A Prayer to Know God Better and Love Him More
O God, you are my God. Help me to seek you earnestly. Please give me a spirit of wisdom and revelation so I may know you better. Cause me to be filled with the knowledge of your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so I can walk in a manner worthy of you, fully pleasing to you, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in my knowledge of you. Help me to recognize that knowing Christ Jesus as my Lord surpasses all other things in life. Thank you, Lord, for pouring your love into my heart through the Holy Spirit. Help me to respond by loving you with all of my heart and with all of my soul and with all of my mind. Enable me to comprehend the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that I may be filled with all of your fullness. Lord, your steadfast love is better than life. Help me to praise you for this as long as I live. May my soul be satisfied in you.
In Jesus’ name,
