Today We Pray

Dear Lord, I pray that You will make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge. Let me know by love what I know by understanding. I owe You more than my whole self, Lord.

But I have no more, and by myself I cannot render the whole of it to You. Draw me to you, Lord, in the fullness of Your love. I am wholly Yours by creation; make me all Yours, too, in love.

Because You have made me, I owe You the whole of my love. Because You have redeemed me, I owe You the whole of myself. Because You have promised so much, I owe You my whole being.
