Great Prayer

At the Summit this past weekend, after a wonderful exposition on the immensity of God, Pastor J.D. encouraged us to pray this prayer throughout the week. I thought I would share it.

God, I have tasted thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more...I am ashamed at my lack of desire. Oh God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be more thirsty still. Show me thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long.
A.W. Tozer, Pursuit of God

P.S. I read this book while at CIU and it changed me.
