My Prayer to the Father, August 6, 2012

Heavenly Father,
You, who are the builder
Of all.
You have allowed us
To build our houses
Within the realm
Of what You built first.

Heavenly Father
You, who are the Almighty God;
Great is Your name;
Great is Your faithfulness;
You are truth;
You are the eternal light
That makes the darkness
As bright as the
Noon day sun.

Heavenly Father
From where You sit
There is no hiding
From Your eyes.
You see everything, all;
There is nothing hidden
In the heart of man
That is not open and
Bare before You.

Heavenly Father,
You, who have made the secret place;
You who have made a place
Where all who desire to know
Truth can reside
In gladness of heart
And spirit.

Heavenly Father,
You, who are all and in all,
And through all
That which is good
And beautiful
And worthy of praise
Comes to man.
You, who made man
A little lower than the angels
And gave him honor
And glory
And put all within the
Grasp of his little hand
And underneath his feet.
Man, who is nothing more
Than a breath and
Sigh upon Your lips.

Heavenly Father,
How amazing it is, and
Beyond comprehension that
You could love us so.
How tragic that we who are
So valued in Your eyes
Cannot see how special
How valuable we are.
What sadness we bear
For nothing
Because of the blindness
Of our spiritual eyes.

Heavenly Father,
You, who in the beginning
Made us perfect;
Who gave all man could
Ever want, ever need;
Who You gave free passage to;
Who You allowed to partake
Of everything.
You, who held nothing back
But for one tree
And he could not stay away.

Heavenly Father,
You, who knew their coming failure
Knew from eternity past
That they would need a Savior,
And in Your eternal spirit
You made it possible
For man to be redeemed;
You, once again
Took it upon Yourself to
Provide that which
Man needed most of all;
Light to see by.

Heavenly Father,
You, provided in Your love,
In Your holiness, and justice
And perfection
What man in his chosen darkness
Did not deserve;
Your, Son.
He who from eternity past
Set upon the throne
Chose to take on the flesh of man
And to walk upon this earth
Tempted in every way
As we are,
Yet, He was without sin.
Perfect in every way.

Heavenly Father,
He, who knew no sin
Took sin upon himself;
The sins of the world,
Our sins,
And stood before royalty
With no word upon
His lips,
And like a sheep
Led to slaughter
Took not the easy way.

Heavenly Father,
He who bore our sins
Took all the worst that man
Can do, that we can do,
And turned not away;
And, carried His cross
Upon bleeding shoulders
To a hill far away.

Heavenly Father,
What agony to endure
A body wracked with pain,
Broken, bloody,
Who in His brokenness
Took all the darkness
That lay upon man
And lay upon His cross
As the nails were driven in.

Heavenly Father,
Thank You. Thank You.
You, who gave all
So that we might live.
Have you not the right
To expect our honor,
Our worship;
Our praise?

Heavenly Father
I have only one request of You;
Make me a reminder
To all I meet what precious blood
Was spilt upon that cross.
Make me a reminder
What sin costs.
Make me a reminder
Of what love is.
Make me a reminder
As long as I live.

In Jesus name, I pray,
Amen.

 

 

 

My Prayer to the Father, August 1, 2012

Heavenly Father,
I come to You, Father, with a grateful heart,
A heart filled with Love and devotion,
A heart that adores You, and longs to give You
The worship and praise that You are so deserving of.
A token, a mere trifle
In comparison to the glorious blessings
You’ve bestowed upon me
And all of Your people.

You, Heavenly Father
Who have given us such wonderful, indescribable gifts,
Who have given us all;
All in the sense that we can’t even imagine or understand
What All this little three letter word can contain.
You, who, in your Love and mercy,
Have given us riches we yet to know,
And have given us the key to eternity.

Heavenly Father,
Who is above You that I should give him heed?
Who is beyond You that I should seek?
Who has given so much,
Made such an unimaginable sacrifice?
Only You, Father?
Yes, Father, only You…
Yet, You, the Glorious Incomparable You,
In Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
You, who have in every way
Have provided us all that we could ever need
All that we could ever want.

Heavenly Father,
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
How little these two words can express what I feel,
How little all my words, all my words,
Convey all that I feel and think about You,
And yet they are all I have
And I know Father, how far they fall short
In their expression of what I feel,
And what I wish to give You,
And what You so richly deserve.
How can anything I speak be pleasing to You?
How can my words in any sense
Make a whit of difference to You?
No, Father, it’s not my words I know that
You so long to hear
For they are as a tinkling symbol
And sounding brass.

Heavenly Father,
I know what You desire for You have told me
For You have shown me time and time again,
And it’s all that You require;
That I should Love You with all my
Heart,
Soul,
Mind
And Strength.
Yes, Father, I know what You desire,
And I know equally well
Heavenly Father
That by myself, and in and of myself
I’m incapable of giving You this.
And, I know Father,
That left to my own devices, to my own
Imaginings,
To all that I have in the way of
Heart and mind
That it would not draw me an inch closer
To You.

Heavenly Father,
That is why I come before You now
On bended knees, with arms outstretched
And tears flooding my eyes.
My heart overflowing with all I know of Love
And adoration, and reverence.
Because I know, Father, that You, only You,
In all that You are
From the very beginning, from the depth of nothing
Had me in Your thoughts,
In Your plans,
In Your heart.
And, that is why You, in and of Yourself
Provided that which I could never provide
A way, a bridge,
To carry me from the depth of my darkness
Into Your glorious and eternal light
In the form and person of
Your precious Son
My beloved Love and Savior
Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father,
It is He who is my All.
He, who represents Everything.
This world in all that it is,
Can in no wise
Even should it have no spot upon it
In the way of greed,
And self-glorification
ever come close to showing
Who, He is in all His perfection,
In all His glory.

Heavenly Father,
It is because of my Jesus
That I have hope, that I have certainty of
A brighter tomorrow,
That I have hope that this darkness
That threatens will not overshadow me.
It is His presence in me
That sustains, that encourages,
That gives me strength,
That indeed gives me all that I need
And could ever want
In the way of
Love, and Mercy,
Justice and compassion,
In and all things that I might have need of
Can be found in He
Who wore the crown of thorns for me.

Heavenly Father,
I come to You with a plea upon my lips,
I ask Father, that You shower
The family I’ve been given with all that You are.
The family that has grown in the realm of
Your love and Grace
To include all that I’ve come to know,
To each and every person I’ve encountered,
To all who have blessed me with Your presence.
To all who have shown me in countless ways
And expressions what it is,
And what joy inexpressible it is
To receive that which is most dear
A pure, and tender Love
That knows not of self,
But much of You.

Heavenly Father,
I pray that You give them all grace,
That You strengthen their hearts and minds,
That You renew their courage
And reenergize their faith,
That You make them bold and relentless
In their quest for truth,
And that You may give them a lion’s voice
To shatter the complacency of those around them
Who in their search for self
Will lose all.

Heavenly Father,
I pray You place Your healing hand
Upon the sick, the ill, the chronic suffer of pain,
Those who have tasted eternal torment,
And who are weak in body, but mighty in love.
I pray You strengthen them
As only You can,
That You show through all who Love You
What can be done, what can be accomplished
Through those who will
Lay it all aside and give it all to You,
All in the way of pain,
Of loss,
Of heartache,
Of longing for anything other than You,
And what can be had
In the way of Life, and Love, and Spirit
When all is surrendered to You.

In Jesus name, I pray,
Amen.
