Draw Me

Lord,

hold my heart,

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.

through to every crevice of my heart,

I invite you,

your presence,

your Spirit,

your ways,

to lead and guide me.

my life, my ways

His Goodness

Abba,

I repent of the lie

I’ve believed —

that you are not all good.

How deeply this lie has rooted in me,

since childhood the enemy’s only deceived,

and kept me in unbelief.

Thank you for exposing the lie,

for the years you’ve proven your love to me

… again and again.

and I surrender once more,

my will, my independence,

my desire to defend, avenge,

take ahold of my own life,

and I give it to you.

You know me,

you love me,

and I praise you for your love,

your protection and kindness.

The devil’s a liar,

and I know,

you are so good.

I bless you Abba.

Amen.

All Is Given

Abba,

thank you that all that I am,

all that I have,

is from you.

My being, my soul,

my breath, my body,

living, moving, active,

my needs met,

my wants in you satisfied,

everything is from you,

sustained through you,

and is for you.

I praise you for you’ve held nothing back,

all that is yours you have given me,

your precious Son,

your open heart,

all the cattle upon the hill,

blessings upon blessings

I have only yet to fathom.

Let me doubt no more

in who I am,

your beloved child,

and in who you are,

my good, good Father,

and I will never lack

for I am yours.

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.

Faithful Witness

Lord,

I pray for a soft heart,

a humble, teachable spirit,

true humility,

eyes to see,

ears to hear

through your Spirit.

Help me to walk with you,

in the rhythm of your heartbeat,

guided by your Spirit,

and illuminate the path before me,

every step,

every choice,

with your Word,

building a life

of righteous choices,

moral integrity,

goodness, faith, and loving kindness,

to leave a legacy

of your Name and glory.

Let me be a faithful witness

of my beautiful Lord.

You alone are worthy!

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.

Let Me…

Lord,

Let me…

be wise,

and trust your Spirit,

your Word,

leading and guiding me into all truth⁠—

peaceable, full of light,

gentle, sincere,

considerate, and merciful.

Let me…

trust your heart

for you are good,

generous, and kind.

You are tender and caring,

knowing every hair on my head,

your thoughts outnumbering

all the grains of sand on the seashore.

Let me…

be at rest,

knowing my life is in your hands

working all things for my good,

for you glory.

Let me never stop praising you… always!

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Love of God

LORD,

pour your grace upon me

to love you more.

Spirit, put the love you have for my Lord,

Lord, the love you have for the Father,

Father, the love you have for your Son,

within my heart.

Reveal to me,

grant me favor to understand,

this perfect fellowship of love,

gazing upon the beauty,

holiness, and light of your presence.

I praise you for the glimpses I see,

the tastes of eternity you gift,

in loved ones, close friends,

gathered around a meal,

the fellowship of sister and brothers

in your Spirit, worshipping and loving you.

I pray for more,

that your love would abound still more and more,

and the world see you

through the love we have for one another.

Let it be so,

let your Name be praised.

Amen.

Following Him

Lord,

Thank you for your grace,

for eyes to see,

your presence going before me,

following in your footsteps,

leading me on a journey

that I know

leads only straight into your heart,

though the rest is still a mystery.

I let go of my crutches —

my expectations, assumptions,

my carefully laid plans and controls,

and embrace hope in faith,

trusting you in this adventure.

You’ve called me out of my old life

into a relationship with you,

and I can’t wait to run with my Beloved,

forgetting what is behind,

pressing on towards what lies ahead,

my heavenly reward

in You.

Amen.
