He Meets Me

Lord,

I praise you for your call,

your counsel and guidance,

your purposes,

thank you that where you lead me,

you are already there.

You’ll meet me,

even as you’re with me,

and you’ll never leave me

nor forsake me,

so I will lean on you,

acknowledging you in all my ways,

for you make my paths straight.

Bless me to be a blessing,

reveal your love to me,

so I can love well,

and serve and give with a generous heart.

Most of all,

let me just walk right next to you,

every step of the way,

and enjoy your companionship,

delighting you,

rejoicing in your love,

all the days of my life.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Draw Me

Lord,

let me crave your love

more anything this world has to offer.

Draw me to you,

with no hesitation, no walls within me,

help me to run to you,

and enter into your depths of kindness and love.

Thank you for opening your heart,

embracing my shame and guilt first,

loving me into your hand,

granting me faith in your way.

I am dark but lovely,

and I’ve neglected my life,

yet you call and revive me,

you show me the path

to find myself

in your presence and with your people.

I praise you Lord for your love,

your forgiveness, restoration, and hope,

and I bless your Name.

Amen.

Word Of God

Lord,

grant me a hunger and thirst for your Word,

let me read, peer in,

Spirit, lead me and guide me into all Truth,

increase the spirit of wisdom and revelation upon me,

to see you clearly and rightly—

to know your heart,

your personality,

your thoughts,

your character,

your eyes of fire,

your hair as white as wool,

your outline, your shape,

your life and death,

your eternal presence going before me,

a window into God’s heart.

Be pleased to reveal yourself to me,

that I may offer pure delight and worship unto you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

God’s Face

God,

I praise you for your Son,

Lamb of God,

who came to take away the sins of the world.

I thank you for cleansing me of all my sins,

and for tabernacling within me,

making the way to see your beautiful face.

In faith I receive your Son,

I believe all that He has done,

dying for my sins,

taking my punishment upon His frame,

resurrecting into overcoming life,

giving life abundant and eternal,

and I bless you for your mercy,

your lovingkindness and goodness.

I eat of the Bread,

thank you that you desire relationship with me,

drawing me to your table,

enjoying sweet fellowship,

intimacy with you.

As I set my heart, my mind, my way upon you,

looking upon the kindness, tenderness, and compassion

of your holy Face,

let your face shine upon me,

be gracious to me,

let the light of your countenance be upon me,

and grant me your peace.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

In Your Presence

Father,

let me never leave this place

of being loved, cherished by you,

seen to the core of my heart,

accepted unconditionally,

attended to,

cared for,

with tender mercies

and pure grace.

Thank you for bringing me here

through sin, brokenness, and loss.

I never could have come alone,

I never would have known,

that such a love existed,

if you hadn’t drawn me,

put the cry in my heart,

and gathered me to you.

Protect me,

don’t let me be deceived and distracted,

by other lovers and shiny things.

Put your love in my heart

that I may adore you all of my days,

this was what I was made for,

and life feels right,

makes sense here…

in your presence.

I love you God.

Amen.

My Rest

Lord,

I have everything I need in you.

You sustain my heart,

refresh my soul,

keep me in perfect peace,

as my thoughts alight on you.

You are rest,

and I enter your presence,

grateful for your blood

that has washed away all my sin,

and speaks a better word

over every accusation,

judgement, and condemnation.

You are my refuge

and my tower of strength.

There’s no other place I’d rather be,

I praise you.

Amen.

Known And Blessed

Lord,

I’m astounded by your care,

you’ve numbered every hair on my head,

you’ve sewn every stitch of my soul,

every word in my mouth,

movement of my heart,

you already know.

You watch me with care,

my lying down, going out,

my habits, quirks, and ways,

better than I know myself.

You understand and intimately know me.

I can rest,

trusting your guidance and counsel

is perfect for me,

as you hem me in from behind,

and go before me.

Lord, grant me a pure heart,

renew a right spirit within me,

remove anything in me that hinders your love,

please lead me in the way everlasting.

I praise you and thank you,

Lord of my life.

Amen.

Yours Alone Lord

Lord,

Keep me soft,

keep me tender,

sensitive to your Spirit,

open to your whispers,

enthralled by your words,

in love with your presence,

humble to your counsels,

faithful to your commands

persevering in obedience,

bold when you call,

standing firm in your truth,

wise and shrewd as a snake,

loving right, loving well

all the days of my life.

Shine your light through me Lord,

and be glorified.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Sweet Intimacy

Lord,

thank you for drawing up the emptiness,

exposing the loneliness,

showing me the depths of my heart

that only you are meant to fill.

I praise you that you’d draw me close,

close as a friend,

away into your chambers,

intimate as a bridegroom,

and I receive you Lord

inviting your presence,

fill me with your Spirit,

dwell within me.

Draw me close,

hold me near,

help me to follow where you call.

Let me not resist,

hold back, hesitate,

but grab hold of your hand,

and be with you,

as close as you would let me be.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Cherish The Lord

Lord,

I praise you,

you are the Aleph and the Tav,

the beginning and the end,

uncreated One,

who was and is and is to come.

I bless you Lord

for being the author and perfecter of my faith,

cherishing my eternal soul,

knowing how to guide this wayward free will

back to you,

time and again.

I ask you for the fear of the Lord,

the spirit of wisdom, knowledge,

understanding, discernment, and insight,

counsel, and might to know you

and walk in your ways.

Please don’t let me go,

take me deeper into your love,

let me never tire of gazing into your holy Mystery,

and help me to be faithful,

trusting in you to the end.

I love you Lord.

Amen.
