God of all hiddenness who shows yourself in your being hidden,
who hides yourself in your disclosures,
we would know more of you of your goodness and your mercy,
of your large purposes and long-term dreams.
In your presence we become aware of how little we know of ourselves,
of our interests and passions,
of our fears and dreads,
of our own wonderments and gifts.
In your truthfulness, let us know more of you and in knowing you, ourselves as well.
We pray in the name of Jesus, where we see you fully, and ourselves clearly.
