Prayer of Pursuit

Jesus, Redemption, Redeemer—

 

in You is my everything.

 

My failures defeated, my sin forgiven.

My fears calmed, my weakness strengthened.

 

My deaths turned into resurrection—

new beginnings, new dreams, new life.

 

Stir my heart, Lord Jesus, to pursue You

more deeply

more faithfully

more passionately.

I long to meet with You in the mornings

and hear Your voice clearly,

my heart spilling with praise.

 

I long to worship You in the evenings,

refreshed with Your truth,

closing my day with peace and prayer.

 

Help me see all around me Your

invitations to relationship,

to conversation and joy,

to impartations of life and hope and grace

from You to me

from me to the others

You place in my life.

 

I don’t want to miss You, my Lord,

for if I do, I will miss my life.

 

Thank You for

the goodness and mercy

that follow me

as I follow You.

 

Amen.
