Gentle clouds roll in over a dry, barren wilderness. The tepid atmosphere is transforming. The first pitter-pattering of rain on the hard, cracked ground is heard. The water droplets yearn to penetrate into the depths of the Earth. They are succumbed to the pull of gravity; yet into the matrix of soil, they can not immerse. Alas, the quenching droplets decide to just sit.
Let not one drop go to waste. Make ready the ground! Till up the Earth! Aerate the soil! Be ready for the next rainfall; that your parched land will be thirsty no more.
Our hearts become hardened with the pressures of our world. The pollution of our environment forces walls to be built within. Lord, make us ready.
In Hebrews 3:7, The Holy Spirit says, “Today when you hear His voice, don’t harden your hearts.”
Lord, today I cry out to you: soften my heart. I want to hear your voice. Holy Spirit, tear down the walls I have built within me. Plow through the rock that is a barrier between us, Father God. I want more of you. I need you.
*If you said this prayer for the first time today, or the first time in a long time; please let me know! I would love to come along beside you and celebrate with you!
