You are Enough

Oh Jesus, I know you are here, but I feel so alone right now... so incredibly alone. I know Your Word says, "I am not alone, for the Father is with me" (John 16:32), but why can't I feel Your presence?! Lord, lead me to some scripture to where I will feel Your arms wrapped around me, and I will know You are by my side.
Maybe You are teaching me something greater than I am allowing myself to see right now. You know I struggle with confiding in earthly people instead of my Heavenly Father. Maybe You have brought me here, away from everything going on back home, so as to strip away everything to where I HAVE to completely rely on You and Your Word alone. Nothing else.
Purify my heart of all negative thoughts so that I may SEE YOU! I want nothing more than to see Your face shining through this darkness. "The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light." -Romans 13:12
Jesus, please allow Your Holy Spirit to break me from Satan's stronghold - I am not strong enough to do it on my own, I need Your help! Satan is trying to tear me down and fill my head with LIES about how You have deserted me. I refuse to believe the King of Lies! I REFUSE! Rid me of this darkness and fill me with Your light! I know you have promised us trials and tribulations here on earth, but I have been in this pit for long enough. This is my cry Oh Lord: "They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever." -Revelation 22:4-5
Dear Jesus, I am tired of being a "couch potato Christian." I desire to be used by You to bring glory and honor to Your name, for You are worthy of ALL praise. You deserve so much more than what my life has offered You thus far. Lord, I want my life to imitate Your ways and glorify Your sweet name. It's the least I can do for the One who gave EVERYTHING so that I may live. I am not called to live a "normal" life by the ways of this world, no, as a follower of Jesus Christ, I am called to be an alien of this world - someone who is not afraid to go down the narrow path of life. Oh Lord, in the midst of this darkness, make me a light for the nations, so that Your salvation may reach to the end of the earth (Isaiah 49:6).

Lord Jesus, You are ALL I NEED!

No one else could ever take Your place.

I love You with ALL that is within me.

I praise Your wondrous and Holy name.

You are enough.
