Lord, I have a list of things
I feel I need to do.
But You’ve asked me to stop and listen,
For a time, to You;
To put aside my thoughts and plans,
And just, in silence, wait…
To hear the words that You might speak
Into my heart today.
So, Lord, I humbly bow before You,
Shutting out the noise.
Here I’ll sit and wait on You,
Until I hear Your voice.
And even if I hear no words…
I still will know ‘tis true -
You gave me something most worthwhile…
Time alone with You!
“After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside
by himself to pray. When evening came,
he was there alone,”
Matthew 14:23 NIV
