Prayer For Acceptance

Whoever comes to me, I will never cast out.  John 6:37

Cast out ~  throw out, drive out, cause to be an outsider.

**********************

I have known the pain of reaching out and of being refused; extending and being turned away.  I will not allow the memories to keep me from fully experiencing You.  I continue to trust You to heal all former rejections.  No widow needs be without a Husband.  No orphan without a Father. No spouse without a Lover.  You are everything and complete every missing piece.  You fill up every vacuum.

When I abide in You, and I dare to believe that all You are is mine, I find joy unspeakable.  You won’t turn Your back on me when I seek You.  When I come, You will be found.  When I reach for You, You will embrace. When I talk, You will catch every word.  When I cry, You will understand every tear.  When I make You my home, You will never cast me out, disown me, or reject me.  Your Word says, So he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” Hebrews 7:25  Thank you.  I know that my salvation and adoption is complete.

So, I will need you courageously and outrageously today.  I won’t play it safe and hold back.  I don’t need to.  I can take risks and fail, Lord.  You applaud my faith and my significance is not in achieving success.  I may sin greatly because my flesh is ever with me.  If I do, I will never worry that our relationship is threatened.  Your Word says, You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. Psalm 86:17

Your love will not disappoint me.  Your character is unchanging and the nature of Your love is eternal.  When tonight comes, no matter what may have happened today, I will know that I dwell in safety and can sleep like a baby because I am Yours.  Amen
