The Lord is close to those who pray to Him; to all who truly pray to Him.  Psalm 145:18
Dear Father in Heaven,  Talking with You is my greatest privilege.  The intimacy that comes from communicating with You is holy and protective.  It’s not what I know- but Who I know that matters.  When others have to deal with You on my behalf the game changes in 180 degree fashion.  If I was ever to be close to someone, Father, my desire would be for You. In Jesus’ alluring name, I pray.  Amen.
