Teach Me to Pray Thy Kingdom Come Day 4
Meditative (Listening) Prayer
To meditate is simply a matter of slowing down enough to think and let your mind find focus. Listening , adding silence, acknowledges that prayer is a conversation, so we listen to what God has to say in His Word, too. Wait for his guidance to your train of thought.
Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this: When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.
Matthew 18:18 -20 MSG
Envision this - The Holy Trinity and the angels, looking down with baited breath, rooting for us to take authority over that which God gave us: to live and love our own actual lives; to live them to the fullest with boldness and courageousness; to thrive and not just live ordinary lives. I see them on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear us ask with thankfulness our requests, for they know in asking, we are demonstrating our utmost neediness for His Highest.
Finally, humbly acknowledge that you are frail and in desperate need of Our Father’s presence.
Hear His response -
“My will, on earth, is being realized. For I created you to be in deep and constant reliance upon Me, the True Source of life everlasting.”
