Silence

Silence
 
O God of peace,

in the quiet room and the few words,

you know the deep needs of our hearts

and the ache of our longing.

In the silence sit with us

until we know we are heard

and can confidently make our reply.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Matthew 6: 5–8 (ESV)
 
5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.waiting_hands
