October 3 Prayer
“Here is the slumbering Christ, stirring to be awakened, to become the soul we clothe in earthly form and action.
A holy sanctuary of adoration where our minds are stayed on God and kept in perfect peace...
Where the secret places of the heart cease to be a noisy workshop.” —Thomas Kelly
Near the end of Job’s questioning and wrestling with God he realizes everything he had heard and thought about God was not really who He was. Until his eyes were opened and he saw who He really Is.
“I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said about you and repent.” Job 42:5-6
The heart is the place where we will wrestle with God, where our noisy workshop can crowd out any true revelation. Until we can stop, and look inside and hold those unanswered questions, and surrender them to an unknown God.
Take a breath and hold your questions out to God as we pray;
Jesus, you know the Father and desire to reveal Him to those who are yours.
We come to you and ask for your revelation of the Father to be given to us. Lk.10:22
Everything we think we know about you we lay down at the foot of the cross.
We make space in our souls for you to awaken in us a new God awareness unlike what we have known before.
May we be your holy sanctuary as we keep our minds on you through your Holy Spirit.
Show us how to see and how to clothe your vision and purpose within us into action.
We confess we do not have the answers for all of our questions but trust that you will reveal the way before us.
Awaken us in your perfect peace this day and fill us with adoration.
