AN EXERCISE IN PRAYER BY THE HOLY SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4667.jpgAs we grow in Christ, as we grow in prayer.  There are just some things, we should do in the Holy Spirit.  

Repentance, always clears the slate, I believe.  When we come to Christ humble, repentant, for perhaps those things we think, or have allowed into our spirits, that could corrupt us.  We need to be careful.  Things that are sin in His eyes.  

But I just had a sense, that when we pray, we really need to see with our “spiritual eyes.”  We need to see Jesus, there, when we pray.  

Christ told us, He would not leave, or forsake us.  He told us, that He would never leave us.  

I believe the Lord, gave me this thought, to help us in our faith.  To help us see.  Sometimes, we ask for things, and we are not sure, He has heard us, or we are not sure, if  there is a way.  

But Christ told us, He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  He told us, if we asked in His name, the father would grant it.  He told us if we believed it would be ours.  He told us, that He would give us the desires of our heart, as we delight in Him.  Oh yes, give God the glory, honor, and praise, as you approach His throne.  

How can we delight in our Lord?  Well, one way, is when we pray, actually open your spiritual eyes, to see Christ there, listening.  

Let me repeat that.  Look at Christ there, when you close your eyes, to pray.  See Him, attentive to your need.  Because again, He is there, He will not leave or forsake you.  See Him, in the spirit, the Holy Spirit. 

Quiet your spirit, to just hearing His voice.  Read a King James scripture, that is Holy, and anointed, and let Him, counsel you.  I cannot even count the many times, that God has spoken to me, in need of an answer, and I just opened up my King James Bible.

He says, He knows our desire, even before we speak it.  So, think, and ponder on Him, when you go to His throne.  See Him, in His majesty.  See Him, as you seek His Kingdom, and all things will be added unto you.  

Sometimes words do not come to us.  We may be hurting, we may be distracted, but as a disciple of Christ, we do need to discipline ourselves.  Just look for Him, in the spirit.  Beware of counterfeits though, in the spirit, and beware of the enemies voice, who always tries to be deceptive.  This is why repentance, is so important.  

And never, ever, set up an idol, or a symbol, that would grieve Him.  He hates idolatry.  So get rid of such things, even in prayer.  Now I know many might disagree with that thought, but Father, is very jealous in these matters.  And wants us to search for Him by the spirit, not by a graven image, that is even a commandment that tells us not to set up.  

THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE, ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH.  EXODUS 20:4  KJV.

YE SHALL MAKE YOU NO IDOLS NOR GRAVEN IMAGE, NEITHER REAR YOU UP A STANDING IMAGE, NEITHER SHALL YE SET UP ANY IMAGE OF STONE IN YOUR LAND, TO BOW DOWN UNTO IT:  FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  Leviticus 26:1.  KJV.

We have to try and learn and know, what pleases our Lord.  Anyway, Christ, knows by the spirit, what you need.  Know, that He is listening there, searching your heart.  Knowing the mind of the spirit.  Because He makes “intercession” for you according to the will of God.  

AND HE THAT SEARCHETH THE HEARTS KNOWETH WHAT IS THE MIND OF THE SPIRIT, BECAUSE HE MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR THE SAINTS ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD.  ROMANS 8:27  KJV.

When you know He is there, when you know He is seeing you, it just makes your faith, easier.  It makes your prayer have a sense of accomplishment.  Because He sees you, He is there.  Just see HIM with your spiritual eyes.  Try to please Him, humble, when you pray.  

I share this, because as an intercessor, I have learned some things, in trying to understand what works, and what does not.  What pleases God.  But if we are humble, if we are taking the whole word of God, that is King James word, and we are not using anything counterfeit or corrupt, that the enemy would use to deceive.  I believe our chances in prayer, can make a difference.  And every one knows, that I only recommend a King James Bible because it is holy.  It is anointed.  It is preserved in Heaven and earth, and I believe when you use it, your on the same page with God.  And thats always the goal….

Never underestimate prayer, but do what you can to make sure your prayer is heard.  Sin, will separate us from God, and He will not hear.  But the sweetest, simplest prayers can be heard, even in our child like faith.  

