It's not emergent or anything else....It's US isn't it??? We want what we want when we want it ALL THE FLIPPIN TIME!! Sometimes we just hide it better than others???
"Lord, indeed invade and conquer my heart today. Bring me to my knees in complete surrender; break me; shatter my strength and wipe out my resistance. Invade my nature today and conquer me for Your glory. Amen."
Father, I know Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to live in me when I became a Christian. I ask that my stubborn will and that my sinful desires can be overcome with the Spirit's power, and that my life will display the joy and confidence that your refreshing presence brings. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Scary prayers BOTH of them and yet I cannot help but pray them...they both came in my email this very morning...attached to devotionals that speak deeply into my heart, my journey...I want to say ENOUGH!!! but I know it's only begun and there is so much of ME to be broken. I truly believe the fragrance of Christ does not waft off of us....off of me.... until we/I are broken vessels and THAT..... I am fighting and will continue to fight so I need to PRAY and in praying scary prayers like this...see....and hear...."Do not be afraid for I am with you." .......
