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).
