Oh Lord Jesus Christ, make Your home in our hearts! Lord Jesus, thank You that today You are doing only one work! You are carrying out only one ministry – Your heavenly ministry. You are interceding for us in the heavenlies so that in every situation and circumstance You would be more and more dispensed into our being! Do this in us, Lord, until You have fully saturated and permeated every part of our mind, emotion and will! O, Lord, in this way, through this organic, daily dispensing, make Your home in our hearts. Thank You, Lord, that You do this practically through Your word. Praise the Lord for, LET the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly! Hallelujah, the Lord is the Spirit! Hallelujah, the WORDS You have spoken to us are Spirit and are life!
Lord Jesus, we open our heart to You that You would infuse into us a love, an appreciation, a yearning, a deep-rooted almost biological addiction to Your Word! Lord Jesus, awaken us morning by morning and draw us to dine with You even before our physical breakfast! Lord, may we treasure Your word more than our apportioned food. Amen, Lord, in this way, through the daily dispensing, may we be constituted into a different kind of people. Make us a people who are holding forth the word of life, those shinning forth as luminaries! Oh Lord, thank You we can be such luminaries since we have the right constitution! It is not a matter of our trying, our imitating, our desiring, but this comes out of our enjoying in a practical and daily way the riches in the Word of God! Hallelujah, as the Word grows and multiplies in us, we become normal overcoming Christians!
Oh Lord, we yearn to be such NORMAL, OVERCOMING Christians! Lord, fill us with Your Word to such an extent, that we cannot but speak. Our speaking would simply be an overflow of our enjoyment of the riches in the Word. These words then will be a light, a salvation, a comfort, a supply, a building to every one with whom we come into contact. Lord Jesus, Dear Lord Jesus, for this we open to you regarding our daily living! Lord, practically, we want to be like Daniel and like Peter – faithful to have set times during our day to contact You in prayer over Your Word! Oh Lord, be the faithful God in us for the sake of the growth and multiplication and spreading of Your word unto the confines of the whole inhabited earth!
Oh that Christ may make His home our heart,
Spread Himself in every part!
Saturate and life impart!
That with all saints, I may apprehend
All the vast dimensions of my loving Christ.
