babbling on and on,
thinking the more we talk the more we will be heard.
Our prayers may become like that.
Our repeated questions, answers and cliches are
God is waiting in the spaciousness of silence…
Where no words are necessary
Where heaven becomes a hallowed space to enter
the kingdom come and the Fathers will is done
And all else will fall into place when we are able to wait in silence.
To become a real lover of the heart
Where being in presence is enough to be loved and loving God becomes prayer .
Come to prayer now and hold this space with God in your heart with a quiet stillness of being.
Let him begin to pour into you the confidence of being loved and that being is enough without words.
Breathe in the seeds of life that will become an expression of loving God in prayer.
“May the Lord direct your hearts in the love of God and to the endurance of Christ.” 2Thess.3:5
Now Lord as we leave this place of peace and stillness we ask for this presence of being to become an awareness of your presence in and through us this day.
May we use the gift of speech to plant seeds of life.
‘Let our one desire and choice be what is conducive to the end of which we are created, to the deepening of God's life in us.’
