Prayer: Abbott Gilbert of Hoyland

When, good Lord, will you manifest yourself to us in bright sunshine? Yes, we are slow to understand and slow to see, but we are quick to believe, and we believe that if you chose to reveal yourself to us, you could do so this very day. O Lord, please appear to us, at dawn or at dusk or at the height of the day. Come to our table at mealtimes, that we may share our meals with you. Come to our bed, that we may share our rest with you. Come to us at our prayers, that we may rejoice and be glad.
