Precious in HIS Sight

Precious in HIS Sight

by Rhonda Barrett ~


“I have no greater joy than to know my children are walking in the truth” (3 John 4).  My greatest joy is knowing that our sons Rex and Luke, their wives and our six grandchildren are walking in the truth…reading God’s Word and doing God’s Word!


Rex and Luke in 1980. Rex was 4 and Luke was 4 months old.



Time goes by fast!


Some people say, “God is sovereign, He is in control, we don’t need to pray. It doesn’t really matter if we pray or not.” According to God’s Word that’s not true.  In James 4:2 is says that “you have not because you do not ask.”


1 Samuel 12:23 reads, “As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by failing to pray for you.”


My precious family, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by failing to pray for you!



There are MANY scriptures about Jesus praying.  And guess what Jesus is doing right now? Interceding for you and me!  (See Romans 8:34).


Prayer is a mystery to me.  Truly it is.  Yet, I’m so thankful for the privilege and  honor of boldly coming to my prayer closet to meet with Him…my Abba Father and me…Friend to friend. He longs for us to spend time with Him.  He desires it sooooo much that He sent His one and only Son–JESUS– to open the “door” to His Throne room for us to enter in.



In James 5:16b we read, “The prayer of a righteous person (mom/dad) is powerful and effective.”


As I think about that verse alone…I have one word for you and me…PRAY!



To the left is this month’s Scripture Prayer Calendar. Click on the Calendar and the Calendar opens BIGGER in a separate window so that you can read the scripture references easily.

Look up the verse for the day and turn it into a prayer. 

The Calendar has helped me, and many other people, faithfully pray for our loved ones day-after-day, month-after-month, year-after-year.  I print my Calendar and keep it with my Bible. Feel free to print the Calendar, too.  Join me as we pray for our loved ones…THE DOOR TO THE THRONE ROOM OF ABBA FATHER IS WIDE OPEN.  THANK YOU, JESUS!




For thy Kingdom…In Jesus Name, Amen!




 We believe the Deaf are the most unreached people group in the world…they are the least, the lost, the last to ‘hear’ the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us through your prayers and financial support as we continue sending HIS Light and Truth to Deaf people everywhere. THANK YOU!”

    Dear Rhonda, The proof of God’s intercession is in our prayer life. I’m so thankful you prayed for me for so many years for deliverance. God may not answer every prayer the way we would expect, but I’m living proof that he answered your prayers for me and you never ceased praying. Thank you for this article and that you never gave up praying for me.
