Encounter His Presence

I read this prayer this morning, and it is inspiring me:

Lord, You love to speak,

even without the need for words.

You listen to our inmost thoughts

and draw our hearts to stillness.


Guard our hearing, Lord;

For listening is the gateway

to the intimate communion

that both we and You are longing for.


You taught us that the pure in heart are blessed,

for they will see God;

make our soul full of eyes

so that we can see and understand Your ways.



One word from You bestows direction

and kindles hope,

so never stop speakingto us.

Even if You have to say the same things

time and time again –


Even if it is not what we wanted to hear,

may we respond in faith and trust

until all that You purpose is accomplished.


As You show us where to go and what to do,

fill our hearts with a compassion

that mirrors Your own –

and may we take the beauty of Your presence wherever we go.


About stayingfaithful

I am looking for anything that relates to life and to a fuller life. I am bored by the normal and the natural and interested in the supernatural. There must be more than this. We were put on this earth for more than a nine to five prison, as someone said a few years ago.
