Prayer for Genesis 18:2

“He looked up, and he saw three men standing near him. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of the tent to meet them and bowed to the ground.”

Heavenly Father, what a great encouragement to know we can also enjoy the close, intimate fellowship Abraham enjoyed, once his faith was reckoned as righteousness. How precious to realise that he was a friend of God, and that the Lord came to visit him as he sat under the oaks of Mamre, in the heat of the day. But what a privilege is mine when I realise that I have permanent access to Your holy presence and can commune with You every moment of the day - through prayer and praise, thanksgiving and worship... and how I thank You that my body is the very temple of the Holy Spirit. May I come to an ever growing understanding of the incredible privilege of having the Spirit of Christ indwelling my mortal frame. Heighten in me an increasing awareness and reverence of You.. in the knowledge that You are my Friend, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
