Praying to see our Heavenly Father

Philip prayed of Jesus:

LORD, show us the Father,
and we will be satisfied,
contented, fulfilled,
gratified.


And The Way of the Father,
The Truth of the Father, The Life
of the Father replied:

I AM with you,
and you do not know?
You pray for Me to show
you the Father but can you not see?

I AM in the Father
and the Father in Me.

  1. This entry from John 14:6-10 reminds me of a post I wrote today about the artist mirroring society, only Christ reminds us that He mirrors the Father, just as we all are mirrored in His image. If only we can see this truth through faith in His wisdom and acts of goodness to all mankind in His name. This is my prayer. Amen.