Looking for Him, to be there, when you pray, is just an exercise in prayer.  In faith….

Blessings, and love Elena Ramirez 

 

DID YOU KNOW IF YOU GET OFFENDED YOU ARE NOT ROOTED IN LOVE?


The Lord, has been bringing the message of Love, to me, more and more. And with the assistance of this photograph of roots, I will share, the Lords heart.

Yesterday, I found myself challenged by someone, who wrote something, about one of my postings. It actually challenged me.  I realized, I had a choice.  To either walk, in love, or get offended.

And for a moment, I paused, and walked away from it. Though it was on my heart, I knew it was wrong, yet I ministered to myself.

This person, was a voice of reason.  Yet, I know how the devil is, he speaks truth, but the underline thought was accusing.  It was twisted, and it was meant to offend me.  But, I just sensed, I needed to be careful, and not to fall into a trap.  I did not want to lose my peace.

But God brought this scripture to my heart. AND HAVE NO ROOT IN THEMSELVES, AND SO ENDURE BUT FOR A TIME; AFTERWARD, WHEN AFFLICTION OR PERSECUTION ARISETH FOR THE WORDS SAKE, IMMEDIATELY THEY ARE OFFENDED. MARK 4:17.

I had to stop, and just say a prayer, and walk in love….I had to see myself, if I was rooted, and grounded. In love.

You know, as a Christian, we will be tested, we will be challenged, in our faith, in our walk, and maybe even by other Christians. God is love….and if we are in Christ, and his love, we are to love too. Christ told us that, people would know that we were Christians by the evidence of love.

This is basically a reminder, to be careful, of the antics of the enemy. Because his goal, is to get us out of love. To get us out of that place, where we would not receive Gods blessings, because we did not endure, in love.

Get rooted and grounded in love. Don’t let the devil steal your blessings, because you got out of love….

When you are rooted and grounded in love, situations, can come to you, but those roots, kick in, hold their ground, (literally) and you are not moved.

Just like a flower, with strong roots.  In fact, this root, I planted from this photograph, will now grow, and reach full potential. It really does not look like much.  But I gave it, a chance, when I pulled it up, out of the ground, and I put it in water, to strengthen its roots.

With the care I will give it. It has a better chance. Well God, is that way too, with us.  He cares for us, he protects us, he loves us but when we are rooted and grounded in love, we are being, as his example.

Keep rooted and grounded in love. Be careful, not to get offended. Quickly forgive others, so a root of bitterness does not kick in, instead. Walk in love, practice that, so you can withstand…

Renew your mind with the word of God, so you can endure. That the spirit of Christ, will dwell in your heart, by faith, to show, that you are rooted and grounded in love. Ephesians 4:17. (read it yourself from Gods word)

Praying this inspires you, and blesses you, and reminds you to walk in love, so you can stay rooted and grounded.

So, nothing will move you. That is maturity in Christ, in Gods love….The illustration of these flowers listed here, below, is what they look like, when healthy, and rooted in love.

What a difference, when allowed to grow roots.  Grounded, in love.  

Blessings, and Just my thoughts, feel free to share…

Elena Ramirez..

A Prayer of Hope and Honor…

Lord, continue to pour your love, and sweet spirit in me, to walk in love.  I ask in Jesus name, so I will not get offended, or offend, or lose my blessings.  Keep me grounded, rooted in your love, to always know the difference in Jesus name.  Amen

DAILY REPENTANCE, RELEASING, RENEWAL OF THE MIND, FOR SALVATION~”THE THREE R’S”


Becoming a Christian, is just the beginning, of your walk with Christ.  Many are under the misconception, that if you just say, I accept Jesus Christ, as my Lord, and savior.  That all is well.

And because you are a “Baby Christian” you do not know, that you have to grow, in your Christianity.  Daily. Babies need nourishment.  And when your a baby, you begin drinking milk.  By the word of God, here a little, and there a little.

But the goal, is to grow.  The goal, is to have your milk, from the word, turn into meat of the word, to change.  To be the best you can be as a Christian.  To grow.  Daily.

