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! 🙂

Notice the Stream

... of countless ways in which
Our Creator constantly romances us.

Prayer to Prepare for the Day

be-prepared

Father, we put today under Your authority and care, trusting in Your infinite grace and mercy.

We thank You for today and all it may bring that is from You and we bless You for it.

We give You every thought and intention and ask that You sanctify them and bring them in accord with Your mind and heart.

We stand in You against every scheme of the enemy that has been sent against us either in the night or today, so that Your perfect will may be done in our lives.

We put all natural and spiritual family members under Your protection and bless them with Your love and truth.

We bless all who are in any leadership role with protection from the enemy and ask that their wills come into alignment with Your Holy will for the good of all people in their care.

We pray for the Kingdom to happen in our lives and around the world, as it is in heaven may it be so on earth for Your glory.

We pray in union with all Your people on earth and in Heaven the prayer You asked us to pray:

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
You give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.


This prayer (by Molly Sutherland) is one of the prayers our little angel Hrachik gave us at the birth certificate office in the story I told a couple weeks ago about our miracle. 🙂 Since then we’ve been praying it & the others every day. So powerful. Thank You, Abba!
