Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer to Know the Fullness of God’s Love

How great is Your Love! It reaches to the highest heavens and it flows like a giant waterfall into the lowest valleys of our hearts. We cannot grasp its height, or width, or depth, but I want to Lord. I want to know the fullness of Your love. Thank You for giving me a glimpse. Even a glimpse is almost too glorious to fathom.

I ask that You touch those who are hurting today — touch them and make them whole once again. Many lives lay shattered among broken dreams. That’s a frightening place to b

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer When You’re Clinging to The Cross

Thank You for Your abiding presence. I don’t know what I would do without You, Lord. When I am overwhelmed, I find myself clinging to You. When I am afraid, I run to You and find safety. When I have no peace, I remember that You Yourself, are my peace, and You open my eyes to see You.

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer to See and Know His Glory

Lord, I give You praise, for You alone are worthy of all praise. The heavens and earth declare Your glory — and so do I. You are magnificent. Wonderful. And holy.

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer to Step Into the Light of Grace

Lord, I want to step into the light of grace where shadows fall away and all that is before me is the glory of Your Presence.

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer to Cease Striving and Know He is God

Lord, I’m so tense. Everything feels balled up in a tight knot — it’s awful! I feel like the gerbil racing inside her wheel running incessantly trying to avoid an internal explosion.

You keep speaking to me about striving…

I want to step out of the boat and walk toward You, but the waves are slapping against me. The sky is dark and threatening, and the wind howls at me with its taunts and mockery. And rather than being courageous and full of faith, I want to cover my eyes and weep and make it all go away.

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer to Know The Holy One

Lord, You are the Holy One, the Almighty God, who sanctifies us … You have called us to be holy, just as You are holy, not in and of ourselves, but through the precious blood of Jesus — the Lord our Righteousness …

But then life happens and it becomes hard to be holy as You are holy and we fail You miserably Lord. Please forgive us. Please help us realize this “becoming holy as You are holy” is a journey, a process … a hard fought battle between flesh and spirit.

Finding God’s Presence ~ A Prayer When Words Are Not Enough to Express My Praise

… But then You meet me in the quiet place and my soul begins to awaken to Your Spirit. A song rises within, sometimes through tears, sometimes with rejoicing, but always through thankfulness. I am blessed by Your sweet communion and I believe You are too. Is that when my praise speaks most clearly of my adoration for You? Is it in the quiet place — just You and me away from the hoopla of a frenzied life — that my heart beats with Yours? …
