Prayer is much less about what we want to say to God,
And much more about what he wants to say to us.

This is because before a word is on our lips,
Or a thought comes into our minds,
Or a longing enters our hearts,

He already knows it


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

Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NLT).

O that today you would listen as he speaks! (Hebrews 4:7; NET).

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! (Matthew 11:15; NLT).

Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely (Psalm 139:4; NIV).

I know everything that comes into your minds (Ezekiel 11:5; NLT).

He knows the secrets of every heart (Psalm 44:21; NLT).

      • No, you’re right – it doesn’t end. Struggling with my symptoms at present. Next intravenous infusion next week, alongside a raft of other postponed treatments. Hope you are having a manageable weekend xxxxx

      • I’m sorry to hear that your struggling, Ruth. I hope the chest infection eases off soon which might help to stabilise things a bit. xxx
