4.4.23: You hear each word

Yesterday, when I woke in the middle of the night, the first verse of today’s blog came straight into my mind. I knew I had to write it down, before I forgot it. Then the second verse arrived, line by line, until the prayer was finished, and I fell asleep again.

In the morning I remembered what had happened, but retained no memory of what I’d written. Full of curiosity, I opened my iPad to find out. It needed very little editing to make it work:

LORD, you know my heart. You see me and test my thoughts (Jeremiah 12:3; NLT).


You hear each word I say,
And see the thoughts within my mind,
You know the feelings in my heart –
Our souls are intertwined.

You know the secrets in my past,
And all the wrongs I’ve ever done,
And yet, you love me as I am –
And want us to be one.

The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).


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

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

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

The LORD’s light penetrates the human spirit, exposing every hidden motive (Proverbs 20:27; NLT).
