A Prayer for Fervor

image-miraculeuseO Lord my God, teach my heart this day where and how to see Thee, where and how to find Thee. Thou hast made me and remade me, and Thou hast bestowed on me all the good things I possess–and still I do not know Thee. I have not yet done that for which I was made.

Teach me to seek Thee, for I cannot seek Thee unless Thou teachest me, or find Thee unless Thou showest Thyself to me.

Let me seek Thee in my desire, let me desire Thee in my seeking. Let me find Thee by loving Thee, and let me love Thee when I find Thee. Amen.

ST. ANSELM
