Prayer

Speak, Lord

Speak, Lord 

‘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).


Friends,
Here is one of the most important texts
In the Bible:

Speak, Lord,
For your servant is listening.

But from the way we babble on in prayer,
Anyone would think it means:

Listen, Lord,
For your servant is speaking!

Father,
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,
Amen.
