Crying out for the Presence of God in your life. What is the deepest need you have? Is your life falling apart? Are you grieving loss? Do you need healing and transformation in your life? Are you imprisoned? Are you experiencing trauma? Yearning for the Presence of the Lord is spoken about in the Bible.
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the Light of Your presence, O Lord. Psalm 89:15
O Lord, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out to You. Psalm 88:1
Use your own words. Your words might be as simple as, "Hear me, come to me. I need you. Be with me." Your words might be silent and even without form. It is a matter of turning your attention to the Lord who loves you. You are a dearly loved child of God.
Are you troubled by your past? I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills His purpose for me. He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me; God sends His love and His Faithfulness. Psalm 57:2,3
What are your words? Help me. I can't stand this anymore.
