April 29 Prayer
‘Thank you Father,Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the ones who think they are wise and clever and have revealed them to children.’ Matt.11:25
Jesus continues to tell us that this pleases the Father to reveal the Son and that know one knows him like his father and no one knows the father as the son.
We as parents know our children like none other for we are a part of them and they are a part of us.
We see ourselves in them and they reflect back to us ourselves.
There is an intimacy, an understanding that goes deeper than words.
God the Father, God the Son,
intimately known by each other,
revealed to us through Jesus.
Gentle and humble in heart.
A child is open,honest, receptive,
eager to please and trusting.
Jesus shows us the way to be a child.
To share in the secrets of the kingdom.
‘Give your life for another,
Trust each other,
‘Serve one another as I have served you.’
That’s a tall order to fill but,
If we return to becoming childlike in our faith
then perhaps we will see
this glorious inheritance
that we as his holy children have become.
All it takes is to be like a child again.
in wonder, in trust,
arms lifted high,
eager to be picked up.
By a loving Father,
when we consent to love.
Feel once again that chillIke joy
of being held in a Loving embrace.
‘Sweet Jesus, we await your love embrace
to pick us up and hold us tight to your chest.
We rest in the intimacy of a child to a parent.
Lift us higher into your heavenly realm so we may live
with humble hearts, open and receptive.
When we look at another, may we see them
as your sweet children eager for love
and wanting acceptance into your family.
‘We love because you first loved us.’