I believe, that if we had even been given Ephesians 4:23, as a mandate, for us daily…AND BE RENEWED IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND, when we first accepted Christ, I think many of us, would be further along.  I was given, II Timothy 2:15, STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN, THAT NEED NOT BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.  And that brought perspective.  I had won a Bible, when I gave my heart to Christ, on a Bible Vacation school bus, and they wrote that there, when I accepted Christ, in the dedication.  But who knew you had to do it daily?….I am not blaming anyone.  But I do know, now, repentance, releasing, and renewing your mind, should be a priority.

It should be taught.  Thats why I am writing these “Three R’s” to grow daily. Repentance, Releasing, and Renewal.

To think upon these three R’s to change.  To repent, to release, and to renew your mind, from who you were before you were a Christian, to be in a position, to want to change from Gods word, commandments, precepts, and truth.  So the only way to do that, is by Gods word.

And as a Christian, I want you to grow.  Because I have grown.  Becoming a Christian, gives YOU a new responsibility.  You have to want to change.  You  have to want to grow….You can only do that by true repentance, releasing this to God, and renewing your mind by Gods Holy word.

But I must tell you, no one, told me, I had to REPENT, RELEASE, AND RENEW MY MIND DAILY FOR MY SALVATION.  I have had to find it out on my own.  In my own search, in my own walk with God.

And I just pondered, on these words, in just trying to express….this thought.  The Three “R’s”  Because ….What fruit should be evident when you are saved? How do you know, that you know, that you know, you are saved?  Especially, if one has wicked thoughts? Or thoughts, that do not line up with the word of God? Yes food for thought, but WE ALL NEED TO KNOW, WHAT DOES GOD SEE?

Change is required daily a repentance, and releasing, & renewing with Gods word. Brings good fruit.  If you do not see this, you will not truly have a heart conversion.  The precious word, of God, that you received.  To give your heart to Christ….Will just go in one ear, and out the other ear, unless you truly take these steps, to change your life.  To change your heart.  Yes hearing from God, will bring more of an understanding, but you won’t get that, unless you listen to God, by his Holy word.

We all make mistakes, in our walk with Christ.  Believe me, I make them all the time.  But I don’t stop, or give up on God, because I have made mistakes.  Fortunately, by the grace of God, I understand, that I have to repent.  And that is daily.  A lot of people, may not agree with that.  They think once you give your heart its a done deal.  But, the thing is, we have a journey to walk.  The Bible tells us, choose not the wide gate, that is familiar.  Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.  Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  

If you do not know what path, to take by repenting, daily, even for things you do not know, you can be in danger, because you should be releasing yourself, in the renewing of your mind.  Narrow, is the gate we should take.  The old ways….so we can walk with Christ.

Further on in this chapter, Jesus warns us, just because we say “Lord” that does not mean we will be given access to heaven.    Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in heaven.…He goes on to say, that he will tell them depart.  Because he did not know you.  Because you did not know him.

But he adds…Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.  Matthew 8:24 (Read Matthew 7)  We have to grow.  We have to be changed daily.  Repentance, daily, humbleness, in the sight of God, gets us further.  The releasing, with the renewal of our mind with Gods word.

So lets just go through this, in order though, and I want to hammer this, to bring an understanding.  You have your role in your Salvation.  You have to work it out with fear and trembling.  Daily.  Phillipians 2:12-13  Wherefore my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

REPENTANCE – feel or express sincere regret or remorse about one’s wrongdoing or sin :

Daily Repentance keeps you clean daily.  Repentance, in the sight of God, means coming before a Holy God, humble, sad, broken, truly sorry, for the sin, or offense, one has taken in pursuing, this sin. True repentance, is a lesson learned, to know, and see.  You will not do that sin again.  By taking it to the cross.   See, we have to see, and know, God is holy.  And when we sin, on purpose, or just in a moment of weakness, we have to come before him, in godly sorrow.  And say, I am sorry.  And when you say  you are sorry, knowing, that your sins, was taken to the cross, by Jesus Christ.  And when you know that, truly know, and see, how great the sacrifice was, you bring it to the the obedience of Christ.

