“Eternity’s Breath”, from L.Willows (Glory of God, God’s Love, See Jesus)

When our hearts see Jesus
We behold Love’s Root.
All of our forever’s
wrap around in salute.

Here is our Beginning,
the One that stood with
Father and Spirit
in Eternity’s breath.

Fathom the futures
that gaze from that Love,
extending embrace,
in the gift of His grace.

Holiness tendered
here for receiving-
Letting, Love’s setting,
parted for such needing.

Thirst, we do thirst
and long to come home.
Rain full Lord’s Spirit,
refresh our hearts roam.

Lord, we walk towards you,
journeying still.
As we see Jesus,
the Way fills with Love’s till.

Lord, in abundance with The Glory you fill.
Generous Giver, receive us Until.

John 1:14 —And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 8:12 —Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 17:22 —The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one.

“The Air We Breathe”, from L.Willows (Prayer, Unity, Call us Home, Love)

john1721beloved

I long for a gathering that would bring our voices together again. I long for a gathering in this hour that would bring our hearts lovingly before the Lord in Unity.

God, I am praying for your Holy Breath through the power of Your Spirit, that we may be filled today with Your Oneness.  Bend us towards you, convict each of our hearts of sin and help us to repent. We are humbled before you in confession. We depart from you when we do not love, when we judge and when we create false boundaries. Our pride is a mask that blinds us and leads us into a land far from you.

Bring us home, Father into the tent of Your everlasting Love. Gather us as your family. Be the Air that Breathes hope and new life into each of our lives. Lead us into tomorrow with courage, strengthened by Your Presence.

Lead us from fear and secure our hearts in the temple of Your Eternal Understanding. Call us home to Your loving Security when we become separated. Guard us against temptations of this world that fan the flames of your adversaries and lead us in the paths of Righteousness.

Forgive us when we depart from You. Forgive us when we forget that You are the Air that we Breathe. We pray to be in Your Holy Presence. May Your Holy and Living Breath dwell in our hearts in this and every moment. Be the cause that walks before us in our lives. Lord, unite us in the name of your love, in the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

(Words to the Hillsong Song “Breathe”)

This is the Air I Breathe
This is the Air I Breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me

Chorus

And I
I’m desperate for you
And I
I’m lost without you

 

“Danced in graced prayer” a poem from LWillows

 

When I danced,
I felt the sweep of a such wind
Catching through all motion’s tone
All on the call from the notes sweet roam.

When I danced
I felt moments before all began
The breath before a pulse to start
Muscle, aim and the form would join heart.

When I danced
I felt joy freed in a gift
Spacious, open and light as a lift
Shared beyond measure, farther than space
Not of my own, but another, of grace.

When I danced
for a sweet time,
I was young, mortal kind,
afloat in God’s air
gifted this, such a dare
in life’s wondrous most cherished
and lovely graced prayer.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
