Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. –Psalm 91:1 NIV
An intimate prayer starts with intimacy with God. There might be some stretching involved, or the challenge of getting up a little early, but after you’ve had a taste of sweet intimacy with the Father, those extra winks of sleep weren’t lost. They were traded in for something better.
Today, instead of rushing into your day, take the time to ask the Holy Spirit to walk with you. Ask Him to go before you, to lead and guide you, to show you the way. As your day is ending, ask Him to come home with you and fill your house with His sweet delight.
Pray this prayer from your heart today, “Father, teach me about love. Teach me about sweet intimacy, that secret place with you. Teach me how to capture those moments without straining anything. Holy Spirit, walk with me today. Infuse Your life with mine. Anoint my mind, that we may have the mind of Christ. Anoint my eyes and ears that I would hear and see Your truth, that I would hear no other voice, nor be captivated by anyone but You. Thank you for leading me to Your secret place, today Father. Now, Lord, I pray that You would fill me up and send me out, that I may be Your light–a glorious reflection of You in this dark world. Father, I thank you and praise you. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.”
- Pray that God would quiet your mind and give you rest.
- Thank God for always being available to you.
