Prayer #1

This is my prayer, Lord: that You reveal the secret petitions of my heart so that I'll know what I desire.

Let my heart yearn for communion with You, to such a degree that men, career, friends, and finances take a backseat. I want to turn to You first with happy news, aches and pains, and emotional woes and complaints. I want Your advice, to hear Your voice telling me, "This is the way." Please help me to follow You, to discern Your will. Don't let me be deceived back into the old comfort zone. Let me ask with authority for things I long for, and I will rely on You to take care of everything.

This is my prayer, Lord: that I love You first and foremost, that You bless me in that.
