Dear Lord,

I want to experience Your presence. Be bowled over by Your love. Grow closer to You in unanticipated ways. Encounter You in surprising places. See You do things I can only dream about.

Help me look beyond what I see at first glance – so I can clearly see what You are doing. Help me see possibilities where I only see pain – so I can be overwhelmed with hope. Help me love You with every bit of my being – so I can return just a fraction of the grace with which You shower me.

I pray all of this for one simple reason – I want to be ‘all in’ for You.

In Jesus’ name – Amen.
