Prayer

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).

I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God (Isaiah 61:10; 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.
