Wandering for too long in the misty lowland

I've come to adore reading prayers of other Believers. Their words of adoration, consecration, faith and hope encourage my own.

These prayers have become so valuable to me that I'm going to start sharing them here.

The following prayer by A.W. Tozer is one that states so well my own longing to want God more:

O God, I have tasted your goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want you; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me your glory, I pray, so that I may know you indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, 'Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.' Then give me grace to rise and follow you up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.
