Pen to paper.
Writing out the prayers in my heart.
A mix of song, Scripture and heartfelt cries.
Setting my eyes on Jesus and opening my heart to Him.

You are Sovereign, Provider, my Sufficiency, my Rock and my Salvation. You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, Emmanuel, Mighty God, Alpha & Omega, Lover of my soul. You are my Shepherd and my God. You are my Guide.

You lead me in paths of righteousness. I am Your beloved. I rest in Your love. Wrap Your arms around me. Flood my soul with Your love. God, I love You and I long for more of You. You are so gracious to me. YOu have overwhelmed me with Your love, grace and mercy. Send Your glory, Lord, send it on down. Draw Your child to Yourself. Fill me, use me, mold me into Your likeness. I want to be like You. Hear my voice when I call Lord. Hear my prayer and be merciful to me. I am Yours.
The joy of the Lord is my strength The joy of the Lord is my strength. The JOY of the LORD is my STRENGTH. Holy Spirit, fill me. Saturate me. Overwhelm my heart. I can't be content with where I am at. I can't stay the same. I must draw closer to You. I must become more and more like You. I cry out for Your hand of mercy to heal me. I am weak and I need Your love to free me. O Lord, You are my Rock, my strength in weakness. Come rescue me O Lord. You are my hope. You are the only one I need. You are God and I will rest in You.

I want to love You. I want to love You. Let me know the way You love me. I love You. I love You. I am loved by You. I am loved by You. I am Your beloved. Your creation. And you love me as I am. You care for me. My every need You know. The breath I breathe, You have given me. My next heartbeat, You hold in Your hand. I am nothing without You. I desire only You. My heart longs for You. My eyes are set on You. I sit here in Your presence and rest in Your unchanging grace.
Show me Your heart. Show me Your ways. Show me You. One thing I ask of You, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon Your beauty and to see You in Your temple. I set my heart to seek Your face. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Why would I want anything less than You? There's nothing in this life to compare with Your love. Your love is better than life. Lord, You are worthy of all my praise.
Hear my prayer, Lord Jesus. El Shaddai.
