Lazaroo – Thursday, October 15, 2009

Oct 15, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with undiluted sincerity:

“The king said to me, ‘What is it you want?’ Then I prayed to the God of heaven.”
(Nehemiah 2:4)

Am I prepared for that question, Jesus?

Or have I let Your dreams in me die?

The thing is…

I’m not sure which of my “wants” are from You.

Some of the things on my list sound pretty selfish.

Other things I could mention might make me look downright holy –

until You took a glance at the motives of my heart.

If I knew the next three things I named would be mine for the asking

could I identify them immediately?
would I choose wisely?

or would I be speechless?

But why bother with such questions? I’ve never had a king ask me, “What is it you want?”

Or have I?

Jesus, You…are King of kings.

Are You asking me that question

right now?

1 Kings 1:16; Matthew 20:21-23; 1 Samuel 20:4; 1 Kings 3:5; Psalms 81:10; Matthew 18:18; Matthew 21:22; Mark 6:22-29; Mark 11:24; John 14:12-14

What is Lazaroo?
