My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Intimacy
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Lord, I want to know You more, not just with my head, but intimately, in the depths of my spirit. I desire to live in You, abide in You, be fruitful in You, and have the fullness of Your joy as my portion. I have tasted of Your delights and know that You are good, help me now to feast with You at Your table. Help me draw near, to drink of Your Spirit, to delight in Your will, to walk in Your steps, to be in agreement with Your will, to take Your yoke fully upon me, and to learn of You.
I ask You to take me closer to Your heart—I want to know
more deeply what it means to love You; I want to know more fully what it means
to experience the pleasure Your company; I want to know more completely what it
means to serve You as a faithful servant.
Lord, through my vision, help to see more clearly the things
that You see through Your eyes; through my thoughts, help me to understand the
things that You know in Your wisdom; through my tongue, help me to speak the
words that are upon Your lips. By Your grace, I want to know the power of Your
cross, the fellowship of Your suffering, the triumphs of Your victory, and the
glory of a life that is seated with You at the Father’s right hand.
I ask You to make me more aware of the things that You
celebrate and bring You pleasure. I want to do those things that cause You to
say “I am pleased”; I want to follow the path that causes Your face to shine
upon me; I want to do the work that has Your approval; I want to make the
choices that will result in hearing Your “Well done.”
