A Refuge..........a quiet place I sometimes go before dawn to sit in silence with the King. Prayer it is the key to unlocking mysteries.
Through prayer God will:
- reveal himself to you (Ex. 33:13)
- sustains through difficulties (Ps. 55:22)
- Strengthens in weariness (Isa. 40:28-31)
- gives understanding (Jer. 33:3)
- fills with courage (Ps. 138:2-3)
- builds faith (Jude 1:20)
- satisfies with joy (Ps. 63:1-8)

O Word made flesh, speak through us:  words that bring new life.

     "Prayer is the light of the spirit, and the spirit, raised up to heaven by prayer, clings to God with the utmost tenderness. Like a child crying tearfully for its mother, it craves the milk that God provides. Prayer also stands before God as an honored ambassador. It gives joy to the spirit, peace to the heart. I speak of prayer, not words. It is the longing for God, love too deep for words, a gift not given by humans, but by God's grace."

John Chrysostom (c. 347-407)

Prayer brings forth Faith.
Faith pleases God.
Faith stirred by grace does the deed.
Faith will bring you closer to the King.

Seek and ye shall find.
Knock and the door will be opened.

Try something new this with him before the dawn breaks.
Tell him of your bruises from life........tell him your hearts desires. Sit a spell in silence.......letting the clutter of this world leave you. Pour more of yourself out so He can fill you.

Seek Him= It will connect your prayer life with responsible action in pursuing the will of God. (ESV- Matthew 7:7)

His grace is at the heart of our faith............whispering more..........more of your grace please.
Pursue Him you want be disappointed.....Prayer does change things.

all is grace,
