Prayer of Approach: Fill Us

Here’s a prayer of approach from Rev. Richard J. Fairchild’s Kir-shalom website.

Prayer of Approach
(inspired by  John 6)

Most gracious and loving God,
we have tasted your goodness in days gone by and it has satisfied us,
but now with this new day we turn to you again
for the bread of life that you have prepared for us
and for the wine of the Spirit that you pour out for your people. 

Help us Lord, to empty ourselves
of those things that hinder us from knowing the fullness of your love
and fill us with those things that tend to make us all that you want us to be. 
We need your presence Lord. 
We need your anointing. 
Touch us, we pray, and make us whole. 
We ask it through Christ Jesus your Son. Amen
