Thursday Prayer

Come now, dear friend,
turn aside for awhile
from your daily employment
escape for a moment from the tumult of your thoughts.

Case aside your weighty cares,
let your burdensome distractions wait,
free yourself awhile for God
and rest awhile in Him.

Enter the inner chamber of your soul,
shut out everything except God
and that which can help you in seeking Him,
and when you have shut the door, seek Him.

Now, my whole heart, say to God,
"I seek Your face,
Lord, it is Your face, I seek."

~~Saint Anselm (1033-1109)
