Lord, I do not know what to ask of Thee;
Thou alone knowest what is needed for me.
Thou lovest me more than I know how to love Thee.
O Father, give to Thy slave that for which I do not even know how to plead.
I do not dare to ask for either a cross or for consolation;
I am only standing before Thee with my heart open to Thee.
Thou seest my needs, which I do not even know.
See and deal with me according to Thy mercy.
Purge and heal me, humble me and raise me;
I am in awe before Thee and I am silent before Thy will and Thine unfathomable ways for me.
I am bringing myself as a sacrifice to Thee; teach me to pray.
Pray Thyself within me.
