Be still before the LordPsalm 37:7
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Prayer for yourself and people on your prayer list…
Open our minds that we may read
More of Thy love in word and deed;
What shall we fear while yet Thou dost lead?
Only for light from Thee we plead.
- Heavenly Father your ways are above our ways; you are all-seeing and all-knowing
- As we meditate on your word and how you have led us in the past, calm our anxious, fretful souls
- We know that you love us and care for us
- You will finish the work that is carried out for your Name’s sake
- At times wicked people will have success in their schemes but you rule the vast universe with truth and justice
- We trust your wisdom and your timing; we lay aside our limited perspective
- We rest in your grace and power to bring forth righteousness now and forever more
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit Divine!
