Whoa Nellie!

Few events bring everything to a stop like a good midwestern Winter snowstorm. Some come on fast and sudden while others build slowly over time. Both accomplish the same thing – temporary hibernation!

If you had the power to actually bring everything to a stop, why would you do it? What would be so important to you that it was worth hitting the pause button?

For God, that something is our prayers!

When the Lamb ripped off the seventh seal, Heaven fell quiet— complete silence for about half an hour. I saw the Seven Angels who are always in readiness before God handed seven trumpets. Then another Angel, carrying a gold censer, came and stood at the Altar. He was given a great quantity of incense so that he could offer up the prayers of all the holy people of God on the Golden Altar before the Throne. Smoke billowed up from the incense-laced prayers of the holy ones, rose before God from the hand of the Angel. ~ Revelation 8:1-4

God quiets all of heaven to hear the prayes of His people!

So… You have God’s attention.

What do you want to talk with Him about?

    >> What do you want to talk with Him about? <<

    I talk to Him about everything now.
    When I am ACTUALLY in His presence, I doubt if I will be able to talk. I will be so overcome that all I can do is fall at His feet and worship Him.
