A Prayer

O Lord, how dry I am without Jesus.
How foolish and vain
When I desire anything but him.
For what, without Jesus, can the world
give me?
Let me love all things for the sake of Jesus
But let me love Jesus for his own sake.


ADAPTED FROM THE IMITATION OF CHRIST,
THOMAS À KEMPIS (1380–1471)


Read a meditation on this idea.
