Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. There is none other commandment greater than this.
—-Mark 12:30 (King James Version)
Dearest Abba, Father, the fire is barely flickering. I don’t have same yearning for You as I had when I first came to know You. But this lukewarm attitude toward You makes me restless. I feel so disconnected. Help me, Yahweh, to recapture the passion that once burned so brightly. Prevent me from taking You for granted. Help me to spend time with You. Turn the moments I spend with You into moments of magical encounters of intensity and wonder. Help me to know You thoroughly. Because knowing You is the key for joy and happiness and all kind of blessings. Please resurrect my relationship with You, Elohim, reawaken my desire for You. Open my heart, Adonai, remove all obstacles my flesh places in the way of loving You completely. Open my mind, give me the wisdom to understand the foolishness of putting the things of this ever perishing world in front of You and turning away from such great love of Yours. Open my mouth, so that I can confess my wretchedness to You. Fill my mouth with the heavenly vocabulary so that I may express my adoration, gratitude, supplications to You using beautiful words that gladden Your heart. Open my ears and let me be still so that I can hear what You whisper to my soul. Give me the strength to be vulnerable so that I may surrender my all to You and depend on You for all my needs. Open my eyes to see the depth, height and breadth of Your everlasting love for me. In the sweet and loving name of Jesus Messiah, I pray. Amen.
