Ham and Swiss Omelette Recipe

Prayers of Praise & Ham and Swiss Omelette

Philippians 4:6 (cev)

Don’t worry about anything; but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God.


Last week, I completed a plan in the Bible app called “Building a Daily Prayer Habit” by Echo Prayer. It offered a lot of really great tips and tools on prayer, but then I took away the most was from the tips section on the very first day: “Stop associating prayer with anything other than God. Teach yourself to think ‘being with God’ every time you think of prayer.”

Woah, right? It sounds so simple and obvious, yet, how many of us would approach prayer the way that we do if we truly thought about it as simply “being with God”? My mind drifted to my last 5 prayers, 10 prayers even, and I realized that most of the time, I’m only really asking for something when I’m talking to God. Would you want to hang out with someone that only used your time together to ask for something? Now, I know that God isn’t like us and doesn’t get exhausted by our interactions and my desire for more and more of something. But still, I felt like I wanted to change my part of the conversation. I didn’t feel good about what I was bringing to the time we spent together.

So, I decided to do something a little different – and it will make this devotional look a little different today too, but hang with me, because it’s been a really eye-opening, and even kind of fun, exercise.

The next time I closed my Bible and got ready to start my prayers, I told God that I was coming with a different format; that maybe I would stumble over my words and be slower to think and converse, but my intentions were (hopefully) good. And then I began offering thanks for all of the things I would normally make requests about. For the remainder of the devotional, I’m going to share what my prayer request would have been, and what I opted to offer praise for instead. At the end, you’ll do the same thing in your journal exercise.

Need/Request: I’m sick and have been dealing with a cold the last 5 days.

Praise: Thank you for my normal health, and that feeling this miserable is a rarity in my life.

Need/Request: I still feel lost and passionless most days.

Praise: Thank you for giving me a sound mind and an able body to walk with you as you help me to see who I am daily.

Need/Request: Our marriage has it’s ups and downs and can be challenging.

Praise: Thank you for the gift of a husband who loves me and the character You’re building in me through those challenges.

Need/Request: I struggle to stay disciplined with my healthy eating habits.

Praise: Thank you for the abundance of food that’s readily available, and for the strength You’ve promised to give me in times of temptation.

Need/Request: I’ll never get it all right. No matter how hard I try, I continue to flail and fail my way through life.

Praise: Thank you for being a God of grace and mercy, who allows me to show up exactly as I am.


Now it’s your turn. Today, write down all of your prayer requests, and then change them into gratitude and praise! Focus on the good things that God’s done, doing, and will continue to do in your life. And know that your Father already knows exactly what you need.


Spend time offering those prayers of gratitude and praise that you wrote in your journal today.

Tips & Tools

As always; the famous omelette tips are available incase you need a little reminder!

  • Use the right pan. A non-stick pan is essential!
  • Spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray or grease it with oil/butter – I still do this even with a non-stick pan.
  • Make sure your pan has ample time to heat up before you pour your egg batter in.
  • Pay attention to your eggs and try to keep them loosened on the bottom of the pan at all times.
