A Prayer to See

October 27, 2011

LORD JESUS CHRIST,

Fill me with the Spirit that I may be occupied with his presence.
I am blind – send him to make me see;
dark – let him say, “Let there be light’!
May he give me faith to behold
my name engraven in thy hand,
my soul and body redeemed by thy blood,
my sinfulness covered by the life
of pure obedience.
Replenish me by his revealing grace,
that I may realise my indissoluble union with thee;
that I may know thou has espoused me
to thyself for ever,
in righteousness, love, mercy, faithfulness;
that I am one with thee,
as a branch with its stock, as a building
with its foundation.

The Valley of Vision, p. 54
