‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening’ (1 Samuel 3:9; NIV).
“When you pray, don’t babble on as people of other religions do” (Matthew 6:7; NLT).
Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT).
If only you would listen to his voice today! (Psalm 95:7; NLT).
Here is one of the most important texts
In the Bible:
For your servant is listening.
But from the way we babble on in prayer,
Anyone would think it means:
For your servant is speaking!
May your Holy Spirit
Help us to wait on you in silence,
Ready to hear your voice today,
And do your will.
In Jesus’ name,
