Wash Us Clean…
We raise our voice in victory. We cry out to our Father God by the name of Jesus Christ that fills us with the Holy Spirit.
Father God, we are your bondservant, teach us, give us eyes to see and a heart for Your sons and daughters.
Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. So He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, “Lord, do You wash my feet?” Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand hereafter.” ~John 13:5-7 NASB95
Wake us, Father, from our dreams, wake us to Your glory, to Your beauty and fill us with Your loving kindness. Wash us clean in this day, and all the days to come. As Your servant, Father, show us the Way. Lead us to Your mansion, to Your Light on the hill. Bring us in from the darkness that covers us and hides our heart. Shine the Light of truth upon our soul. Free us from this captive body of flesh and transform our heart, transform our minds and bind our mind with the Mind of Christ. Bind Your will to our will and we will follow.
Strengthen us to understand how deep the humility runs in the act of washing our brothers and our sisters feet. Let Your Power rain down upon us, fill us and give us the boldness of expectation in You, for You are always going before us in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Lead us, Father. into the days where You reign over every soul. Lead us, Father, into the days when satan is locked away for a thousand years not once seeing the Light he so desperately tried to snuff out in Your children.
Let the humility of seeing Your beauty bring us to our knees in awe and wonder. Let the Light of Your love fill the spaces around each of us that are called to follow Jesus Christ. Let the Strength of Your voice, in the quiet and stillness, be as a lions roar as we share the Living Word, the Living Waters of Jesus Christ with this sinful world.
My son, observe the commandment of your father
And do not forsake the teaching of your mother;
Bind them continually on your heart;
Tie them around your neck.
When you walk about, they will guide you;
When you sleep, they will watch over you;
And when you awake, they will talk to you.
For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light;
And reproofs for discipline are the way of life. ~Proverbs 6:20-23 NASB95
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
