Merciful Father, Your love is abundant and Your grace is more than sufficient for me. Yet, Lord, I find myself yearning for more of You. I have tasted of Your goodness, experienced Your unfailing love, and I long to draw closer to You. I pray, dear God, that You will increase my hunger for You.

A Prayer For Discernment
Loving Father, there are many voices clamoring for my attention, and it’s easy to get lost in the noise. I need Your wisdom and discernment to prioritize my spiritual needs. Help me to separate the important from the trivial, the sacred from the secular, and to focus on nurturing my relationship with You.
Grant me the wisdom to discern what feeds my soul and what depletes it. Help me to make wise choices that will foster my spiritual growth and deepen my hunger for You.

Help me to cultivate daily habits of prayer, reading Your Word, and quiet moments in Your presence. Give me the determination and discipline to pursue You with fervency and consistency.

I will be forever grateful, thankful and excited that I will know You more and more each day of my life until the day will come that I will see Your face closer and I will hug You tight and kiss You in reality.
Thank You Lord Jesus Christ, I am truly forever Yours and You are forever mine. I love You with all of my fighting heart and soul. Amen!
