Beneath my outward self

Today’s prayer follows directly on from yesterday’s:

In his shadow have I rapture (Song of Songs 2:3; DYB).

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

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; KJV).

Beneath my shadow self:
Your peace.

Beneath that peace:
Your wordless rapture.

Lord,
Beneath that wordless rapture:
You.
