Silence

"My soul, wait in silent submission for God only,
for my enduring hope is from Him." Psalm 62:5

Father,

Grace me with silence,
So to soul-kneel before You.

Grace my hearing
To silence all out,
So  to hear You alone.

Grace my thoughts,
Of yesterday, today, and tomorrow,
To silence there rushing in,
So to think of You alone.

Grace my feelings,
Of envy, anger and worry,
To silence there noise.,
So to love You alone.

Grace my will
So to silence MY will-speak,
So towill Your Will alone.

Then,
Silent, world-shut,
I pray slowly:

"Our Father...."

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
