If you want Intimacy With Jesus, pray a prayer like this, in your own words, or use mine. Almighty God. Heavenly Father. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus. He paid for my life with His Blood. He defeated the devil for me and saved me from the clutches of hell. Thank You for giving me the "free will" to choose Jesus as my Lord. I bow my knee before Your Son and I say: "Come, Lord Jesus, be my Lord. Live Your life through me. Use me for Your glory. I surrender everything to You. Let me know You intimately. Amen."
Had I not met God on a personal “face to face” basis, I wouldn’t be here right now. I would have taken the proverbial pistol and put the proverbial bullet through my mouth and out the back of my head, splattering brain cells all over the wall behind me. That’s how my step-father did it. His father before him put a shotgun butt on the ground, slipped his big toe through the trigger and pulled. His brain cells scattered throughout the barn.
But God knew me. He knew what I needed and that was for Him to show up. In a split second, I went from ground-zero depression to sky-high enthusiasm because He not only knew my name, He knew everything about me—and He loved me anyway! He loved me passionately. My birth dad disappeared before I was born; my step-dad raped me between the ages of eight and seventeen. My mother’s love was completely conditional on how much I did for her. I’d never known anybody who was excited about knowing me, and that turned my life upside down!
That’s why today I eagerly introduce people to Jesus Christ and encourage them to enjoy the kind of relationship I have. God Almighty is my Daddy. Jesus is my Lover and Lord. The Holy Spirit is my Best Friend. This three-in-one God I love wants to be like that for everyone. Remember, God is so big, so huge, that if all seven billion of us were to pray at the same time, in the over 150 languages we speak, He would hear us all and answer at the same time with the languages we spoke. He has more than enough room to be as cozy with you and with the seven billion others at the same time.
My ministry is about Knowing God Personally, and to do that I must divulge to all of you who are reading, the secrets of my life—to show you how my very personal God works with me, loves me, and helps me because He knows me and He wants me to know Him. Read the prayer in Ephesians 1:17–21. This is definitely a prayer for New Testament believers because it is prayed in the name of Jesus and targets the specific things we need in order to be a wildly successful Christian, which is our destiny—the power within us, wisdom, enlightenment, our inheritance, and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
Because my heart’s desire is for the world to know Him personally, to have intimacy with Jesus, I am offering to give you my pamphlets called “Who Is Jesus?” and “For The Children.” Go to Store on this website and download them as PDF files. They’re free. Absolutely free. May your relationship with God supersede any other thing in your life!
Keep coming back! I’ll take you on a journey to know God personally through my Bible Snacks and especially through my Blog: Intimacy Personified. He’s all you’ll ever need!
I love you,

The kind of giving that pleases God are the gifts given in joy. Ask Him what He wants you to give and then give it with hilarity (that’s a Biblical term). His promise of abun- dance is attached to your obedient, joyful giving. The amount of joy the Lord wants us to live in is full of glory!
7) So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful (hilarious) giver. 8) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:7, 8)
