You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7).
Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).
God speaks again and again (Job 33:14; NLT).
Come into his presence (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).
You live within us all,
But we ignore, forget, or shut you out,
As best we can.
We don’t make space
To look for you in stillness;
We don’t wait silently
To hear your voice;
Nor do we spend time with you
Please help us, Lord,
To seek your holy presence,
Then to listen humbly,
And to learn.
