In silent prayer

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

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

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

 

Lord God,
In silent prayer

Your waves of light,
Of beauty, peace, and love

Flow out to me,
And back from me to you,

For we
Are one.

Prayer

Waves

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me (Psalm 42:7; NIV).

Save me, O God, for the floodwaters are up to my neck. Deep and deeper I sink into the mire; I can’t find a foothold. I am in deep water, and the floods overwhelm me (Psalm 69:1-2; NLT).

“My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death” (Matthew 26:38; NIV).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! (Isaiah 61:10; NLT).


Lord,
Just as grief
Overwhelms us
In waves,
So does your love,
In contemplation.

Surfing

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me (Psalm 42:7; NIV).

The mighty waters engulfed me; I was buried beneath your wild and stormy waves (Jonah 2:3; NLT).

But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore – the LORD above is mightier than these (Psalm 93:4; NLT).

Kings will stand speechless in his presence (Isaiah 52:15; NLT).


Lord,
In contemplation,
I surf my breathing.

Again and again,
I try to catch a wave
And ride it towards you;
But a sea of problems
Swamps me,
Dragging me down
Into the depths.

Yet,
From time to time,
The surge lifts me up,
Sweeping me effortlessly
Into your presence,
And dropping me at your feet,
Where I am lost for words.
