A Prayer to Draw Near to God
Busy days, a need for more time, and a deep desire for God. How can you draw near to Jesus with so much to do? Here is a prayer to help you begin to draw near to God.
Do you long to be near to God, but feel the demands of life seem to rob you of your time with the Lord? You’re not alone! But, there is an answer—and He will always make a way where there seems to be no way—especially when it comes to spending time with Him.
Drawing near to God is the key to unlocking every door that seems shut in your life. The rewards of drawing near far outweigh any sacrifice of time. Through the Holy Spirit, He is waiting to show you special insights into the problems that you face today. He wants to help you know and walk in perfect truth and strength. And, He wants to anoint your natural ability, so you can always be above and not beneath.
You can draw near to Jesus and enjoy the rewards of a life abiding in Him. Here is a prayer to draw near to God you can pray in faith:
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I thank You that You desire to spend time with me, and You have even called me Your friend. God, Your Word says if I draw near to You, You will draw near to me—and I want to be near to You. So, right now, in the Name of Jesus, I ask that You cause me to desire to draw near to You above everything else. Help me to have supernatural time-management abilities, help me to see clearly when I can set aside time to spend with You, and help me never to compromise that time.
Father, You said You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You. I know that to be diligent, I need to pursue You with passion and perseverance. Help me to put Your Word first in every decision I make, to pray continually throughout the day, and to look for opportunities to listen to teachings that will build my knowledge and understanding of who You are and what You want for my life.
I thank You that as I do these things, You will guide me into all truth, show me things to come, and anoint the works of my hands.
I praise You and thank You for these things.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
When you diligently seek the Lord with all your heart, and determine to draw near to Him, you will enjoy all the rewards of a life that abides in Him. Begin today to think of ways you can draw nearer still to Him. Then, enjoy your rewards!
