Prayer

Presence

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).

 

Lord God,
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
In solitude.

Please help us, Lord,
To seek your holy presence,

Then to listen humbly,
And to learn.
