This post may seem a little choppy because I just want to state how the Lord’s prayer played out in my prayer time, in terms of other scriptures that flooded my mind as I prayed through it. As this information was pouring into me, it kept flushing garbage out so to speak. Don’t know that I’ve ever experienced it quite like this. I am not attempting to teach or explain anything. Thanks for understanding. I didn’t reference the verses. If you need references, let me know, I will get them for you.
Abba in heaven, hallowed. Set apart. Transcending all created, seen and unseen. All together creation cannot display the fullness of Your beauty, majesty, glory. All we see added together are the mere fringe of You. You stand alone. None like You LORD. Even the very NAME Yod Hey Vov Hey, Yeshua. Name above all names.
Kingdom Come. Open up you heavenly gates, be lifted up everlasting doors. That the King may come in. Gateways within. The ancient path, where the good way is. The perpetual mountains. The spirit gateways, soul gateways, natural gateways. That God, who dwells in the deepest center of the heart would breakthrough the soulish realm where bitter jealousy and selfish ambition brood and percolate. Let the meditation of my heart become pleasing. I welcome healing, deliverance, restoration and reconciliation on the inside. That the natural realm would manifest His presence. Glory in my immediate world. Jerusalem (my innermost world) Judea (my soul) and the uttermost parts (my sphere of influence – the natural world around me…Let the words of my mouth become pleasing) Words lead this ship. Who can tame the tongue?
Your will be done. I surrender unconditionally. In order for the above to happen, I must decrease. Let go. All to Him. Not my will but Yours oh God.
Daily bread. I am the bread, come down from heaven. Moses gave manna but men died. I am bread of life. He who eats the bread I give. He who eats of my flesh and drinks of my blood has eternal life. Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Communion: I have no needs, the LORD is my shepherd. I have everything I need in Him. HE is my daily bread. Sprinkling of the blood on the mercy seat not made with human hands. Take and eat, take and drink. (I took communion at this point.)
Forgive us our debts. Sins. We transgress everyday, in our meditation 1st which then proceeds to bubble out to our mouth. Our words wound. Whoever can tame the tongue becomes a perfect man. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Self centered or God centered is revealed all day long. Break downs in relationship happen based on words rooted in our meditations. Am I present for others? God centered, other centered mindfulness. Preferring one another, TRUELY. Seeing others as more important. Manifesting to others what you would want for yourself. The golden rule. Have this attitude in yourself which was also in Christ. Cover our sins Lord by the blood just taken with communion.
As we forgive. We cover over the failure of others whose sins are exactly the same as ours. He who is without this sin throw the first stone. Look diligently to find you are equally guilty. Might not look the same in your life but the the sin is the same. The grace to forgive is found in our commonality with the transgressor. All sin is COMMON to ALL men. The wicked slave who demanded repayment for much less than he had just been forgiven. 70×7 each day. The forgiveness we receive is the forgiveness we give. Symbiotic relationship.
Lead us not into temptation. The temptation to self centered, self seeking, self serving. What is the source of quarrels among us? This great temptation is directly related to all that has been prayed so far. A continuation of the theme. The greatest commandment – Love God, love others as yourself. Putting self first and loving others as yourself are 100% incompatible. Love yourself IN THEM. Give them what YOU need. All temptation is aimed at breaking down this simple gospel. The great temptation. Lead us not here, dear Lord.
Deliver us from evil. Again this is part of the continuos theme. I will set no worthless thing before me. Bring every thought captive, every vain imagination be torn down. The meditation. A perverse heart will depart from me. I will know no evil. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Cease eating from this tree. Pass through the flaming sword in repentance and partake of the tree of life who is Jesus. A purging and negation of all appetites save for God Himself. Abandoning the self life for the superior pleasure of knowing God. That Christ be formed in me.
As this prayer was taking place in me, the Lord brought up such detail about my sins. I hid nothing. Everything He touched in me yielded unashamed, wholehearted agreement, no excuses. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as washed and clean. Not just me but cleansing generational stuff. It was amazing. Communion in the context of my Daily Bread was astounding.
