Prayer

We are one

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

There is one Lord…who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

 

I love you,
Father God,
And you love me.

Though in fact
There is no separate
I, or You

There’s only wholeness,
Unity,
And love,

For we are one.

I find you

“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

In the darkest recess
Of my mind,
I find you,
My Lord, my God.

In the saddest corner
Of my heart,
I find you,
My Lord, my God.

And in the loneliest depths
Of my soul,
I find you,
My Lord, my God.

After I’ve shared

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

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NIV).

Be still, and know that I am God! (Psalm 46:10; NLT).

Lord,
After I’ve shared
My last few words with you
In prayer,
There comes a silence –
The deep, untroubled silence
Of your peace;

And after I’ve shared
My last few thoughts with you
In contemplation,
There comes a stillness –
The rich, creative stillness
Of your bliss.

Is no surprise to you,
Because you know me.

What I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you hear me.

What I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you see me.

And what I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you love me.

Hide and seek

You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).

Please hide me
In the shadow of your wings,

And seek me out
Each time I go astray;

For I belong to you
Throughout my life,

And I want to serve you
More and more each day.
