Prayers Ancient and Modern 04/17

Come, O Lord, in much mercy down into my soul, and take possession and dwell there. A homely mansion, 1 confess, for so glorious a Majesty, but such as Thou art fitting up for the reception of Thee, by holy and fervent desires of Thine own inspiring. Enter then, and adorn, and make it such as Thou canst inhabit, since it is the work of Thy hands. Give me Thine own self, without which, though Thou shouldst give me all that ever Thou hast made, yet could not my desires be satisfied. Let my soul ever seek Thee, and let me persist in seeking, till I have found, and am in full possession of Thee —Amen.

St. Augustine (354-430)

Most loving Lord, give me a childlike love of Thee, which may cast out all fear—Amen.

E. B. Pusey

But if I have to live with mystery and unanswered questions the rest of my life, I will still trust You. I will still love You. I will still obey You.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
