation of the calamity below – holding our breath. Will the ice crack and splinter? Will we fall below into the tundra of the unknown? It depends on what we fix our eyes upon – the good, the lovely, the praiseworthy? If that’s our focus we surely will not drown.

This world spits sulfur and hurls debris at our fragile bodies. We close our eyes – trusting and waiting for deliverance. When will it come, we ask you? You are good, we cry. Show us your favor! Shine down on us the light that illuminates the dark and dissipates the fear hovering over our heads.

We walk like the Israelites trusting in the desert. Gazing at the clouds above and the fire in the sky by night. We know you are near. We cling on to the truth – by faith, not by sight. We know you are watching over our steps; but we are an impatient people. We yearn for the swiftness of your rescue. Unaware of the truth that you are making us stronger in the process, we diligently wait for your army of goodness to infiltrate our camp.

You sing over us – and call us precious gems. We are being refined in the waiting.

“I want a peace beyond my understanding. I want to feel it fall like rain in the middle of my hurting. I want to feel Your arms as they surround me. And let me know that it’s okay to be here in this place. Resting in the peace that only comes. In the waiting.” — Greg Long, In the Waiting 

Abba Father, we are ready for your warrior-like skills. We beseech you, sweet Savior, to wave your banner of victory over our heads. Like the people in the time of Ezra, may we fall face down and worship you. May we place our faces in the dirt and elevate our hands – for you are worthy.

Ezra opened the book in full view of all the people, since he was standing above them all, and as he opened it, all the people stood up. Then Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and with their hands uplifted, all the people said, “Amen, Amen!” Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.” — Nehemiah 8:5-6

We may not see the full image of your beautiful, intricate quilt; but we know you are a good Father. We know that you always deliver on your promises. You are the Savior that was wounded and bled for our transgressions. Our names are etched permanently in the palms of your hands.

We sing – hallelujah when we are still unsure of how you are working. We praise you even when we stand soaked in a thunderstorm. We shout at the top of our lungs in every situation – great are you, God! We pray for our enemies and bless those who curse us because you have defeated death.

You deliver. You show up – and you grant your children favor. May we humble ourselves in your presence, open our hands and expect a blessing because he is who has promised is 100 percent faithful!

Our Creator Speaks Through His Creation

Add a subheadingDo yourself a favor – and immerse yourself in nature. Walk into the woods. Gawk over the intricacy of the countryside. Listen to the birds sing overhead. Feel the cool breeze wash over your skin.

Open your ears to the peaceful sounds of God’s wildlife. Our Creator speaks through his creation; yet, often we are unaware of the soft, gentle words echoed in the forest of his beauty.

Set down your phones. Turn off your WiFi signal. Abandon all the electronic distractions that steal your focus. Sit on a rock in the middle of a rushing stream. Contemplate the Master Artist’s majesty.

Smell in the aroma of freedom all around you. Everything in creation sings in thanksgiving to the One that carefully and thoughtfully designed it.

Your life is a precious gift. Make each day count. Spend your time on what sets your soul on fire. Pray for others in the quiet. Take time to listen to that still small voice that tells you – “This is the way. Walk in it.”

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. – Isaiah 30:21
