I praise you father, for you have given me peace, a new life, a new hope, a new purpose. Please burn within me a desire to always obey you, to always seek you with all my heart. Please don’t allow my heart to ever be content with “just ok”. How easy it is for anyone to lose sight of you. How easy it is to forget how amazing you are. Humans are dumb sometimes. Father we need your grace to keep drawing our hearts to you. Thank you father for teaching me to recognize all the ways that you participate in my life, in our lives. Thank you for teaching me your heart. Thank you for preparing me to grow up even more in you. I want your will for my life. I want your spirit to impregnate all of my life, my kids, my home, my friends, my family. When we invite you into our lives you are so good that you want to touch every aspect of our lives. You care about us. You are so good to us, we just have been blinded by Satan, by the deception of the carnal man who is dead to you yet still attempts to direct our lives through its evil desires. I understand that you only want people who will truly love and appreciate you. This is why you expect us to draw close to you, this is why you say that when we seek you with all our hearts we will find you. However, it is only by your grace that we even think about you, that we are even mindful of you. Thank you for forgiving our evil hearts. You say taste and see that you are good, so you give us discontentment with the natural order of things apart from you, so that we will seek someone so much better. I want all of you, thank you for choosing me and for calling me. Anyone who doesn’t heed your beckoning to come away with you is a fool. Only father I ask that you will open their eyes let them see through the fog of deception and see past the lying spirit who is telling them that his way is enough. Let them be smart enough to see the truth and to reach for you, to draw close to you, to have an affair with you. Because you father are the most perfect lover for our souls. Your word says that you are like a treasure hidden in a field that the person who finds you would go and sell all they possess in order to own that field so that they can have you. There is no better way, there is no better God to serve. Let them smell the stench of fake. Thank you father for this is the day that you have made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Amen.
