“Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”” (John 12:31–32, NIV84)
“But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”” (John 6:36–40, NIV84)
As you ask for My Presence to enter into you today in this deep stillness, a layer of Peace is being formed within you so that the irritations and frustrations of the day cannot get through to hurt your spirit. Let yourself be drawn into Me, and then ask for My Will to be done in others. As their names or needs float into your mind let them not be an intrusion but an instant effortless lifting of their spirits to Me. Draw them into Me – not yourself! Much more is accomplished through this kind of prayer than you can imagine.
