A prayer that the Holy Spirit search our hearts

All-knowing God, you are the One who sees all and is through all. Father, so often we speak as if we know and understand the mysteries of life and behave like there are things which we can hide from you. Jesus, we treat you as if your understanding is like our knowledge and we fail to grasp the extent of your awareness of all things, even the things within the depth of our souls. Forgive us. Holy Spirit, would you search our hearts, illuminate our minds and graciously uncover more of the true riches and treasures that are contained in your good purposes for us? That the name of Jesus may be praised. Amen.

David Nixon, ex-President, Methodist Church in Ireland
