The Dangerous Prayer

"You took a risk trusting Me, and now you're healed and whole. Live well, live blessed!" (Luke 8:48 The Message)

As a young man within the first few steps into my life long experience along with Jesus, a preacher taught me a prayer of which I have in no way forgotten about. It really is a prayer every single individual can pray - indeed, a prayer each and every person ought to pray.

However, I ought to advise you....it's a hazardous prayer. It's easy, however serious; special, and yet complete. It contains both a humble plea, also as a bold faith. This prayer isn't very likely to be prayed by men and women that are unclear about gratifying God, and it certainly would never ever find voice within those who are constantly anxious about pleasing humanity.

Nevertheless, it really is a prayer that needs to be prayed.

But, it's harmful. Hazardous because it is irreversible; it will most undoubtedly be answered by God, still though at occasions you will wish you had by no means prayed it. The moment He hears this specific prayer rise from your heart, the inevitable answer is without a doubt set in motion - plus every future cries to the contrary will certainly fall as duds to the floor.

Alright. I have supplied you honest forewarning. You now continue at your own risk. I need to caution you, nevertheless, that simply looking at this unique prayer may be misconstrued by God as you actually praying it. Therefore in case there exists any measure of cowardice in you quit right at this point! You should not move forward!!

But with regard to people who are trustworthy and also brave, and who hunger for God to use your own life to produce a significant difference in this world - here's this harmful prayer:

Lord Jesus, do in me anything you need to do, so that you can do through me everything you want to do. Amen.

Those that take this risk and trust Jesus with their lives, will find healing and wholeness over this path of their great journey; they'll live good, and be blessed in every single course of action. And that, my good friend, is worth taking the risk.
