Praying With the Holy Spirit
Our eyes are closed and our thoughts are open and directed toward you O Lord,
Yet we see into worlds unknown by others, and you are there,
Your presence enfolds us to your bosom, and your arms hold us secure,
We are helplessly, transfixed as we realize your very virtue flows through us here!
We sense your gentle touch reaching out - - over the miles and through space and time,
In rapture our prayers flow out through you to those in need and those in pain,
You are there already before our voice did call or mention the need today!
Though darkened vision, their faces are yet before us as we call their name.
If you are there already, why must we agonize these words of request?
Are you asking that two or three are enough to send the enemy on his way?
Do you need someone to “stand in the gap” and stir the healing flow?
Patiently and soberly our petition is brought before you and there we let it lay!
Is it enough to ask once and believe that you have heard?
Should now our prayers be words of thanksgiving and praise?
We know that behind the scenes you are working in their behalf,
Our trust is in you, and all your Word declares and says!
We wait and rise for now, shake and alert us again when need is there,
Your word declares that you alone are God and you know our frame is as dust,
Willing to intercede and be your vessel we lean on you, Use us O God, we are here!
Your hand moves when we ask in faith, and it is in you we place our trust.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.
