This prayer reveals to us the feeling of need for the Divine that leads one straight to the goal without any complexities and perplexities.
February 10, 1913
MY being goes up to Thee in thanksgiving, not because Thou usest this weak and imperfect body to manifest Thyself, but because Thou dost manifest Thyself, and that is the Splendour of splendours, the Joy of joys, the Marvel of marvels. All who seek Thee with ardour should understand that Thou art there whenever there is need of Thee; and if they could have the supreme faith to give up seeking Thee, but rather to await Thee, at each moment putting themselves integrally at Thy service, Thou wouldst be there whenever there was need of Thee; and is there not always need of Thee with us, whatever may be the different, and often unexpected, forms of Thy manifestation?
Let Thy glory be proclaimed,
Let life be sanctified by it,
Let it transform men’s hearts,
Let Thy Peace reign on earth.”
The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)
