HUNGER FOR GOD
"Almighty and eternal God,
Thou art hidden from my sight;
Thou are beyond the understanding of my mind;
Thy thoughts are not as my thoughts;
Thy ways are post finding out.
Yet hast Thou breathed Thy Spirit into my life;
Yet hast Thou formed my mind to seek Thee;
Yet hast Thou inclined my heart to love Thee;
Yet hast Thou made me restless for the rest that is in Thee;
Yet has Thou planted within me a hunger and thirst that make me dissatisfied with all the joys of earth.
O Thou who alone knowest what lies before me this day, grant that in every hour of it I may stay close to Thee. Let me be in the world, yet not of it. Let me use the world without abusing it. If I buy, let me be as though I possessed not. If I have nothing, let me be as though possessing all things. Let me today embank on no undertaking that is not in line with Thy will for my life, nor shrink from any sacrifice which Thy will may demand. Suggest, direct, control every movement of my mind; for my Lord Jesus Christ's sake."
This is another of the prayers I love from the A Diary if Private Prayer by John Bailee
