Know You More

Lord,

I turn my heart to you,

longing to know you as my friend, my brother.

Wash me thoroughly once again Lord,

cleanse me of my religion,

my disciplines, my practices,

the tools that I turn to

thinking I’ll be ok.

I desire to know you,

your heart, your thoughts, your ways,

your wisdom, your love, your passion, your devotion.

Open my eyes to look back on your kindness and faithfulness,

your merciful interventions into my life,

your always pursuit that carried me through

the valleys and the mountains.

Help me to remember your grace like air,

sustaining,

surrounding,

carrying me.

I lift my voice to thank you

that you’ve never let me go,

to praise you

for making me yours

bringing me into your kingdom of light,

my Lord who is

unchanging, holy, pure love, righteous, gentle, and true

yesterday, today, and forevermore.

Amen.
