Anoint Me to be of service to you.
It is a hard thing for you to consider–Me serving you, but that is what prayer does it–
- Enlists My service
- Calls upon My help
- Sets Me to act on your behalf
I AM not appalled at this–I crave it!
I want you to seek Me out–daily, hourly, whatever you can spare. But I AM most pleased when you are not ‘sparing’ time for Me, but ‘spending’ time with Me.
Freely and lavishly spending your time on Me.
I came to serve and to teach you to walk in My footsteps–to follow My example. So pray–actively and seek to enlist My active response.
I AM listening
I AM at your service, even as you are all about mine.
“Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper, laid aside his garments, and girded himself with a towel. Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.” Jn. 13:3-5
“When he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and resumed his place, he said to them, ‘Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” Jn. 12-16
“–whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave; even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matt. 20:26-28
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” Jn. 14:12-14
“For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those that do evil.” I Pet. 3:12
“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples.” Jn. 15:7-8
