A Prayer by John Owen

“Holy Spirit, please handle this request gently. I know you will. It feels like a risk, but I can hear myself whispering this prayer, ‘I pray with all my heart that I may be weary of everything else but…communion with Him.’ I think you are already answering that prayer. Pleasures that used to excite me greatly, now excite me less. I’m feeling more empty, more often.”

-John Owen (Puritan theologian 1616-1663)
