You know the innermost fears of our soul:
The worry, the expectancy, the milling about of the mind.
When I seek you I am distracted. When I run after you I am lost.
I search for you but cannot find you. I cannot find myself.
No one knows their own heart, it is deceitful.
Teach me to know myself as you do, in the stillness.
The groaning of my soul is a calling from deep to deep.
Your Spirit hears and responds in mediation.
Let me be still this day. Remove from me my worries and cares.
Let my mind, heart, soul and body be filled with the breath of God.
-Thom Turner at Everyday Liturgy
