Talk to me my Lord. Counsel and guide me in the way that I should go. I seem to have gotten off track. Take me back to the place that will continue to unveil my destiny according to your will.
Hold me my Lord in your loving embrace while I drink deeply from the fountain of life. Only You, the joy of my salvation, can quench this thirst for revival, refreshing, renewal, resurrection and restoration.
Oh Mighty Father who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His children -- Bathe and anoint me in the oil of joy and gladness. Quicken me with beauty for ashes.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
For with Thee is the fountain of life: In Thy light shall we see light.
What and if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before. It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profited nothing. These words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.
As I read this, it fast became a prayer for myself as I acknowledged each sentence, statement and request. You reveal your state of heart and an inner longing that we can all share at times. I particularly liked the phrases in your last two lines,,, "the oil of joy and gladness" and "beauty for ashes." This prayer moved me and gave me a sense of hope, and peace. Thank you for sharing... blessings... Yvonne
