God, help me know You are near!

In a world filled with people and things vying for your attention and affection we often don’t (or can’t) give our attention or affection to anyone or anything, and in the process we end up feeling alone and isolated. Today we want to tell you that God longs for intimacy with you. We are told in Scripture that if we earnestly seek after God that we will find Him (Dt 4:29) and that if we draw close to God that He draws close to us. In James 4:8 we read this, “Come close to God and he will come close to you.” We encourage you to take time to watch this video in which Kelly Carpenter sings his song, Draw Me Close.

 Draw me close to You

Never let me go

I lay it all down again

To hear You say that I’m Your friend


You are my desire

No one else will do

Cause nothing else can take Your place

To feel the warmth of Your embrace

Help me find the way

Bring me back to You


You’re all I want

You’re all I’ve ever needed

You’re all I want

Help me know You are near

Kelly Carpenter
