(A favorite of Rev. Dr. Larry Grimes, Bethany)

O Lord my God,
Teach my heart this day where and how to see you, where and
how to find you. You have made me and remade me, and you have bestowed on me all the good things I possess, and still I do not know you. I have not yet done that for which I was made. Teach me to seek you, for I cannot seek you unless you teach me, or find you unless you show yourself to me. Let me seek you in my desire, let me desire you in my seeking. Let me find you by loving you, and let me love you when I find you.
