Prayer

(inspired by Psalm 63:1,3)

 

O Jesus!

My soul thirsts for you! – for your Spirit’s living waters;
My whole being from the inside out yearns for your presence;
My personality clings to you to hold me together, upright;
My inner depths look up to you, longing for your smile;
My soul cries out to you, to flow in your life now and forever.

O Jesus!

Your love is better than life! – better than any other thing;
Your presence with me is the only thing that satisfies me;
Your personality – wonderfully complete – is what embraces me;
Your deep mercy and grace is all that I live for;
Your life in me and through me to others is my greatest joy.
