hs-2009-25-c-large_webLet me be restless to see You,

obsessed with You,

maddened by the thought of You.

Make me think of nothing but You.

What else could possibly be fulfilling.

hs-2006-01-a-web_printNo matter if I come to You on my knees,

with tears in my eyes and a wail in my throat,

flickr-256755929-originalDespite my forgetfulness, You remember me.

Despite my fickleness, You are faithful to me.

Despite my shortsightedness, You always watch over me.

You are with me when I am not with You,

Loving me when I neglect You,

You are always and forever.

Make me to Know you, my God.

silhouettes-of-people-along-the-coast-watching-the-sunset_w725_h485Lord of all things, Mother of the universe, friend of every soul,

grant me the humility to realize the insignificance of my little self.

May I search every being I encounter and find you dwelling within them.

May I worship you in my every thought, word and deed.

Give me the fortitude to control my scattered mind,

that I may attain the wisdom I need to be of service to all beings.

Give me pure love and devotion for you.

Be near me always.
