Teach My Heart – A Prayer of St Anselm

For those of you who read my most recent post of a little meditation on tom hanks movie castaway, I think this prayer is a good one for those of us looking for God.

My Path to Faith

A Prayer of St Anselm

St Anselm

O Lord my God,

Teach my heart this day where and how to see you,

Where and how to find you.

You have made me and remade me,

And you have bestowed on me

All the good things I possess,

And still I do not know you.

I have not yet done that

For which I was made.

Teach me to seek you,

For I cannot seek you

Unless you teach me,

Or find you

Unless you show yourself to me.

Let me seek you in my desire,

Let me desire you in my seeking.

Let me find you by loving you,

Let me love you when I find you.

St. Anselm
