Prayer

SILENCE

Silence

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT).

Obey his commands, listen to his voice and cling to him (Deuteronomy 13:4; NLT).

What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation (Galatians 6:15; NLT).

Lord,
Waiting for you in silence
Is different every time…

Relaxing,
Restorative,
Or blissful;

Challenging,
Alarming,
Disturbing;

Inspiring,
Awesome –
Even revelatory;

For when you speak,
Our hearts
Are transformed,

And our lives
Turned
Upside down.
