We are in a season of responding to the Lord who has called us to return to our first love. Here is a prayer from Brian Simmons to help us express the desire of our hearts to the Lord.
O God-Enthroned in heaven, I worship and adore you! (Psalm 123:1)
God, you are enthroned upon my heart. I’m consumed with desire—a longing to touch what is unseen, yet real. So incredibly real. You are the profound truth that guides me and purifies my motives. You absorb my failings and grant me unending mercy. You are love.
When you speak, my heart comes alive. When you whisper, my soul finds peace. You are the breath that pushes me forward. The grace I discover each day.
There’s a fire burning deep within, ignited by your touch. I want to know you. To honor you. To please you with a life of unrelenting devotion. I want to discover the secrets that you’ve hidden for me to find. I want to be pure in heart. I want to see you. This beating in my chest tells me it’s not too late. You are imminent. You are near.
