Prayer to get closer to God

Relationships are about time and commitment. When these things are present, the bonds grow deeper. To get closer to God, it means you trust in his plans and processes.

If you feel far from God, make the decision to get closer. Devote time to an authentic conversation with him in prayer. Listen to what he has to say in the Holy Scriptures.

As you get to know God more, you will feel his closeness. You will feel his loving grace.

Remember, our heavenly Father is always seeking to get closer to you. He sent his Son Jesus specifically for this purpose.

And once you get closer, make the next move. Let your heart be open to get closer to others and share the love of the Lord.

Audio message and prayer from Vincent:

Please support this site.

But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.

Luke 10:33-34

So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.

Luke 15:20

PRAYER TO GET CLOSER TO GOD

O merciful Lord,

I’m feeling lonely & distant. I want to get closer to you, but it’s hard for me. Please help me, O Lord.

Let me not be afraid to look inside. You see and love me, as I am. I am a child of God.

Give me the confidence that you come for me to heal me and set me free. There is nothing to fear in your merciful love.

Draw me closer, O Lord, in your Word & loving grace. Let me come to you and rest. Let me give up all my weariness and shame into the wounds of Christ.

I open myself up to you. In my weakness you make me strong. In trusting you, you enter my heart. And I am never alone.

In the name of Jesus I pray,

Amen.

  1. Im feeling lost, I haven’t been in the word of the lord in what seems like forever. I’ve lost my ways of good and no longer feel like I’m worthy of his blessings. I just wanna be at peace with my self and know he is listening to me. I wanna change and get my life on track not just for me but for my family and loved ones.

    • Dear Michael,
      Since you know God’s Word, I know you know this, but it’s worth remembering. You don’t have to be worthy of his blessings. His love and mercy are free for us. Jesus paid the price already. So when you go to him, just ask for what is truly good for you. And he will listen and deliver. It’s not because we can do anything. God does it because he is good.
      So ask for healing and joy… in the name of his GOODNESS. Don’t be ashamed or afraid. God loves it when we go to him and say, “Lord, I messed up. But I know you are good and merciful. Please forgive me. Help me. Heal me. I need your love.”
      Just talk to him. Sincerely. Openly. And the heavens will open up for you.
      Please keep in touch here. Let us know how you are doing.
      I am and will be praying for you!
      Vincent
