Prayer to Grow Closer to God

by Bob (Clearfield, Utah)

My true Father, God,

I thank you for everything that you do for me. I know I deserve what I’m going through, but I’ve learned so many things and have grown closer to you which makes it all worth while. I can’t survive without you, I do feel more closer, but I am still confused as I try to seek you.

Please help me find my way. Forgive me for my sins. I want to change and live/be happy again. Bless my Family and friends, protect me from my enemies within. I want to be free and full of peace and love. I want to fix the mistakes I can; following the world was my biggest mistake but you saved me. Please give me the strength and guidance, along with the right opportunities to release me from my current trial. I cannot take anymore. I pray in Jesus name I never make the same mistakes ever.

I know for all those in need; God will give me the strength and peace of mind to deal with all my needs. I ask him with love and persistence. Jesus Himself said we are to ask, seek, and knock at the door for what we need in prayer (Matt. 7:7; Luke 11:9). I continue to pray, and I also know that Perseverance and patience go a long way in our prayer lives and in getting closer to our Lord!
Thank you for hearing me and keeping me in good health.
Give me strength to go on.
Romans chpt;4
7 Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight.
8 Yes, what joy for those whose sin is no longer counted against them by the Lord
