Today’s prayer arrived yesterday, shortly after I woke up:
Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT).
I worship you in silence, Lord,
In stillness, and in darkness,
Astonished by your majesty,
Your changelessness, your power,
And yet you are so gentle, Lord,
Your love so warm and bright,
So pure and sweet,
And so I dare to worship you,
Repeat your name, rejoice,
And kiss your feet.
A woman in the town who was a sinner found out that Jesus was reclining at the table in the Pharisee’s house. She brought an alabaster jar of perfume and stood behind him at his feet, weeping, and began to wash his feet with her tears. She wiped his feet with her hair, kissing them and anointing them with the perfume (Luke 7:37-8; CSB).
Who can know the LORD’s thoughts? (Romans 11:33; NLT).
We cannot imagine the power of the Almighty (Job 37:23; NLT).
He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle (Isaiah 42:3; NLT).
He loves us with unfailing love; the LORD’s faithfulness endures forever (Psalm 117:2; NLT).
