FROM HEART TO HEART:
A PRAYER OF GOD'S SERVANT
~ Given to Max Solbrekken by the Holy Spirit, June 9, 2014 ~
Dear Lord Jesus Christ:
In Your precious Name I extol the God and Father of all life, the Giver of peace and the Destroyer of sin, sickness and death, and exult in His goodness, grace, mercy, peace and joy!
To Him be glory, honour, praise and exaltation for He is Good, Gracious, Honourable, Merciful, Kind, Just, Compassionate and Long Suffering!
Awesome, Wonderful, Blessed and Glorious are His thoughts and actions toward us and His ways past finding out. Our minds are too miniscule to assimilate just a fraction of His Attributes, Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom!
I marvel at His Grace toward me and my fellowman. In all humility, I must ask: "Why should He love us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to be the propitiation - covering and satisfaction - for our grievous sins and that of the entire human race?"
That in itself is radical, mind boggling and extraordinaire! What did He see in a world of sinning, manipulative, greedy, proud, destructive and dishonourable human beings, that caused His great heart to do the unimaginable, unthinkable and incomprehensible to save us, by Himself becoming the Sacrifice for our lost, doomed and damned souls?
Only through the Bible - Your Holy Word - are we able to make sense of it all. Our minds are too limited, too restricted, too narrow and too cluttered with many mundane thoughts and things, to be able to comprehend Thee, my precious Saviour. Your total Greatness, absolute Goodness and never failing Mercy helps me to understand, in part, the answer to these important queries!
Only by Thy Blessed Holy Spirit are we able to piece together the Amazing and Wonderful Plan and Purpose of Thy Incarnation, Ministry, Death, Resurrection and Heavenly Kingdom, and Thy prayer, "Thy Will be done in earth as it is in Heaven."
Blessed Lord Jesus Christ, my hope is in You, my trust is in You, my peace is in You, my healing and health is in You, my provision is in You, my Future for time and eternity is in You!
Thank You for listening to me and for putting into my heart and mind these profound thoughts - which I would have been unable to generate apart from Your inspiration - because without You, O' Lord, there would be no reason for this Prayer!
In You, I am guarded from Evil, protected from the Enemy, furnished with Truth and equipped with supernatural Power to preach the Gospel, cast out demons, heal the sick, liberate the lost and bring peace to the fallen sons and daughters of Adam and Eve!
Only in Your name Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, upon the authority of Your Holy Word and through Your precious and pure BLOOD shed for me, do I have the right to be called a child of God, Your servant and an ambassador of Your Kingdom!
Unto Thee O' Lord do I subscribe all the honour, praise and glory both now and forevermore! Amen.
Thy insignificant and grateful servant,
Max Solbrekken, Heb. 13:5; 2 Cor. 4:5
