5 In Faith

A Prayer

God, I must have more of You.
I long for an encounter with You, the Living God.
For only You can
satisfy my thirsty soul. 
Lord, I give you permission. Do whatever it takes.

There is nothing or no one more desiring of my affection than You.

Lord, cleanse me.
Strip me of everything that is not of You.
Purify my heart so that I may walk with You.
I want to experience Your touch, Your love, Your joy!

God, I must know Your heart.
I want to lean into You.
Keep me focused on You and what You’re doing.
Open my eyes so that I might see.
Open my ears so that I might hear.
I want to see Your beauty in all things.

Lord, I must have You.
Consume me to my very core.  
Invade my life, shift my priorities.
Satisfy the longings of my heart.

God, show me what I was created for.
I was created to love you. Yes, and this is enough.
Yet I ask, what would you have me to do here on this earth?
Lord, unlock my creativity.
You are a creative God.
You desire to move through me.  
Release Your creative anointing in me. 

God, my soul longs for You.
My soul yearns for You.
I must have more.
Consume me. 


Lord, Set my heart on fire for You.
I long to encounter You that I might be changed.
I long to experience Your love.
