desiring and finding

O Lord our God,
grant us to desire you with all our heart,
that so desiring, we may seek and find you;
and so finding you we may hate those sins
from which you have redeemed us;
for the sake of Jesus Christ.

St. Ambrose, c.339-397 Bishop of Milan

The Westminster Collection of Christian Prayers

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus
and your love for all God’s people,
I have not stopped giving thanks for you,
remembering you in my prayers.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,
may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation,
so that you may know him better.
