Earlier this week, I could feel something coming. I remembered one of my Titus 2 friends sweetly prayed for You to reveal it God. So, I whispered that heavy prayer knowing what it would bring. I knew You would show Your power. I knew You would reveal the sin and the problem. But my God, thank You that Your power doesn’t end there.
Father, You revealed the sin. You revealed the truth. You revealed the pain. You revealed the hurt. You revealed the root of the issue. You revealed the place that needed healing. You revealed the ways to help. You revealed that You are always in control. You revealed hope. You calmed the storm. You told Jonah to quit running.
I knew, You would reveal the sin. Now, I know how much more You reveal after that. Because it was never just about the sin, it was always about the person You love. It was always about the heart. It was always about the cross. It was always about the gospel.
So, here is my prayer. Father, thank you for your spirit. Thank you for listening to whispered prayers. Thank you for showing your love this week. Thank you for showing me how I can help. Thank you for friends that share their wisdom and point me to you. Abba, I pray this song over my life. I pray this is my worship. I pray this is my offering. In every moment, I withhold nothing. Father, I’m learning to trust You. Even when I can’t see it. And even in suffering. I have to believe it. If You say “it’s wrong”, then I’ll say “no.” If You say “release”, I’m letting go. If You’re in it with me, I’ll begin. And when You say to jump, I’m diving in. If You say “be still”, then I will wait. If You say to trust, I will obey. I don’t wanna follow my own ways. I’m done chasing feelings. Spirit lead me. I don’t trust my ways. I’m trading in my thoughts. I lay down everything. ‘Cause You’re all that I want. I’ve landed on my knees. This is the cup You have for me. Father, I pray these are not just empty words. I don’t want to put on a show or give lip service. I don’t want to play a part. I pray that I live my life this way. I pray that I follow your every command, your every word, your every whisper. Father, reveal the path and I will follow. And as always I pray for my family and sorority sisters. I pray for my university. I pray for guidance for our government, church, and school leaders. I pray for protection for our troops. I pray for all of those that need you now and for those that haven’t met you yet. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
