Close

Lord,

Draw me close,

keep me near,

give me a soft heart,

a listening ear,

so that I may hear your call,

know your voice,

and walk in your ways.

Silence all distractions,

quiet my mind,

still my soul,

that I may sense your presence

once more.

Your Spirit blows where it pleases,

let me move only with you,

please don’t let me go.

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.

Peace And Rest

Lord,

I quiet my heart,

still my thoughts,

open my spirit,

and wait,

with no expectation,

no presumption,

just longing to hear your voice,

to sense your presence,

be still in your love,

knowing you’re right here,

always, with me.

Your Spirit fills me,

cleanses my mind,

refreshes my heart,

and a breath escapes,

releasing my cares to you.

I praise you my Prince of Peace,

and I bless you

for inviting me into your rest.

Amen.
