A Prayer for Passionate Women


I pray you take your place
knowing it is anywhere
and everywhere God calls you.

I pray you know your calling
until your power becomes
unshakeable,
irrevocable and secure;
that you never shrink from the fierceness
and strength of it,
knowing what God starts, he always finishes.

I pray the needs of the broken
and the depth of your power humbles you;
that the weight of both leads you to a
poured-out,
face-down surrender
that strengthens your back,
bones,
and bloodlines.

I pray His presence in you
reverberates into the atmosphere
and heals bodies
and souls
and spirits.

I pray your life carves a path
of free access to the King
until exclusion
and condescension
become a thing of the past.

I pray all of who you are bleeds out
into your expression of the Creator
until there is no separating you and Him,
Him and you.
you and Him…

I pray who you are today is only a shadow
of who you become tomorrow because
you see Jesus face-to-face
and suddenly everything is different.

I pray your faith becomes an ever-expanding,
every-deepening foundation;
that on top of it rises a cathedral
built of laughter,
long talks,
and good coffee.

I pray the Good Father holds you so tightly that
every pain-conceived perception
of his nature would fade away
as his goodness consumes you.

I pray you champion other women
and your fullness of joy
and abundance of strength
pulls them into the Holy Presence where they are filled,
and together you become a force to be reckoned with.

I pray you dance a dance of freedom
across the back of every enemy and
into the life of every person you love and
Holy Spirit power shakes the ground with
your every step.

I pray your beauty spills over
and washes your eyes,
to clearly see the image of God within you;
that in the wake of this seeing,
a wave of revelation sweeps those you love
whether by blood,
choice
or circumstance.

I pray you hear the roar as all of Creation
breaks out in an Earth-shaking
Joyful celebration
of that woman in the mirror.

I pray you hear the music as they all join
in the song from Good Father’s heart,
“My daughter,
she is fierce and she is holy
.
She is tender and she is strong.
My daughter, my daughter,
An expression of Me.”

Amen. Amen.
So be it.
