Just Pray


I got the phone call

asking for prayer

and I didn't know what to say.

My heart was breaking for my friend,

as I felt so helpless because I couldn't

take away

~her pain

~her anxiety

~her grief.:

but she wasn't asking me to.

She asked me to

PRAY.

How can my words be enough?

Could GOD really overcome her with HIMSELF?

Doubt immediately took over,

as I was trusting in me and not to the

One whom we

PRAY.

It was a surreal moment,

as I know the truth ,

yet in that one moment

I became paralyzed.

A Blind Faith Moment~

Trusting GOD with the impossible (Hebrews 11:6)

PRAYER~

Confidence in HIM and not in me (Hebrews 4:16)

PRAYER~

Not my will but HIS be done (Luke 22:42)

PRAYER~

Total Surrender (I Peter 5:6)

PRAYER~

Leaning not on my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5)

So what was I waiting for?

It was time for me to get out of the way~

"HE must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less" (John 3:30)

And that I did~

I PRAYED~

The unscripted words flowed from my heart~

as I had no clue what I said.

Peace overcame me

&

Peace filled her heart as I heard it in her words.

PRAYER~

Just Ask HIM~

"...present your requests to GOD. And the peace of GOD, which transcends all understanding,

will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS (Philippians 4:7)
