Contemplation

Contemplation

Sing to him a new song; play skilfully and shout for joy
(Psalm 33:3; NIV).

David was dancing before the Lord with all his might
(2 Samuel 6:14; NIV).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him
(Psalm 37:7; NIV).

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


Lord,
I wish I could leap,
And dance,
And sing for joy
Before you.

But I can only
Lift my mind
And heart
And soul,
To worship you
In stillness,
And in silence.

And when he comes, he will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf. The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! (Isaiah 35:5-6; NLT).

A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all (Matthew 15:30; NLT).

Lord,
I am blind –
Please heal me,
So I can see your face.

I am deaf –
Please heal me,
So  can hear your voice.

I am lame –
Please heal me,
So I can dance with joy.

I am dumb –
Please heal me,
So I can sing your praise.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
