seeking God

Lord, teach us to seek you,
   and reveal yourself to us when we seek you.
For we cannot seek you unless you first teach us,
   nor find you except you reveal yourself to us.
Let us seek you in longing,
   and long for you in seeking;
 let us find you in love,
   and love you in finding.
O Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

St. Ambrose, c.339-397 Bishop of Milan
2000 Years of Prayer
