Prayer for Today

Dear Lord, I need more of You today – less of me and more of You. You are my purpose for Being; You use everything in my life as a believer in You for eventual good; You answer my every prayer and are never far from me. But sometimes in the busyness of life, I feel far from You. Lord, I ask You to draw me near today in an extraordinary Way. How I long to just sit at Your feet all day long today and have You minister to me, love me and teach me, refreshing me for what is to come with all that You are. And yet, today I know I am to serve You by serving others. by Your Spirit, keep me quiet within even while there is busyness all around me. Draw closer to me and hear my worshipping heart. By this worship enable me to spiritually enter the gates of Your Dwelling Place and abide in You even today, even when I am out and about Your business. Help me be quick to listen and slow to speak. By Your power, wherever life takes me, let it be You that others see and may they seek to draw closer to You because of Your work in me. Teach me to go at Your pace and not be concerned about that with which the world is concerned. Because of my love for You and trust in You, let Your peace be upon me and Your joy bubble up through me to touch those around me. If there is any fragrance about me, let it be the fragrance of You! Thank you for being a God who hears my prayers. Thank you for being a God who loves me more than I can ever love you. Thank You for loving me as I am and not expecting perfection from me. Thank you, Jesus for giving up Your life, that I might live forever and have great purpose today. Holy Spirit, thank You for being my Friend, my Guide and my Counselor for as long as the Father ordains for me to serve Him on earth. Thank You for everything. You are my Savior and my Lord. I bow to You and fear You alone.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
