How long, Lord?

Lord, you are my God and you are my Lord, and I have never seen you. You have made me and remade me, and you have given me all the good things I possess, and still I do not know you. I was made in order to see you, and I have not yet done that for which I was made.

Lord, how long will be? How long, Lord, will you forget us? How long will you turn face away from us? When will you look upon us and hear us? When will you enlighten our eyes and show us your face? When will you give yourself back to us?

- Saint Anselm of Canterbury

  1. This prayer had me locked in until the end. So powerful. Something inside me was shouting "amen!" at every line. Feeling a bit southern baptist now but- "AMEN!"
