Heavenly Father, my prayer today is simple.

I desire to be with you, now and forever.

That desire is decision.

I will do whatever is necessary to enjoy your presence.

Thank you for Christ’s sacrifice which makes it possible.

Thank you for the Spirit’s power who gives me strength.

Thank you for the Word which guides me to you.

Thank you for the church where I find love and encouragement.

Thank you for the sufferings which refine and mature me.

Thank you for your promise to be found by those who seek you.

Thank you for drawing near to those who draw near to you.

In your presence I praise you and ask one more thing:

That those who are not yet in your presence may find you.
