May 11 Prayer
A story of faith. (Acts 16:23-31)
Freedom is Believing,
it takes risk
to go through the open doors of our prisons.
To see the wrongs in our hearts and to make them right.
To wash the wounds of another and receive forgiveness.
To praise and pray when persecuted, lied about and abandoned.
All the stories we tell ourselves that keep us imprisoned,
let them come to light now.
Let’s pause and let the Holy Spirit bring his gentle shaking
before a great shaking of the ground we are standing on.
Let us believe in the Eternal,
Who is our king, surging with strength.
He knows what he is doing and he has planted
the seed of eternity in you.
The smallest seed is about to become enlarged within
for eternity is your home.
The prison doors of your heart have opened for you to enter in...
‘Lord, we enter into the blessed eternal kingdom you have planted in our hearts.
We receive all the love you have to give us so we are no longer listening to false narratives of our lives.
Oh Dear Lord, make your home in us so we may be at home with you and your love.
May we see the world as a firm, immovable place where you rule and reign and love justice.
Let it start within our own hearts so we may transmit your kingdom reign where we stand.
May we believe and take risks to wash the wounds of another.
“Oh God, make my soul your heaven.” ~Elizabeth of the Trinity
