Song of Praise

8/18/2000

 

Praise You, God, You are so great.

Praise You, God, my sin You take.

Praise You God, You’ve given me

Your Holy spirit so full and free.

 

I ask You, God, keep drawing me

Closer, God, on bended knee.

Teach me how to set You free

To have Your way inside of me.

 

My precious one, I hear your prayer.

I know how much you strive and care.

Be patient, dear, it’s Me, you see

Who works in you My love to see.

 

John 17:11

And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we [are].

 

Wow.  That’s exciting.  Jesus prayed of me.  Not only did He pray for me but he prayed that I would be one with God even as He is one with God.  That really blows my mind.  Jesus said He only prays the will of the Father.  Therefore, it must be God’s will for me to be one in Him.  All I need to do is furnish the desire and be available for God to work His will in and through me.  He is the maker.  He is the one who will make me one.  When life gets hard and things don’t seem to go my way, I can praise God for allowing me into His firery furnace to burn away the chaff that separates us.  I need not strive but need to make myself willing and available.

 

Prayer

 

Thank You, Jesus, for praying for me.  Thank You that You desire for us to be one.  Thank You that all I must do is be pliable and let You work Your way within me.  Help me be ever ready to respond to Your creative ways.
