only you can set my heart at rest.
Only you can let me dwell in your presence.
No book, no concept or theory will ever bring me close to you
unless you yourself are the one who lets them become the doors to you.
But Lord, let me at least remain open to your initiative.
Let me wait patiently and attentively for the hour when you will come
and break through the walls I have erected.
Create new doors.
Teach me, O Lord, to pray
... a prayer from Henri Nouwen
