Here I sit in the silence, awaiting the sound of Your voice. I come before the LORD, my God, in a posture of humility. For He inspires awe in my soul. O God, holy and just, truth and life, I am desperate for Your presence. Look upon the lowly estate of Your servant, O LORD, and rescue me. For I cannot save myself. Jesus, I will wait for You in holy expectation as Your bride. Oh, how my heart does thrill at knowing I am Your beloved. Your love is the only food I need, for You are the bread of life. Your light is the only guide I need, for You Jesus are the way. When all around me is a cacophony of noise and chaos, enable me to find You in the quiet places. I will search for You, my LORD, even when distractions consume me. I will seek You with all of my heart because I belong to You. My only desire is to reach for Your outstretched hand and never let go. Hold me in the midst of the storm for You, O God, are my shelter. Lead me along the straight and narrow path for You, my LORD, know my way. Tender my heart that I might feel Your love with me always. Cleanse me from the stains this world has inflicted upon me. For I will rejoice in silent revelry as the sound of Your voice soothes my aching heart and breathes life to my empty soul. Under the Word of God in Psalm 41:11-13 and the authority of Christ I bow in prayer.
By this I know that You delight in me:
my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.
But You have upheld me because of my integrity,
and set me in Your presence forever.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!
Amen and Amen.
Psalm 41:11-13, ESV
