Pithy Prayer June 5th, 2018

Heavenly Father, ever near with your loving presence, please bless me with a deeper and more personal knowledge and experience of you in my life. Until the day I can see You face to face in heaven, please draw me closer and closer to you. Thank you that the Holy spirit intercedes for me while I pray. Thank you that I don’t have to articulate prayers to be heard. I come to you as your child, your humble servant who longs to live for you and praise you with all of my life.

Thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit who keeps my hope alive and fills me with a sense of your loving presence. May my life today and everyday display my confidence in your love by sharing your kindness with others.

Father, thank you for the confidence I have in Jesus! I know that whether I live till Jesus comes or if I were to die this day, I can have confidence that my future is with you because it is tied to Jesus’ victory over death. Thank you for giving me a home with you as my ultimate future.

Please open my mind and heart to know you better through the presence of Your Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Your Presence

Your Presence

As I go through the day, morning or night
I am aware of your presence.
If I allow you to guide,
I have peace–I have your protection

I am learning as I go through this journey of life
My feelings are not always right
That is when I need to remember the past
Your presence that I felt when I prayed, and I asked

Your presence and help is always on time
Yet it happens again and again
When chaos comes as it always does
I worry, I whine and I fuss

I know the way is to learn how to trust
Your presence is reason enough
Lord, help me always to be aware
Your presence is always there

Comments on Your Presence
My prayer everyday is that I never lose that intimacy with the Lord that comes with being aware of his presence. My overwhelming longing is to have that awareness no matter where I am or what I am doing.

He has made his presence known to me in so many ways, but the one time when I was touched, the ecstasy I felt was like a foretaste of the future that awaits me living with my creator and savior for eternity.

The daily fellowship and prayer is the one thing necessary in my life that helps me through the trials of living this life, in this decaying body, in this decaying world. I have felt his love, I have felt his presence and nothing that this world throws at me can destroy the faith and the love that it produced.

God’s presence above all brings me great joy and trust. I can stand firm through trials and testings knowing that no matter what happens he is in control. He is for me, He loves me. If I fail like I do so often, he is there picking me up, holding my hand.

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore
PsalmĀ 16:11
