Prayer: Mechthild of Magdeburg

The person’s petition to God:

God, you are my lover,
My longing,
My flowing stream,
My sun,
And I am your reflection.

God’s response:

It is my nature that makes me love you often,
For I am love itself.
It is my longing that makes me love you intensely,
For I yearn to be loved from the heart.
It is my eternity that makes me love you long,
For I have no end.
