Lord, please increase in me the desire for You above everything else, the desire to spend time with You. Give me the grace to be still with You today, even if just for 5-minutes at a time. I need this time, breathing in Your peaceful presence, so I can bring Your peace with me into each ordinary moment that will make up this day. It is in Your presence that the ordinary has the power to become extraordinary.
Root deeply within me the desire to discern and follow Your will each day of my life. Stir up in me a hunger to follow You more closely than ever before, so that quiet moments with You become an utter necessity for my survival, like food and water.
I thank you for Your everlasting love for me.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
“The Lord is in his holy temple. All the earth be quiet in his presence.” – Habakkuk 2:20
