Yes... forgive me! Forgive my boldness! Forgive Your slave who dares to raise his voice before His Master!

As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,..,So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has mercy on us” (Psalm 123:2)

O God... I wish I knew You, You who knows me profoundly

I have named you, though you have not known Me” (Isaiah 45:4)
"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 3:18)

I wish I knew You O strength of my soul! Reveal Yourself to me, O comforter of my soul! I wish that I could see You, O light of my eyes!

Open my eyes that I may see, wondrous things from Your law” (Psalm 119:18)
