Worshipful Prayer of Thanksgiving for Who God is and His Gifts to Us

Lord, You are our all in all and everything. In You we have life. You give us all we need, then use us as Your visible fruit to others--by the power of the Holy Spirit, not our own. We revel in Your love and way.
Lord, You are our all in all and everything. In You we have life. You give us all we need, then use us as Your visible fruit to others–by the power of the Holy Spirit, not our own. We revel in Your love and way.

Beautiful Savior with eyes so full of unfathomable love for us, give us eyes for You alone. Only by the power and grace of Your ever-present Holy Spirit can our chins be lifted up to gaze steadily and constantly upon You.  You are Truth.  You are Life.  You are Love manifesting in and through mercy unending.  You forgive the offender and comfort the offended, offering supernatural balm of healing especially when life makes no sense.  Then You weave both into the tapestry of Your Body through whom You spread the fragrance of Your Love and witness of Your Truth to a hungry world destined to die without You.

Magnificent Savior, You give all to eat of Your satiating Bread of Life who will turn to You and seek it.  You take us, who are orphans without You, grappling for peace and purpose, adopt us as Your eternal children and set us next to You in the everlasting heavenlies where You reign and nothing, nothing, nothing can stop Your good purposes–where You already are and have always been and will always be Victor.

You pour out on us eternal goodness which we could never deserve, rescuing us from this hideous exile into which we were born where we encounter hate, anger, jealousy, selfishness, illness, death, sadness, horrendous injustices and more. Yet even while we are still in this place, by Your grace You give us purpose as Your ambassadors to shine Your Light every day by Your Spirit in both hard and easy places until You call us home to be with You in eternal goodness and Light, before You always, and united with those who have gone faithfully before.

All You ask of us are seeking hearts–hearts which first seek You, yearning to find You, yearning to know You–and then bowing to You in allegiance, comprehending Your innate superiority, seeking to discern Your will and to do it by the power of Your Holy Spirit.

You fulfill Your promises.  You are ever-faithful.  Your Spirit–sent at Your request of the Father, Jesus, following Your death and resurrection–comes to every heart who seeks and waits for Him and never leaves us or forsakes us, walking with us as we carry the mortal crosses which are part of living under the dominion of the prince of the air who is more powerful than we are, but nothing compared to You.

Holy Spirit, You walk with us just as You walked with Jesus!  Oh, Father, thank You for Your creation (including us), Wisdom and Way.  Oh, Jesus, thank You for Your birth, life, death, resurrection and ongoing intercession which have reunited us with our Father and gives us hope for the future.  Our true inheritance awaits, to which we  could not restore ourselves.  Thank You, Spirit for coming and being our Comforter, Friend, Helper and Guide as we learn to listen for Your will and You empower us to complete it in a way You, God, are made known and glorified so that Your Kingdom is grown and Your purpose to restore humanity to Yourself is accomplished.  In Jesus’ name, Amen

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
