You’re not hiding

 

Father,
You’re not hiding –
You are everywhere we go.

Father,
You’re not hiding –
You’re in everything we see.

Father,
You’re not hiding –
You’re in everyone we meet.

Father,
You’re in every soul on earth –
Including me!

I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me (Psalm 139:7-10; NLT).

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

 

Standard
Prayer

Far, near, and everywhere

“Am I a God who is only close at hand?” says the LORD. “No, I am far away at the same time. […]  Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” (Jeremiah 23:23-4; NLT).


Lord,
On the days
When you seem far away
I reach out to you
Across a vast and empty space
As best I can;

And on the days
When you seem near,
I reach in to you,
Deep within my heart and soul
As best I can;

For you are far away,
And near,
Within, without –
And everywhere.

Standard
Prayer

Always and everywhere

Always and everywhere

“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me” (Jeremiah 29:13-14; NIV).

“Keep on seeking, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).


Father,
I seek you with all my heart.

May I find you
Always and everywhere –

In town
And country,

In sound
And silence,

In movement
And stillness,

In darkness
And light,

In company
And solitude,

In joy
And grief,

In life,
And in death.

Lord,
May I find you
Always and everywhere –

In the name
Of your dear Son.

Amen.
