Prayer to seek God with the same passion as St. Augustine

Philip Kosloski - published on 08/28/22

Pray that you may be given the same spirit that inspired St. Augustine to thirst after God.

St. Augustine is widely known for his passionate love of God, thirsting after ultimate union with the Creator of all things.

His love of God can inspire in us a similar way, yearning for God with a heart on fire with love.

Here is the collect prayer for the feast of St. Augustine, asking God to grant us the same passionate spirit.

Renew in your Church,
we pray, O Lord, that spirit with which you endowed your Bishop Saint Augustine
that, filled with the same spirit,
we may thirst for you, the sole fount of true wisdom,
and seek you, the author of heavenly love.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
