Lord I want to want You

From A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God:
    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 I may know You indeed.
    Begin in mercy a new work of love within me…
    Give me grace to rise and follow You up from this misty lowland
    where I have wandered so long.
    In Jesus’ name. Amen.
