20 Days of Prayer #10

A Prayer for Greater Devotion to God

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Deuteronomy 6:

Father, as we enter into 2020, we desire to have a greater devotion to you. 

Our true selves are very open in your sight. You know our failings, our intentional rebellions, and our slips and misses. You know when we sin without awareness that we were walking outside of your desires for our lives. 

As we enter a new year, would you give us a greater desire to draw closer to you … to your Word … to your Son … by your Spirit? Help us not be so distracted by the many things that call out for our attention and to be focused on you and your presence in every step. When we wake up, as we walk, and when we fall asleep, we know you are with us. We not only want our actions to align with your will, but we also want our hearts to align with yours. 

Fill us with a holy fire to be devoted to you every day. Thank you for hearing and moving on our behalf. Amen.
