一年多前寫給上帝的一封信

想與大家分享我曾經做的,早已忘記了的一個禱告。
下面是我在Urbana 2012 時寫的一封禱告信,一年多後的今天在信箱裡收到。

P1100487blur

Urbana 是一個三年一次的青宣大會,在美國密苏里州的聖路易斯。上帝為我預備,為我供應,給我機會去,是要我學習開闊眼界,看到世界各個地方多麼需要人去分享福音和真理。我看到了一個人願意為主擺上一切來服事祂的時候,上帝能透過這一個人來改變世界。我學習到了如何透過神的眼光來面對和處理人生的點點滴滴,而不是透過自己的角度與態度。我看到了神怎樣能夠把真正無法形容的平安,喜樂,與愛放在你心中。就這樣,我那時,2012年12月30, 寫了這封信… 

Prayer-Dec'12

裡面寫的是…

Dear God,

Lord, the experience at Urbana has been… beyond words. Thank you for bringing me here and allowing me to witness your presence and your love through all of this. Thank you for the speakers, the seminars, and the heart to heart times at night. Learning about at-risk children and youth, sports ministry, spiritual warfare & mission, responding to atheism, vocational ministry, and ways to reach your world, and more – Lord, all of it burdens my heart to do more for your Kingdom. 

Lord, I pray you provide me with an opportunity to go on a meaningful, short-term mission trip this summer. Allow it to benefit, not harm the people. Lord, I dedicate my life, all of me, to you. Take all of me and use me, Lord. I long to draw closer with you. Help me to be able to be strong and have great faith in you, in relationships, friendships, safety, school, and all else that I would struggle to accept changes in. Lord, you know the longings of my heart, you know my human desires, Lord, but may Your will be done. I know You have the very best planned for me. Help me to be able to converse daily with You and experience You in ways I have not before. Help my life and experiences be able to testify for your glory. Develop in me a character of complete love for your people. Help me, especially, O Lord, to trust You and draw strength from You as I start to serve in Canaan Life Spring [Baptist] Church and love Your lost sons and daughters there.

I long to have a mutual, interactive, REAL relationship with you, daily, together. I love You, Lord. Thank you for being my Saviour. Let nothing come between us, God. Let sin not keep me from loving and serving You and Your people. =) Thank You Jesus! 

Love, Esther

這是我的信。你說上帝聽不聽禱告?上禮拜許宏度教授提醒我們的- 多禱告,多有動力!禱告了,只要是合祂心意的,神是一定會聽的。神就為我做了安排,我就這樣子,去台灣短宣,經歷了祂說祂要給我(我也向祂要)的真平安,喜樂,與愛。在Urbana, 聽了許多講座,學了很多關於 at-risk children & youth, spiritual warfare & mission, ways to reach your world… 上帝不讓我忘記所學的 – 在短宣的過程,學得都經歷到也用上了。你說奇妙不奇妙?在上帝掌管的世界裡,是沒有偶然的。走在神的道路上,我們應當因此為每天的每一個時刻獻上感謝與讚美,因為上帝的安排是最好的安排。
