I wrote a prayer after my youngest (18 years old) rejoiced when he saw me. He said, “You're alive! It must be a great feeling!” (I had been very sick with a terrible migraine.) I asked him if I should break out into a Mr. Rogers' song. (haha!) Anyway...here is a prayer! “Father God, it IS a GREAT feeling to be alive! It is only in YOU that we live and move and have our being! THANK YOU, Abba Dad, for LIFE through Your Son! Jesus, we love and worship You, and we thank You for giving us Your life so we can live! Praise You! Abba Dad, breathe Your intimate life upon each one of us today. I pray that Your very life would pulsate throughout our being! I pray that life – Your abundant life – would pulsate through our veins and Your very heartbeat would cause our hearts to beat passionately for You and for others. Oh, Abba Dad, I pray that Your very heartbeat and Your very breath would breathe life into the dry bones of our lives. Wherever we have dry bones in our lives I pray for those dry bones to come alive. Oh, Lord, THANK YOU! Thank You for Your life! Thank You for Your heartbeat that pulsates true life through us! Thank You for the deep, deep intimacy that You provide through Your life! You are SO WORTHY of our praise and we give it to You without reservation! We love You, Lord! In Jesus' name. Amen!
