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).

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!

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,
