In Silence

To pray in silence is one of my favorite forms of prayer.   Silently, I place myself in the presence of Lord.  I may sit or knell.  Typically, my eyes are closed, so as not to be distracted.

In stillness, I empty myself and desire only to be in His presence.  Before Him I place my heart, my fears, and that I am and am not.  Unbound by the inadequacy of my words, we embrace, to feel the presence of the other.

He may silently comfort me with His love and grace.  Or, He may whisper ever so softly and draw me in conversation.
