O Lord, You know all my longing:
my groans are not hidden from You.

Lord, my desire is for You – and yet I keep doors open for the possible fulfillment of lesser desires. Help me follow the corridor that leads straight to You – and stop peeking through other doors along the way. I trust that in my union with You, all my desires – and more – are truly fulfilled. Amen. Aum….
