listening prayer

weeping and fighting. weeping and fighting.

Listening prayer. I sit humbly on the floor before my Lord. Before my God…my Awesome God. Quiet yourself. In the dimly lit room, quiet songs ring out in the presence of the Lord. A room full of people, but it is just me and Jesus. I praise Him for who He is. For who He is, is all I need. We pray for many, we pray for much. We are called to pray for our campus. My flesh says the Lord is telling me revival but yes that is what Jesus wants, but not what he wanted to speak to me in that moment. In the moment as I move from kneeling on the dark carpet to laying out my body, laying out my thoughts for Jesus.

I see the Lord. I see Him weeping. I see Him on His throne longing. Longing for the lost, He weeps for the ones seeking. He weeps for those left, for those on the steps of the kingdom not knowing they can walk in. I see the Lord. I see Him fighting. I see His word being spoken, for His word is a double edged sword.

Matthew 8:10-13 “When Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who followed Him, ‘Truly I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you many will come from east and west and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of Heaven. While the sons of the Kingdom will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go let it be done for you as you have believed.’ And he servant was healed at that very moment.”

prayer and faith. intercessory prayer. prayer and faith.

I hear these words, but I see His people. I see His people weeping. I see His people fighting.

Isaiah 8:9 “Be broken, you peoples, and be shattered; give ear all you far countries; strap on your armor and be shattered; strap on your armor and be shattered.

strap on your armor and be shattered. weep but fight. be broken but stay strong.

weeping and fighting. weeping and fighting.

I lay. I quiet. I listen. I feel Him. I hear Him.

Weeping and Fighting. Weeping and Fighting.
