Writer's Wednesday -- St. Anselm

O Lord my God,
teach my heart this day where and how to see You,
where and how to find You.
You have made me and remade me,
and You have bestowed on me
all the good things I possess,
and still I do not know You.
I have not done that
for which I was made.
Teach me to seek You,
for I cannot seek You
unless You teach me,
or find You
unless You show Yourself to me.
Let me seek You in my desiring.
Let me desire You in my seeking.
Let me find You by loving You,
Let me love You when I find You.
----St. Anselm, (died 21 April, 1109.)