II Corinthians 10:5-6  Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into capitivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.  And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

When you repent, you have to know what Christ did for you, for true change.  And you have to want to change, repentant, to stay away from sin.   Taking that sin, and laying at the cross, to know God will help you, but you must repent.  Daily repentance, keeps you clean, from day to day.  For who knows what we think or do daily, not even knowing it?  

RELEASING – allow or enable to escape from confinement; set free  

Daily releasing, humbleness, to God, seeking him, will keep you free.  But you have to know, the goal is holiness.  Growth, comes from the word of God.  You must release yourself, to discipline yourself, to obtain, the most from Gods word.  To stay free.  Releasing yourself, to realize, God is trying to teach you something.  Something you may even think you know.  But if you are not obedient to God, in this, it takes longer.  I know.  Pride has to go, and humbleness, and love has to come in.

RENEWAL ~  the replacing or repair of something that is worn out, run-down, or broken :

The thing about daily renewal, is many Christians do not think they are worn out, broken or, run down.  They are content, to just go on about their business, and spiritually, because their mind has not been renewed with the word of God.  They don’t see the problem.  So one has to be aware, that daily renewal, and holiness, comes from seeking God daily.  Moment to moment.  But you cannot obtain that, without the word of God.  It is not possible.  God sees, us where we are, and is able to help us.

But many times, because people do not have problems, financially, say for an example, they don’t search for God.  They just go on through that wide gate.  Here God tells us, you better open your eyes…

Revelation 3:15-19 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:  I would thou were cold or hot.  so then because thou art luke warm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth.  Because thou sayest,  I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and maked.  I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich, and white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thy eyes with eye salve, that tho mayest see.  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten, be zelous therefore and repent.

So, we have to learn discipline, to renew our minds.  That means, you set a priority, for the word of God.  Like food, that has to be eaten.  You are nourished, when you eat.  Eat Gods word, use it, memorize it, claim it, to be renewed daily.  Don’t starve yourself, or you will truly see the fruit of being worn out, run down, and broken.  So replacing your thoughts, with Gods thoughts, will renew your mind.

The goal of this, that I share with you in REPENTANCE, RELEASING, AND RENEWAL OF THE MIND is just to see, you cannot stay where you are as a Christian.  You have to grow, you have to want to grow, you have to see in fear of the Lord, that change has to be evident, by Gods word.  And thats the only place you will find the truth, for your salvation.  Its up to you.

But if you do not try and grow, you will regret it.  Especially when you stand before God.  What would He say to you?  What if you, did not make it to the Kingdom of God, because you just said Lord, but you handicapped yourself?  Because you may not have the guarantee you think you have, if you have not taken Gods word, and used it, for your benefit.

For your salvation.  I believe we are in end times, and the urgency of this is great.  It is time, as a Christian, to pick up the word of God, the sword of truth, and use it.  Discipline yourself.  Be on the right side with God.  Or take the chance of going to hell.  Its not a game.  It is the plan of God.  And He is not mocked.  Your salvation, is your responsbility.  You have to pick it up, and decide.

And if you are deceived, you will regret it.  For eternity.  I tell you this in love….with the thoughts of God, and his word, to inspire you.  Get it right.  We all have to.  I know, I myself, am trying daily.  I do not take my salvation for granted.  The sacrifice was too great, to abuse, or to neglect, or to take for granted, what JESUS CHRIST, did for each one of us.  On that cross.  But hallelujah after the third day, there was life.  He proved it.  Now prove it to him.

By Repentance, Releasing, and Renewal of your mind.  Daily, For your Salvation.  

Just My Thoughts, in Love, Elena Ramirez

Father, thank you Lord, that you are teaching me, to discipline myself, to learn how to submit to you.  To bring even the littlest, sin, which is sin in your eyes, to your throne.  Lord, I don’t want anything to hold me back, from my relationship with you.  Or my blessings, thats why even today, an opportunity came, where I had to repent.  For washing my hubbys watch.  And sure, I could have hid it, but I don’t want to hide things from you, or my loved ones.  I am who I am because of Christ, and he did not hide his love, on the cross.  So I release guilt, condemnation, and bring it all to the obedience of Christ.  By seeking your word, even knowing II Timothy 2:15….to study, myself, and to try to be approved by you, rightly dividing the truth, of you my Lord.  Father, thank you for the word, for your truth, it keeps me in line.  As I daily repent, releasing, myself, and my cares to you, mistakes etc….and renewing my mind by the word of you my Lord.  Thank you Lord, I bring it all to the obedience of Christ, in Jesus name.  Amen….

