A Word of Prayer

Father, 
As I set forth on this journey as both a speaker and a writer, professions entirely dependent on the use of words, I am reminded of the impact words can have... more importantly, the power of Your Word...


You formed the entire universe as Your thoughts and plans came to be formed on Your lips...


Your Word came to this earth in a living body, with flesh and bone... alive and active...


Your Word came to penetrate our thoughts and attitudes... to divide soul from spirit...


Your Word came as flesh to be a lamp for our feet, a light for our path, revealing to us the way to live life, and life more abundantly...


Your Word came to move mountains and speak things into existence which were not yet in existence...


Your Word came to prove its power to heal the sick, bind up the brokenhearted, give sight to the blind, and open the ears of the deaf...


Your Word came to proclaim good news, to announce freedom to all captives, and to pardon all prisoners...


Your Word came to turn the tables of the self-righteous, wreak havoc on hypocrisy, and paint the ultimate picture of love...


Your Word came out of love for all of humanity... it was put to death by all of humanity, who did not understand it... yet, it conquered sin, death, and hell so that all of humanity might have the opportunity to abide in You on this earth and for all eternity!


Your Word came... a fulfillment of a promise... exhibiting the fullness of grace and truth... to write itself on human hearts... to change the world forever.




Your words are everything, Jesus.
My words are nothing, if they are not filled with Your Spirit.


Let this be a place where You speak, where Your words are heard...
loud and clear...  


words that will change hearts and lives...  
words that will change families and communities...
words that will rock this world and forever change the generations to come...


For NOTHING is impossible with Your Word... and "blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"

...Amen!
