Prayer

Eternal God

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Be still before the Lord (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patent God is with you? (Romans 2:4; NLT).

For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours (Psalm 90:4; NLT).

The eternal God is your refuge (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).


Lord,
It takes me ages
To deal with
All the thoughts,
Worries,
And prayers
That crowd into my mind,
As I work my way
Towards becoming
Silent
And still
Before you.

But I know
You’re not impatient –
For to you
A thousand years
Are like a day,
And a day
Is like a thousand years,
Eternal God.
