I won’t be long today at all. Promise. I just wanted to share a quick prayer with you that I recently read while going through one of Priscilla’s Bible studies. If you’ve done the Discerning the Voice of God Bible study, you’ll be nodding your head in a minute. I’ve recently posted it on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages, too, so many of you will recognize it!
Lord, heighten my spiritual senses
to see that which is not visible,
hear that which is not audible,
sense that which is not tangible,
believe that which is unbelievable.
Teach me to sort through
the noises of this world,
to hear and discern Your powerful,
wonderful, pure, precious voice.
Oh man, I love that. “…Your powerful, wonderful, pure, precious voice.”
That has been my prayer these past few days. I break my own heart just thinking that I have gone through many, many days unaware of God’s handy-work (the fine details, pristine craftsmanship) or that I can become so busy that I unintentionally block out His voice as He pursues me daily.
Before you go about your busy day today, whisper this prayer a few times. If I’ve caught you in the middle of your day, give yourself permission to stop what you’re doing and pray this prayer out loud. Close your eyes and just take it all in for a minute before you continue with your day.
He hears you and will answer you. He will speak to you. If you’ve already seen Him at work, if He’s answered your prayer, if your spiritual senses have been heightened, will you share it with us? Your words will definitely encourage another!
Hey, see? I told you I wasn’t going to be long. 🙂
