After watching the videos and listening to the prayer -- these are our thoughts...
AWESOME!!! PRAISE THE LORD for someone who has the courage and the boldness to have PASSION in prayer!!!
Rick and I were talking about this today ... and the question is --
"What if we prayed all our prayers with such passion?"
God owes us nothing. We deserve no good thing from God.
HOWEVER, God desires to spend time with us, to bless us, to pour out His blessings and good things on us.
Being a parent I think about what if my kids loved me and even worshipped me - but had the image of me being so holy that I was untouchable, unreachable? How would I feel?
It would break my heart! (I am not saying that I am holy or one to be worshipped.)
And if I being evil can feel this heartbreak at the thought of this - how much does God feel heartbroken when we love Him and worship Him from afar?
Yes, God is holy. Holy, holy, holy - Lord God Almighty! Who was, who is, and who is to come. The Ancient of Days. The Holy One of Israel.
But, He is also our Abba Father.
Abba meaning "daddy".
When was the last time you talked to Him as to someone really real? As to your earthly daddy or momma? As to a best friend?
We need to always remember that we do not deserve such a relationship with God, but HE desires it!
To honor Him - enjoy the Father-child relationship!
Worship Him yes, but also remember that He is Daddy!!!
Talk to Him about anything and everything!
He is listening and He cares.
