Spiritual Growth

Dear God: Today I feel a need to walk closer to You. I have this emptiness that I want You to fill. In James 4:8 I read: "Come near to God, and He will come near to you." So this day, I will seek to draw near to You through prayer and Bible study. Help me set aside some time each day to be alone with You. Allow Your Holy Spirit to direct my thoughts. I want to know Your will and way for my life. I want to know You better.

Your Word, in Ps. 145:18, tells me, "The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth." Lord, let me experience the deeper manifestation of Your divine presence in my life (Read John 7:37, 38).
In Jesus' name. Amen!
