IMG_8580 2It’s here, isn’t it, Father, where you want to come in.

Yes, come.

Yes, come in.

It’s the word in we want.

Father, come in.

Holy Spirit, come in.

Grab hold of this heart that is weary.

And grab hold of this heart that is drowning.

And grab hold of this heart that is hopeless.

And grab hold of this heart that is skeptical.

Rescue, Father.

Come in.

Rescue this heart that is aching.

And rescue this heart that is searching.

And rescue this heart that is grieving.

And rescue this heart that is jaded.

Come in.

Holy Spirit, we pray, come in.

There is more for her, your daughter, the one who bends low, and the one who keeps going, and the one who has given up, and the one who has lost her bearings and doesn’t know which way to turn.

There is more for her, your daughter, the one feels tossed about at sea, and the one who doubts her self-worth, and the one who has been hurt, and the one who feels it is too late, and the one who is tired of trying anymore.

Supply her with more, Father. Pour out the heavens upon her. Holy Spirit, equip her.

Come in.

Father, come in.

We stand, together, hands to heaven, hearts open-wide.

Father, come in.

We trust you. We need you. We will take one step, and then another, seeking your face upon us, choosing to believe we are not alone and we are beloved and we are daughters who are chosen and this day is no ordinary day.

Today is the day we are seen. Today is the day we follow. And claim courage. And practice faith.  And endeavor perseverance. Because we say yes to rescue. We say yes to surrender. We say yes to you.

Holy Spirit.

Come.

In.

Want to sit down, close your eyes, and pray this with me, this day? (Subscribers, click here, to come on over and listen to this song.)
