The language of love is prayer
he Who Has Been Forgiven Much — Loves Much
- Luke 7:47 -
Prayer is not a ritual of going through empty motions and asking for what we want and hoping we will get it because He alone is to be our exceedingly great reward. Prayer is not saying a few things to YAHveh (the LORD) and feeling you rendered Him a portion of your day. Prayer is the love song of our Bridegroom saying, “Come away with Me, My beloved.” Prayer is to be near Him and to commune, worship and praise Him. To seek Him with all our heart until we find Him and then He rewards us with His enveloping, infusing, infilling love that will not fail. Love becomes stronger the more and more we repent. It is the expression of His love to forgive us and embrace us close to Himself in oneness and intimacy as the sin is removed by the power of the blood. The language of prayer and the language of love cannot be separated. He who has been forgiven much—loves much (see Luke 7:47). We are so magnetized by love responding to His love and that love growing and growing that we want to talk to Him and be with Him and everything pales in comparison. It is a constant intimate love and its embrace gets stronger and stronger and the desire to be with Him in His Presence and near Him doesn’t ever need words other than worshipping Him, which is the ultimate.
This is life with your Beloved walking hand in hand in agreement with Him. Loving what He loves hating what He hates and being so enthralled and one with Him that we don’t want anything to separate us. Nothing can separate us but we have to cultivate that through the language of love, which is prayer. This is only going to stem forth through coming out of the ritual and the obligation and developing the hatred for the things of this world (friendship with the world) by putting all of your affection on your Beloved.
Prayer brings us out of this world and its distractions and lifts us up into such a plane of love in the Presence of our great King and Savior that the things that use to be important to us as Apostle Paul said, “[I] count them but dung” (Philippians 3:8 KJV) compared to knowing YAHshua (Jesus) and to be loving and intimate with Him. We are to share in His suffering as a man of sorrows familiar with grief who did not walk as the world walked but went outside of the camp to suffer. In that separation from the world to go outside and be with YAHshua our beloved, we will not only know Him in His sufferings but we will know Him in His resurrection and power.
Therefore being near and enthralled with His Presence and filled with the love He has for us and us for Him, that is our reward! Anything short of that is not coming away, it is staying earthbound asking for the things of this earth which is foolishness because it is the very thing that we are to leave to follow Him and become like Him−one with Him now and into eternity.
