a diary of private prayer : 12th day, morning

"For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen:
For the strong sense I have that this is not my home:
For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy:
I give Thee thanks, O God.

For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit:
For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee:
For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ:
I give Thee thanks, O God."

"I, a pilgrim of eternity, stand before Thee, O eternal One.
Let me not seek to deaden or destroy the desire for Thee that disturbs my heart.
Let me rather yield myself to it's constraint and go where it leads me.
Make me wise to see all things today under the form of eternity,
and make me brave to face all the changes in my life which such a vision may entail:
through the grace of Christ my Saviour.
