Thursday Prayer

give me a candle of the spirit, o god
as i go down into the deep of my own being
show me the hidden things -
take me down to the spring of my life
and tell me my nature and my name
give me freedom to grow
so that i may become my true self
the fulfillment of the seed
which you planted in me at my making
out of the deep
i cry unto thee, o god

(a prayer by George Appleton)

1902-1993 Anglican Bishop
