Prayer “We Fall Lovingly Forwards To You”

Father, Almighty God,

We look to you for all hope and with every part of our hearts.
We submit to your sovereignty and pray that our calling is filled with
the devotion of ones that run to the one that has filled them with blessings
and poured out the Spirit of His own son upon them.

We fall lovingly forward towards you, Lord
with gratitude for all that you have poured out upon us.
Our hearts open like vestibules that are thirsty to drink in your Spirit.
We leave behind anything that would hinder its entry.

Pour, Godly Good so that we can be refreshed by your comfort
and know the sweetness of your love throughout,
Help us each to put all hope in you and in you alone.
Increase our trust in the Eternal
and loosen our grip on the temporal

Father, we are yours, called by you and known by you
Help us, by the power of your Spirit,
to walk boldly forward with courage.
Let us dare to make choices that glorify you and not our own needs;
to live to see your Kingdom reign on earth and not our worldly wants;
to walk in the ways of your righteousness and not our own.

Lord, Almighty,
May we learn to join the chorus of joy that prevails and be witnesses to your Glory.
In Jesus Name,

Amen

“We walk through God’s Door”…a worship poem by LWillows

GodsDoorWillows

Take one thousand years, the ones etched in all hearts
the longest forever’s, the keepsakes, life’s parts.
Then empty the chambers of all that pulls back
what hides and winds secrets of pain and love’s lack.

Lord, these are the hearts that most dearly need you
The broken, the suffering, the lives lived deep through.
My own just as all, pressed with trials darkly set
Taken, lost, shaken from night’s epithet.

Oh Heart, carve a place for forgiveness to dwell.
Let the past fall to Now in His Mercy’s groundswell.
May each come to bare in the innocence of
a sweetness that comforts with Limitless Love.

Thousand years to forever we all join the fore
Emboldened, entrusted to walk through God’s Door.
Bare me, Lord dare me; I would walk, I would do…
All in your namesake, Lord. Lead us to You.
