Prayer: Remembering Who You Are & Why I Need You

Majesty, You are beyond what we can know and yet You seek relationship with us. We look to You. You are what we seek and we know You will be found. You are our delight and our entire reason for being now through eternity. You amaze us and we are grateful! In Jesus' name amen

Lord, You have opened the eyes of my heart that I might begin to see You. Awestruck by the Wonder that You are and reveling in Your majesty, You are and there is no One greater than You. You are and there is nothing and no one more powerful. You created all things. In You all of creation lives, moves and has its being and at the point You ordain it or allow it, we find ourselves at our end and nothing can stop that end from coming.

Through Jesus, You conquered death, nullifying its seeming power to steal everything away and You give us a hope and a future which death cannot steal from us when we choose to be part of Your everlasting kingdom. We understand this is Your gift to us, provided by You through Christ Jesus. MESSIAH, You quite literally save us from death.

Messiah, therefore You reign over every other so called leader and king because no earthly leader created all, setting even the sun, moon and stars in their places and ordering the seasons. Only You hold all things in Your hands and have dominion over all. In addition, clearly no earthly leader can leap beyond physical death, stop death’s coming or provide a way through it but You. Death is the destiny we thought was ours, yet through Jesus this has changed. We can look beyond it and see You are our destiny.

Holy One, perfect and good in every way and all love, we do not deserve to be near You. We will never be pure enough. You actually made us this way, so that in knowing it, we would begin to understand the difference between You and us, gain ever brighter glimmers of who You are and Your sovereignty, and realize there is no way beyond death but with You. You established that our salvation through death is through recognizing our need for You and You have provided us with the ability to individually choose to make a decision for Your Way or not.

Majesty You are! Your ways do often do not make sense to us. This is because You are God and Lord and we are not. Your ways are higher and better and eternal in their effect. Your ways are perfect because You are perfect.

Magnificent, awesome One, we are safe in You—protected, with our eternal destiny assured, so long as in our weakness we choose to try to follow You as Master and Guide. Wonderful One that You are, even when we begin to stray Your love is so great that You pursue us as our Good Shepherd without ceasing, for You love each one of us infinitely and desire for every one of us to be together with You forever.

Awestruck humbled, grateful I seek to draw nearer again to thank You, to delight in You and once again take up my moment-by-moment rest in You—for Your glory. 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
