God is a spirit and those that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The goal of every believer is to get intimate with God and develop that intimacy over time. However, God does not force us or coerce us into drawing closer to him. It's just like a gentleman opening the door to his car for a lady. She either chooses to enter the car or not. God is like that gentleman. He has stretched out his arms wide open and it is left to us to decide if we want in or out.
God will never break into your life. If you want him, you should be willing to ask him in. Invite him. Let him be a special guest, a permanent guest. Intimacy, however cannot be experienced in the flesh. It is spiritual.
In this article, we will be dropping the best prayers that can help you develop and maintain intimacy with God.
Father, I need Your involvement in every detail of my life. I’m lonely without you, adrift on a sea of indecision, going nowhere. I choose today to come near to you, to talk with you as a good friend, to share my heart, my desires, my remorse, and my pain. To hear you say, “You are forgiven, my child.” I hereby promise to seek you with everything that I am, and I audaciously receive the promise of your Word that you will not remain a mystery to me, but that I will find what my heart has been searching for all along: A Father who adores me, a Savior who suffered for me, and a Spirit who will never forsake me. Amen
This prayer alone shows that you realize how much you are nothing without God and how so much you desire intimacy with him.
God, be Lord of my life today. Have total and complete control of me and my life. Take my heart for Your own.
