Lord, grant that my devotions not be an end within themselves.  May they be a means of expressing the devotion of my heart to You.  Teach me to embrace You by falling into Your loving embrace.  May my mind and spirit be truly connected to Your mind and Spirit.  I thirst for You as the fountain of living waters.  Spring up Oh Well!  Renew my passion for you!  Amen!

 “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God” Psalms 42:1-2a (NASB).
