Forsyth: to seek God
Commemoration of Crispin & Crispinian, Martyrs at Rome, c.285
I love those who love me,
and those who seek me find me.
—Proverbs 8:17 (NIV)
If prayer is not a play of the religious fantasy, or a routine task, it must be the application of faith to a concrete actual and urgent situation. Only remember that prayer does not work by magic, and that stormy desire is not fervent, effectual prayer. You may be but exploiting a mighty power; whereas you must be in real contact with the real God. It is the man that most really has God that most really seeks God.
... P. T. Forsyth (1848-1921), The Soul of Prayer , Regent College Publishing, 2002, p. 76 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, draw me closer to You.
