If It’s a Care–It’s a Prayer

My Heart’s Cry–REVISED! When I originally posted this a few days ago, I felt something was missing. The following day a partial Bible verse came to me: “by prayer with thanksgiving,” and I knew that what I had written was a prayer, not just a post. So I added “In the strong and mighty name of Jesus,” to the end, along with the full scripture that had popped into my mind. (Thank you, God.) And I realized just as a dear friend of mine always says, “If it’s a care, it’s a prayer.”

Dear God,

I long to experience more of You—not just in what I know about You, but in who You are—to be in Your presence more fully, more often, no, always. There are times, more than I care to admit, and yet here I am admitting them, when I approach the edge of Your majesty and linger there.

It’s as though I’m at Your front door. My hand is lifted—ready to knock, but I hesitate. What is it? What stops me? Why can’t I go beyond the barrier? I do feel a barrier—not from You, but in me.

Help me, Jesus. When these blockades come—take my hand and guide me over, under, around or through them so that I can be present and experience Your presence.

All I know about You and Your Holy Word, can never replace being with You. You are the greatest gift!

I pray these things in the strong and mighty name of Jesus.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 4:6-7)

Jesus' Love Eyes