HOW TO SPEAK TRUTH (JUST MY THOUGHTS AND 7 REASONS OF TRUTH)


BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, MAY GROW UP UNTO HIM IN ALL THINGS, WHICH IS THE HEAD EVEN CHRIST.  EPHESIANS 4:15

I just have to say this, as clearly, and as loudly as I can;

“Jesus Christ, is Lord and Savior.  There is no other name, that can save, like Christ.  He gave his life, so we can be saved, so we can avoid the consequences of hell.  By his stripes we are healed.  His truth, is alive.  He is love.  His blood cleanses, and washes our sins away.  No other religious, figure can do what He can do, and did for us.  He will save you, if you call on his name, and seek him with all your heart, repenting of your sins.  Your name, will be put in the Book of life.  And you will avoid hell.  By seeking him, you will find love, true love.  Peace, and joy, understanding….and forgiveness.  Victory….He will fight your battles.  He will make a way.  Your life, will change, so that you will know He has a plan for you.  But you will have to trust him, and his truth.”

This is truth.

When I do speak truth, I do pray, I can speak truth about who Christ is in my life, the difference He has made, and that I am changed, because of him.  That I know, according to his truth, the word of God, I know, when I die, I will have a place in his Kingdom.

This is truth…  But there are different truths, and different situations, concerning truth.  But not concerning Salvation.  Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6

So, the goal, as I write, is to be truthful in love.  When we speak any truth….

And, gee this one can be tough.  To speak truth, and in love.  I will just say it bluntly, so to speak in my truth.  But,  I do try to be patient, considerate of someone else’s feelings, and compassionate, and yes, I try to speak it in love.  But not my love, the love of my Lord Jesus Christ.  But this does not come naturally.  It does take practice.  Gods love takes practice.

Just because we may accept Christ, does not mean there is immediate transformation.  Yes, we know in the Lord, when we give our hearts to him, immediately our names are written in the Book of Life.  But, we have to renew our minds, our hearts, our spirits, by the word of God, to please him, and by doing so, bringing it to the obedience of Christ.

So, we have to get rid of our “stinking thinking.”  And that applies to speaking truth, and how we speak it, ever mindful of Christ, and his sacrifice.  If you are blunt, as I can be, it can be difficult to speak in love.  So, I know, this does take practice.  I grew up in a home, where words were just spoken, and they flew, here and there, and then one was left to pick up the pieces.  And sometimes, it was hard to go on….But, because Christ has taught us to forgive.  I learned that, so I could be healed.  And hopefully, if I hurt someone, I also ask for forgiveness.

I have had people speak some terrible things to me, and even Christians, who may even speak truth, but are not at all sensitive, as to how it sounds, or what is implied.  And is it really truth?

Look the bottom line, is, if you are going to speak truth, you better make sure it is truth, or you will be just a pawn of the enemy, who is the accuser of the brethren.  And if you do speak it, please do not do it in a way, where you are accusing, even if it is truth.

When I am in a situation, and I have to speak truth, I pray, that I would seek God first.  Taking even if it is just a moment, to say, Lord, help me in this.  Help me to speak truth, but not hurt someone in the process.  Help me, to walk in love, and kindness.  Help me so that my words, are not accusing.  Or rude.  Lord please help me.

There are many times, when we have to speak truth, and for different situations.  But, I would rather speak truth, then ever lie.  For to know truth, and to speak truth, comes from your heart.  When I speak of my relationship with Christ, this is truth.  When I speak about what bothers me, this is truth.  Do I want to ever hit someone on the head with truth, no.  I want to be tactful.

