Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2 (NKJV)
Dear TEA CUPP Friends,
I’m so happy to announce My TEA CUPP Prayers Book is finally here and has won the devotional category of the Christian Author Awards! So many years and so many prayers went into this book. All praise and glory to Jesus!
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Psalm 103:1 (NKJV)
My TEA CUPP Prayers is available in print from the publisher Xulon and from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You may view your ebook right now from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Apple users may find it on iBooks. Thank you for all who are interested! I’ve listed a few more ways to get my book at the end of this article, including how to recieve an autographed copy :-).
These 77 Devotions were compiled over the past 15 years as I prayed and raised my children. The book invites you to a daily TEA time with Jesus. Each week I share with you a different part of the TEA CUPP acronym, helping you pray by using God’s Word. Every message includes a “Today’s TEA CUPP,” encouraging you in your prayer life. I pray this book brings you closer to Jesus as you meet with Him each day for TEA.
A peek at the back of the book jacket:
What: TEA with Jesus
Where: Your house
Why: Because Jesus longs to hear from you
How: Just open your BIBLE and your heart
YOU are invited to TEA with Jesus TODAY!!! “Come to Me,” Jesus calls in Matthew 11:28. Please accept! Allow God to draw you into a daily TEA time with Jesus through this 77-day devotional.
My TEA CUPP Prayers is an invitation to women everywhere to sit down daily with Jesus for a cup of tea. The TEA CUPP acronym provides the parts of prayers, as we use the BIBLE to talk with our Lord. Here new Christians discover a way to draw nearer to Jesus and old Christians taste a new flavor for their prayers. Women will dig deeper into God’s Word, come closer to Jesus by meeting with Him each day, and unleash the power of the Holy Spirit through their prayers.
T = Thanksgiving
E = Exalting His Name
A = Admitting my sins

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
What’s next? Now I am compiling Mom’s TEA CUPP Prayers as a second devotional book, with more recent writings. I also have dreams of other projects as God allows. I’m available to come speak to your ladies’ group and invite them to TEA with the King of kings. Thank you for praying for me!
Today’s TEA CUPP: Remember, if you feel unworthy of an invitation to TEA with our Lord, Jesus shared water with a scandalous Samaritan woman when Jews did not associate with Samaritans, and men did not speak to the women. Jesus certainly is ready to meet with you. Behold, He stands at the door and knocks. My friend, please say, “Come in, Lord Jesus, come in.”
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 (NKJV)
