Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from “The Gospel of Mary Magdalene”.
Today I pray, “Dear God, I feel a deeply intimate connection with Jesus, especially since He came to me in a vision during the early morning hour on May 21st, this year. He was seated on a stool at the foot of my bed. I saw His profile before me in the room. I was seated on His right hand side. Today, I read the Gospel of Mary Magdalene for the first time. In her writings, she speaks of a vision she had of Jesus. And when she went to Jesus to ask Him about it, they spoke intimately with one another. God, today I wonder, why do I feel so intimately connected to You, as Mary Magdalene was with Jesus? And when will Jesus visit me on earth again? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage in Chapter 9, verse 9:
“That is why He loved her more than us. Rather let us be ashamed and put on the perfect Man, and separate as He commanded and preach the gospel, not laying down any other rule or law beyond what the Savior said.”
—THE GOSPEL OF MARY
I am in love with Jesus of Nazareth. It is difficult to understand why, other than that I know of no other human to whom I feel more connected. I miss Him deeply, and I can only be here now as my modern, sassy, feminine self in 2016. I was brought here at this time in history to be modern, to fit the times, and to continue to go forth to proclaim and to preach. This is my joy. And this, I pray, is God’s joy, too. Amen.
