This is a touchy subject, and this might be a shorter post than usual. Don't look so happy.
When I say God, I mean the true God Who revealed Himself through His Word, His Word who became flesh and dwelt among us.
I have seen sinners scared nigh unto death by the idea of facing the true God.
I have known some sinners who, rather than face God, invented gods to replace Him.
Accept no substitutes, as no substitutes are acceptable.
So, the True God exists.
How do you approach Him?
Is there a candle to light, an action to be done such as raising hands, speaking certain incantations?
God must be approached with the reverence He deserves. If your heart is so soiled, your life such that you would not dare to seek God...
then you are where I once was.
I did not feel worthy to approach God.
In my own strength, my own will, my own soiled (un)righteousness, I am still not worthy.
But God Himself saved me, imputing to me the Righteousness of Christ, making it possible for me to approach Him.
Why would He do such a thing for someone so unrighteous?

only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have
17“For God did
not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be
saved through Him." John 3:16-17
Here is a blessing for you from God's own word:
14For this reason I bow my knees before the
15from whom every
family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
16that He would grant you, according to the riches of
His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
17so that Christ may dwell in
your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in
18may be able to
comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and
19and to know the love
of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the
fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19
