A Prayer for Mid-Week

God, I give you the praise for days well spent. But I am yet unsatisfied, because I do not enjoy enough of you. I apprehend myself at too great a distance from you. I would have my soul more closely united to you by faith and love. You know Lord that I would love you above all things. You made me, you know my desires, my expectations. My joys all center in you and it is you that I desire. It is your favor, your acceptance, the communications of your grace that I earnestly wish for more than anything in the world.

Susanna Wesley (1669 – 1742)
