Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 1/31

A Prayer from Anselm of Canterbury
O my God teach my heart where and how to seek you,
where and how to find you…
You are my God and you are my All and I have never seen you.
You have made me and remade me,
You have bestowed on me all the good things I possess,
Still I do not know you…
I have not yet done that for which I was made….
Teach me to seek you…
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, let me love you when I find you.

O Lord, teach my heart
   where and how to seek you,
   where and how to find you..

You are my God,
you are my all -
   and yet I've never seen you...

You made me and you've remade me,
   you've bestowed on me
   every good thing I possess -
and still I do not know you
   and have yet to do
   that for which you made me...

Teach me to seek you, Lord,
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
   and let me desire you in my seeking...

Let me find you by loving you
   and let me love you when I find you...

Amen.
- from St. Anselm  1033-1109
