The Dreaming Prayer
“The Dreaming Prayer”
Meditation on Prayer
Are you at a place in your life where you are thinking,
Do you often feel like you have reached a dead end?
Maybe it seems like nothing really works out for you.
Or, you just have no idea that life can be different than what your life is at this moment.
Feeling hopeless or unloved?
It does not feel good, does it? It is not where you wanted to be right now, I understand that so well.
Please be patient, my friend.
LEARNING to walk with our Creator is a life-long journey. I am still learning every day, even after giving my life to Jesus Christ over forty years ago. Sometimes I think I am a very slow learner.
There are some questions to ask yourself that will help you get a better idea of what you really think.
They are known as “worldview” questions.
Where are YOU GOING?
Where have you come from?
What will you GET?
The best news is that you can make changes now to make your life different than what it is today. I have done this. I promise you that your circumstances and possibilities in life will change forever and for the BEST because
YOU CAN ASK GOD
to guide you and give you the insight you need, day by day.
What do you long for – what do you want more than anything else in your life?
PUT YOUR DESIRE into WORDS!
The desires you have are uniquely your own. They will fit your personality and YOUR talents.
You do have a calling from God for your life and you can find it once you begin to think about it seriously.
Are you facing a mountain that seems like it is too high to scale?
Are you in a treacherous place where you would not choose to be standing?
Have you experienced loss or failure?
Maybe it is time to make some adjustments in your life.
Do you need some divine help and guidance from God?
Let me recommend something that changed my own life many years ago.
I’d like to share with you what I found one day and it changed the entire course of my life.
The Dreaming Prayer
This unusual prayer was first introduced by Catherine Marshall, in her 1961 book,
Specifically, look in the book and read Chapter 11 – “Dreams Come True.”
Catherine’s mother taught her about the Dreaming Prayer. You see, we are really on a pilgrimage all through our life. But, we don’t know that. Someone has to help us understand it sometimes. Catherine helped me to learn The Dreaming Prayer one day in the 1970s as I read her book.
We have a DIVINE PURPOSE in our life. We have an “inner voice” that speaks to us but we have to be quiet enough to begin to listen for it. That “still, small voice” is the voice of your CREATOR. He is speaking through the Holy Spirit, directly to YOU. But you have to be quiet and begin to listen to hear it.
The Dreaming Prayer is a prayer of helplessness. We are asking God to help us and to set our feet on the best path of his plan for us.
Best of all, the prayer will open the windows of
for us and it is nothing but the BEST POSSIBLE life we can imagine.
Ask God to guide you in your prayer.
You and I need help! We need to REGROUP.
The Dreaming Prayer will do that for you!
You will soon discover that this prayer is really all about YOU! What is it that is deep inside your spirit that is longing to have a presence in your life? Speak it out loud to God right now as it comes to your mind.
You may ask – What if this prayer is not right for me?
TEST the prayer!
Does it fit with the scriptures in the bible? God would never ask us to do anything that is not affirmed by His Word! Seek his guidance through his word. Spend time reading the scriptures and listen for God’s voice to guide you as you are meditating on his word. He will do that for you. He will speak directly to your heart and you will know his presence in your life at those moments.
Does it benefit or edify other Christians? God will never ask you to do anything that would harm the body of Christ (other believers). Does it lift up others as well as yourself? Your life purpose will be a benefit to yourself as well as to those who are around you.
Expect to have some closed doors. This is often God’s way of directing you to his higher purpose for your life. Please remember this: DO NOT KICK DOWN DOORS! That door has been closed as a providential circumstance in your life – Use your common sense and not your emotions. Stay CALM when you come upon a closed door. Do NOT panic! It will be for the good that you would not have been able to encounter if you had walked through an open door that was not right for you.
Be sure what you are asking for is not for God to take anything from another person to give to you! Never covet what another person has and never ask God to take away something from another person to fulfill your prayer. What God has for YOU will be just for YOU – a new thing that he has planned for your life that is yours alone
Go ahead, find out for yourself.
Go beyond yourself. You will be so glad you took the plunge and prayed The Dreaming Prayer.
