Two Short Prayers

There are two short prayers I have picked up that I find short but profound:

The first comes from John Piper:

Father,
Incline my heart towards You,
Open my heart towards You,
Unite my heart to You,
Satisfy my heart with You.

Each of those four verbs describe something very significant and vital in our relationship with God, and something we cannot do without God’s help.
The second comes from Ken Boa’s superb magnum opus Conformed to His Image:

Jesus,
may I know thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly.
