eagle’s flight – Room with 12 Doors Prayer Workbook – Each New Me – 7/20/17

I’ve been creating pictures of me and my relationship to God. Much of it comes from my coming to grips with particular scripture passages that catch my attention.
I’m doing this in order to live more deeply into these passages and see what they mean and how they work in my walk and practice.
So, This picture below is a picture of me at my current stage of growth in God. It’s not a complete picture and it changes slightly as I continue walking it out. It is what I currently see in part of me on my journey.

and here is a prayer I’ve crafted around this picture …
You wash me as I stand before you
 
Lord, I come before You
Standing on the Rock of Your death
Rooted through to the River of Living Water
buried beneath
Wash me as I draw the water up
Wash
my physical vitality and drive
my heart felt love and purpose
my mind’s understanding
and my ability to see with Your eyes
You crown me with Your Glory
and I overflow with Your Love and Life
for those I meet
and touch
indeed Lord,
make it so

and for those interested, here is an annotated version of this picture. This is how I currently see my relationship with God. It springs from my “House of the Lord” prayers and my “Room with 12 Doors” meditations.

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
