I am not sure how anyone else feels but I can hardly believe I am at Day 30 of the month long challenge. I am almost feeling saddened to think it will be over. There has been such community and encouragement which has come from doing this along with so many others. And now the question on the table (or actually on my computer :) ) is – “How do I bring this to a close?”
And the answer is, “I truly have no idea!”
I have learned so much about prayer and about myself. But more so, I have discovered more deeply Who my God is and how do you put that into words? Are there even words?
Prayer brings a desire by which we want to see the heavens open up to give a glimpse of God. Isn’t that what Moses desired – to see God? Prayer has a way of unveiling our eyes, helping us to see life from His perspective.
Isaiah had a vision. He saw the Lord, high and exalted, the train of His robe filling the temple (Isaiah 6:1).
In prayer we come to realize the glory due Him and the power that is His ….
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies!
The whole earth is filled with his glory!” (Isaiah 6:3, NLT)
And it is in prayer I come to understand more fully how much God cares for me, for each one of us …
“What are mere mortals that you should think about them, human being that you should care for them?” (Psalm 8:4, NLT)
He does care for us even more than we can comprehend. His heart is moved as He hears our cries and prayers. Not a single word goes unheard. Not a single tear unnoticed.
It is in prayer I find my heart filled with a gratitude for all He is in my life, for the many times He has intervened and responded and saved me from myself. It is in prayer I find my heart filled with praise and Him filling every part of my praise.
And so today I pray …
Lord, heighten my spiritual senses to
see that which is not visible
hear that which is not audible
sense that which is not tangible
believe that which is unbelievable.
Teach me to sort through
the noises of this world to
hear and discern Your powerful,
wonderful, pure, precious voice.
