FINDING FATHERS HEART
Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. —Exodus 33:13 (John 14:6 I am the way…)
The Father’s heart is generous, kind, loving and willing to bless us. We block God’s grace through prayer by not trusting His heart. We believe that we know what’s best for us and that God’s only desire is to discipline and deprive us.
Like a child climbing into her Father’s lap and laying her head upon his heart, draw close to your Father and he will draw close to you. Listen to His heart. Seek and know his heart, that is our chief quest in life. Experience His amazing Grace- He is Grace!
The greatest gift of grace given through prayer is divine intimacy—the ability to hear the Father’s heartbeat. What the Father has for you in prayer far exceeds anything you could beg for or demand.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Eph. 3:20–21).
FATHER HAS EVERYTHING WE NEED
In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.—John 14:2
Father has prepared a place for you, longs for youMany rooms that take all sorts of shapes for us.

Jesus told them this story: …….. “A man had two son
OUR APPROACH TO FATHER’S HEART
Intimacy with DAD = ‘Abba’ Jesus probably used abbá for God not only in Mk. 14:36 but also whenever the Gk. patḗr occurs. It denotes childlike intimacy and trust, not disrespect.
Paul (Rom. 8:15; Gal. 4:6) may be a echoing a common prayer, possibly of the opening of the Lord’s Prayer.
Expresses the new relationship with FATHER proclaimed and lived out by Jesus and then experienced by believers in him. Only children would call out ‘DADDY’
TOUCHING FATHER’S HEART
Grace has prepared the way for us Important part of OUR SPIRITUAL LIVES; HIS desire is 24/7 relationship with us. We become effective, restful, secure when we seriously push into HIS heart.HE is all around and all encompassing.My heart and THINKING changes when I touch HIS heart
No one knows the Son except the Father and no one knows the Father except the Son (Matt. 11:27); I am not alone, for the Father is with me (John 16:32);
CHRIST’S ACTIVITY REGARDING THE FATHER
I speak of what I have seen with my Father (John 8:38); greater works than these will he do because I go to the Father (John 14:12); I will answer prayer, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:13); I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God (John 20:17);
THE FATHER’S ACTIVITY REGARDING CHRIST
The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world (1 John 4:14); as the living Father sent me and as I live because of the Father (John 6:57); the Son can only do what he sees the Father doing (John 5:19); Father, thank you that you heard me (John 11)
