2015-04-01 13.44.51After working over 30 years in corporate America and rendering public service in a state government agency, I am finally where I belong—the Prayer Room.  Although it is not a popular place, nor is it a public meeting place, it is the perfect place for me simply because by nature I am a private person.  As an only child, I adjusted quickly to solitude and I learned to embrace silence.

The Prayer Room is the place designated to pray; the supernatural is welcomed to invade the natural, which results in spiritual transformation.   Change is not always visible to the naked eye, yet there are moments when obvious change has taken place beyond our finite comprehension.

I am so thankful that purpose pursued me! I am at peace in this place of prayer, where God’s presence penetrates the core of my being, invades my heart and pure worship captivates my soul.  I have been summoned to this place for purpose.

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! 

My journey to this place was destined by God before the foundations of the world. It is being in this place that I am convinced of my call to prayer and intercession. More importantly, I am humbled to be entrusted with serving my King and partnering with Him in Kingdom assignment.

“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 AMP

The path that I traveled these 30 plus years has not been without challenges—detours, obstacles, curves, and cliffs (trials and tribulations).  As I reflect on my journey, I am convinced that God Almighty had me on the path to promise even when I didn’t realize it. He has proven Himself faithful to keep His promise: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Now that I’m in this secret place, I know there is more for me to learn and do. As Apostle Paul said,”

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.  No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:12-14
