Sometimes it takes awhile to become still. Our senses are bombarded all the time in this people busy, techy world, especially if you live in a metropolis or the surrounding areas.
Me, the inner man, is sensing a tug in my heart to quiet down … my Good Shepherd nudging me to step aside into a gentle grassy place to rest, to get still … and to pray. I have tremendous desire just to pray in tongues … pray and commune in the Spirit, in tongues.
It’s like there are things He’d just like me to pray out … and it’s like it’s a whole lot way out beyond my understanding; like there are some things in my future, or someone’s future that He wants to pray out, over, through … whatever. It’s hard to put these things in words, but even as I write, it’s getting stronger and stronger. It may mean prayer for me, others, prayer for nations, prayer for protection, deliverance; it may be to change the course of events set up before me or someone else.
I’m saying, “I’m presenting myself to You. One step at a time, You’ll show me what to do. You have a plan and You have a purpose so I’m gonna hang with You. I’m ready to walk it out. But, I’m strongly sensing to get quiet; to do the things I know to do quiet my mind down; to still the busy thoughts. I’m coming boldly to the Throne of Grace to receive Mercy and Grace to help me do this … to get quiet, to be still and pray out, say out, sing out, do whatever needs to be done. Thank You. I believe I recieve this. I take it. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive even as You’ve so Mercifully forgiven me. All in Jesus name.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God, for no one understands or catches his meaning, because in the [Holy] Spirit he utters secret truths and hidden things [not obvious to the understanding]. AMP
