Asking For the Gift of HImself

From  C. S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms  (Harcourt Brace, 1958), 52-53
There, despite the presence of elements we should now find it hard to regard as religious at all, and the absence of elements which some might think essential to religion, I find an experience fully God-centered, asking of God no gift more urgently than His presence, the gift of Himself, joyous to the highest degree, and unmistakably real. What I see (so to speak) in the faces of these old poets tells me about the God whom they and we adore. 
Have you asked Him for the gift of Himself today?
