Today’s prayer comes from St. Augustine of Hippo:
Appear upon us, O Lord,
and let all the darkness of our souls
vanish ahead of the beams of your brightness.
Fill us with holy really like,
and open to us the treasures of your wisdom.
All our wish is identified unto you,
hence excellent what you have begun,
and what your spirit has awakened us
to ask in prayer.
We seek your face,
turn your face unto us and show us your glory.
Then shall our longing be satisified,
and our peace shall be excellent.
