I’ve read a few in my 9 months of blogging. I’m sure you have, too. Some have stuck with me and I’ve prayed them more than once. Duane’s prayer resonated deep. I’ve prayed it countless times as it has been my heart’s cry lately.
When I brought the idea to the Mastermind behind this space, He told me to slow down. And began to show me where I need to begin.
Friends, I need to find my own voice. My own heart’s cry to Him. I need my prayer to be more personal.
So, this is where I’m at right now. When I sit down at the keys, and seek His face, these are the words on my lips. And I wanted to share them with you. Let it be so.
Will you pray with/for me?
Father, thank You for meeting me in this space.
For letting me linger long in Your embrace.
Thank You for giving me words to shed here.
For using this outlet to draw me closer to You.
Jehovah, You astound me. Let it always be so.
You have given me the gift of writing.
And although I’ve fought it, I now humbly accept it.
Thank You, Yahweh, for allowing me to worship You this way.
And here, I give it back to You.
For Your glory. Let it be so.
So with trembling fingers I press publish,
Offering my heart to others in hopes they see You.
Although I know the words written are for You and me,
I pray You can use them for more.
Not for me, but for You. Let it stay so.
May my words speak Your name. Not mine.
May my writing be so that the author is forgotten,
But what is remembered is You.
Your glory. Your grace. Your love. Your works.
For it’s all about You. Let it remain so.
I am but a vessel.
Nothing more than a piece of clay.
Nothing less than a masterpiece.
Only You know the plan for my life. Let that be enough.
And when people stop by, may they see who made me.
May Your style resonate so that my face is forgotten.
For all they see is You.
I cannot think of a greater legacy
Than that which leaves Your fingerprints
On everything I’ve left behind.
Holy Spirit, let it be so.
Lord, make me unknown.
Known only to You.
And while You’re at it,
Can You make me okay with that, too?
To You, Abba, be all glory and honor forever. Jesus, let it be so.
I’m certain this prayer will evolve as I continue to draw nearer to Him. So I’ve decided, like Duane, to add this prayer to the tab headers on my blog for easy access. My plan is to update it when necessary. I would be honored if you would stop by from time to time and pray alongside me. For His glory.
How about you, friend? What have you been praying lately? What is your heart’s cry? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
