Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 3/19

I need to remember this, Lord:
   just to sit in your presence, in silence,
      is a prayer...

To find a quiet place,
   to remember you are near:
      this is a prayer...

To sit in the stillness,
   to ponder the mystery:
      this is a prayer...

To take a deep breath,
   to inhale your peace:
      this is a prayer...

To hear my heart beat,
   the pulse of your presence:
      this is a prayer...

To close my eyes to the world around,
   to open my heart to you within,
      this is a prayer...

To open my hands, let go my worry
   and wait to be filled:
      this is a prayer...

Though my heart find no words,
   you hear my silent prayer,
      in the stillness, close by your side...

When I struggle to find even one word to say
   you know before I
      what my soul wants to pray...

When my prayer spills out all jumbled,
   you know precisely
      what my heart intends...
      
When I can't hear your voice
   I trust that your silence
      begins to answer my prayer...

You read my mind and all of my thoughts;
   you search my heart, its sorrows and joys;
      you know my plea before I pray...

I need to remember this, Lord:
   just to sit in your presence, in silence,
      is a prayer...
