Prayer to Draw Closer to God

Prayer to Draw Closer to God

Loving Father, I praise you because you are the Almighty God full of mighty power and there is none like you.

You are the Creator and sustain every living creature in the world.

You created each of us to worship and be in communion with you daily.

My heart longs to dwell in your presence every day because that is where your joy is.  

Your word says if I draw closer to you, you will draw closer to me (James 4:8).

Today I draw closer to you through prayer and I ask you to help me experience you in a special way.

When I spend time with you, I feel refreshed and ready to face the chores of the day. My spirit feels light and trusts in you to take care of me every day.

Refresh me that I may be a fountain of living water that others can draw water from when they encounter me.

I want to bless others with the comfort you give me and the hope you fill me with as I seek your face.

Let me never tire of drawing closer to you because you are my God and my helper.

May the daily desire of my heart be spending time with you so I can get to know you.

Saturate my heart with your love which I can share with others around me.

It is when you pour out your love in my heart that it will overflow even to those whom I consider unlovable.

You have commanded me to love others and I can only do this when I am connected to you, the true vine. I will meditate on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 that teaches me how to love others.

You are my refuge and my fortress and I put all my trust in you. The more I know you, the more I want to surrender to you.

You fill my heart with gladness and I can look forward to better days.

I’m glad because you have made your glory rise over me and have crowned me with your goodness.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
