For God alone my soul waits in silence (Psalm 62:1; ESV).

In the depths of contemplation,
In the silence of my soul,
I find you, Lord, my God.

Wordless

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

[The] Spirit intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words (Romans 8:26; NRSV).

…………………………………………………………….

 

Lord God,
In silent prayer,
I sometimes feel

As if my mind
Will burst
With wordless joy,

Or that my heart
Will break
With wordless grief.

Then my soul
Melts away
In wordless bliss,

To unify
With yours,
In wordless love.

Whatever happens

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16; NIV).

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart (John 14:27; NLT).

…………………………………………………………………………..

 

Whatever happens
To my flesh,
And bones,
And blood, Lord,

May I have
Peace of mind,
And heart,
And soul.

Close

Come close to God, and God will come close to you (James 4:8; NLT).

The Lord is close to all who call on him (Psalm 145:18; NLT).

He is close to those who trust in him (Nahum 1:7; NLT).

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

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

Lord God,
You are as close to me
As breathing,

As close as the thoughts
In my mind,

And the feelings
In my heart –

For you dwell
In my soul.
