* The following is a prayer written by Ted Loder. *

Praise be to You, Gracious God, for this day, this earth, this life, for the Weave of Miracles blessing us and for Your quiet power sustaining us.

We praise You for times of laughter and tears, risk and reconciliation, reflection and healing, and for the consistent presence of Your Spirit making all things sacred.

Praise to You, awesome God, for the Holy mysteries of our struggling and wondering, for our trials and triumphs, and all that moves us to awe, to love, to pray, to serve, since it is Your Spirit that moves us so and is creating us still; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

An Oath of Fealty to The King

November 6, 2014 at 11:33 am (Prayers) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

I will be a loyal traitor
To all that harkens from evil quarters
All things that turn even ever so slightly from Your Face
Apathy, inconsistency, double-sided degree
Untruthfulness, in any degree of less or more
A solid lie to me
Impurity of myself or any other
My face shall turn away
Degradation of original beauty flung far into the sea

I will be a loyal traitor
To all forms of self assurance
Pride, ambition, possession, importance
These will have my undying fight
Surrendered to You Jesus,
You have turned them into Your might
Self-protection, self-esteem, selfish motives, selfish provision, self-centered thoughts, self-obsessed involvement
Enemies for eternity to me
I thrust my hand upon Your own and anchor this self to Your throne

I will remain a loyal traitor
To ruin and rot of souls
That applaud and cheer of revenge
Of any form, as insult to Your Authority
Any degree of lack of mercy
Any disguise of blame
No exceptions, there is no such thing You can not forgive through me
I will actively reflect Your forgiveness
Absolute cleanness
Feet washed
Robes thrown over rebellious shoulders
Rings given to those who have squandered their inheritance
Feast thrown for the one returning
Simply returning
I will scorn the shame of unrighteousness
I will hold out these hands to the undeserving
I will reflect what You have done for me
By Your grace alone
So say I.

I will be a loyal traitor
To all that binds and traps and corrals
Any in fear instead of love
I will betray this natural flesh
At every turn as You give me eyes to see
I will not give in to empty threats
When You have so promised that I am free

I will slap away gossip and slander
As if they were the deadliest of diseases
I will not join in with any fun made of weakness in a brother or sister in sin
I will evict the garish brutality of man from my thoughts and emotions inside
They will be Your captives forever to slay
So long as You are alive!

I will be a loyal traitor
To the natural flow having been trained in sin
With training my feet to run swift
To You for every reaction and action
My tongue will seek Your Words
My mouth will remain shut until You’ve given them
And submit when You still it
My hands will look for Your movement and quickly join in
My eyes will “listen” and my ears will “see”
Only that which You have given to me
I will rely and have undaunted hope in the Salvation You provide
I will not relent until I see You face to face

I will be a loyal servant
Of Your Kingdom, Your Work, Your Ways
And keep my whole heart, whole mind, whole spirit trained in Your instruction
As You have made them whole and complete
Only Your glory will I seek
So say I

Falling to my knees I lay out
These vows and so swear my fealty to You
Jehovah, Adonai, God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, El’ Elyon, Elohim, First and Last, Son of David, El Shaddai, Shepherd, Teacher, Rabbi, Priest, Bright Morning Star, Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, Spirit of the Living God, Healer, Sustainer, True and Faithful One, Righteous Judge, Holy One of Israel, Beginning and End.
So say I
Your created, Your Child, Yours Forever

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

A Prayer

October 25, 2014 at 1:45 am (Prayers, Psalms) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Abba,

I’m weary of things that make no sense to me. And I know that likely the problem is the difference between “sense” to You and what “sense” is to me. Father calibrate my senses to Your Word, Your heart, Your mind. Align it to Your sense of justice, Your Truth, Your wisdom in accordance with Your grace and mercy.

Yet hear my heart, I offer it to You out of the strength of my need to give it to You… the only place You have assured that it can be transformed.

Father, so many I love and You love beyond all knowing – struggle. What seems to me to be the origin of which is not knowing truly what You mean by forgiveness. They all say they know You, they all say they love You… how can they not know forgiveness if that’s true?

Deception covers their eyes and masks their wounds with a deadly salve. Abba, I appeal to You for their freedom, release, and protection from the evil one. Division is the hallmark of the lack of Your grace. In both directions, both in the ability to receive it from You and let it flow out as You give in the direction of all around us. Complete pardon. Love given to wounding hearts ignoring the pain, scorning its shame!

I see Your grace and forgiveness like the mightiest river rushing over the mightiest precipice from which we all may step up and stand directly under its crushing but life-giving flow. Yet we all approach, it seems, with thimble sized cups and fill them. Almost out of duty, instead of devotion. Do we do this so as to justify why we give so little when what’s been offered by You is a lifetime supply, full to overflowing, without end? This weighs heavy on my mind… and makes me run to You. Teach me Abba, to enter the rush and crushing blow of Your love and forgiveness. To throw away any of my feeble forms of retrieval, to smash my dainty cups and abandon my thimbles and place myself into the flow of all You would give. To me and through me. Let me not stand hard hearted in the flow once I’m there drenched in Your Mercy, make me a channel not a rock that splatters small drops in all directions minutely. Oh that You would flow in the exact direction You’ve set for me and I would be an open canal of Your grace.
Is this not freedom?

Where is the wolf in sheeps clothing that has misled Your sheep to think forgiveness means a decision but no action? Root out Your enemy, open our eyes to see this invader who is stealing the peace that surpasses understanding in the mystery of Your grace! Blot out the very concept of “deserving” from our minds and let no root of it develope in our hearts. For Your grace only coats the souls of the undeserving. Abba I praise You that we are all equally qualified, with no exceptions!

Oh Sweet Savior Yeshua, intercede according to Your work and glory with every breath You took upon this earth in human form, and with the power of the heaven that came from Your last breath and then the one which brought You back from the depths of our depravity into the finished-ness  – completeness – of Your obedience and Your reward! If we were to count all the breaths You took, You have said the last one was the only one that mattered! Victory in grace and mercy for all time was contained in The Father’s resuscitation from the tomb where You were laid. Resuscitate Your people Father! Blow us away with Your love! Carve, cut, and create anew Your grace and mercy upon our cavernous souls. Open our eyes so that Your glory can shine from them!

Is there any form of hypocrisy in me Abba? Is my weariness caused by seeing logs resulting from the leporous numbness in my own eye which has a splinter? Remove the wormwood thief from my vision O God! For only Your grace can tweeze it from my pupil! Make not my prayer dishonor Your Name, Your Character! For this is the greatest fear of my soul! Make it a holy and a righteous fear infused with devotion to Your ways O Lord! Hear my cry, Abba! Forgive us, and make us so aware of its power to transform that we never find a reason, an offense, that requires a barrier again!

Convince us Father of Your protection so deeply that we abandon all need to self protect! Let us see Your Words that instruct us to ‘guard our hearts’ in the light of Your Truth and wisdom alone. For again it would seem some wolf in sheeps clothing has entered the fold and twisted the meaning. Show us Father that this “guarding” is us, individually keeping watch on our own error and lack of perception of You and Your ways within ourselves! Somehow the wolf has convinced that this guarding pertains to others instead! I am furious at this deception! Avenge Father for it steals from Your glory!

image

Teach, woo, and correct with fierce mercy, us Your children to listen to Your voice and become so accustomed to the sound of You that no wolf can ever deafen or dull our ears to it again!

Rise up O my Father, Righteous Judge and Mercy-giver and hear my cry, I humbly appeal. For I know You hear me and I count on Your answer! Only give me eyes and ears to listen and look for Your immediate and working answer, that I may praise You! That I may praise You!
