Grow me, Lord Jesus. Reveal to me the hidden mystery of love that abides in Your wounds. Draw me deeper into Your glorious presence until all the chaos of my daily world fades away. Your nearness is heaven to me, Lord. Your love has tantalized my appetite for more of You. I am not content with mere acquaintance, Lord. Let me have abiding love by revealing more of Yourself to me in relationship, resurrection power and grace. Increase the fullness of my faith as only You can. Extend my love from You toward others as it overflows from within my soul’s depths. Help me to be more intense in my pursuit of You, Lord Jesus, because You are so relentless in Your pursuit of me. Make me more aware of my nothingness so that I am stripped of all barriers to pride that would get between us. Let me forever long for more of You, Jesus, until I am with You forever in Kingdom glory. Under the mighty power of Your Word in 2 Peter 3:18 and the authority of Christ Jesus, King of glory, I humbly pray.
Grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be glory (honor, majesty, splendor),
both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
