I Am Desperate

I am desperate for your love, Lord. My heart is aflame with fervent passion. When I remember the good things you have done, my heart burns with desire to embrace you.

How Good It Is to Love You

My Jesus, from all eternity you were pleased to give yourself to us in love. And you planted within us a deep spiritual desire that can only be satisfied by yourself.

God’s Presence in My World

Help me today to realize that you will be speaking to me through the events of the day, through people, through things, and through creation.

A Godly Meditation

Give me Your grace, good Lord, to set the world at nought, to set my mind fast upon You. And not to hang upon the blast of men’s mouths. To be content to be solitary. Not to long for worldly company, little and little utterly to cast off the world, and rid my mind of… Continue reading A Godly Meditation

God Speaking Through Events

You speak, Lord, to us in general through general events. Revolutions are simply the tides of your Providence, which stir up storms and tempests in people’s minds. You speak to us in particular through particular events, as they occur moment by moment. But instead of hearing your voice, instead of respecting events as signals of… Continue reading God Speaking Through Events

God Be in My Head

God be in my head and in my understanding. God be in my eyes and in my looking. God be in my mouth and in my speaking. God be in my heart and in my thinking. God be at my end and my departing.
