Help me to seek you

When you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private (Matthew 6:6; NLT).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; 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).

If only you would listen to his voice today! (Psalm 95:7; NLT).

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

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

 

Lord,

Help me to seek you
In solitude,

Search for you
In darkness,

Wait for you
In stillness,

And listen for your voice
In silence,

So I may find you –
Deep within my soul.

Will I find me,
