Gracious Lord, there is none like you, who created all and is over all, yet, you desire to have direct and intimate communication with us. You want to know every detail of our lives. Take the everyday annoyances from us as we seek your face and experience your presence. The little buggy things that creep in to distract us and make us uncomfortable, remove those and their effect from us, Lord. Let us concentrate fully on your beauty and majesty. Let us submit totally to your will and your everlasting, covenantal plan for us. You work constantly for our greater good and your glory. We love you and praise you for first loving us. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to the good and prefect will of the Father. Amen.

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 ESV)
