Quaker Meeting

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

Where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them (Matthew 18:20; NET).

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

Lord God,

In this precious hour
Of silence,

May we each see
Only what we need to see,

Hear
Only what we need to hear,

Learn
Only what we need to learn,

And say
Only what we need to say.

Faith

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1; NLT).

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

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

……………………………………………

 

Lord,

Faith does not mean
Following lots of rules –

It means seeing you
In your created world,

Loving you
In everyone we meet,

And discovering you
Deep within ourselves.

Prayer

May I glimpse you

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

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge (Psalm 19:1-2; NIV).

In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

The Lord is near (Genesis 28:16; NLT).

…………………………………………….

 

May I glimpse you
In all I see,

And know you, Lord,
In all I hear.

May I touch you
In all I meet,

And find you, Lord,
For you are near.

Prayer

You see us

You are the God who sees me (Genesis 16:13; NLT).
No one has ever seen God (John 1:18; NLT).

The Lord hears my voice (Psalm 55:17; NLT).
God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

God now knows me completely (Acts 15:8; NLT).
How great is God – beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26; NIV).

God loves us (Romans 5:5; NLT).
I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

……………………………………………………………………………….

You see us, Lord,
But we cannot see you.

You hear us, Lord,
But we cannot hear you.

You know us, Lord,
But we cannot know you.

You love us, Lord,
And we can all love you!

Recognition

Suddenly their eyes were opened, and they recognised him (Luke 24:31; NLT).

O nations of the world, recognise the Lord (1 Chronicles 16:28; NLT).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Lord God,
May I recognise you today
In everything I see,
All those I meet,
And even in myself.
