July 22 Prayer
‘I am standing in absolute stillness,
Silent before the one I love,
Waiting as long as it takes for
him to rescue me.’ Ps.62:5
There is something about standing
That’s a hard one when you want to do just the opposite.
To make things happen, to fight the battle and
take charge of the situation.
Standing still before the one I Love
The one I love
Is the one who loves me,
Who is looking out for me,
running towards me,
coming to the rescue.
I just need to stand still and wait.
Pause here a moment and
feel the stillness in waiting.
Feel the assurance of His love.
Feel His strength and
power to rescue,
to make what is wrong right.
“God is the one whose contemplation refreshes,
Whose love satisfies,
Whose mirror reflects all things flawlessly.
Look into that mirror each and every day.”*
‘Today I turn and look into your mirror
The one that I see is the one I love
Looking back at me.
The one who reflects all things flawlessly
Because you know the ending of everything.
Help me Lord,
to love you with all of my heart
in the waiting and to be able to stand still
and strong and not be toppled over by the pressures that surround me.
May I be able to stand upright in your love to bring this assurance to the world around me.’
