A Prayer of St. John Scholasticus

My God, I pretend to nothing upon this earth,
except to be so firmly united to you by prayer
that to be separated from you may be impossible;
let others desire riches and glory;
for my part, I desire but one thing,
and that is to be inseparably united to you,
and to place in you alone
all my hopes of happiness
and repose.

Inseparable from God.. the only thing that we should focus on and keep asking God about.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful prayer
