Pray Dangerously

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8 KJV

What are you asking God for?

Through prayer

You have access to the Almighty

The One who created all things

He is the beginning and the ending

All knowledge resides in Him

All power resides in Him

Through faith and belief in Christ

The authority of God’s power

Transfers to you

What are you asking God for?

To keep you safe?

To help you have a nice day?

To help your team win?

To heal an illness?

Try asking him for something

More dangerous

Try praying like David

Search me, O God

And know my heart

Try me

And know my thoughts

And see

If there be any wicked way in me

And lead me in the way everlasting

Praying like this invites God

To have an intimate relationship

With you

It accepts that you acknowledge

His ability to know your thoughts

And love you anyway

It gives Him your permission

To enter your mind

The most dangerous place

For Him to be

The most powerful place

For you to allow Him access

Letting God into our heart

Is easy

But allowing Him into our mind

That’s true vulnerability

Yes, He has the ability

To enter our mind

At any time

But He allows us free will

And will only activate His Holy Spirit

When we invite Him in

Most of us only invite Him

Into our heart

We keep our thoughts hidden

Allowing darkness to lurk and play

Live dangerously

Invite God into your mind

Fair warming

Your thoughts create your reality

If you pray

Psalms 139:23-24

Earnestly

Sincerely

Your world will change

Which does not necessarily mean

It will get more comfortable

It’s your choice

You may stay with the safety

Of your regular daily prayers

Or you may choose

To live more dangerously
