The History: A couple of years ago, I started journaling my prayers and God's responses to them. I told my friends about this, they were really interested. I told my Pastor about it and he said, how about sharing those on line. When I asked God, He said, my words are for you, but not just for you. And, here we are...I hope He speaks to you in these words.

Father's Day...

My prayer:
Mighty and awesome God. Creator of the universe and Father to all humanity. I honor you tonight in recognition of Father's Day. Thank you for being my father. Thank you for teaching me what that really means through the amazing "fathers" and "big brothers" you put in my life over the last several years.

It was only a few years ago when we were in Israel that the minister asked me, "Who is God to you and who is he not." My answer at that time was that you were teacher, healer and Lord in my life but that you were not father because my only concept of father was pretty twisted. I didn't know about a loving father who wanted to protect and provide for his children. "Father" to me at the time meant abuse, control and anger. Thank you for showing me the real meaning of "father." Thank you for healing my relationship with my biological dad. Thank you for healing the wounds and the holes that were left by a messed up childhood and bringing me to this place where I can rest and trust you as father in my life. You took what was a huge void in my life and within a matter of a few years, turned it into one of the most blessed areas of my life.

Thank you Father. I love you so much! I pray that I never lose the dependency of a daughter on her father with you.

What God said tonight:
It's good. When I created the world and all that was in it, I recognized it as being inherently good. Some things have happened since then. Things that make it hard to always see the good, but see with my eyes and you will see the good that is still there.

Every hurt can be healed, no matter how deep. Every pain can be soothed, no matter how intense. Your pain was a great example of the limitlessness of the healing that is yours. You must never forget. You must always remember that there is no pain, no problem no situation that is too much for me to take care of.

With earthly fathers, kids usually believe that to be true of their dad for a period of time when they are young. Then something almost always happens to show them that it is not true and they become disillusioned. They realize that dad is just a human, just a man and there is disappointment, a let down. But with me, there never needs to be that let down. I will never let you down. I need you to understand that, especially in the days to come. I need you to be always aware of my power in your life. I need you to always remember that you are my number one priority.

I love you daughter. I had a wonderful day. Thank you for spending time with me.

  1. Marilyn, as you know I also grew up with a skewed view of what a father was supposed to be and unfortunately for far too many years carried that into my relationship with my Father God. However, in the last few years, He completed what He promised me many years ago and that was to heal my relationship with my earthly dad. My earthly dad passed last year just before Father's Day and it was on his deathbed that the Lord brought us together forged complete forgiveness and healed both of us. I still owe Zyxter my testimony, it will come but I need to rewrite it and include this. Today, alone on Father's Day, I spent much time thinking about how God, my Elohim, El Shaddai, and Adonai has changed my attitude and thoughts re: what a Father is and how I relate to Him as my Father God. I give Him all the glory, honor, and praise for that incredible transformation. Hallelujah!
