Silent worship

I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in words (2 Corinthians 12:4; NLT).

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

Worship the Lord in all his holy splendour (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).

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

 

When our words
Are inadequate
To praise you, Lord,
Silent worship
Is the only way ahead.

Peace, be still

Wait patiently (Psalm 37:7; NLT).

Their hearts are troubled like a wild sea in a raging storm (Jeremiah 49:23; NLT).

He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm (Nahum 1:3; NLT).

As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand (Exodus 33:22; NLT).

Peace, be still (Mark 4:39; KJV).

 

Please help me
To wait patiently
While this storm
Passes by,
As I repeat
Your words, Lord –
Peace, be still.

Peace, be still

He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need (Acts 17:25; NLT).

Their hearts are troubled like a wild sea in a raging storm (Jeremiah 49:23; NLT).

You are a refuge from the storm (Isaiah 25:4; NLT).

He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea be hushed (Psalm 107:29; ESV).

Peace, be still (Mark 4:39; KJV).

 

Your words
Are my food
And drink,

My medicine,
And my refuge
From life’s storms.

May they heal me
A thousand times
Each day, Lord –

Peace,
Be still.

Hidden

He is clothed in dazzling splendour (Job 37:22; NLT).

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

He will be called: Wonderful Counsellor (Isaiah 9:6; NLT).

How great is God – beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26; NIV).

 

Whether hidden
From our eyes
By dazzling light,

Or concealed from us
By clouds
And deepest darkness,

Lord,
You are wonderful
Indeed –

Beyond all words,
Beyond our
Understanding.

Silent worship

Hello, everyone. Sorry, I pressed the wrong button, and tomorrow’s prayer flew off in an instant to join you, even though I hadn’t finished it properly!

 

Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign LORD (Zephaniah 1:7; NLT).

Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT).

They will tremble in awe of the Lord and of his goodness! (Hosea 3:5; NLT).

Lord,
I worship you in silence,
For what words of mine
Could possibly express
Your goodness?

Beyond

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

How great is God – beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26; NIV).

God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14; NLT).

“I am the Lord, and I do not change” (Malachi 3:6; NLT).

The world and all its people belong to him (Psalm 24:1; NLT).

Beyond our words
And thoughts,

Beyond imagination,
And beyond our understanding,

You are who you are,
Unchanging God,

And we all
Belong to you.

Prayer

Thoughts, words, and deeds

Lord,
Please help me today
To notice my judgemental thoughts,
So I can hold them in check,
Changing them to blessings
Instead. 

Lord,
Please help me today
To know when I’m about to speak hurtfully,
So I can hold my words in check,
Finding something positive to say,
Instead.

And, Lord,
Please help me today
To stop myself from doing anything unkind,
Holding my impulses in check,
Then offering help,
Instead.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
