Prayer

Back in 1994 I remember cycling along the Bourne valley in Hampshire, England and stopping for a break in a country churchyard. I climbed up the hill behind the church building to a seat with a commanding view over the church and across the valley and as I sat there this flow of thoughts came, and I wrote them down.

“There is a chain of command – when you pray in the Spirit it is as though memorandums are issued and circulated and courses of action are ordered and embarked upon. Your prayers are heard and answered and decrees are set in motion in the realm of the Spirit that will bring about a response, a concurrence with your requests, for God regards you highly. He takes note of your wishes, your thoughts and assessments and will undertake to meet your needs.

You have a great God whose kingdom is benevolent and whose servants are endowed with great affection and authority, for it is a large kingdom – there is room for so much, and every creative thought and aspiration finds space in which to be expressed and to be creatively used to bring into being an aspect of that kingdom. Your God is great – there is no limitation with Him and his kingdom is everlasting, not limited to time and space but finding eternal expression.

So be enlarged in your thoughts and begin to see and explore your creative significance. Remember it is a kingdom of love and love is unending. There is room for you to be lost in the vastness of the ocean of the creative love of God. How vast is the sphere of your influence because, in the omniscience of God, His Spirit praying through you can change destinies way beyond your sight and knowledge. So be bold as you make your mark in His kingdom.”

Isn’t God’s grace amazing?
