Prayer

Silent prayer

No one has ever seen God (John 1:18; NLT).

I can’t even imagine the greatness of his power (Job 37:5; NLT).

Your own ears will hear him (Isaiah 30:21; NLT).

After the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; KJV).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

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

……………………………………………………………..

 

Lord,
Our eyes can’t see you,
Nor can our words
Describe your greatness,
Or your power;

But our ears can hear
Your precious, still, small voice,
And our hearts can receive
Your love, in silent prayer.

Standard
Prayer

Union

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

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength (Mark 12:30; NLT).

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

 

When words run out,
And only love remains,
Then contemplation
Reaches its true goal
Of union with you,
Almighty God.
