The Prayer Of My Heart Today

Lord Jesus I come before You with heart bowed and head hung reverence.
I praise You Jesus for making yourself real to me once again.
For taking me back one more time.
I don't deserve Your grace and mercy but I am so grateful that You chose to give them to me.
Thank You...Thank You.
I truly do love You Lord even though at times I stray.
Thank You for Your forgiveness...for mercy one more time.
Oh Lord I ask that you be my strength today...the never failing strength of my heart.
Heal the wounds that I carry in my my my body.
Draw me ever closer to You Lord.
You be the One to quench my fill my satisfy my every need.
Draw me in.  Fill me up.  Soothe my soul.
Forgive any sins that I have thought or in deed.
Lord help me to be the person you want me to be...the child of God I long to be.
Search my heart Lord...clear my thoughts of any thing that isn't of You.
Help me Lord to be more like You everyday in this life You have given me.
Help me to be a blessing to others.
I long to be what You want me to be.
I long to be more like You.
More of You and less of me is what I want people to see in me.
Thank You Lord for putting people in my life that are ever close to You.
Ones that help me in this journey called life when I can't seem to make it on my own.
To help me right my feet on Your path once again.
To steady me so I can find my way with and in You once again.
Let me be a help to them.
Help me to be able to show Your love.
To be a help to them in their storms like they are in mine.
Lord I praise You...I thank You...for being my Savior.
For never turning Your back on me even though I seem to turn from You at times.
Thank You...Thank You...Thank You for my life in You.
In Your precious holy name Jesus I pray all of this.

"until we see JESUS...face to face"

Tonight I'm just sitting having a cup of peppermint tea and listening to some great music.
Just A Closer Walk With Thee is one of my favorite songs.  I always say how I want that more than anything...and I do.  This song just reminds me how much.  And like the song says...daily walking close to Thee...that is exactly what I/we have to do.  It's a choice like everything else in life.  I fall...I get up.  How?  Jesus reaches out His hand...takes mine...takes yours...and helps me up...helps me to take one more faith in Him. 

Tonight sitting in my room...surrounded by music...I feel Him close. Too many times I wander yet He always...always...always...reaches out and pulls me back to Him.  But God.  Without Him...I don't know what I would do.  He constantly shows to me...His amazing grace.  What would I/we do without His grace?  Tonight I. Am.Thankful.

Colossians 2:6-7 NLT

And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him.
Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him.
Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
