I am gathering My people,
the pure and blameless in My sight.
I am calling all who would
place Me first in their lives,
laying down their own selves,
to follow Me and Me alone.
These are the ones who speak of Me,
who are telling of My greatness
before the world.
All you who would step out in faith,
I need each one to do My work;
not ashamed of My Gospel,
but proclaiming it to a hungry world
needing to hear and to believe.
I desire the willing ones
to come forward boldly,
filled with My power to act.
This would I give to you.
Just as a father gives his own son
bread if he asks, so do I give
the Holy Spirit to those who ask.
"If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he
give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of
a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give
the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
