If you want to not only see a glimpse of God’s glory, but experience His Presence in such a way that it almost feels palpable, I encourage you to pray Scripture with a group of Christians. Last night I had the honor of sitting among a group of ten women and praying the 23rd Psalm over a hurting family. We would read a verse or two from the Psalm and then pray that portion of Scripture over that family. We asked God to shepherd them through this dark time, to lead their broken hearts to His still waters, to restore their souls, to let them know that He is with them as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death. We prayed for an hour, each one lifting this family as well as our church body before the throne of God.

It was beautiful and powerful. The love of God radiated from the faces of His precious daughters as we cried out to our Abba Father. The Spirit of God filled the room with a sense of comfort, peace and strength. The peace of God ruled our hearts as we were quieted in His love.

Praying Scripture is a powerful way to see a glimpse of the Father. True power comes from the fervent prayers of God’s children who seek to bring Him glory above all else.

I am so saddened by the circumstances which brought us together last night, but so grateful to have been a part of such a holy moment.

See you tomorrow,

Jen
