“God, I know that I have sinned and that I don’t always deserve Your presence by my side, but the truth is that I repent of all my sins and I want to change. I want to change for the better, to be part of Your life and Your existence. I truly repent of my sins, I want to overcome them and for that I need Your presence.

That’s why I pray to You, that You come to me, right now, and that You bless me with Your strength and with Your miraculous hand.

Developing a closer relationship with God is not rocket science.

Some people have made this mysterious; however, it is as simple as ABC.

If you truly want to develop a closer relationship with God, then, this prayer is for you. 

Firstly, you can start by playing several music songs that speak of consecration, holiness, and so on.

While doing this, meditate on the lyrics of those songs until the consciousness of God wells up in your soul.

The next thing is to read some chapters of the bible. Finally, you can begin to say this prayer.

If you want your prayer to be accepted and effective, ensure you create enough time for it. This is not a quick prayer. It takes a lot of time because your focus is needed at this point. 

Whenever I feel disconnected from God I like to say this prayer and then finish with this very simple Bible verse:

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” — Romans 10:17.

3) Prayer for a deeper walk with God

“Father God, I want to show my gratitude through this prayer. First of all, my gratitude for hearing this prayer of mine, but not only.

I want to thank You for helping me, for protecting me, for being by my side and for never abandoning me, even when I choose the wrong path, the path of evil and darkness.

I repent of all my sins and want to change. I want the light of God to enter my heart and my life, I want to walk beside You. This is why I pray to You, to help me to walk beside You, with Your presence and always with Your light guiding my paths.

Father God, help me, assist me and never abandon me. I trust in You, in Your graces, in Your divine and merciful presence in my life. Amen.”

This prayer is not for everyone. It is for those who have a close walk with God but pursue a deeper walk with God. 

Those who say this prayer are obsessed with God, which is a good place to be. If that sounds like you, then, start saying this prayer right now. 

Don’t let anyone distract you or discourage you from pursuing a deeper walk with God.

When you reach that realm of walking with God, everything in the natural world begins to respond to you.

To make this prayer effective, I will recommend having prayer vigils at regular intervals. Midnight is the hour of prayer. It is also the season when angels meet men on earth. 

This is why saying this prayer at such a time will yield powerful results by stirring your heart and also inviting God to encounter you.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right path, for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me  all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Psalm 23 NIV

Have you been distracted by the things of the world? 

Well, this is the best time to pray. With these special words from the Bible, God will restore you. He will give you the Holy Spirit

The holy spirit will also inspire your heart and challenge you to make your pursuit of God a daily activity.

“Father, in the Name of Jesus, I thank You that You desire to spend time with me, and You have even called me Your friend. God, Your Word says if I draw near to You, You will draw near to me—and I want to be near to You. So, right now, in the Name of Jesus, I ask that You cause me to desire to draw near to You above everything else. Help me to have supernatural time-management abilities, help me to see clearly when I can set aside time to spend with You, and help me never to compromise that time.

Father, You said You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You. I know that to be diligent, I need to pursue You with passion and perseverance. Help me to put Your Word first in every decision I make, to pray continually throughout the day, and to look for opportunities to listen to teachings that will build my knowledge and understanding of who You are and what You want for my life.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”


This prayer is similar to the previous prayer. It is a prayer of reconnection and reconciliation.

Whenever you notice a disconnection between you and God, this is the best prayer to make.

The power of God is released through this prayer, which begins to stir you up to pray and fellowship with God much more.
