My Father in heaven who is worthy of all praise, I come before You in humble adoration. I have an intense longing for the deep repose that only You can give me, Lord. Longingly, I cry out to You for Your tender and abiding presence to overwhelm me. Lead me to the inner chambers of Your heart, Jesus, so that I can know You deeply. Teach me the secret of Your inmost love because only You can satisfy the deep desire of my heart. Holy Spirit, consume me with fiery love for You so that everything harmful within me, every disobedience and all unfaithfulness, is turned to ash that is blown away by Your abiding presence. Take me deeper into Your Kingdom purpose, Lord, where my soul ceases its striving and submits to Your sovereignty. Under the beauty of the word in John 15:9 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I whole-heartedly pray.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.
Abide in my love.
John 15:9, ESV
