Cloud of Unknowing: that I may perfectly love Thee

Saturday, March 26, 2022
    Feast of Harriet Monsell of Clewer, Religious, 1883
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord;
    my sighing is not hidden from you.
    —Psalm 38:9 (NIV)
    God, unto whom all hearts be open, and unto whom all will speaketh, and unto whom no privy thing is hid. I beseech Thee so for to cleanse the intent of mine heart with the unspeakable gift of Thy grace, that I may perfectly love Thee, and worthily praise Thee.
    ... The Cloud of Unknowing 14th century, ed. Evelyn Underhill, prologue (see the book)
    See also Ps. 38:9; 1:6; 7:9; 33:13-15; 51:7; 121:3-4; Matt. 6:32; Acts 15:8; Rom. 8:27; 1 Thess. 2:4; 1 John 4:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may be cleansed of sin.
