" 'Grant me Lord to know and understand' (Ps. 118: 34, 73, 144) which comes first - to call upon you or to praise you, and whether knowing you precedes calling upon you. But who calls upon you when he does not know you? For an ignorant person might call upon someone else instead of the right one. But surely You may be called upon in prayer that You may be known. Yet how shall they call upon Him in whom they did not believe? And how shall they believe without a preacher? They will praise the Lord who seek for him.In seeking him, they find him, and in finding they will praise him. Lord, I would seek you, calling upon you- and calling upon you is an act of believing in you."
