Prayer that your soul will be pierced with the love of God

Ask God to come into your soul with his love.

How often do we ask God to love us? It is too easy to forget that the spiritual life is essentially about loving God and receiving his love into our heart.

Here is a short prayer from the 19th-century devotional The Glories of the Catholic Church that asks God to pierce our soul with his love.

Sweetest Jesus, pierce my very soul with the tender wound of your love, that it may ever languish and be dissolved in the desire of possessing you in a happy eternity. May my soul ever thirst after you, ever seek you, and at length find you, speak only of you, and do all for your glory. May my heart be ever fixed in your heart, my hope, my riches, my peace, my refuge, my confidence, treasure, and my inheritance.
