What an odd thought, I said to myself. Where did that come from? I know what ‘muse’ means, Lord. What is it You want to converse with me about this evening?
Don’t you know, my child, that I can read your thoughts, was His reply. I can also feel your pain and sadness. Yes, I see what is going on down there on earth with an all-seeing eye. And, yes, it’s very sad and alarming to the masses.
Dear readers, before I begin to write my blog for this week, please allow me to define for you the meaning of the word ‘muse’. The dictionary defines this word as; to turn something over and over in the mind meditatively and often inconclusively. To wonder or marvel over a situation.
For months, now, I have been praying about the devastating wake of Covid-19. And now, because of the unlawful assault on the Capitol Building in the USA seat of government, Washington, DC., I have piled on a new situation of burden bearing in my heart and in my psyche.
As I sat in my office chair, holding my head in my hands, I felt the Holy Spirit’s breath of comfort envelop me. Hold on, He whispered. Communicate with a prayer for understanding, for your musings are resounding loud and clear up here in Glory.
So, after a few seconds I began praying…
|Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for just being You. I praise You for being Omnipotent…all knowing and all caring. I praise You for sending the Holy Spirit to comfort us and to lead us onto the right path. In my search for peace, Lord, in the days ahead, may You allow Your relentless and abundant love to envelope me and lift me out of this deep despair. |
As the coronavirus mutates, and people become more cruel and more careless and more opinionated, may You become just that much more loving and discerning towards your people. Teach me and my fellowman, Oh Lord, to become more dependent on You, and open up our understanding of Your ways, so that our faith may increase as despair creeps in.
Bless me, Lord Jesus, so that my mouth and heart speak with precision; so that I might pray with power and conviction. And above all, to stand with courage and in hope. For I know, now, that my meager life and thoughts do matter to You and that You hear and answer my prayers. I pray this prayer in the precious Name of Jesus…Amen and Amen.
