A cool dream…

So, I’ve been having very vivid dreams. Mostly odd. But last night was different.

I was in a very spacious place. I was wearing a blue robe, of all things. My friends Cat and Jess were there. I was down. I was needing encouragement and prayer. Then all of a sudden, they led me to a place where I waited. So many children were led into the place I was at… it seemed like hundreds. Very small children all the way through about junior high.

They came because they wanted to pray for me. Not because someone asked them to, not because someone made them come to pray for me… just because they wanted to. So they come and I hear a silent rumble, which I discover is their prayers. Then something really cool happened…

My friend Cat went over to the piano. Everything came to a hush. A beautiful song began to play. It was a familiar song, but not a song that had been on my mind… in fact, I hadn’t heard the song in months. I thought she was just providing instrumental background music. Someone led me to the edge of something like a stage, at the level of the children’s heads. The children gathered in groups. I was led to kneel before them… the little hands reached out to touch me and cover me. They began to sing the song that Cat was playing. They weren’t just singing though. They were praying the song over me, singing so beautifully. They were emotional. The prayers were like the groans of the Holy Spirit flowing through them, through the words of the song. I was so blessed… so humbled… so amazed… so emotional, with tears flowing down my face. I never would have dreamed God would bless me like this, but here He was. His presence was so thick in that place, so real, so personally intimate. And the words of the song were perfect. They sang…

Pour Your Spirit Out (by Shannon Wexelberg)
(watch/listen here )

Lord I seek you, help me find You, how I need Your touch
Find my dry and broken places
Thirsty for your love
Lord forgive me, if I’ve wandered far away from You
You are all I’ve ever needed
Come and make me new

Pour your Spirit out on me
Fall just like the rain
Saturate my thirsty soul
Come and fall afresh on me
And fill my cup again
Heal my heart and make me whole
I need You now
Pour Your Spirit out

I need you now… I need you now… I need you now…
like the desert needs the rain
I need you now… oh, touch my heart again
I need you now… oh, come sweet Spirit
I need you now… I need you now…

Pour your Spirit out on me
Fall just like the rain
Saturate my thirsty soul
Come and fall afresh on me
And fill my cup again
Heal my heart and make me whole
I need You now
Pour Your Spirit out
