Wait patiently for the Lord (Psalm 27:14; NLT).

1. Here I am, Lord,
In silence,
For your voice.

2. Here I am, Lord,
In stillness,
Till you stir.

3. Here I am, Lord,
All alone,
For your embrace.

4. Here I am, Lord,
In the dark,
To see your face.


1. Here I am, Lord (Acts 9:10; NIV).

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

After the fire [came] a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; NKJV).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

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

An angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had (John 5:4; NKJV).

I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea (Isaiah 51:15; NLT).

The Lord is the one who shaped the mountains [and] stirs up the winds (Amos 4:13; NLT).

3. When you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private (Matthew 6:6; NLT).

He returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him (Luke 15:20; NLT).

4. Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night (Luke 6:12; NLT).

I will see your face (Psalm 17:15; NKJV).

  • Waiting is the hardest part of prayer, and particularly for the young generation used to instant stuff. Waiting is a work of grace for sure. God bless you Ruth.

    • In a sense, my whole life is about waiting, until I see God. Your words instantly inspired a little prayer, which I’m working on right now! Thank you XXXX
