Minimal Effective Dose Reached–HALLELUJAH!!!

glimpse of heaven

Abba,

YOU. ARE. (I pause in Your Presence…) O Holy, Radiant, Exalted One, Most High, Creator of all Universes ever in existence, Being without end or beginning, Your Glory is incomparable and unexplainable. Your ways are so infinitely beyond our ways. Your timing is impeccable perfection. Your guidance and Presence are more magnificent than an entire planet made of sparkling diamonds. Your Heavenly Sanctuary is the only place worth being.

I confess that I have lived 34 (of my 38) years “knowing” You, yet barely knowing You at all. Restless but sedate and content with milk. Occasionally hungry for more, but not ravenous enough to do whatever it takes to push past all resistance and break through the fog of complacency into the very Presence. The veil may have been torn on “Good Friday,” making it possible for common man (and not just the High Priest) to enter the Holy of Holies, but it wasn’t destroyed. We still have to choose to pass through the veil to stand before You. And I confess that THAT is all I want now.

THANK YOU!!!!! Oh sweet Jesus, Heavenly Father, and Holy Spirit, THANK YOU. Thank You for Your perfect timing, for my many messages in the night, for getting me up at 5 a.m. once again, for my amazing girlfriends #LOL, for the power of prayer, for allowing me to Hear from You, that You’ve always wanted me to hear from You, for the clarity regarding my next steps with social entrepreneurship and business, for that not being the pinnacle but only a sidebar, for my perfectly supportive husband and absolutely sublime children, for this one life, for the Passion translation, for Psalms, for giving me even the teensiest taste of Your Glory. Thank You that while I may not have experienced a “breakthrough” during my one-hour prayer-and-seeking-Your-voice session yesterday, my breakthrough did come in the night as I lay in bed. And thank You for Lorrie’s guidance and encouragement about how to hear Your voice, Kori’s prayers, and Ian’s willingness to watch the kids while it all went down.

Please, I beg You, be the Lord of my Life today. Surround me with Your wrap-around presence and fill me completely with Your Holy Spirit. Please baptize me in the all-consuming flame of Your Love. Fan this fire, keep it burning bright, remind me of You a zillion times an hour, and keep me on a very short leash. May the words of my mouth and every thought in my mind be a pleasant fragrance to You, my Love and my Life.

In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen and so it is! 🙂

Our Creator constantly romances us.

Prayer for Taking the Ground of the Day

paradise header

Abba,

I give my entire day to You, binding all that I am to all that You are–heart, body, mind and spirit–for Your perfect will to be done today in my life.

I loose from myself all accumulated baggage from the past–old resentments, negative reactions and memories, defense mechanisms and attitudes that have become strongholds in my life. Whatever is loosed in Heaven I choose to loose on earth.

Taking a spiritual shower as I take a natural one (Hebrew 10:22), I ask You to make the water holy (John 5:7) and to bless the water for cleansing and healing.

I ask that You would baptize me anew in the fire and light of Your Holy Spirit inside and out (Matthew 3:11).

As I dress for the day, I put on the garment of praise (think of at least 3 things you can honestly praise God for, and genuinely thank Him from your heart).

Over this, I also put on the Armor of God (Ephesians 6):

The Helmet of (Your) Salvation
The Breastplate of (Your) Righteousness
The Belt of (Your) Truth
The Shoes of (Your) Peace
The Sword of the Spirit
The Shield of Faith

And I ask You, Holy Spirit, to bring it up to Your standards of battle worthiness.

I bring myself into complete alignment with You, Lord. I command my body, mind, emotions, will and spirit to come under the authority of the Holy Spirit, that I may be a delight to You, Heavenly Father.

I determine that I will be on the lookout for loveliness all around me this day and talk to You often about Your creation, in praise and worship.

I choose life in its fullest dimension.

Glory in it!

Amen

(Though I have moved the order around a bit and changed a few words, I did not write this prayer, nor do I know who did. It is another of the prayers given to us by our sweet angel Hrachik, whom we met during our miracle at the birth certificate office. For the full story, click here.)
