Ambrose' Prayer

Several of you have asked for a copy of the prayer I read before the morning services on Sunday (June 19, 2011). Here it is:
O Lord
teach me to seek you,
and reveal yourself to me
when I seek you.

For I cannot seek you unless
you first teach me,
nor find you unless
you first reveal yourself to me.

Let me seek you in longing,
and long for you in seeking.

Let me find you in love,
and love you in finding.

- Ambrose of Milan, c. 340 – 397 (HT: Trevin Wax)