I want love, the love of Christ, to be the main ingredient, in my speaking of truth.  There are times, when confronted, there are opportunities, where you need to speak truth.  And then I do pray for the truth to prevail.  I do pray for the boldness, to speak it, loud and clear.

This is a very profound subject to ponder on, and I could go on and on.  But if anything, that I bring to the forefront, in speaking about truth, I want to emphasize…..  Yes, speak truth in love.  Do so mindful of Christ, but never, ever lie, in your truth.  Lying comes from the devil himself.

And that is just something, we need to be aware of, and very seriously, I tell you, be careful not to pick up, or continue in habits, of lying, or the truth, will never set you free.  I tell you this, in love.

Here are some scriptures, to remind you about truth….

1.  What should we do about truth?

ZECKARIAH 8:16

THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU SHALL DO; SPEAK YE EVERY MAN THE TRUTH TO HIS NEIGHBOR, EXECUTE THE JUDGMENT OF TRUTH AND PEACE IN YOUR GATES.

2.  Who is truth?….

✝ JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE;  NO ONE COMES UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

3.  How can anybody be guided by truth?

HOWBEIT, WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH, FOR HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF, BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK, AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME.  JOHM 16:13

4.  Should someone ignore truth?

NOW I PRAY, TO GOD THAT YOU DO NO EVIL, NOT THAT WE SHOULD APPEAR APPROVED BUT THAT YOU SHOULD DO THAT WHICH IS HONEST THOUGH WE BE AS REPROBATES. FOR WE CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH, BUT FOR THE TRUTH.  II CORINTHIANS 13:8

5.  Why do we speak truth, about Christ?

BRETHREN, IF ANY OF YOU DO ERR FROM THE TRUTH, AND ONE CONVERT HIM;  LET HIM KNOW, THAT WHICH HE CONVERTETH THE SINNER FROM THE ERROR OF HIS WAY SHALL SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH AND SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS.  JAMES 5:19-20

6.  What happens when we know truth?

AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  JOHN 8:32

7.  Truth is my choice, is it yours too?

I HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH;  THY JUDGEMENTS HAVE I LAID BEFORE ME….PSALM 119:30

Just my thoughts,  in Christ’s love,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I pray, your truth will prevail, in my life, in my heart, and in everything I do.  For your glory, for your namesake.  Let love be the guideline, in my truth, that I speak, and live, to be a reflection of you.  In Jesus name.  Amen

PREPARATION….. THEN, SAY A PRAYER…..


Preparation….

Go to your quiet place.  Its in the garden.  The birds are singing.  There is beauty in that sound.  Quietly, you close the door behind you. You want to be with your holy Father.  And you do not want to be interrupted.  No distractions.  But it does not matter, you know he hears you wherever you are.  He is always with you, he will never leave or desert you.  You know this.  You are grateful.   In this moment, you, concentrate on God. All that he has done, his great creation.  Everything, comes to this moment.  Of  just knowing.  He is God.  He is the King of Kings.   With all your heart, you know, for you are a believer in Jesus Christ, as your savior.  Taking this opportunity, by divine appointment to ponder on the goodness of God.  You remind yourself, you will need to know in your heart, all he has done for you, and if needed concentrate on past times, when you felt the presence of God. You remember times, he has protected you.  Spared you.

With all your heart, offer him glory, and praise. Worship him.  For you are in awe, of his majesty.   Seek him, with every ounce of your being.  Nothing else matters, but who he is, and who you are in him.  For you are his child, precious in his sight.  Gifted, and blessed, though you might not even see it, you have potential to do great and wonderful things, so wonderful, that you do not even fathom them.  But God knows.  He is waiting for you.  An overwhelming sense of love, floods your heart. A flood of light overwhelms you.   You hear his voice.  He is calling you to renew your mind.  Search the scriptures.  He will reveal a word for you.  To do things differently, to want to change within yourself, to be in that place of holiness.  Take that word, it is a promise from him, prepare it in your heart, think on it, ponder it, memorize it.  Say it over and over.  Because that is where the true power is.  He honors his own word.  You want to honor him, by speaking his word.  For he is holy, and is calling you to be holy.  In this moment, humble yourself, in the sight of God, for you are in the presence of the almighty King of Kings.

