Father, Part the Waters!



I am quite certain You have heard these words from Your child’s lips of late. “Father, What is going on in this world? What is going on in my personal world?” Yet, Your faithful response to their cries might have been drowned out by the fear, static, and noise cluttering Your child’s heart.

So, I will let You repeat Your Words.

“Come to Me!”

Yes, “Come to Me” is quite the invitation! (Matthew 11:28)  As we come near to You, may awe come upon our souls as we learn of Your will, Your truths, and Your ways. (Acts 2:43) May we remember all Your deeds of old Father! For Your way is righteous and holy. What god is a God like You? You are the God who works wonders for those who ask. (Psalm 77:11-14) Your word says that you will again and again do wonders upon wonders for Your people. (Isaiah 29:14) Why should we doubt Your good, perfect and pleasing will now? (Romans 12:2)

You drove back the sea for the Children of Israel as Moses, at Your command, stretched out his hand. Father, today as many of Your children are at their own Red Sea moments we stir-up the waters at Your command with what we have in our hands (and hopefully have forever knitted in our hearts); Your Words. Your Words Prayed. Your Words Prayed in this Three Stranded Prayer. For Your Word is sent forth with a purpose; to heal and deliver. (Psalm 107:20) Your Word stirs up the high waters!

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the LORD
drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and
made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
Exodus 14:21

Divide the waters drowning Your child’s faith, their sanity, and yes, even drowning their love. Rescue them from allowing their love to grow cold and from their hearts shutting down from fear. (Daniel 6:27) No, this isn’t the time to abandon our faith in the One whose Hands move in compassion and whose thoughts are continually on us. (Psalm 8:3-4) Forgive us Father for doubting Your love for even the slightest tiny moment. It is our desire to replace any of our unholy moments of doubt, fear, anxiety, depression, dread, whining or complaining with this prayer to stir up the waters before us:

O’ LORD, our Lord. How majestic is Your name in all the earth. (Psalm 8:1) You are my God who is near and never far off. You fill the heavens and the earth. I cannot run, hide, or be missed by You. (Jeremiah 23:23-24) You said to Moses as he sought You; “Here I am.” How faithful You are Father! Seeing Your heart of faithfulness to provide security and assurance to Your children in the holy scriptures strengthens my own heart to endure, battle, and also rest as I stand here at my Red Sea. May we meet face-to face today so I may hear Your voice for myself as to what Your plans, promises, and purposes are for me, as I stand paralyzed before deep waters. I ask to come away from Your presence courageous and full of promises to stir the waters. (Exodus 3:4, 33:7,9-11) Then this will be my appeal to heaven’s holy throne: Father, part the waters too deep for us to stand up against alone. Yes, do wonders upon wonders for me and my house and Your name will be made known as “Faithful and True” through my very lips forever more. My offering is my continual reverence and praises of which You are so very worthy! (Joshua 24:15 and Revelation 19:11) Thank You I can walk on dry land through the impossible high waters away from the hurt, pain, confusion, lack, disease, grief, and brokenness into the land of Your goodness and mercy. My heart is relieved and thankful! (Psalm 25:17 NIV) All the glory and honor to You, forever and ever. 


Praying you meet with Him today face-to-face to stir up the waters with His Words and Prayer. Xo

“Come to me!”

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
