Another Prayer Option

Let your Scriptures be my chaste delight…
O Lord, perfect me and reveal those pages to me!
See, your voice is my joy. Give me what I love…
May the inner secrets of your words be laid open to me when I knock.
This I beg by our Lord Jesus Christ in whom are hidden all the
treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col 2:3)
These are the treasures I seek in your books.

– St. Augustine, Confessions, bk 11, ch 2, nos 2-4
