PRAYER TO SEE JESUS
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
How my eyes need to see Your glory, Jesus. Since my eyes are the window to my soul, my soul is ravaged by what I see here. Brokenness is in my view. People I love need You and they have not yet turned toward You. I am watching them self-destruct, trying everything except falling to their knees for Your salvation. My soul is so affected by their story. I need a new glimpse of You.
Open my eyes. Break open the heavens. Show me Your glory. Help me hear Your voice where I’ve never heard it before. Help me see Your face where I’ve never looked before. As much as my mortal body can take, let me be stunned by You.
I know what I am asking, Jesus. Seeing Your glory means that I may see truth I’ve never seen before. But You will never bring any truth, even truth that is painful, without wrapping it in the language of grace. If I can just experience You, I am willing to hear anything because Your love catches me when I fall.
No one tells the truth like You. No one is gracious like You. No one is glorious like You. Let me see so much of Your glory today that my soul is captured and wordless. Invade my theology with personal experience. In Jesus name, Amen
