Still and small

After the earthquake there was a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; KJV).

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



************************************************

 

Lord God,

Your voice within
Is still and small,

So we need silent prayer
In which to hear you.

Safely there!
