Prayer For The Knowledge Of God

Heavenly Father, I am fearfully and wonderfully made and when I read that You know the very thoughts of my heart before I even think of them,, that You knew all about me when I was in my mother’s womb and that You have scheduled every day of my life – it fills me with awe and wonder at Who You are. I am bewildered and yet humbled to know that the God of the universe should send His only begotten Son to die for me at Calvary.
 
Lord I long for a greater knowledge of You.. a growing understanding of Who You are and a closer relationship with You.. and so I pray that in Your grace and mercy You will give me an ever deepening knowledge of You, and  a purer understanding of Your gracious ways and holy character.
 
Teach me how to live as You would have me live.. and may all I say and do be done as unto the Lord – to Your praise and glory. Use me in what ever way You choose and I pray that  Christ may be seen in me. It was John the Baptist that said: “I must decrease and He must increase,” and I pray that will be the experience in my life – until Christ is all in all,
 
Amen
