After praying for others,
Then for myself,
I worship quietly.

Slowly, words dwindle;
Thoughts die away;
My breathing slows,

And in a silence beyond words,
Far beyond thought,
I enter your presence.

Here, I absorb your light and your love;
Receive your forgiveness and healing;
Drink in your strength and peace.

Here, you show me
All I need to learn.

My soul is united with yours.
You are all that matters.
May this moment never end.

My heart belongs to you.
My life is in your hands.
Do with me as you will.


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

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7).

Let it be to me according to your word (Luke 1:38; NRSV).