Now is the moment, to repent.  If there is something in your heart, that is weak, or doubts, you will not grow to be the person you need to be.  You need to know there are principles that need to be evident, that show your faith.  You want to please God, so you search your heart.  It may not even be a sin you know of.  But maybe something that did not show faith, or trust in God. Maybe something you said, that was not nice.   Whatever it is, and you do not know, you ask God, to show you your sins, so you can be free.  With your eyes closed, quiet, and alone, with your thoughts, and with the goal of cleansing, see yourself shedding your sins.  Those things, that need changing, and healing, rearranging.  They are falling off, like leaves that are no longer on a tree.  See where the sins were, and look at your skin, it is being regenerated, even as you look.  New life.  Life, is all about you, and on you.  For you are on the vine with Christ, and as a branch, there is new life.  Paradise is in your heart.  Your cup of joy, is being filled.  Peace that surpasses all understanding, is holding you, still keeping you still.

You are in awe that somehow there is a transformation of new life about you.  See yourself again, you are clothed in clothes of righteousness, royal colors, of blue, white, gold, and purple, are wrapped around you, and you have a sense of something different taking place.  Your eyes are filling with tears, and you are very grateful, thankful.  You know that you are his daughter.  Your heritage is royal, because of Christ.  Great favor.  Because the fathers love was so great, for you and all who believe.  You remember what Christ did for you.

Take this moment, as you think of your savior, and his great love, for you, as you ponder on his suffering on the cross.  You see his hands and feet pierced by the nails.  Your sins, are on that cross.  Your heart breaks for you know, your sins were great.  But there they are.  As you see his crown of thorns on his head bleeding.  You see his death on the cross, and sense the stillness of the earth.  See him taken to the tomb, and buried.  The tomb is covered, but you know, in this private moment, he has taken leave from the tomb.  See him going to the gates of hell, and taking your name off the book of death, register at the gates.  Three days later, the son has rose, and he has been resurrected.  You know and feel that life, because he is alive in your heart.  You have a sense of hope, you feel secure.

You know that you know, nothing is impossible with God.  You surrender your feelings, your way, knowing his way, is better.  You want his will to be done in your life.  Because you see with your heart, your spirit.  This is not a matter of being intellectual, but totally spiritual.  You want to bless your Lord Jesus.   Knowing you must give him a signal, of appreciation, perhaps some gift, you reach for your head,  and offer him your crown, that has been placed on your head.  With eyes still closed, lay it there at his feet, kneel at his throne, and do not move.

Say a prayer…….

A Prayer of Hope……

(private today)

I wrote  this, for myself, to sort my feelings out, before I would say a prayer.  To take the necessary steps, I suppose, to get my heart prepared for prayer.  Quieting my spirit.  Getting away from the distractions.  For communicating with God, is a holy matter.  And I want my conscious, and subconscious, to be aware of who God is in his holiness, and what he means to me.  This is my way, I suppose, to get to that place, to gain access to his throne, before prayer, so I can go to my Father who is holy, and I can rest at his feet.  Giving him my crown, but just seeking his presence.  Seeking him, for who he is.  Hoping, that he will take my cares, my needs, and replace it, with his supernatural ability.  For I long to see his power, and goodness working in my life.  For my prayer is for miracles in his name.  So that he would get all glory and praise.  I want to honor God, I want to bless him for as I pray, right, he has blessed me.  It only seems right, to want to bless my God in return.

Prayer, is not a method, but complete communication, between you and God.  Am I saying that, I have to do this all the time?  No, I am not.  What I am saying is that, there are times, when you long for a more deeper sense of prayer, a more spiritual expression, and this is what I do to prepare myself for that.  Writing this, just brought it all to understanding.

May this bless you, but I encourage you, take the moments before you go to him in prayer, to establish who he is to you, and all that he may mean to your life.  The goal in this, is to prepare our hearts in prayer.  It is only my guideline, and it may inspire you, but may God give you your own, vision, to make it personal, between you and him.   I call it:

PREPARATION…. THEN, SAY A PRAYER……
