seeking the LORD

Rule of St. Benedict

Gracious and holy Father,
  give us wisdom to perceive you,
  intelligence to understand you,
  diligence to seek you,
  patience to wait for you,
  eyes to behold you,
  a heart to meditate on you,
  and a life to proclaim you;
through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

St Benedict of Nursia (Umbria, Italy) c.480 – C547, founder of western monasticism

Deuteronomy 4:29

But from there you will seek the LORD your God and you will find him,
if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.
