Elijah

[Elijah] went into a cave […] and the word of the Lord came to him (1 Kings 19:9; NIV).

And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper (1 Kings 19:12; NLT).

Listen to his voice (Deuteronomy 13:4; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

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

Lord God,
Despite the passage
Of so many years

Since the holy, Hebrew prophet
Heard your voice,

We, too, still hear your whisper
In our hearts,

When we seek you out
In silent contemplation.
